$8 million a day to Israel just doesn’t make sense!
“On average, Israelis receive 10,000 times more US foreign aid per capita than other people throughout the world, despite the fact that Israel is one of the world’s more affluent nations.”

American taxpayers have given more money to Israel than to any other nation, despite the fact that Israel is one of the smallest and richest countries on earth.
Thanks to special interest lobbying, which, until now, has largely gone unopposed, Israel receives $3 billion American tax dollars each year. This comes to awhopping $8.2 million per day. But that is not all. Special arrangements that benefit Israel combined with aid paid out to other countries on its behalf cost Americans nearly $7 million more each day and thousands of jobs.
We can’t afford it – morally, financially, or strategically.
Why do we use the phrase “Blank Check”?
U.S. support goes far beyond the $8 million per day in financial aid that we give it. Israel and its partisans largely decree what American taxpayers give them: massive amounts of money, American weaponry and technology, trade benefits, UN vetoes, special treatment for its lobby, letting it off the hook when it spies on us and steals important resources.
There is never any debate over the massive financial aid given to Israel, and when it asks for even more money on top of its already huge annual allotment – which it frequently does – our politicians, under enormous pressure by wealthy campaign donors and lobbying organizations, give it to them… again without public debate or questioning. Even when Israel commits massacres, tries to sink a US Navy ship, kills Americans, violates U.S. laws, and ignores Presidential statements, our politicians give Israel massive amounts of our tax money.

Why “Blank Check”?
Israel’s special treatment goes far beyond receiving $8 million per day in US tax dollars. Thanks to its powerful lobby, Israel almost always gets what it wants: American weaponry and technology, trade benefits, UN vetoes, and much more. Learn more: The Staggering Cost of Israel to Americans
