U.S. Aid to Israel Equals $4.9 Million a Day for 64 Years

Tuesday, April 10, 2012
No one can say the U.S. hasn’t been generous towards Israel since it was founded in 1948.
 
Over a period of 64 years (including the 2013 budget request), the U.S. has given Israel more than $115 billion in military and foreign aid, which averages out to about $4.9 million a day.
 
American and Israeli officials are currently negotiating a new aid deal that would provide more money for a new missile defense program, Iron Dome. Previous funding requests approved $205 million for the project, and Israel is trying to secure at least that much if not more for future years.
 
Although some Republicans have tried to portray President Barack Obama as soft on Israel, his budget for Fiscal Year 2013 includes $3.1 billion in military aid for Israel, the most in 13 years.

@ak the difference is that greece is part of the eu. is israel part of the us? the figures stated above are making me re-think that question. @kristina webb hmmm, where did i put my tinfoil hat..... seriously though, why would i believe a book written before the dark ages? i think you are over-analyzing one source and not looking around to find others to contrast and compare.

does anyone ever ask the question as to what the united states - actually the entire anglosphere (10 tribes of the north) - has at stake in that tiny region of the world? read jeremiah 1:15 to find the answer. the book of jeremiah mentions 27 times that there will come upon jerusalem and its surrounding cities a great evil from the north. these 10 'kings' will take jerusalem and make her their own (won/one) capitol city of their nwo (own spelled backwards) one world government.
