The monies to Egypt are a bribe to assure that Egypt plays nicely with Israel - and, of course, to keep a compliant tyranny in place in Egypt. The same prevails in Central America, South America, Saudi Arabia, the Emirates, the NATO clients, etc. That is the crushing burden of Empire, while we degenerate at home. When the US Empire collapses, Israel will find another host and likely assist in our overthrow to curry favor with the Victor, perhaps to learn Mandarin as a second language.

@Heather Deitchman one step at a time. The money paid to Egypt is for the benefit of Israel mostly anyway. The people of Egypt don't benefit by the money; it all goes to the corrupt government, where as Israeli people do benefit by the money sent to Israel.

Someone here said that the money that goes to Israel benefit the Israeli people. Not true. Most of the money is used to buy weapons that are used to oppress the Palestinian people and make Israel a savage state that kill Palestinian children. occupy and confiscate Palestinian land, build new settlement that are counter to International law and to what the US says about settlements. Israel is an oil producing country. So, why the US is obliged to subsidize a tyranny state that oppresses other people??? Money that goes to Israel as well as to Egypt should be spent for the interest of US people. Or this money can be spent to help poor countries in Africa. Israel is not in need. Israelis live higher standard than they can afford because of US subsidy. It happens only because of Israeli-occupied congress that allows money to go to Israel-the outlaw state.

I hope that everyone who is sympathetic to Palestinian justice is supporting Jill Stein for president. Hillary was actually MORE vicious than Trump when they spoke at the AIPAC convention. Hillary would make BDS illegal if she could. Imagine Jill Stein in the presidential debate talking about Palestine, Israel, Egypt. Most Americans don't have a clue about those areas because of the corrupt media. Even if you eventually vote for someone else, it's extremely important to get Jill into the debates and that won't happen unless 15% of the people in polls say that they are voting for her.

@Heather and if their intention was to point out that we give out millions of dollars to a place like Israel that commits war crimes and refuses basic human rights to a certain people while we have our own suffering a horrible water crisis...then yes It would still be true and not a bad intention at all.

Are you planning on putting up a billboard that says, "$4.1 million dollars a day to Egypt" also? If you are not, I have serious concerns about your intentions.

First of all, kudos for getting the numbers right. $10,000,000 a day is pretty close to the actual amount. In Sept 2016 the U.S. agreed to provide Israel $38 billion in military assistance over 10 years. That averages out to a little over $10,000,000 a day. I appreciate when to numbers are accurate. Why do we provide them so much? Are we as s country so altruistic? Not really. "America First" is exactly why we support Israel militarily. You see $38 Billion over 10 years sounds like a lot of money until we put it in perspective. Having Israel as our military ally more or less gives the U.S. one of the world's most capable armies and a nuclear deterant right in the middle of one of the most unstable and vital parts of the world. Believe it or not, $3.8 billion a year is a bargain for a proxy army in the Middle East. Also, it may be politically incorrect to say, but most Arab countries don't share much in common beyond their hatred of Israel. Israel actually helps unify the Arab world, and keeps them from fighting amongst themselves. This is a good thing!! Consider that the cost of the Iraq war. It is estimated that the direct cost of that war was over $5 trillion, and the cost of caring for our Iraq war veterans is estimated will cost the U.S. between $9 and $18 trillion. I definitely think Israel's military and nuclear presence in the Middle East has helped the U.S. avoid at least one war over this 70 year existence. Given the demonstrated costs of war, I believe that supporting Israel with $3.8 Million in military assistance is definitely in our national interest. Also, when the U.S. Government gives Israel military assistance, often it is in the form of American made military hardware. This creates business for U.S. Manufacturers. There are many other benefits as well. Stop thinking we support Israel because we are so altruistic. We support Israel for many reasons. One is because it would be much more expensive for us not to. In the end, everything we do weighs much more on the side of our national best interest than altruism.

Maybe we can get Colin Kaepernick to take on this cause too. He's certainly getting a lot of attention and seems quite calm and self-assured in the midst of the firestorm he's created.

This was a great message but sadly $38 billion to Israel over the next decade is a done deal, thanks to our Great Leader. Seems to me nothing can be done about that now. What we can do is push BDS, and I would be willing to donate much more to a billboard stating simply, "Boycott Israel Until Palestinians Have Equal Rights." (One like this was put up in Chicago, if I am not mistaken).
