Massie Calls Out Pro-Israel Group

Thomas Massie a United States Representative from Kentucky has called out a pro-Israel group for being a foreign agent.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

Rep. Thomas Massie (R., Ky.) accused a leading American pro-Israel lobbying group of acting as a foreign agent.

After Massie voted against funding Israel’s Iron Dome missile-defense system last week, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee published an ad attacking him for his stance. “When Israel faced rocket attacks, Thomas Massie voted against Iron Dome,” the ad read.

AIPAC is a bipartisan American lobbying group headquartered in Washington, D.C., and is not an Israeli government agent. The organization has more than 100,000 members in the United States.

Critics accused Massie of evoking the anti-Semitic “dual loyalty” trope, in which American Jews are cast as holding loyalty to Israel over the United States. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) drew controversy in 2019 for advancing the trope after she bemoaned “the political influence in this country that says it is OK to push for allegiance to a foreign country [Israel].”

Massie was the only Republican in the House of Representatives to vote against United States funding for the Iron Dome in Israel.

The Iron Dome is an important Defense Weapon that keep Israel from being totally destroyed by its Enemies, which by the way, pretty much surrounds Israel. The number of missiles that Hamas, Iran and other enemies throw at Israel is astounding to say the least. The Iron Dome is not a toy nor a game but is Defense as otherwise, the Destruction of Israel would be complete. I do not understand Massie’s Stance.

Massey has either taken a progressive bribe, or some dumbocrap dropped a blue pill in his drink.

Interesting that Massie hasn’t called out the squad for their anti-semite rhetoric but he’ll call out an American pro Israel group for an ad that points out his vote against Israel being able to protect itself from rocket attacks.

This should not be too surprising. I, like many thought the Republican Party was on the side of right, What Trump did, was to expose the falsehood and exposed so much of what has been going on for generations of Administrations, not just the present, We didn’t get into this present situation overnight, This is a wake call for all of us, it’s past time that people in Govt. are held responsible. Today they now demand identity papers for all of us, called a vax. passport, They want into our bank accounts and have the banks report every thing over 600,00 that we spend or deposit. They already have started to corrupt our voting system, by mailing everyone a ballot, citizen or not, registered or not. They are allowing infective people with the virus into the country, and just depositing them around the country, while they demand we all get the vax, They make no sense at all, it is insane.

My King James Version of the Bible tells me that many people in Israel calling themselves ‘Jews” are NOT all true Semites who belong to the Twelve Tribes of Israel found in England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Holland, Germany, Wales, Italy and the Scandinavian countries. It says that the pure Arabs are also Semites because they share the same father Abraham but not the same mother as Isaac. The political use of all this anti-Semite business is very confusing to those who do not understand the Bible. Even J.C. himself does not like the inhabitants of Jerusalem in Luke 19 v 27.
