The infamous Israeli lobby group AIPAC has openly thanked president Obama, congress and the senate for their support and especially the financial military aid that continues to flow into Israel from the United States.
Despite the fact that most American taxpayers are unaware of the military aid that Israel receives, the US government sends roughly $8.5 Million worth of military aid to Israel, every single day.
A report earlier this year pointed out that the US government already plans on sending $3.1 billion in Foreign Military Financing (FMF) to Israel for the fiscal year 2013.
“The American Israel Public Affairs Committee on Thursday praised the Obama administration’s strong support for Israel’s self-defense, as well as the strong support members of Congress from both parties have given Israel amid the Gaza fighting.
“These statements demonstrate that America continues to firmly stand with Israel and her right to defend herself,” AIPAC said in a statement of its own Thursday.
The group particularly underscored US funding for the Iron Dome short-range missile defense systems which has thwarted over 130 recent rocket attacks since the start of Operation Pillar of Defense. “
People who support the aggression of the Israeli military such as the one who put together the aforementioned statement are insisting that the actions taken this week have been in “self-defense”.
Noam Chomsky has answered this claim by saying that “You can’t defend yourself when you are militarily occupying someone else’s land. Call it what you like, it is not self-defense.”
Many people from all over the world are protesting the recent aggression from the Israeli military, even many people within Israel.
The propaganda seems to be less effective this time around, but unfortunately the military support from the US continues to flow and many western governments continue to support this aggression.
