What is an ally? According to the dictionary, an ally is one who is in friendly, helpful association with another, often by treaty. America has only one true ally in the Middle East, and that is Israel.

All other associations with Middle Eastern nations are purely opportunistic on the part of those nations. Yet we continue to impoverish ourselves by borrowing money from China in order to offer aid to Egypt, the Palestinians, Libya and many other countries that should go begging for themselves instead of relying on us not only to borrow on their behalf, but to pay the interest to boot.

Let us quit offering aid money without stipulations that require good behavior. These untrustworthy nations will either lie about their activities or go deeper under cover and continue their same deceptive ways. America needs a hard and fast policy of not offering financial assistance to any nation in the world that does not live by the same constitutional rights that we declare to be given to all people by the hand of God, not government. In the Middle East, that is only Israel.
