Why must Americans pay with their tax dollars and blood along with billions in foreign aid every year to Israel?
Thomas Knapp wrote: [Washington’s political establishment went berserk when US Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) publicly noted that US-Israel relations are “all about the Benjamins”, slang for $100 bills, referring to money shoveled at American politicians by the American Israel Public Affairs Group (AIPAC).
Omar was accused of antisemitism, immediately by Republicans, shortly after by members of her own party, and bullied into apologizing. She may or may not be prejudiced against Jews, but even if she is, that wasn’t her real offense.
Her real offense was publicly mentioning the irrefutable fact that many members of Congress take their marching orders from a foreign power’s lobbying apparatus (an apparatus not, as required by law, registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act), at least partly because those marching orders come with promises of significant donations to those politicians’ campaigns.
For decades, howling “antisemitism” any time the matter came up proved an effective tactic for shutting down public discussion of the “special relationship” under which Israel receives lavish foreign aid subsidies, effective control of US foreign policy in the Middle East, and lately even state (and pending federal) legislation requiring government contractors to sign loyalty oaths to Israel’s government.]
Doug Rossinow teaches history at the University of Oslo, and is currently writing a history of American Zionism from 1948 to 1995. On March 6, 2018, he wrote:
[AIPAC, the swaggering and influential American Israel Public Affairs Committee, which brands itself as “America’s Pro-Israel Lobby,” is holding its annual policy conference. Top politicians from both parties vie for speaking slots at the group’s glitzy gala. Everyone pays AIPAC attention. And for good reason. Since the late 1970s, it has informally directed substantial campaign contributions toward chosen candidates for Congress. Its messaging on the Middle East is essential in Washington’s foreign-policy conversation.]
Fink’s Bar in Jerusalem is about to become a household name and get a whole lot of unwanted publicity from the actions of one of its patrons Benjamin Netanyahu. The Israeli Prime Minister is recorded on tape at the bar threatening the destruction of the United States in 1990.
Veterans Today has corroborated from multiple sources the conversation recorded by the US Defense Intelligence Agency in which Netanyahu called for the destruction of the United States.
[“If we get caught they will just replace us with persons of the same cloth. So it does not matter what you do, America is a golden calf and we will suck it dry, chop it up, and sell it off piece by piece until there is nothing left but the world’s biggest welfare state that we will create and control. Why? Because it is the will of God, and America is big enough to take the hit so we can do it again and again and again. This is what we do to countries that we hate. We destroy them very slowly and make them suffer for refusing to be our slaves.”]
The context for the plan to destroy the United States piece by piece was a meeting at Fink’s where a group of Israeli espionage agents, Netanyahu among them, were celebrating the capture of 5 KG 84 cryptographic devices which they stole from the United States military with the help of Canadians working for the UN in the Golan Heights, thus giving the Israelis and any of their clients direct real time access to all US State Department, Naval, and NATO communications.
All the bastards bashing Rep Ilhan Omar should be able to provide the answer to why the Jews, from 250AD to 1948, have been kicked out of 109 locations on the planet. These morons should be able to explain the USS liberty to all Americans. These maggots should be able to tell the American people why they have more allegiance to Israhell than the Constitution of the United States of America.
So to the Congress of the United States of America, WE THE PEOPLE demand that you define the word “anti-Semitic”.
You think that you have the right to defend a foreign government, but Rep Ilhan Omar doesn’t have the right to her constitutionally guaranteed free speech. Think again.
To all members of Congress, I say unequivocally: Your damn job is to attend to the business of the people. Do your FN job.
