you are right it's sad for a nation to give billions of dollars to antoher nation for their military, social services and their entire existance and mislead it's own people on the expenditure, jeopordize it's own security by supporting actions of another nation that are are universally condemned. dont misconstrue my statements - I find religious extremism, and fundementalism so abhorant that I cant find words to describe it, I can't wait for a day we can all live without these people in all three of the major religions. I know Israel is also struggling with that within their own religion. I must tell you something - I do admire your robust free press and discussions - you should be proud of that- In US our democracy is in serious decline. See ... we find an agreement.
