What is benefit of Israel for the U.S. that deserves such a huge aid? "the only democracy in the middle east"? No way. The first rule of democracy is protecting minority rights. Schools are segregated, Arab Israelis cannot buy land in certain areas and they are treated like animals. The truth is that Israel is more of a liability to United States than an ally. The only reason that they receive all these aids at the expense of American tax payers is that foreign policy of Israeli is taken hostage by Israeli lobbyists.
