The “Welfare State” of Israel

I’m pretty damn pro-Israel.

I am. Unabashedly so.

They fight. They work for their own welfare. They built an oasis out of a desert.

That said.

How long are we supposed to defend these guys? How long are we supposed to put out security and treasure and blood on the line for these people? When do they stand on their own?

If they can’t, then they’re not a Nation State. They’re at best a dependent territory. Perhaps, they should become a state. Join the Union. Then I could see supporting them indefinitely. They could pay Federal taxes with the rest of us.

If they can never stand on their own, should they stand at all?

That is my question.
