Dr. Pipes, you wrote: "It's hard to divine what benefit American taxpayers have received for the US$65 billion they have lavished on Egypt since 1948; but Egypt's absorbing Gaza might justify their continuing to shell out $1.8 billion a year."

I wonder what have we gotten from Egypt for paying this jizya, $65BN??? Egyptians are just anti-American now as they were before and we still continue to pay them. Looks to me this the biggest folly of our government. Just let them live on their own and may be they will change their tune. Even if they don't - who cares!!! Whether Egypt absorbs Gaza or not, we should stop paying this jizya. it has gone far too long.

I have to calculate how many hours a day I am working for Egypt!!!!
