US support for Israel primary motivation for tragic attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11 and in 1993 as well (look up ‘Israel as a terrorist’s motivation’ in the index of James Bamford’s ‘A Pretext for War’ book and take a look at the following as well):

    General (Ret) James David (who is mentioned on the cover of the third edition of former Republican Congressman Paul Findley’s ‘They Dare to Speak Out’ book about the power/influence of the pro-Israel lobby on the US political system and media) wrote the following intro:

    When it comes to finding ways to reduce the U.S. deficit, everything is on the table with one exception–more aid to Israel. And by the way, the following story can only be found in the two Israeli newspapers, Haaretz or the Jerusalem Post. I guess the American media have been ordered to keep this story silent as to not anger Americans who have to sacrifice with this budget deficit. This is just one more example as to the way the American media is controlled. The Associated Press never misses an opportunity to slam Iran or Syria or even the Palestinians, but when it’s something embarrassing to Israel the presses are silent.

    It was just a few weeks ago that the Obama administration made one of the most humiliating decisions in foreign diplomacy of all times when it attempted to bribe Israel with a gift of 20 more F-35 Stealth fighter jets in return for a 90 day freeze on its illegal settlement construction in the West Bank. The U.S. would also promise to veto anything critical to Israel that might come up in the U.N. Security Council and would also promise not to ask for anymore extensions on the freeze after this ninety days.
    This military aid to Israel is not only unnecessary, but it serves as a means for Israel’s belligerent leadership to feel comfortable in invading neighbors and creating more wars. We have created a monster in the Middle East and in the long run America is paying for it in blood and money. This is the latest additional aid approved by the House just four days ago.

    Barack Obama’s administration has allocated $205 million dollars toward funding Israel’s advanced anti-rocket system, the Iron Dome.

    The House of Representatives made the decision 212-206 after it passed a continuing resolution regarding funds for the 2011 fiscal year.

    “This was a priority of Congress and President Obama, and it is the first funding of its kind for this important short-range rocket and artillery shell defense system,” said Representative Steve Rothman (D-NJ), a member of the House Appropriations Defense Subcommittee.

    The funds are in addition to the more than $200 million allocated for the Arrow and David’s Sling, joint U.S.-Israel anti-missile systems.

    “This funding sends a strong message, to both our enemies and allies, by providing more total dollars than ever before toward these rocket and missile defense programs,” said Rothman. “This is only the latest example that when it comes to defense, military, and intelligence cooperation, the relationship between the U.S. and Israel has never been stronger.”

    (If this relationship is so strong, then why did Israel refuse the request by the U.S. State Department to extend the settlement building freeze another 90 days? It’s obvious that this relationship is strong only if the U.S. keeps feeding Israel with more weapons. See how fast this relationship ends if the U.S. would say no to Israel.) MY WORDS.

    “Given the scrutiny that our nation is appropriately giving to every dollar expended for all purposes – including the defense of the United States and its allies – it is a mark of the great importance of these projects that they were included in this funding bill,” Rothman added.

    The U.S. Congress passed last week the Obama administration’s initiative to provide Israel with the grant to procure Iron Dome batteries just before the system aced its final test over the summer.

    To date, the Defense Ministry has bought two batteries. Several months ago, the ministry’s top brass estimated the sum the Americans allotted would be sufficient for procuring eight or nine batteries, half of what is necessary to protect the Negev and the Galilee from short- and intermediate-range rockets and missiles.

    The defense establishment is still weighing the balance between the number of radars for the systems to the number of intercept missiles necessary. Different estimates suggest that each intercept missile will cost $40,000.
