1. was it legal?
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (11.27.12)
This group is alleging that Clinton and Obama are criminals that broke the law. Next they will say that Obama supplying guns to criminal gangs to murder Mexicans was a crime.
2. Excellent! This will hopefully change
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (11.27.12)
the way business is done in Washington DC. I was infuriated that obama gifted the pals a dime much less nearly a billion dollars. Whose side is obama on? This law suit should clarify things for the State dept. Congress, and the house. STOP FUNDING TERROR.
3. Well done. May you win and expose their sins
John ,   NZ   (11.27.12)
Ephraim ,   Jerusalem   (11.27.12)
Let's hope a judge has the guts to do the right thing and hear this case. By the way...The article did not mention WHERE the suit was filed? That seems to be a pretty relevant part of the story.
5. us aide
emunah ,   israel   (11.27.12)
What is the difference between the PA then and egypt now. Immediately after the present 8 day conflict both egypt and hamas boasted of their close bond and confirm continued alliance. All while hamas' new leader took the stage to assure the world it would they are planning
6. I am NOT a plaintiff 2 this suit!
Israeli-American ,   Israel/USA   (11.27.12)
It is misleading to write an article with this headline. It is misleading because it gives the impression that ALL Israeli-Americans are plaintiffs to this suit. It basically sounds very similar to what Israeli Victims of Terror do...they have an individual point of view or belief and they make a generalization and attempt to turn it into the point of view or belief of ALL victims of terror living in Israel. Since this group and their lawyer are doing this I can only say...NO YOU DO NOT REPRESENT ME OR MY VIEWS!
7. The USA, as I understand, is in a deficit
muriel ,   israel   (11.27.12)
so it is remarkable that she can allot millions to the palestinians, egyptians, israel, and fund the war in afganistan etc. etc. In any case, it would be interesting to note to whom, for what, are the monies being used by the palestinians - america wake up and follow through !
8. logical decision....
shlomo ,   Brazil   (11.27.12)
from US point of view, they finance Iron Dome, and have to test it so they give money to PA to attain their goal.
9. US shouldn't aid any country
Sheik Rattle & Roll ,   USA   (11.27.12)
while we are in a deficit. The money should be diverted to fund US mainland projects such as new housing construction and schools and scholarships or road projects or better yet to help small businesses that are on the verge of collapse so they can keep Americans employed. That should shut up the people that say the aid dollars are spent in the US.
10. no 6
ashqelon   (11.27.12)
why? so its ok for us money to be spent on weapons of terror instead of aid , where do you live and exactly where were you last week when rockets were flying over our heads and killing innocent beautiful mothers and young men???? its irresponsible of the US and typical of its spoilt over indulged civilians.
11. The article din't say ALL, relax.
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (11.27.12)
12. #9 Not quite so fast
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (11.27.12)
If the 3 bill is removed from US to Israel so will hundreds of thousands of American jobs. Better yet, end all US taxpayers money given to any and all Arab/ Muslim nations who use that money to fund endless terror.
13. # & Muriel iran sponsors Gaza's rockets to terrorize Jews.
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (11.27.12)
First they came for the Jews.....
14. @10 not that I owe it to you but....
Israeli-American ,   Israel   (11.27.12)
I live in Sderot I am a widow due to the fact that my husband was killed in a terrorist attack on a bus in Jerusalem in which I was injured. now what was that you were going on about?
15. Who is this group?
Ellen ,   Arad   (11.27.12)
Obviously they are not speaking for American Israelis. They are a group of Am-Is representing themselves or some right wing organization. Who are they? Who is behind them exactly what is their real agenda? The answers will probably not surprise us. It will be interesting to see the courts findings.
16. The suit will be dismissed but the attorney will collect.
Michael ,   California, USA   (11.27.12)
Attorneys always win. Those "Israelis" have no case and no right to sue. Maybe they can turn around and sue the attorney for not advising them their filing in court is frivolous? Let me think, will he defend himself by saying his mother is Jewish?
17. no you dont owe me anything
ashqelon   (11.27.12)
but what exactly are your views about us money being spent on terror!!!! you didnt say or is that too private since you were "going on " so much about what your views are not i was just curious
18. Israeli-Americans sue Clinton over PA aid money #15
Elsie. ,   Gush Halav.   (11.27.12)
#15, Ellen, a voice of good sense at last, but I think we will never learn the truth,and I fully agree with you.
19. TO #4
Yael ,   NYC, USA   (11.27.12)
US Federal court. Big deal. Good stuff & i am fully supportive of this initiative. The only reason why we have terror to the extent that we do is because we partially fund it (Saudis through oil, PA &Gaza through Aid, Muslim Brotherhood through Egypt aid, etc).
20. to #9
Yael ,   NYC   (11.27.12)
21. Win the case! I support it.
Miron ,   USA   (11.27.12)
Make claims that win, not sound good. And do win it. I support the case and the case is just.
22. Number 2
Larry Mondello ,   Syracuse US   (11.27.12)
He loves and supports the enemy ..Why ? He is a Liberal...He does not believe in defending his own nation.
23. Let's set the record straight on US $aid to Israel
P'd off yid ,   South of tel aviv-Is   (11.27.12)
The annual 3bn $ the US gives us is only for the purchase of US military hardware (mostly invented by Israelis). Israel cannot use that money for example to buy grain from Canada or wheat from Russia. That is the stipulation. For that 3bn $ Israel undertakes to sell and give all its high tech innovations to US and the US only. If it were ever removed (the US would never allow that) Israel would be free to sell its technology to Russia, China, India and timbuk tu and could easily make 40bn $ a year. That would be something that America could never allow so they buy our politicians and scientists for 3bn a year-a great deal for them! I only wish and dream that the pathetic 3bn in US "aid" would dissappear forever and would put an end to american meddling in Israeli politics and end the technological stranglehold the US puts us in.
24. @ 23
Sheik rattle & roll ,   USA   (11.27.12)
I couldn't agree with you more. Let Israel go it alone militarily and diplomatically and leave us alone and we will leave you alone. Israel has more than enough money to do what ever it pleases. The US has major problems and we need to focus on America and America only. The US will become an isolationist country in 10-20 years, so Israel better learn how to go it alone and get China, Russia to provide it with a VETO.
25. why financing israel is legal?
Amira ,   Canada   (11.27.12)
US-taxpayers aid to israel is supporting illegal occupation of Palestine, war crimes against Palestinians, and settlers terror. It should be illegal. Palestinians have the legitimate right to self-defense agains occupation, as per Geneva Convention and International Law.
26. US aid
Sally Howland ,   Chicago, USA   (11.27.12)
Stop all US aid to Israel Now. GIVE THE iron Dome to Gaza
27. #10
Tom Lowe ,   USA   (11.27.12)
Did you get your free US money this month?? Of course you did!!
28. to 25
Jennie ,   Israel/US   (11.27.12)
How much do you know, being in Canada about US tax payers ? International Law ? Quote one, please...No ? Thought So... And yes, even if US helps Israel, it goes to an ally, the only Democratic country in the ME...What legitimate rights are you talking about ? Self-defense of the so-called palestinians ? Sure, they do have the right to defend themselves... But the fact is, that they are the instigators and the attackers, the infiltrators, the violators of our sovereignity and those, who are targeting our children and peaceful citizens for brutal murders,...etc.,etc....
29. to Sally @ 26
Jennie ,   Iarael/US   (11.28.12)
I know, it is hard for you to digest, but for FYI, the Iron Dome, is the exclusive invention of the Israeli genious... It has nothing to do with US...And it serves the best interest of US, to support Israel, the only Democracy in the ME.. Rest assured, that even without aid of US, Israel would persevere and survive...
30. Running for cover frm Hamas Rockets that Hillary funded....
Dina ,   USA   (11.28.12)
Just wait until I meet her in our meetings in NY. If this is true, shame on her and she will not get to be president.
