Bay Area billboards ‘thank’ the US for Israel’s blank check
President Obama Would Rather Kill Palestinians than Feed American Children
By Mohamed Khodr
President Obama, your outrageous acceptance of Israel’s extortion of $3 Billion worth of F-35 fighter planes along with other security and political guarantees for the mere acceptance of a 90 day “freeze” of settlements in the West Bank, which excludes East Jerusalem, is a slap to the honor and dignity of this nation, the sole superpower. That a rogue illegitimate small war crime of a nation can bring this superpower to its knees is proof that our leaders, government, institutions, media, and academia can be bought, sold, and intimidated by a few hundred thousand rich and powerful American Jews.
Pity the American people who ignorantly pay and die for Israel’s wars while believing the lies and fear mongering chants of the Pro Israel criminal cabal that the Muslims and Iran seek to destroy this nation.
“No matter what happens “the Arabs will be blamed….American cowardice – in the face of the immensely powerful Jewish lobby in the US – has produced a situation in which Washington remains supinely silent while Mr. Netanyahu, according to the Israeli paper Yediot Ahronot, threatens to “burn Washington”, should President Bill Clinton attempt to force Israel to accept a 13 per cent withdrawal from occupied Arab land.” –Robert Fisk, The Independent, June 1, 1998
Shockingly, Mr. President, you have no political choice but to accept what Netanyahu dishes out against your person or against this nation having proclaimed that he has the ability to “move” this nation in the direction he sees fit.
Netanyahu during Bill Clinton’s time threatened to “burn Washington” if Clinton continued to press him for small land concessions Israel already agreed to. In total exasperation Clinton said of Netanyahu: “he thinks he is the superpower and we are here to do whatever he requires.”
Clinton is right. No U.S. President (brief exception President Eisenhower) has had the audacity of courage to stand up to Israel. The “special relationship” between Israel and the U.S. is summarized as followes: “Israel Demands, America Caves”
Several American, European, and world leaders have publicly stated that ending Israel’s bloody and inhumane occupation and treatment of millions of Palestinians will go a long way to ending terrorism. But not even the loss of American lives, both civilian and military, due to terrorism is enough to stiffen the cowardly spine of our political leaders.
Since 1948 U.S. Jews and Israel have “threatened”, yes, threatened our national leaders electorally, via withholding campaign donations, or using the media to smear and harass them to ensure Israel’s continuous extortions are met. Mr. Obama,despite your hollow and hypocritical rhetoric that resolving the Israeli Palestinian conflict is in our national interest, Israel has continued to insult and thumb its nose at you which inexplicably you submit to in silence.
No, Mr. President, on Israel your policy thus far has been of “can’t” and no “change”. As long as our government keeps Americans uninformed about Israel’s detriment and high cost to our national interest and deficits, we will continue paying for Israel’s wars and withdrawals.
Everyone now realizes that freeing the Palestinians from Israel’s brutal occupation will undermine the main cause of terrorism and animosity against this nation.
Israel as its custom will never live up to any agreement or withdrawal commitment. It will continue to drag any so called peace process until it completes annexation and ethnic cleansing of all Palestinians. It will continue to demand more tax dollars, more weapons for more wars, and expect our nation to continuously block any criticism of its inhuman policies. How much will it cost the American people for the next 90 days and the succeeding 90 days? If there is ever a peace agreement how much will that cost our nation in debt?
In Israel’s hands F-35 fighter jets, the most modern fighter planes, can only serve one purpose— Kill more Palestinian and Lebanese children. These are killing machines given as a bribe for Israel to meet its International obligations of halting construction of illegal settlements and cooperate in serving its sole benefactor’s national interest in the Middle East and the Muslim world as it continues to fight two wars.
Israel has never given a damn about a single American life, should anyone be so foolish and stupid to believe it cares about an Arab child?
Listen to its racist leaders across the political and religious spectrums who believe that the sole purpose of Gentiles is to serve the interest of Jews or die.
Does our constant caving in to Israel honor our nation, our national interest, our killed soldiers in the region, our Constitution, or we the people of this nation? Let us feed America’s hungry and not feed Israel’s appetite for genocides.
President Obama, your submissiveness to the stronger Netanyahu is of your own making. You are owned by America’s powerful Jewish cabal. You surrounded yourself by appointing U.S. Jews with dual loyalties, primarily to Israel, to every important governmental post. Jews in Congress control the most powerful Committees that deal with foreign affairs, homeland security, and intelligence. Eric Cantor (R-VA), like his congressional tribesman and akin to former speaker of the house Newt Gingrich, met with Netanyahu to assure him that he can count on Congressional allegiance to Israel to thwart any potential presidential policy that Israel rejects.
The funny thing about such an allegiance is that it’s unwarranted given, Mr. Obama, your own deep personal allegiance to Israel and kosher Wall Street.
You would rather send billions of dollars of killing weapons that offensively violate America’s laws than send such money to feed hungry American children blocks from your resident.
Israel has much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
