The numbers in the US-Israel relationship

Israel has been a long time recipeint of US aid. Since the creation of Israel in 1948, the United States has provided roughly $90 billion. Of which, over $60 billion went to the military (IDF and Mossad).

The United States is known to provide aid for many foreign countries (From the span of 2000-2006):

Nigeria = $700 million
Chile = $17 million
Mexico = $533 million
Israel = $18,000,000,000!!! (Thats $18billion for those having trouble counting those zeros)
*Based on statistics from

That's a large sum of money, meaning that US taxpayers are all pitching in. Support for Israel has cost America dearly- well over than $10,000 per American!!!

That's right Israel drains taxpayers. Also, I am suprised you missed that Egypt gets the second largest aid from the U.S., which explains all the corruption of king Mubarak. Ok he's not king but a president for life, and presidency goes to his decendants after him.
