This news is reported from :- PressTV.
The United States and Israel have signed an agreement under which $429 million of American taxpayers’ money “will be transferred immediately to Israel” to fund its Iron Dome missile system.
” The pentagon says the agreement was signed last week in a bid to “continue support of the production of the Iron Dome weapon system” and provide opportunities for US industry to “receive meaningful co-production opportunities for Iron Dome components.”
On March 4, the US House of Representatives also passed a bill which named Israel a “major strategic partner” of the US and called for the expansion of Washington’s military ties with Tel Aviv.
The legislation, which was passed by a 410 to 1 vote, calls for expanding the delivery of US arms and military technologies to Israel and commits US Congress to increase funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile system.
Last week, some reports said funding for Israel’s missile systems has been cut in US President Barack Obama’s budget for fiscal year 2015.
However, the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which is the most powerful pro-Israel lobby group in the US, told Israeli press that the funding remained intact and that the lobby group will work with Congress to ensure the funding levels remain as high as previous years’.
AIPAC also said that it is not the US President but Congress that decides on the funding levels.
Israel already receives billions of dollars from the US each year. Under an existing 10-year aid agreement between Washington and Tel Aviv signed in 2007, $30 billion of American taxpayers’ money is flowing to Israel.
The US annual military aid to Israel has been elevated from $2.4 billion to $3.1 billion through 2017 under the existing agreement.
Meanwhile, US and Israeli officials have discussed a surge in US military aid to Israel in a new aid package that would extend through 2027.”
And here are just some of the thoughts that followed this news :-
- For America it would be cheaper to move Israel to the US..Most Jews live already there.And Tel Aviv is already ruling the Congress.
- That is the “American” congress. Cutting of 1,5 million families of unemployed americans from unemployment insurance payments and food stamps but having no problem of giving Israel another $429 million on top of the billions send yearly in “development-aide” to Israel…
- Israel is a bottomless pit. No matter how much money, weapons, ill-gotten donations is thrown in this bottomless pit Israel will never feel secure or legitimate. Any and every other country’s progress in the region will throw it into a hysterical existential fit. A perennial parasite for which nothing is enough.
- One might ask:”how will the government pay for this money package?” Well slashing food stamps, denying unemployment benifits to layed off workers. This is treason! Where is the outrage from the democrats? Why can’t we get funding for affordable housing?
- This is why middle easterners hate us!
- US. With that kind of congress (voted only one against?) who needs enemy.
- American economy is all ready destroyed,just watch and see the collapse.Lawmakers in US ignored citizens needs. Problem with infrastructure, problem with healthcare, problem with deficit, problem with railroads, problem with electrical grid, problem with crimes and killings etc. All this will need money nowww, but money is not there, because supporting apartheid, wars, dictators, war lords now they are third world country . US wealthy citizens are already pulling money out of US or buying gold and in some cases getting out with families. Europe and rest of the world should consider, who will replace US in world stage.
- What about giving a few dollars to their own people.
- When are you, the American people, gonna put a stop to this absurdity?
- Our President, Military, Senate and the rest of government is working for Israeli Jews and not for Americans. They are all on the payroll of Israel. And our people are Zombies and under the control of the Trashy tv shows produced by the Jews. We eat junk, we watch junk and we are ruled by bunch of junk politicians/ “Intelligent” service and Military.
- What??? Our People are starving, homeless, dumbed down to zero, infrastructure in tatters, and we’re waging wars all over the world, and now? We Give our AMERICAN TAXPAYER MONEY to a bunch of rabid vampire Blood sucking Zionist JEWS!! WE ARE TRULY DONE!!! Our Congress is no longer ours, they are ALL brought and paid for by the vile scum of the AIPAC Jews!!!
- We have to stop voting for these scumbag Democrats and Republicans…Congress is nothing but a Zionist controlled bordello
- Zionist controls the entire US govt. i strongly believes Israel in the occupied territory is just an extended entity of the US stolen lands.
- Unbelievable: Israel wrecks peace talks, continue stealing land and killing innocent Palestinians and america continues to reward them. Stealing from the American public, the biggest criminals on earth???
- More welfare for the chosen people lol more welfare for the people that think they are special, and are smarter, wiser and better at business then all others. Why would the chosen people, the smartest people, ever have to stoop to taking money from others if they are so great?
- How useless is this iron dome, when thousands of missiles are raining down on the little miserable entity, Israel. They think they are above god these rabid ziodogs!
- and more !!!
