A bipartisan bill introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives would enhance protections for Israel’s qualitative military edge to include an effective Israeli veto on US arms sales to the Middle East:
The bill “would require the President to consult with the Israeli government to ensure [qualitative military edge] concerns are settled” when it comes to arms sales to Middle Eastern countries, said the news release Friday announcing its introduction the previous day. The release came from the office of the bill’s lead sponsor, Rep. Brad Schneider, D-Ill.
Existing law already guarantees Israel a qualitative military edge in the Middle East, but Congress — not Israel — is the arbiter of whether an arms sale meets QME standards.
Most of the sponsors are Democrats, including a number of Jewish lawmakers, among them Schneider, Elaine Luria of Virginia, Max Rose of New York, Josh Gottheimer of New Jersey, and Ted Deutch and Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida.
Jewish Democrats expressed alarm after it was revealed that, parallel with the U.S.-brokered normalization deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, the Trump administration was negotiating the sale of state-of-the-art F-35 stealth combat jets to the UAE. Israel opposes the sale.
AIPAC, the prominent Israel lobby, supports the new measure.
There is no other way to describe this legislation except outright treason — and every U.S. member of Congress who votes in favor of it should be charged with treason and face the stiffest penalty for treason allowed under the law.
Of course, U.S. politicians have sold American down the river to Israel for decades in a thousand different ways — death by a thousand cuts.
But now the world’s greatest superpower must ask Israel’s permission to sell any weapons to any country in the Middle East — to ensure Israel’s artificial dominance and hegemony in that region.
When it comes to White nations, foreign policy is always predicated on the concept of “balance of power”, but with Israel it is based on “unrivaled power”.
Eventually, it will become the law of the land that America itself is not allowed to be militarily stronger than Israel — but given the number of Israelis that freely roam the halls of the Pentagon and access to all of its military “secrets”, such a law would only be a formality at this point.
