U.S. aid to Israel?

Hi James;

It is also fair to say that the U.S. sends tons of $dollars to islamic countries as aid. But, when the chips were really down for Israel, and she saw nothing but disaster, the U.S. only intervened to stop Israel from completely taking over the mid-east, also oil interest for U.S.. Try to find a book store that can get you a copy of Howard M. Sachar, A HISTORY OF ISRAEL From the rise of Zionism to our time. That is the complete title of the book. It makes for slow reading, but is factual and will really set you on your heels as to the real friends of Israel. The bibliograpy at the end is a thick as a novel. I found it hard reading and had the resourses of the bibliography as an asset. Knowledge is power, and knowledge well used can be a tool to work for peace. Peace..
