Congress’ Dirty [Seven] Dozen on Aipac All-Expense-Paid Israel JunketOur country is coming apart, with the recession turning into another "Great Depression, Part II" both engineered by the Zionist owned, Jewish run Federal Reserve and these clowns are 'kibbutzing' in STOLENLAND?
Pork may be treif, but not when it’s dished out by the pro-Israel lobby.
81 members of Congress are now in Israel on an all-expense paid junket sponsored by Aipac’s nominally non-profit American-Israel Education Foundation. The value of the trip for the member and spouse is $8,000, meaning Aipac is forking over nearly $700,000 to fund this massive hasbara undertaking.
In the interest of transparency and knowing where our tax dollars are spent, I thought it would be important to list every name of every junketeer so their constituents can know that their member is on the pro-Israel gravy train. Here are the 33 I’ve discovered so far (please add more in the thread below):

[Hank is the stooge that replaced Cynthia McKinney from Georgia being too 'uppity' when it came to bowing down before Apartheid Israel]
A terrific website, Legistorm, tracks such junkets and offers a listing of all Congress members and staffers who’ve gone to AIEF’s trough for Israel trips. It also lays out the specific costs of each trip. AIEF’s $26 million annual budget gives you a good idea how much is spent each year on this lobbying boondoggle.
What I find ironic is that Congress has just spent weeks dodging one of the worst economic bullets to hit the U.S. since the 2008 financial meltdown. And it did a piss poor job of dealing with it. So now that they failed so miserably at doing their jobs here in Washington, they’re going to reward themselves with some much-needed sun, fun and hasbara on Tel Aviv beaches and in Israeli government conference rooms. In their briefings, which are ostensibly "fair and balanced," here’s who they won’t be meeting: leaders of the J14 protest movement which is sweeping the Israeli street; Hamas, which represents approximately one-half of the Palestinian electorate; or Israeli Palestinian community leaders (or MKs).
Just stay there, shitheads, nobody will miss you.
And stop giving OUR money away to these Holocaust™ con artists, we need it to rebuild our damaged economy.

AIPACing For Israel
To see if you Senator or Rep. has slithered over to Israel lately, check out a site called:
American Israel Education Foundation - Sponsor of Congressional Travel
Congressman Pat Meehan (R-PA) wrote a blog asking for comments about his trip to Israel. The comments were negative and he removed them. Here's one that was saved on the 'Lunatic Outpost blog:
"Well, it's not like you have anything more important to do in your own country. We're so lucky to have misrepresentatives like you that put the agenda of another country before the needs of your own people who elected you to office and pay your salary.
We know you need a vacation from accepting campaign contributions from mega-corporations, Wall St and Israel. We will be happy to accommodate you all. All the dual citizens, Israel-firsters, endless war and occupation supporters, transnationalists, open border/North American Union traitors, central bank supporters bringing our country to destruction as the Congress go on indoctri-cation in Israel, you all need to be removed from office ASAP.
Give the war crimes a break, stop making us more enemies by colluding to attack Iran and Syria next with another government that is also committing war crimes, even against US! Remember the Israeli spy rings in America, the aid flotilla, the USS Liberty, and the Dancing Israelis on 9/11. Get a grip on who you are sucking up to."
AIPAC Congratulates Itself for the Slaughter in Lebanon'Position Papers?' The only 'position' these traitors are assuming is getting down on their knees in front of Apartheid Israel's psychotic leaders, with both mouth and hand open, hoping for a load in both.
"My fellow American," Howard Friedman, President of AIPAC, begins his letter of July 30 to friends and supporters of AIPAC, "Look what you've done"! After warning that "Israel is fighting a pivotal war for its life," by which he means Israel's wanton slaughter and all-out destruction in Lebanon, Freiedman condemns "the expected chorus of international condemnation of Israel's actions" and Europe's call for "a cease-fire immediately." Then he exults: "only ONE nation in the world came out and flatly declared: Let Israel finish the job. . That nation is the United States of America--and the reason it had such a clear, unambiguous view of the situation is YOU and the rest of America Jewry."
"How do we do it"? President Friedman asks a little further on. The answer is "decades of long hard work which never ends."
"AIPAC meets with every candidate running for Congress. These candidates receive in-depth briefings to help them completely understand the complexities of Israel's predicament and that of the Middle East as a whole. We even ask each candidate to author a 'position paper' on their views of the U.S.-Israel relationship--so it's clear where they stand on the subject." (Would it not be great to see these "position papers"? I wonder how many candidates would release them?)

Busted! Haaretz scrubs story about IDF impersonating HamasIsraeli Jews posing as 'Arabs?' Like the ones who helped pull off the FALSE FLAG/INSIDE JOB of 9/11?
"By Way Of Deception Thou Shalt Do War." - the official motto of Mossad
The story of Israeli Defense Force troops impersonating Hamas militants somehow made it onto the Haaretz news wire. Blacklisted News was able to snag a screen capture before Haaretz purged the story from the site.
