$40 TRILLION dollars!
Back in 2008, I found a "study" that claimed that Israel had cost US taxpayers $3 trillion. Of course it was an absurd number, based on a bizarre estimate of how much oil prices went up since 1973 and blaming Israel for all of that.

Apparently, blaming Israel for costing the US $3 trillion is not nearly enough anymore. Some moron named Dr. Gideon Polya has gone from the merely crazy to batsh*t insane by now claiming that Israel has cost the US over $40 trillion!

For comparison, the annual US federal budget is about $3 trillion.

So how does this idiot come up with such an absurd number? Well, he takes the same $3 trillion number that had been estimated by the previous idiot, and adds $4-$ trillion for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars which are of course Zionist wars, adds 0.7 trillion for the value of the lives of US servicemen who committed suicide since September 2001 (obviously Israel was behind 9/11), and then - to put icing on the cake - he claims that 15.6 million other Americans who died since 2001 are Israel's fault, and the value of their lives is $30 billion.

Polya helpfully adds, "This is an under-estimate because it does not consider the millions of preventable American deaths before 9-11 linked to Zionist subversion and perversion of America."

Just in case you don't get Polya's point, the name of this article is "American Holocaust."

Check out this brilliant analysis:

About 1.3 million Americans die preventably each year, the breakdown being as follows: 15,000 Americans are violently murdered annually; 21,000 avoidable under-5 year old US infant deaths annually; 21,000 US opiate drug-related deaths annually from US restoration and protection of the Taliban-destroyed Afghan opium industry; 30,000 Americans suicide annually, with 1 in 5 being US veterans; 31,000 gun-related US deaths annually; 33,000 Americans killed by motor vehicles each year; 45,000 US deaths annually from lack of medical insurance; 70,000 Americans die annually from air pollution (e.g. from coal burning, vehicle exhaust, carbon burning in general); 75,000 American alcohol-related deaths annually; 225,000 deaths per year in the US from iatrogenic (medical personnel-related) causes ; 300,000 Americans die from obesity-related causes; and 443,000 Americans die from smoking-related causes (roughly 1 in 5 of all deaths and 49,000 or about 10% from passive smoking) [13, 14]. Some qualifications can be offered e.g. it should be noted that some of these areas overlap e.g. homicides and suicides overlap with gun-related deaths, and smoking-related deaths would take a long time to stop after nationally legislated cessation of smoking.

This huge carnage of 15.6 million preventable American deaths since September 2001 must be seen in the context of a fiscal perversion outlined in section #1-3 above in which $8-10 trillion in roughly today’s dollars has been committed in this period by the Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist One Percenter American Establishment to the strategic interests of nuclear terrorist, democracy-by-genocide Apartheid Israel.
According to Polya, every American who died from disease or suicide or murder or pollution or alcohol or smoking or obesity since 9/11 has really died because of Israel. (His methodology of valuing their lives is also laughable, by the way - according to him, all these deaths actually saved America $30 billion. But logic is not Polya's strong suit.)

Naturally, this news has been reproduced by the Arab media.
