AIPAC Espionage

April 29, 2009

AIPAC, Espionage and the US-Israel Free Trade Agreement.

American industries were shocked when the FBI began investigating AIPAC for obtaining and distributing the 300 page report containing their trade secrets titled “Probable Economic Effect of Providing Duty Free Treatment for U.S. Imports from Israel, Investigation No. 332-180” in the midst of the negotiations. The ITC later confirmed that the Israeli government also obtained the still-classified report. The document contains business confidential trade secrets, market share, inventory, delivery costs, internal production costs and other highly sensitive data US industries submitted under strict confidence to urge the best possible outcome for US businesses.

Israel determines US Policy

April 25, 2009

Israel’s FM Lieberman: U.S. will accept any Israeli policy decision.

… “Believe me, America accepts all our decisions,” Lieberman told the Russian daily Moskovskiy Komosolets.

During the interview, Lieberman said Iran is not Israel’s biggest strategic threat; rather, Afghanistan and Pakistan are.

This comes after years of Lieberman warning about the growing Iranian threat. Now, he has dropped Tehran to number two, with Iraq coming third.

TAVAKOLI: Well, so far they’ve gotten away with the largest Ponzi scheme in the history of the capital markets …

LAMB: Gotten away with it?

TAVAKOLI: … It dwarfs. They’ve gotten away with it so far.

LAMB: Kept a lot of their own money?

TAVAKOLI: Yes. It dwarfs what Madoff did. …

This has been a huge crime on the American economy and so far, people aren’t being held accountable and we’re bailing out a lot of bad guys no questions asked. In some cases, we have to recapitalize the financial system, but the money that we’ve thrown in has, you know, been like throwing water on sand because we really needed to put some of these institutions into receivership. …

Israel Snubs Obama’s Peace Efforts

April 18, 2009

Plan for Palestinian state is ‘dead end,’ Israel tells U.S.

JERUSALEM — In a direct challenge to President Barack Obama’s commitment to rejuvenate moribund Mideast peace talks, Israel on Thursday dismissed American-led efforts to establish a Palestinian state and laid out new conditions for renewed negotiations.

Leaders of Israel’s hawkish new government told former Maine Sen. George Mitchell, the special U.S. envoy, that they aren’t going to rush into peace talks with their Palestinian neighbors. …

Mitchell made it clear that the Obama administration sees the two-state solution as the foundation for future talks. …

Netanyahu has refused to embrace that formula and has instead floated the idea of offering Palestinians limited rights that would fall short of independence. …

Senior U.S. officials in Washington and New York are leaning in favor of participating in the “Durban 2” UN-sponsored anti-racism conference scheduled to take place on April 20 in Geneva…

Dozens of human rights groups and activists in the United States have petitioned President Barack Obama to rethink his decision to boycott the conference, expected by many countries to be used as a forum for criticizing Israel. ….

Israel’s Death Culture

April 10, 2009

[B]USA must abandon Israel’s destructive paranoia.[/B]

… Persecutory paranoia is defined as “the most prevalent type of paranoia; the patient makes himself believe that all those around him are his enemies, bent on harming him or even taking his life. In this delusion people of an aggressive temperament often turn dangerous killers.

A perfect fit for Israel. While America has been acting in a feeding frenzy for Israel’s paranoia, it can choose not to. According to mental health experts, “paranoia is incurable. The best course is to discharge the patient for the sake of the supporter’s health.” In short: leave Israel to its sickness.
