U.S. allocates $205 million for Israel’s Iron Dome anti-rocket system

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.

By Natasha Mozgovaya

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 strong relationship ends if the U.S. would say no to Israel.]

“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.

    The world may be aghast at the trouble Israel is causing the world all these years with never ending conflicts and wars for a small piece of land fit for goats.

    They control the top .. bottom the people has no say.

    They even control the US president.

    So why should a tiny little country need such high tech weapons. To conquer the world?

      [Editor Note: This article reflects an average American’s justified anger at the extent of Zionist control in the US. It’s important to remember that while organized Jewry plays a major role, and deserves blame, it is empowered by Illuminati central bankers (Rothschilds, Rockefellers etc.) who also empower Freemasons. Below, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin are critical of Jews. But they were Freemasons and Franklin may even have been a crypto Jew. In other words, the Illuminati represents a marriage of satanist Jews and gentiles, who hate mankind, including ordinary Jews. The Illuminati cult has infiltrated and controls all important institutions, Jewish or not. Ordinary Jews have as much say in the agenda of organized Jewry as ordinary Americans in setting US policy. But many are taken in. Jews who put their own country before Israel need to speak up. ]

      They have infiltrated the Senate and Congress, taken over the media and Hollywood, and are now going after the internet and Freedom of Speech.

      The following article, “A Talmud Ace Tackles Thorny Issue of Net Neutrality” at the (Jewish) Daily Forward asks the question;

      “How should the United States regulate the Internet? The answer to this question — which affects the flow of information and culture, the growth of the economy and the future of communications, education and democracy itself — rests largely in the hands of Julius Genachowski, a 48-year-old Jew from Long Island with knowledge of Talmud and an appointment to one of the most critical policy posts in Washington.”

      The rest of the article goes on to speak more about Julius’ beliefs and commitments to Judaism and the Talmud than his obligation to protect American Free Speech (or how he plans to restrict that freedom). It also mentions his connections with other Zionist infil-traitors in our government, as well as being a Harvard Good-Ole-Boy!

      What exactly does this Jewish Talmud say?

      The first words that come to mind when I hear the word Talmud are racism, immorality, filthy, vile, perverted, vulgar! Want to know why?

      Before trotting out the “anti-semite! smear,” go to he following URL and see for yourself what Talmudism is about. Read just 35 quotes from the Talmud to see how racist, filthy, and vile this evil belief system.

      Recently Helen Thomas declared that “Congress, the White House and Hollywood, Wall Street are owned by the Zionists.”

      Wayne Madsen is concerned this administration may introduce a Patriot Act for the Internet in which we could see massive government surveillance of our personal computers, phones and surveillance of our internet activities.

      Is it in the interest of National Security of the United States of America to place individuals more loyal to the State of Israel than the United States of America in control of our government? Many of these individuals have dual citizenship as well (Rahm Emmanuel and Michael Chertoff for example). Some are allegedly involved with the Israeli Mossad.

      76 Senators signed the Boxer-Isakson Letter reaffirming the U.S.-Israeli Alliance. They apparently think Israel is the 51st state of the Union. These same senate-whores GIVE billions of U.S. tax dollars and weapons to Israel each year and YOU pay for it. Meanwhile, Israel commits war crimes and crimes against humanity in Palestine, using illegal weapons such as white phosphorus bombs on civilians and children.

      Even more disturbing are some of the statements made by some of these Zionista’s, such as Ariel Sharon:

      “We control America” “Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.”

      – Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001.

      Even our own statesmen have warned “Israel controls the United States Senate.”
      – Sen. William Fulbright

      George Washington ( in Maxims of George Washington by A. A. Appleton & Co.) said:

      “They (the Jews) work more effectively against us, than the enemy’s armies. They are a hundred times more dangerous to our liberties and the great cause we are engaged in… It is much to be lamented that each state, long ago, has not hunted them down as pest to society and the greatest enemies we have to the happiness of America.”

      Benjamin Franklin:

      (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 penetration. 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.”

      Another Israeli spokeswoman, Tzipora Menache, stated that she was not worried about negative ramifications that the Israeli onslaught on Gaza might have on the way the Obama administration would view Israel. She said:

      “You know very well, and the stupid Americans know equally well, that we control their government, irrespective of who sits in the White House. You see, I know it and you know it that no American president can be in a position to challenge us even if we do the unthinkable. What can they (Americans) do to us? We control congress, we control the media, we control show biz, and we control everything in America. In America you can criticize God, but you can’t criticize Israel. ”

      http://theruthlesstruth.com/Ruthlesstruth.html

      We must elect officials that put America, first, last, and in between! Any persons conspiring to undermine America or use our power or resources to serve non-American interests, such as Israel, should be removed from office and criminally investigated and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

    The Israeli American alliance is not stronger than ever. However, the Israel control of America is stronger than ever.

  4. Ronald Douglas Kennedy  December 12, 2010 at 2:20 pm

    I know this Two Hundred and Five Million of US Dollars to these clowns on both sides (the blind giver and the greedy taker) is just Chump Change taken from American’s, BUT how much of the work to build these weapons could be been done by American Defense Plant workers now looking for job’s any job.

    And maybe we could have put in a widget to activate the next time they fire on our Finest. ( USSLIBERTY.COM )Our they sell our technology to those who would use them against our Finest. By those dead squatter brains under Iron head doilies not looking for a righteous peace agreement with there Semitic Brothers, also the children of Shem.

  5. G Street  December 12, 2010 at 1:53 pm

    News like this is airbrushed out of American awareness because the truth is anti-Semitic. Any notice of our warped relationship with Israel or notice of how important committees always wind up being in the hands of Jewish representatives is just more proof of American’s inherent anti-Semitism.

    In the ADL view of anti-Semitism, it is “the belief or behavior hostile toward Jews JUST BECAUSE they are Jewish.” Notice that this broad definition would still allow for criticism for acts harmful to the nation as a whole, but this definition has been widened in practice to include any notice of anything Jews do as anti-Semitic – if it is critical and/or pronounced by a non-Jew. Criticism can and is made by Jews in Israel, and American Jews make proclamation of control with increasing frequency, and that is fine. But we, the wider national interest, may not speak in Congress or on national television. The press casts the nation’s eyes downward when anything having to do with Jews or Israel comes up, and considers it best practice to see and say nothing about our growing servitude. Most Americans are so poorly informed now as to blindly accept that anything outside their corral would be “anti-Semitic” and would prefer being led into poverty and WWIII rather than be called that.
