Hold your horses! I just read an article in the Washington Post: Guatemala and Honduras are among the few nations that have approved Don’s designation of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The United States provides Israel over 3 billion dollars a year to help fund their military. Israel in turn provides military dollars to Guatemala and Honduras. I had no idea that my tax dollars were going to provide military assistance to those countries.

While I did not know of the Israel/Guatemala/Honduras connection,  I was certainly aware that the US provides funds to Israel Military.

Now my concern/question is: although I do not mind helping Israel military......If they can send money to other countries, why do they need our money??????
