Reader comment on item: End U.S. Aid to Israel

Submitted by Laurie Kurs (United States), Jul 26, 2016 at 16:59

Perhaps on a very significant level your proposal is accurate. But, I am confident to question the long term outcome of such an idea.
Yes, even as a parent must let an adult child fend for themselves.....the reality is, and it plays out all the time...often even an adult child might require additional assistance.

While America is NOT the parent... America does have a vested interest in Israel - in Israel reining safe and of Israel fending off ISIS.

I believe the knowledge in the M.E - by ISRAEL'S ENEMIES - that AMERICA stands behind Israel is a great deterrent.

I was a slight little girl...but i had a very large older brother...I felt safe and NO ONE bothered me!!
