"An AIPAC Policy Conference panel titled "Stopping Iran" had some unexpected speakers: activists with Occupy AIPAC and CODEPINK who stood up and "mic checked" Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Israeli Ambassador Jeremy Issacharoff. At about 2pm on March 5, four activists called out AIPAC for pushing for American support for an Israeli attack on Iran. One activist was violently attacked by an AIPAC member who used his tie to strangle the peaceful protester... Take Action: Tell Congress and Obama: No War On Iran! Sign the petition at www.occupyaipac.org"

Here's what I thinkby Reality-Bites on Wed Mar 07, 2012 03:48 AM PST
I think it was great that protesters got in the AIPAC meeting to complain at this orgnaizations war mongering mentality and threats against Iran.
But does anyone here think that protesters can do the same with the other side of this confrontation and gatecrash meetings of the Islamic Republic bigwigs and complain to them to stop their threats against Israel and cooperate with the IAEA on the nuke program....without being taken away for torture and execution, afterwards?

NO to promoting after-war mental disability in Iran.by Farfromheaven2002 on Tue Mar 06, 2012 06:08 PM PST
"World War II saw the development in the U.S. of a new psychiatric manual for categorizing mental disorders, which along with existing systems for collecting census and hospital statistics led to the first Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) also developed a section on mental disorders. The term stress, having emerged out of endocrinology work in the 1930s, was increasingly applied to mental disorders."

Wellby hirre on Tue Mar 06, 2012 12:01 PM PST
War is not so bad, because a war always ends... Lobby groups however are poison... I have some israeli friends (real israeli) and not these american jews. Many of them are against AIPAC and their current israeli government. They feel AIPAC represents the corporate jewish-americans will and not the jewish-israeli will and I also believe this is true...
"War Benefits The %1"by iraj khan on Tue Mar 06, 2012 11:59 AM PST
This is what the brave female demonstrator said before she was ejected from the meeting.
And this is what I learned for myself during the destructive Iran/Iraq war. I learned there were those who were making a lot of money becasue of that war.
The profiteering of war mongers were proven to me once again during the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq.
It's our duty as human beings to stay active by signing any petition or attending any demonstration in order stop the war that this Republican war monger in U.S. Congress is advocating.
Thanks for posting this video.

Hirre: Mass killing of people is wrong, dead wrong...by Bavafa on Tue Mar 06, 2012 11:06 AM PST
And just because the Zionist are in a drive to push Palestinians off their land and in the process destroy their lives primary and now Iranians by pushing for war, this does not justify for a wish of mass killing them.
'Hambastegi' is the main key to victory

If only Schutzstaffel would have targeted the zionists instead of all of the jews we wouldn't have had an AIPAC or the middle-east crisis...
