U.S. Aid to Israel Equals $4.9 Million a Day for 64 Years
No one can say the U.S. hasn’t been generous towards Israel since it was founded in 1948.

Over a period of 64 years (including the 2013 budget request), the U.S. has given Israel more than $115 billion in military and foreign aid, which averages out to about $4.9 million a day.

American and Israeli officials are currently negotiating a new aid deal that would provide more money for a new missile defense program, Iron Dome. Previous funding requests approved $205 million for the project, and Israel is trying to secure at least that much if not more for future years.

Although some Republicans have tried to portray President Barack Obama as soft on Israel, his budget for Fiscal Year 2013 includes $3.1 billion in military aid for Israel, the most in 13 years.

Boycott them

Along with any other country that steals our tax money.

Why do have to prop up rich countries like

Isreal Germany Japan -We pay for thier defence and bail out their banks while the American people get screwed out of their jobs and homes..Absolutely disgusting the way we are being sold out by Repugnant and Demowitted politicians..

The aid is the tip of the iceberg -check out the loans we give Isreal -not sure what it is today but remember it being 16.9 billion a year and this was about 30 years ago

I'll guess congress and the president have stolen better than 100 trillion from us to give to despots dictators and all sorts of other detestables

Government is supposed to protect our freedom, our property, our privacy, not invade it. Ron Paul 2007

To get an accurate idea of the wealth transferred.

Convert the years Aid package to that years average price of gold.

A million Dollars in Aid today can buy 625 ounce of gold. In 1960, that million Dollars would buy 28,571 ounce of gold.

Free includes debt-free!

Odd that Israel is inflicted with a begging class.
