Last year, the U.S. government gave about $7 million per day in military aid to Israel and gave no military aid to Palestine, according to www.IfAmericansKnew.org

Israel has used U.S. taxpayer money to kill thousands of Palestinians. People in Palestine have also killed Israelis, but since 2000, Israel has killed about six times more Palestinians, according to www.IfAmericansKnew.org
