This raises a good question that I cannot find a perfect answer for.
Why is Israel so important to the U.S.? Why do we get so involved over there when it is a financial burden on us and to be honest we send aid there when we have people here who are homeless or starving to death. Look up Project Appalacica (sp) and see how we fail our own and yet we fund over there.
Not saying we should let them drown and get taken over but just maybe we should cut back, take care of our own and build better relationships abroad with everyone and not suffer because of a piece of land the size of my couch in the Middle East.
