Bill to give Israel billions of dollars passes House, now on to Senate

House appropriations chair Barbara Lee (D-CA) speaks before the House of Representatives on June 28, 2021. Lee said she was “proud” of H.R.4373, which she sponsored, and noted that it included funding for our “ally” Israel. AIPAC thanked her for working “to include key pro-Israel provisions in the bill.”

A bill that would expend over $6.4 billion on behalf of Israel, which was advanced earlier by a House committee, has now been passed by the whole House of Representatives. The bill will next be taken up by the Senate.

The bill was passed on July 28th, in the midst of an Israeli killing spree in which Israeli soldiers shot dead four unarmed Palestinian civilians, including an 11-year-old, a teen, and a 20-year-old attending the funeral.

The day before the House vote, Human Rights Watch had issued a report documenting “apparent war crimes” by Israel in its May attack on Gazans.

Jewish News Syndicate (JNS) reports that the bill, “which was advised by numerous pro-Israel organizations, includes $3.3 billion in security assistance to Israel as one of its key provisions,” and includes an additional $3.13 billion on items “relevant to Israel” – In other words, items that are funded because they benefit Israel. The bill is H.R.4373 – Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2022.

Pro-Israel organizations AIPAC, the Democratic Majority for Israel, and J Street all praised the pro-Israel provisions.

AIPAC issued a celebratory press release that thanked specific Congress members:

“We appreciate the efforts of several members who worked to include key pro-Israel provisions in the bill. In particular, we thank the leadership of State and Foreign Operations Chair Barbara Lee (D-CA), State and Foreign Operations Ranking Member Hal Rogers (R-KY), House Appropriations Chair Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) and House Appropriations Ranking Member Kay Granger (R-TX). In addition, Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), Lois Frankel (D-FL), Norma Torres (D-CA), Grace Meng (D-NY), Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) and Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) all made important contributions throughout the appropriations process.

Only three members voted in opposition to the Israel funding: Reps. Cori Bush, D-Mo., Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. (Republican members voted against the bill because of provisions unrelated to Israel, such as abortion and climate change, while explaining that they were in favor of the money to Israel.)

Another bill (H.R.4432) that would give Israel an additional half billion dollars, which was advanced earlier by a different House Committee, has not yet gone to the House floor. The funding to Israel is expected to pass easily.

If both bills are passed and signed into law by President Joe Biden, a total of approximately $20 million per day of Americans’ tax money will be expended on behalf of Israel (part of the money in direct aid; part of it on items because they benefit Israel).

Israel has received more US aid than any other country on earth – on average, 7,000 times more per capita – thanks to the Israel lobby. Experts say that Israel is not a U.S. ally and has often caused the U.S. profound harm.

  1. Unbelievable!……Free money for Israel continues to flow, like the Mississippi River, while American people are increasingly living on the streets.
    “Socialism” for Americans = BAD
    “Socialism” for Israel = GOOD

    And, don’t forget, all that money for Israel comes from TAXES paid by hard working American people, while America’s “1%” evade income tax by using Tax Havens.(And America’s Politicians are Bloated on DONATIONS from America’s “1%”…..

    When are the American people going to wake up and recognise what is happening to THEM, while Israel “Sucks their Blood”, like parasites???

  4. Great job America! Now we have more wars, more terrorism, more ethnic cleansing, and more criminal activity. Has it ever occurred to you morons in Congress that Israel has never defined its borders and is constantly stealing land and making the whole region unstable? Of course, you do, but, you still give this giant parasite more money. You act like a fiefdom of the state of Israel.

    • “fiefdom” = good descriptor. My best e-correspondent has taken to referring to the USA’s lavishing of never-ending floods of money, other materiel, and diplomatic carte blanche to the Terror Monster not as “aid” or “foreign assistance” but as “tribute” — as in “tribute payments of obeisance from a vassal state to its overlord.” And this debacle is bounded, on all sides, by a dangerous psychosis that has, improbably and ominously, enveloped and is consuming Zionism and us along with it with no thought or resolve toward exposing, offering therapy, and putting paid to it. How crazy is that?

      The Palestinians, of course, are always at Ground Zero. Viva Palestine!

      • When America’s “working Tax Payers” wake up to the fact that it is THEM who are paying Israel’s Bills, they might revolt against this utter theft of their hard earned money(The Oligarchs don’t care because, they use Tax Havens to AVOID THEIR OBLIGATIONS to the American Treasury).

        But somehow, the American people are totally unaware that THEY are paying ISRAEL’S BILLS……..

        How long will it be, before they WAKE UP?

        • They are unaware of Israel’s crimes because the ‘Media,’ is in the hands of the perpetrators. 98% of all Media in America is Zionist garbage!

  5. [POLICY HERE IS – AMERICA- KILL AS MANY PALESTINIANS AS YOU CAN AND WANT AND WE WILL REWARD YOU WITH MORE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION AND MORE MILLIONS OF FUNDING.

    ISRAEL: WE WILL CONTINUE MASSACERING PALESTINIANS AND DESTROYING GAZA AND YOU AMERICANS MUST CONTINUE TO PAY FOR IT AS WE ARE YOUR BOSOM PALS AND GREAT ALLY SHARING YOUR ‘VALUES’]

    THEIR JOINT VALUES IS MASS MURDER OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLE WITH IMPUNITY AND GIVE THEIR RESPECTIVE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPEX HUGE PROFITS AND KEEP THE ENDLESS WARS AND CONFLICTS GOING.

    AMERICA IS A TRAGEDY, AND HAS BEEN OCCUPIED FOR DECADES BY JEWS, ZIONISM AND ISRAEL ITSELF. AMERICA HAS NOT BEEN A DEMOCRACY AT ALL, THAT HAS BEEN A FARCE AS IT HAS BEEN RULED BY A JEWISH/ZIONIST DEEP STATE SHADOW GOVERNMENT CONTROLLED BY TEL AVIV AND LONDON’S JEWISH ROTHSHCHILD BANKSTERS.

    WHEN I SPEAK OF AMERICA, I ONLY SEE IT AS ONE OF ISRAEL’S MANY OCCUPIED MILITARY COLONIES USED TO BANKROLE ALL OF ISRAEL’S MILITARISM AND ESPIONAGE AROUND THE WORLD WITH IMPUNITY. 99.999% OF CONGRESS AND SENATE ARE JEWISH AS ARE THE SUPREME COURT JUDGES, ALL TOP JUDICIARY, TOP MILITARY BRASS, INTELLIGENCE SERVICES, POLICE, AND ACADEMIA, EDUCATION, HEALTH DPEARTMENTS, ENTERTAINMENT, MEDIA, BANKS AND CORPORATIONS RUN BY THE VILE ODIOUS CORRUPT JEWISH MAFIA.
