Guess which Tea Party star voted with HAMAS (and Dennis Kucinich) recently?
No, not Ron Paul. Yes, he voted with HAMAS, too. But it was Justin Amash, the Palestinian Western Michigan Congressman, darling of the Tea Party and a supposed conservative. He voted to continue U.S. payments of billions of dollars to the Palestinian Authority and declined to condemn a HAMAS Palestinian state that won’t recognize Israel. Read the text of House Resolution 268, which he opposed.
Congressman Justin Amash: The GOP’s/Tea Party’s HAMASnik
It’s doubly disgusting considering a report that Palestinian Media Watch’s Itamar Marcus delivered today to Republican Congressmen on Capitol Hill, detailing how $5 million a month in U.S. funds goes directly to pay salaries to jailed HAMAS terrorists. Not that this is news. We knew all along that much of the money we pay to these scumbags is going for no good purposes.
I warned you about Amash around election time. He ran on the premise of a Palestinian state connecting Gaza and the so-called West Bank dividing Israel through the further usurpation of more Israeli land. And, since he’s been elected, he voted to restore Planned Parenthood and National Palestinian Radio (NPR) money to the budget. That’s what the Tea Party stands for? Cash to fund abortions and pan-Muslim crap on the radio? It is, in Amash’s mind and his many blind-faith Tea Partiers.
Now, Amash has taken to voting with HAMAS on House Resolution 268, which calls for an end to U.S. tax dollars to the Palestinian Authority, so long as it is entangled with HAMAS, and opposes recognition of a HAMAS Palestinian state.
Amash’s vote stands out because even the most vitriolic anti-Semites and HAMASniks in Congress abstained by voting, “Present,” or not voting at all. Heck, some, like John Dingell, John Conyers, and Jihad Darrell Issa, voted for the resolution. Those voting present included Israel-haters Lynn Woolsey, Jim Moran, and Jim McDermott and Muslims Keith Ellison and Andre Carson. But Amash had to outdo them all and voted “no” in unison with Ron Paul, Hezbollah fan Nick Joe Rahall, Dennis Kucinich, Oregon Granola Nut Democrat Earl Blumenaur, and PaulNut Republican Congressman Walter B. Jones.
Writes one of Amash’s constituents in the Third District of Michigan:
I’m afraid that Justin Amash (R) MI-3 prefers to represent Palestinian Arabs instead of citizens from Michigan’s 3rd District.
Indeed. Funny how Ron Paul and Justin Amash, who claim to embrace isolationism and don’t think the U.S. should be involved in foreign policy and foreign funding, oppose stopping American taxpayer funds going to HAMAS.
Whenever I note the problem of Tea Partiers’ warm embrace of anti-Israel, anti-Semitic nuts, like Paul and Jim Traficant, I get nothing but blind faith defensiveness from them. And the same goes for Amash, the friend of HAMAS and Palestinian whom Tea Partiers put in office as a Republican Congressman from Michigan.
I don’t just blame the Tea Partiers for Amash. I also blame the self-proclaimed pro-Israel Jews from AIPAC. Pro-Israel and Jewish residents of Amash’s district repeatedly contacted the AIPAC crowd in Michigan and nationally, asking for help for Amash’s pro-Israel, down-the-line-conservative primary opponent, Bill Hardiman, in the solidly Republican seat. They declined, despite Amash’s open call for splitting Israel up and his known Palestinian sympathies and background. Now, he’s solidly entrenched, and it will take a lot to ever get him out.
Thanks, Tea Party and AIPAC, for bringing us HAMAS’ new favorite Republican.
