Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow...

...nor the massacre of 1400 people shall get in the way of U.S. military aid to Israel:
U.S. President Barack Obama will not cut the billions of dollars in military aid promised to Israel, a senior U.S. administration official said Wednesday.
He's talking about what the U.S. will do in response to the recent massacre in Gaza, right? Maybe the announced expansion of Israeli settlements in the West Bank? Right? ...Wrong:
The $30 billion in aid promised to Israel over the next decade will not be harmed by the world financial crisis, the official told Israel Radio.
U.S. effectively broke? Teachers being laid off en masse, hospitals being closed, state budgets still billions of dollars in the red? Not to worry, Israel, none of those things are as important to the U.S. ruling class as keeping you firmly in the saddle.
