    Well I could certainly listen to the argument to reduce our foreign aid, if we're going to be handing out money, they're probably the best place we can be sending it.

    Hello Frederick,

    Although pro-Palestinians choose to ask about United States Aid to Israel, a sizable amount also goes to Egypt and even more to Afghanistan (and it is mostly security aid rather than economic).  

    Afghanistan receives the most U.S. military aid:

    Heading: "Here’s where all that U.S. foreign aid is going and why, in one chart":

    How the United States benefits from its alliance with Israel:

    Further example: Military technology development with the United States:

    - - - - Start of extract: - - - -

    “The U.S. and Israel also cooperate jointly on a number of technology development programs, notably the Arrow missile system and the Tactical High Energy Laser (also known as Nautilus).[3]”

    Since such questions are typically posted by pro-Palestinians, what of your money that goes to the "Palestinian" Arabs?

    Research on the Internet indicates that there is a lack of any proper international auditing to ensure that your International Aid to the Palestinians, is not spent by them for military / terrorist purposes.

    It is neither accurate nor moral to separate the party paying for terrorism to be carried out as does the Palestinian Authority aka Fatah, from any entity who fund them, such as the European Union that fund the "Palestinian Authority / Fatah";

    BOTH such entities support terrorism.

    Let’s examine what happens to the Aid Money in reality your tax money (in whichever country you live), that is sent to the Palestinians:

    1) ON WHAT DO THE PALESTINIANS SPEND YOUR AID:

    https://www.quora.com/What-does-Palestine-do-with-...

    2) ON WHAT DO THE PALESTINIANS SPEND YOUR AID:

    Rewarding Palestinian Terrorists with Pensions:

    While there is no evidence that Israel targets civilians, the “Palestinian” Arabs are addicted to ethnic-hatred of Jews and target Israeli Jewish civilians as policy. The Palestinians cynically whitewash their anti-Jewish hate-war as: “uprising”, “defence”, “desperation”, “struggle”, “resistance”.

    If Palestinians injure or kill an Israeli Jew including children, and the Palestinian terrorist is imprisoned as a result, the “Palestinian Authority” aka Fatah and the “Palestinian Liberation Organisation” pay a reward-“pension” to the family of the attacker (an example of which see further down) - No wonder then that anti-Semites feel such emotional-attachment to the Palestinians!:

     - - - - Start of extract: - - - -

    “The Palestinian Authority Martyrs Fund is a fund operated by the Palestinian Authority for the purpose of paying a monthly cash stipend to the families of Palestinians killed, injured or imprisoned for involvement in

    attacking, assisting in attacking, or planning to attack Israel,

    or for other types of politically-inspired violence,

    including riots, violent demonstrations, and throwing rocks,

    and also for paying cash stipends to the families of [Palestinian] innocent bystanders killed during violent events.

    In addition, it provides pocket money to all Palestinians imprisoned in Israeli jails for ordinary crimes.”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestinian_Authorit...

     - - - - End of extract - - - -

    The “Palestinian Authority” aka Fatah (which together with the P.L.O. pays the terrorism reward-“pension” of their “Martyrs Fund”, and also funds “Hamas”) is itself funded by the “European Union”. Many who demonstrate in European countries against anti-Semitic damage to Jewish tomb stones, have no problem with their governments continuing to fund the Palestinians, thereby also funding the Palestinian ongoing war of ethnic-murder against Israeli Jewish civilians including children.

    Palestinian Authority aka Fatah uses its Foreign Aid to reward terrorism:

    http://nypost.com/2017/07/28/palestinian-authority...

    Here is an example result from the Palestinian on-going anti-Jewish hate-war:

    Israeli girl, Hallel Yaffa Ariel age 13, fatally stabbed in her bedroom in West Bank” by a Palestinian terrorist, June 30, 2016, The Guardian:

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/jun/30/isra...

    3) ON WHAT DO THE PALESTINIANS SPEND YOUR AID -

    Corruption:

    (Please see the source which I have put into the Sources area of this answer.)

    The Palestinians have no incentive to renounce hate and conflict, and to sincerely negotiate peace, because while the E.U. pays “lip-service” to supporting a two-state solution and respecting Israeli security, the E.U aid “may” be used for Palestinian terrorism. As the E.U. in reality are fully-aware, the Palestinians do NOT support a two-state solution but instead seek ALL the land of Israel as shown by what is taught by the Palestinian education system, and from the “Palestinian National Charter”. The “European Union” therefore intentionally-funds the Palestinian war of ethnic-hatred against Israel, by providing the Palestinians with prodigious ready-cash, and political support.

    After all, there is no proper E.U. auditing as to how E.U. “aid” to the Palestinians is spent, and both the E.U. and the Palestinians are well-aware of this.

     - - - - Start of extract: - - - -

    “The new 2013 report of the Court [European Court of Auditors] reveals that $2.7 billion in direct aid [foreign aid given by the European Union] to the Palestinians between 2008 and 2012 could not be accounted for and appeared to be lost. In addition, EU investigators who visited Jerusalem and areas on the West Bank were unable to obtain information or speak to Palestinian officials about corruption in the areas they controlled.”

    I hope this helps.

    exactly, this is a huge problem, and is why the GOP always complains that the social security and american social programs are taking up america's money; nothing but misdirection.

     the GOP believes that money is the way the USA can buy respect, pride, and friends; this is because of the political bleief in manipulation of people as the means for social prestige, political power, and wealth. there is nothing of the real ethical values that a purist revels, machiavellian politics for power over others is the path of politics. 

    the GOP denies equality and fairness in american politics, so, why is that?

     it is because of the subconscious motivations which puts "power" over others, above real achievement and affiliation.

    this is why palestine can not resolve its own life-problems and blames israel. this is why the government of the US gives israel the money, to protect it.

    however, instead of advancing as a philosophy which embraces 'truth", it embraces shallower values for its own power and social position.

    bad politics all around.

    All foreign assistance spending makes up less than 1% of the budget. There are more important areas to focus on first, like the 8.7% spent on federal debt interest.

    It is a drop in the bucket compared to the waste in the budget
