US 2018 Budget Guarantees Foreign Assistance Only for Israel, State Dept. Says

Sputnik – 16.03.2017

WASHINGTON – US foreign assistance to nations other than Israel is not yet determined in the fiscal year 2018 Department of State budget, acting spokesperson Mark Toner said in a briefing on Thursday.

Israel secured $3.1 billion in foreign funding in President Donald Trump’s 2018 budget that was made public on Thursday.

“Our assistance to Israel is a cutout on the budget, and that’s guaranteed,” Toner told reporters. “With respect to other assistance levels — foreign military assistance levels, those are still being evaluated and decisions are going to be made going forward.”

Toner pointed out the State Department was still at the beginning of the budget process and would consider US treaty obligations when determining assistance.

Last September former President Barack Obama’s administration signed a 10-year, $38 billion memorandum of understanding that represents the single largest bilateral military pledge of defense aid in US history.

The agreement included $33 billion in foreign military financing and $5 billion for missile defense from fiscal year 2019-2028.

    • “Once we squeeze all we can out of the United States, it can dry up it can dry up and blow away”…..Benjamin Netanyahu 2002…………

      “I want to tell you something very clear: Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it”…….Ariel Sharon Oct 3, 2001

      Israel plays America like a harp, pushes you around, Spy’s on you, and treats your Presidents with contempt, and you still fight their wars, give them Billions of $’s in aid, and meekly accept their arrogance……..WHY?………(They’ve probably got “dirt” on everyone in the Congress)

    • @FarmerDave…
      As a disgusted American I ASK YOU “Why are these American skumbags VOLUNTEERING TO FIGHT FOR ISRAEL???” Let’s get to the ROOT OF THE PROBLEM OK? When they come back in body bags, when they get killed by the sowing they have reaped I SAY JUSTICE HAS BEEN SERVED. Why don’t the AMERICAN MILITARY TURN ON ISRAEL AND DESTROY THEM??? Because they are cowards and hired mercenaries that’s why. CRY ME A RIVER OR STAND UP AND POINT TO THE REAL PROBLEM.

      • I would venture to say that many veterans had no choice. By design our politicians have destroyed our economy and those with families are desperate for any form of income. They also had no idea that they were fighting for the jews until after they had enlisted and been sent to war. I explained all this in detail to my son before he enlisted, but it is talking to a brick wall until they learn it for themselves. He is now a believer but it is too late, unless he wants to flee to Canada. We have not done a good enough job of enlightening the young and the poor in this country. Ask a inner-city poor minority about fighting for Israhell.. He will look at you with a blank stare. They watch CNN, not alternative news sites.

        • There’s always the GI Rights Hotline and the possibility of getting CO status. Canada is a no go.

          Being ‘poor’ is an excuse to become a mercenary? To kill innocent civilians of foreign lands? To torture innocent men of Muslim beliefs? To INVADE sovereign countries and overthrow (coup) legitimate elected leaders of said countries? I could go on and on. My point is…as long as American men and wo(men) love their weapons that are designed to murder, and who are trained to murder, and who execute murder, as long as they are seeking some kind of idolatrous glory, they have no grounds to complain of their ultimate self made fate. Some call it karma, I call it REAPING. My only sympathies are to the millions of Native Americans, Japanese, Germans, Vietnamese, Laotians, Filipinos, Cambodians, Koreans, Central and South Americans, Libyans, Afganis, Iraqis, Syrians, Yemenis, Palestinians, Iranians, and too many to list…who the US Military/CIA/Israel/Mossad/NATO/Defense(?)Contractors who are borne from Retired Military has murdered in cold blood without conscience, without mercy, without even a shred of remorse or shame and have left in their destructive wake a planet so polluted and filled with blood…THAT these so called VETS are crying for some kind of justice? The JUSTICE lays in their repentance and their choice between a PAYCHECK/DEATH or being so called ‘poor’ (but having a clean conscience and clean hands). The love of greed and weapons and destruction will dictate any ones fate…and leave a trail of blood and an uninhabitable planet as their conscience. If the VETS don’t want to be eaten by the Beast…then don’t sacrifice to it. It is a matter of time (which is now) that this REAPING will come to all Americans…to receive the exact amount that they have dished out…to the young, old, newborn, elderly, and the homes that they live in. I can’t rap my mind around the evil rationale of a murderer that uses the god ‘Defense’ as their Saviour.

            • How about reading my entire post rather than being a freeking asswipe. No I don’t condone what has been done by our troops, but the “majority” know not what they do until it is too late. So,, you are a snowflake that wants to disarm America (“as long as American men and wo(men) love their weapons that are designed to murder”) That is your quote. . All I can say is come and get mine, and you will get your ounce of lead. Screw off.
