White House Releases Weapons Shipment to Israel

The White House has unblocked the weapons shipment to Israel that they had recently blocked, according to a report on Israel’s Channel 1 TV. Among the more notable weapon blocked were Hellfire missiles.

The White House blocked the weapons shipment, after learning that Israel had standardized procedures in place to purchase weapons, and didn’t need to go through the White House for any approval.

President Obama reportedly blocked the shipment to show his disapproval of Israel’s actions in Gaza.

  14. I’m sure that many of us have made our concerns known to the President and Secretary Kerry. I certainly have, and often. Whilst my voice is small, I’m sure there are many more influencial voices of people who voted for President Obama, who have tried to take the blinders of their eyes. Perhaps ISIS actually helped in this regard.

  15. Should never have been an issue. I have lost much of my support of this administration. I truly feel that the president is overwhelmed and really does n ot know what to do in mnay situations.

  16. unfortunately there is no choice. would far rather that this not be necessary sigh

  17. Scott Soffen says:

    RELAX….Weapons were being transshipped through third parties anyway. Come on. You actually believe what you read in the news?

  18. Ronald Raff says:

    Thank you Mr President

  19. Paula Martin says:

    An American journalist had to die and another threatened to get this done?

  20. ti was wrong to block it in the first place.

  21. Pam Wong says:

    Cuz they feel the same terrorist pain now…they need some solidarity from Israel now!

  22. Obama&Kerry anti jewish state.thank you God,for the Weapon Israel need it to destroy the Hamas.

  23. Eva Perl says:

    They got back their sense of what is right

  24. Bibi talked nice about big O with his nose in the air and big O’s feelings were helped. What a baby!!! (Big O, not Bibi.)

  25. And what do we have to pay for this…What would Israel do if the US needed help?…Help them…but we need the weapons…

  26. Joe Lodrige says:

    Dont think they had a change of heart, but hope israel gets what they need.

  27. Knate Stahl says:

    It’s about time…

  28. Knate Stahl says:

    I think some of us do not trust the same person, whose name need not be mentioned. Hint? He’s the POTUS.

  29. lots of diverse comments here but the simple answer is, ‘ the world can see what animals we are dealing with and the USA has always had an excellent relationship with Israel ‘. Its that simple !!.

  30. Wow, an element of intelligence creeps in!

  31. Thats a Real Good Move
    Mr Presìdent……
    THANK YOU…..

  32. Again I do not want to diminish barbarous act today or diminish pain family must be going through but murderer kind of shot himself I’m foot (forgive use of term)

  33. Rick Lutes says:

    Mr. Kerry and Mr. Obama have been doing their best to ingratiate themselves to Iran. The quickest and most obvious method is to lend support to Hamas, an Iranian Client state; and to attempt to weaken Iran’s enemy, the Zionist Regime.

    Obama has no real interest in Israel being safe. Obama has no real interest in Gaza. Obama wants to be known as the President who signed a treaty with Iran and to that end, the Israelis, the Gazans, the PA, anyone else handy is to be thrown under the bus.

    No Obama’s problem with Netanyahu is Iran. It is not Israeli politics but Beltway politics. Obama’s Administration ends soon and his entire Foreign Policy from his “Russian Reset” failure to his Arab Spring failure; has unraveled and he has nothing to merit his Nobel Peace Prize and he knows it. This is his last ditch effort to ensure his legacy, a Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty with Iran.

  34. This a good news though why it was blocked in the first place still remains ambigious in terms of the message it tried to convey while israel is locked with a bitter war with hamas terrorism.I believe thos is a direct result of president obama’s altruism regarding hams and isis.These cowardly beasts are bleeding iraq,palistine and syria as well.israel is fighting bravely not only fir its security but also for the peotection of the whole world.Sponsors of terrorism like turkey,iran and quatar shoyld be expised for who they are realy.Any ways i belueve president obama will awake to the grim reality of the world cpncoted by turkey,iran and quatar.Israel should be given rhe highest political and military backing at this crucial time of war.

  35. Judith Ross says:

    You mean the US is finally waking up!

  36. It’s about time,ISRAEL is our only Friend,and we can ALL SEE the way the US is treating them ……… It’s the only democracy in the MIDDLE EAST !!!!!!!! Hello

  37. Rick Lutes says:

    The block was illegal. The treaty states the transfer is between Israel and the Pentagon. The Whitehouse has no jurisdiction. but since Obama routinely commits illegal acts, why should he stop now? President Obama’s illegality challenges that of President Nixon.

    Nixon ran for President promising to end an unpopular war overseas.
    Obama ran for President promising to end an unpopular war overseas.

    During the war President Nixon covertly used military materiel to attack and kill enemy combatants outside the theatre of operations, specifically in Cambodia and Laos.

    During the war President Obama covertly used military materiel to attack and kill enemy combatants outside the theatre of operations, specifically in Pakistan and Yemen.

    During his second term President Nixon withdrew all troops from Vietnam effectively ending the war.
    During his second term President Obama, OK bad example.

    During the Nixon Administration the IRS targeted political opponents of Nixon
    During the Obama Administration the IRS targeted political opponents of Obama

    Nixon was caught spying on the Democratic National Committee.
    Obama was caught spying on the American public and foreign allies.

    Nixon illegally wiretapped several domestic reporters telephones.
    Obama illegally wiretapped the German Chancellor Merckel twice,and the Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff’s private telephones.

    Deep Throat (Mark Felt) was the insider who leaked the information regarding President Nixon’s illegal surveillance of the DNC. He was regarded as a national hero.

    Edward Snowden was the insider who leaked the information regarding President Obama’s illegal surveillance of the American Public and foreign allies. Democrat Dianne Feinstein accuses Snowden of treason.

    When the public finds out about Nixon’s illegal actions Democrats, Dixicrats, Republican, and Independents are so outraged impeachment proceedings are started, a special Prosecutor was appointed to investigate and ultimately Nixon is forced to resign from office in disgrace precipitating one of the larger Constitutional crises the Country has faced since the Civil War.

    When the public finds out about Obama’s illegal actions Republicans alone voiced any outrage and the American public remained as silent as Rachel Carson’s Spring

    So I guess you could say it is not a fair comparison. Obama’s crimes far outstrip what that amateur Nixon did.

  38. If Obama does something illegal, then it is the fault of the other two branches of government who have that job constitutionally. Republicans make accusations but that’s legally all they can be until it is taken up by all branches (the other two) and so this is a failure there until remedied. Innocent until proven guilty.

  40. It should not have been blocked and played with. But if Obama does something illegal, then it is the fault of the other two branches of government who have that job constitutionally. Republicans make accusations but that’s legally all they can be until it is taken up by all branches (the other two) and so this is a failure there until remedied. Innocent until proven guilty.

  41. It’s about time, thank God——

  42. It’s about time, thank God——

  43. I don’t care if it is legal. Israel is America’s alley. He just sold weapons to Turkey and Qatar and they give them to the terrorist!! This is wrong!!

  45. Yay we are finally waking up

  46. They finally got it. Obama is an idiot and surrounded by more idiots as his advisors.
