‘A Matter Of Good Versus Evil’; US Approves $14.3 Billion in Aid to Israel
The US House of Representatives on Thursday, November 2, approved a bill to provide $14.3 billion in aid to Israel amid the war against Hamas. The bill was approved by a majority of 226 to 196.
Speaking with American media, House Speaker Mike Johnson minced no words about the necessity for providing aid to Israel as it fights the terrorist group Hamas, saying, “This is a matter of good versus evil.”
The funding for the aid to Israel will be reallocated from money that was meant for the IRS in President Joe Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act. President Biden got $80 billion through the Inflation Reduction Act to expand the IRS. Roughly $21 billion was removed as part of a debt ceiling deal in June.
Johnson said before the vote, “I understand their priority is to bulk up the IRS. But I think if you put this to the American people and they weigh the two needs — I think they’re going to say standing with Israel and protecting the innocent over there is in our national interest.”
Rep. Chip Roy had also tweeted, “To truly #StandWithIsrael, we should swiftly PASS a stand-alone $14BB Israel-only support package… & PAY FOR that support to ensure our own fiscal & military strength… & STOP FUNDING the soulless globalists (UN, e.g.) supporting Hamas, Iran, & our other common enemies.” (DW / VFI News)
“God, we thank You for granting us powerful and generous allies who are willing to help us in our time of need. We are especially grateful for our American friends who provide substantial financial support and realize the urgency of the situation in our country. We are also thankful for everyone who speaks out against the terrorists who have caused so many deaths, pain, and suffering to our people.”
