Good. That aid is much needed.
However, we must not lose sight of the fact that the US appears to be playing both sides of this conflict.
Israel, which US officials repeatedly refer to as our "ally", remains the largest recipient of military assistance, having received some $3.1 billion in military aid last year alone.
Our $71 million in humanitarian aid to Gaza pales in comparison.
And it seems ironic, given that our aid to Israel has contributed to the need for our aid to Gaza.
