Letter to the editor,

Iran boasts that it has six armies surrounding Israel which it hopes will bring Israel to an end. While a few Arab countries have made peace with Israel, the others loathe the Jewish state. Add this to EU countries where government officials justify violence against Israel, and you have a serious security problem for Israel that it can only manage by maintaining a powerful and very expensive military. It maintains its military strength thanks to the U.S. that provides it loans and aid that Israel is obliged to use in the U.S. arms marketplace. Every dollar the U.S. provides Israel generates American jobs.

Those who question American aid to Israel are not concerned with the cost or Israel’s economic strength, but because they would like to see a weaker more vulnerable Israel.
