You guys love being treated like idiots, don’t you??? “Israel receives about $3 billion in annual U.S. foreign aid.” That's true. But it's still a lie. The problem is that Israel receives a variety of other aid from the U.S. federal budgets. At least $525.8 million in other subsidies above and beyond its $3 billion from the foreign aid budget, and yet another $2 billion in ongoing federal loan guarantees. The aid amounts to giving every resident of Israel 500 dollars per year in US taxpayer money.

The vast majority of "foreign aid" given to ALL foreign nations goes to AMERICAN military contractors and other private corporations who have bellied up to the public trough.

ALL foreign relations policies are aimed at satisfying some domestic policy agenda.

So to write an entire article to ask that question of how Israel beats the economic odds and make them look like they do this all on their own is a sham!! I don’t think it has anything to do with “being the chosen people” unless you are referring to being chosen by the Political Global Elite who support them with other people’s money!!!

This "IS NOT" about disliking Israel or the Jewish people who work so hard to stay there.

This "IS ONLY" about objecting to the medias attempt to treat all of you like you are idiots!!! Like it or not it "IS" your money and we have a bunch of Political saboteurs to the Constitution who seem h,ell bent on giving it away while we are 16 trillion in debt and counting!!!

You think 500 bucks makes them prosperous? Our welfare idiots get about 20k at least more than that.

You are right as "ALL" foreign aid is not just UN-Constitutional and should stop for that reason alone but Billions are given to support evil all over the World. A perfect example is the half a billion sent to the Syrian Rebels who also happen to be Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood. Not really friends of Israel or the US!! The entire foreign policy rots of a stench you can smell all the way to the moon!!

Israel’s economic prowess currently stands in stark contrast to its neighbors. How did the country now labeled an ‘economic miracle’ manage to beat the odds? Seth Mandel explores this for Townhall Magazine.

In July 2012, Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican nominee for president, landed himself in hot water for uncharacteristically politically incorrect remarks. At a fundraiser in Jerusalem, Romney pointed out the economic disparity between Israel and the Palestinians. Geography could not explain it, but something else could;...
