Ron Paul fights to end military aid for Israel

submit to reddit

Presidential hopeful Ron Paul has condemned a plan being considered in the United States House of Representatives that would allow for the US to continue aiding in the defense of Israel by equipping the Jewish state’s military with added weaponry.

From Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) attacked the contents of an act currently up for discussion that, if passed, would reestablish America’s major role in Israeli affairs. Rep Paul fears, however, that it would do more harm than good for all nations involved.

To House Speak John Boehner, Paul said that H.R. 4133, the United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012, “is another piece of one-sided and counter-productive foreign policy legislation.”

“This bill’s real intent seems to be more saber-rattling against Iran and Syria,” insisted Paul, “and it undermines US diplomatic efforts by making clear that the US is not an honest broker seeking peace for the Middle East.”

“The bill calls for the United States to significantly increase our provision of sophisticated weaponry to Israel, and states that it is to be US policy to ‘help Israel preserve its qualitative military edge’ in the region,” added the congressman.

The bill itself was created to reaffirm America’s “commitment to Israel’s security as a Jewish state,” “provide Israel with the military capabilities to defend itself,” “expand military and civil cooperation” and “encourage Israel’s neighbors to recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state,” among other matters according to the official synapsis included in the legislation. It was introduced in March by Rep. Eric Cantor and discussed for around one hour on Wednesday afternoon before a motion to reconsider was laid on the table and agreed without objection.

Explaining his opposition, Rep. Paul told his fellow lawmakers that “While I absolutely believe that Israel – and any other nation – should be free to determine for itself what is necessary for its national security, I do not believe that those decisions should be underwritten by US taxpayers and backed up by the US military.”

“This bill states that it is the policy of the United States to ‘reaffirm the enduring commitment of the United States to the security of the State of Israel as a Jewish state,’” said the congressman. “However, according to our Constitution the policy of the United States government should be to protect the security of the United States, not to guarantee the religious, ethnic, or cultural composition of a foreign country. In fact, our own Constitution prohibits the establishment of any particular religion in the US.”

“This bill will not help the United States, it will not help Israel, and it will not help the Middle East,” concluded Paul. “It will implicitly authorize much more US interventionism in the region at a time when we cannot afford the foreign commitments we already have. It more likely will lead to war against Syria, Iran, or both. I urge my colleagues to vote against this bill.”

    We all work like oxen in the US, pay high taxes and get nothing in return, no benefits.
    I resent that my hard-earned money goes for more weapons for Israel.
    Apparently, Israelis have universal healthcare, and we here are struggling to get health insurance.
    It is like Israel, through politicians it influences, is stealing money from us. ENOUGH!

    Made up news, polling numbers, fabricated surges, idiotic endorsements, delayed vote counts, I cannot imagine democracy prevailing in November.

    Our next election is shaping up to be as big of a sham as the last. Do you know why Sarah Palin’s bus tour was really canceled? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate and chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she’s not running? Know what leaked out? Sarah Palin and Cain aren’t in the race for the same reason, the truth leaked out.

    Read Ezekiel chapter 38…
    The sulfur that will kill millions foes of Israel could be the H2S in the deepness of the black sea: if the H2S deep saturated water begins to bubble, the black sea will explode (as lake Nyos exploded), killing many muslim pagan nations…
    Pagan? yes: the Quran is a counterfeit of the Bible! Compare the 10 commandments of the Bible and the 10 commandments forged by Muhammad…

    In 313 C.E., Roman emporer Constantine allowed the jew church of christianity to become its new, singular god religion. Constantine was sold on the idea that, with a one god religion, he would become second only to god in the new vertical power structure. The idea that he would no longer be in a democratic-type, horizontal power structure where his power and place amongst the many ‘gods for this’ and ‘gods for that’ diluting his power and suddenly having all the power sounded awesome. And because god never shows up to dispute anyone ….EVER, Constantine would essentially become god as his words he claims to be those of god’s cannot be disputed, not without suffering the ultimate penalty, that is. Once the roman/jewish soldiers conquered Europe’s ancestry and forced the bible (the jew’s heritage)upon them during the Dark Ages, the soldiers were no longer needed. Today, the Roman Empire is gone, but the jew church still stands today as a soveriegn nation in Italy called the vatican. It is still as jewish at its core as it was in the beginning. The vatican is the richest bank in the world. There were 12 tribes in the beginning that set out to become “kings of ALL nations”, under orders from abraham. This is one. They’ve come a long way. The U.S. is being suckered into an alliance – just as Constantine/Rome was. You cannot count the number of jews in high places in the U.S. democracy. The same thing happened in Egypt (with joseph becomming vizier – second in power only to farhoe)and Rome etc. History proves they have a definite modus operandi wherever they’ve been, and wherever they’ve been they’ve been brutally evicted as their devious intentions became known. Those instances served as trial and error learning opportunities, and practice makes perfect. For a people who claim to be victims of a holocaust, it numbs the mind to learn they now own Germany, and the Lutheran church as well. How many jew officers are there in the U. S. military in critical positions awaiting orders to turn against the U.S. and commandeer everything? Wake up Americans!! We will fall the way of the Roman Empire if we stay this course.

    Do you belong to a religion that has the bible as its unifying core? Was your ancestry from Europe? It took the jews over 1000 years to brainwash our ancestors and terrorize them into accepting the bible and raise one generation after the next to believe the lie. But how would you know? It’s easy – recall your European ancestry and the lands you’re from and the tales of YOUR heritage. If you cannot do that, and you’re relatives, and you, carry a bible as your defining, religious core – guess what?!?!?!? Sad but true.
