Our best interests? With our country already hanging on a fiscal cliff, and our infrastructure (roads, bridges,etc.) in desperate need of repair, we are again sending billions and billions of dollars to Israel, the Palestinians, the Egyptions and Hamas to beg them to stop fighting. How pathetic is this?
This is just another band aid on a religious war that has been going on for hundreds of years between the Jews and the Arabs. I think Israel (probably accomplished mostly through their incredibly powerful Jewish congressional lobby) has saddled us poor taxpayers with some sort of a financial Holocaust.
I'm not anti-Semitic, just Pro-American and am sad to see this happen.
