Why are we paying for their defense????
Because they shared with us secrets that saved thousands of American lives after 9/11 when AlQuaeda was feeling their oats and were planning to hit oh I. think it was the Sears bldg. in Chicago, that had an average popula/ion of 30,000+ on any given business day, which nuclear power plants were cell targets a couple of massive dams, cells targeting power grids that would put everyone in some large hospitals on the grid which would kill anyone on life support, and a few other intelligence lookouts, you know the regular stuff.

You never, never kick loyal friends square in the balls like the Demonrats do. The next time their intelligence can save hundred thousands of American lives, I hope you will consider giving the brave Israeli the French, British and other foreign allies some slack. We'd be toast if we didn't have friends who have sacrificed lives to help us intelligently speaking.

I'll be glad when the leftist little hissing fest has burnt itself out and good Democrats come out of hiding to help Trump rebuild what AOC and her little racist hater gang leaves us after routing the Constitution with that Trojan Horse of a spending bill buries our freedoms and civil rights as in one person one vote etc. that is sleighted for passage on 9/27/21. Please make sure it goes out in the trash can or brush up on your Chinese.

To those who are sick of Maxine and her stalking paramilitary flunkies, Vote Republican but make sure the election precincts start requiring iris scans at the polls and cut the mail-ins on national elections.

And may God bless America as he blessed generations of free American people who trusted in him. And remember our freedom fighters in your prayers and allies who sacrificed for us as we sacrificed for them.

LOL

His son-in-law being Jewish is a reflection on Ivanka, not Donald. As far as morality, did you vote for the father of 5 with 3 wives on whom he cheated?

Given the alternative, I sure did. I didn't condone many of the things Trump did in his personal life, but his political decisions were good for the country. Hillary was not only immoral, but her politics are detrimental as is Joe's.

You cited his son-in-law being Jewish as evidence he is pro-Israel. That's absurd given Ivanka picked Jared. Donald did not.

As far as not condoning his immorality, you supported him.

Jared served Trump as his senior advisor. Seems as though he has no contempt for Jewish people.

Yes, I supported Trump despite some of his personality flaws. I am a mature, pragmatic adult who is capable of separating immaterial antics from utilitarian actions. Sadly, many anti-Trump folks don't fall into this category. He sent out mean tweets was enough to change their elementary minds. Take note of almost every anti-Trump post on this board. They refer to him as the orange blob, etc. Rarely is there a post of substance regarding his policies, because frankly, they were very good for the country. Childish antics by childish non-thinkers. Conversely, any smooth-talking Democrat that promises free stuff and lambasts the "rich" can gain the average Democrat's support. It is part and parcel of the dumbing down of the electorate.

This thread has gotten off course. It is about the Squad and the funding of the Iron Dome.

The primary reason we have to help pay for Israel's defense is because we keep arming and funding terrorist states like Iran, ISIS, ISIS-K, and the Taliban. Obama gave Iran $152 billion. Obama gave ISIS arms and helped train their terrorists.

Biden just got thru arming Iran and the Taliban when he abandoned $85 billion in arms, nightvision scopes and goggles, tanks, HumVees, Blackhawk Helicopters, large and small arms....ammo, food, some of which went straight to Iran and is going to be used against Israel and our troops.

Do you think Biden reimbursed himself as he did with the Ukranians using his credentials as VPOTUS to procure about 30% of the 3.5 billion in foreign aid back then? Something tells me that Leopards do not change their spots, and when you're talking in terms of billions that is one heck of a way to buy the next election; rinse, repeat. I figure from the video that went viral on you tube 3 years ago that Biden's extortion rate was 30% of the taxpayer funded ripoff with Biden taking 50% with his 50% from family dittos using his political titles to get no participation requirement jobs on company board memberships with favored foreign businesses like Ukranian Burisma's generous package with son Hunter. I understand from rumor that a Pelosi son got a similar endowment thanks to mommie dearest the Hoise Speaker. Please tell me that it is not true and that Haiti is not getting a simular endowment for emptying their prisons with Haitian immigrants with secrets to keep from winding up on Biden's enemy the State of Texas who isn't accepting Biden's idea of reciprocity of broomhandling his political rivals in the you know where like Mafia mom Pelosi when she wants taxpayers to pay for gold pens for her pals for fucking her political rival with two or three impeachment indignities and smirking ear to ear whilst tearing up the Houses' official copy of a State of the Union address she'd like to assassinate the character of a rival with since the lying cheating impeachments got flubbed because they were 100% lies with Hillary Clinton ememy files poised to kill the jobs of an army of FBI agents unable to proyect themselves from rogue Demonrat women skilled in vengeance, hate and secret deep staye meetings to dream up oh say stuff like the Steele Dossier that originated in the Clinton War Room some time back. Just sayin...

WASHINGTON – The US House of Representatives on Thursday approved a stand-alone bill to provide Israel with $1 billion for replenishing the Iron Dome missile-defense system, following two days of contentious debate within the Democratic Party. The vote passed with an overwhelming 420-9 majority, with two Democrats, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Hank Johnson, effectively abstaining by voting “present.”

Eight Democrats — Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Cori Bush, Andre Carson, Marie Newman, Jesus Garcia, Raul Grivalva — and one Republican, Rep. Tom Massie, voted against.

The bill is now headed to the Senate, which will need to approve it as well.

Far-Left Democrats Force Funds for Israel’s Iron Dome Out of Funding Bill

21 Sep 2021 ~~ By Jacob Bliss
The far-left Democrats forced out provisions to fund Israel’s Iron Dome from the continuing resolution (CR) that would keep the government funded and raise the debt ceiling, according to reports.
According to Army Technology, “Iron Dome provides defence[sic] against short-range missiles and rockets which pose a threat to the civilian population,” such as those fired from Gaza earlier this year.
Due to there not being enough votes to pass the CR as a result of pushback from far-left Democrats, a Politico reporter claimed that House Democrats were forced to remove the Iron Dome provisions to pass the measure.
Before the provisions were taken out, reports confirmed that far-left Democrats told the Democrat leadership they would not vote for the bill if it included the $1 billion funding for the Iron Dome, which caused the Rules Committee to go into recess.
The CR has been revised with the Iron Dome provision taken out.
The far-left members leading this effort have been Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) cannot have any opposition in her party if she hopes to pass anything due to her thin majority in the House.
Pelosi has already been facing opposition from the Republicans, who have said they will not vote from the CR due to the provision to raise the debt ceiling in the bill.
Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), the head of the far-left Congressional Progressive Caucus, will reportedly meet with Pelosi on Tuesday.
There was funding in the bill to replace the missiles used from the Iron Done in May from the Hamas attack on the Jewish state. Bloomberg reported the Defense Department asked in a classified supplemental request of $1 billion.

Comment:
Israel was totally abandoned by the USA the very moment that the Progressive Marxist/DSA Democrat Leftist coup d' etat by against President Trump succeeded.
It's truly a pity that so many Jews in America are proud Democrats the antithesis of the State of Israeli. Unfortunately these are the same Jews who are so far Left that they're now Holocaust Deniers.
The PM/DSA Democrat Left Party bosses are enemies of America, Christianity. and now they’re anti-Semites too.
The “Enemy Within” Is far more dangerous to us then our external enemies.
We must defeat the enemy within. And fast!
US congress passes bill for 1 billion Iron Dome funding :
Where do you stand?

I have opposing viewpoints about this particular issue.

1. Why is Israel’s military budget unable to cover their own defense costs?

2. Israel is pro-United States overall and that is important both short-term and long-term.

3. When a country has an ally, it’s good to help them economically when we can, but how do we justify sending 1 billion when we look at our horrendous border conditions and numerous growing tent populations?

4. If the US is considered to be a “parent figure” to Israel, by all means send the money. I am under the impression, however, that we are equal in status, so good “friends” make sure all parties are doing their best and not slacking in any measure - which includes not being dependent upon the other economically.

The comment and description are truly mostly right wing BS and misconstrued to a large degree. Of course that money that was included at the last minute should never leave our shores. Simple as that.

Read my op for a better understanding ..... if we have money for this kind of BS we have money for Medicare for All Insurance, college money for our children and hiring more people BACK into the IRS to enforce tax regulations.

Why are you soooooooo stupid? They test and improve our military equipment in real conflicts.

So we arm the Arabs and we arm the Israelis.....and weapons manufactures make money hand over fist....and the politicians get kick-backs for causing unrest in the Middle-East.

Speak not of what you know not.

Biden is not a Nazi, never has been.

Why so many of you prefer an Authoritarian Dictatorship, as attempted by the Republicans for the past 5 years, and continue to speak of Israel in the same breath?

Israel is a Democracy. It had to take the best that was being offered it by the Trump Administration, but becoming a Dictatorship would not have been Israel's wish for the US.

Israel has survived the Arab States war on it, Iran's war on it, the endless lies about it.

It will survive for now without this budget until it can be properly worded out in the future, or borrowed from any other country.

Everyone, stop turning this into a Republicans and Democrats, this and that.

The Far left, Omar et al, does not represent the Democratic party, no matter how many short victories against Israel they do achieve.
Not a Nazi? He is when it comes to money. He has a lot of brain dead followers who are okay with his shifting a billion dollars from taxpayers pockets by way of extorting recipients of congress approved foreign aid money into his personal holdings he extorted out of recipients using the threat of taking all of it away with his office of Vice President's say so. That is forbidden by the Constitution which disallows office holders in all branches of the government from bribery, extortion and theft of the peoples' assets. 3 years ago a video went viral of Biden bragging about how he used a threat to extort the Ukraine of one billion in cash to be delivered to Air Force 2, also courteous the American people's taxes. Id like to have been a fly on the wall when he sold the borders to illegal drug and child sex merchants met his price to sell out American children so he could be rich and powerful. Next thing you know the greedbag will grant pardons to those demons who enslave poor children but give him 30% of their blood money. The deep state made a huge mistake running a rogue election so the worst people can execute socialistic decisions and do away with elections altogether.

Nothing but a load of crap. But it is your crap.
The scatological fingerpainting department is in the basement at USMB in the FZ. Some of the threads will even allow you to suck the residue from your thumb painting efforts. Up here that is disallowed for humane and civility reasons. Plz comply. Thx.

More lies and ignorance.. ISIS is a result of the war in Iraq.. Obama didn't arm them.

That was not my point. In actuality, I strongly support Israeli independence, free from attack of her neighbors and always have. My point is, they have a good economy. They have manufacturing capability. They can pay their way. I think we should sell them literally anything they want to buy, but they should buy it with their citizens' money, not my money.

I agree. But, we have been following Israel's plan.
