Is there not a depression going on in the U.S.? Or at the very least a major recession. I don't understand where this money is coming from.. We've sent about 5 similar aid packages to Palestine over the last 10 years to improve or rebuild their infrastructure so that Israel could come along and destroy it. I wonder how much of this aid package will go to Hamas to build rockets.....
