Ohio Israeli Bond Sale HA-24-2-06


1. US Israeli relations are friendly but as the result of an Israeli Military Financing agreement in the Annual US Foreign Relations Act, is complicated with treason that finances both sides of the Arab Israeli conflict.  Although this treason has come under control by the Arab States that have placed their funds in escrow, this illegal financing has not been eliminated despite three years of advocacy.  Although confidentially criticized by HA before, the treason did not come to public light until the shortly before the ICJ rendered the Advisory Opinion regarding the Legal Consequences of Constructing a Wall in the Occupied Palestinian Territory No. 131 on 9 July 2004.  What had occurred was that shortly after HA submitted a second draft of what is now called, in its third draft, the Will of the Palestinian People HA-11-11-04, while the judges were deliberating, the Israeli Minister of Defense flew to seek counsel with the US Department of Defense in Washington DC, where they planned an attack upon Palestine that they launched without the authorization of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who quickly suppressed the conflict at the behest of HA and the Israeli Supreme Court, but not without causing extensive damage to Palestinian lives and property, the Peace Process and Article 2(4) of the UN Charter that is considered the jus cogens, universal norm of international law, and is commonly known as the principle of non-use of force.  It states, “all Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any State, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations”


2. This 2006 the treason can be found in the Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related Programs Appropriations Act (HR 3057) that provides $4,442,300,000 for the Foreign Military Financing Program with $2,280,000,000 for Israel not less than $595,000,000 of which for advanced weapons systems including research and development, $1,300,000,000 for Egypt transferred to interest bearing account in New York, $206,000,000 for Jordan, $41,600,000 for expenses of the USA, $373,000,000 for Department of Defense.  This program is the most expensive of all categories of foreign assistance expenditures as the result of the arms race to achieve the number 0 in the balance of power between the Arab league and Israel.  This arms race should be totally discontinued to eliminate this dangerous military competition amongst friends of the USA and either use the money for official development investment or savings for the federal government that should not be involved in arms races in contravention to the principles of the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty HA-5-5 and UN Charter.  The US can consider this a $4 billion deficit reduction.


3. What we hope to do this day is leverage the repeal of the Foreign Military Financing Provisions of the Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related Programs Appropriations Act (HR 3057) responsibility for which can be primarily attributed to Foreign Relations Chairman Senator Lugar (R-Indiana) and secondarily to Senator Jo Biden (D-Delaware) through the sale of Israeli Bonds held by Jennette Bradley Secretary of Treasury of the State of Ohio.  These Israeli bonds were purchased by the State of Ohio, with what is best to assume as criminal intent by the former Secretary of Treasury Joe Deters.  The immediate justification for the sale of these bonds is that Prosecutor v. Joe Deters HA-30-12-05 was served upon the Israeli Supreme Court, for Hannukah, precipitating a second stroke that put Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in a deep coma.  The poisoning investigation is torn between high cholesterol latkes consumed in celebration of Hannukah and a planned assassination by this same US Israeli military plot that we seek to eliminate this day.  These Israeli Bonds need to be sold to private Jewish organizations in the USA and internationally, to remove the interest from the US government that has yet to repeal their treason. 


4. Whereas the attack before the International Court of Justice was completely illegal it is important that the people responsible for the administration of the Foreign Military Financing are fully investigated with the presumption that they are involved in treason against the Holy Land and punished for their crimes.  It is very likely that it is this treason that is being used to brainwash and launch the Palestinian suicide attacks as well as the IDF assaults on Palestinian territory.  Although there is no evidence, it is very likely that this international plot is responsible for the incapacity of the Israeli Prime Minister and the electoral fraud that launched the internationally unpopular Hamas, a terrorist organization registered with both the US and the European Union, to win the Palestinian elections, causing sanctions of US assistance to Palestine unless Hamas officially recognizes the State of Israel and makes a pledge of nonviolence.  We hope that the US government will eliminate their treason against the Holy Land by repealing Foreign Military Financing Provisions. 


5. Progressive Democrats of America published “The Israel/Palestine Conflict – Policy Guidelines” by Charles Lenchner and Bruce Taub of (February 13, 2006 Draft) that states, PDA supports a negotiated, just, and peaceful solution between Israel and the Palestinian people, as represented by their lawfully elected governments. That solution will require the establishment of two states as a precondition for achieving a lasting peace. Claims of the Palestinian people over land, refugees, final borders and settlements and Israeli concerns over security and water rights must be addressed.  PDA supports the aspirations of both Israelis and Palestinians for security and self determination, an end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, an end to all violence in Israel and Palestine, most especially against civilians, and a resolution of the Palestinian refugee problem consistent with international law and equity.


6. PDA recognizes that U.S. policy, under both Democratic and Republican administrations, has been to support successive Israeli governments and actions in a

one-sided – and counterproductive – manner. PDA endeavors to modify this one-sided, counterproductive approach by supporting efforts to view and respond to the situation in a far more just and balanced manner, and by promoting a U.S. foreign policy based on democracy, human rights, and respect for international law. PDA calls for U.S. military aid to countries in the Middle East to be based on rigorous enforcement of the Arms Export Control and Foreign Assistance Acts.


7. PDA believes that truly progressive Democrats must be heard on this issue.  PDA believes the voices of the pro-occupation, Christian right wing, and military industry lobbies have had undue influence and dominated national discourse.


8. PDA stands with our allies, and with all progressive organizations willing to take a stand on the Israel/Palestine conflict in a principled manner, driven by the pursuit

of true and equal justice and peace. PDA's allies in this struggle include leading national organizations representing the peace community, American Jews, Arab, and the faith community, including the Arab American Institute, Americans for Peace Now, Tikkun Community, the Arab American Anti-Discrimination Committee, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Jewish Voice for Peace, and the National Council of Churches. PDA's overall goal is to promote peace among all of the peoples in the Middle East. This document reflects PDA's best current thinking on the pressing and seemingly endlessly urgent situation in Israel/Palestine. At all times PDA welcomes comments regarding the Israel/Palestine conflict.


9. For the sake of continuing international assistance to Palestine we implore upon Hamas to recognize Israel in an adaptation of Martin Luther King Jr.’s Pledge of Nonviolence,


We pledge to do everything that we can to make the Holy Land and the world a place where equality and justice, freedom and peace will grow and flourish.


We pledge to make nonviolence a way of life in all our dealings with all people.


We will reject all forms of hatred, bigotry, prejudice and slavery.


We will embrace the values of unconditional, universal love, truthfulness, courage, compassion, and dedication to a Holy Land where all people, Israeli, Palestinian or foreign, can live together as sisters and brothers.
