Stop sending Israel tax dollars every day

OlympiaMarch 28, 2013 

As tax day draws near, ask yourself if you want to keep paying taxes to Israel. What, you say? Each year the U.S. gives Israeli citizens money by sending about five billion USA taxpayer dollars to Israel. Can we really afford to send Israel eight million tax dollars every day of the year, year after year?

Last year, and this year, we are giving Israel an additional $200 million for the Iron Dome defense program. Are Israel and its supporters so poor that they can’t afford their own security? Next time you hear that we can’t afford more teachers, medical care, or transportation support, think of the $8 million a day in taxes we give away to just this one privileged nation.
