On October 17, 1963, Judge Rifkind, representing the AZC, asked that they not be required to register as a foreign agent, since "it would eventually destroy the Zionist movement."
The plea was denied by JFK's DOJ, led by his brother, Robert Kennedy. But we all know who got destroyed one month later, don't we.
AIPAC is the growth that came out of the AZC that is running this country and the brothers Kennedy were both cut down by an unknown assassin's bullet(s).
With LBJ as president, the LOBBY was NOT required to register.
"Israel controls the U.S. Senate. The Senate is subservient, much too much; we should be more concerned about U.S. interests rather than doing the bidding of Israel. The great majority of the Senate of the U.S. - somewhere around 80% - is completely in support of Israel; anything Israel wants; Israel gets. This has been demonstrated time and again, and this has made [foreign policy] difficult for our government."
Senator J. William Fulbright, in a CBS Face the Nation interview on April 15, 1973,
Back in the early 1960's, before our Senate became AIPAC's whipping boy, hearings were held on Israel!
Imagine that, holding Senate hearings on that nation of liars, land thieves, racists, murderers, bigots, false-flag experts, con artists and assassins, Israel!
Just think what might of happened if the American Zionist Council had been required to register as agents of a foreign government. 34 US personnel on the USS Liberty might still be alive, the WTC might still be standing and American kids would not be fighting and dying in wars for Israel in Iraq and Afghanistan.
