Passionate attachment to Israel is about to bankrupt this nation

General (Ret) James David (who is mentioned on the cover of the third edition of former Republican Congressman Paul Findley’s ‘They Dare to Speak Out’ book about the power/influence of the pro-Israel lobby on the US political system and media) sent through the following as well:

The United States gives Israel more than $30 billion  Israel to Get $30 Billion in Military Aid From U.S. – New York Times , with additional payments nearly every week when Jewish members of Congress put it to a vote, Obama approves $70 million in extra military aid to Israel | The Times of Israel , knowing that only a handful of members of Congress would refuse to vote for it.  Israel to ask U.S. for $20billion extra in military aid because of Middle East turmoil | Mail Online .  
The American economy is near an all time low while the country has the largest debt ever.  And just today we learn that our our postal system is about to default on $5 billion payment.  This passionate attachment to Israel is about to destroy our nation.  George Washington said it best when he stated that “passionate attachment to another nation produces a variety of evils…the illusion of common interests where no real common interests exist; adopting the enmities of the other; and participation in the quarrels and wars of the other without any justification. Still another evil is that such a passionate attachment gives to ambitious, corrupted or deluded citizens the facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country.” (scroll to link at bottom of http://astandforjustice.org)

Postal officials said they also are studying whether they may need to delay other obligations. In the coming months, a $1.5 billion payment is due to the Labor Department for workers compensation, which for now it expects to make, as well as millions in interest payments to the Treasury.
