    No, anyone who gives aid to our enemies should be imprisoned.

      Yes, if Trump donates to Israel, he should be imprisoned.

    No.

    Because that argument can then be extended to ANY government expenditure.

    But to have a referendum on ANY government expenditure is tedious and costly.

    Thus, the standard mechanism is to elect officials who will (you hope) spend money the way you want.

    Of course, you focusing exceedingly on foreign aid to Israel demonstrates that you are merely floating the question because you are anti Israel and not because you have given any serious thought to the matter.

    Only if we're given the choice to spend money on anything our tax dollars cover, including foreign aid to all the other countries to which we give it. There are many.

    Our taxes pay for a lot of things that many of us don't like. Personally, I'd rather that it not pay for military jets that cost a billion dollars apiece. (That's right: just one of those jets costs one billion dollars.) However, I accept that sort of thing as the price of getting things I DO want.

    Most Americans do.

    By the way, you might be interested to know that only 0.7% of the US federal budget goes to foreign aid -- that is, to ALL of the countries, combined, to which we give it.

    We spent $100 million to have Trump play golf on his properties and hundreds of dollars a day per each person holding thousands of immigrants whose only crime is being here, and many are children held in squalor cages. We have government agencies, especially military, throwing lavish end of year parties and wasting money to use up their budget in order to get it reallocated the next year. We allow drug companies to hold Medicare administration hostage, with a law against negotiating prices and patent extensions blocking competition only in the USA. We supplement petroleum companies to destroy the environment and block clean energy with extra taxes. We cut taxes on corporations and rich people for them to buy a trillion dollars in debt a year effectively giving them bonds. $28 million on licensing fees for the lush green pattern on Afghan National Army uniforms in a country that is 98% desert. Ar least $518,000 in federal grants to study how cocaine affects the sexual behavior of Japanese quails. The government has funded highways to nowhere as pork projects.

    Israel is our ally in a region we need watched and US company research centers have locations there in fields of cyber technology for internet protection, medical research, and technology centers. Some of the money allocates for purchase of US made weapons and defense methods and other weapons research is shared back with the USA. The $3.7 billion to Iraq and continued involvement in Afghanistan can be equally examined and Americans don't like or even visit either one of them. We still give USD 1.42 billion in foreign assistance for Egypt.

    The more the world shows negative towards Israel, the larger our military aid to them increases.

    Why do we give money to any country around the world, unless it is for disaster aid to be compassionate?

    A waste of money, and why US policy towards Israel is unreasonable in the "peace process".
