Reader comment on item: Give Gaza to Egypt
in response to reader comment: Stop paying jizya to Egypt!!!

US$65 billion since 1948 to Egypt: that is a lot of cash. How much has Israel gotten since then? I guess more, but of course we are not america's enemies

But to be fair, this cash can not be termed Jizya, which is you pay when you live under muslim occupation.

True, Egyptians are still anti-American but not their government, which is all that matters really.
