U.S. to cut humanitarian aid per Israel request
The United States is threatening Palestine with cold hard cash. Not cash in military defense or technology, but cash in the form of food for an opressed people.
The United States provides humanitarian aid to Palestinians as long as they agree to remain an occupied territory of Israel. Now that Palestine has gone to the United Nations, America is threatening to cut those funds unless Palestine stops its request.
What a thug move. To paraphrase the threatened actions by America: “If you tell the teacher about the bully beating you up every day, then I will make sure you never eat lunch again.”
Its time to get our role in Israel in perspective. We give Israel $8.5 million dollars EVERY DAY in military aid. EVERY DAY! That is 3.9 Billion dollars a year! Israel uses this money to wall in cities in Palestine, set up roadblocks on every road, and to bomb the country every once in a while as if it were a live military exercise.
The insanity is spread by our media. The Israel Street Journal (Wall Street Journal) reports : Palestinian push for statehood jeopardizes US aid
The Palestinians are at the United Nations because they have tried peace talks for over 50 years now without any success. This is a cry for help and the Wall Street Journal calls it a “push”.
The Palestinians are desperate for the international community to stop the bully that is living in their homes and the Wall Street Journal says they are “jeopardizing their US aid”.
Lets get this story right. Israel controls US foreign policy. Israel is pushing the US to stop Palestine. Israel has every intention of smothering Palestine until they can swallow it up as part of the Israel State. Israel is making America further the choke hold on the Palestinian people.
For the Wall Street Journal to report this crisis in the way they are reporting is insulting to the readers. The US is going to cut humanitarian aid to Palestine in order to pressure them politically into accepting continual beatings by Israel. This whole exercise is showing a new ugliness in American and Israeli foreign policy.
