Is AIPAC really a friend of Israel or Jews?

by Steve Klein

(Who is representing Jewish interests in Washington? Not this lobby!)

Mrs. Clinton reportedly got standing ovations from AIPAC attendees.

AIPAC supported the Bush/Sharon "disengagement." In fact at AIPAC'S 2005 annual Washington convention, no anti-"disengagement" speaker was allowed to address the assembly.  Yoram Ettinger and others were banned.

AIPAC supports Israel's dismemberment into a Jewish state side by side a Muslim state, in addition to the one in Jordan.  AIPAC supports the establishment of a Muslim-terror state in Israel's historic heartland.  AIPAC supports a dependent, helpless Israel; an Israel dependent upon the largess and the goodwill of the US.   Is AIPAC really a friend of Israel or of Israel's Jews?

Who is Lobbying Who? New AIPAC Head, Lee Rosenberg, was Obama’s campaign finance man! (Is it another attempt made by the US administration, after a bogus spy investigation of AIPAC members, to tame and control the pro-Israel, if AIPAC can be actually called this, lobby.)

Burden of Proof Rests with Obama. An Army flight surgeon, Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, refusing further orders unless President Obama documents his eligibility to be commander in chief. He wrote: "You serve as my commander-in-chief. Given the fact that the certification that your campaign posted online was not a document that the Hawaiian Department of Homelands regarded as a sufficient substitute for the original birth certificate and given that it has been your personal decision that has prevented the Hawaiian Department of Health from releasing your original birth certificate or any Hawaiian hospital from releasing your records, the burden of proof must rest with you".

Another anti-Jewish insult from Obama – During Seder at the White House Obama did not bother to put kippah (yarmulke) on his head. No respect for Jews or G-d!

Another Fake Killing is Busted. A Gaza Arab teenager who was reported by the media as having been killed by the IDF has returned home alive and well, his family said short while ago. He had been in Egyptian custody. The Health Ministry in Gaza reported that Muhammad Zen Ismail Al-Farmawi, aged 15, was killed when the IDF opened fire on a 'Land Day' in Rafiah (Rafah), Gaza. The IDF denied involvement at the time, but the "death" was reported worldwide as true. (Why is the world media not in a rush to announce this miracle ‘resurrection’?)

Who are the Enemies of the United States? President Barack Obama's advisers will remove religious terms such as "Islamic extremism" from the central document outlining the U.S. national security strategy. The change is a significant shift in the National Security Strategy, a document that previously outlined the Bush Doctrine of preventative war and currently states: "The struggle against militant Islamic radicalism is the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21st century." (What Obama the administration is saying is that Islamic extremism doesn’t exist!)

Deporting Enemies. 1) Kuwaiti forces have arrested and deported supporters of the prominent Egyptian opposition figure Mohammed ElBaradei. So far, 21 Egyptian residents of Kuwait have been deported. 2) Israel's military has issued new orders - Under the new rules, anyone caught living in the West Bank without an Israeli permit could face expulsion within as little as three days or be sentenced to up to seven years in prison.

No UN Investigation or Condemnation. International troops opened fire on a civilian bus early Monday in a southern Afghan city, killing four people and wounding 18.

Turkey has Ended Moderate Pretence Game. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Israel is the "principal threat to peace" in the Middle East, marking a new low in rapidly deteriorating relations between Israel and Turkey.

Quote of the Week: “Dear G-d, this last year you took away my favorite singer MICHAEL JACKSON, My favorite actor PATRICK SWAYZE and my favorite actress FARRAH FAWCETT, Let me remind you that my favorite politician is MAHMOUD AHMEDINEJAD, Please don’t forget. Thank you very much.” - A Letter to G-d from Internet users.

Jordan has Never had Intention of Friendship. King Abdullah of Jordan has joined the Arab world’s saber-rattling against Israel and warned that the status of Jerusalem could blow up into another war. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, he also stated that Jordan was better off economically before it made peace with Israel in 1994: "The political trust is gone," he said. "There is no real economic relationship between Jordan and Israel. So economically we were better off in trade and in movement before my father signed the peace treaty." (Israel also has gained nothing from the fake peace treaty with Jordan - yet another, after Egypt, ‘moderate’ enemy.)

‘Friend’ Indeed. With the dividing lines between Hizbullah and the Lebanese Armed Forces not altogether clear, the United States has delivered weapons and ammunition to Lebanon. The U.S. embassy in Lebanon announced delivery of 1,000 M16A4 rifles, 10 missile launchers, 1,583 grenade launchers, and 538 sets of day/night binoculars and night-vision devices.

Freedom of Speech - Egypt Style. An Egyptian publisher, who recently released a book calling for political change, was arrested at his Cairo home during the weekend and copies of the book, his computer and manuscripts were confiscated. (This democracy is supported by the US tax payers, by almost 3 billion dollars a year, and no one is complaining!)

Iran: Sanctions are Ineffective. A spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry said Iran has been threatened with sanctions for 30 years (since the Islamic revolution) and they have always proven ineffective.

‘Humane’ Society which the West is Supporting. The vast majority of Gaza Arabs support Hamas' killing of collaborators, individuals accused of helping Israel in some way. According to a poll taken in recent months in Gaza, 85.6% of Gaza Arabs approved of an execution of a “collaborator”.

Quote of the Week: “Perhaps it is time for all self declared peace brokers to question the rationale of trying to achieve peace in the Middle East… For the past 80 years all kind of ‘peace envoys’ visited the Middle East… They always concluded that the Jews, and later Israel, were the ones that had to give up just a little more of their land. Has anyone ever bothered to ask: What are the Arabs asked to give up?” – Rani Levy, author of “Land for Peace”

Fears of Obama’s anti-Israel Attitude Realized.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has taken the heat for the current crisis that erupted when the approval of the fourth of seven stages for building new homes for Jews in the Ramat Shlomo neighborhood. Totally Jewish, it is located in a part of Jerusalem that was restored to Israel in the Six Day War when Jerusalem was reunited, but (unfortunately) not recognized as such by the United States (the country which claims to be a friend of Israel but still has not moved its embassy to Jerusalem!)

However, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton followed up with an unprecedented (but in line with her traditional anti-Israel rhetoric) and scathing public attack on the Prime Minister.

Republican Party leaders attacked the Obama administration with unusually harsh language, charging it with an "irresponsible” position against an ally. "In an effort to ingratiate our country with the Arab world, this administration has shown a troubling eagerness to undercut our allies and friends,” said the GOP’s only Jewish Republican Congressman, Eric Cantor of Virginia.

Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the leading Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, charged that the Obama government’s condemnations of "an indispensable ally and friend of the United States… undermine both our allies and the peace process, while encouraging the enemies of America and Israel alike. She noted that President Obama has taken "softer approaches" towards the Palestinian Authority, Syria and Iran.

Democrats also are uneasy over the crisis, which comes only eight months before Congressional elections. Polls have shown that President Obama’s political stature is sinking. (During the last US presidential election I and many level-headed supporters of Israel recognized, in spite of Obama’s publicity stunt visit to Israel, his tendency toward an anti-Israel policy and a soft pro-Muslim attitude. Unfortunately, all of it is surfacing now. Let as hope that the Obama rule is going to be a short-lived single-term fluke!)
