How is the payment to Israel of billions of dollars of tax money Americans are forced to pay legal?

Israel is a recognized religiously apartheid nation which is defined as a "homeland for Jews"? Why are Americans forced to pay over tax money to this religion in violation of the US Constitution which prohibits government from supporting or subsidizing any religion?

    Because the fundie lobby have a verse in the Bible that says God only loves people who love Israel. And they think that refers to the Tel Aviv regime, and the rest of you.

    israel is not an apartheid, and all nations are the homeland for their ethnic group (entire europe, asia, and africa are, so what makes israel an apartheid?)

    also, look it up, israel is number 19 with the most atheist % of the population in the world (jews are an ethnic group just as much as it is a religion. many, many jews are atheists/agnostics. as a matter of fact i'm pretty sure the founder of zionism was).

    so no, it does not violate the US constitution in any way.

    however, giving aid to the PA (palestinian authorities) IS against the constitution, as they pay 5 million $ salaries to convicted terrorists in israeli prisons EACH MONTH from AMERICAN tax payers. (which is a violation of the american constitution).

    search for everything i said in the net, these are all facts.

    For the same reason that Egypt (a Muslim country that is persecuting the Coptic Christians to death) for the same reason that Egypt is recieving "billions of dollars of tax money Americans are forced to pay legal?"

    To keep the peace before the whole damned area explodes in an Arabian led war!

    Yes it is true; Egypt is the second largest recipient of US funds.

    Israel is a sovereign nation, the only democracy in the Middle East and the only constant friend of the US. This country can support whatever other country it wishes to. Care to try again?

    Oh, btw, the US is also giving lots of money to other countries in the Middle East which, to use your colorful language, are Muslim apartheid countries.

    Mark: Israel, a "constant friend to the U.S."? Perhaps YOU would care to "try again": Israeli murders our citizens (Rachel Corrie), steals our military secrets, and bombs our ships (USS Liberty). With friends like that, who needs...oh, you know.

    Azonshin: Jews are a religious group, not an ethnic group.

    Tyred: Israel seems to be the "exception" to all manner of rules and regulations, including the Geneva Convention, which it consistently violates. Israel is in more violations of UN mandates than any other nation on earth, certainly more than Saddam Hussein was. If not for the lopsided influence of the Zionist lobby here in the U.S., Israeli's behavior would cause us to bomb it off the face of the planet. Go figure. Israel isn't an "ally"; it's the United States' parasite. If you want taxpayers to keep their hard-earned dollars instead of sending them to Israel, VOTE RON PAUL in 2012

    i do no longer think of he might desire to offer up his tax returns. yet whilst it did finally end up he refused or prevented paying taxes for 10 years might you particularly anticipate something diverse from him. the dazzling section is somebody like this might command 40 5% of the vote. to a pair, possibly... by using no longer paying his taxes makes him a hero.

    Anything is legal that the government wants to be legal/ I see you've brought out some contradictions from one of your respondents. I always hear Israelis saying God gave them the land and now here is a Zionist saying that it is the most Atheist in the world. I do like watching them trip up over their lies. (They think we won't notice!)

    And what kind of a friend it is that has never sent a single contingent to help those fighting its wars.

    Arabs are much better friends of USA, but Americans cannot see beyond what their Media presents.
