The Israel-firsters are pretty irrational.
Israel seems to be much better organized and armed than its neighbors, so if it was a true sovereign nation it would be able to win against Iran or whoever (IMO). If we weren't all up in everyone's business then maybe they could come to an agreement they were satisfied with.
We give more money to Israel's enemies, like you said.
I seriously doubt George Washington or the other Founders would approve. George Washington preached non-interventionism. Are they saying that they know better than George Washington? (this might work for the Founders worshippers)
I personally think the best case you can make for these types is to emphasize that we just simply don't have the money for this stuff. WE JUST DON'T HAVE THE MONEY.
