The U.S. Congress: The Israeli Organ Grinder Monkey

By: Paul Findley

There is an open secret in Washington. I learned it well during my 22-year tenure as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. All members swear to serve the interests of the United States, but there is an unwritten and overwhelming exception: The interests of one small foreign country almost always trump U.S. interests. That nation of course is Israel.

Both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue give priority to Israel over America. Those on Capitol Hill are pre-primed to roar approval for Israeli actions whether right or wrong, instead of at least fussing first and then caving.

The pro-Israel lobby is not one organization orchestrating U.S. Middle East policy from a backroom in Washington. Nor is it entirely Jewish. It consists of scores of groups -- large and small -- that work at various levels. The largest, most professional, and most effective is the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Many pro-Israel lobby groups belong to the Christian Right.

The recently released book, "The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy," co-authored by distinguished professors John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago and Stephen Walt of Harvard, offers hope for constructive change. It details the damage to U.S. national interests caused by the lobby for Israel. These brave professors render a great service to America, but their theme, expressed in a published study paper a year ago, is already under heavy, vitriolic attack.

They are unjustly accused of anti-Semitism, the ultimate instrument of intimidation employed by the lobby. A common problem: Under pressure, the Chicago Council on Global Affairs withdrew an invitation for the authors to speak about their book. Council president Marshall Bouton explained ruefully that the invitation posed "a political problem" and a need "to protect the institution" from those who would be angry if the authors appeared.

TEXT

America's federal government, from the White House to the halls of Congress, has been taken over by agents of a foreign power.

This power has no scruples, conscience or ethics. It's an amoral agent, only acting on orders from its home base.

This power has enslaved our Congress like so many trick doggies, who know they will be rewarded with a treat AFTER they perform tricks for their Master.

These tricks include shoveling BILLIONS and BILLIONS of US dollars each year to this foreign power. The trick doggies, not content with that, then hand over billions and billions of US money in the form of weapons and satellite intelligence.

Still not content with that, these trick doggies know they must prostitute themselves like so many crack whores, desperate for another fix by giving political cover to any and all misdeeds this power commits back home, even going so far as to look the other way while this foreign power commits genocide on its indigenous people.

What is the name of this barbaric, medieval country that has the conscience of a hyena and the morals of a slimy, poisonous toad? ISRAEL.
