Your report on the Israeli strike on missiles in Syria bound for Hezbollah shows how the warmongering nation of Israel continues to use the billions of dollars in military aid it receives from the U.S. every year to wage war against its neighbors — for which we get the blame ("Israel defends strikes in Syria," May 6).
Israel has bombed not only Syria, but also Lebanon and Gaza twice, while threatening Iran on a daily basis. In addition, Israel brutally occupies the Palestinians, stealing their land and water.
It is past time for the U.S. to end all financial, military and diplomatic aid to Israel and become an honest broker for peace in the Middle East. For too long we have been the lackey of Israel and AIPAC, and that has caused us much harm and expense.
