Complicity or Hypocrisy? Take your pick.
Currently the US $ is likened to monopoly money, i.e. printed paper. American homelessness is still rising, American homes are still being repossessed, American school budgets are still cut and cut some more…, the American welfare system was always sad and becoming sadder yet, American public medical care has always been atrocious, American unemployment is still too high, but US taxpayers are still funding Israel’s existence, not to mention picking up the tab for “Israel’s right to defend itself”.
Let’s face it! America, the ‘land of golden opportunity’, is about six-feet under…
According to End The Occupation, US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, since 1976 Israel has been “the highest recipient of U.S. foreign aid in the world. The congressional aid comes to about $1.8 billion a year in military aid and $1.2 billion in economic aid, plus another $1 billion or so in miscellaneous grants, mostly in military supplies, from various U.S. agencies. Tax-exempt contributions destined to Israel bring up the total to over $5 billion annually.”
“Israel (wealthier than a number of European Union member countries) receives 25 percent of the entire U.S. foreign aid budget.”
“Israel is the only country allowed to spend part of its military aid funds (25 percent) on its own domestic arms industry; all other recipients of U.S. military aid are required to use it to purchase U.S.-manufactured weapons.” – See more at: http://www.endtheoccupation.org/article.php?id=173#sthash.6aRB3NLj.dpuf

You, the American taxpayers, have no excuse to stay uninformed when activists across the globe have been rising up to stand in solidarity with Palestinians for decades. Yes, we all know the American media is censored, bought and paid for, but listen to this voice of experience…you cannot excuse ignorance by remaining uninformed!
There are countless global blogs and websites accessible through the internet, plus Facebook groups, twitter groups, and other numerous social media and activist sites.The list is endless to learn about the true state of ancient and current affairs concerning you and your country’s foreign affairs involvements. (Aside the website named above, another exceptionally informative website of shocking truths tailored most especially to the US citizen is
You, living in the US, are permitting your government to treat you like sheeple. You’re allowing your government to trample on your Constitution and ignore your constitutional rights! You empower the US government to effectively sign blank checks over to Israel on a daily basis, misusing your heard-earned cash! You should be outraged!
There’s absolutely no justification for you to keep turning a blind eye and burying your head in the sand against the stark, ugly truth of the American/Israeli collaboration against Palestine and the Middle East!
Following is another group of American citizens, alongside Native Americans, that has suffered immeasurably at the hands of the US government since its founding, Black-Palestinian Solidarity:
