Focus on AIPAC

AIPAC’s Power Base. (Snips)

Our entire government is controlled by Israel! Through a small, rich and powerful Jewish supported pro-Israeli tax-exempt lobby, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or simply AIPAC, virtually all American domestic and foreign policy is now being controlled by a foreign government entanglement. This is done by targeting American politicians: those who are pro-Israel receive campaign funding and favorable publicity through a myriad of Jewish organizations, magnified by the liberal and Democratic Party-leaning American press; those politicians not favoring policies benefiting Israel are targeted by Jews all over America who send money to help finance that politician’s opponent. ….

“WINEP, being a wing of AIPAC, is enormously influential in Washington. State Department and military personnel are actually detailed there to ‘learn’ about ‘the Middle East’! ….

AIPAC and the neoconservative Likudniks in the Pentagon and in the Bush administration today represent the greatest threat to world peace. They are plotting to ignite hostilities that could ratchet up to World War III. …

American Election: An Illusion of Democracy. (Snips) …

 It has become obvious to more people the great effect the Israeli Lobby (AIPAC) has on determining who the American president is, and what foreign policy he adopts even though such policies harm the interest of the American people. This Israeli Lobby should be called by its real name; the Zionist Lobby, for politicians serving the interests of this lobby do not necessarily have to be Israelis or Jews as Vice President candidate Joe Biden put it: “I am a Zionist. You don’t have to be a Jew to be a Zionist”. …

The road to the White House goes through this Zionist Israeli Lobby. At the podium of this lobby every candidate must pledge unconditional allegiance and service to Israel … Every candidate must visit Israel and pay homage to Israeli myths at Yad Vashem in order to receive the blessing of American Jewish financiers …

Judge allows Rosen lawsuit agains AIPAC. (snips)

WASHINGTON (JTA) — A judge is allowing Steve Rosen’s defamation lawsuit against AIPAC to go ahead. In a decision handed down Oct. 30 and made available on Tuesday, Judge Jeanette Clark of the District of Columbia Superior Court narrowed the scope of Rosen’s suit against his former employer; it rests now on a single statement Patrick Dorton, a contracted spokesman for the American Israel Public Affairs Commiteee, made to the New York Times on March 3, 2008. At that time, Dorton alleged that Rosen, AIPAC’s former foreign policy chief, had been fired in March 2005 because he “did not comport with standards that AIPAC expects of its employees.” …

    Declassified FBI file: AIPAC staffer spied for Israel. (Snips)

    A newly declassified Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) file indicates that an Israeli intelligence agent was among the staff members of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). …

    Department of Defense Employee Col. Lawrence Franklin who was indicted along with the AIPAC workers in 2005, however, pleaded guilty to the charges, admitting that he had provided classified information about Iran to two AIPAC employees.

    Apparently the Israeli agent had promised to facilitate the appointment of (US. Rep. Jane Harman , California) as the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee in exchange for the information.

    It is widely believed that the 1984 and 2005 espionage incidents were not isolated events.

    As part of a defamation lawsuit he has launched against AIPAC, Rosen intends to show that obtaining and leveraging classified US government information in the service of Israel is common practice at AIPAC.

    He claims it was unfair for AIPAC to fire and smear him in the press after he was indicted on espionage charges in 2005. AIPAC lawyers, however, are hoping to get the case thrown out on technicalities before it goes to trial in early 2010.

    AIPAC, considered the most powerful and connected lobbying group in Washington, is known for the influence that it holds over US foreign policy.

    Former US president Jimmy Carter has also accused AIPAC of putting a great deal of pressure on politicians running for office who do not share AIPAC goals.

    AIPAC Received Classified US Trade Docs from Israeli Embassy – Irmep. (Snips)

    WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A FBI file reveals the Israeli embassy passed stolen classified US government information to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). In 1984 Israel and AIPAC jointly lobbied Congress to secure preferential Israeli access to the US market against widespread American industry opposition.

    The declassified FBI report may be downloaded from the Israel Lobby Archive at:

    European Friends of Israel (EFI) – The Israel Lobby of Europe.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Friends_of_Israel

    2008: The organization, “European Friends of Israel,” already has 150 members from the European Parliament. The body is backed financially by Jewish businessmen.

    Lobby members decided to make their activities as a pan-European lobby official and to network Israel supporters among members of the European Parliament and in national parliaments where no such lobby currently exists. The organization also aims to strengthen ties between existing pro-Israel groups across the continent and to help to improve Israel’s image in Europe.

    The opening event will host Knesset members from Israel. The Israeli Foreign Ministry gave its blessing to the formation of the organization and instructed its European embassies to assist and cooperate with it. Officials in the Foreign Ministry said that it is an important initiative in light of the current relationship between Israel and the European Union.

    Michel Gur-Ari, head of the organization, said that the lobby intends to help transform Europe into an ally of Israel.

    Is the Israel lobby doing more harm than good?

    [Ref:] .. the documentary on Channel 4 this week – “Inside Britain’s Israel Lobby” ….

    … You’d have to be particularly ill-informed to be surprised that well-connected, pro-Israeli groups try to lobby the main British political parties and that wealthy individuals connected to such groups donate large sums to the parties and many members of Parliament. It’s also well known that they also fly many MPs over to Israel on fact-finding visits and that some believe that this influences these politicians’ attitudes and their parties’ policies regarding Israel and the Middle East conflict. Hardly surprising. …

    the real problem with today’s Israel lobby, in Britain and the United States, is not with its finances and their lack of transparency but with its entire mind-set. The basic fact is that by its actions, the lobby is now causing Israel more harm than good. That’s the point Oborne almost totally missed. On every level – moral, political, diplomatic, economic, military and religious – this country is being rapidly corrupted and damaged by the continuing occupation of the West Bank. By granting blanket support to all policies of whatever Israeli government happens to be in power, and by branding critics of these policies as either self-hating Jews or anti-Semites, they’re contributing to Israel’s siege mentality and delaying the day when Israelis will finally realize that there’s only one practical and ethical alternative.

    In this sense at least, Oborne was right to make the connection between the political lobbying and the relentless pressure on the media which has totally blurred the lines between legitimate criticism and real bias. These knee-jerk reactions to any form of criticism have become so second nature to the Israel lobbyists that they’re now trying to stifle debate even within the Israeli media. Their shrill reactions to the eyewitness accounts of soldiers who fought in Gaza and were brave enough to say that the IDF did not always act there as “the most moral army in the world” are a good example.

    The new Israel lobby in Canada —

    the Canadian Council for Israel and Jewish Advocacy (CIJA) — has enormous power, derived from abundant resources, corporate connections, political associations, elaborate and able organization and a cadre of dedicated activists. …

    Since its inception several years ago, this hard-line lobby has used its power, first, to gain political hegemony and impose ideological conformity on the matter of Israel within a heretofore diverse Jewish community, and second, to influence government decisions and shape public opinion regarding Israel — ostensibly in the name of all Canadian Jewry. From the outset, a primary focus of this lobby’s attentions has been the university campus, alleged centre of anti-Israel sentiment, conveniently construed as anti-semitism. …

    According to the Forward, one observer described the CIJA’s incorporation of the CJC and the CIC as a “hostile takeover,” while another told the Toronto Star that it amounted to a “coup d’état by powerful financial interests bent on cementing their control over Jewish advocacy activities in the country,” adding that “these guys are used to getting their way.” “This is a group of self-appointed people who have very little linkage with the Jewish [masses] and they have private agendas of their own,” Thomas Hecht, former Quebec chair of the CIC, pointed out. …

    “The underlying theme is a total centralization of Jewish thought, opinion, and messaging. It’s an attempt to silence the activists in our community.” … a hijacking of Jewish identity in Canada by a well heeled and politically well connected cabal of zealots. …
