 Takes on the World 
 Phil Giraldi, intelligence expert, journalist
 Jeff Blankfort  
Blankfort and Giraldi discuss his article in Unz Review, “Israel's $38 Billion Scam” (9/27) in which Giraldi points out that while in other deals with foreign countries, the US actually gets something in return not when it deals with Israel, noting Israel's new defense weaponry like Iron Dome are useless to the US, that unlike Arab countries, Israel offers US no bases and doesn't fight in its wars. He notes that the amount of aid Israel receives without debate proves Congress is completely under control of AIPAC. Senators like Lindsay Graham who want to give Israel even more money and restore the quarter of the funding that used to go to Israel's arms industry—now a competitor with the US--removed by Obama are saying that giving jobs to Israelis takes priority over jobs for Americans.

Giraldi also points out as he does in article, that groups like Jewish Voice for Peace, Code Pink and US Campaign to End Israeli Occupation that are ostensibly in support of Palestinians are missing in action when it comes to opposing US aid to Israel. He thinks nothing will change in the Israel-US relationship for the Palestinians no matter who wins the presidency but says Trump is far less likely to start war with Russia than Clinton, the neocons' standard bearer.
