Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been indicted on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust. Should the US withhold aid to Israel until they resolve their corruption issues?

Yitzhak Rabin got caught up in those laws around 1977 and resigned. He went on to lead the nation again and was Prime Minister when he was assassinated in 1995. Then it was the conservatives using the laws to bash a liberal. Now it’s liberals using the laws to bash a conservative. What goes around comes around.

ABSOLUTELY!!! I mean Trump and his minions are so very concerned about corruption, well except for their own.

Didn’t most of this have to do with laws in exchange for media coverage, not money?

At the very least, maybe stop using him as the model for how an elected official should act.

Who would pay for their Universal healthcare, free education and abortions on demand if the US didn’t subsidize them?

No, although Netanyahu allegedly took bribes and traded special favors for positive media coverage, there is no indication that our aid to Israel is being used for corrupt purposes. That is better than what we can say in a lot of other countries that we give foreign aid to.

I’m torn on this one ... they need and rely on financial aid, and it’s the People we should concern ourselves with, but how does one know that the funds get to where they are supposed to go?
Netanyahu has always walked that fine legal edge. Guess he got “caught”, as the Republicans call it.

Yes! I love this standard as it will save a hundreds of millions of dollars. Yes, Squid, I get that you’re attempting to make a myopic point about Ukraine while ignoring the broader point that we give aid to countries that hate us, countries that are corrupt beyond belief and countries who use the aid against us.

I want aid to all of them to stop, and until Mr Netanyahu finds another source for his alcohol needs, even our best ally should be cut off.

Squid ... and included in this should be the jailing of MrO for his arrogance of using my tax dollars to give the queen of England an iPod with his speeches on it.

That kind of graft is disgusting!

I wouldn’t give aid to any country. I ONLY WOULD PAY THEM FOR FAVORS!
