U.S. allegiance to Israel

"Israel is looking to boost the amount of money the United States sends it every year for military aid to as much as $5 billion, a number that would give it not only the largest chunk of U.S. defense aid money, but also more than triple the amount any other country receives in total aid from the U.S....
"If Israel's military funding were $5 billion in 2016, that would equal 14 percent of every dollar the U.S. sends around the globe."

As an example of the "moral high ground" America sometimes likes to assert, this strikes me as iffy, at best. Give me four nanoseconds and I think I can find a better use for my 14 cents.
