  • 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.

  • Yes we should

    If we do support Israel, they can help us as well. Nor only do we need financial and economical support, but they do as well. If we work together we can get good to come out of it. This is why i think we should continue our relationship with Israel.

  • We need to

    Palestine decided to try to be tough and shook the cage the big dog. Then they played the victim when the big dog bared its teeth in response. Hamas is a terrorist group that will only stop when Isreal has fallen or they are stopped. Isreal is our ally and we need to help them

  • Makes Political sense

    Let's pretend, for a moment, that Israel is completely and totally in the wrong in their attacks on Palestine. Then we should support them anyway.

    Israel is an incredibly valuable ally for the US. They're one of the primary military forces in the Middle-East (thanks to us). And the only one we can assume will still stay on our side six months after any sort of conflict. That's partly because Israel is incredibly stable, more so than most other countries in the ME.

    An alliance with Israel means a reliable ally in one of the most volatile regions in the world, and it allows us to share not only in military power, but in intelligence regarding many of the US's enemies in the surrounding area.

    Not to mention, the US has one HUGE cultural tie with Israel. Israel is the only westernized, minimally corrupt democracy in the ME. If nothing else, the US should be supporting them for that reason.

    Not to mention that, if the US didn't support Israel, it would be wiped off the map. Pretty much every neighbor of Israel wants it dead. That's why Israel has taken over Palestine in the first place. Palestine teamed up with Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and a bunch of other counties to try to destroy Israel in the 6-Day War. The only reason Israel won is because of US support.


    But why is it important for Israel to be around? Because Israel provides a safe haven for the Jewish people, the most persecuted, killed, and discriminated minority in history. Almost every major civilization has gone after the Jews in some way. If we take history as a clue, it will happen again. And when it does, the Jewish people need somewhere to go and something to speak for them.

    Finally, US support is the only thing preventing equivalent numbers of Israeli civilian deaths as Palestinian deaths. The US-provided iron dome system shoots down the rockets that are shot at civilians every day by Hamas. To cease support is to voluntarily let innocents die.

    The US should instead use its diplomatic ties with Israel to help them stop their conflict. But they shouldn't do it through an absolute cessation of support.

  • The Facts Show

    It has a free press, religious freedom is fully respected, women have equal rights, and Israel's government is vibrantly democratic. Racism towards Arabs, despite what politicians say, is nonexistent. Since Israel's founding, Arabs have had a right to vote, and their have always been Arab representatives in Israel's parliament. One of the Supreme Court judges is an Arab, Salim Joubran. Heck, polls consistently show that Arabs in Israel wouldn't even want to move to the West Bank or Gaza if a Palestinian state was created there.

    Israel, put simply, is one of the freest countries in the world. What more do you want?

  • The US should stop all foreign aid to Israel and refuse to support them in the UN when their objectives are not aligned with ours.

    The US has different objectives than Israel and which Israel refuses to support. Our continued support of Israel's Illegal settlements, mistreatment of Palestine, and international terrorism (kidnapping, and assassinations) damage the US international relations with countries more important to our strategic objectives. Therefore we should "cut loose" Israel and wish them well.

  • USS Liberty, Lavon Affair, Rachel Corrie, etc.

    Israel is not our ally, nor are they our friend. They have directly and indirectly attacked American and British interests in the region on multiple occasions and tried to frame Arabs for their actions.

    In the USS Liberty situation, the Israeli air force shot up a U.S. Navy ship despite knowledge of what it was. Then they shot up the life boats to prevent survivors. All of these murderous actions were meant to be blamed on Egypt in order to pull the U.S. to Israel's side. Please research the USS Liberty.

    In the Lavon affair, Israel attempted to bomb sites in Egypt frequented by Americans and British in order to blame it on Egypt for the purpose of turning the US and British against Egypt. The perpitrators were caught and informed on Israel's involvement in the plan. Israel even booted their defense minister due to the plan's failure. Please research the Lavon Affair.

    What is even more outrageous, is the Rachel Corrie story. This was a college student attempting to establish a sister city with Rafah. While peacefully protesting the collective punishment practiced by Israel through demolishing homes, Ms. Corrie was intentionally ran over by an Israeli Defense Forces bulldozer. No punishment was meated out, and all culpability was denied. Please research Rachel Corrie.

    These are three of the biggest reasons I can come up with off the top of my head why Israel needs to be cut off. Notice that I didn't even address what they've been doing to the Palestinians and other Arab nations, which would require a book to describe. PLEASE RESEARCH ISRAELI CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY.

  • Yes we should

    If we do support Israel, they can help us as well. Nor only do we need financial and economical support, but they do as well. If we work together we can get good to come out of it. This is why i think we should continue our relationship with Israel.

  • It violates separation of church and state.

    Judaism is a religion based on ethnicity that started out in palestine. 80 % of jews today are of european descent. Most of the real jews converted to christianity and later on islam. Sending 4-7 billion dollars every year also violates our separation between church (religion) and state the same way sending 4-7 billion dollars every year to the vatican or the Islamic State is against our principles found in the constitution. Israel is even our best ally. Israel has killed more americans than Iran ever has.

  • No, absolutely no.

    Israel's present leaders are violent and dangerous to neighboring countries and to the U.S. They are also dishonest and racist. They have committed crimes against humanity. They openly interfere in U.S. domestic policies and politics. Supporting Israel has damaged U.S. reputation and influence in the world. They are secretive and manipulative.

  • No absolutely no

    Absolutely no because Israel's actions are against human's rights. Israel's government killed 3000 unarmed people because of 4 Israel's citizens. They supported rebellions in Syria (includes ISIS), and now they talk about ISIS danger. Israel causes most of the problems in the middle east. Israel supports terrorism in the world. They even do not care about American people because they pushed American government several times to fight against Iran without considering war disadvantages for American people.

  • No more aid

    US aid to Israel supports human rights abuses and an apartheid system that rivals South Africa at its worst. The VERY VAST majority of Palestinians DO NOT call for the destruction of Israel. They only ask for basic human rights. I lived and worked there last year and eye witnessed this.

  • Money Better Spent

    The aid given by US to Israel could be better spent. One third of US's foreign aid money goes to Israel. That is seven times more than sub-Saharan Africa. Dozens of poor countries could use this money better than Israel, which doesn't need this support: the country has more nuclear weapons than China or France, and the Israeli economy is booming thanks its high tech industry.

  • Spend money here!

    Why are we spending $3 billion a year on Israel?? Spend a fraction of that on American schools, securing our borders, immigration reform, healthcare (yes, healthcare! We can pay for it if we stop giving away our tax money to foreigners). We are only making more enemies by supporting Israel.
