2/24/17 Grant F. Smith on the billions in yearly US aid to Israel, and the apologists who claim it’s no big deal for such a great US ally

Grant F. Smith, director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy, discusses the $254 billion in inflation-adjusted US aid to Israel since 1949; the pro-Israel think tanks that try to hide Israel’s large share of foreign aid by comparing it to US expenditures and troop deployments in Japan, Germany and South Korea; and why Israel has no real common interests with the US and hasn’t reciprocated like an allied country should.

Grant F. Smith and IRMEP are co-sponsoring “The Israel Lobby and American Policy” conference on March 24, 2017 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. Check out the list of keynote speakers and presenters at their website.
