Were you aware the Democrats are very pro-Palestine? Are you aware three of the leading Democratic presidential candidates recently endorsed a new policy? They want to cut U.S. military aid to Israel. Their position is our aid should be conditional on Israel embracing Pro-Palestinian policies.
American socialists like their Muslim backers want genocide in Israel.
The Pro-Palestine Candidates
Bernie Sanders demands Israel fundamentally change its approach to Gaza. The Palestinian Authority has control of Gaza. Hamas, which pledges genocide to Jews, controls the Palestinian Authority. Sanders’s position is that U.S. military aid to Israel should go right now into humanitarian aid in Gaza. Israeli officials believe such moves enable Hamas to import more weapons and lead to another war.
Pete Buttigieg calls for cutting aid if Israel annexes the West Bank. Maybe that is empty rhetoric as Israel has no plans to do so but… Lieawatha Warren’s position is military aid should be cut if Israel does not accept the “two-state solution.”
Why do candidates for the presidency feel free to interfere in the internal politics of another nation? Isn’t that how we’ve gotten into war the world over, time and again? Why are these candidates supporting positions favoring people who hate America?
Why are these three abandoning one of America’s staunchest allies? Why are they supporting positions which lead to the genocide of the Jews in Israel? None of the candidates announced demands for the change of any Palestinians position. Tell me how their position stabilizes the Middle East. We know or we should have known the Middle East is in the middle of the genocide of all non-Muslims.
The statements show the extent of the malignancy of anti-Israel sentiment in the Democratic Party. The calls for aid cuts are at odds with the longstanding strategic rationale for military aid to Israel. That policy never had the intent to promote peace with the Palestinians or the two-state solution. If you are non-Muslim you have a reason for concern.
U.S. aid to Israel largely takes the form of credit. Israel must use the credit in the U.S. market. There they buy aircraft and arms from American defense companies. The process long predates the concept of a two-state solution or peace process. It is concerned with promoting the broader U.S. interest in regional peace and security. Peace and security are valid goals… right?
From creation in the 1940s through the 1973 Yom Kippur war, Israel fended for itself. The absence of superpower backing invited her Muslim neighbors to think the numerically small Israel vulnerable. Israel could be defeated on the battlefield.
The effects of the state vs. state wars rippled outward harming American interests. They threatened to draw in Cold War rivals. In 1973 the defeated Arab states imposed an oil embargo. Its intent was to damage the U.S. economy. Muslims hate all non-muslims. They work continuously, actively, to make the world one, in submission to Allah.
The American strategy to stop the wars was to make Israel a less attractive target. The U.S. military aid started with the 1973 war resupply. It has been the single-most effective U.S. policy toward the Middle East. With America now in Israel’s corner, the Arab states are compelled to think twice before attempting to wipe the Jewish State off the map. That led to Egypt signing a peace treaty with Israel in 1979, and Jordan did the same in 1994. Are You for Israel or Palestine?
Benefits of the current policy
Other benefits to the United States flowed from military aid to Israel. The Jewish state was fielding advanced U.S. weaponry against Arab states. The Arab states were armed with Soviet weapons. Regional skirmishes were turned into morale-killers for Moscow.
In one air campaign in June 1982, Israeli F-15s and F-16s shot down 88 Syrian Soviet MiGs. Israel lost a single F-16. Battles like this clarified for the world which side was likely to prevail in the Cold War.
Today, Gulf Arab states are drawing closer to an increasingly powerful Israel. They seek protection from Iranian aggression. This is another way U.S. military aid maintains Israel’s “qualitative military edge.” That, in turn, is promoting American interests. Perhaps, more importantly, it decreases the likelihood that the United States will be called upon to directly protect regional allies. It keeps America fro further foreign involvement.
Warren, Sanders, and Buttigieg did not acknowledge this history. Perhaps they are ignorant of the strategic benefits. Maybe they are just taking a lot of Muslim money. The Democratic Party views Israel largely through the lens of the Palestinians. That is with animosity even hatred. It was only a matter of time before they began to demand all aspects of U.S.-Israel relations be subordinated to the politics of hate and death. Are You for Israel or Palestine?
