Below are five very important reasons:

1. Since 1942, the US has used its UN Security Council veto over 40 times to block condemnation of Israel.

2. Washington provides Israel with $8.5m in military aid every single day.

3. The US gives Israel $3 billion in direct foreign assistance each year, one-fifth of its entire foreign aid budget.

4. Since 1967 US military hardware used by Israeli forces has killed thousands of Palestinians in the occupied territories

5. US taxpayers subisdise each Israeli to the tune of $500 each year
