Hey, I do think you missed something Hermie, didn't you read where Israel has a huge Natural Gas supply off shore? I think I read it on WND awhile back. And you talk about costs? to U.S? Read what Steve wrote below..but then do you believe in God? If there is a GOD? That would explain why you hate the Israeli';s so much. You imply that those of us who support Israel are not patriotice Americans, well what could be more patriotic than STANDING WITH GOD ALMIGHTY, since HE gave us this Republic and it was Dedicated to HIM by George Washington, himself on his Inauguration day.
