"Israeli, Palestinian children buried; Israel arrests Arafat guards
  
Yitzhak Pass is comforted by relatives and friends as he prays in front of the body of his daughter Shalhevet during her funeral procession in Hebron on Sunday  

JERUSALEM (CNN) -- Funerals were held Sunday for two young victims of violence between Israelis and Palestinians, while politicians on both sides spoke out about the arrest of six Palestinian guards by Israeli troops.

In the West Bank town of Hebron, hundreds gathered to bury a 10-month-old Jewish infant.

Israeli officials said the baby was killed last week by Palestinian sniper fire from the Palestinian-controlled hillside that overlooks their settlement. The girl's father was shot and wounded in the same attack.

Within hours after the funeral, violence broke out in Hebron when Palestinians fired from the hillside, and Israel Defense Forces responded with shelling. No one was reported wounded.

In Ramallah, West Bank, mourners carried the body of an 11-year-old Palestinian boy through the streets. He died Sunday from injuries he suffered two weeks ago during clashes with Israeli soldiers in the village of Deir Nizam. "

No Mud - here you go - we have been told by our press

http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/1999/israeli.elections/stories/israel.us/

Books, subsidies and $3 billion a year
Among factors contributing to Israeli-U.S. ties:

Of nearly 15 million Jews worldwide, more live in the United States (5.6 million) than in Israel (5 million).
Many American Jews study in Israel, while many Israelis -- Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu among them -- have done the same in the United States.
Some American Jews have dual citizenship and vote in Israeli elections.
A free-trade agreement allows Israeli products to enter the United States without a tariff.

American Jews contribute heavily to Israel, and some contributions are tax-deductible, an indirect subsidy by the U.S. government.
Israeli politicians use American consultants, polling and media techniques.
U.S. and Israeli military share intelligence and weapons technology, and Israel is said to have carried out such covert operations for the United States as funneling arms to the contras in Nicaragua.
At $3 billion a year, Israel receives more U.S. aid than any other country, and 40 percent of the U.S. foreign aid budget.

Can I find the word 'trillions" in your quotes, fish?

Read the opening article please:

While it is commonly reported that Israel officially receives some $3 billion every year in the form of economic aid from the U.S. government, this figure is just the tip of the iceberg. There are many billions of dollars more in hidden costs and economic losses lurking beneath the surface. A recently published economic analysis has concluded that U.S. support for the state of Israel has cost American taxpayers nearly $3 trillion ($3 million millions) in 2002 dollars.
