I’m driving my car from work today and I’m listening to NPR as I always do so I can have an intelligent conversation after a day of listening to why patients have gone to the ER for a common cold. I’m listening to how America sent 205 Million dollars in 2010 to help build Israel’s Iron Dome defense system and an additional 70 Million last May. That’s right people 275 million dollars in 2 years. Now, as of to date, our tax dollars have helped to kill 115 and over 900 injured in the current retaliation over 3 dead Israelis. Now don’t misread what I am saying as killing is wrong, no matter who is doing it. This brings to mind the mentality that has plagued America since its conception starting with the Native Americans to the African Slaves up to the Irish immigrants and back again to the African Americans to now. It’s the Muslim that through an indoctrination that if you are not white then you are sub-human, expendable. Since when in any religion or any real moral person that it’s OK that 3 dead is equal to 115 dead and 900 wounded and counting equal?
Jews, Christians and Muslims books all preach eye for an eye. Yet we as Americans sit idly by and not so much as bat an eye and allow our government to use 275 million tax dollars to help aid in the blatant genocide of a people. Couldn’t that money be better spent here State side. Oh I know how about we take that money plus the billions being spent on the wars and the billions in aid to foreign countries and pay our debt to China before the Chinese repo men come to repossess America. But no, that won’t happen because as a conversation I had with a fellow American yesterday said, that the “bad things happening in the US is because America was founded on Judeo Christianity and it’s because we have turned our back on Israel.” REALLY ?!?
Two things come to mind when I read this from him. First, is the amount of money we send to Israel to help aid in the annihilation of Palestinians. Second, I guess he and millions of others haven’t read what our founding fathers wrote about what religion this country was founded on. Any one read the Treaty of Tripoli 1796? Where the first time out of only 3 that the House and the Senate unanimously voted yes without one no vote to the following Article 11 which says: “As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,—as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen [Muslims],—and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan [Muslim] nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.”
Well look at us now two wars in Iraq, one in Afghanistan. We help fund an ongoing campaign of violence in Palestine, have killed many civilians in Pakistan with our drone strikes, and it looks like we may be headed to Iran if Israel has their way. Isn’t our tax dollars being spent wisely? When will we wake up and hold our government accountable for the choices they make in regards to the allocation of our money. What? When it’s too late and no one has a job to pay taxes or maybe when all 1.6 billion Muslims are killed.
