From Free Speech TV

Alice Walker in Gaza

Now, the following is what I believe to be true:

by Dee Newman

The Israeli government has been one of the top recipients of U.S. foreign aid since its inception. Though in the past a portion of the aid was dedicated to economic assistance, today it goes almost entirely to Israel’s military.

In August of 2007 the United States increased its military aid to Israel by over 25% and agreed to give Israel $30 billion in military aid over the next decade. One fifth of the United States’ entire foreign aid budget goes to Israel.

Personally, I am fed up with Israeli apologists declaring that anyone who questions the Israeli government's military actions to be anti-Semitic, asserting that the United States has no right to pressure or compel Israel to do anything.

If it were not for the United States and our tax dollars there would be no Israel. Every time the Israeli government commits a crime against humanity, we, the people of the United States of America, have blood on our hands. So, believe you me, I for one will not stop speaking out for peace and against the Israeli government’s illegal, cruel, inhumane, and brutal blockade of Gaza.
