Sequester to Cut Education but Could Continue Massive Aid to Israel
American Public Unaware of the Screw Job!
The ambitious goal to be formally designated as the United States’ “major strategic ally” is apparently on the agenda at the annual American-Israeli Public Affairs Committee gathering that’s kicking off in Washington, known as AIPAC. If the plan becomes legislation, it could oblige the US to support Israel diplomatically and militarily if it strikes Iran.
Robert Naiman, policy director at Just Foreign Policy, says that it could also exempt Israel from any reduction in foreign aid that might result from budget cuts.
