One Nation, Under Israel by
Andrew Hurley, 1999.
AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) is Israel's main lobby in the U.S. There are about 126 other political action committees (PAC), listed under deceptive names to hide their actual purpose, that can be mobilized at any time to rain money on any congressman ousting his disobedient opponent who dared criticize any aspect of U.S.-Israeli relationship. No wonder AIPAC is referred to on the Capitol Hill as "The Lobby". Many congressmen (now all ex's), such as the late Fullbright, Findley, and Percy, felt its power when daring to mildly criticize U.S.-Israeli relationship. Such criticism would also induce the wrath of the numerous pro-Israel columnists around the nation's major newspapers, such the New York Times' Safire, A.M. Rosenthal and the more subtle Thomas Friedman, the Washington Post's Charles Krauthammer and George Will, the Boston Globe's Jeff Jacoby, or the New Republic's Martin Peretz and Steven Emerson.
Those who are in line with AIPAC's will
--commonly seen prostituting themselves and their country for the
sake of Jewish vote-- such as Gephardt, Forbes, Helms, Gilman,
D'Amato, Moynihan, Harkin, Levin, Specter, Lieberman and Gingrich,
are generously rewarded. All Netanyahu (or any Israeli leader) has
to do is make up a catchy phrase, regardless of how false or
out-of-context it may be, e.g. "Arafat is not keeping his
promise of locking terrorists up" or that "the Palestinian
Authority has not changed their charter which calls for Israel's
destruction". Immediately following that the whole flock of
these pro-Israel congressmen are seen parroting in unison the same
statements over and over until a new is devised. It is sad to see
the many policy makers of today having their own political gains
in mind, rather than the good of their country and the world.

We, the Jewish people, control America
"Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it."
-- Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001.

what they want. The Israelis know what's going on all the
time. I got to the point where I wasn't writing anything
down. If the American people understood what grip those
people have on our government, they would rise up in arms.
Our citizens don't have any idea what goes
"... terrific control the Jews have
over the news media and the barrage the Jews have built up
on congressmen .... I am very much concerned over the fact
that the Jewish influence here is completely dominating the
scene and making it almost impossible to get congress to do

practically dictating to the congress through influential
