OY FUCKING VEY! Rand Paul Says US Should Stop Funding Israel Forever Reader 12/02/2018 (Sun) 14:52:30 Id: c9e521 No.13337 del
Republican Senator Rand Paul opposes the “forever” funding of Israel by the US.

The Kentucky Senator came under fire after blocking a bill authorizing tens of billions in military aid to Israel aid over 10 years, according to a report by Politico.

Paul placed a hold on the bill on Oct. 11 using his Senate privileges.

Paul said that he was opposed to legislation, known as the United States-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2018, and sought to make changes in it in coming days.

“While I’m not for foreign aid in general, if we are going to send aid to Israel it should be limited in time and scope so we aren’t doing it forever, and it should be paid for by cutting the aid to people who hate Israel and America,” Paul’s office said in an statement.

The legislation gives Tel Aviv $38 billion in the framework of a defense aid package over 10 years and was negotiated in the final days of the Obama administration.

Paul’s move has met strong opposition by major pro-Israel groups.
