How Much does Israel Cost the Average American?

By Alcibiades Bilzerian


While so many Americans are subsisting on food stamps, losing their homes, and accumulating credit card debt they will never be able to pay off, the US is giving Israel $3 billion in direct foreign aid every year and, according to Congressman James Traficant, another $12-17 billion in indirect aid such as valuable military equipment deemed “scrapped,” loan guarantees, and preferential contracts. Israel is an affluent country with more than 10,000 millionaires and, according to the International Monetary Fund, was one of the few economies that weathered the 2008 financial storm nearly unscathed.

It’s hard to calculate the exact amount of foreign aid America gives Israel every year because the Israeli lobby in America secretly campaigns to give the tiny desert nation as much under-the-table aid as they can secure. In 1992, AIPAC President David Steiner was caught on tape bragging about his organization’s incredible power in America. Steiner first admitted to manipulating the US Secretary of State into giving Israel more foreign aid. Steiner said he, ”met with [Secretary of State] Jim Baker and I cut a deal with him. I got, besides the $3 billion, you know they’re looking for the Jewish votes, and I’ll tell him whatever he wants to hear … Besides the $10 billion in loan guarantees which was a fabulous thing, $3 billion in foreign, in military aid, and I got almost a billion dollars in other goodies that people don’t even know about.”

According to the General Accounting Office (GAO), Israel operates the largest spying operation on America of any of our allies, and they use some of their intelligence gathering to steal American business secrets, which costs the US jobs and money. The two largest and most powerful Israeli lobbies in America, AIPAC and the Anti-Defamation League, have both been caught red-handed spying for Israel (see the 2005 AIPAC Scandal and 1993 ADL Spying scandal). Shortly after the September 11, 2001 attacks, the FBI rounded up more than a hundred Israeli spies who were caught infiltrating dozens of federal agencies. It was one of the largest spy rings in American history.

If the American government took the $15-$20 billion it gives Israel every year and put it into a savings account for the 4.5 million babies born p/yr, every American would receive $8,000-$10,500 upon turning 18 years old. In another option, the US government could give the money away in a lottery and make 15k-20k Americans millionaires every year. Either of these options would provide an incredible boost to the US economy. But the truth is that $15-$20 billion per year is probably just scratching the surface when we look at the cost of America’s relationship with Israel.

Dr. Thomas R. Stauffer, a world renowned economist who taught economics and Middle East studies at Harvard as well as serving twice in the Executive Office of the President on a task force for oil imports and controls, estimated that as of 2002 (in 2002 dollars) Israel has cost the US $3 trillion. His estimate took into account direct military aid, political support, oil price increases as a result of conflicts, and peripheral/hidden foreign aid. It should be noted that this figure would be a gross understatement today because much of the cost of supporting Israel has been accrued since 2002 in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars and the Iran war mongering, which has led to a dramatic increase in oil costs. In addition, inflation has increased considerably since 2002 and would therefore make the figure significantly larger today.

In Stauffer’s estimation, US aid to Israel costs 275,000 American jobs per year due to unfair trade imbalances and sanctions on Israel’s enemies. In one example of under the table aid, Stauffer pointed out that the US actually gave Russia and Romania billions of dollars in undeclared aid to facilitate Jews moving to Israel. The US has also spent hundreds of billions in the region to secure friendly relationships with Israel. John McCain admitted in an interview that US aid to Egypt is really just a bribe so the Egyptians will maintain friendly relations with Israel. The US has also given Turkey and Greece billions for the same purpose. The cost of America’s relationship to Israel today adjusted for inflation and including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is likely to be in excess of $5 trillion, or $16k per American.

A summary of Stauffer’s breakdown can be found here. 

First, we have to identify what Israel brings to the relationship, which as former CIA Chief Michael Scheuer points out in the video below–amounts to absolutely nothing. Not only is Israel a terrible ally, attacking America in at least two separate false flag attacks (See the lavon affair and the USS Liberty) and actively spying on America, but it it isn’t really the “only democracy in the Middle East” as the Israelis like to claim. Many Arabs in Israel can’t vote or even live with their spouses. Israel is a racist apartheid state that separates Arabs and Jews in separate and totally unequal schools and facilities, as the following article Jewish Israelis are the worst Anti-Semites On The Planet details: http://thebilzerianreport.com/?p=537. As such, America’s support of Israel causes great damage to America’s relations with oil producing states in the region.

Most Americans view Israel as an ally on the front lines fighting terrorists so Americans don’t have to, but nothing could be further from the truth. The few Islamic terrorist attacks on America in the last 50 years were all a result of America’s support for the Israeli apartheid regime. After September 11, 2001, the media claimed the terrorists attacked because they: “hated our freedom.” The terrorists however stated on record that they attacked America because of its support for Israel. After all, if terrorists were going to attack a country because of its freedom they would have attacked the Netherlands or Switzerland.

The only people arrested on 9-11 were Israeli Mossad agents who were seen filming the attacks and then celebrating afterwards. The Dancing Israelis, as they were late known, were arrested in a van that had contained explosives and a box cutter, which was identical to the ones used in the terrorist attacks. They all failed lie detector tests about their role in the attacks. Before the US government classified all information on Israel’s involvement in 9-11, the FBI officially concluded that Israel had to have known of the attack before 9-11-2001 and didn’t warn the US. After the attacks, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “We are benefitting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq.” He also said, “these events have swung American public opinion in our favor.”

America has spent countless treasure and lives invading Afghanistan and Iraq for Israel’s security. It’s amazing that this factual statement is still in debate today, but to clarify, Iraq had no capacity to threaten America’s security. Saddam didn’t have weapons of mass destruction or any connection to Al-Qaeda. Many Americans think their government invaded Iraq for oil, but that is completely false. America gets the vast majority of its oil from Mexico, Canada, Nigeria, and Venezuela rather than the Middle East. If America’s goal was truly to secure further energy resources it would have built a pipeline from Canada or invested in its plentiful natural gas reserves rather than spending a trillion dollars bombing and destroying Iraq’s oil production capacity and then taking no oil for its efforts.

The architects of the Iraq war, Pearl and Wolfowitz, were both closely tied to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which mercilessly campaigned for the war. The book The Israeli Lobby and US Foreign Policy puts the primary blame of the Iraq invasion on AIPAC’s merciless lobbying for war. In January 2003, AIPAC executive director Howard Kohr stated, “quietly lobbying Congress to approve the use of force in Iraq” was one of “AIPAC’s successes over the past year.” Jeffrey Goldberg reported during a profile piece of AIPAC’s policy director Steven J. Rosen that, “AIPAC lobbied Congress in favor of the Iraq war.”  The American media, which happens to have a disproportionate representation of zionist executives (see the video below or this article for proof), censored all those who disagreed with the war and labeled them unsupportive of the troops and traitors.

The Israeli lobby and the Israel-supporting mainstream media are now campaigning for a war in Iran. If Israel and the US strike Iran, gas prices will likely reach $6-7 a gallon, which will have a dramatic impact on the average American. In fact, just the warmongering alone by Israel and the zionist controlled American media has caused nearly a $1 price hike. This costs the average American an extra $123 per month or $1,476 per year. With the current gas prices near $4 a barrel, the average American will spend 9% of their total income on gas. If America or Israel attack Iran, most experts estimate that it will cost the average American an additional $2952-$4428 per year.

Even though Israel takes a great deal of money from US in direct aid and even charitable donations from Jews and Christians, according to Official Direct Assistance (ODA) Israel is one of the stingiest developed countries in the world. Israel is one of the richest countries on the planet, but gives nearly 10 times less than the world average and gives the 4th least of any developed nation per capita, only barely beating out much poorer countries like Poland, Hungary, and Turkey. So while Israel took in $3 billion from America in direct aid and $12-17 billion in the other aid measures mentioned above, they only gave $141 million in foreign aid to nations in need of assistance in 2010.

    I find it ironic that America will send so much money to Israel without a question but it will do nothing to help Detroit, which is a victim of Zionist New World Order CFR policies of de-industrialization. Obama will bail out Wall street Jewish bankers and select favorite corporations but he won’t lift a finger to help Detroit. Detroit owes @18 billion in debt. That’s about four years of US taxpayer money that subsidizes Israel. If the US was not hobbled by the FED they could give Detroit interest free loans. But the Jews won’t have that.

    When have you ever seen a country destroy its own cities by planned economic policy and then do nothing to help them out? Well the carpet bagging Jews are waiting at the gate to buy up whats left for pennies on the dollar. Now China has all our factories and industries. Will Israel pull the plug on the US and move their allegiance to China? I’ll bet they do. They will turn on the US just as they did on Germany in WW I. They bleed us for all we are worth and then split to China where they sent all our factories.

    In my personal opinion, it is way past time to get to the root of the US-Israel love fest.

    Everyone knows, or should know by now, that the plague of Zionism cannot exist without outside support. A sound case can be made, that Israel itself cannot exist without outside support.

    It is easy to simply blame organized Jewry, get pissed off, and vent. Yet, if we really are honest, we have to realize that every incursion made by organized Jewry, be it the (not) Fed. Res., to the endless gifts of money, resources, and hardware to Israel, and everything in between, only occurs with the willingness of the target population to accept the condition(s).

    Is this passive acceptance we witness over and over again really due to the people being held in the dark, or is it way deeper?

    Perhaps a key lies in the propensity of Westerners to rely on unverified, and unverifiable beliefs. For example, America simply believes that Israels’ well being is directly linked to their own. This belief is enshrined with religious overtones, which makes it extremely difficult to focus on, much less to review, as this belief acquires the protection of faith to ensure its survival.

    Pointing out, as this article does, that the belief in question is nothing more than a glorified co-dependency, doesn’t work to change entrenched points of view because the belief, surrounded by faith, needs no verification to exist.

    A wise man once said that ideas are tools for learning, not idols to be worshiped. Perhaps the same can be said regarding beliefs.

      I suggest that President Ahmadinejad has provided the opportunity, that is call on an international team to study the “Holocaust”. The team would be open to hearing views of all interested. One of two things will happen: 1) it will be exposed as a fairy tale; or 2) we will get a National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States like report.

      Either way “Westerners” will win.

    Q: How Much does Israel Cost the Average American?

    A: Any amount is too much.

  4. mevashir  July 20, 2013 at 1:50 am

    Most of the aid to Israel is earmarked to be spent on American produced weapons and material. Many Israeli companies have gone bankrupt.

    The reason the US is so generous to Israel is that it directly benefits our own mega corporations and banks. Israel works in close collusion with our elites to eviscerate the lives and fortunes of middle America.

    Dirty Zionist money will always find dirty goyim to do their bidding and run their interference. All those DHS and FBI employees wont bite the hand that feeds them.

    And neither will the officers of the US military whose eyes are firmly on their retirement accounts and country clubs. All are slaves of mammon.

    PallMall likes to write insulting troll posts. Hard to figure whose side he’s on.

    Peter makes a good point in that we really don’t know how many of the rocket attacks on Israel were false flag attempts made to make the Palestinians look bad. That said could all ten THOUSAND of them since the start of the Intifada have been false flag ventures? Doesn’t seem likely. In just the first ten months of 2012 over 2,256 rockets were launched into Israel.

    How does this “serve” the Palestinian people? In fact it does not help them at all. This is sheer insanity especially when one considers that the financial aid given them could easily have set them up in a far more secure place with far better land resources a LONG time ago… But no the Palestinian leadership did not want that.

    Thus I say we need to allow the Israelis a free hand in their ventures of containing Palestinian aggression. It is the Palestinian leadership which has refused peace overtures at every step of the way. Sami Jamil Jadallah knows this of course but due to his heritage and peer pressure he refuses to even acknowledge the obvious. This is sad because he knows better. Again the pro-Palestinian defenders tend to be in the same category as the war profiteers they condemn. Each has a vested interest in continued death and violence. It’s sickening.

    We need better leadership from the Palestinians. Brave men and women to understand the sins of their ancestors in order to end this culture of suicide.

      Then why would israel support the “free Syrian army” (al nusra). The multi faction group is guilty of outrageous war crimes in Syria. It seems that Israel is taking advantage of the instability to the point of providing a justified reason for Russia to strengthen its bonds with Syria in the midst of the vacuum. And the vacuum ,that was created in the first place, was aided by funding from the U.S. to Israel.

    Although it’s not on topic, please bear with me. I feel it’s relevant from the view point of the insidious power dual citizenship Jews manipulating not only foreign policy but our policy here in what is supposed to be a “Christian” nation. Please listen to the +/- 3 minute video and realize how they have intentionally corrupted our nation while bleeding us to death with their “tribal brothers” in high places of “appointed” power, i.e. DHS, NSA etc.


    Other great nations have been rotted from within, we’ve been duped by corrupt treasonous “leaders” who feed off of AIPAC and OUR tax “gifts” to them, into believing these Christian/Muslim nations, (many who treat their people better than we’re treated here under the burden of the Rothschild Central Banking cabal), are our mortal enemies when they are TARGETS ONLY of Talmudic Jews in Israel and HERE destroying us from within as they did Russia, Germany et al.


    We are heading down the same path the Russians, the Germans and all of Eastern Europe. a horror too frightening to contemplate!

    Why do we support allies of al-Qaida?

    > In “Meddling overseas” (July 12, New Era), columnist John Stossel made excellent points about the folly of U.S. interventions in Afghanistan and Syria. He even helped explain why politicians find such interventions so attractive: “war is the health of the state.”
    > But Stossel dodged key questions. If the U.S. military is working with forces associated with al-Qaida to bring down Syrian President Assad, why have we spent $1 trillion on “homeland security” since 9/11? Why have thousands of U.S. troops died and hundreds of thousands been wounded in the war against terror? Why have we given up our civil liberties via passage of the Patriot Act and a huge expansion of government surveillance?
    > And why did Congress give the military authority to detain any one of us indefinitely without a trial, based solely on the accusation that we have done what the U.S. military does every day in Syria — support a group associated with al-Qaida?
    > A vocal minority has been saying for years that the War on Terror is a fraud designed to strike fear and docility into our hearts and enrich the myriad defense contractors dependent on Pentagon contracts. But such warnings have gained little traction because most people are entranced by what they think they know about 9/11.
    > Al-Qaida is real enough, but I am convinced it is only a pawn being used to destroy democracy in the U.S. and justify wars of aggression. We’re living George Orwell’s nightmare. After an honest look at what’s happening in Syria, what other conclusion can we make?

    In support of Israel we finance our sworn enemy, and an act that turns an ordinary citizen into an enemy combatant becomes a policy supported by both parties … Priceless.

  8. Excalibur  July 19, 2013 at 10:24 am

    This is a good article and an interesting one – as well meaning people attempt to put a finite cost on what ‘israel’ costs every citizen in America. That israeli entity obviously harvests and reaps in money and goods from all around the western world at the same time. I understand that some of our ancient ancestors called the jews the ‘harvest people’ – because they always showed up when food was being harvested but were nowhere to be seen when it was being sewn or produced.

    This is one reason why they were universally BARRED from any public office, most trades and especially from positions of authority over host populations. They were completely untrustworthy in this regard and unable to rise above their urges to manipulate and corrupt in their own favour. If our forefathers could all see this across the world – then why on earth can’t we? Answer : they have even hijacked the education system to poison and warp the minds of our children to their own advantage as well!

    While attempting to tot up the ‘aid’ and hidden aid figures is very eye-opening we must not forget one other massive aspect. That is that they have ‘invented’ our discredited financial system of central banks and debt – forcing it upon us all – by secretly removing any who rightly objected with extreme prejudice. They never shrink from mass murder and assassination to enforce THAT little precedent around the world – because THAT is the biggest conjuring trick of all.

    The end result is that by ‘inventing’ the financial system and deploying it to their own benefit – the rest of us lose EVERY time. Thus the vast majority of us work for 50 or 60 years to create an income and to earn a living – and yet still somehow end up with nothing to show for it after all those years of toil.

    In THAT financial context they cost us every penny we ever made. Add to this our sons and daughters slain in their manipulated wars – and every shred of dignity that we thought we had – by psychologically inveigling us in their gangster schemes and criminal activity around the world.

    What self respect does a dupe have left? None until he acts against his deceiver.

      It cannot be that our politicians are oblivious to this organism…..they cannot be that stupid or blind, they are obviously compromised by a group of satanists bent on the destruction of “Gods Real Chosen People”……….Mankind.

    • Excalibur  July 19, 2013 at 1:56 pm

      I no longer believe that it is possible anymore for a politician of any party whatsoever to find themselves in office, let alone holding power, without first making clear their willingness and ability to sell out their own people. They must also first kneel before the beast. Without that they will never have authority in the new world that is coming to rule us.

      You must have seen how they suddenly change once in office – and all the talk that they knew we wanted to hear before they were elected suddenly dries up – and they strangely then take on a different and opposite tongue.

      There were real and decent people in politics at one time – but they have been systematically usurped, character assassinated and purged to make way for the new ‘professional politicians’.

      Now instead of telling their electorate WHAT principles they personally stand for and stick to that – they ask us “What would you like me to stand for ….” in their hollow and craven shallowness. A shallowness that is subject to constant and cynical ‘change’. In any event – perceived political differences between parties that are developed before an election are meaningless. All the election does is choose which management team will implement the ongoing bankers agenda.

    Speaking of spending the taxpayers money, many prominent Jewish organizations with power in Washington D.C., help organizations who support illegal immigrants in exchange for their support of Israel, I’ve seen the quotes from prominent Jewish leaders.

    IRS Gave $14 Billion in Refundable Tax Credits to Illegals

    Excerpts from the article:

    Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., both said the immigration bill they helped push through the Senate was designed to “bring people out of the shadows.”

    Yet, if illegal aliens are truly in the shadows, why has the Internal Revenue Service been able to find enough of them to pay them more than $14 billion in refundable tax credits?

    Here the IG detailed how the IRS was providing both the Child Tax Credit (CTC) and the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) to illegal aliens. The Child Tax Credit (CTC) is deducted from the income tax liability someone otherwise owes. The Additional Child Tax Credit is the “refundable” portion of the CTC and is paid to people who owe no taxes at all or whose tax liability is less than the value of the credit.

    “Nonetheless, as it now stands,” said the IG, “the payment of federal funds through this tax benefit appears to provide an additional incentive for aliens to enter, reside and work in the U.S. without authorization, which contradicts federal law and policy to remove such incentives.”

    When it comes to enforcing the immigration law, our government cannot find illegal aliens. When it comes to redistributing wealth to them, the IRS knows exactly where to send the checks.


    Brian: According to another article it’s well known in the illegal immigrant community the IRS doesn’t show up at their homes to see if the kids they claim for tax credits actually live there so a vast number of illegal immigrants claim on their tax form they’re taking care of their nieces and nephews and other who live in Mexico; this is a crime but they get up to $1,000 per child, a lot of them get checks for $10,000 for child tax credits.

      Take the CNS article with a grain of salt.

    • Brian  July 18, 2013 at 7:06 pm

      I don’t know about the source but the facts are correct, I’ve seen them from sources I’m familiar with.

      Excerpts from an article:

      “There is not a doubt in my mind there’s huge fraud taking place here,” a whistleblower told Eyewitness News on condition of anonymity, “We’re talking about a multi-billion dollar fraud scheme here that’s taking place and no one is talking about it.”

      So how does the alleged fraud work? It’s a little convoluted but reporter Bob Segall walks you through the process:

      The Internal Revenue Service says everyone who is employed in the United States – even those who are working here illegally – must report income and pay taxes. Of course, undocumented workers are not supposed to have a social security number. So for them to pay taxes, the IRS created what’s called an ITIN, an individual taxpayer identification number. A 9-digit ITIN number issued by the IRS provides both resident and nonresident aliens with a unique identification number that allows them to file tax returns.
      Each spring, at tax preparation offices all across the nation, many illegal immigrants are now eagerly filing tax returns to take advantage of a tax loophole, using their ITIN numbers to get huge refunds from the IRS.

      The loophole is called the Additional Child Tax Credit. It’s a fully-refundable credit of up to $1000 per child, and it’s meant to help working families who have children living at home.
      And this is where the scheme kicks in: many illegal immigrant use the tax credit to claim childrenliving in Mexico as dependents.

      “We’ve seen sometimes 10 or 12 dependents, most times nieces and nephews, on these tax forms,” the whistleblower told Eyewitness News. “The more you put on there, the more you get back.”

      According to Eyewitness, the whistleblower was able to provide proof of the scheme. For instance, he produced a return that shows a $10,3000 refund paid out to an “undocumented worker” who claimed nine nieces and nephews. Another return showed an $11,000 refund made to another “undocumented worker” who claimed seven nieces and nephews.

      “I can bring out stacks and stacks. It’s just so easy it’s ridiculous,” the anonymous source said.
      “The magnitude of the problem has grown exponentially,” Russell George, the United States Department of Treasury’s Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) said.

      A report released by George’s office shows the problem costs taxpayers more than $4.2 billioneach year.

      “Keep in mind, we’re talking $4 billion per year,” George said. “It’s very troubling.”

      Apparently, the IRS has known about the scheme for years and it has done nothing about itdespite repeated warnings from the inspector general’s office.

    Great piece but Hell….. the “aid” to Israel is the “insult” part of adding “insult to injury.” The real crime comes in usury, money laundering and all the funny-money we can’t trace, which renders the real economies of goods and services to be slaves to the money-changers, the you-know-who’s..

    The amount of money the Jews need to manipulate politics in this country and around the world is incalculable. So is the amount of money they print in their Jewish-controlled central banks and distribute, through various accounting tricks including (but not limited to) fractional reserve lending, to their Sayanim known as the banking system.

    This is a crime syndicate that is simply unimaginable in scope. Think of Israel as an extremely heavily fortified Jekyll Island.

      Israeli friends and partners running US and world financial institutions and economies in US, Europe, Latin America, for the most part are associated with or alumni of Goldman Sachs. They took the US, Spain, Greece, France, Portugal and almost the entire world economy to ruins fleecing hundreds of millions of people out of their life time savings and retirement accounts. This is not the first time these folks ruined the financial lives of millions taking over companies making their stocks worthless and then issuing junk bonds… I am sure all of you remember Ivan Boesky and Michael Milken and the entire saga of the Junk Bond…Senator Levin of Michigan made history when he shouted at Goldman Sachs chairman Lloyd Blankfein “ your priority was to sell that shitty deal”… and yes, these crooks sold America lots of shitty deals… sorry for the French “ merd”. They are fleecing the poorest of the poor in Bingo Games so they can fund settlers to commit fraud and throw Palestinians out of their homes in Jerusalem… Yes, these are the kinds that control our Congress and national security…

    • wolf  July 18, 2013 at 10:47 am

      Sad but true. The actual financial cost of supporting Israel pales in comparison to the cost of having tribal members control the private, for-profit central bank known as the Federal Reserve, and having tribal members in total control of Amerika’s government, Hollywood and mainstream media, academia, healthcare, and legal system. The parasite has just about killed its host…and it’s all over save the gnashing of teeth.

      Who cares about the worthless fiat currency it is costing to support IsRaHell. Look at what it’s cost Amerikans in terms of loss of Liberty, loss of value of the dollar, loss of opportunity for our children, loss of prestige amongst the other nations of the world, and on and on. The cost has been incalculable. It has cost us everything our forefathers fought for. Chalk another one up to Der Weltenfeind.

    • Brian  July 18, 2013 at 12:02 pm

      Good comments!

    • PallMall  July 18, 2013 at 6:40 pm

      The “private, for-profit central bank known as the Federal Reserve” is, in fact, 12 district banks–there is NO one central bank–owned by the commercial banks in their district.

      It is the Federal Reserve system.

      Each district, or regional, bank requires capitalization of 3% per bank as payment for its shares, and the district Federal Reserve Bank pays 6% of that ORIGINAL BASIS, not the subsequent value of the shares, each year to each commercial bank shareholder as a dividend. Within the entire Federal Reserve system, that amounts to a payout annually of 1.5-1.7% of total Federal Reserve revenues to all shareholders within the system. (Google the annual report.) Each bank, regardless of its size or its payment under the national charter, has one vote.

      “tribal members” do not control the Federal Reserve, as much as you might want to believe it. It helps to get your facts straight.

      Congress has the 100% responsibility and right to change anything in the Federal Reserve charter mañana. But since you don’t understand how it works, you (“The People”) don’t know how to inform your congressman what you want done to change it.

    • wolf  July 18, 2013 at 7:00 pm

      Oh yeah, let’s parse words. You know damn well what I mean. Or maybe you get a bonus check for defending them. And like “informing” our bought-and-paid-for congressmen is going to change anything? Get real.

      “Ben Shalom Bernanke, the chairman of the Federal Reserve System, is another Hebrew-speaking scion of the Jewish Theological Seminary of New York City, like Michael Chertoff and Alvin K. Hellerstein.

      How can it be that the sons of a very small group of uneducated Jews from Eastern Europe, who immigrated to the Bronx in the early 1900s, now exercise a great deal of control over a nation of 250 million non-Jews? If you were to ask a Zionist Jew from the Jewish Theological Seminary why they seek to control America, they would probably say: “Because we can.”

      Growing up, Bernanke attended the extremist Zionist summer camp (Ramah) of the Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) where he was immersed for months in Zionist ideology – in Hebrew. During college in the early 1970s, Bernanke worked for a Jewish crime boss in South Carolina.”

      Yes the Jewish Banksters due control the Federal Reserve, I don’t care about the crap government documents contain. Don’t be fooled by words in government documents.

      The overwhelming evidence shows the Jewish Banksters control the Federal Reserve and no I’m not going to take time to publish the massive evidence here. Congress has responsibility for a lot of things, this makes the Jewish elites smile.

      The American people have to inform their congressman they don’t want Jewish Banksters or any Banksters controlling the Federal Reserve, they should simply demand the Federal Reserve gets shutdown.

    This is a little off topic but read this stunning article, excerpts from the article:

    Samantha Power made the pledge at her Wednesday confirmation hearing in the Senate. She is widely expected to replace US ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice.

    “The United States has no greater friend in the world than … Israel. We share security interests, we share core values, and we have a special relationship with Israel,” Power told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

    The longtime Obama confidante and the White House official even went on to attack the UN General Assembly and the UN Human Rights Council for supporting Palestinian people and condemning Israeli violations of their rights.

    “And just as I have done as President Obama’s UN adviser at the White House, I will stand up for Israel and work tirelessly to defend it,” she said.

    “I commit to you wholeheartedly to go on offense, as well as playing defense on the legitimation of Israel, and we’ll make every effort to secure greater integration of Israeli public servants in the UN system,” she said.

    She also pledged to oppose any efforts by the Palestinians to seek greater recognition in world bodies.

    On November 29, 2012, Palestinians won a UN General Assembly vote, which earned the status of non-member observer state for Palestine at the world body.

    “We need to deter the Palestinians in any way we can,” Power stressed.


    From Wikipedia:

    On July 4, 2008, Power married law professor Cass Sunstein, whom she met while working on the Obama campaign. They were married in the Church of Mary Immaculate, near Waterville on the Ring of Kerry in Power’s native Ireland. On April 24, 2009, she gave birth to their first child, Declan Power Sunstein. On June 1, 2012, she gave birth to their second child, a daughter, Rían Power Sunstein.

    Brian: She’s married to Cass Sunstein. On behalf of all the Palestinians, Obama thank you very much! Oh my.

    I believe you forgot something pretty important when it comes to Israel and the cost to the world.

    The U-Tax!

    We’re mostly unknowingly paying a tax to Israel on most things we buy, even pork and aluminum foil!

  15. Allesandro  July 18, 2013 at 6:26 am

    Just one example I found a few years ago was that the U.S. (American Taxpayers) supplied Israel’s military with refined fuel for everything from jeeps to jets, free to their doorstep. It was buried deep, deep down in some military appropriations bill, disguised but there. The cost at the time was something like $798 million.

    So the official numbers do not add in all the other contributions.

  16. Chandler  July 17, 2013 at 11:55 pm

    Anything to benefit American children, education, housing, living conditions, lower taxes, fixing our infrastructure, our government here in America refuses to do. They are more than eager to over tax us, collect their huge paychecks, and provide for their families among other rapes they commit of us each year.
    They will in no way give us a break large or small. The shape of some American families is shameful, and tragic. I couldn’t show my face in front of any TV camera if the people elected me to go to Washington and I did was join the Buffoonery Buffet and stuff myself with gratuities. What a pathetic performance of the congress and this president.
    I hope you make many congressional leaders think about what they are doing to the American people, their children and this nation. How can any of them hold their head up?
    Thank you Mr. Fetzer. You amaze me!
    Israel couldn’t do much if we did stop funding them. Why we don’t is a mystery, certainly not biblical.

  17. peter  July 17, 2013 at 11:49 pm

    Great article Jim Fetzer. This we will never hear from the “pop culture” media. Not only does Israel benefit from U.S. aid. It also benefits in the inflated prices by pretending to fight its “evil enemy’s” with the stake they have in pipelines and moving the oil. Saudi, Qatar, israel, they all benefit. And all benefit from the facade of conflict.

    • leecahalan  July 18, 2013 at 7:00 am

      If the Palestinians were cut off of all US aid I would be in favor of a substantial reduction in aid to Israel. About at least 1/2 the funds shipped there now. If anyone can find a true number on that figure that is. Most of the reason for aid to Israel is the Palestinian culture of suicide: they perpetually raise children into poverty in order to have a large contingency of disposable warriors. It’s sick really.

      And you can’t move the Palestinians even to a much nicer area! They enjoy being victims and gaining world attention through their despicable endless war/people/breeding tactics. The Palestinians would not move to the most prime real estate in the world if you gave away the land and PAID them. Instead they have chosen their rotten slums of Gaza. Slums that they created themselves by the way.

      To be fair I wouldn’t move to Israel either. More barbed wire in that country than you saw in the former East Berlin. But at least the Israelis have a real economy. Something devoted to productivity as opposed to pure victimhood. Yo can’t really say that about the so-called Palestinians. Right Sami?

      Granted I would like to see far less Israeli influence in US politics. It is deplorable that they apparently chose to create the false flag attacks of 9/11. But it is just these same kinds of desperate measures that a desperate people will take when their backs are to the wall. In that respect I grudgingly admire the Israelis.

      They are able to make the “hard choices” Like in the film Sophie’s Choice where the woman had to choose which of her children would live or die. We should support Israel but with strings attached. Understand the sheer insanity of the Palestinians who oppose them and breed endless war chattel.

    • Brian  July 18, 2013 at 9:20 am

      Dear Sayan, I wonder if you were laughing yourself silly when you wrote this idiotic text.

    • wolf  July 18, 2013 at 10:25 am

      I hope so, cuz I am in hysterics reading it. What a load of bollocks.

    • PallMall  July 18, 2013 at 6:45 pm

      “Understand the sheer insanity of the Palestinians who oppose them and breed endless war chattel.”

      The absolute height of historical ignorance. Palestinians who oppose them? Palestine is their land, and the Israelis are occupying it. They ethnically cleansed 750,000 Palestinians in 1948–literally drove them into the sea. Read Israeli historian Benny Morris.

      Your morals and ethics are appalling.

    • leecahalan  July 19, 2013 at 12:31 am

      It’s just pure logic though most here fail to see the PEACEFUL result of my words.

      We have GIVEN the Palestinians on average somewhere around 3/4’s of a BILLION dollars per year since from way back. If we go back twenty years or so and add it all up? You could BUY Beverly Hills a couple times over. Again: just pure math & LOGIC though you refuse to see. Okay the Israelis have received a lot more money but my point is well taken:

      What is so special about either country that anyone should chose to kill or die over it? Answer: Nothing.

      As for myself, I was removed from my “homeland” of Oregon back in 1964. And while I could go back to visit and/or stay there anytime I had enough to money to go let’s turn the tables around. Let’s say that, like exiled Palestinian ‘refugees’ I could never go back to Oregon. That it had been taken over by a religion rival to my own and I was forbidden to return..

      Yet no matter how much I loved my home state I would NEVER launch a rocket at those who occupy my former state. And let’s be honest: Oregon is a MUCH NICER place than either West Bank or the god awful slums of Gaza.

      So what is worth “defending” there? Nothing that I can see. Give the Palestinians at least a half decent place to move to. Perhaps Africa or Saudi Arabia. Just make sure there is plenty of water and arable land. Then we can be done with this silly, shameful war.

      Can you really look at the West Bank or Gaza and then tell me straight to my face that there is any worthwhile reason to kill or be killed over it? Again, if I were exiled from Oregon it would be a far worse punishment than being forbidden from entering the slums of Gaza. But I surely wouldn’t spill blood in revenge over it. Not mine nor anyone else’s.

      Those that continue to buy into the victimization of the Palestinians are pretty much in the same league as war profiteers like Lockheed, Boeing or Halliburton. Just like Dick Cheney each has a vested interest in continuing the bloodshed between Israel and Palestine. Whether they sell bombs or peddle articles blaming the Israelis and describing the Palestinians as “poor innocent victims” It’s all B/S.

      Just pure logic folks. Let me know if I’m going too fast for ya. Thanks!

    • Charlotte NC Bill  July 19, 2013 at 2:46 am

      Exaactly what part of: “the non-semite khazars fm E. Europe stole palestine”do you not understand? Modern Talmudia is really just that: an army of Khazars that created a country through massacres, ethnic cleansing, targeted assassinations and terrorism..”Israel” breeds people w/an ethno-supremacist mentality that enables them to do these terrible things…continually to other people..As such, Talmudia is a burden: morally, financially and even strategically…Got it?

    • peter  July 19, 2013 at 10:36 am

      With all due respect it appears to be israel that utilizes the victimization of itself to exert its control of the palestinians. Israel has been caught before manipulating members of congress and the senate, by use of blackmail and bribery. So when I hear of rockets being fired in retaliation I can’t help but be suspicious of who actually fired them or what bribe they took to do so. The result is usually another excursion into the west bank or an increase in “settlements” perpetuating the global conflict. It makes me wonder if Israel wants peace at all or perhaps more excuses to expand its occupied territory. As far as cheney is concerned he is another “fuse” like all neocons. Funny thing about him was his response to someone trying to blackmail him was to butcher them. It worked better previously with Clinton though. So that’s the best the U.S. has? I think not.

    • Charlotte NC Bill  July 19, 2013 at 2:37 am

      Modern Talmudia was settled by non-semite khazars who were, really, an army that created a country through terrorism, massacres, ethnic cleansing, targeted assassinations….the “Israelis” breed people with an ethno-supremacist mindset that enables them to do all these terrible things…Talmudia has to go…Their 100 times worse than the German National Socialists…..Oh, and there was no “holocaust”..Got it?

      Idiotic. You (we) can’t say who did it until there is an investigation that proves definitively HOW it was done. Pointing fingers before the facts of the deed are substantiated–and they are not–is the mark of a fool.

      PallMall: It’s quite humorous to see an idiot call someone else a fool. And if you need facts about Israel involvement in 9/11, stick around this site and try something radical: reading. I know you’re handlers don’t encourage it and you might have greater difficulty paying your efficiency rent but, on the plus side, you might rise above the intellectual level of an amoeba.
      Go away Israeli boot licker!

  19. Brian  July 18, 2013 at 5:44 pm

    Our best chance is to go after Israel with 911 but unfortunately the Jewish Zionists are extremely powerful on the national level due to their control of the major media, Hollywood, national organizations and politicians, the best way is going after Israel on the local level and on the Internet but this approach will take a long time. My guess is the Israeli stranglehold on the United States will go away after our economy collapses and we are no longer any use to Israel. However, a rebuilt economy will just bring back our Israeli puppeteers. Sigh.
