Michigan Taxpayers will give Israel $728 Million over the next 10 years

February 9, 2010

According to a new project from the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation the US government has already promised the State of Israel $30 billion in military aid from FY 2009 – 2018.

The campaign now has a new online resource to help people in the US figure out how much of their tax dollars will be used to fund Israel. According to this new resource taxpayers from the state of Michigan will give $728,813,339.85 in Military Aid to Israel over the next 10 years.

This money could have been spent instead to:

Provide 8,849 households per year w/affordable housing grants OR

Provide 12,098 job seekers per year w/green jobs training OR

Provide 21,549 children per year w/ early reading education OR

Provide 590,228 people per year w/primary health care.

The US Campaign to end the Israeli Occupation also is encouraging people to sign a petition to send to Senators Levin, Stabenow and the Congressperson representing your district.

We also encourage you to share this information with people through your own networks. How many people do you know who are hurting economically would be supportive of this much of their tax dollars going to Israel?
