Don’t Second-Guess Israel, and Don’t Send Her Foreign Aid

-Ron Paul
Netanyahu warns President Obama [and his administration], “Don’t ever second guess me again.” He claims defending Israel is her business, not the U.S., and with this I agree.

I have always argued that the United States giving Israel everything it wants means its sovereignty is challenged. But where Netanyahu gets it wrong is that the American people and the American government thinks it should get something in return for the $100 billion of foreign aid that Israel has received over the years.

Even this week, the Congress sent another $225 million bonus to help Israel in its war against the Palestinians. The best thing for the U.S. and Israel is to never second-guess Israel and never send her, or any other country for that matter, U.S. dollars that have been taken from the poor people of this country.
