After Latest Bailout … Israel Is Going To Boss U.S. Around (Again)

“REPUBLICAN” SPEAKER INVITES ISRAELI LEADER TO ADDRESS CONGRESS || By FITSNEWS ||  Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been invited by “Republican” U.S. House Speaker John Boehner to address Congress on the issue of Iran next month – a move intended to put U.S. president Barack Obama at a political…


|| By FITSNEWS ||  Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been invited by “Republican” U.S. House Speaker John Boehner to address Congress on the issue of Iran next month – a move intended to put U.S. president Barack Obama at a political disadvantage.

And no doubt to boost Boehner’s abysmal support among “Republican” voters …

According to Boehner, Netanyahu was invited to speak to a joint session of Congress on February 11 regarding the “grave threats radical Islam and Iran pose to our security and way of life.”

Really?  America needs a refresher on that?  Last time we checked our country knew all about the grave threat of radical Islam … (yet we keep inviting additional reminders via our non-sensical military interventions).

Anyway … the last time we checked in on Netanyahu, he was busy lecturing the United States “not to ever second guess me again” regarding his nation’s war with militant Palestinians in Gaza (an effort which is subsidized extensively by U.S. taxpayers).

Netanyahu is no stranger to Washington, D.C.  Or trash talk.  In 1996, for example, he told a joint session of the U.S. Congress that his country no longer needed to rely on American aid.

“I believe that we can now say that Israel has reached childhood’s end, that it has matured enough to begin approaching a state of self-reliance,” Netanyahu said.   “We are going to achieve economic independence.”

Oops …

In 2011, Netanyahu made another appearance before Congress – telling lawmakers “you don’t need to send American troops to defend Israel.  We defend ourselves.”

Again … he’s full of it. One hundred percent full of it.

Despite Netanyahu’s protestations, Israel has continued to rely on American aid – to the tune of more than $3 billion a year.

Fifty-five percent of America’s “foreign military financing” currently goes to Israel – which accounts for a quarter of the country’s entire military budget.  Oh … and that funding doesn’t include the costs associated with joint U.S.-Israeli military projects, including costly missile and rocket defense programs like the “Iron Dome,” “David’s Sling,” “Arrow I” or “Arrow II.”  Combined, those programs sucked $503.7 million out of the latest U.S. defense budget.

Last summer, Congress sent Israel a “bonus” payment of $225 million to help subsidize its war in Gaza – while Israel received an additional $619.8 million in “emergency” military aid in the latest “bipartisan” budget deal (on top of its annual $3.1 billion handout).

Sheesh … all as the increasingly squeezed out U.S. middle class gets crushed under our government’s $18 trillion (and counting) debt.

American taxpayers have no business subsidizing Israel’s defense – something we’ve made clear in previous posts.  Nor do they have any business subsidizing militant Islamists in the Middle East – something we’ve also made clear in previous posts.

Don’t get us wrong: These people can kill each other all they want: All day, every day.

And America absolutely should follow Netanyahu’s warning to “never second guess” him again … just as soon as he takes his hand out of our pocket.

What about all those unborn Palestinian children, murdered by the IDF?

But those are just brown people, so it’s OK, amirite?

Flip Coscoe January 21, 2015 at 3:07 pm

Like all those dead ‘brown’ people in Obama’s Chicago.?

a child January 21, 2015 at 3:17 pm

Who said anything about Obama, you fuck wit? Why do you support the murder of unborn babies in the Middle East? By the way, you realize ISIS was created and is supported by the U.S. and our allies over there, right?

Flip Coscoe January 21, 2015 at 3:20 pm

You have a long,scraggly beard…don’t you?

Everybody here January 21, 2015 at 3:25 pm

As opposed to your old, scraggly beard of a wife? You might not think the outside world knows, but we know about your and GrandTango’s very close ‘companionship’.

a child January 21, 2015 at 3:27 pm

‘Flip’ the subject, as usual. Why do you support the murder of unborn babies in the Middle East?

Flip Coscoe January 21, 2015 at 3:52 pm

The ‘subject’ is this…do you support Israel or Radical Islam and the terrorists?

Typical liberal…hiding behind children ,if not aborting them.

a child January 21, 2015 at 4:11 pm

Keep ‘Flipping’,…. are you senile? I guess your nursing home has dail up? I support neither Israel nor Islam. Why do you support the murder of unborn children in the Middle East? Take as much space as you need, Flip Flop.

Rocky January 21, 2015 at 4:41 pm

I support killing ISIS and AQAP, with napalm if needed, and to stop flushing good money down the toilet to a wealthy country that has all it really needs – in other words – I oppose Welfare for Israel. Why do you support welfare so much?

a child January 21, 2015 at 8:00 pm

Hey Flip, you gonna answer the question? Why do you support a country that murders unborn children and attacks US warships hoping to blame on another country so we’ll go to war for them?

grandtangosuglydog January 22, 2015 at 10:09 am

says the idiot who when confronted with israels history went right to the …”yeah well the dems abort children” lie.. such a sad pathetic little troll cant even make a good argument without telling bullshit.

Flip Coscoe January 22, 2015 at 10:25 am

MULLAH OBAMA strike again!!!

grandtangosuglydog January 22, 2015 at 11:16 am

ahhh changing the subject again when confronted with facts..its all little pussy flip balls flip. the troll with no balls..

Rocky January 21, 2015 at 3:32 pm

Flip – can you name one time that Israel helped us militarily with troops in any of our Middle East conflicts? Any?

Flip Coscoe January 21, 2015 at 3:46 pm

U.S.-Israeli security cooperation dates back to heights of the Cold War, when the Jewish state came to be seen in Washington as a bulwark against Soviet influence in the Middle East and a counter to Arab nationalism. Although the world has changed since then, the strategic logic for the U.S.-Israeli alliance has not. Israel remains a counterweight against radical forces in the Middle East, including political Islam and violent extremism. It has also prevented the further proliferation of weapons of mass destruction in the region by thwarting Iraq and Syria’s nuclear programs.

Keep rooting for Radical Islam and the terrorists Rocky and please continue to show your ignorance on the relationship between the U.S. and Israel. ‘closet’ muslim Obama is proud of ya.

Flip's a pussy January 21, 2015 at 4:22 pm

All that without offering up a single IDF troop to help our boys. Google ‘USS Liberty + Israel’ you America hating fraud!

Rocky January 21, 2015 at 4:43 pm

Wow. Did you Google that. Hey, the Cuban Embargo is from the Cold War too – as are 57 Chevy’s, M-14 rifles and three-button flannel suits. Flip – come on over to the 21st century – we’re all over here. Come out of the past.

Bible Thumper January 21, 2015 at 5:19 pm

“come on over to the 21st century”
That’s what Obama said to Romney about his concern over Putin.

Ha! Netanyahu can’t defeat rock throwing children. Even with our WMDs at his disposal?

Don’t forget to add Lindsey Graham and John McCain to those two.

Rocky January 21, 2015 at 9:10 pm

Standing up with the people who murdered Jesus. Interesting.

Flip Coscoe January 21, 2015 at 9:14 pm

It is Biblical and required as Obama is a Muslim and supporting Radical Islam including CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood.ISIS and Iran.

a child January 21, 2015 at 11:26 pm

Yet you support the murder of unborn children by the IDF. Why?

Flip Coscoe January 21, 2015 at 11:41 pm

I am big into numbers. The Democrat Party has advocated and supported the murder of 60 MILLION unborn children since Roe V. Wade.It is their religion.

How many unborn children have been murdered by IDF in defense of their own children?

Thanks a lot January 21, 2015 at 2:58 pm

Boehner represents who again? You fucking republicans sure know how to pick them.

Uncle Sam January 21, 2015 at 3:00 pm

Why do our politicians love Israel more than the U.S.?

Smirks January 21, 2015 at 3:09 pm

Fear of AIPAC.

Flip Coscoe January 21, 2015 at 3:09 pm

Why does the Democrat Party hate America and support CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood?

Hymie Bagleton January 21, 2015 at 5:07 pm

Dude, have you ever had a decent bagel? Seriously, once you have one you’ll know why Israel should be the 51st state, why they run our foreign policy, and why they get so much financial aid from us.

Elfego January 22, 2015 at 6:18 pm

You better look around or rethink that statement. Everything done in America the last 6 years has been done to destroy Israel. It is almost like the rest of America going after Rhode Island. Be honest first and go from their!

Rocky January 21, 2015 at 3:27 pm

Israel is important. Why they are our closest ally in the region.
Remember how many troops they sent to Iraq to help us defeat Saddam? Zero.
How about the troops the sent to help us with the Surge? Zero
The number of troops they sent to help us with Kuwait? Zero
OK, the aircraft they sent to help us with Lybia? Zero
Already, but how about the number of ships they sent to the Persian Gulf to help with Iran? Zero
And the number of sorties they flew over Iraq in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 to help with the insurgents? Zero
How about the number of times they’ve joined us on strikes in Yemen against Al Quaada? Zero
Troops to Afgahnistan? Zero
Forces to help with Sudan? Zero
Oh, but they helped us with the sanctions on Russia – right? No, when we cut off American chicken, they inked a deal to sell Israeli chicken in its place.
Wait a minute. They haven’t done a damned thing for us. For $3.5 billion a year (enough to give 700,000 kids $5K to go to community college each year). Starting to wonder.
They buy US planes right? And tanks? No? They build them all in Israel?
Krikey – they might just be more worthless than tits on a bull.
Last think – Johnny – big deal – all the Jews in NYC and Miami vote Dem straight line.

Rocky, you lame dumb downed history re-writer.

If you would just add 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003 … You might remember that Israeli fighter bombers took out Sadamn’s nuke makers and a dozen other instances of Israeli military support for our efforts.

Rocky January 21, 2015 at 9:06 pm

I’m not going to Google it Edward, but I believe the Israeli attack on Saddams nuclear power plant was circa 1981 – about six years before Saddam stuck an missile into the side of the USS Starke. Then again, there’s the USS Liberty that the Israeli airforce shot up killing about a dozen US sailors – ooops. What were the other instances of military support for our efforts besides price rip-offs for crappy beer and food again? So how many troops went with us into Iraq that called Israel home? Maybe you can enlighten me?

grandtangosuglydog January 22, 2015 at 10:05 am

Israel only acts in Israels self interest. They didnt take out anything to help us, they acted in self interest only. To believe different when viewed with the facts is just plain stupid.

FastEddy23 January 22, 2015 at 2:11 pm

Oh Bummer … not acting in the same self interest?

philbert66 March 3, 2015 at 11:49 am

Yes FastEddy and lets nor forget who pushed who in to that quagmire of a fucked up Iraqi war giving false intel of WMD’s.. That’s right Israel. It was all to supposedly get rid of one more of Israels many enemies.

FastEddy23 March 3, 2015 at 12:46 pm

The one problem: Those WMDs existed and still exist. Right now ISIS has control of them.

Ask Polish Military, ask Google Earth Community, ask US military intel …

philbert66 March 3, 2015 at 1:20 pm

Right on, I’ll be sure and check same zionist sources that said Iraqi troops were massing on border of Egypt prior to our invasion of Iraq and that Iran has nuclear weapons although the IAEA says otherwise…

Tazmaniac January 21, 2015 at 5:56 pm

I couldn’t give a crap about the Jewish religion or Christian’s newly found love of Israel. The most important thing is they are the poke in the eye to Russian or Chinese expansionism and keeps the whole Petro Dollar thing in check and at 3 Billion, it’s a steal compared to what would happen otherwise. They are nothing but our Chihuahua/Pit Bull mix on a chain. Why Israelites want to live in that hell hole of a piece of Real Estate is beyond me. BTW, I find their Source Tactical products to be top notch, so they have that going for them.

FastEddy23 January 21, 2015 at 7:43 pm

That $3+Billion is spent on tech advancements like better drones, “Iron Shield” guidance, satellite mapping, medical equipment purchases … The Israelis already make their own weapons Uzis, tanks, fighters … and they are going to need all of that and more to defend against ISIS, Ham-Ass, Hezbulabula, Syrian “rebels” and the rest of the assorted Islamo-Fascists.

Those three car loads of Hezbulabula and Iranian generals? 100% dead now, but they were on the Syrian Lebanon Israel frontier to plan the next big attack on Israel.

The USA has just three allies in the Middle East … and we only have one of those that we can really count on against ISIS and Iran.

Rocky January 21, 2015 at 9:07 pm

And only two sell us oil, which is really all we need. How much oil do we get from Israel again?

FastEddy23 January 22, 2015 at 2:02 pm

Actually we get quite a bit from the Israelis and we will be getting more. They now control that huge find in their part of the Mediterranean … Conoco is the lead on exploration and drilling there.

Rocky January 21, 2015 at 9:03 pm

Hey Bibi, quick reminder – Congress authorizes the money – but Obama cuts the checks when he feels like it. You might want to rethink your visit to Capital Hill.

Manray9 January 22, 2015 at 11:06 am

It should be illegal for any seeker or holder of public office in the U.S. to accept money or gifts from agents or organizations which represent the interests of a foreign power. It should be illegal for agents or organizations representing the interests of any foreign power to give money or gifts to any official in the U.S. Elected office holders should act only in the genuine national security and foreign policy interests of the U.S. With such a move, the “bought-and-paid-for” influence of AIPAC ends. The foreign policy and national security interests of the U.S. and Israel are not identical. Our politicians need to remember that fact.

chaim weizman January 22, 2015 at 1:36 pm
