U.S. taxpayers, courtesy of their Israeli-owned U.S. Federal government, will be footing President Obama’s $2.775 billion bill to support Israel’s illegal nuclear weapons, despite not being able to — or, more appropriately, not wanting to — support the many U.S. states that are still reeling from Wall Street’s defrauding of America.
On June 30, the Israeli government committed an act of piracy. The Israeli Navy illegally boarded the “Spririt of Humanity” ship in international waters, kidnapping its 21-person crew comprised of members from 11 countries, including former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney and Nobel Laureate Mairead MaGuire, confiscating medical supplies, olive trees, reconstruction materials and children’s toys. The “Spirit of Humanity” was enroute to the Mediterranean coast of Gaza, the world’s largest concentration camp. It’s not the first time that type of crime has been committed by the Israeli government.
Gaza is home to 1.5 million Palestinians who have been brutalized by Israel’s ongoing illegal ethnic cleansing. The Israeli military is using American-supplied weapons and armaments to drive Gazans out of their homes and and off of their land which is being stolen by the Israeli government.
While the U.S. is great at talking about ‘human rights,’ it does nothing to stop the human rights abuses — at home or abroad — especially when Israel is the one doing the abusing. Then again, it’s well known that Israel owns the U.S. Congress and President Obama. We have an Israeli citizen serving as President Obama’s Chief-of-Staff in our White House. As noted by Paul Craig Roberts, when it comes to Israel, the American government is a puppet state that does what it’s told.
Israel has already gotten away with war crimes it committed in Gaza earlier this year, as well as numerous other violations of international law for the past 60 years. The Israeli Army went so far as to make shirts promoting the killing of Palestinians. It’s a pretty sure bet that nothing will be done about Israel’s act of piracy in international waters.
While states such as California are reeling — from incompetent leadership and the fraudulently created market meltdown — and in need of bailout money from Washington are purposely allowed by the U.S. Federal Government to fail, Israel’s terrorist state is given almost $3 billion in taxpayer dollars, much of which is used to fund all kinds of weaponry from the U.S. Government. Americans are losing jobs and homes, being bankrupted by Wall Street fraud, large health insurance companies and a corrupted Federal government, yet America is giving Israel almost $3 billion. What’s wrong with this picture?
Obama’s Budget “Marked Up” and Passed Behind Closed Doors
The House Appropriations Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs reportedly held a “mark-up” session on President Obama’s fiscal year 2010 budget request in a tiny Capitol room behind closed doors, denying activists and the press access. The subcommittee quickly accepted and passed Obama’s budget request.
Recently it was confirmed that Israel possessed nuclear weapons and has for decades. Giving Israel money and military aid actually violates U.S. law — though as with all the other violations of U.S. law by the Federal government, nothing ever gets done about it, at least not yet.
At the same time the U.S. is raising its monetary aid to Israel, Obama’s proposed budget reportedly also imposes harsh conditions on the Palestinian Authority in order to receive aid. The budget also calls for the Obama administration to respect Israel’s claims on jerusalem, which contradicts international law and the Oslo Agreements. Obama’s proposed budget can be found at GPOAccess.
Isreali Crimes Committed Against the U.S.
On June 8, 1967, Air and Naval forces of Israel brutally attacked the U.S. Navy intelligence ship USS Liberty, killing 34 men, knowing full well that it was an American ship. The Johnson administration immediately began covering up the crimes — a practice that continues to this day — committed by the Israelis.
For years, Israel has reportedly run one of the most aggressive and damaging espionage networks targeting the U.S. Isreal and its intelligence services pose a threat to the U.S. that is second only to China. Israel has spied on the U.S. since at least 1954, but most likely since it was established. Even worse, because of joint partnerships with U.S. telecoms, Israel may be gathering up all the same information the National Security Agency (NSA) is illegally gathering up. For years, Israeli spies have held high-level jobs in the U.S. government. More on the Isreali spying on the U.S. can be found from What Really Happened and Rense.com. These are just a few of the many crimes that Israel has committed against the U.S.
Do not misunderstand me. When talking about Israel, I’m referring to the state, not the people. The people of Israel are in the same situation as the American people — under the thumb of extremely corrupt government that is guilty of committing an untold number of heinous crimes. Everytime someone exposes the truth about Israel, someone inevitably cries about anti-semitism. As noted by Adam Solomon, they do that because the only way they can get away with everything they do is by hiding the truth. The only way to show what they’re truly like is by exposing the truth.
Beginning in 2009, the U.S. reportedly plans to give Israel $30 billion over 10 years, much of which will be spent on U.S. weapons to further the terroristic actions of the Israeli government. A list of the ridiculous amounts of money given by the U.S. to other countries while the U.S. slowly rots can be found in this article from Daily Kos. It’s time to quit financing the Military-Industrial complex and start taking care of our own and it’s time to hold those guilty of committing the heinous crimes accountable.
