'Foreign Policy' dimes out AIPAC for warmongering Iran bill, but Maddow won't tell you that | mondoweiss

And you thought politics stops at the water’s edge? Two Democratic senators, Robert Menendez and Chuck Schumer (along with Republican warhorse Mark Kirk), are circulating a bill that would hamstring the Obama administration’s ability to negotiate with Iran by broadening sanctions. And the bill would compel the U.S. to stand behind Israel if it choo ...

As a signatory to the Non Proliferation Treaty, Iran accepts continuing IAEA inspection and has an internationally recognized right to develop and implement nuclear technology. Having rejected both IAEA inspection and the NPT, Israel has no such right. Yet the Jewish State has hundreds of nukes and openly threatens Iran, actually campaigns for war against Iran. Israel, not Iran, is the warmonger. Resolution lies with lifting all sanctions and compensating Iran for damages from the $$$ billions we will no longer be giving the Jewish state. American foreign policy must again serve American interests, not the Jewish state's paranoid pursuit of invulnerability, territorial conquest and racist empire in and beyond the Mideast.

I would have gone further and lobbied for a formal treaty of alliance between Israel and the US, as the US has with Japan, NATO, ANZUS and 40 countries worldwide. Israel has no formal treaties of alliance with any country or bloc. A formal treaty of alliance would constitutionally require the US to come to Israel's side just as an attack on Poland by Russia or by China on Japan would require the US to come to fight on the side of the formal ally. In that way, any attack on Israel or on the US requires both to fight, just as Britain had to go to war with Germany when it attacked Poland in 1939.

vast majority of American politicians are in the pockets of pro-Israeli lobby. The American media is mostly controlled by Jews and oters are cowed into saying nothing about the powerful Israeli lobby and about Israel's actions against a just settlement of the conflict. As begin and Sharon said Isarel owns the congress. I don't see any way out of this. American electorate are not that aware and AIPAC will make sure they stay that way and get things in their won way. Canada has now come under full control of pro-sraeli lobby also. Canada has 0.5% of Jewish population but over 40% of its millionaires! They control levers of power there now and own Canda's congress and executive branch. Very bad omen for America and Canada. More wars will be waged in support of the spoiled brat Israel.

American news media is mostly Jewish owned and blatantly Israel/Jew biased. Our electoral process has been corrupted by AIPAC, the Jewish Conference of Presidents and more enormous amounts of Jewish money. Israel has occupied not just Palestine, but America too. The Wall Street felons remaining unpunished, AIPAC actually writing congressional legislation, and lack of treason indictments attest to the depth of the occupation. The Jewish state instigated all our Mideast wars and benefited from all. None were in American interests, yet we did the dying and suffered the Great Recession. Our diminished America is now being overthrown from within and transformed into a world dominating racist ultrapower, the JEWISH STATE OF AMERICA.

Iran did not have to join the NPT just as Isael, India and Pakistan refused to do. But it did join, and so is obligated not to develop any nuclear weapons, or do any research into their development. No country is forced to join a treaty that imperils its very exisence. Iran and most Muslim states do not recognize the right of a Jewish state to even exist, and so Israel was very wise not to join the NPT and not to declare anything regarding its nuclear work. Until all Musim and other states recognize Jewish sovereignty over their ancient land there is no hope of true peace in that part of the world.
