Israeli lobby in complete ownership of US Congress

“What this basically reveals is that first and foremost, the Israeli lobby is in complete ownership of  most of the GOP on Capitol Hill; they own a key number of people on the other side of the aisle,” said Mark Dankof, who is also a broadcaster and pastor in San Antonio, Texas. The senators “are basically doing the bidding not only of Israel, but of the arms manufacturers and of the national security establishment, which wants to pursue these neoconservative Zionist goals in the Middle East at any price,” Dankof said. The US Senate passed a Mideast policy bill on Tuesday, including a measure that would allow US states to penalize businesses that take part in boycotts of Israel, and an amendment that breaks with Trump by opposing any plans for an abrupt withdrawal of troops from Syria. The Senate backed the Strengthening America’s Security in the Middle East Act by a lopsided 77-23, hours before Trump was to deliver his annual State of the Union speech discussing his policies for the year. Many members of Congress, including several fellow Republicans, strongly disagree with a plan Trump announced in December to withdraw 2,000 US troops from Syria on the grounds that Daesh no longer posed a threat. However, the US military is expected to fully withdraw its forces from Syria by the end of April following the order by Trump, unnamed officials confirmed to The Wall Street Journal on Thursday. The new amendment, drafted by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, argued that while there had been progress in the fight against Daesh (ISIL) in both Syria and Afghanistan, the Trump administration had more to do in order to ensure the terror outfit’s “enduring defeat.” The bill also includes provisions supported by both Republicans and Democrats to impose new sanctions on Syria and guarantee assistance to Israel. To become law, however, the bill would need to pass the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives, which is unlikely due to concerns about a provision that aims to curb the “Boycott, Divest and Sanctions” movement against Israel and its violent treatment of Palestinian people. Opponents of that provision argue that Americans’ participation in boycotts is protected by the constitutional right to free speech.

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save Them

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: Paypal: **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
