US Congress Approves Over $3.2 Billion in Aid to Israel

submit to reddit

The House of Representatives earlier this week approved a significant increase in the level of military aid to Israel, pushing the level to $3 billion in flat military aid, with an additional $205 million set aside for a short range rocket system.

Both of the increases were already planned as part of a memorandum of understanding between the United States and Israel, but were formally approved as part of the 212-206 vote in the House on Wednesday.

Rep. Steve Rothman (D – NJ) said the increase in aid to Israel “sends a strong message to both our enemies and allies,” but also comes at a time when the US has only just abandoned the Israeli peace process over its inability to convince Israel to agree to even a short term freeze.

The failure of the peace talks has led a number of Western nations to react negatively to Israel’s settlement expansions, but it appears that, for the US, the peace process was never more than a side story and remains irrelevant to the question of heavily arming the nation.

    As an American I am naturally at full war with Khazar led fake/Israel.

    They make war upon my people and my Country.
    Stop robbing me US-Federal-Government and giving it to these un-Godly racist terrorist.

    I will shoot all Mossad agents I find on US soil on site. I am working to uncover their terror plots against US citizens, like they did on 9/11.

    That is my duty to my fellow country men.
    Israel has been at an undeclared war against the American people for 100 years for certain, probable even longer.
    And any government who does not protect us from these racist who wish us harm, is my enemy.
    Federal Government, stop your bed laying with the enemy, or American Patriots will be coming to Fed’s houses with arrest warrants from the “We The People Standing For America”

    -Signed, the American People
