Vox Popoli: Suddenly, for no reason at all....

Not content with attacking the 1st Amendment, Neopalestinians in Congress are now seeking to give Israel a veto over U.S. arms sales:

A bipartisan bill introduced in the House of Representatives would enhance protections for Israel’s qualitative military edge to include an effective Israeli veto on US arms sales to the Middle East.

The bill “would require the President to consult with the Israeli government to ensure [qualitative military edge] concerns are settled” when it comes to arms sales to Middle Eastern countries, said the news release Friday announcing its introduction the previous day. The release came from the office of the bill’s lead sponsor, Rep. Brad Schneider, D-Ill.

Existing law already guarantees Israel a qualitative military edge in the Middle East, but Congress — not Israel — is the arbiter of whether an arms sale meets QME standards.

Do they not truly understand that this sort of machination is going to fill the average American with the hitherto undiscovered desire to sell nukes to Hamas and Iran? Or is it that they do not care?

The stupidity and short-sightedness is relentless.
