  • How couldn't we?

    Of course we should support Israel. Not for a gain in military power, but because we can. They are people in need of assistance and we have the money to provide it. They may seem like a violent group to most, but this is only because they are in a time war. I'm sure they wouldnt feel the urge to help the US after we bombed japan. I truly believe that if we continue to support them, they will eventually progress to the point of having focuses outside the scope of war, such as education and science. Once their war is over, we will have found a powerful ally in the economic and technological progression of the USA. Yet only so long as we continue to support them.

  • On Biblical and Moral Grounds.

    Due to the constant fear Israelis live in because of their neighbors' hatred and endless bullying and unprovoked attacks and assaults, morally, we should not stand by and watch the slaughter. Biblically, there are blessings and wonderful promise for those who bless and pray for Israel; that's it for now.

  • Yes we should

    I personally do not agree with our aid to Israel, but the fact of the matter is we need them right now. They are our only allies in the Middle East that we can trust, it also helps when the United States can have another country agree with them 94% of the time on UN decisions. Israel has one of the most advanced military and spy networks the world has ever seen. They are a key member of our war on terrorism, and having them at this time is necessary.

  • Yes we need someone we can trust over there

    I know a lot of people have hated for Israel in their hearts but I don't understand it, I don't care about what they believe in as a religion because as an alley they are fair to us.

    We need to protect them and their interests or else we might see a total meltdown in the middle east without their leadership to steady things over there.

  • Israel needs our protection.

    The Arabs have always been anti-Israel and always will be. They will never respect the right of the Jewish state to exist where it does. This requires Israel to have powerful friends that can remind these neighboring states that the nation is not going anywhere, no matter how much anti-Semetic propaganda its enemies pump out on networks like Al Jazeera.

  • The Danger of Antisemitism

    We should continue to support Israel because the hatred for that country in their region is appalling. The leaders of the nations of Syria, Iran, and Jordan are all holocaust deniers, this is extremely dangerous in itself. Iran has threatened to "wipe Israel off the map". Israel has been attacked in four different wars by Arab nations. Their sovereignty should be upheld and respected, if they lose it they will suffer, and it will undermine the strength of the US and international forces.

  • We need Israel

    Our only ally in the Middle East needs us as much as we need them. Israel provide us with eyes and ears in the Middle East, as well as a standing Western nation in the chaotic Middle East. Israel is also better for the general global economy than any PLO or Middle Eastern country. Israel continues to economically flourish in a region surrounded by enemies, they are one of the most prosperous countries in the Middle East that doesn't rely on exporting a limited supply of oil to the world.

  • The US Should Always continue to help!

    While the issue of aid and troops is a large problem, the US have the power, the money and the will to help out the Middle East, it shouldn't matter if they're different but it should matter because we are one large nation that is willing to help many countries and other places to fend off the ISIS community, we are going to stand tall!

  • We Must Continue Support

    It is not a one-way relationship. Israel provides the US with vital intelligence and a platform for our Middle East security interests. The support the US has given Israel has boosted their economy in an otherwise resource-poor area of the Levant. In turn Israel has sought to develop a strong tech economy and academic standard centered on math and sciences; what have they given in turn are many inventions we use regularly such as the USB flashdrive, the first PC microprocessor and instant messaging software later adopted by AOL. Having spent time in both Israel proper and in the Palestinian territories I found Israeli society to very much reflect American values and even liberal tendencies. Israel has a strong pro-LBGT stance, gender quality, capitalism, and democracy. Remember, in this last election the right-winged Netanyahu almost lost to a coalition of leftist parties. Israel has conservatives and liberals just as the US. On the other hand, when engaging with Palestinians I found the predominant view to be critical and down-right hateful to the US. The Palestinians in the territories I met were strongly anti-gay, anti-capitalist and supported terrorism as a continual means of resistance. While one can understand the plight of the Palestinians, strategically supporting Israel who is a powerful ally in the national security realm and who has similar values to the US should remain our position toward them.

  • Israel is an illegal settlement

    Israel has no right to be there in the first place. They settled illegally, stole Palestinian lands, and continue to oppress Palestinians. Do people expect the Palestinians to just sit there and take it. Palestinians have to go through checkpoints. Palestinians have to walk on separate roads than the Israelis. Palestinian children are in jail for throwing rocks. Their only way to show their grief is to throw rocks at tanks and many of those children have been shot. Rock v Gun. Very fair. I think the major problem with the US is that it lacks empathy. How would an American feel if another country moves and decides to claim America as their own. Take American lands, and continue to treat them like lesser beings. It is immoral for the US to continue to support these acts and that is what they are doing when they fund them this enormous amount of money.

  • Israel shouldn't have ever been funded

    First of all let's start of with how it came to place, the Balfour Decrelation signed in 1917, which allowed Jews to essentially make Palestine their home, so treating Palestine like they do is wrong considering Israel shouldn't be their in the first place. Next we need to understand that by putting the Balfour Decrelation into place we were starting the moving and isolation of the Palestinians, now stuck in the Gaza Strip living in poverty. After this is the poor treatment of them, Israel funded by america has been the cause of many deaths. One of the main problems is that Israel is untouchable because of the World War Two persecution of Jews - no country will intervene. To help with my argument listen the song called "Long Live Palestine" by Lowkey. One of the saddest things is the fact that the media are only one way; remember this, Israel is a country with a powerful army, Palestine is a place that consists of homemade bombs and missiles. Funding them only adds to their disgusting treatment of Palestine.
    Israel has killed children and innocent people. Please bare in mind the people of Palestine.

  • Apartheid and hurting lots of Palestinians

    Their is a lot of apartheid in Israel. They want to make Palestinians look bad so that other countries should keep supporting them. Israel have been killing lots of innocent civilians including children. I heard on youtube that sometimes they would arrest people even if their isn't something bad going on. Even the Orthodox Jews are protesting against Israel. They also made a separation wall it is like an electric fence. Also Israeli settlers have been taking Palestinian civilians of their home and their was a book I read and a man lost his olive garden and could not make money because he lost it by the settlers they took it. They make people with different ethnic religion not able to live next to each other that is what the separation wall is about. They do many mock arrests when their is no threat going on. I read a book and it said that they would follow Palestinians wherever they go. Also Apartheid is the law in Israel so why should America be friends with or support it. The Israeli government does not want to live with Palestinians together and does not want to give Palestinians a lot of freedom and in Israel their education is three times more funded than in some Palestinian schools. When they are in a fight usually Palestinians would throw stones the government would send in tanks. Overall I think Israel is a bad country and is very bad to Palestinian civilians and the U.S should stop supporting them.

  • Because it makes us complicit

    While I realize we do benefit in many ways, tech, etc., we are also reaping much worse in disadvantages which we will continue to reap as long as we continue to support a country which is obviously committing multiple atrocities on a daily basis. Even before Israel declared statehood it's goal was to "conquer" all of Palestine for the Jews only. This is still the goal and everyone of us is complicit in this as we continue to support them.

  • Leave Them To Dust

    The Israeli's or the Jew's are never to be trusted. After WW ll we give them a country of there own and now we have been drafted in Wars because of them. We risk losing relations with Muslim countries for the Jew's to stab us in the back and think they would be better off without us. Ya they forget who gave them the land they call a country, and without us they will be brought to there knees by. They need to be taught a lesson and learn who holds the might and power in the world.

  • We are more in need

    The US has been dragged to wars and conflicts that has no or little benefits for the US from Israel, like the Iraqi war. Not only that but we are more in need of the money, with all those aids to Israel, an Israeli gets universal health care but an American doesn't. Israel also don't get enough of the land given to them and violates dozens of international laws in a year, no wonder terrorist groups like Hamas were created.

  • No support for Israel

    Root cause of all of America's international problems! They do not care for American ideals, just their own preservation! The creation of Israel was based on greed and elitist ideals of a deserved jewish state! They are bigots of the biggest kind! Very racist and are insular human beings as a result of their belief that they are 'the chosen ones'. They do not want peace with the rest of the middle east. They enjoy the support of America that affords them the ability to pusue their own interests! I do not support them in any realm!

  • US support for Israel is the root cause of Islamic terror

    The average Muslim today sees America as complicit in Israel's regime of colonialism and land theft, he sees America and Israel as attacking and usurping what he sees as Islamic land. ISIS and al Qaeda utilize this as a recruitment tool. This is why radical Islamic terror organizations never run out of recruits. Parting ways with Israel is a big step towards fixing the situation. Let Israel fight on its own, it's powerful enough.

  • US Support for Israel causes Islamic terror
