The criminal terrorist state of Israel not only receives billions of dollars of U.S. taxpayer money, it’s agents and partisans largely control the United States Congress, White House, and Supreme Court, not to mention the foreign policy making establishment, mass media, Hollywood, and other aspects of American society and culture, including academia. Israel receives unwavering diplomatic and political support from the mass media and political establishment on a bipartisan basis, regardless of her actions or policies. For all intents and purposes, Israel and the organized Jewish community own and control the United States.
Israel’s 10-year assistance agreement with the United States doesn’t expire until 2017. But in Washington time, that’s not too far away for Israel to argue now for increasing aid levels when the agreement is renewed.
Citing the ongoing instability in the Middle East, Israel is already pushing for an increase in U.S. military aid to address new challenges and to ensure Israeli military superiority in the region.
More specifically, in renewal talks that are ongoing between the two countries, Israel is pointing to, among other things, recent sales of advanced American weaponry to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Under a doctrine stemming from statutory language in earlier legislation, the United States, Israeli officials point out, is committed by law to ensuring that Israel maintains a “qualitative military edge,” — known more commonly as QME — over any of its Arab neighbors.
The 2008 law, seen as mainly declarative at the time, could provide the legal basis for increasing aid to Israel in order to ensure its military edge.
“Naturally we are talking about our needs, and as we get closer to 2017 we will discuss the details of what the next package will include and under what conditions,” an Israeli official briefed on the discussions said. […]
[…] the U.S. economy is still struggling to recover from its worst slump since the Great Depression, forcing the federal government to cut back on all government expenses, and raising new doubts about the affordability of a robust foreign aid program.
While other nations struggle to receive American taxpayer dollars, Israel rarely faces resistance. Strong support in the administration and Congress, coupled with favorable public opinion and a strong lobby advocating for the cause, has made sustaining and increasing military aid to Israel an easy sell. This time around should be no different, officials and experts knowledgeable about the process say, despite the changed environment.
“It is not a matter of arm-twisting,” Zakheim said. “There is a long-standing commitment to Israel’s qualitative military edge that has been accepted by the United States for good reasons.”
In preliminary talks, Israel began to lay out the principles it would like to see guide the next aid package. One will aim to put a dollar sum on the cost of maintaining Israel’s QME. This estimate will take into account what it will take to ensure that Israel’s armed forces are always one step ahead of their adversaries — or those Israel argues are adversaries — in the region. The second will be to include missile defense programs, currently funded through a separate Pentagon budget line, in the foreign aid program managed through the State Department’s budget. […]
American and Israeli officials who were involved in past aid negotiations described a process driven by needs, not by the total dollar amount of the aid package. It begins with Israelis presenting the threats they believe they’ll face in the coming decades and the weapons systems they’ll need to address these threats.
Before the last Memorandum of Understanding was signed in 2007, the deal was first finalized between President George W. Bush and Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and only then handed down to the lower levels where the details were worked out.
The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the mainstream pro-Israel lobby, is deeply involved in the process, mainly in convincing Congress, once the administration makes a decision on the aid levels, to approve the assistance year after year and to make adjustments throughout the 10-year period if needed. “There’s a pretty good system in place,” said a former pro-Israel activist who was involved in those discussions. “AIPAC people know all the details and make sure the best package for Israel is approved regardless of who controls the committees.”
I’ve often said that Israel and the organized Jewish community are no longer operating in the shadows, behind the scenes so to speak – they are operating in your face, arrogantly demonstrating and wielding their power and control over the United States government, media, banking and financial institutions, and other important sectors of American society in a blatantly obvious manner.
It’s no secret the Jews are running the show in America, which they themselves admit and boast about. I suppose this has always been the case, to a certain extent, as organized Jewry has long been a major player in American politics, finance, and media ownership. However, Jewish power and influence is so prevalent today, it can no longer be ignored, dismissed, or downplayed, and the Jews have programmed and brainwashed so many millions of people that all of this is actually a good development for America. The Jewish media and the perverted form of Christianity known as “Christian Zionism” have convinced most Americans that giving Israel billions of dollars in military and financial aid is actually a good thing, despite the fact that the very country in which they live is literally falling apart, not to mention that the terrorist state of Israel has attacked America on numerous occasions, including on 9/11.
