Free Beacon: The Trump administration is considering forcing Israel to hand back some $75 million in U.S. aid dollars that were awarded by Congress following a hotly contested effort by the Obama administration to financially limit the U.S.-Israel military alliance, according to senior Congressional sources and others familiar with the situation.

Congress allocated Israel an additional $75 million in U.S. aid last year, bringing the total package to around $38 billion, despite attempts by the Obama administration to restrict Israeli efforts to lobby Congress in favor of greater funding for several key military projects.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is said to be spearheading the effort to request Israel give back the additional funding, arguing that Israel must stick to the letter of the former Obama administration’s (Memorandum of Understanding) MOU, despite objections by Congress, sources told the Free Beaconmore …

Opinion: Our Post from August 30: “America’s Intifada Against Israel” (here) was in the top 5 most read posts this year.

“The Tillerson report rebukes Israel for the absence of peace, declaring a “lack of hope” as a “driver” for any Arab Palestinian violence.”

Right there… is trouble. Right there… is a complete lack of biblical and historical awareness of the turmoil that characterizes the 21st century’s continuation of Genesis 27:41.

Esau has the whole world fooled.

I cannot help but repeat myself. There is no such thing as a Palestinian people. The blood feud is over the land that God gave to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and their descendants after them 4000 years ago, which will lead to two wars and the culmination of the church age leading to the tribulation.

  • Psalm 83
  • Ezekiel 38

Tensions in the ME have been building to a breaking point since last month’s #2 ranking NoKo official, Kim Yong Nam, visited Iran for 10 days, followed by last week’s bombing of an Iranian missile factory.

Now with this second highly charged US move against Israel in 2 months, no one should be amazed at the disasters that have been hitting the US in the way of storms.

It is written:I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

  1. I was going to start by saying, “What a shame” of the US government. Then, I thought, to be a bit more precise … “What a sham!”

    People can try all they wish to convince themselves into believing that Donald Trump is a great Christian, but at the end of the day what has he done to show that? “They will know we are Christians by our love.” “Demanding” Israel return the money GIVEN to them by a so-called “Christian nation” is certainly not even close to being “love”. Hate, spite, deceit, distrust, and contempt, are some of the words I would use to properly describe the current US government.

    Now, some would say that many of the horrible things going on in the US government is not Trump’s fault, and that “he is being tricked” or “his hands are tied”. Maybe nobody has told him this yet, but being president means HE gets to actually make decisions. Donald Trump had absolutely no problem several weeks ago when he proudly pledged to continue giving (what Trump calls) the “Palestinian government” $300 million a year to pay the families of the terrorists. He has also had no problem making the decision to pay the “Palestinian” government an additional $800 million split for other needs as well.

    Trump is not much different than Obama when you really think about it. Trump is not his original name. He claims to be Christian yet shows otherwise on a regular basis. He has shown himself to be anti-Israel while claiming to be a friend of Israel. He surrounds himself with very wealthy Arabs who hate Israel. He strongly supports the so-called “Palestinians”. Trump promised a wall to be built, Obama promised Guantanamo to be closed. Both have allowed their annoying and corrupt family members to run part of the show. I could really go on.

    Otrumpa 2020? Start praying!

  2. Tillerson, really?? And from a so called Israel friendly administration. Perhaps the curses of Genesis 12:1-3 have begun – Harvey, Irma, maybe Jose, and the smoldering western US. How is this country going to “rebuild” with its mountains of personal debt and governmental debt? Harvey, Irma, and western wildfires add up to over $300 billion. Congress haggles over relief funding of only 5% of this total – $15 billion. Most didn’t have flood insurance, and what few that do are facing a flood insurance program that is already $25 billion in dept. Well known is the fact that most Americans have only a pittance of personal savings on which to start over. Who is going to sponsor more debt on top of existing debt not paid, particularly, if you are trying to rebuild in the same hazardous area?
