    We've given Israel about a trillion dollars in weapons (adjusted for inflation), and countless votes of support in the UN. In return, have we gotten peace and stability in the Mideast? Are we anywhere nearer to peace now than 50 years ago? On the contrary, what our pro-Israel lobby here has gotten us is a war without end against the Moslem world. Iraq (4000 dead), Afghanistan (2000 dead). We supplied the weapons for Israel to attack Gaza, Syria and Lebanon (in the last three years alone). Now they want to attack Iran, Yemen and expand the Afghan war into Pakistan's tribal areas. Why is this in our interest?
