@denikombucha Israel's government is trash, but it's also a little disconcerting how openly the US government is willing to say "We bought and paid for you, why are you acting like we don't own you?"
@Tak No. We didn’t ‘buy and pay for’ the torture and genocide of the native Palestinian ppl or ‘pay for’ Israeli settlements to be built on their graves. Check yourself.
Most of the US money is used to support the conservative Ultranationalists who in turn spend that money on US weapons to escalate the conflict. It's *never* used to support peace / the opposition.
I mean, it's not any different from what the US does in other countries they "support".
@Tak @denikombucha Of course, Bernie Sanders (a Progressive) does not belong to Right-wing apparatus (Republicans, "centrist" Democrats) that is funneling US government money to the Ultranationalists. It's not like the people who bought the Israeli government are also the people who admit that this happens.
