Let's see, Israel is the largest foreign recipient of our taxpayer's dollars. Israel gets $3 billion each year. Israel has 7.5 million citizens. If I do my math correctly that works out to $400 per Israeli each year of American taxpayers wealth being redistributed to them. Is this an example of socialism? A few years ago I backpacked throughout South and Central America for a year. I met many Israelis along the backpack circuit. They say that 75% of young Israelis like to get out and see the world for about the same time as I was traveling. I couldn't help but think that American taxpayer dollars is subsidizing that lifestyle. Israelis are nice people but they, as our European allies are, wealthy too.
