    Firstly, AIPAC is an AMERICAN organization which operates legally under US law like all the other PACs. Support for Israel is bi-partisan and if that bothers anti-semites it is because they are in the minority of a fringe group of bigots and racists. Iron Dome's technology will also protect AMERICAN bases and facilities in the Middle East and the technology that designed the system costs much less in Israel without the costly overruns of the US Defense Dept and the military industries. Two thirds of the military loans that Israel recieves from the CONGRESS has to be spent in the US on AMERICAN products like aircraft, weapons systems and ancillary equipment. This aid helps tp employ 70,000 AMERICAN workers in companies like Lockheed, Martin Marietta, General Dynamics, Boeing and Raytheon. Israel is the only country that has never defaulted on a loan payment to the US, unlike Britain, France, Germany and Japan. Why is there no outcry against funding Saudi Arabia's military? Or the millions GRANTED to organizations and states that support Hezbollah-the organization responsible for the greatest number of AMERICAN deaths till 9/11?
