The case for the US military aid to Israel or Why actually Israel does not need USD 3 billion annually

Prominent US figures like Senator Bernie Sander, Congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Rashida Talib and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are demanding that the US military aid to Israel be reconsidered.

It was a historical moment to see a bunch of congressmen and congresswoman demanding what seemed to be impossible to demand at the US Congress from two days ago.

against US aid to Israel in Atlanta on Saturday 

Protesters all over the United States on Saturday held signs demanding Joe Biden to cut off the US military aid to Israel. “Many Egyptians envy them but I believe the voices in the States were louder and more heard in the West than our Arabic voice that has longed protested but always ignored”.

The protesters held banners saying that the US military aid to Israel kills babies.

Israel is the biggest recipient of US aid. It started as economic aid at first in the 1970s but in the 1990s, it became a military aid

Morally speaking, I do not understand how the US lectures China and Russia “and rightly so” when it supports the Israeli state which is an apartheid state with a very long record of breaking international laws and UN Security Council resolutions. Israel has been occupying Arab land for decades now and discriminants between Jews and Arabs systematically.

So Why does the US support it with the US taxpayers money? 

There are unconfirmed reports already that Israel deployed its F-16s and F-35s in its attacks to Gaza where so far not less than 40 children have been killed alone according to the latest tolls of the Palestinian Health Ministry.

Israeli forces have been targeting many civilian targets from houses and towers from the Upper Middle Palestinian class claiming to be legitimate targets of Hamas, but it is untrue, and it is reportedly a tactic used by Israel to create public pressure and anger from the militant group in Gaza. It has yielded negative results.

Away from morals and my Egyptian Arab emotional talks, any fair and balanced observer would wonder why the US would give Israel with its military production excellence military aid in the first place.

Media's different tune, Medical aid and Ceasefire offers: Egypt after Palestine under attack

It is Friday in Egypt and the Friday prayer

The State TV transferred for the first time since quite some time the Friday prayer sermon from Al-Azhar Mosque in Cairo and it was all about Palestine and the Israeli Zionists attacks against Palestinians.

Its main title was “To support the occupied territories”.

Veteran Sheikh Ahmed Omar Hashem used strong language to speak about “Occupied Palestine”, “Occupation forces” and “the silence of Arab states".

Al-Azhar is the most prominent Sunni religious institution in Egypt and in the world.

Some will say that recently Al-Azhar institution was not on the same page with the current Egyptian administration on certain issues related to the religious discourse in the country and that it is independent but still it is the Egyptian State TV.

Its grand Emam, Sheikh Ahmed El-Tayeb has been the most senior Egyptian and Muslim figure to condemn and attack publicly Israel and its actions in the past three months openly. 

Hours after Sheikh Hasham’s sermon, we found former Mufti and close to the regime Sheikh Ali Goma’a sending this message through his official social media networks.

Bibi’s Game or How you make a time bomb and do not know how to stop it

When I saw the photo of the rockets launched from Gaza by Qassam brigades towards Israel in some cinematic scene, all I can think about is how this what current Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu aka Bibi wanted from the start.

Photo showing the rockets coming reportedly from Gaza on 
Tuesday "Twitter" 

Bibi wanted to remain in the picture and if he has to leave, he will leave behind chaos just like any corrupted Middle Eastern despot.

Yes, Bibi made an achievement and truly became a Middle Eastern corrupted leader whether financially or politically or morally too.

What is better to create chaos or turning things upside down except by launching a war against Gaza once again?

It proved to be a successful tactic in the Middle East to make people forget democracy and human rights when they feel danger and that their own national security.

Bibi and partners in the Gulf do not want the Biden administration to revive the Iran deal.

Bibi does not really want to revive the peace process nor does he want to stop the expansion in settlements.

Erupting a short battle with militant groups of Gaza is a perfect way and he knows very well which buttons to push for this to happen.
