Reader comment on item: What Riyadh Buys [in Washington]

Submitted by David Cohen (United States), Dec 11, 2002 at 12:49

Hey Alan,

The amount of U.S. aid to Israel each year is $2 Billion(not $10 Billion); with
the condition that most of it be spent here in the U.S.A.

Where do you get your information from - Harry Belafonte or Susan Sarandon?

But more importantly, the U.S. gets "firebase Israel" - a strong, dependable
and democratic ally in a tumultuous/chaotic region. Think about it ...
