Netanyahu’s on Capitol Hill… He Wants More Money

netanyahu2Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in town again and he’s here to ask President Obama for more money and weapons. Though Israel already receives more of America’s foreign aid budget than any other nation, Netanyahu is requesting an increase in aid from 3 billion dollars to 5 billion per year for the next 10 years.  Then, an Antarctic ice shelf that could collapse, a new study from the Potsdam Institute reveals. We’ll find out when from client scientist Johannes Feldmann – and what will come next.


Guests:

Josh Ruebner, Policy Director of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation and author of  Shattered Hopes: Obama’s Failure to Broker Israeli-Palestinian Peace
Johannes Feldmann, climate scientist at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany
With Host Philip Maldari.

    How dare him come and ask more money when he insulated our President OBAMA ?! Why should our taxes go to any country, before our own Counties,States, People can’t even pay their debts. Netanyahu should apologize to our president, and the killing Palestinian families. No more tax dollars for those who kill our families.
    Our taxes need to take care of our families in the USA. If our government keeps feeding the killers(in our name), better take care of our United States first.
