    All 'foreign aid' must be spent here in the US.  Most of the aid given Israel is for military items.  These contracts go to US defense manufacturers and that's what keeps this industry in business.  If the US didn't grant this subsidy our manufacturing capacity would shrink to the point where thousands of 'job specific' workers would be laid off and their skills lost.  Starting up these industries again from scratch during a national emergency would not be easy.

    If you don't like Jews, just say so...you don't need an excuse!

    Arabs and Jews are pushing for a 3rd world war.

    FYI:

    While Canada's aid to Israel has been very small, it is not zero.

    As for your question which I will respond to despite being Canadian myself:

    Your use of words is problematic.

    By using the word "patriotic" you are trying to imply that a patriotic American would have objections to foreign aid.

    By using the word "welfare" you imply it is about "welfare" when in reality, most of the aid is in the area of military aid. 

    Thus, the reality is that most Americans wouldn't object to foreign aid to Israel since most Americans are not anti Israel.

    Which is what this is really about, right?

    Anti Israel = against aid to Israel

    not anti Israel = not against aid to Israel

    But you pretend that it is more than that.

    The only thing they do here in the US, is working there pawn shops in broke cities like Detroit or Chicago, knowhatmean?

    That's nothing - the Federal (privately owned) Reserve (that has NO reserves of any kind) Bank (that isn't actually a bank) is conjuring trillions of dollars out of thin air every day...what's a paltry 3.8 billion? We'll never even know it is missing. Besides that Obama siphoned off ten trillion from America during his term as dictator in chief to get the UN set up to police the world.

    $3.8 billion? That’s about how much the US spends every 12 hours in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    It's all military aid. U.S. also gives Egypt $1.3 billion. Difference is, Israel has to spend almost $3 billion in the U.S.  Americans can't help it if Canadians are anti-Semitic bigots. Canada couldn't afford to give Israel any aid even if they weren't bigots.

       

    Canadians give Muslims in Canada exponentially more welfare than Israel gives all Muslims. Canadians must really love Muslims.

    I am a firm believer that charity begins at home. I find it appalling that there are starving children and poverty in America, but $50 billion of our tax dollars are given away every year for foreign aid. 

    It is a pathetic embarrassment. We need to help our own before giving our money away to help others. Yes, we do help our own, but not enough.
