In 1948, the people who wanted to form a Jewish state carried out a massive terror and ethnic cleansing campaign against the occupants of Palestine, expelling about half of them (750,000) from their land and into concentrated areas (Gaza and West Bank). Israel has slowly continued colonizing even those areas, which were specifically reserved by the UN for Palestinians. Israel takes all the best land and resources, such as water. Here is a visualization of what has happened till year 2000, and also currently happening with massive support from Obama.
Obama Requests Largest Amount of Military Aid to Israel Ever,
According to page 172 of the State Department’s report on the FY 2013 budget, foreign military financing to Israel has increased steadily under Obama:
* In 2011, Israel received $2.994 billion;
* In 2012, Israel is estimated to have received $3.075 billion; and
* In 2013, Obama requested for Israel to receive $3.1 billion—almost half of the entire global request for foreign military financing.
This is consistent with the ten-year Memorandum of Understanding between the United States and Israel.
The increase in funding will help the Jewish state maintain its qualitative military edge and keep its citizens secure as the Middle East continues to undergo rapid change.
