Shattering the Myth of US Aid to Israel

This article addresses issues that American Israel haters, their Arab and Muslim supporters (Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Linda Sarsour, CAIR, etc.), and the main stream fake media, never obviously bring to the attention of the American people.

As always, I deal with Facts not concocted Lies and Myths propagated by malevolent authors and so called ‘experts’ and pundits.

Let me start with the most relevant item of Truth:

Not a single American soldier has died fighting to defend Israel in the last 73 years, since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. Not one.

Tragically, in the same period of time, tens of thousands of American soldiers have died or got wounded either fighting for or against Arabs and or Muslims from Afghanistan to Iran; from Kuwait to Yemen, from Iraq to Lebanon and from Libya to Somalia. What an incredible waste of precious American lives, defending the very peoples that hate them.

Adding insult to injury, the billions of dollars of US tax payers given as aid to Arab and Muslim peoples are totally squandered since Muslims – by their Sharia compliant belief system of Islam – have absolutely no loyalty to or appreciation for the generous and compassionate American people.

They are told by their Imams and leaders, that the aid received from non Muslims is not charity but Jizya (compulsory penalty paid by non Muslims in humiliation to Muslims). Can someone with a spine in congress ask Ilhan Omar or Rashida Tlaib to elaborate?

Israel of 8000 square miles which started with 600,000 Jews and 150,000 Arab citizens in 1948 has become – a nation of about 6,000,000 Jews and 2,000,000 Arabs (in racist and apartheid Israel?) – a powerhouse of advancement in almost every field of knowledge and human intellect: Scientific, Artistic, Agricultural, Literary, Medical, Industrial, Military, Social, Spiritual and others, out producing not only 22 surrounding Arab states, but the entirety of 57 Muslim majority countries on Earth of 1,500,000,000 billion souls combined.

The most dramatic change in the relationship between the USA and Israel occurred, after Israel’s 1967 stunning victory of the Six Days War. From that date onwards, many leaders in the USA had come to the realization that this very tiny state is actually a very strong, mature, powerful and most important of all, an extremely reliable partner and ally as well as being self-reliant in its own defence.

They found out that Israel single handedly trounced the might of six combined Arab armies, two of which, Egypt and Syria, were fully armed by the Soviet Union. In one week in 1967, the balance of military power in the Middle East was completely changed in favour of Israel.

Regularly, Israel proved herself to be literally the front line in defence of Western Civilization against the rising onslaught of Islamic Jihad and terror, all over the world.

Israel’s paramount usefulness was fully demonstrated by the indisputable fact, that had it not been for the 1981 Israeli destruction of Iraq’s Osirak nuclear reactor, the US and the Free World would not have been able to liberate Kuwait or even possibly Saudi Arabia from the clutches of a Nuclear Armed Saddam Hussein following his 1990 occupation of Kuwait.

Of course in 1981, not only did the Europeans unjustly and immorally accuse Israel of aggression, but the State Department chimed in also (I am ignoring the reflex condemnations emanating from the dysfunctional Un-United Nations).

Thankfully, at least Defence Secretary Dick Cheney in October 1991, after the defeat of Saddam in Desert Storm, redressed the condemnation by saying:

“Let me tonight in front of this group thank my good friend David Ivry (Mossad) for the action Israel took in 1981 with respect to the (Osirak) nuclear reactor.” He added:
There were many times during the course of the build-up in the Gulf and the subsequent conflict that I gave thanks for the bold and dramatic action that had been taken [by Israel] some ten years before.”

The strength of the alliance between Israel and USA manifested itself by Israel’s acceptance not to retaliate against Saddam’s deliberately provocative missile attacks upon Israel’s citizens, so that the Arab-US military alliance of Desert Storm would not unravel.

American detractors of Israel, in numerous articles, begin by citing that Israel receives the lion’s share – allegedly (55%) – of US military aid, thus conjuring up the canard of an all-powerful Israel lobby that has turned the US Congress into its pawn.

They wilfully and with malice aforethought, ignore the crystal clear reality, that Israel of 6 million Jews is surrounded by Arab peoples of about 400,000,000 and Iran’s Ayatollahs terrorist regime, who’s publicly declared intention is to eradicate her off the face of the Earth; irrespective of their so called ‘peace’ agreements. Without her advanced military and scientific technologies, Israel would have been wiped out in 1967, 1973 or at any time thereafter.

Most people think of U.S. military aid to Israel as Washington doing Jerusalem a favour — the shocking truth is almost the exact opposite.

It is important to comprehend, that although there is on paper –  just under $4 billion a year in military aid to Israel – it is in fact, corporate welfare for U.S. based military contractors, where the money eventually ends up. Joe Biden, of all people, should know this: He worked for Obama’s administration that set up the current system.

The Israeli government is obligated to spend 75% of U.S. military aid with U.S.-based firms; meaning that of every $1 in aid to Israel, 75 cents supports Lockheed Martin and similar American firms.

The remaining 25% are spent on mutual R&D that helps both nations to create better systems of defence.

In reality – although the above figures reflect official direct US military aid – they are almost meaningless in comparison to the real costs and benefits of US military aid; above all, American boots on the ground in the host states.

When the latter costs are taken into account, Israel actually receives a small fraction of total American military aid; most of which 75% as I mentioned, is contractually spent in the US to the benefit of the American economy.

 Let me now share with you – by factoring in – the real military costs, to find out if Israel’s haters and disparagers are lying or not.

There are about 174,000 American troops stationed in 140 countries around the globe. This costs the American taxpayer about $US40 billion. In simple terms, for every 1,000 American soldiers stationed abroad, it costs the USA $230 million of aid to the country in which they are located.

Therefore, US military personnel stationed in Japan are about 55,000; this translates into US aid to the tune of $12.65 billion.

Germany, with about 64,000 US troops on its soil, receives aid equivalent to around $14.72 billion

South Korea, with about 27,000 US troops, receives over $6.21 billion

Therefore, Germany by far, receives the lion’s share of US military aid; not Israel by any measure conceivable.

Iraq ($5.3 billion), Afghanistan ($5.1 billion), Israel ($3.1 billion), Egypt ($1.2 billion), and Jordan ($1.2 billion).

Egypt, Jordan, Bahrain, Kuwait and others receive in total per annum more than what Israel receives.

Moreover, the above figures totally underrate the total actual expenditures, since they do not include the costs of maintaining the US Carrier battle groups that add hundreds of billions more that are used to defend America’s allies in the Pacific, Atlantic and others.

In fact, these figures, as well as the costs of NATO and other military exercises are buried in classified enormous US military expenditure figures.

Israel’s detractors never take into account any of the above costs in their calculations nor more costs entailing US air and naval forces constantly patrolling the Pacific Ocean, China Seas, the Persian Gulf and Baltic to protect American allies in Europe, the Middle East and the Pacific – at American expense.

On the other hand, and in striking contrast, not a single US plane has ever flown to protect Israel’s airspace. No US Navy ships patrol to protect Israel’s coasts. And most importantly, no US military personnel are put at risk to ensure Israel’s safety.

US troops – in Japan, South Korea, Germany, Kuwait, Qatar, the Baltic states, Poland, and elsewhere – are a vulnerable tripwire used in the hope that their presence will deter attack – unfortunately, there is never any assurance that an attack will not take place. Should such an outbreak occur, it will no doubt cost American lives.

This does not happen in Israel, which defends its citizenry with its own troops. The historical record proves that there is no danger that in Israel, the US might find itself embroiled in wars like those it waged in Iraq and Afghanistan at a cost of over US$4 trillion.

U.S. aid to Israel isn’t only about saving Israeli lives — it is also about creating U.S. jobs and fattening U.S. profit margins.

Suspending or reducing U.S. military aid to Israel would not be a catastrophic event to the Israeli military, since in actuality, it does not need the money as much as it needs – more than anything else – the symbiotic relationship between two exceptional freedom loving peoples helping each other.

The questions facing the United States at this moment in its relationship with Israel, should not be based only on finance. There are more important demands to consider, such as dealing with values, interests, scientific and military technologies, counter terrorism as well as international relations.

These issues are putting Joe Biden in a tough spot, because although his party has many prominent Jews, the Democrat party that he has today has devolved into a sewer of leftist, Islamist, unruly, unpatriotic, anti-White self-loathing party members.

How is it possible for the Sharia compliant Muslims, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib – who recently stated that America is as evil as Hamas and the Taliban – to ever be loyal American citizens, when their Allah’s Quran, forbids them from ever accepting any constitution or law, other than Allah’s Sharia?

As Muslims, their virulent hatred of none Muslims (80% of current humanity called Kuffar/Infidels), and especially of Jews, is visceral since it is religiously mandated in Muhammad’s Quran and has absolutely nothing to do with the ‘palestinian’ land charade, the alleged ‘occupation’, or the mythical Al Aqsa mosque deception.

How else can any American explain Ilhan and Rashida’s support for Hamas – which is an American and Arab declared terrorist entity fully supported by the America hating terrorist Ayatollahs’ Iranian regime? To whom are they showing their loyalty?

What is most shocking of all is the fact that not a single member of both houses, of over 530 souls, has had the backbone and or the patriotism to excoriate these two treasonous misfits.

The tragedy of America today is the reality that what Obama was not able to finish from his agenda to ‘change America’, the Democrats and Biden are presently fulfilling it.

Every passing day under Biden’s watch, is another rung in the downward spiral of the financial, educational,  social, political and military US collapse.

Daniel Levin

Published

By

Daniel Levin was at his office in New York when he got a call from an acquaintance with an urgent, cryptic request to meet in Paris. A young man had gone missing in Syria. No government, embassy, or intelligence agency would help. Could he? Would he? This begins the suspenseful, shocking, and at times brutal true-life story, PROOF OF LIFE: Twenty Days on the Hunt for a Missing Person in the Middle East (Algonquin Books: May 18, 2021), that finds Levin, a lawyer turned armed-conflict negotiator, navigating the seedy and dangerous underbelly of the Middle East, where he encounters powerful sheiks, drug lords, and sex traffickers in pursuit of the truth. This is a job he now takes on every day…

Over the course of twenty intense days, Levin barters and negotiates his way through Istanbul, Beirut, Amman, and Dubai on a quest to find a young man who disappeared under suspicious circumstances. This dangerous journey brings him into contact with the shadowy world of the underground war economy where everything is for sale, and he sees first-hand the power of the industries that endlessly fuel these conflicts—the trade of cash, goods, weapons, drugs and most devastatingly, people.

Daniel Levin is available for interviews starting on Tuesday, May 18, 2021. I would love to get you a copy of the book and schedule an interview. Please let me know if you prefer PDF or hard copy (provide address).

There are upcoming presidential elections in Syria on May 26, which members of the UN Security Council have deemed “a sham” based on the fact that no new constitution will be put into place, and the election is taking place in an ongoing climate of fear and conflict. Levin addresses this and the narrative that Assad has won the war in the book’s postscript.
How did you get involved in this search and what elements of your background made you the ideal person to help?
How is Syria different and similar from other Middle Eastern wars and wars around the world?
What are these tools and what steps did you take on this specific mission to track down the missing person? How did this specific mission differ from previous experiences in Syria, Iraq, Iran and Gaza?
What can you tell us about this captagon, the “ISIS’ favorite amphetamine” and how it funds the Middle Eastern war economy? The coverage of Captagon has been gaining a lot of steam over the past weeks, especially due to panic in Saudi Arabia over the influx of the drug.
Current discussions of hostages in the Biden administration and the errors that have been made by the US government during negotiations as well as the US’ notable recent public statement that they believe American journalist Austin Tice is still alive
In addition to captagon, the war economy thrives on the trade of cash (money laundering through global financial institutions), weapons (chemical weapons and American-supplied artillery originally earmarked for opposition fighters) and people (hostages, prisoners, and children for labor and sex slavery). How do each of these trades keep the war going, and what did you learn about these industries during your quest?
PROOF OF LIFE is a fast-paced thriller wrapped in a memoir, a must-read for anyone interested in power dynamics, international affairs, hostage situations, or the Middle East.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: https://www.daniellevinauthor.com/ The son of a diplomat, Daniel Levin spent his early years in the Middle East and in Africa and then trained as a lawyer. Currently a board member of the Liechtenstein Foundation for State Governance, he has, for the past twenty years, worked with governments and development institutions worldwide, focusing on economic development and political reform through financial literacy, political inclusion, and constitutional initiatives. He is also engaged in track 3 diplomacy and mediation efforts in war zones. Levin’s first book, Nothing but a Circus: Misadventures among the Powerful, was published in Germany, Japan, Russia, and the UK. Proof of Life is his first book to be published in the United States. He lives outside New York City.

Ahmadinejad against the Ayatollahs Regim

Ahmadinejad against the Ayatollahs Regime

It seems obvious that neither Biden nor any of his advisors are aware of the most remarkable turn in the political history of the terrorist Ayatollahs regime of Iran since 1979.

I am asserting their lack of knowledge because they are continuing the Nuclear bomb talks charade while the regime is facing its worst nightmare from inside the failing state.

Never before has anyone in Iran had the backbone to stand up to the terrorist regime leadership except the unpredictable and controversial Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s latest diatribes against the regime.

He is what the ill-informed Western media and leaders call a ‘hardliner’ when in reality there are absolutely no shades in Islam, because according to their own belief system, based on Muhammad’s Quran, one is either an Allah’s Sharia compliant Muslim or is a Kafir/ Infidel (80% of current non-Muslim humanity).

It is like comparing a mass murderer of 100 (hardliner) with one of 80 (moderate).

Ahmadinejad became mayor of Tehran (2003-2005); then served as Iran’s sixth president – twice elected – 2005 to 2013, during which time he reversed many of his predecessor’s reforms.

He truly believes that the Shia Messiah the Mehdi, will come to bring all of humanity to Shia Islam after a world conflagration starting with a war of extermination against Israel.

His objective is to make Iran a fully Sharia compliant nuclear power that will eventually impose its will against all her perceived enemies in the Middle East and elsewhere.

In 2017, he announced that he intended to run for a third term – against the objections of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei – who made sure he would fail by having the Guardian Council reject his nomination.

The Guardian Council, is an appointed body consisting of 6 high-ranking Shiite clerics and 6 lawyers, is a constitutional watchdog that vets parliamentary and presidential election candidates and operates under the supervision of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, who actually makes the final decisions.

During the Iranian public protests in 2017-2018, Ahmadinejad criticized the Ayatollah regime publicly and vehemently.

When he registered to run for the presidency, in 2021, Ayatollah Khamenei once again used the Guardian Council to disqualify him.

Therefore, his grudge against the regime is not only understandable but fully justifiable because they are cooking the votes against the will of the people.

On the 26th May 2021, Ahmadinejad revealed that the Revolutionary Guards’ security chief for Tehran called on him at his home in East-Tehran Monday night (24th May 2021), to tell him that he was disqualified as a presidential candidate and demanded that he “keep silent and cooperate.”

I would like readers to comprehend the enormity of this confrontation between the foremost leaders of the regime, which reflects very badly upon the current affairs of this – as usual – dysfunctional Islamic state.

Ahmadinejad had asserted during and after his registration as a candidate, that if he is disqualified, he will not vote in the election, which was seen as a signal to his voters to follow suit.

To mitigate against any possibility of protests by his supporters, Iran’s intelligence apparatus installed security cameras all around his neighbourhood during the previous week and reports from Tehran informed that his home has been surrounded by anti-riot forces since Monday night.

There were apparently threats and counter-threats exchanged by Nejat and Ahmadinejad, with the former alluding to arrests and the latter making reference to unleashing his supporters to defend him.

According to Ahmadinejad, the guards’ security chief for Tehran told him that he is “not interested in arresting Ahmadinejad’s supporters who are Hezbollah and revolutionary individuals.”

Many polls conducted in Iran and abroad indicated, that Ahmadinejad could be the frontrunner in the June 18 presidential election if he were allowed by the Guardian Council to run.

Reacting to the development, Ahmadinejad published a statement on his official website on Tuesday and said that he had told the same to General Hossein Nejat, the Commander of Sarallah Headquarters in charge of security in Tehran. Hours after the publication, the page went temporarily off the grid.

But fortunately, several screenshots of the report were taken regarding the IRGC threat.

In the screen shot, Ahmadinejad was only telling the truth regarding the abysmal conditions in Iran: “The country’s situation is really bad. The economic situation is catastrophic and the social situation is on the verge of collapse.”

In fact, oil rich Iran has repeated electricity power failures during the worst conditions of the summer heat. Their currency has become worthless $1 = 4000 Rials.

The regime is more than willing to support and subsidize terrorist entities all over the world with billions of dollars, instead of using them for domestic purposes, and most of the people in Iran, obviously resent this state of affairs.

Ahmadinejad further charged, that infiltrators (Israel’s Mossad) have penetrated every part of the country and especially Iran’s military and domestic intelligence agencies “It is a combination of weakness and treason” he said, in a veiled reference to multiple incidents against high-value targets and individuals in the country, and almost the total failure of Iran’s intelligence and security services to stop them.

He had already publicly asserted that many of the top intelligence leaders in Iran are actually Israeli spies; which is an unbelievable affront to the legitimacy of the regime.

He also pointed out to General Nejat, that a low turnout in the elections as a result of widespread and illegal disqualifications, will have major domestic and international repercussions. “The system will fall in a way that it is hard to assume that it can rise once again”

Ahmadinejad asked “Why should they disqualify me? No one has the right to do that and I would never accept this or remain silent”

In fact, only 40% of voters turned out for the rigged elections, making it an abysmal and shameful so called ‘democratic’ election, thus proving him correct.

Meanwhile, Ahmadinejad warned that the “current trend” will quickly worsen and the enemies will seize the opportunity to make the regime surrender and give them concessions.

He further asserted that the people of Iran do not expect him to accept oppression and remain silent in the face of injustice and simply watch the destruction of the regime and the revolution as it unfolds. “The society is on the verge of explosion” he warned, adding that he cannot ignore the people’s demands.

Ahmadinejad predicted that as people distance themselves from the regime, some elements in Iran (counter revolutionaries), are after disbanding the IRGC, doing away with the Guardian Council and bringing about foreign supervision of elections in Iran while the country is on course for a referendum and regime change.

He reiterated that he would not support any current candidate and will resist the moves regarding his unwarranted disqualification as long as he is alive, and that all those who have disqualified him, shall be held responsible for the consequences.

So as not to be accused of inciting insurrection, he added that he would not endorse or support any protest movements as a result of his disqualification.

He nonetheless warned “But those who are behind this disqualification should know that this will end in nothing other than the people’s confrontation with them”.

Ahmadinejad’s outbursts against the regime should not be ignored by the West. On the contrary, his opposition to the regime should be used as a perfect reason to bolster all Iranian counter revolutionary factions to help bring forth the fall of the Ayatollahs’ terrorist Theocratic Regime at the earliest possible time, to save the Middle East and the world from a very possible Nuclear War.

“According to the document, D.A. Castor didn’t feel they had enough evidence to charge Cosby with the sexual assault.
