Transcript of United States' Monetary Support of the Israeli Millitary

History and Fact Check
The United States government currently gives the Israeli military
8.5 million

dollars a day out of tax payer money. This is accredited to the 10-year Military Aid Agreement signed between Israel and America in 2007. In this agreement, President Bush decides to give the Israeli military a sum of $30 billion dollars over a time span of 10 years. So, originally, the amount sent daily would be 8.2 million dollars, however, in the proposal it allows for funds to be "subject to appropriation", America can now give the Israeli military $8.5 million (Sharp). For the remaining 3 years left of this agreement, America will give approximately 9 billion dollars to the Israeli military.
Some people believe that by monetarily supporting the Israeli military that it will promote peace in the Middle East and also strengthen our alliance with Israel. Israel is one of our only allies in the Middle East, so it is important to remain close with them.
Some argue that it is hard to "promote peace" while funding a military. Especially one that has such high human right crimes. Also, our money could be better spent so that it helps aid America's people more directly.

United States' Monetary Support of the Israeli Military
How much is 8.5 million?
The average American public college tuition for one full year of education is $8,893. Every day, almost 1,000 college students could get their education for a full year paid for.
The average American family of 4 spends $200 a week on food. Every day, 42,500 families could get fed for a week with these funds.
As a Palestinian American, I'm sure you could guess which side I stand on. It is not right that we are giving the Israeli military 8.5 million dollars a day on the grounds of promoting peace. The Israeli military has committed 76 more war crimes in the eyes of the UN than Palestine, yet America still decides that funding the Israeli military is the one to defend in order to promote peace. Let's take a closer look at what the Israeli military does with out funds.
