Senate Democrats Push To Triple Israel's Iron-Dome Aid To $576 Million

Tyler Durden's picture


U.S. Senate Democrats included $225 million for Israel's Iron Dome rocket interception system in an emergency funding bill on Tuesday, which, as Bloomberg reports, in addition to the $351 million that’s already under discussion for Iron Dome in fiscal 2015 would bring the potential new funding to $576 million, compared with the $176 million currently requested by the Pentagon. "Iron Dome has saved countless Israeli lives," Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in a letter dated yesterday and while the Iron Dome system is built by Haifa-based Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd, an agreement with Israel calls for more than half the funds the Pentagon provides for Iron Dome to be spent in the U.S..


As Reuters reports,

U.S. Senate Democrats included $225 million for Israel's Iron Dome rocket interception system in an emergency funding bill on Tuesday that also cut $1 billion from President Barack Obama's request for $3.7 billion to deal with thousands of undocumented child immigrants.


"Israel is an essential American ally and needs these assets to defend itself," said Maryland Democratic Senator Barbara Mikulski, chairwoman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, in a statement.




U.S. lawmakers tend to be heavily pro-Israel. However, the fate of the $225 million - and other funding in the legislation - is uncertain in the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives, where there is stiff opposition to an increase in spending tied to the Democratic president's request.

This almost triples the aid for Israel (as Bloomberg reports),

The money -- which would be included in an emergency spending bill directed mostly at child-migration issues on the U.S.-Mexico border -- would be in addition to the $351 million that’s already under discussion for Iron Dome in fiscal 2015. It would bring the potential new funding to $576 million, compared with the $176 million requested by the Pentagon for the year that begins Oct. 1.


The added $225 million for the current fiscal year would be used “to accelerate production of Iron Dome components in Israel to maintain adequate stockpiles,” Hagel said in the letter.

“Iron Dome has saved countless Israeli lives,” Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in a letter dated yesterday

An agreement with Israel calls for more than half the funds the Pentagon provides for Iron Dome to be spent in the U.S.

We can almost hear the teleprompter now that Republicans (should they block this spending) would have the blood of dead Israeli children on their hands...

What the US really needs is to get rid of people like Babs Mukulski, Polish Jewish turned catholic, who are more closely allied with their zionist brethren than the USA.

yep...the spend 1/2 in America part is the secret.   I work with government contracts of this nature.  What this means is 250 million will be funneled to inside organizations (friends and family of Washington elite and most certainly Obama supporters) who will perform a service for shares of the 250 mill, but the service they provide will have a market value of about 20% what they're getting paid.   THe 80% will make the uber wealthy, more wealthy, and a good percentage will get backflushed into democratic...and to a lesser extent Republican, campain funds.

...and that's the way the machine works.

If I was Israel, I think this would be an opportune time to start "expanding their options" in terms of financial and military support.  Maybe put a hand out to the Russians.  Though they'd probably slap it away, you never know these days.  Putin wants influence and that would be a LOT of influence right there.  More to the point, it would grease the skids to get their military aid request to DC through.  It wouldn't be $500MM any more, it would be billions, and RIGHT FREAKING NOW.

You realize that we already give Israel $3.1 BILLION tax dollars every single year for military aid RIGHT FREAKING NOW. This $500M U.S. tax dollars are extra and specifically for the Iron Dome system. I think we still give them $10M U.S. tax dollars every year to for resettlement aid - cash that goes to pay for plane tickets, free housing and other free shit for the chosen people immigrating to Israel.

How do you know this?

Moreover Hezbellolah and the West Bank remain quiescent.

If you're gonna nail a 777 over Ukraine it better not be for an incursion into Gaza.

Netanyahu seems a lot like Putin to me...almost like someone else is giving the orders here and is "lashing out."

What happens if there is a counter offensive as with Ukraine against Russia?

"Wars are only won by the bigger, more powerful and more brutal"?

That sure wasn't true in World War II.

Hamas is a terrorist organization. Kerry can't even speak to them directly. I can't think of a single set of proposals he could possibly be showing up with there...especially after the open mike caught him complaining about "some precision."

I don't think it takes a rocket scientist to say "this is diplomacy that makes the situation worse not better."

Good luck calling up the reserves in the USA. "They've been deployed to the border with Mexico."

Someone could start seeking out some well paid volunteers.

Of course the Governors of the 50 States might have to agree to that first.

No, Jackagain's linked video is one long stream of horse shit.

It starts out implying that the creation of Israel - somehow - was the inevitable and correct response to the 'fact' of the holocaust (an atrocity committed on another continent by a completely different set of perpetrators), rather than the result of scheming and political manoeuvring by powerful interests stretching back at least two centuries... all perfectly well documented and undisputed by anyone who has spent a few hours researching the matter.

Then by means of the usual Zionist 'us vs the goyim' conflation of the individual Palestinians who had their land stolen, with 'the Arabs' who 'initiated' various wars with Israel, it re-imagines Israel's successive landgrabs from Palestinians as being the unintended results of their own aggression... when it is undisputed fact that zionist leaders like Ben Gurion absolutely intended - even before the creation of Israel - to grab all the land from the indigent Palestinians. Of course it ignores all the land grabbing that has happened ever since the last Arab-Israeli war, or the unending encroachments between the wars, for that matter.

From there on, it's just the usual 'Jews == civilisation, Muslims == savage misogynist killers', 'Jews are victims', 'Jews are merciful, and only defending themselves' myths that we are bombarded with day by day by our captured media. Oh, and the lie that Israel is a democracy. If it were a democracy, the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza (whose pathetically few scraps of land are under the absolute control of Israel) would vote in Israel's national elections. As it is, Israel can (at best) be described as an apartheid state.

So fuck off, 'Jackagain', with your Hasbara propaganda. Change your avatar to the symbol of a shekel, you lying Israel-firster.

The US media  - from Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levine to Fox News and NBC to all of corporate media - is a virtual tsunami of Israeli propaganda; the most extensive and expensive program perhaps in history…rewriting the history of Palestine, endlessly pleading Israel’s victim status and its profound innocence, integrity and vital partnership for the US.

But there is another side, the truthful side.

BATR writes today on Market Oracle in “Zionist Israel an International Pariah”:

“Gaza has become a slaughter zone for the eradication of Palestinians with the most advanced military technology that Israel possesses….Israel is wedded to an expansionist political objective. Extending settlements prevent any permanent settlement agreement.

“With the full blown invasion of Gaza, the IDF proves once again that annihilation and ethnic cleansing is the cornerstone of Israeli imperium. For a perspective on the Gaza campaign that you will not hear in the controlled Zionist media, view Gaza is an Engineered Flashpoint for WW3 video. Then if you have the courage to face the truth, Zionist Terror in Gaza - Free Gaza and Free the World, YouTube is a must watch.

“The notion that the government of Israel has some special right to be an apartheid state, only for Zionists, is the source of perpetual war. Strip away the heretical religious entitlements that only serves to rationalize the bogus legitimacy of a rogue regime, and what you have left is an aggressor tribe of Khazarian outlaws, who allege to be Jewish when it is politically expedient. This charade keeps the naive and uninformed Christian-Zionists pouring out their support for the high cost of claiming: CHOSEN

“Are Zionists the only people who have a right for self-defense? The iron dome that knocks down, the projectiles based on the Chinese "Weishi-2" or WS-2 rockets is effective in stopping these primitive missiles. "The al-Qassam brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, boasts on its website that it can make its own version of the M-302 – named the R-160 after one of its leaders, Abdel Rantisi, who was killed last decade." Contrast these weapons with Operation Samson: Israel's Deployment of Nuclear Missiles on Subs from Germany

Look at Ukraine today, ethnic cleansing of Russians paid for by Jewish money. They fear the orthodox Catholics, because their faith hasn't been co-opted as with the Latin Catholics and Protestant Christians.

Remembering the Deir Yassin Massacre 

April 09, 1948

“On April 09, 1948, members of the underground Jewish terrorist group, the Irgun, led by Menachem Begin, who was to become the Israeli prime minister in 1977, entered the peaceful Arab village of Deir Yassin, massacred 250 men, women, children and the elderly, and stuffed many of the bodies down wells. There were also reports of rapes and mutilations. The Irgun was joined by the Jewish terrorist group, the Stern Gang, led by Yitzhak Shamir, who subsequently succeeded Begin as prime minister of Israel in the early '80s, and also by the Haganah, the militia under the control of David Ben Gurion. The Irgun, the Stern Gang and the Haganah later joined to form the Israeli Defense Force. Their tactics have not changed.

The massacre at Deir Yassin was widely publicized by the terrorists and the numerous heaped corpses displayed to the media. During and after the attack on the village, members of these armed groups fired indiscriminately, blew up homes with their inhabitants still inside, executed men, women, and children, firing at close range, and looted whatever came to hand. The surviving villagers were loaded on trucks and paraded in a march through the main streets of Jerusalem.

In Jaffa, which was at the time 98 percent Arab, as well as in other Arab communities, speaker trucks drove through the streets warning the population to flee and threatening another Deir Yassin. Begin said at the time, "We created terror among the Arabs and all the villages around. In one blow, we changed the strategic situation."

This massacre marked the beginning of the depopulation of over 400 towns and villages, and the exile of more than 700,000 Palestinians.”

"We will expel the Arabs and take their place. In each attack a decisive blow should be struck resulting in the destruction of homes and the expulsion of the population." David Ben Gurion: Prime Minister of Israel 1949 -1954 / 1955 - 1963 - Letters to his son, 1937

Everyone realises, I assume, that it's a bible prophesy that Jews must return to their homeland of Israel to herald the second coming of christ.

This shit is happening because of some ancient ramblings of bronze age nuts.

Lap it up people, all of you who call yourselves christians must support what Israel is doing. They can't return to their homeland unless they displace Palestinians but the displaced Palestinians are getting pissed off so lob rockets on Israel. So of course Israel must defend itself from the rockets so you should also support their right to defend themselves in order that the prophesy comes true. In fact, real christians should be donating money to the jews to assist them in defending themselves. Neither does the bible state that the jews must ask nicely for their land back. So strictly speaking all you christians should be over their killing palestian men, women and children and clearing the way for the worlds jews.

Don't beat around the bush people and mince words and try and side step the realtiy of the situation. The book you carry around in your back pocket and quote from obsessively and claim is the bastion of morality is itself predicting this shit MUST HAPPEN before christ returns. You should all be dropping what you're doing and assisting the jews if you really want to see christs return. Actions, not words, get to it christians. This is the irony of christian belief though, you sort of do believe but you don't, especially if it means you miss your nightly pilates routine. The great irony is that jews think everyone else is sub standard, in fact unworthy. Oh the irony of all this shit.

This is the sick reality of the current situation. 

OK, spin away, and tell me this is not actually what the bible predicts.

PS. All those who don't actually believe in a religious god and holy books but do believe god is some sort of shining ball of energy in another dimension needn't respond.What you guys profess is vastly more believable than a god embroiled in centuries of wars in the birth place of a man who claimed to be the son of god. Although, if god is a shining ball of energy in another dimension that would be a little amusing because I'm not sure how we would relate to a shining ball of energy in the afterlife. I guess, if nothing else, it'd make a good reading light. Note to self, take plenty of books.

"DNA research reveals that well over 95% of the population of the Israel are NOT in fact Jews by blood, confirming earlier research."

This, according to a study by Dr. Eran Elhaik (Israeli Jew) and associates at the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Reported on Market Oracle last week by editor Nadeem Walayat and published by the Oxford University Press on behalf of the Society of Molecular Biology and Evolution, Dr. Elhlaik “found that the European Jewish genome is a mosaic of ancestries which rise primarily out of the European Khazars."

What a load of bloody bollocks. What DNA profile determines that someone is Jewish? How do you establish the baseline, the control?

“Elhaik’s research confirms earlier DNA studies, especially the work of Dr. Ariella Oppenheim of Hebrew University, who likewise found, in 2001, that the “Jews” came from the Khazars rather than the Israelites. Dr. Oppenheim even found that some of the Palestinians have the chromosomes proving they are “Cohen,” related to the ancient Israelites who worked in the Synagogue and Temple.” – Nadeem Walayat

“Another DNA study co-authored by Martin Richards, at the University of Huddersfield in England confirms the same of Ashkenazi Jews that destroys the myth of European Jews being descendants of people who left the Middle East 2,000 years ago, but instead over 80% of whom are Jewish converts.”

I can see it now, not only will humans argue about interpretations of statements made in the bible, now we'll be arguing about interpretations of DNA mapping of jews and even the moraility of selecting people for Israel based on genes. Mate, you would make Hitler proud in a sort of perverse way. He'd at least appreciate your methods, not so much your selection criteria.

My goodness gracious me, we humans are a complicated bunch. But hey, once we've genetically profiled all Isralites and determined which ones are really jews, THEN christ will return. Fuck me, this whole prophesy is getting more complicated by the day.

Yes. You are right. The State of Israel is based on racism. It’s a political state – for Jews only. It's too bad that the Israelis have identified themselves as Jews by bloodline but apparently aren't Jews.

An Israeli survey conducted found [5] that most Israeli Jews support the establishment of an apartheid regime in Israel if it formally annexes the West Bank and a majority explicitly favor systematic discrimination [6] against Israeli Arabs.

As to racist Israel, after receiving a “flood” of about 60,000 African refugees over the past seven years, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared the influx “a threat to the country’s security and Jewish character, and shipped them back to Sudan and Eritrea as fences were erected and tougher laws to imprison illegal aliens for three years were imposed. In the first six months of 2013 only 34 Africans crossed the border, coming in, compared to 9,570 in 2012.

According to John Glaser writing on Israel and Racism on August 7, 2013:

Shimon Gapso, an Israeli mayor of Upper Nazareth, recently said [1] that Upper Nazareth is a Jewish city and “will be Jewish forever.” …

Now, he has written an Op-Ed [3] in the Haaretz newspaper to answer his detractors…

Yes — I’m not afraid to say it out loud, to write it and add my signature, or declare it in front of the cameras: Upper Nazareth is a Jewish city and it’s important that it remains so. If that makes me a racist, then I’m a proud offshoot of a glorious dynasty of “racists” that started with the “Covenant of the Pieces” [that God made with Abraham, recounted in Genesis 15:1–15] and the explicitly racist promise: “To your seed I have given this land” [Genesis 15:38].

When the Jewish people were about to return to their homeland after a long journey from slavery in Egypt, where they were enslaved for racist reasons, the God of Israel told Moses how to act upon conquering the land: he must cleanse the land of its current inhabitants…[Numbers 33:55–56]. …

Gapso then takes to sarcasm regarding Israel’s national founding:

Even our racist national anthem ignores the existence of the Arab minority — in other words, the people Ben-Gurion did not manage to expel in the 1948 war. If not for all that “racism,” it’s doubtful we could live here, and doubtful that we could live at all. …
