81% of Americans Oppose “Aid” to Israel

Some 80.8 percent of Americans oppose the $38 billion in “aid” that the Jewish lobby-controlled U.S. Government last week pledged to Israel, an IRmep poll fielded by Google Consumer Surveys has found.

At the same time, the Jewish lobby will pour money into campaign funds of politicians who support this “aid” package, while the controlled media will demonize any candidate for office who dares to oppose it.

The poll found that the vast majority of Americans want the $38 billion “aid” pledge to be redirected toward other priorities, such as caring for vets, education, and lowering national debt.

The “aid” deal, signed last week in Washington D.C., is the single largest aid package ever given by the U.S.—even though Israel is a wealthy nation in its own right.

The majority of the spending is for “Foreign Military Financing” (FMF) to provide Israel with advanced and upgraded jet fighters, to continue developing Israel’s missile defense systems and to purchase weapons—even though Israel has a booming arms industry of its own and sold $5.7 billion of arms in 2015 alone.

According to a Fact Sheet issued by the White House on the “aid” package, the “multifaceted cooperation between the United States and Israel has reached unprecedented levels. This is particularly true with regard to the security of Israel.”

The Fact Sheet goes on to boast that “Under President Obama to date, Israel has received a record amount of Foreign Military Financing (FMF) funds” and that “Israel remains the leading recipient worldwide of U.S. FMF.  Since President Obama took office, the United States has provided Israel over $23.5 billion in FMF assistance (from 2009–2016).”

All the aid put together during this time “amounts to $8.5 million in FMF funding alone provided to Israel each day,” the Fact Sheet continues.

Furthermore, “President Obama has also provided Israel with unprecedented levels of missile defense funding,” because “In addition to FMF funding, under President Obama’s leadership, the United States has provided over $3 billion in missile defense funding for programs and systems for Israel. “

Since 2011, the Fact Sheet says, “the United States has provided Israel with over $1.3 billion for the Iron Dome system alone,” and in “FY2016 Israel received $487 million in missile defense support, including for David’s Sling, Arrow-3, and Iron Dome.”

“With over $26 billion in total assistance during President Obama’s tenure in office, Israel has been able to acquire new advanced capabilities to bolster its security,” the Fact Sheet asserts, before continuing to say that “In addition to FMF and missile defense funds, the United States under President Obama has provided other forms of valuable support to Israel:

“Signed by President Obama in December 2014, the U.S.–Israel Strategic Partnership Act authorizes $3 million to be spent on research pilot programs between Israeli government agencies and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

“The Department of Defense’s chemical-biological defense response units work with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) to provide equipment and training.

“The Department of Defense has sold or provided free of charge millions of dollars’ worth of U.S. excess defense articles to the IDF, supporting their need for spare parts, weapons, and simulators to maintain their current fleets.

“Since FY14, the United States has allocated more than $47 million on research and development task plans for tunnel detection and mapping technologies.”

The IRmep poll has however found that 80.8 percent of the U.S. adult internet user population says they would redirect the proposed spending toward other priorities.

Caring for veterans (20.7 percent) was their top priority, followed by education spending (20.1 percent), and paying down the national debt (19.3 percent).

Rebuilding U.S. infrastructure was favored by 14.9 percent, while funding a Middle East peace plan received 5.8 percent of support.

Only 16.8 percent said the $38 billion of pledged foreign aid should be spent on Israel.

According to a report on the poll published on the antiwar.com website, despite “an appearance of finality, the aid package may only be a guaranteed ‘floor’ of official U.S. financial commitment to Israel because “South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham has pledged to legislate more aid to Israel than negotiated in the expiring fiscal year 2009–2018 MOU [Memorandum of Understanding] as well as the new MOU.”

Significantly, the antiwar.com article goes on to say, “Campaign advisors have already indicated a Trump administration would not be limited by Obama administration MOU covenants” and a “Hillary Clinton administration, heavily influenced at all levels by pro-Israel donors and campaign officials, would also be highly unlikely to veto future congressional demands for aid far in excess of MOU caps.”

  1. Maybe the Muslim influence in the US (and perhaps show in the poll) is far greated than expected? As the Quaran constantly reminds the Muslim, a natural hatred of Israel and its people is demanded.

    1. Instead of giving all that money to the parasitic entity of Israel. they need to invest into the US economy. Leave those trouble makers alone and let them defend those cowards by themselves. Israel is destroying this country.

    2. The Qur’an (a.k.a. Koran) most definitely does not “demand a natural hatred of Israel and its people”. It was written centuries before the state of Israel even existed. (Btw I am not a Muslim but a Catholic).
      As for the enormous financial aid to Israel, that money should be spent within the US to improve conditions for veterans health for the elderly, schools, help the homeless, etc. etc.

  2. Israel should stand on their own two feet, quit interfering in world affairs and only receive aid from evil bastards of their own kind such as Soros etc.

  3. The 3.5 aid was converted into 4.5 billion dollars a year by Obama who hates Israel so much. The news media does not tell you that Israel gets also 10 billion in LOAN GUARANTEES that are never repaid, They also get all kinds of military equipment including nuclear warheads , chemical and biological weapons which they use on the Palestinians on a regular basis plus many other niceties. People do not know that Washington is in TOTALCONTROL of the Judaic Criminal Mafia to help Israel.

  5. Yet according to the law, it is illegal to send US taxpayer’s money to any nation who will not sign the NPT ~ Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty. Further, The Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 was amended by the Symington Amendment (Section 669 of the FAA) in 1976. It banned U.S. economic, and military assistance, and export credits to countries that deliver or receive, acquire or transfer nuclear enrichment technology when they do not comply with IAEA regulations and inspections. This provision, as amended, is now contained in Section 101 of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA).

    The Glenn Amendment (Section 670) was later adopted in 1977, and provided the same sanctions against countries that acquire or transfer nuclear reprocessing technology or explode or transfer a nuclear device. This provision, as amended, is now contained in Section 102 of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA).

    Israel is the 6th highest nuclear power on Earth and has never signed the NPT, they have also not allowed the IAEA to inspect them. So tell me why our government illegally sends them BILLIONS of dollars a year of taxpayer money when it is CLEARLY stated that economic and military assistance is banned by law.

  6. It is easy to see the pervasiveness of Israel’s Mossad (if one knows where to look), arguably the most effective spy agency on the planet, please read “By Way of Deception” by Viktor Ostrowsky. From the Lavon affair (a “false flag” operation designed to draw the USA into a war with Egypt by making it look like Arabs bombed the U S interests section–a planted bomb exploded prematurely, exposing this as a Israeli planned and executed “incident”) to the deliberate attack on the USS Liberty (NOT “misidentification”, but another attempt to draw the USA into a war with Egypt and to hide the deliberate massacre of civilians in an Egyptian city, Deir Yassin), to Jonathon Pollard and NSA spying utilizing a company named Amdocs (which handles all US telephone billing records), you will find that Israel looks out for Israel’s interests ONLY. Normally, there is nothing wrong with a country looking out after it’s own interests, BUT Israel has a nasty habit of spying on(and setting up) its “friends”.
    Who the hell died and appointed Israel the “master” of the middle east?? Iran (and all other middle-eastern countries) KNOWS that any nuclear “discharge” would affect the whole middle east . . . Any country that possesses nukes is not stupid . . . Israel has over a hundred nukes, manufactured with stolen American classified technology, refuses inspections of its nuclear facilities and is, in general, a “pain in the ass” to the rest of the world, along with (blackmailed) “big brother” United States of America.
    It is no secret that the U S State Department is infested with dual-nationality Israeli-Americans who form (and foment) the bulk of our neocon “foreign policy” straight from Tel Aviv. In fact there are 40 or so congressmen and senators with dual-nationality “ties” to Israel.
    Most people are unaware that Israel holds a “Damocles sword” over the world. Any attack on Israel will be met with a nuclear device being detonated in a city of Israel’s choosing. Israel calls this the “Samson option” and is very real.

    Israel refuses to abide by IAEA guidelines concerning its nukes as its nukes are distributed around the world. Israel would not be able to produce all of them. No delivery systems are needed as Israel’s nukes are already “in place”. Look for another “false flag” operation with the blame being put on Iran. You can bet that some Iranian passports will be found in the rubble.

    Israel also threatens to detonate nuclear devices in several US cities, thanks to Dolphin-Class submarines sold (or was it given?) to Israel by Germany. Talk about total INSANITY; the so-called “Samson Option” is it.
