WASHINGTON (JTA) -- The head of a pro-Israel lobby group testified on Capitol Hill about the importance of U.S. aid to Israel.
Howard Kohr, executive director of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, told the House Appropriations Foreign Operations subcommittee that "American assistance to Israel serves vital U.S. national security interests and advances critical U.S. foriegn policy goals."
(Yeah right, Only in "Bizarro Land" does giving hard earned American taxpayer dollars to Israel really help America. Tell that to AMERICANS who are loosing their homes and jobs! Actually it destroys America at home and Americas standing worldwide. Go beg elsewhere, you are ruining America with your control and support for a foreign country while expecting Americans to fund it with their money while you murder and commit genocide.)
He requested that Israel receive $2.775 billion in military aid in fiscal year 2010, as called for in the 2007 Memorandum of Understanding between the U.S. and Israel that allocates $30 billion in aid for the Jewish state over 10 years.
(America needs to close its wallet, America is in financial crisis and Israel wants 30 billion???? I say that money would be better spent helping the actual Americans who EARNED it, helping them keep their homes and stay afloat, or for job training. Rather than handing 30 BILLION over to a foreign country!!)
