Senate Democrats playing disgusting political game with Israel’s security

Call me whatever you want and personally attack me as you like for saying this, but Senate Democrats are playing a disgusting game with the security of Israel for political purposes.

The U.S .Defense Department has asked for emergency funding of $225 million in support of Israel’s Iron Dome protective weapon system that has had over a 90 percent success rate in shooting down incoming Hamas rockets. In the Democrat-controlled Senate, instead of allowing this as a stand-alone appropriations measure, they seek to tie this with funding support of President Obama’s request in the current illegal immigration border crisis. Funny — I didn’t see any caveats when the Secretary of State gave Hamas, a terrorist organization, $47 million in U.S. taxpayer dollars.

Who do you think the American people would rather see their taxpayer dollars support — more mock illegal immigrant courts, an Islamic terror group, or our ally in the Middle East facing an onslaught of incoming rockets?

This is the devious way funding is manipulated on Capitol Hill — and I don’t consent to either side doing this practice, so spare me the partisan diatribe. This is blatantly wrong and demonstrates to Prime Minister Netanyahu that for Democrats it’s not about doing what’s right, it’s about their immigration agenda.

And for you anti-big bank/government bank supporters, Democrats are also looking at linking support for the Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank to the illegal immigration funding measure. So you progressive socialist, Occupy Wall Street types, you can see your beloved Democrats will sell out their principles — if they had any — for anything.

And if you want to check, I voted against the renewal of the Ex-Im Bank as it is not the business of the federal government and skews the free market economy.

But just remember, as Israel fires Iron Dome missiles, their supply dwindles. It is a race to conduct a ground operation, Operation Protective Edge, that eliminated Hamas rocket firing points and capability, as well as destroying the Hamas ammunition stockpile, which is funded by Qatar and Iran. And did I mention, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon flew to Israel aboard a flight paid for by the Qataris?

Senate Democrats are playing a very horrible game with the survival of a nation, Israel. Call your Senators and tell them to have a single vote on the emergency funding for Iron Dome. If you choose not to, then we know on whose side you stand.

This would be one of the most diabolical schemes they have ever conducted. Hopefully pro-Israeli Jews who voted these people in will see “the handwriting on the wall” in terms of what this could do for their people and nation. Sure, if the Democrats decide to earmark amnesty in America (with legislation that would work to their personal political advantage) with Israel’s security (and it worked) than assumingly of course, they may be able to save their seats, but Israel could lose them permanently should (and this is what they hope) the assumed numbers of illegals create a voting bloc… Read more »

Why are we funding Hamas in violation of United States law in the first place? It’s reprehensible that we gave this terrorist organization, whom we are forbidden by law to support, money, which they undoubtedly used to fund the attacks Israel is now suffering. If Israel didn’t need this additional funding so badly, they would be better served to throw it back in Barack Obama’s face, and call him out for the deceitful, double-dealing Muslim backstabber and oath-breaker that he is.

I agree with what You are saying this has gone on for
years giving money to the enemy. We gave money to
the PLO and Yasser Arafat for years and the people
didn’t see a dime of it it is in a Swiss bank account.
It seems that any time we give foreign aid to any one
we end up getting spit in the face because it is never
enough for the Tin Horn Dictator so lets STOP All
Aid to country’s that are the enemy.

This is not honorable and not the way to treat a staunch ally. Democrats will cave on this – if the people complain enough. We have a lot of Jewish citizens which, at least, at one time were Democrats. They need to holler the loudest.

The Jew in America and Israel have little in common. If they did the American Jew would be heading to their homeland to join the fight. Phony Jews and Zionist are not of the blood of Abraham or Ishmael.

The first IDF (Israeli Soldier) to die was an American who went to fight. He was from California and his name was Max Steinberg. Plus, my nephew a kid who grew up in New Jersey joined just last month. So please, before you write anything.. find out the facts..
Oh, and Ishmael???? From Ishmael came the Muslims.. again, get your facts straight!!

El Gato
Guest

I have a high school classmate, from Nebraska, who has done just that. After serving in our military, he moved to Israel. We’re old, so he couldn’t join the IDF.. but some of his children and step children have.

So, some do exactly that, but don’t get much press. Remember there have been American citizens, serving in the IDF, killed in battle during this latest attempt to disable Hamas.

we might at that. The rockets Hamas is using, or has used in the past, are not very sophisticated. The older simpler models could easily reach the valley towns of Brownsville, McAllen. Edinburg, etc. Not to mention Laredo, Del Rio, El Paso (a big city) as well as San Diego California.

I blame Netanyahu for not finishing /in -completing this war. He caved into Kerrys visit for a Twelve hour cease fire. Netinyahu who is out to please Obama and the world.

Michael Scott Scheibner

Michael Scott Scheibner

Robert, I agree with most of what you are saying, although there is no need to become insulting. The whole purpose of the mainstream media is to convince people of what they want them to believe. The propaganda machines are operating at full throttle from all sides of the political agendas. It would be more worthwhile to help everyone see what’s really going on by documentation and true resources, rather than calling them idiots because they have been influenced by all of the propaganda.

Robert Crenshaw
Guest

It is like you are not completing a sentence pertaining of the word insult.
If you are going to make a comment than please explain yourself.
or do not comment! You stated that that I am making insults, but you do not give any examples and you are willing to explain yourself so I can at least rebuttal.

Robert…. I’m not sure if you are intentionally evading the point of my first reply or if you even read it.

Maybe you could try reading a bit more carefully and completely.

Addressing a joint session of Congress on March 12, 1947, President Harry S. Truman asked for $400 million in military and economic assistance for Greece and Turkey and established a doctrine, aptly characterized as the Truman Doctrine, that would guide U.S. diplomacy for the next 40 years. President Truman declared, “It must be the policy of the United States to support free peoples who are resisting attempted subjugation by armed minorities or by outside pressures.” The sanction of aid to Greece and Turkey by a Republican Congress indicated the beginning of a long and enduring bipartisan cold war foreign policy.
