Lone Congresswoman Calls Out Trump for Insane Arms Deal With Human Rights Violator Saudi Arabia


(Isaac Davis) As Western nations are being told to brace for more terror attacks like Manchester, mainstream media continues to simplify the narrative for public consumption, hoping that the general public will believe this is just a simple struggle between good and evil, black and white, right and wrong. There are some, however, who are telling the whole story.

Hawaii State Representative Tulsi Gabbard however, has been working to expose the truth and strike the roots of international terror. After actually traveling to Syria she introduced the Stop Arming Terrorists Act, which acknowledges that ISIS and other terror organizations would not exist without our financial and material support. Now she has condemned Trump’s recent arms deal with Saudi Arabia, one of the world’s most egregious human rights violators.

President Trump, who during his campaign said he would hold Saudi Arabia accountable for 9/11 and would put them in their place, just signed the largest arms deal ever, promising to outfit the House of Saud with some $350 billion worth of arms over the next decade.
“The agreement included an arms deal; almost $110 billion worth of defense capabilities, the White House reports. “This package of defense equipment and services supports the long-term security of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region in the face of malign Iranian influence and Iranian related threats,” wrote the Trump administration officials.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard’s comments regarding this development are so far the only remarks from a U.S. Congressperson which actually honor the truth in how turmoil in the Middle East is perpetuated by Western governments, especially through arms deals.
Gabbard, a Democrat, blasted the deal – which she said includes an additional $350 billion over the next 10 years – saying Saudi Arabia is “a country with a devastating record of human rights violations at home and abroad, and a long history of providing support to terrorist organizations that threaten the American people.”

“Saudi Arabia is the world’s largest sponsor and propagator of the extremist Wahhabi Salafist ideology that fuels terrorist groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda,” a media release from Rep. Gabbard stated. “Based on Saudi Arabia’s history and track record, there is a significant likelihood these weapons will be used against innocent civilians or end up in the hands of terrorist groups.”

“Saudi Arabia has spent hundreds of billions of dollars spreading their extreme Wahhabi Salafist ideology around the world, creating fertile ground for terrorist organizations like ISIS and al-Qaeda to recruit, while simultaneously providing direct support to terrorist groups who pose a direct threat to US interests and who are fighting to overthrow the Syrian government. The hypocrisy in the Trump administration’s actions toward Saudi Arabia began in February 2017 with the newly-appointed CIA Director Mike Pompeo presenting Saudi Crown Prince bin Nayef with the George Tenet Award in recognition of Prince bin Nayef’s ‘excellent intelligence performance, in the domain of counter-terrorism and his unbound contribution to realise world security and peace.’ This hypocrisy continues now as the Trump administration talks tough against ISIS and terrorism, while selling weapons to, supporting, and praising a country that beheads dissidents, oppresses women, persecutes religious minorities, atheists, and LGBT people, and is the greatest supporter of terror groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS in the world today. This arms deal will enable Saudi Arabia to use U.S.-made weapons in their war crimes against Yemeni civilians in a brutal civil war, and continue perpetuating human rights atrocities at home and abroad,” said Rep. Tulsi Gabbard.

The arms deal runs contrary proposed bipartisan legislation supported by Gabbard: H.R. 608, the Stop Arming Terrorists Act, which Gabbard says “would prohibit any Federal agency from using taxpayer dollars to provide weapons, cash, intelligence, or any support to armed militants who are allied with al-Qaeda, ISIS and other terrorist groups, and it will prohibit the U.S. government from funneling money and weapons through other countries like Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Qatar who are directly or indirectly supporting terrorists.”

Gabbard says she recently sent a letter to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis “urging an end to the United States’ military participation in Yemen’s civil war, where 19 million people need emergency support and which has never been authorized by Congress, and calling for a Congressional briefing on the White House’s strategy in Yemen.” [Source]



Final Thoughts

As ISIS takes credit for bombings like we just witnessed in Manchester, it is critical that we connect the dots on this international terror organization, and Gabbard’s comments remind us that these organizations are the result of our actions in the Middle East which continually inflame the region by supplying weapons and finances. Even President El-Sisi of Egypt recently called out Trump and King Salman of Saudi Arabia for aiding and abetting ISIS.
