Finally, someone lists just a few of the things the US does for Israel and mentions that it might be appropriate for Israel to give something back.
Fortunately, Friedman is not only Jewish but has won 3 Pulitzer Prizes for his reporting from the Middle East which makes it a little difficult for the Israel Lobby to charge anti-Semitism.
I wish that someone would mention that we give billlions of dollars to Israel which gives free medical care to all citizens while the US does not have universal healthcare. In otherwords, US taxpayers without health care are sending their tax dollars to Israel which does have free health care.
So the poster I saw in the bakery for a fund raiser to raise money for a 41 year old carpenter who lost his job and health insurance who is a husband and father of 3 young boys cannot get treatment for his leukemia in the US, but an Israeli in the same situation would get treatment. So his tax dollars have been sent for the health care for Israelis that he cannot receive.
