It's all relative. Sometimes you have to look under the rock to find the truth. According to you link, Palestine didn't get any aid at all before 1993.
From 1948 through 1985, the United States provided Israel with US$10 billion in economic assistance and US$21 billion in military assistance, 60 percent of which was in the form of grants. From 1986 through 1988, total United States economic and military assistance to Israel averaged more than US$3 billion a year, making Israel the largest recipient of United States aid. Of the annual total, about US$1.8 billion was in Foreign Military Sales credits, and about US$1.2 billion was in economic assistance."
In addition to the billions we have given israel in foreign assistance, "the United States has provided Israel with $625 million to develop and deploy the Arrow antimissile missile (an ongoing project),$1.3 billion to develop the Lavi aircraft (cancelled),$200 million to develop the Merkava tank (operative),$130 million to develop the high energy laser anti-missile system (ongoing), and other military projects. In FY2000 the United States provided Israel an additional $1.2 billion to fund the Wye agreement, and in FY2002 the United States provided an additional $200 million in anti-terror assistance. For FY2003, the Administration requested $600 million in economic,$2.1 billion in military, and $60 million in migration resettlement assistance. For FY2004, the Administration requested $480 million in economic,$2.16 billion in military, and $50 million in migration resettlement assistance."

Money well spent. I doubt if a Palestinian would develop anything.

Impeach Obama & repeal Obamacare:
"The Obama administration is coming under fire for once again making a unilateral change to ObamaCare -- this time, quietly exempting the five U.S. territories and their more than 4 million residents from virtually all major provisions of the health care law.
The decision was made a week ago, and was a long time coming. For months, the territories have been complaining that the law was implemented so poorly in their regions that it destabilized their insurance markets. "
The President does not have the authority to exempt anyone from any law. Any exemption is written into the law when it passed. If it isn't written into the law, it cannot exist. Only in some medieval feifdom can the king select who has to obey the law and who doesn't have to obey the law... and villages in the middle of the jungles of Africa.
I'll say it again. Since Obama was named President, this government is being run like some village in the middle of the jungles of Africa.

Only a socialist would try to blame a bunch of 60 to 80 year olds for the division in this country. One man is responsible and he is a half-breed socialist Muslim who just happens to be a pathological liar and who is mad at whites because they told him it wasn't normal for a 19-year old to hump his mama. You get one guess bozo.
So, you believe the Tea Party movement is made up of nothing but a bunch of out of touch alzheimer's patients? I agree.

Yes, and go look up how he handled the Moslem Brotherhood; he massacred them, 1982 Hama:
The Syrian city of Hama was the scene of a massacre in 1982 when President Hafez al-Assad, father of the current president Bashar al-Assad, razed the city to crush a Sunni rebellion, slaughtering an estimated 20,000 of his own people.
Assad's troops pounded Hama with artillery fire for several days and, with the city in ruins, his bulldozers moved in and flattened neighbourhoods.
The 1982 massacre is regarded as the single bloodiest assault by an Arab ruler against his own people in modern times and remains a pivotal event in Syrian history.

Muslims Savages : Family Considers Killing 10-Year-Old Daughter After Mullah Rapes Her In Afghanistan Mosque


AFGHANISTAN-ELECTION

It was bad enough that the alleged rape took place in the sanctity of a mosque and that the accused man was a mullah who invoked the familiar defence that it had been consensual sex.

But the victim was only 10 years old. And there was more: The authorities said her family members openly planned to carry out an honour killing in the case – against the young girl. The mullah offered to marry his victim instead.

This past week, the awful matter became even worse. On Tuesday, local policemen removed the girl from the shelter that had given her refuge and returned her to her family, despite complaints from women’s activists that she was likely to be killed.

The case has broader repercussions. The head of the Women for Afghan Women shelter here where the girl took refuge, Dr. Hassina Sarwari, was at one point driven into hiding by death threats from the girl’s family and other mullahs, who sought to play down the crime by arguing the girl was much older than 10. One militia commander sent Sarwari threatening texts and an ultimatum to return the girl to her family. The doctor said she now wanted to flee Afghanistan.

The head of the women’s affairs office in Kunduz, Nederah Geyah, who actively campaigned to have the young girl protected from her family and the mullah prosecuted, resigned May 21 and moved to another part of the country.

The case itself would just be an aberrant atrocity, except that the resulting support for the mullah, and for the girl’s family and its honour killing plans, have become emblematic of a broader failure to help Afghan women who have been victims of violence.

The national debt..... 18 Trillion you ignorant .... Tick-Tock

The failed obamacare TAX ...... Tick-Tock

Failed foreign policy that will lead to a war because idiots like you voted for a man who said that he would lead from behind .... Tick-Tock

There is not enough time in a week to go over all of Obama's failed promises!!! Let's take a deeper look on how bad democrats are.... Look at the states that are democrat and you'll see the following...

1) have the most strict gun laws, yet has the worst crime.

2) makes all these environmental regulations and laws yet they are environmental catastrophes...

3) have the highest taxes, yet they are all broke. No money in the account. Have deficits beyond imagination, but spend like everything is fine!!!

4) have the worst roads.

5) have the highest unemployment rates.

6) have the worst schools.

7) have no manufacturing or industrial capabilities. They lost it along time ago.

I could go on and on and on. So it is obvious that the democratic states have lots of problems but the mindless useful idiots still voted for a Democratic president. Now go figure around the rest on your own. Use your heads for once in your life... Oh and by the way I'm not saying that Republicans have all the answers but I am saying that the Democrats sure as hell don't.

An SA Q&A with scientist David Spergel discussing the present controversy on the claimed discovery of Gravity Waves. He's found serious flaws in the so-called discovery.

Here's one interesting segment:

Q: How do you think this controversy will affect the public’s perception of how science works?

A: The optimistic scenario is that the public will say, hey, this is great, it helps science when people check each other’s data. If the sausage is cleanly made, a good restaurant will not mind having a window into the kitchen. The negative side is, as one of my right-wing Facebook friends remarked: If the scientists get gravity waves wrong, why should we believe them on global warming?

“My message to Israelis and Palestinians is the same: Stop fighting. Start talking. And take on the root causes of the conflict, so we are not back to the same situation in another six months or a year,” Mr. Ban said in remarks to the press with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Tel Aviv.
“WE MUST ADDRESS THESE UNDERLYING ISSUES - INCLUDING MUTUAL RECOGNITION, OCCUPATION, DESPAIR AND THE DENIAL OF DIGNITY - SO PEOPLE DO NOT FEEL THEY HAVE TO RESORT TO VIOLENCE AS A MEANS OF EXPRESSING THEIR GRIEVANCES."
