MAGA? US Offering Indonesia Billions to Normalize With Israel

Sheldon can't give them his money?

The US is offering billions in financing to Indonesia if the Asian country agrees to normalize relations with Israel, part of the Trump administration’s last-minute push to secure more normalization deals.

An official from the US International Development Finance Corporation (DFC) said talks are ongoing and that the US could more than double its current $1 billion portfolio if Indonesia develops ties with Israel. [Let me guess. That won’t be financed by Tel Aviv.]

“We’re talking to them about it,” DFC Chief Executive Officer Adam Boehler said in an interview on Monday. “If they’re ready, they’re ready and if they are then we’ll be happy to even support more financially than what we do.” According to Bloomberg, Boehler said the DFC could boost its funding to Indonesia by “one or two more billion dollars.”

The US has been giving countries generous rewards for agreeing to normalize with Israel, like the $23 billion weapons package for the UAE and the recognition of Morocco’s sovereignty over Western Sahara. The US also removed Sudan from the terror list after Khartoum agreed to normalize.

Trump administration officials have said they expect more countries to agree to normalize with Israel before Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20th. Some officials hope Saudi Arabia and Oman will be next, although the Saudis are expected to hold out for a while unless the US offers a generous enough reward.

Oh yeah! Give them weapons…. We all know who makes the money there. Give them cash. We all know Americans are suffering due to businesses be shuttered and millions of jobs lost over a fake virus. That’s part of the new MMT (Magic Money Tree) theory. Doesn’t matter if we put you out of work,,, we just print what we need. And since it’s OUR money now we can do with it what we want.

Like printing money has never been tried before.

Check out the millions in payoffs to all these countries for locking down their people that’s in the new covid package Con-gress just passed. Yeah, tell me it’s to help those poor people in those nations.

Boy, it’s telling when you have to bribe nations to pretend they like another lawless nation. Principled people in this world are becoming a scarce commodity.

Edit:

For these reasons, the 115th Congress created a new international development tool in the form of the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation (DFC). Introduced as the BUILD Act in 2018, the bill was passed by unanimous bipartisan majorities in both the House and Senate.

Need I say more…

We should consider ourselves lucky that they aren’t giving them any military advisors.

Wouldn’t it be better, Muslim Indonesia would normalize the relations with its own Christian minority?

But burning churches are less important for America. Because a good servant knows what his master is wishing.

One question is remaining: Why does America celebrate on July 4th Independenc Day?
