Israeli Aggression



With the looming US/Global Financial Crisis, and the pumping in of approximately $700 Billion dollars, the actual amount of US Taxpayer money going to Israel is not even close to the stated $3.2 Billion. That amount is considered "Unclassified" and the amount the public-at-large can know about... for national security reasons of course.

Just how much money are we really talking about? To help put things in perspective, the not-so Big Three automakers recently received around $17.5 Billion in bailout money. Add another $200 Billion to that and you get closer to what the US provides Israel in taxpayer money every year. Not $3.2 Billion!

The images that follow have a story to share with you. What that story will be depends on your individual belief system. 



The following information comes from the Nuclear Threat Initiative website.

In the United States, and for political reasons, no single definition of 'terrorism' has been accepted worldwide, and several different ones are in current use. 

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) defines terrorism as:
"The unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives."
The U.S. State Department defines terrorism as:
"Premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by sub-national groups or clandestine agents, usually intended to influence an audience."
Terrorism experts outside government have also developed their own definitions. For example, Walter Laqueur, a terrorism specialist at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C., defines terrorism as:
"The sub-state application of violence or threatened violence intended to sow panic in a society, to weaken or even overthrow the incumbents, and to bring about political change."
