I thought nanderle and a few others might be interested in this link to Miftah.

This photoessay shows some of the homes and lives that have been devastated by the Israelis as they build their own version of the Berlin Wall through the West Bank and Gaza. Remember, fellow citizens, we are paying for this nightmare with US taxpayer dollars earned by your toil and mine. YOUR money is given to Israel rather than to your schools, roads, military defense, health care facilities and so forth. To build a wall, kill and wound people you never met before, and divest them of their livelihoods.

Do you like working for the Israeli state? Do you want your money spent to make people homeless and destroy their ability to support themselves? Please consider the following:

1. Why do over $5 billion of your tax dollars go to Israel, which is in part used to build a neo-Communist prison wall that violates international law and human decency?

2. Why does the sixteenth wealthiest country in the world which is the size of New Jersey(yes, Israel), get more US aid than entire desperately poor regions of the world such as Central America and West Africa?

3. Is this situation being done in the best interest of YOU the taxpayer funder of Israel?

Thanks for the link to Charles "Ask not what Israel can do for you but what you can do for Israel" Krauthammer. My comments:

<>

We must all thank Krauthammer for bringing up the loan guarantee situation. Here is an explanation of this Zionist-sponsored swindle of the US taxpayer:

(from the WRMEA)

"U.S. policy since 1984 has been that economic assistance to Israel must equal or exceed Israel's annual debt repayment to the United States. Unlike other countries, which receive aid in quarterly installments, aid to Israel since 1982 has been given in a lump sum at the beginning of the fiscal year, leaving the U.S. government to borrow from future revenues. Israel even lends some of this money back through U.S. treasury bills and collects the additional interest."

If the Israelis were trying to contain terrorism, they would have built the fence along the green line (Israeli border). Instead they are building it throughout the West Bank--property which they are illegally occupying. Thank you, Krauthammer, for revealing that you don't understand international law.



<<"The fence would not even be a factor if it were not for the violence in the last few years," writes former chief U.S. Middle East negotiator Dennis Ross. "Truth be told, those responsible for the fence are Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades." >>

No, those responsible for building the fence are the Israelis and their supporters. Hamas, Islamic Jihad, et al are not building the fence.

<>

The US is a sovereign nation and it can withhold loan guarantees from any country for any reason it wants. Israel is a tin-cup beggar trying to scream at passerby that they are obligated to give him money. Pathetic.

<>

Personally, I would take all of Israel's aid money until they completely withdrew from the West Bank and flush the "road map" down the john. Then we might consider tossing them a quarter, after they apologize for deliberately targeting and killing US troops in the Mediterranean Sea, killing American citizens on the West Bank, breaking US and international law with previous taxpayer monies, sending spies against us and using that information to compromise our operatives in Russia and selling critical US technology to our sworn enemies.

<>

Which is exactly why we need to scrap the "road map", scrap aid to Israel and, in fact, scrap our sugar daddy relationship with the Israeli state altogether. They don't want peace and intend to break international law and continue as aggressive invaders indefinitely. Israel is a liability to the US and its time to cut them loose.
