Rulers and Ruled by US Empire

[B]“Rulers and Ruled in the US Empire: Bankers, Zionists and Militants”[/B] by Professor James Petras. (Snips)

… The role of the Zionist Lobby in America is examined as it relates to the catastrophic wars in Iraq and Lebanon, and the threat of a further attack on Iran. A mounting schism within the US ruling elite between its pro-Zionist sector concerned with advancing the interests of Israel, and the traditional ruling elite concerned with protecting US imperial interests worldwide is addressed ….

    “For 47 Years, a Lobby Group With Muscle Has Tirelessly Tended U.S.-Israel Ties.” – AIPAC (Snips)
     
    AIPAC’s main influence and domination is in Congress although it certainly impacts all levels of the U.S. Government. Its main concern is U.S. foreign policy vis à vis Israel, the Middle East, and the Muslim world in general. It has succeeded for decades in preventing the development of any good relations between the Arab, Muslim world and the U.S. It focuses primarily on diplomatic, military, and financial aid to Israel as well as forcing the adoption of Israel’s enemies as America’s enemies so that what’s good for Israel is automatically good for America; yet if all of that is true, why have a lobby?

    The very word AIPAC strikes the deepest fear and intimidation into the very souls of every American politician from the smallest town in America to the White House, Congress and the Supreme Court. This lobby for decades has demonstrated its power in electing subservient Congressmen and destroying those who dare speak against Israel. Every new Congressmen gets a crash course on how to respond when AIPAC calls, or else. It indoctrinates our politicians through what it calls “educational trips” to Israel, all expenses paid. It trains Jewish interns and staffers to join Congressional offices. It has a national network of stealth political action committees (PAC’s) in every state ready to donate campaign money to the pandering politician, attack Israel’s opponents, rapidly respond to any hint of criticism of divine Israel, provide staffers to Governors and State Legislatures, and have media savvy spokespersons dominate media reporting. ..
