Is US Foreign Assistance To Israel Kosher?

The following summary from the Congressional Research Service’s report entitled, U. S. Foreign Aid To Israel (Jeremy M Sharp 4/11/14) shows you where your tax dollar is being laundered. (h/t wendy)

Summary

This report provides an overview of U.S. foreign assistance to Israel. It includes a review of past aid programs, data on annual assistance, and an analysis of current issues. For general information on Israel, see CRS Report RL33476, Israel: Background and U.S. Relations, by Jim Zanotti.

Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II. To date, the United States has provided Israel $121 billion (current, or non-inflation-adjusted, dollars) in bilateral assistance. Almost all U.S. bilateral aid to Israel is in the form of military assistance, although in the past Israel also received significant economic assistance. Strong congressional support for Israel has resulted in Israel receiving benefits not available to any other countries; for example, Israel can use some U.S. military assistance both for research and development in the United States and for military purchases from Israeli manufacturers. In addition, U.S. assistance earmarked for Israel is generally delivered in the first 30 days of the fiscal year, while most other recipients normally receive aid in installments, and Israel (as is also the case with Egypt) is permitted to use cash flow financing for its U.S. arms purchases. In addition to receiving U.S. State Department-administered foreign assistance, Israel also receives funds from annual defense appropriations bills for rocket and missile defense programs. Israel pursues some of those programs jointly with the United States.

In 2007, the Bush Administration and the Israeli government agreed to a 10-year, $30 billion military aid package for the period from FY2009 to FY2018. During his March 2013 visit to Israel, President Obama pledged that the United States would continue to provide Israel with multi-year commitments of military aid subject to the approval of Congress.

The FY2014 Consolidated Appropriations Act (P.L.113-76) provides the President’s full $3.1 billion request in FMF for Israel. In addition, it provides another $504 million in funding for research, development, and production of Israel’s Iron Dome anti-rocket system ($235 million) and of the joint U.S.-Israel missile defense systems David’s Sling ($149.7 million), the Arrow improvement program (or Arrow II, $44.3 million), and Arrow III ($74.7 million).

For FY2015, the Administration is requesting $3.1 billion in FMF to Israel and $10 million in Migration and Refugee Assistance. The Missile Defense Agency’s FY2015 request for joint U.S.- Israeli programs is $96.8 million. The Administration also is requesting $175.9 million for Iron Dome.

Keep in mind this is just stuff on the books. Their fleecing goes on in a myriad of ways: from their hidden-in-plain-site taxes (careful, acknowledging the Kosher Tax makes you anti-semitic) to preferential treatment in politics, media, and education. Dual citizenship. Many duped, unsuspecting US citizens send money to poor little Israel. Ignoring of constant spying and secret theft and when caught, usually turning a blind eye (sometimes even aiding the criminal’s exit to avoid criminal prosecution).

Alcibiades Bilzerian explains how it works in the Vet Today post, How Much does Israel Cost the Average American?

While so many Americans are subsisting on food stamps, losing their homes, and accumulating credit card debt they will never be able to pay off, the US is giving Israel $3 billion in direct foreign aid every year and, according to Congressman James Traficant, another $12-17 billion in indirect aid such as valuable military equipment deemed “scrapped,” loan guarantees, and preferential contracts. Israel is an affluent country with more than 10,000 millionaires and, according to the International Monetary Fund, was one of the few economies that weathered the 2008 financial storm nearly unscathed.

It’s hard to calculate the exact amount of foreign aid America gives Israel every year because the Israeli lobby in America secretly campaigns to give the tiny desert nation as much under-the-table aid as they can secure. In 1992, AIPAC President David Steiner was caught on tape bragging about his organization’s incredible power in America. Steiner first admitted to manipulating the US Secretary of State into giving Israel more foreign aid. Steiner said he, ”met with [Secretary of State] Jim Baker and I cut a deal with him. I got, besides the $3 billion, you know they’re looking for the Jewish votes, and I’ll tell him whatever he wants to hear … Besides the $10 billion in loan guarantees which was a fabulous thing, $3 billion in foreign, in military aid, and I got almost a billion dollars in other goodies that people don’t even know about.”

According to the General Accounting Office (GAO), Israel operates the largest spying operation on America of any of our allies, and they use some of their intelligence gathering to steal American business secrets, which costs the US jobs and money. The two largest and most powerful Israeli lobbies in America, AIPAC and the Anti-Defamation League, have both been caught red-handed spying for Israel (see the 2005 AIPAC Scandal and 1993 ADL Spying scandal). Shortly after the September 11, 2001 attacks, the FBI rounded up more than a hundred Israeli spies who were caught infiltrating dozens of federal agencies. It was one of the largest spy rings in American history.

Maybe they should be cut off. Maybe we should cut off the morons here in America still duped into protecting this racket.

I’m just thinking out loud. I know this lady who has two sons that are pill heads and won’t work (or can’t because they have been busted for drugs). Since these two boys were teenagers, she has given to them. Always a little bit more as they grew up because the trouble they got into was worse as time passed. I kept telling her to stand her ground and stop giving to them because all they were doing is depleting her meager wealth and when she was poor they would leave her to die by herself. I began that series of discussions 20 years ago and now the “boys” are grown-assed pill heads with barely a pot to piss in and this woman blames herself. She barely can make ends meet and those two still stay pilled up and take her shit whenever they get the inkling.

America, you are that old woman.

  1. Sure it’s Kosher! We only bought the paper and ink and paid the labor cost of printing it. We then GAVE it to them, and they loaned it to us, and we pay it back to them with interest! But it is their money!

    Murder suspect on personal jihad may have been groomed in Seattle barber shop

    The ADL/FBI JTTF investigation centered around “Crescent Cuts,”
    a small barber shop frequented by Brown.
    The shop was owned by Ruben Shumpert, a convicted drug dealer
    familiar to Gomez and other members of law enforcement.
    http://wendytheredhead.wordpress.com/
    “Ruben Shumpert was a prison convert to Islam,” noted Gomez.
    “He learned to cut hair in prison. Ruben would not only cut hair,
    but was attempting to indoctrinate a lot of the youth into radical
    forms of Islam by showing them videos about the 9/11 hijackers and
    World Famous Al Quida.”

    Gomez added,
    “in 2004 with Ali Muhammad Brown,
    what we were looking at was the raising of funds for overseas material
    support of terrorism….which is totally a “Jewish” thingy but the braindeadgoy
    who watch Talmud Vision cannot see a “JEW” as a Terrorist even though

  3. Bad Bargain

    Our deal with Israel is beyond belief:
    They get the money and we get the grief.

    Dead Weight Israel

    They’re the ethnic-supremacist ally
    That tells us what to do,
    And further sullying our image,
    They’re aggressive expansionists, too.

    Occupied Country

    Like the Germans we now know how it feels
    To be by foreigners bossed.
    It’s like we’d fought a big war with Israel
    And we had, unfortunately, lost.
