If Jews want to defend Israel, then they can pony up the money to do it themselves. It isn’t the problem of the US taxpayer.

I'm not a Jew, (or a Fundamentalist Christian for that matter looking for Armageddon) but I'll gladly pony up my money to defend Israel. They are the only outpost of civilization in that hell hole of a region, and I think it is important to all people who love civilization they they survive.

In a sense, Israel today is on the front line between civilization and barbarism.

Think about it.

I have thought about it.

And my take is as I stated. The majority of Jews in the US don’t like Christians, they don’t like conservatives, they don’t like the US military, they don’t serve in the US military and the vast majority of US Jews vote for a political party that wants to defang Israel.

So... why should we put up with the political abuse that comes with supporting Israel? If the Arabs want to kill the Jews, hey, it’s a Jewish problem. Not mine. If American Jews decide to get their heads out of their posteriors on the issue and ask for help, well then we might talk again.

But I’ve long since reached the limits of my patience with the abuse heaped on conservatives by American Jews for their support of Israel.

One more time: If the Arabs want to kill the Jews... it’s a Jewish problem.

I’m with you: completely skeptical about religion in all forms, but the money we spend on Israel is a pittance compared to what we’ve squandered on the Europeans, and when it comes down to nut cutting time the Europeans outside of the UK will run screaming like a bunch of little girls, while the the Israelis will be all-in.
