But the problem here is that Israel sells our national secrets to third parties (i.e., Russia, China). If this isn't enough, at $3-5 billion in foreign aid per year, US taxpayers foot the bill for this spying.

I say that Congress needs to put US interests first -- for a change. If the US would pursue its legitimate interests in the Middle East, my guess is that the chances for real peace in the Middle East would increase immeasureably.

Israel, and Clinton sold space secrets to China. Now they are competing with us in that always American business segment.

Israel sells our national secrets to Russia and China??? What is your source of information?? Please show one article from a responsible news publication where that fact is stated. It is totally irresponsible to make such statements about an ally of the United States without direct knowledge.

Your lack of knowledge about the Middle East and your understanding of what would bring real peace there is conspicous. The US is pursuing its legitimate interests in the Middle East by supporting Israel. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and is the only pro-American country in the Middle East. The amount of intelligence the US gets from Israel about the region is immensely important to the security of the United States. In any hostilities against the United States in that part of the world, the only country the US can count on as an ally would be Israel. The US gets plenty for its foreign aid. What does it get from Jordan and Egypt, which combined get more Foreign aid from the US than does Israel? The real chance for peace in the Middle East is a strong leader of the Palestinians who really wants peace. Yassir Arafat is not that man.
