“If he flee from the iron weapon, the bow of brass shall strike him through.” Job 20:24 (The Israel Bible™)

 

The Obama administration has announced its strong opposition to a plan for increasing funds for Israel’s missile defense program by $455 million in the upcoming year. On Tuesday, the White House sent a six-page letter to the legislative body declaring its objections to the defense appropriations bill.

“The Administration opposes the addition of $455 million above the [Fiscal Year] 2017 budget request for Israeli missile defense procurement and cooperative development programs,” read the letter, which came after last month’s recommendation by the Senate Appropriations Committee to quadruple the amount of aid to the missile program above the administration’s allocated package of $103 million.

The letter suggested that if Congress’s increased package should pass, Obama might make use of his presidential veto to shoot it down.

Pro-Israel lobby American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) condemned the White House statement, saying it was “deeply disappointed” that the administration had “criticized Congress for funding US-Israel missile defense cooperation.”

“These cooperative programs – including the Arrow, David’s Sling, and Iron Dome – are critical for Israel’s defense against a growing array of missile threats and make an important contribution to U.S. missile defense programs,” continued AIPAC’s statement.

The tussle comes as Israel and the US continue to negotiate over the size of the upcoming defense aid package to Israel, which will be spread out over a period of ten years, beginning after the current package expires in 2018.

The new package reportedly earmarks only $145.8 million for missile defense programs, which represents a significant drop in financial support.

While Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has hesitated over accepting the package, anticipating that Israel might get a better deal with the next administration, the US has strongly urged him to take it.

Last week, US National Security Advisor Susan Rice said that the Israel aid package currently under negotiation will constitute “the single largest military assistance package – with any country – in American history.”

  1. Wasn’t it more than that that Obama gave Iran or ISIS or whoever. That slime bag is determined, have to give him credit for that. Destruction is his middle name. We’ll see what the Lord has to say about “king Obama.” I think He raises some up and squishes others?

    • You know, Sue, as disgusting as this is to me that Obama would threaten to decrease missile spending to help Israel, I know that God has seen this through to the end. I believe myself that one of the reasons that America is not listed in prophecy is that we will have abandoned Israel just as we are doing to God.

      • Oh I have no doubt that the Lord is going to pour out His wrath on this country. We cannot thumb our noses at Christ and tell Him to —- — and think He is going to just say, “kids will be kids.” Obama has managed to turn even Christians, or those who think they’re Christians, against Israel. I saw a video of college students agreeing that Jewish men, women, children, hospitals, being bombed was fine and dandy. They have no idea what they’re in for. Muslims hate Christians and Jews and Obama has proven over and over his hatred for both. I’m with you, the Lord will see this through. I’m just waiting for Him to say “enough!” and we’re out of here. Praise be to God.
