In this modern day and age, every candidate running for presidency must prove his/her allegiance to the U.S… oops, I should say.. the Israeli government and interests.
Far fetched statement? Hardly! AIPAC has trained U.S. Congress and Senate well. Capitol Hill, for example, is cynically called by some critics as: “Israeli occupied territories.” Israeli supporters and neocons would argue and claim that these people are simply anti-Semites. This is the “scariest term” that AIPAC and its thugs use to scare the American public with.
This fact has been more apparent in statements recently as the “race” to secure Jewish vote is underway.
And he chose a gathering of the pro-Israel lobby, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, last March to deliver his presidential candidacy’s first foreign policy speech. Obama and the Jews
And when a statement is made in favor of, say Palestinians, the candidate must quickly correct his views to maintain AIPAC’s “blessings.”
Early in his campaign, he handily killed an Israel-related controversy in its early stages. At a chat he had said that “no one has suffered more than the Palestinians.”
The statement was quickly changed to:
“What I said was, nobody has suffered more than the Palestinian people from the failure of the Palestinian leadership to recognize Israel, to renounce violence and to get serious about negotiating peace and security for the region,” Obama said during an MSNBC debate.
Obviously, Obama’s facts are clouded by his eagerness to please his Masters!
Huckabee and the Jews
As the only fully-functioning democracy in the Middle East, Israel occupies a unique position both geographically and geopolitically. Israel is an important partner in the spread of freedom and democracy throughout the Middle East and the world.
This statement and usual “I love Israel” rhetoric is as ignorant as the rest of them. I would bet not a single candidate is aware of what the Israelis and Jews in Israel are saying about their own government. Racist, Apartheid, undemocratic, and the list goes on. Read more.
WARNING: Could these Israelis and Jews be anti-Semites? You may stop laughing now, please.
But I wouldn’t back away from saying that AIPAC is very influential in our political process. That’s a little bit different than saying the Israeli government, but I think that the Israeli position is very influential.. Ron Paul.
And Ron Paul was accused of being anti-Semitic? Now, do we need to re-define the term anti-Semite? AIPAC‘s existence is built on supporting Israel’s interests. Period. AIPAC’s loyalty is obviously for a foreign country and state. This fact is solidified by it’s chosen logo.
For more than half a century, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee has worked to help make Israel more secure by ensuring that American support remains strong. From a small pro-Israel public affairs boutique in the 1950s, AIPAC has grown into a 100,000-member national grassroots movement described by The New York Times as “the most important organization affecting America’s relationship with Israel.”
In general, voting for a U.S. President among the Jewish voters is driven by Israel’s needs! Again, I question the loyalty and patriotism of an American who votes for the interest of a foreign and racist country like Israel.
Maybe it’s the weakness of the candidate field. Maybe it’s old habits dying hard, or unfamiliar threats flaring up. Whatever the cause, there seems to be a sharp increase in talk among Jews, some in the most unaccustomed circles, who plan to cast their votes this year on the basis of Israel’s security needs. Voting Our Hopes..
On the other hand, about 4 million Jews vote. If just 15% switch loyalties, that’s 600,000 votes — enough to tip Florida, Arizona, Missouri and a few other states. It’s happened before.
As for the rest, they’re no different. It’s the “seat” to Power that drives all. Such “race” is no different from third-world countries elections. The only difference is: our elections “appear” to be more democratic.
