Suit against US/Israel Aid Advances

The potentially precedent-setting lawsuit against the U.S. Government for its blatantly illegal aid to Israel has advanced another step forward, the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy (IRmep) has announced.

A federal court judge has granted a motion amending the original lawsuit to include additional evidence of the defendant’s—the U.S. Government’s—unlawful activities.

Acting Israeli National Security Adviser Jacob Nagel (l) and U.S. Undersecretary of State Tom Shannon—both wearing U.S.-Israeli flag pins—during the Sept. 14 signing of the Memorandum of Understanding giving Israel $38 billion in U.S. military aid over a 10-year period. Photo credit IRmep.

According to a statement issued by IRmep, on November 1, 2016, federal judge Tanya Chutkan granted a motion to amend their August lawsuit that seeks to block U.S. foreign aid to Israel.

The IRmep statement read:

Our amended complaint adds the following items:

Executive Order 13526 prohibits classifying information as “secret” in order to engage in unlawful activities, in this case gagging information about Israel’s nuclear weapons program in order to provide massive foreign aid to Israel.

Timing of aid disbursement. Over the past decade Congress has included illegal [Memorandums of Understanding] MOU aid to Israel in December omnibus spending bills. The judge must issue an injunction before then. She must also block funding if additional bills seeking to provide aid beyond MOU amounts become law.

Former Nuclear Regulatory Commission Victor Gilinsky confirmed, in an analysis mentioning this lawsuit, that intelligence officials are near unanimous that the 1979 “Vela incident” was an Israeli nuclear weapons test.

How files similar to those sought by IRmep on Israel’s nuclear weapons are “disappearing” from UK national archives.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell’s leaked confirmation that Israel had 200 nuclear weapons.

New polls showing U.S. public opinion is against illegal aid to Israel.

That the U.S. State Department is unlawfully withholding the Bush and Obama administration 700+ page MOUs on aid to Israel from the public and IRmep.

The mere fact that the lawsuit—based on a 1976 U.S. law which forbids aid to any nuclear-armed state which has not signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)—is still alive, is an indication that the Jewish lobby has so far been unable to suppress it.

Israel is not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, but is a known nuclear power and recipient of U.S. aid. Most recently, the Jewish lobby-controlled U.S. government signed a new $3.8 billion per year “aid” deal to Israel, in open violation of the 1976 law once again.

The controlled media has, to no one’s surprise, almost completely suppressed news of the suit, and the granting of the amended motion.

Above: How the Jewish lobby works: Anti-Defamation League chief Jonathan Greenblatt, right, head of a so-called “civil rights” organization, was one of the enthusiastic attendees at the signing of the $38 billion handover to the Jews-only state of Israel. The Jewish state, which Greenblatt and the ADL of course support, has racially-based immigration and citizenship policies, and builds walls to keep out non-Jews—all policies which Greenblatt and the Jewish lobby opposes in America and all European nations.

An earlier article in the Washington Report on Middle Eastern Affairs referred to the newly-released Colin Powell emails in this way:

On September 16, 2016, State Department Spokesperson John Kirby responded to a reporter’s persistent questions about the legality of aid to Israel, given former Secretary of State Colin Powell’s newly leaked e-mails confirming that Israel had over 200 nuclear weapons pointed at Tehran.

Asked whether, under U.S. law, aid to Israel should be cut off since it is not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty, Kirby dodged and weaved, claiming he was unware of and would not discuss the implications of such “e-mail traffic.”

When pressed to comment on Israel’s possession of nuclear weapons, Kirby stated, “I’m certainly not going to discuss matters of intelligence from the podium, and I’m not—I have no comment on that.”

The concept that Israel’s nuclear weapons program is an “intelligence matter”—rather than common knowledge long in the public domain that should have policy implications—is a subterfuge that has been repeatedly used by U.S. administrations since Gerald Ford left office.

The Obama administration passed a secret gag order regulation under State Department classification guidelines in 2012 mandating criminal charges against any contractor or federal employee who dares mention Israel’s nuclear weapons.

Kirby followed the gag order to the letter. The huge, costly impact of the gag order on sunshine laws has provided standing for a lawsuit challenging not only the gag order as illegal, but also all U.S. aid to Israel.

  1. More confirmation – if any were needed – of just how devious and dangerous a threat Israel is to world peace.
    Jews needing aid ??? Whaaat ?
    And if it weren`t for leaks we`d still be totally oblivious re `US aid` and Israeli `non-existent` nuclear capabilities.
    America is said to be the `policeman` of the world. Just how safe are we when the bobby`s in bed with those seeking to destroy us.

    1. As an Israeli I totally agree. Israel does not need help. Israel has more than 90 billion dollars in foreign exchange reserves. Israel’s sovereign debt to GDP ratio is far better than the US, most of Europe and Japan. Israel’s annual budget which is about 90 billion far surpasses the 4 percent of the budget represented by the American aid. Further, American aid supresses local production of military hardware by shifting the acquisitions to the US. The availability of US foreign aid supressed the production of the Lavi air-superiority fighter which was slated to be Israel’s main aerial platform before the F16 became available. Israel does not need and does not deserve US foreign aid. In fact, its a political thing. US Jews feel better when Israel is a client state. Some Israeli politicians, mostly left-wing feel better as less-than-sovereign. I and many Israelis hope President Trump witholds aid and demands Israel pay for every purchase. Obviously Israel may then decide to look for other suppliers, such as France (most Israeli jets used to be French) or Russia.

  2. 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.

  3. Why are American politicians afraid of ending all foreign aid? Can it be that the vested interests skim off their imagined share of it? Israel is a rich criminal state, and its territorial aims have influenced American foreign policy, which is no policy.

    Remember the words of Harding: ‘Trade with all. Treaties with none.’
