Default Re: Rockets land in field outside Jerusalem as war looms over Gaza

Unless I'm very much mistaken, this aid package is annual, and predates Obama's tenure. It has been frozen, however, by Congress for years with the hostilities as an excuse. Even so, let's review:

Palestine: $147,000,000
Israel: $3,000,000,000 (not counting about $2,000,000,000 in loan guarantees).



By the way, $1.2B of that is classified as "economic aid". Why are we giving economic aid (especially that much) to one of the wealthier countries on the planet?
