The US is on the verge of enacting legislation to send $38 billion to Israel – the largest foreign-aid package in American history. Senator Rand Paul put a hold on the bill and may filibuster against it, incurring the wrath of the Zionist lobby.

Kentucky Republican, who is holding up $38 billion defense package, says he’ll introduce an amendment shortly
WASHINGTON (JTA) — Sen. Rand Paul acknowledged that he had placed a hold on major funding legislation for Israel, saying he wanted time limits on assistance to the Jewish state.
The Kentucky Republican also said he wanted cuts in aid to countries he says are hostile to the United States.
“While I’m not for foreign aid in general, if we are going to send aid to Israel it should be limited in time and scope so we aren’t doing it forever, and it should be paid for by cutting the aid to people who hate Israel and America,” Paul’s office said in an statement.
