    So are you saying that Obama should not have signed the aide bill? What are you, anti-semitic? :rofl:

    He aided them last year and the year before, and the year before. Were you expecting something different? Were the Republicans in congress supposed to stall the bill until after Romney's visit?

    I heard someone said, "This Admin spends money like a drunken sailor!"

    But those Sailors took offense and said, "we sailors (hic) stop spending (hic) when we're out of money! "

    Israel does receive a vastly disproportionate amount of our foreign aid. Where are the congressmen standing up to put an end to it?

    They've been bought off and guilt tripped into supporting Israel. Why do you think they're given an all expense paid trip to Israel & the Holocaust museum as soon as they're elected?

    And if they don't support Israel, in their next election all of a sudden their opponent comes up with a LOT of campaign money.

    And this sellout of America's best interests is the ultimate expression of Republican/Democrat Bipartisanship.

    I would rather have Israel on our side in the Middle-East than any of those armpit Muslim Countries. In the end any money we send to Israel is a good investment. Just my oppinion.

    If we didn't make a habit of sticking our noses into every conflict over there it wouldn't be necessary to have Israel "on our side" with all the costs to the American taxpayer it involves.

    With a 14 trillion dollar debt and 120 trillion dollar future Social Security & Medicare obligations how many more of these expensive "alliances" can we afford?

    Pretty much Obama in a nutshell, at least until the election (and then, if he wins, we get to find out exactly what he did say to the Russians).

    Eliminate any aid to Israel. They have nothing to offer to the U.S. They are only a ongoing constant drain on the U.S. And by any rational estimate, they are an enemy to the U.S. Just think... U.S.S. Liberty... Pollard, etc., etc., etc.

    It bothers me more that we continue to give aid to nations that are openly hostile to us or just use the aid money to further oppress its citizens.

    Obama signs these kinds of bills on a regular basis. If Romney hadnt been going in Israel, we would never have heard a peep, much less all the airtime that this bill has received. You cant really take the Politics out of Politics i guess.. :)

    Appears that it takes Romney to get obama to do something positive for a change.

    Would you anti-Israel folks rather have OUR money go to the countries that hate us? The criminal obama would love to give our money to muslim countries.

    How about having our money stay in the pockets of the Americans who worked for it?
