“Have you noticed that the Republicans and Democrats can't agree on anything, except when it comes to Israel? ..Is that a strange picture that you can't agree on the welfare of the American people but you can agree on the best interests of the people of Israel?”
—The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
(FinalCall.com) - While members of the Republican-led Congress and the Obama administration wrangle over severe budget cuts, one area of the federal budget that does not appear to be in jeopardy is the money going to the state of Israel.
According to the Institute for Middle East Understanding, U.S. military aid to Israel will reach $30 billion between fiscal years 2009-2018, an annual average increase of 25 percent over previous levels.
