Obama To Decrease Missile Defense Funding To Israel For Second Year In A Row
Pat Dollard ^ | 2/13/12 | Washington Free Beacon

Posted on 02/13/2012 7:09:31 PM PST by Nachum

For the second straight year, President Obama is seeking to decrease funding to joint U.S.-Israel missile defense programs.

Tucked within Obama’s 2013 budget proposal is a request to reduce the amount of money Israel receives for its critical missile defense systems by $6.3 million relative to the 2012 budget proposal. Among these defense systems are Arrow and David’s Sling, both of which are jointly operated with the U.S.

Publicly, the president has referred to himself as a stalwart champion of the U.S.-Israel military alliance. But administration efforts to reduce the amount of missile defense aid that Israel receives appear to be a growing trend in the president’s budget proposals.

And yet he wants to fund the Muslim Brotherhood with $800 million. And American Jews still support this clown.

That’s OK.

God is on Israel’s side. Who can be against them?

Obama must get members of Oath Keepers out of the military and law enforcement so they won’t have access to equal firepower when SHTF.

Very cold and calculated. If I had it my way, Muslim Brotherhood, zero and a kick in the @$$ ! Israel would be more than fully supported !

Re “God is on Israel’s side. Who can be against them?”

Let’s try about ONE BILLION-PLUS Moslems, Tens of millions of Communists (Russia, Cuba, Red China, No. Korea, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Ecuador, Naxalities in India, Nepal Reds, etc).

Let’s see: Israel a little over 6 Million People versus over a Billion. This ain’t David versus Goliath.

If it weren’t for Israels’ nukes, they would be another Holocaust graveyard by now.

We’re gonna need more than God to survive this one, but his help is always welcome.

“And yet he wants to fund the Muslim Brotherhood with $800 million. And American Jews still support this clown.”

Fund them, he militarized the Muslim Brotherhood and ensured their place on the world stage as a state power, while simultaneously surrounding Israel with their ilk.

No, Obama is far more nefarious than you suggest, he is putting the pieces in place for Israel’s demise....

Any of of our Jewish brothers and sisters who support Obama will have blood on their hands....

November! Faster please!

Heard today Obama has $800 million set aside for the scArab Spring. His heart is in Egypt( bondage). God will protect Israel even if they had just sticks and stones. Closer to Ezekial 38-39? I will always pray for Israel, support when I can and would if younger fight with them. It’s tragic to be watching ally after ally falling away from us but losing Israel will curse America for good.

He is transfering the money from Israel to the muslims.

But what else would a muslim do?

American Jews voted for him in large numbers.Blacks voted for him in large numbers.Self hating White Libers voted for him in large numbers. Parasites and traitors to America voted for him.Why did they vote for him? Each group had a different reason. But each group except for the Jews had a common thread; hatered of America or to put it more clealy, envy of those who have worked to better themselves and their station in life. The Jews? They voted for him simply because he is a Democrat.

And each group is poised to give him their vote again come November.

I would say that he is making progress on that goal. He has eliminated his competition in Congress.Anyone who expects the Republicans to oppose him is living in fantasy land. I was one of those,but, I am no longer disillusioned. At this point in time, we no longer have three separate independent branches of Government.

My friends, you don't need to do nation building in Israel. We're already built. You don't need to export democracy to Israel. We've already got it. You don't need to send American troops to defend Israel. We defend ourselves. - Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, to a Joint Session of Congress, May 24, 2011

Six point three million dollars out of $202 million in annual missile defense aid, THREE percent, and people are getting bent out of shape?

Iron Dome works now, and is deployed, so we don't need to fund further development, not that they couldn't afford it themselves in the first place. The Arrow III is well on the way to deployment as well.

Six point three million? Maybe they can fire a dozen unionized garbage men and come up with the money that way.

Instead of getting bent about a lousy $6.9 million not going to a foreign country which can afford it already, people should be talking about the nearly $1 billion in cuts that the Missile Defense Agency is set to take in 2013, to include shelving the SBX radar by cutting its budget from $176 million to $9.7 million, as well as major cuts to THAAD, Aegis, GMD, and PAC-3.

No, you don't. Doesn't mean that Israel shouldn't defend itself, though. Doesn't mean that Obama isn't on the side of the Evil One, either.

All of these cuts are atrocious. Iran is developing nujkes. Teh Saudis promise their own response. But Obama cuts defense. And the American people see nothing of this treason because of the media, and their own sloth. The world is burning, but I can watch idiots sing on “reality TV”.
