Should America Reevaluate its Aid to Israel?

The Obama-Biden Presidential Transition team has set up a number of questions for Americans to answer on their website, Change.gov. One of them includes whether America should reevaluate its aid to Israel that they posted on January 12. "Reevaluate whether the level of and the basis for the aid we provide Israel is appropriate given our tough economic circumstance. Presently I fail to see the benefits to our country that would justify the extraordinarily high per-capita level of aid," it states under the category "Re-evaluate aid to Israel". What are your thoughts? Should it be reevaluated given America's tough economic situation? If so, why? If not, why not?http://citizensbriefingbook.change.gov/ideas/viewIdea.apexp?id=087800000004lmt&srPos=1&srKp=087&srS=1
