Bloomington Township Electors Vote Down Anti Israel Ballot Question

A resident of Blooming Township circulated the needed 15 signatures required to hold a special Township meeting of the electors.  The purpose was to have the electors vote on what we see as a clear anti-Israel ballot question.

“Shall the United States federal government and subordinate divisions stop giving military funding to Israel, which currently costs taxpayers 3.8 billion dollars a year, given Israel’s global recognition as an apartheid regime with a track record of human rights violations?”

After the election of a moderator to conduct the meeting, both proponents and opponents of the matter were given three minutes each to speak.

Once the hearing portion of the meeting was concluded a vote was taken and the matter was voted down 88/28.

After it was voted down most of the supporters of it walked out before the public comment portion of the meeting began.

We agree with voting this matter down as the Township Government has no powers granted that have anything to do with funding to our allies.

This same process was attempted in other townships across the state and appeared to be more about using a Township Code provision to get attention rather than addressing a policy consideration within township government powers.

The entire meeting video is below but is set to begin with public comment.  The first public commenter was a student from ISU.

    Bunch of lefties from the local colleges just trying to get attention for their latest misguided crusade. Glad it got crushed when it was put to a vote.

    People hate Israel because they hate Jesus. Jesus was Jewish. God says, I will bless those who bless Israel, and curse those who curse her, and also, pray for the peace of Jerusalem, I will prosper those who love her. Pretty straight forward there.

    I’m not a lefty or an ‘antisemite’ (whatever that is these days), but we are being ruled by many corrupt dual citizens , primarily Israeli, who have been undermining our culture and institutions for decades. The control these people have attained over the past 100+ years will shock many as the age of information catches up with the BS. You guys do great work. Thank you.

    The Israel you are talking about in today’s world is not the Israel of the Bible. Zionists Jews are not religious Jewish people.. They are thugs who lead the USA (and the world) around by the nose and give Jewish people a bad rap.
