    How dare you, Mr. Leahy?!

    U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy is promoting a bill to suspend U.S. assistance to three elite Israel Defense Forces units, alleging they are involved in human rights violations in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

    Leahy, a Democrat and senior member of the U.S. Senate, wants assistance withheld from the Israel Navy's Shayetet 13 unit, the undercover Duvdevan unit and the Israel Air Force's Shaldag unit.

    We really shouldn't be sending money to support military units of other nations anyway...If they can't afford it themselves, then they can do without.

    wait... why have we been funding them on the first place?
    Jim Crow America relegated Blacks to the back of buses. Israel wants Arabs excluded from the bus entirely.

    We've given them several state-of-the-art nuclear-capable submarines for the same reason... and paid one-third of the bill.
