I've posted this on the message boards. Here's a repeat with photo:

Watch this film, please.

Yes, your tax dollars - millions, billions to Israel in financial and military aid. For what? So that Israel can kill with impunity. And we’re worried about our health care. What about these people that you and I, through our government, kill and maim? What health care can these unfortunate people expect?

Please, have the guts to view this film through to the end. And as you watch remember that this is just one city, multiply this 10, 20 or more times. Try to put yourself in the shoes of these people – sons, daughters, wives, husbands, parents dead or dying, blown apart, the survivors with no home left, no food, no water, no anything. Where are they going? Where’s safety? Walking, walking to yet another deadly encounter with Israel’s U.S. financed murderers.

Thanks to Aljazeera’s brave filmmakers. But their time may be limited - Israel has vowed to shut them down.

Amid a renewed cycle of escalating tensions and violence, Israel launched a military offensive on the Gaza Strip on July 8, 2014.

On the 13th day of the assault on Gaza, Israel intensified its campaign with a ground offensive. The densely populated district of Shujayea in Gaza City came under intense bombardment.

This short essay puts the figure of U.S. tax dollars shoveled out to Israel at 81.3 billion dollars in 50 years. It is well worth your time to read the entire article:

The Days of the Blockade are Numbered

Israel Has Lost

by SUNERA THOBANI

Israel may yet win its current battle in Gaza, but only by killing even more of the Palestinians it holds captive there with no means of escape. Israel is, of course, a major military power; indeed it is the most militarized nation in the world.i But this is the result of the support it enjoys from the most powerful military and propaganda machine human beings have ever produced, the US.ii Israel has been the biggest recipient of US foreign assistance every year since 1967 – over $81.3 billion dollars in 50 years – and is the largest importer of US arms.iii An Israeli victory in this battle, as in the past, would thus say rather more about the extent of its support from its international backers (including also Canada and the UK) than about Israeli political, military or even moral acumen.

Part 1 - Is Economic Disaster About to Hit & Are You Prepared?

Thom plus logo Right now the United States and the world are facing four massive trends that, in combination, we haven't faced since the 1920s. We are seeing the rise of a new and brutal form of governance with extraordinary industrial capacity and power in China, much as Nazi Germany rose in Europe.
