" foreign aid " = mostly a scam, to start with: hardly any of it reaches the people-in-need, most of it is actually an export-subsidy

I did some resaerch+maths, several years ago, and according to my estimate, Austria's 'foreign aid' (which is more (% of GDP) than most countries give, but way less than AT once promised ! ) pays hardly for 1/3 of the interest '3rd-world-countries' have to pay to Austria('s money-lenders).

" Since the October War in 1973, Washington has provided Israel with a level of support dwarfing the amounts provided to any other state. It has been the largest annual recipient of direct U.S. economic and military assistance since 1976 and the largest total recipient since World War ll. Israel receives about $3 billion in direct foreign assistance each year, which is roughly one-fifth of America's entire foreign aid budget. In per capita terms, the United States gives each Israeli a direct subsidy worth about $500 per year. This largesse is especially striking when one realizes that Israel is now a wealthy industrial state with a per capita income roughly equal to South Korea or Spain. " -- John Mearsheimer in 'The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy'
