If someone criticized Israel for accepting money from Germany for the dead Jews’ confiscated property, the United States accepted $1.5 billion from Libya for the Americans who died in several terrorist attacks sponsored by Libya in 1980s.
To add to the shame, the US paid $300 million to Libya for the victims of a retaliatory attack on Libya. Crime and punishment thus became morally equated.
Compared to the US-Libya settlement, Jews are cheap. Libya paid $1.5 billion for about two hundred Americans. Germany paid Israel close to $60 billion in today’s dollars—only forty times more—for you know how many Jews.
