U.S. Public No Longer Supports Taxpayer Money to Israel

American Public Wants Tax Payer Funds Invested on Main Street USA, NOT  Tel Aviv

With Democracy breaking out in the Middle East as the 21st Century Facebook Generation of Arab youth topple the 20th Century dictators, American foreign policy in the Middle East is being led by its tail to the future forcing U.S. Think Tanks into hyperdrive.

As it once stood, the argument that Israel is the only free democracy in the region as the cause celeb for our billions in yearly support is becoming a 21st century non-starter.

In fact, A Veterans Today informal phone poll shows that 76% of American Citizens no longer support financial aid to Israel.

Some cite the flowering calls for freedom, liberty, and justice in the Arab world as the reasons for their questioning our billions sent to Israel.  Some say pay them for what?  Let them manage their own affairs.

But after further digging, it’s much more apparent that economics as home is a much more powerful engine driving this change in public attitude.

For example, the union fight between the workers of Wisconsin and the GOP bent on breaking the unions is one very serious issue that is breaking America’s back.

Furthermore, with scenes being played out all across the nation in places like Braddock Pennsylvania where cities are dying and jobs are flying away seem to be the bigger driving force for the new “we don’t want to pay for others, we need to invest at home” attitudes.

While Veterans Today believes that the U.S. should absolutely stand for liberty, freedom, and justice across the globe, it is tacitly more fundamental to our success that we invest at home first.

Instead of giving nationalists who live in lands far far away monies that we at home never get the benefits from, it’s far more sane and right to invest our monies on Main Street in places like Braddock PA and invest in our education, workers, industries, and infrastructure so that our future remains seeded for 21st century success.

The biggest obstacle to having the wishes of the American public respected and honored by the U.S. Congress who has been continually giving over $ 10 billion a year in cash and defense contracts to Tel-Aviv is getting them to get off the lobbyist payola shake down which will be easier said then done.  All this means that we may have to overthrow our own congress before we can extract the AIPAC lobby tumor from our system.

    I don’t have a problem with cutting the money to Israel as long as we also cut the money to Venezuela, Cuba, Saudi Arabia, Africa, China, Pakistan and all the other countries that have nothing good to say about America.

    • Hey ding-dong, we DO NOT give any money to Cuba, Venezuela or China! The money we give to Pakistan is designed to buy their government, not to benefit people. And it PALES in comparison to the billions we give to Israel!

  2. It is time the US cut the the funds away from Israel. The behavior of this country convinces me the only holocaust is the one they are carrying on against the Palestinians.

    We have unions fighting over the last dollars the bled out taxpayers have been able to provide and still the wars go on….we do not have a democracy. Our leaders do not represent our interests and they have long ago ceased representing our values. ENOUGH ALREADY.

    Stop enabling Israel to commit CRIMES.

    BOYCOTT THEM & SANCTION THEM.

Veterans Today Poll

For over 60 years, US Taxpayers have been funding Israel, Palestine and Middle East. Are you happy with return on investment or would you prefer those monies be invested at home instead?
