    Obama and Netanyahu: The revolutionary vs. the conservative

    Netanyahu presented the American president with his four No’s: No to a retreat to the 1967 borders, no to a retreat from the Jordan River, no to negotiations with Hamas, and no to a return of refugees to the Jewish state. …

    The prime minister came to the White House to lecture the U.S. president on 4,000 years of Jewish history ….. probably imagining himself as a modern-day Moses or Herzl. ….

    “No lobby has managed to divert U.S. foreign policy as far from the American national interest… while simultaneously convincing Americans that U.S. and Israeli interests are essentially identical.”– John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt – keynote speakers at Move-Over-AIPAC. http://www.moveoveraipac.org/

    Few Americans are aware of the enormous influence the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) wields over U.S. foreign adventures – especially in the Middle East.

    Netanyahu Sets Limits for Obama.

    Special Report: President Barack Obama got an Oval Office lecture from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about how far Obama may deviate from Israel’s positions on Mideast peace. This public rebuke raises questions about whether Netanyahu will now try to sink Obama’s reelection the way earlier Likud leaders undermined President Jimmy Carter, reports Robert Parry…

    Although it is not often reported by the press, a large proportion of American diplomatic and military experts have long held that U.S. support of Israel is often contrary to and, in fact, extremely damaging to U.S. Interests ….

    ‘US lawmakers forced to support Israel’ …. AIPAC controls the funding of their elections.

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Netanyahu is not ready for any agreement, any concession, any withdrawal; as far as he’s concerned, it’s all the Land of Israel.

    … As far as he’s concerned, it’s all the Land of Israel – for both historical and security reasons. All the rest is just words. Just speeches designed to relieve some of the pressure being applied by U.S. President Barack Obama. Just bluff and deception.

    … “AIPAC is an organisation that puts Israel’s interests before America’s interests. Always pushing the US for wars, using their money and influence to support Israel’s apartheid, war crimes, and violations of International law,” said Dina Kennedy of the DC chapter of the US Palestinian Community Network. “This year’s protest is by far the largest, which indicates that more and more Americans are seeing AIPAC for what it really is, un-American.” … http://weekly.ahram.org.eg/2011/1049/re3.htm

    AIPAC: A Lobby Without Parallel

    …. AARP and every other power lobby one can name (including the NRA, PhRMA, AHIP and the Chamber of Commerce) advocate for U.S. interests, as it sees them. (The AARP represents tens of millions of Americans over age 50 and the NRA represents millions of American gun enthusiasts.) AIPAC, on the other hand, gets its direction from a foreign government. If the Israeli government decides it will give up, say, downtown Hebron, AIPAC will say the same almost immediately. ….

    Criticizing Israeli policies is, thanks to AIPAC, the “new third rail” of American politics, … AIPAC is the only lobby that both Democrats and Republics fear challenging. ….

    http://tiny.cc/xomeu

    … [AIPAC] has been extraordinarily successful at mobilizing the Jewish vote, and while it does not directly contribute to campaigns, its vast membership does. …

    … AIPAC has a “stranglehold on the US Congress” due to its ability to reward legislators and candidates who support its agenda, and to punish those opposing it. …

    [B]76 Senators sign on to Israel letter[/B]

    More than three quarters of the U.S. Senate, including 38 Democrats, have signed on to a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton implicitly rebuking the Obama Administration for its confrontational stance toward Israel.

    The letter, backed by the pro-Israel group AIPAC, now has the signatures of 76 Senators and says in part:

    We recognize that our government and the Government of Israel will not always agree on particular issues in the peace process. But such differences are best resolved amicably and in a manner that befits longstanding strategic allies. We must never forget the depth and breadth of our alliance and always do our utmost to reinforce a relationship that has benefited both nations for more than six decades.

    A similar letter garnered 333 signatures in the House, and its support marks almost unified Republican support for Benjamin Netanyahu’s government, along with strong, but more divided, public Democratic discomfort with Obama’s policies in the region.

    More than three quarters of the U.S. Senate, including 38 Democrats, have signed on to a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton implicitly rebuking the Obama Administration for its confrontational stance toward Israel.

    Signatories include key Democrats like Armed Services Chairman Carl Levin, Chuck Schumer, and Robert Menendez as well as all but four Republicans, with signers including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, John McCain, and Scott Brown.

    Majority Whip Dick Durbin, however, did not sign; nor did Foreign Relations Chairman John Kerry and ranking member Richard Lugar.

    The full Senate letter, circulated by Senators Barbara Boxer and Johnny Isakson, is here:
