Shocking Revelation: Israel Has Cost US Taxpayers $1.6 TRILLION Dollars Since 1973!

The United States economy is on the verge of total collapse, and yet the US Government is continuing to send BILLIONS of hard earned and desperately needed at home US Taxpayer dollars to the criminal state of Israel, so that the Zionist Jewish entity can continue with its long term goals of brutal expansion into its neighbour's territories at the expense of the innocent residents of those territories! It is absolutely disgusting that the American people are kept in the dark about how their own government bends over backwards to make sure that money flows freely to that criminal state, while they themselves are destitute and living in the streets of that once great nation!

Now comes a new report from www.yaliban.com, that states that the United States has in fact given roughly 1.6 TRILLION DOLLARS of hard earned American taxpayer dollars to the criminal state of Israel since 1973! Here is that report for my own readers to view in its entirety:

Israel has cost the U.S. about $1.6 trillion since 1973


By: Ron Estes

Can Israel afford to continue to occupy Palestinian territory? “Israel’s ongoing occupation of the Palestinian territories is damaging the economy of the Jewish state,” said a report published by Adva Center for Information on Equality and Social Justice in Israel.

The overall conclusion is that “the prolonged conflict with the Palestinians undermines sustainable economic growth, burdens the budget, limits social development, absorbs most of the energies of the political leadership calls into question the legitimacy of the actions of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and isolates Israel internationally,” the paper summarizes.

“Between 1989 and 2010, the Ministry of Defense received budget increments earmarked for the Palestinian conflict in the amount of some $12 billion, a sum that exceeds the 2009 budgetary outlay for schools and institutes of higher education,” the report contends.

The Zionist dream of turning all the land of Palestine into a Jewish state may be too costly to sustain.

The Israeli occupation does more than just damage Israel’s enonomy. It also costs Israel a respected place in the international community. The occupation is a violation of United Nations Security Council resolution 242, and thus puts Israel in violation of international law. Building settlements on that land is a violation of article 49 of the 4th Geneva Convention. Each breach of articles of the 4th Convention is considered a war crime before the International Criminal Court in the Hague.

The Israeli reputation of violating international law has spurred a growing international movement to mount campaigns of Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel. Joining the movement are boycotts by UK labor unions, and a South African Trade Unions BDS campaign. The Israeli Journalist Federation has been dismissed from the International Federation of Journalists, the Spanish have placed an academic boycott of Ariel University because it is located on occupied Palestinian territory in the West Bank, French Solidaires Industries have mounted a BDS campaign against Israel, as have the Belgian Trade Union Federation, the Indian Cochin Port Union, and Basque trade unions in Spain.

U.S. administrations from that of Nixon to Obama have consistently opposed the settlements as obstacles to peace in the Middle East, and Palestinian administrations, most recently that of President of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas, and the Arab League, have refused to engage in peace talks with Israel as long as building in Israeli settlements continues.

As the American government seeks to end the four-decade Jewish settlement enterprise and foster a Palestinian state, it is ironic that U.S. aid supports Israeli financial ability to build and support the settlements, and the American Treasury helps sustain the settlements through tax breaks on donations to support them.

Since 1973, Israel has cost the United States about $1.6 trillion. If divided by today’s population, that is more than $5,700 per person. Israel receives about $3 billion in direct foreign assistance each year, which is roughly one-fifth of America’s entire foreign aid budget. In per capita terms, the United States gives each Israeli a direct subsidy worth about $500 per year.

On the other hand, the settlement movement has cost Israel $100 billion in the past 40 years, or $2.5 billion a year; roughly equal to the U.S. aid package to Israel.

Therefore, one could make the point that cessation of U. S. aid to Israel could solve many problems, for the U.S., the Arab world and Israel. Israel would have to abandon the settlements, Middle East peace talks would flourish, Israel could restore its economic growth and reestablish itself as a respected member of the international community. Arab anger over the Palestinian occupation, which foments anti-American sentiment, would subside. It would also reduce Al Qaeda’s ability to exploit that anger and mobilize support.

NTS Notes: One factor that is missing in all of this is that since the inception of the Symington Amendment of 1976 that absolutely BANS any aid to any state that possesses nuclear weapons in violation of the NPT treaties, ALL funding that has been shipped to Israel since that date is illegal and should have been stopped automatically back in 1976. Therefore all aid to Israel since 1976 has been illegal, and the US Government itself has been criminally violating their own laws, like the slaves to Israel that they truly are, just to satisfy their masters in Tel Aviv!

The American public MUST be brought up to speed about the truth about how their own government has bled their coffers illegally to give money to Israel. I cannot even fathom what an additional $1.6 Trillion dollars could do, or could have done for the last 37 years to recharge and rebuild the US economy and its infrastructure. Funding for the criminal state of Israel must be stopped immediately!

More to come
