If The USA Were a Good Friend of Israel’s, It Would Make Our Needs THE PRIORITY‏

Ceasefire

IMRA (Independent Media Review and Analysis) has made an interesting comparison of American versus European statements about Hamas. Compare and contrast:

“1….The EU calls on Hamas to immediately put an end to these acts and to renounce violence. All terrorist groups in Gaza must disarm. The EU strongly condemns calls on the civilian population of Gaza to provide themselves as human shields.” EU Council conclusions on the Middle East Peace Process Summary: 22 July 2014, Brussels – Council of the European Union Foreign Affairs “The President stressed the U.S. view that, ultimately, any lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict must ensure the disarmament of terrorist groups and the demilitarization of Gaza.” That’s right: The European Union insists that “All terrorist groups in Gaza must disarm”. Period. But President “we have Israel’s back” Obama see disarming of the terrorists as something that will happen “ultimately” and within the context of a “lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict .” Put in plain English: if those damn Israelis don’t sit down and sign a final status agreement with the Palestinians then as far as President Obama is concerned Hamas can keep its entire armory intact. Take note also that while the EU condemns Hamas for its role in causing Palestinian civilians deaths Mr. Obama is silent on the matter.

Before you claim that America supports Israel financially, I’d like to remind you that you’re wrong. The so-called aid is just a way for the USA to prop up its military industries and dispose of all sorts of surplus supplies. American aid isn’t money. It’s shop in the USA gift certificates. That is good for the ailing American economy, but it’s awful for Israel. It means that instead of being more self-sufficient there are products we don’t produce, which we are capable of producing. And when, which happens frequently, Israeli engineers suggest improvements on the military products, it’s the United States, and not Israel that benefits from those improved items.

Another important fact to note is that the Israeli public is overwhelmingly in favor of finally destroying the Hamas terrorist capabilities. The army’s morale is high, and the public is sick and tired of these ceasefires that just give the terrorists an opportunity to rearm and improve their position. Once and for all, Israelis want a change in basic policy and refuse to be pacified by fancy words and ceremonies. IMRA published a poll showing the numbers.

Sunday, July 27, 2014
Poll: 87%:7% Continue operation, 69%17% Destroy Hamas
Poll: 87%:7% Continue operation, 69%17% Destroy Hamas Dr. Aaron Lerner – IMRA 27 July 2014

regime?

  9. It’s not the USA that is abandoning Israel, it’s that ******* Obama ,member of the Muslim brotherhood that is sworn to destroy Israel.

  10. The only way to negotiate with Palestinuans is from a position of power (upper hand). Otherwise, they will play the bravado game, while hiding behind their women and children. No ceasefire for Gaza without a demilitarized Hamas! Ssy no to Obama’s flaccid foreign policy. Israel is entitled to victory over its most dangerous enemies!

  16. I wish we were providing weapons, finances, air support, ground troops, and naval support. I’m very sorry we’re not. While my government is a shame, I am providing what I can. Israel, you have my heart, my thoughts, my prayers day and night, my support, and my defense at every opportunity. Thankfully, the God we both trust in, is greater than any government or help of man. The God of Israel is a strong tower, a strong fortress! Blessed be His name forever and blessed be His people!

    MENCKEN, H. L. 20th century American writer. “The Jews could be put down very plausibly as the most unpleasant race ever heard of. As commonly encountered they lack any of the qualities that mark the civilized man: courage, dignity, incorruptibility, ease, confidence. They have vanity without pride, voluptuousness without taste, and learning without wisdom. Their fortitude, such as it is, is wasted upon puerile objects, and their charity is mainly a form of display.” (Treatise on the Gods) The fact that what are commonly spoken of as rights are often really privileges is demonstrated in the case of the Jews. They resent bitterly their exclusion from certain hotels, resorts and other places of gathering, and make determined efforts to horn in. But the moment any considerable number of them horns in, the attractions of the place diminish, and the more pushful Jews turn to one where they are still nicht gewuenscht . . . (“not wanted.”) “I am one of the few Goyim who have ever actually tackled the TALMUD. I suppose you now expect me to add that it is a profound and noble work, worthy of hard study by all other GOYIM. Unhappily, my report must differ from this expectation. It seems to me, save for a few bright spots, to be quite indistinguishable from rubbish . . .”

    This prophecy, by Benjamin Franklin, was made in a “CHIT CHAT AROUND THE TABLE DURING INTERMISSION,” at the Philadelphia Constitutional Convention of 1787. This statement was recorded in the dairy of Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, a delegate from South Carolina. “I fully agree with General Washington, that we must protect this young nation from an insidious influence and impenetration. The menace, gentlemen, is the Jews. In whatever country Jews have settled in any great number, they have lowered its moral tone; depreciated its commercial integrity; have segregated themselves and have not been assimilated; have sneered at and tried to undermine the Christian religion upon which that nation is founded, by objecting to its restrictions; have built up a state within the state; and when opposed have tried to strangle that country to death financially, as in the case of Spain and Portugal. For over 1,700 years, the Jews have been bewailing their sad fate in that they have been exiled from their homeland, as they call Palestine. But gentlemen, did the world give it to them in fee simple, they would at once find some reason for not returning. Why? Because they are vampires, and vampires do not live on vampires. They cannot live only among themselves. They must subsist on Christians and other people not of their race. If you do not exclude them from these United States, in their Constitution, in less than 200 years they will have swarmed here in such great numbers that they will dominate and devour the land and change our form of government, for which we Americans have shed our blood, given our lives our substance and jeopardized our liberty. If you do not exclude them, in less than 200 years our descendants will be working in the fields to furnish them substance, while they will be in the counting houses rubbing their hands. I warn you, gentlemen, if you do not exclude Jews for all time, your children will curse you in your graves. Jews, gentlemen, are Asiatics, let them be born where they will nor how many generations they are away from Asia, they will never be otherwise. Their ideas do not conform to an American’s, and will not even thou they live among us ten generations. A leopard cannot change its spots. Jews are Asiatics, are a menace to this country if permitted entrance, and should be excluded by this Constitutional Convention.
