Actually it is Afghanistan

and you need to differentiate between military aid and economic aid

and in the case of Israel, a portion of the military aid is actually obligated by the Camp David Accords as a condition to the transfer of the Sinai from Israel to Egypt. So its not really even "aid" (i.e. its not free).

and in the US, although one can debate the social ethics of military aid, military is aid is actually equivalent to domestic aid, because by law, a large proportion of that foreign aid has to be spent purchasing American hardware.

so basically your insinuation is FOS, just like your new moniker

Why're you so defensive about Israel?

Is there anything "sacred" or "special" about this nation?

You call yourself a non-fanatic, yet your views are so tribalist, narrow and sectarian.

INVENTOR CHIP

An Indian American, Vinod Dham, was the inventor of the 5th gen Pentium chip. The Pentium chip, though, is just an advancement on the original computer chip invented by Jack Kilby of Texas Instruments. Kilby was awarded the Nobel Prize for his invention in 2000. Jack St. Clair Kilby (November 8, 1923 – June 20, 2005) was an American electrical engineer who took part (along with Robert Noyce) in the realization of the first integrated circuit while working at Texas Instruments (TI) in 1958. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics on December 10, 2000.

INVENTOR OF CELL PHONE:

Martin "Marty" Cooper (born December 26, 1928 in Chicago, Illinois, United States) is an American pioneer and visionary in the wireless communications industry. With eleven patents in the field, he is recognized as an innovator in radio spectrum management. While at Motorola in the 1970s, Cooper conceived the first handheld mobile phone (distinct from the car phone) and led the team that developed it and brought it to market in 1983. He is considered the "father of the cell phone" and is also cited as the first person in history to make a handheld cellular phone call in public.

ISRAEL - TOP SPY OF US HI TECH

Israel spies on U.S. more than any other ally

Philip Weiss on May 6, 2014

Excerpts -

Ah the unending gifts of the special relationship! Jeff Stein reports at Newsweek that Israel spies on the U.S. more than any other ally.“Alarming” and “terrifying” are the words used by a congressional aide who has seen the evidence of Israeli theft of US secrets.“

Israel’s espionage activities in America are unrivaled and unseemly, counterspies have told members of the House Judiciary and Foreign Affairs committees, going far beyond activities by other close allies, such as Germany, France, the U.K. and Japan. A congressional staffer familiar with a briefing last January called the testimony “very sobering…alarming…even terrifying.” Another staffer called it “damaging.”

The Jewish state’s primary target: America’s industrial and technical secrets.

“No other country close to the United States continues to cross the line on espionage like the Israelis do,” said a former congressional staffer who attended another classified briefing in late 2013, one of several in recent months given by officials from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the State Department, the FBI and the National Counterintelligence Directorate…

MORE ON ISRAEL - THE WORLD'S NUMBER 1 HI TECH THIEF

As Paul Pillar, the CIA’s former national intelligence officer for the Near East and South Asia, recently told Newsweek: old habits are hard to break: Zionists were dispatching spies to America before there even was an Israel, to gather money and materials for the cause and later the fledgling state. Key components for Israel’s nuclear bombs were clandestinely obtained here.“They’ve found creative and inventive ways,” Pillar said, to get what they want.
