Israel to get another billion dollars – Time for an Iron Dome for Palestinians

By Alison Weir | Israel-Palestine News | September 24, 2021

The House of Representatives just voted 420-9 in favor of a fast-tracked bill (H.R. 5323) to give Israel an additional $1 billion dollars. The bill is now in the Senate (S.2839), where it is expected to be passed with little or no dissent.

In other words, once again, the vast majority of U.S. politicians from both parties obeyed Israel’s demand that American taxpayers give Israel their hard-earned tax dollars. Keep in mind that this $1 billion is over and above the $3.8 billion – $10.5 million per day – in military aid Israel currently receives from the U.S. Plus, our reps plan to expend an additional $3 billion on behalf of Israel.

This is on top of decades of receiving more U.S. tax money than any other country on earth. On average, Israelis have received 7,000 times more aid from the U.S. per capita than others around the world.

In voting for this latest billion dollars to Israel, members of the Israel lobby were elated at this demonstration of their power. Other Congress people explained that they were supporting the bill because it would ‘save civilian lives’ in Israel. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, for example, said that Iron Dome has “saved thousands of lives.”

Pelosi and the other 408 politicians who voted for the bill didn’t explain why Israel’s numerous billionaires and millionaires shouldn’t pay for this system themselves.

More important, our politicians failed to note that the population whose civilians have been killed in vastly larger numbers are actually Palestinians, including multitudes of children.

The bill that our politicians voted for states that the billion dollars “shall be provided to address emergent requirements in support of Operation Guardian of the Walls.”

The bill leaves out the fact that during this operation Israeli forces killed 260 Gazans, 66 of them children (Palestinian resistance groups killed a total of 13 people in Israel).

The bill also fails to mention that the Israeli operation damaged 52,000 Palestinian homes, totally destroying 2,400 of them, and displaced 120,000 Palestinian men, women, and children. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International both reported that Israel committed war crimes.

Amnesty stated: “There is a horrific pattern emerging of Israel launching airstrikes in Gaza targeting residential buildings and family homes – in some cases entire families were buried beneath the rubble when the building they lived in collapsed.”

Gazan children walk among the rubble of a building destroyed by an airstrike, May 24, 2021, in the Gaza Strip. (John Minchillo, AP )

And this is typical. Previous “wars” between Israel and Gazans (the large majority of whom are from families that were ethnically cleansed by Israel) have been just as one-sided. Over the years, Israeli airstrikes have killed approximately 4,000 Gazans, while Palestinian rockets have killed a total of 49 people in Israel.

In other words, Iron Dome actually costs lives – It allows Israel to attack and oppress Palestinians time after time, without being constrained by concern that such attacks could lead to retaliation that would endanger Israeli citizens.

It is clear that civilians in Gaza are in desperate need of protection.

Therefore, I suggest that our Congressional representatives who say they are so deeply concerned about civilian deaths now support an Iron Dome-like system for Palestinians.

If any of our Congress members truly care about all human beings, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, or nationality, they will immediately introduce such a bill.

Anyone who agrees with this can use the form below to contact their Congress members and ask them to introduce such life-saving legislation.

  1. Hear, hear! I just sent, via the format provided by Alison Weir with my own augmented paragraph, a zinger to my three (1 House, 2 Senate) pol-prostitutes. Lotta good it’ll do, but taking this action/any action, I’ve perhaps reduced my BP by a couple of mmHG points….

    Viva Palestine! God damn the Zioterrorabomination!

  2. “The House of Representatives just voted 420-9 in favor of a fast-tracked bill (H.R. 5323) to give Israel an additional $1 billion dollars. The bill is now in the Senate (S.2839), where it is expected to be passed with little or no dissent”.

    And if American people, living on the streets, ask for financial aid, they are MOCKED for being/wanting “SOCIALISM”………
    BUT, when Israel wants a Billion dollars, the American Parliament, rise as one, and shout, YES…..no problem SIR.

    America’s Politicians have NO SHAME…….They grovel at the feet of Israel……..NO shame at all…..???

      • “passed with little or no dissent”………..America’s politicians look after Israel, far better than they look after the American people? The “DIRT FILES” that Israel holds over the Corrupted Congress must be enormous! There’s no other possibility to explain how or why they submit totally to Israel. What other reason can there be?

        • It all gets to “fear,” Brian. There are many components of “fear,” and the Zionists have cleverly and focusedly mastered the art of instilling it in a country and its people who are similar in start-up (genocide of the indigenous) and colonial mindset and hubris (arrogance, “exceptionalism”-“chosenness.” There is fear of your mentioned “dirt files” that can be assembled on almost anyone; there is fear of losing the next election if one doesn’t submit to the Zionist Lobby and its fellow travelers; there is fear of losing any appropriations for ‘betterment’ of a congresscritter’s district or state; there is fear of being shunned by the other 98 percent or so ‘colleagues’ who have collectively lost sight of the fact that they put the Zioplatform’s national interests ahead of their own country’s national interests, imperatives, compassion, etc. … and on and on.

          I’m not proud to be an American paying my share of “tribute” to an abomination that simply needs to have “put paid” to it…but we’ve lost any opportunity, or the will, to do so. Perhaps one day our own “Hitler” will rise with a nationalistic fever that will attempt to instill patriotism in and restore a semblance of balance among the populace, but I can’t see it happening. We’re too far gone, too subservient, too enveloped in the maelstrom–and, to be sure, too aware that Treasury (always headed by a Zionist) and Wall Street can print “faux money” without accountability to cover the $29,000,000,000,000-and-counting debtload you mention frequently.

          Pity the Palestinians, the ultimate victim. I’m selfishly pleased that I’m not a Palestinian, but then again we’re all Palestinians now.

          • Thanks for that summary. If you ever read John Perkins book, “Confessions of an Economic Hitman” you’ll recognise the pattern of drawing South American(particularly)countries into unserviceable debt, and then hand picking whatever assets of that country, that you want in debt payment.
            This is exactly what is happening to the USA(using the Bull S***) “Modern Monetary Theory” to justify it.. The yearly interest alone on that debt is staggering(and flows to the Rothschild’s International Banking system(NOT THE AMERICAN TREASURY(Run by Guess Who?)
            “When we have squeezed everything we can out of the USA, it can dry up and blow away”….NUT JOB YAHU…..
            And your politicians still continue to feed the Beast….!!
