I don't know if you want to believe me but making peace is much much cheaper and better investment. Also believe it or not, you the oppressed can always find ways to fight the occupation and make Isreal insecure so why spend this money on something useless. Try to create jobs for the young people whom you send to unjustified war....killing innocent people and destroying homes and uprooting trees will only back fire and cause more instability in israel.
