    Posted: 25 April 2005 at 9:17am

By now many Americans are aware that Israel, with a population of only 5.8 million people, is the largest recipient of US foreign aid, and that Israel's aid plus US aid to Egypt's 65 million people for keeping the peace with Israel has, for many years, consumed more than half of the US bi-lateral foreign aid budget world-wide.

 

What few Americans understand however, is the steep price they pay in many other fields for the US-Israeli relationship, which in turn is a product of the influence of Israel's powerful US lobby (AIPAC) on American domestic politics and has nothing to do with US strategic interests, US national interests, or even with traditional American support for self-determination, human rights, and fair play overseas.

 

Besides its financial cost, unwavering US support for Israel, whether it's right or wrong, exacts a huge price in American prestige and credibility overseas. Further, Israel's powerful US lobby has been a major factor in delaying campaign finance reform, and also in the removal from American political life of some of our most distinguished public servants, members of Congress and even presidents.

 

Finally, the Israel-US relationship has cost a significant number of American lives. The incidents in which hundreds of US service personnel, diplomats, and civilians have been killed in the Middle East have been reported in the media. But the media seldom revisits these events, and scrupulously avoids analyzing why they occurred or compiling the cumulative toll of American deaths resulting from our Israel-centered Middle East policies.

 

Between 1949 and 1998, the US gave to Israel (officially reported – but in reality it’s several times more than reported) - every one of 5.8 million Israelis had received aid from the US government by October 31, 1997, cost American taxpayers $23,241 per Israeli. That's $116,205 for every Israeli family of five. (By: Richard Curtiss)

Simple! The US need Israel far more than the Israelis need their country. We all know that Herzel was in fact keen to establish Israel in South Africa. It was just Britain and the US who wanted and created it right in the heart of the Oil Lands.

Just think. What will happen when that part of the world runs out of oil? Or, when the US is no longer able to dish out that much (or any) cash at all?

Asalam Aalaikum,

It is true that US needs Isreal more than Isreal needs itself. Almost all the products that we see in the world were made by jews ,like pepsi and coca cola.
These two cold drinks are famous all over the world especially in muslim countries.

PEPSI is an abbreviation that means (Peny Earned for the Protection and Security of Isreal), We are not sure whether this is a correct understanding of this abbreviation or not but from this,we can clearly understand that each and every penny earned from the consumers of this drink around the world goes to Isreal.

Just imagine, more then millions of pepsi is sold around the world, and through their consumers, Isreal earns more than millions.

Recently according to the Newspaper,Isreal imports lot of kidneys and other body organs for the Isreali patients and it is involved in the smuggling of these organs.

As far as the establishment of Isreali state is concerned, Isreal is situated in the most appropriate region of the world because Middle East is the most richest region in terms of Oil, also Baithlehem is situated in Palestine which is the Holy place not only for muslims and Christians but also for Jews.

Regards,

who call themselves superior are actually inferior in the eyes of Allah.Those who call themselves slaves of Allah are superior not only in the eyes of Allah but also superior in the eyes of man.

strange..... this link down here selling old Pepsi bottles.says Pepsi was created in 1898. 50 years before Israel came into being.furthermore PepsiCo is a corporation with its own stock holders.who put their own money into this company.people who invest in companies do so to make money not so they can find a way to support Israel.PepsiCo has spread through out the world solely to make money for its stock holders.not to participate in some hair brained scheme to supply money to Israel.
