BILLIONS of $of private monies from US citizens and companies, and the Arabs all KNOW it. Without all that support for Isreal from the US, the Arabs wouldn't have HAD to buy lots of Russian armanent, to try to retake Jerusalem from the Jews. The Arabs all know this to be the truth,. They aint THAT stupid and ignorant. Isreal never has ,and never will, be self supporting. The resources just AINT there, for the number of people there, given the tremendous drain put on them by the need to defend against the Arabs. The Arabs spend BILLIONS of $ each year to keep up that presure, and they know very well it TAKES billions of $ to resist it ,and they also know that Isreal's GNP just DOESN'T include that kind of money, left over after basic survival needs are taken care of. Nobody else is sending Isreal jack crap, and the Arabs know THAT, too.
