"For the second time this month the Biden administration is bypassing Congress to approve an emergency weapons sale to Israel as Israel continues to prosecute its war against Hamas in Gaza under increasing international criticism," the AP reports.

From AP, "The Biden administration once again bypasses Congress on an emergency weapons sale to Israel":
The State Department said Friday that Secretary of State Antony Blinken had told Congress that he had made a second emergency determination covering a $147.5 million sale for equipment, including fuses, charges and primers, that is needed to make the 155 mm shells that Israel has already purchased function.

"Given the urgency of Israel's defensive needs, the secretary notified Congress that he had exercised his delegated authority to determine an emergency existed necessitating the immediate approval of the transfer," the department said.

"The United States is committed to the security of Israel, and it is vital to U.S. national interests to ensure Israel is able to defend itself against the threats it faces," it said.

[...] Blinken made a similar decision on Dec. 9, to approve the sale to Israel of nearly 14,000 rounds of tank ammunition worth more than $106 million.
Israel is strong enough to defend itself (with the hundreds of billions of dollars in effective aid American taxpayers have provided) but America needs to pay for their war and send aircraft carriers off their coast to support their ethnic cleansing campaign with our military might.

As I reported on Friday, Israel's also ordering us now to go to war with Iran on their behalf.
