On this edition of The TGB Report, I try to give a broad view of the complexities that are involved in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and it’s origins. The aspects discussed deal with the creation of Israel, the role of each side, outside influences and much more.
The creation of Israel starts back at the end of WWII 1948 when Palestine was sectioned off to create a homeland for the Jews by the United Nations. This land was then formally recognized as Israel on May 14, 1948 the day they Declared their Independence. This not only angered the Palestinian people who whom had their homes taken and businesses destroyed but made the Palestinian people permanent refugees as they where not welcome in Israel as equal citizens and could not apply for citizenship in other nations that are part of the Arab League.
The show goes into the creation of Hamas and how it was originally created by Israel’s Shin Bet (Israel’s Intelligence Agency) to reduce the power of Yasser Arafat’s Palestine Liberation Organization. Sadly, much like the U.S. plan back in the 80′s to radicalize Muslims and partner with with this Saudi fellow named Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden to take on the U.S.S.R and drive them out of Afghanistan.
The American people would be shocked if they knew the extent of the aid and support financially and military that the U.S. provides to Israel and then turns around and pays for the rebuilding of facilities in Gaza and other Palestinian areas that our money and weapons where used to destroy.
Here is the link to a report produced by the website If American Knew Feb. 7, 2014 that outlines U.S. aid to Israel cost taxpayers.

Here is a video that outlines U.S. aid to Israel as well.
The TGB Report is a show about freedom and liberty. Focusing on the truth in political and economic news. Tom will not pull punches or compromise his core believes of classical liberalism in the model of Thomas Jefferson in his fight against government and corporate oppression of the American People.
