The $3 billion a year that the U.S. provides to Israel in aid goes to their military. According to the rules that are tied to the aid, any military spending of said money can only be used in defense. What is going on in Gaza is not defense, but offense. Israel is clearly in violation of the rules that the U.S. has tied to their aid to Israel, thus they are required to cut all aid to Israel. Now will they do this? I don't think Bush will, but would hope that one of Obama's first act will be just that.
