<quoted text>
Given that U.S. military aid to Israel was $2.775 billion in 2010,$3 billion in 2011,$3.07 billion in 2012 (and $3.15 billion per year from 2013-2018) while Israel's defense budget is around $15 billion, it made us wonder how much Israeli taxpayers contribute and where the other $12 billion non-U.S. aid comes from.

We emailed Shmuel Even, an expert of Israel's defense at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv, who told us that Israel's up-to-date defense budget for 2012 is $15 billion, with 70 percent contributed by Israeli taxpayers, 21 percent coming from U.S. aid and 9 percent coming from Defense Ministry income.

That would put the Israeli taxpayer contribution at $10.5 billion, compared to $3.15 billion from the U.S.(Even added that the U.S. aid in 2011 was $3.1 billion and that most of the aid comes in weapons as opposed to cash.) http://www.businessinsider.com/heres-how-much... "A summary of pro-Israel campaign donations for the period of 1990–2008 collected by Center for Responsive Politics indicates current totals and a general increase in proportional donations to the US Republican party since 1996.[45] The Center for Responsive Politics' 1990–2006 data shows that "pro-Israel interests have contributed $56.8 million in individual, group and soft money donations to federal candidates and party committees since 1990."[46] In contrast, Arab-Americans and Muslim PACs contributed slightly less than $800,000 during the same (1990–2006) period.[47] In 2006, 60% of the Democratic Party’s fundraising and 25% of that for the Republican Party's fundraising came from Jewish-funded Political Action Committees. Democratic presidential candidates depend on Jewish sources for 60% of money from private sources" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel_lobby_in_... (DEMOS DEPEND ON 60%, that's why)

Itsawitch, you aren't messing with me, you're actually a great source of entertainment since Two Broke Girls is a rerun. As a matter of fact, you're trying so hard to be all that and a bag of potato chips, I find it funny. It was so easy to walk you in to that one that I don't need a cookie, I need a medal. Now you're just becoming boring..........bu bye :)
One of us is taking both of us seriously while the other is taking neither of us seriously. Stop feeding me straight lines and you won't end up stammering out insults and looking more the fool for it too.

Buh-bye to you too! Don't feel bad. You are hardly the first one not able to hang in there!:)

My suggestion exactly 3 pages ago. You must have some original ideas of your own, don't you?

I'm sorry you're taking this seriously.:( I see it bothers you because you keep reiterating the fact. You keep trying, you'll get the "hang" of it. You're not the first one that's had to figure it out. Bu bye....:)

I'm sorry. Your message was not received by the recipient intended. Connection to recipient was discontinued upon submission of the senders first 'buh-bye' application. Submission was automatically accepted and subsequent shut down of light operation and evacuation of premises proceeded.

Should you wish to resume service? You must first submit a request for a 'reverse 1st buh-bye' application . Second Buh-bye requests are not accepted at this time.

Thank you for contacting MindF*** Parties where our customers needs are our greatest concern. We are sorry we could not process your request at this time. Good-bye.

For the same reasons they keep borrowing money to give to other countries like Egypt.

Now Bacon, why do you post such ridiculous claims with false proof? We both know that the Republicans are the only ones that lie, the Commucrat's "words" are just simply taken out of context.

Pro, there are never current stats but I found this article:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-13939...

Didn't find Israel on the top 10 2 years ago. I thinks it's odd the U.S. gives China the most in foreign and we still borrow money from them. Are we borrowing our own money since we owe China everything but the kitchen sink?

Morning Lu. I thought I was the only one that thought that was funny. Since the jury's still out, I thought "manscape" might have been appropriate. Kind of difficult to figure those that are and those that want to be.
