Why are we sending BILLIONS to Israel while states go broke?
"The libels on me and their easily traceable email trails show conclusively that there is a powerful lobby determined to prevent any view other than its own from being aired, still less to factor in American understanding of trends and events in the Middle East.
The tactics of the Israel Lobby plumb the depths of dishonor and indecency and include character assassination, selective misquotation, the willful distortion of the record, the fabrication of falsehoods, and an utter disregard for the truth. The aim of this Lobby is control of the policy process through the exercise of a veto over the appointment of people who dispute the wisdom of its views, the substitution of political correctness for analysis, and the exclusion of any and all options for decision by Americans and our government other than those that it favors."
"I believe that the inability of the American public to discuss, or the government to consider, any option for U.S. policies in the Middle East opposed by the ruling faction in Israeli politics has allowed that faction to adopt and sustain policies that ultimately threaten the existence of the state of Israel. It is not permitted for anyone in the United States to say so," he wrote. "This is not just a tragedy for Israelis and their neighbors in the Middle East; it is doing widening damage to the national security of the United States."
Former Ambassador Chas Freeman's parting comments, who was savagely attacked by the MSM when he had been nominated to chair the National Intelligence Council.
His sin? Freeman described "Israeli violence against Palestinians" as a key barrier to Mideast peace. Freeman's biggest attacker was Steve Rosen, AIPAC lobbyist and spy for Israel.
America, everytime you wonder why our highways are in such poor shape or why our schools are overcrowded or why we don't have universal health insurance or why local, state and federal taxes seem to eat such a big chunk out of your wallet, find solace in the fact that OUR government is now sworn to put the interests of Apartheid Israel first and what we get out of that Faustian bargain is a never ending series of ME and south Asia wars being fought by American kids for the Jews and a debt being incurrred to fight those wars that our great-grandkids will still be paying off.
