This article looks at AIPAC’s influence in passing the recent resolution passed in the Senate which designated the Al Quds force in Iran as a terrorist group. This is pretty heavy stuff, the article points out, since now Iran is harboring a terrorist organization, we can attack them at any time according to Bush Doctrine. This article also goes into why most in Congress don’t vote against AIPAC.
“Ultimately the question comes back to why those 76 senators voted for a resolution that “wipes the desires of the American people off the map,” to borrow an intentionally falsified and reiterated translation of the Iranian President’s message to his people. But those 76 are not alone. Virtually everyone of our representatives are subservient to the same lobbies, passing on average 100 resolutions per year favorable to Israel and written by the lobbyists, obsequiously fawning before AIPAC’s annual meeting where its very existence is touted as of “significant benefit for both the United States and Israel,” and where no one dares to question or criticize the state of Israel lest they suffer the fate of those who have, and lose their seats in Congress. This one might argue is coercion. Can it be documented? One need only research the congressional and senate races that put Paul Findley, Cynthia McKenny, Charles Percy and the few other renegades that dared to be critical of Israel out of their positions. “The handful of members of Congress who have been critical of Israel over the last 40 years have been publicly chastised with a figurative dunce cap or, worse, lost their seats to AIPAC-backed opponents” (NewsMax.com, May 1, 2006. “Israel the Third Rail of American Foreign Policy,” Arnaud de Borchgrava, Editor at large of the Washington Times).”
