HAARETZ: Trump’s Support for Israel Marred by Troubling Revival of ‘America First’ Slogan
Republican frontrunner’s foreign policy speech will remind American Jews of isolationist movement stained by anti-Semitism that tried to block war with Hitler. By Chemi Shalev.
 {“WRH: Because if you are an American, Israel should come first! Because of the holocaust! And, well, yes, I know that Germany did whatever it is that was supposed to have happened, and the US opposed Germany, but you didn’t oppose them ENOUGH! Nowhere near enough! So we OWN you, and thus if you are an American you will always think of Israel first and foremost and forget you have a country of your own … just like the Palestinians … and the US Congress!”}


TASS: Russian Foreign Ministry urges more consistency in US Syria policy. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has commented on the US intention to deploy additional 250 personnel in Syria.


TASS: Damascus views deployment of 150 US troops to Rmeilan air field as aggression. “This intervention is rejected and illegitimate, it happened without the Syrian government’s approval,” the SANA news agency quotes Syrian Foreign Ministry’s statement as saying {GEE, YA THINK?!?!? The serious question which must be asked, is, why is the US government pushing so hard for war against Russia in Syria in an election year?!? The answer is two-fold. First, the American economy is about to crash into a wall, and the Obama administration wants a war upon which to blame the crash. The second is, if in fact, Trump does get elected as President, the Democrats want to hand him the ugliest and most unpalatable plate of economic and geopolitical misery they can conjure.}

From ISRAEL

NY Times: Obama-Netanyahu Rift Impedes U.S. Offer of Record Aid Deal for Israel
By JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS {President Obama has proposed granting Israel the largest package of military aid ever provided by the United States to another nation, but he and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu remain deeply at odds over a figure for the assistance despite months of negotiations.. American officials have balked as their Israeli counterparts insisted on more generous terms for a new 10-year military aid package that could top $40 billion. The divide, which could have broad national security implications for both the United States and Israel, is exacerbated by the pent-up animosity between Mr. Obama and Mr. Netanyahu, which has been stoked by their radically divergent views of the nuclear deal with Iran.
If this is the game Netanyahu is playing, let us hope and pray that the next President is Trump, and absolutely not Clinton. Also, I would very much like to politely remind the Obama administration that ANY aid to Israel is illegal, because under the Symington Amendment, the US government is not allowed to give any financial or military aid to any country which does NOT sign the NNPT agreement (which Israel has not), and have their nuclear sites inspected (which Israel will not allow}.

“Practical Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse”

This newsletter provides what is missing in the US mainstream media and what the American public needs to learn about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. We hope you never fail to make the connection between APPAF’s reported articles and the cause and effect of the Palestinian problem and the vicious Israeli occupation as its illegitimate heinous perpetrator

It follows the Admonitions of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson:
“Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people” – John Adams – Second US President
“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” Thomas Jefferson

We also invite you to visit www.APPAF.org website, and send us your feedback.

Please don’t forget that Palestine is as much of an American problem as it is a Palestinian and an Israeli problem.
