Wake Up Call Nebraska! Number of Tax Dollars Nebraska Is Giving To Israel's Military- And What Else Nebraska Could Be Doing With It

  • From 2009 to 2018, the United States is scheduled to give Israel-- the largest recipient of U.S. assistance-- $30 Billion in Military Aid!
  • Through its illegal 44-year military occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza Strip, ISRAEL misuses U.S. weapons in violation of U.S. law to kill and injure Palestinian civilians, destroy Palestinian civilian infrastructure, blockade the Gaza Strip, and build illegal settlements in West Bank and East Jerusalem.
  • Nebraska's Tax Dollars - Military Aid to Israel
  • Total FY2009-2018 = $233,754,500.46
This Money Could Have Been Spent Instead To:
  • Provide 2,838 households per year w/affordable housing grants OR 
  • Provide 3,880 job seekers per year w/green jobs training OR 
  • Provide 6,912 children per year w/early reading education OR
  • Provide 189,306 people per year w/primary health care.
