Thomas Massie Stands Up to the Fanatic Zionist Lobby by Opposing Military Aid to Israel

New Speaker of the House Mike Johnson recently put forward a $14 billion aid bill for Israel in light of its current war against Hamas. This legislation will likely receive strong bipartisan support owing to the harsh reality that both parties are virtually owned by Zionist lobbies. 

However, Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie can be counted on to oppose this aid bill. 

In an X post that he published on October 30, 2023, Massie declared “If Congress sends $14.5 billion to Israel, on average we’ll be taking about $100 from every working person in the United States. This will be extracted through inflation and taxes. I’m against it.” 

Massie was instantly attacked by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on October 30 for his vote against H. Res 771, a resolution that expressed the US’s solidarity with Israel as it battles Hamas. AIPAC posted the following on X: 

Instead of standing with Israel, @RepThomasMassie voted with @AOC, @RashidaTlaib, @Ilhan, @JamaalBowmanNY, and @SummerForPA. Massie and the Squad: Opposed supporting Israel. Opposed condemning Hamas.

At the time this resolution was voted on, Massie rationalized his decision to vote against this resolution, as detailed below: 

I condemn the barbaric attack on Israel and I affirm Israel’s right to defend itself. However, I will not be voting for House Resolution 771 today because: 1) It calls for sanctions on a sovereign country. Sanctions are a prelude to war and hurt the citizens of the country more than the government of the country that’s being sanctioned. And ultimately, sanctions create laws that will be used to prosecute American citizens (who engage in trade), not citizens of the sanctioned country. In short, sanctions do not achieve their stated purposes but do breed resentment of our country abroad. 2) It asserts the necessity of foreign aid commitments which I have voted against. Our country is going bankrupt and we can’t afford to borrow money to send overseas, yet this resolution states that we should. 3) It contains an open-ended promise of military support that is so broad that it could be interpreted to commit US soldiers to the conflict. US troops should not be engaged in this conflict. 4) It tends to broaden the conflict to other countries when it would be better to keep the war contained geographically. Here’s a link to the text of the resolution, which contains some statements I do support and some statements I cannot support.


With respect to AIPAC, Massie had this to say about the pro-Zionist lobby: 

“AIPAC always gets mad when I put America first. I won’t be voting for their $14+ billion shakedown of American taxpayers either. Let them know what you think by replying to their post. They are intentionally misrepresenting my intent and the resolution I voted against.”

Massie is apparently not alone in opposing this Israel aid bill. Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene has manifested her opposition to said legislation. She posted on X: 

I will be voting NO on all funding packages for the Ukraine war (as I have from the beginning) and now the Israel war. We have had over 10 MILLION people illegally cross our border since Biden took office and we are over $33 TRILLION dollars in debt with many major problems afflicting Americans. The United States government needs to focus on spending American’s hard earned tax dollars on our own country and needs to serve the American people NOT the rest of the world.



Good on Massie for opposing this latest attempt to get the US embroiled in another geopolitical quagmire. It’s not the US’s responsibility to secure the sovereignty of foreign nations, especially those of the devious variety such as Israel.  Organizations like AIPAC are as subversive as they come. Rational policymakers would do everything possible to have AIPAC register as a foreign agent and keep tabs on its activities in the US.

Let’s hope a growing number of Republicans begin growing a pair and start opposing more pro-Zionist legislation that makes its way across Congress. Last time I checked, the US government serves to promote American interests not those of foreign nations.
