If Americans Only Knew
(Excerpts followed by short video)
Despite tens of millions of Americans out of work, all impacted by coronavirus cutbacks, experts expect that Israel will get its full massive aid package, $10.5 million per day. An Administration official says that Israelis don’t have to worry “even if there is a depression”… and even though the aid is damaging to American.

Israel’s Jerusalem Post newspaper reports that “nearly all the experts” it consulted believe that Israel will get at least $3.8 billion from the U.S. in the coming year despite economic devastation to the U.S. economy caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The Jewish newspaper notes that the aid is expected even though “American economic activity has declined in recent weeks at a rate not seen since the Great Depression.”
“Whatever happens next, the events of the past six weeks will scar the U.S. economy well into the 2030s, if not beyond,” Barron’s predicts. “Tens of millions of Americans are already paying the price, and they will continue to do so for a long time.”
Nevertheless, the Jerusalem Post reports, a “Trump administration source” said that Israel would not need to worry about getting the money “even if there is a depression” in the U.S.
For decades Israel has received more U.S. tax money than any other country – on average, about 7,000 times more per capita than to others around the world.
The aid package works out to $7,230 per minute to Israel, and equals about $23,000 per each Jewish Israeli family of four.
Under the current bill before Congress, the $38 billion over the next 10 years would be a ‘floor’ rather than a ‘ceiling,’ meaning that aid could increase, as it almost always has in the past.
Israel and its advocates often claim that Israel is America’s “aircraft carrier” in the Middle East. However, it is actually American soldiers who have fought and died for Israel through the years.
Aid to Israel is also problematic for other reasons. Israel has a long record of human rights violations, as documented by Human Rights Watch, the Red Cross, Christian Aid, Amnesty International, Oxfam, and numerous other humanitarian agencies.
Israel has also used U.S. aid in ways that violate U.S. laws.
For these reasons, providing Israel with massive amounts of money and weaponry is antithetical to most Americans’ moral and ethical principles.
In addition, such aid creates dangerous hostility to the U.S. Bin Laden, for example, listed U.S. support for Israeli crimes as one of the major reasons for his opposition to the United States.
Israel is not an American ally. Israel has a history of spying on the U.S, stealing American technology, and involving Americans in wars on its behalf.
In addition, Israel tried to sink a U.S. Navy ship in an action that four-star Admiral Thomas Moorer called “an act of war against the United States.”
Admiral Moorer reported on his commission’s investigation into the attack in a public briefing on Capitol Hill in 2003, but almost no U.S. media reported the findings.
Aid to Israel is largely driven by the powerful and pervasive pro-Israel lobby in the U.S., which influences both major parties.
Israeli media report that there is an additional way that Israelis will likely obtain money from the U.S. during the COVID-19 crisis. Israel’s leading financial daily reports: “Israeli Companies Can Cash In On $10 Million Check from Trump.”
At a time when more and more Americans are out of work, and almost everyone else is facing cutbacks, giving Israel its full $3.8 billion package may cause concern.
However, given that U.S. media often fail to report on U.S. aid to Israel, the money may sneak through, once again, with most Americans having no idea how much of their tax money was just given away.
The Council for the National Interest has launched a petition that over a thousand people have signed so far: Stop the $3.8 Billion to Israel.
LD : Americans suffer extreme hardship under the Covid-19 lockdown, with almost 39 MILLION AMERICANS having lost their jobs in the last nine weeks. And yet, believe it or not, the state of Israel still demands an obscene $10.5 MILLION PER DAY from the American taxpayer! How much longer are these bloodsucking vampires going to prey on America’s longsuffering masses?
