      WSJ Columnist Overstates U.S. Aid to Israel by Almost $1 Trillion

      In an Oct. 8 column entitled "Getting to Know Our New Buddy: OPEC," Wall Street Journal opinion writer Holman Jenkins overstated U.S. aid to Israel by almost a trillion dollars. His number is based on a study by economist Thomas Stauffer, which cannot be considered a credible source given that, among other absurdities, it includes aid to Arab countries as part of aid to Israel.
