Dangers of Widening War in the Middle East

U.S. again threatening to bomb in defense of terrorists in Syria

The US is poised to attack Syria.

Could someone please remind Pompeo and Bolton that al-Qaeda are the bad guys?

Israel’s Netanyahu issues veiled threat of nuclear attack against its “many enemies”

https://israelpalestinenews. org/netanyahu-issues-veiled- threat-of-nuclear-attack- against-its-many-enemies/

Netanyahu used a visit to an Israeli atomic reactor to warn Iran and others that Israel has the means to destroy them. “Our enemies know very well what Israel is capable of doing.” He said that the weak are slaughtered and erased from history…

Israel is the only nuclear power in the Middle East. The country is reported to have between 100 and 400 nuclear weapons. While Israel has never officially admitted this fact, Israeli leaders periodically threaten their use…

Aid to nuclear armed Israel illegal under U.S. law

The 1976 Symington and Glenn Amendments to the Foreign Assistance Act prohibit U.S. aid from being given to countries that have not signed the nuclear nonproliferation agreement… Public evidence of Israeli weapons finally became available in 1986 when the London Times published information from Israeli whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu. (Vanunu was kidnapped by Israel and imprisoned for 18 years, 12 of them in solitary detention.”)… The following year a Pentagon report also documented the Israeli nuclear weapons program.

Despite that fact, U.S. aid to Israel has continued. According to the think tank Research: MIddle East Policy, Israel has so far received approximately $234 billion in illegal aid. A package to give Israel $38 billion over the next ten years is currently before Congress, the largest such aid package in U.S. history. So far, U.S. media have failed to tell Americans about the legislation… Aid to Israel is also illegal under the Leahy Laws, which prohibit U.S. aid to countries guilty of human rights violations.”
