I am reluctant to write two weeks in a row about Israel’s malignant influence over the United States but as the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is meeting in Washington for its annual Summit beginning next Sunday some commentary would seem desirable. AIPAC’s website claims that its “…mission is to strengthen, protect and promote the U.S.-Israel relationship in ways that enhance the security of Israel and the United States. Our staff and citizen activists educate decision makers about the bonds that unite the United States and Israel and how it is in America’s best interest to help ensure that Israel is safe, strong and secure.”

That is, of course, a self-serving bit of nonsense. U.S. national security would be best enhanced by telling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to take a hike and never come back. AIPAC is a political pressure group, not an educational foundation, which is purely a pretext exploited to secure it tax exemption. It uses every means, fair and foul, to influence and even intimidate the U.S. government and media to maintain the fiction that Israel is somehow America’s “best friend” and “closest ally” even though it is neither. Its objective is to maintain the flow of U.S. dollars from the U.S. Treasury while keeping the firewall of political protection in place to insulate Israeli politicians from the consequences of their own actions.

This year AIPAC, which has an annual budget of $70 million and more than 200 employees, is expecting 16,000 supporters and two thirds of Congress. It will be featuring a keynote speech by Hillary Clinton, which should be fascinating. As Hillary and her husband Bill already constitute a fully owned subsidiary of the Israel Lobby and New York financial services interests, which often amount to the same thing, her attendance might be regarded as de rigueur. And she has already pledged to invite Netanyahu to the White House during her first month in office while also promising to move the Israeli relationship to a “new level,” a concept that is both difficult to imagine and positively frightening in terms of what it might portend. Will she move the entire U.S. government to Jerusalem? Or only the Treasury Department?

Donald Trump will also be speaking at AIPAC, for the first time. Trump has rattled Israel’s friends in the U.S. by calling for an even handed role by Washington in Middle East peace negotiations and through his insistence that he does not need the money from Jewish mega-donors to run his campaign and “can’t be bought.” But he has also said “First of all, there’s nobody…that’s more pro-Israel than I am. OK. There’s nobody. I am pro-Israel. I was the Grand Marshall, not so long ago, of the Israeli Day Parade down 5th avenue. I’ve made massive contributions to Israel. I have a lot of — I have tremendous love for Israel. I happen to have a son-in-law and a daughter that are Jewish, OK? And two grandchildren that are Jewish.” So one should assume that he will talk fulsomely about his love of Israel but at the same time it has to be hoped that he will assert his independence when it comes to policy affecting the United States.

Netanyahu also regularly appears at AIPAC. Last year he used the platform provided to harangue the American public and the inside the beltway chattering class about the dangers posed by Iran while also exploiting the opportunity to do some serious fundraising in New York. The visits also frequently provide an opportunity to meet with and scold the President of the United States or to address Congress on how the U.S. should conduct its foreign policy. It is a given in Washington that Netanyahu will show up in the nation’s capital personally to kick some butt at least twice a year but it is also understood that Bibi will not fail to dish out some harsh criticism the rest of the time by way of the media, his own patented form of international extortion.

Nothing illustrates the unbridgeable abyss between the media/talking head vision of Israel promoted by the Israel Lobby and folks like Hillary and the real thing more than the recent embarrassments and indignities being delivered by the Netanyahu government, which AIPAC really represents. Benjamin Netanyahu is, to everyone’s surprise, not coming to AIPAC this year but will instead address the conference by video link. The visit was planned but canceled at the last moment and, per Netanyahu, the fault is that of the president of the United States who had reportedly said that he would not be available for a meeting due to the upcoming trip to Cuba.

The Obama Administration was genuinely puzzled, partly due to the fact that it first learned of the cancellation through a newspaper story rather than from the Israeli Embassy or Foreign Ministry. It was also astonished by the explanation given as it had indeed set up a presidential meeting at Netanyahu’s request in spite of a very tight schedule. The White House did not complain openly about the deliberate snub, but it was clear to everyone involved that Netanyahu was yet again sending a message to the Administration regarding who was in charge.

Netanyahu benefits from the fact that his tendency to ridicule critics makes many in the media reluctant to challenge his behavior, but when it became embarrassingly clear that he had been fibbing about why he was not coming to Washington he immediately resorted to Plan B, stating that he did not want to interfere in the presidential primaries currently underway. No one believed that argument either as Netanyahu has not hesitated to interfere in American politics in the past, notably when he made clear that he would prefer a Republican president in 2012 and appeared in ads in Florida endorsing Mitt Romney.

The White House meanwhile resorted to its own Plan B when confronted by a truculent Netanyahu. It first groveled a bit about how much it loves Israel and then expressed hope that Vice President Joe Biden, who was in the air on his way to Tel Aviv, would be able to calm the situation. Indeed, the original objective of the Biden trip turned out to be the real reason for the contretemps with Netanyahu. Netanyahu was miffed because the United States has hesitated to provide him with a no-strings-attached long term agreement to give Israel at least $5 billion dollars per year in military assistance, up from the current $3 billion.

To be fair to Netanyahu, the demand for more “assistance” was no secret. The Israelis had made it clear since they failed to stop the Iran nuclear deal that they would feel a whole lot better if Washington were to give them a lot more money. And it would have to be guaranteed cash, tied to a security package that would run for at least ten years.

Biden had been sent to help negotiate an agreement over the assistance, which had been stalled due in part to Israeli expectations that they might do better with a GOP Administration or Hillary if they wait a few months. Obama’s insistence that any deal would require the Israeli government to forego lobbying directly to congress for more cash also was a stumbling block. The President of the United States has thereby found himself in a situation engineered by Netanyahu in which he has to beg Israel to take more money with the only condition being that it not make trouble with the nation’s legislature. In return for the largesse, Israel would not be committed to do anything that would directly benefit the United States.

In the event, Biden’s role as a negotiating intermediary was unsuccessful and he wound up looking foolish so he too has decided to speak at AIPAC where he will undoubtedly say many unctuous things that no one will believe.

There are several things that can be done to address the wildly asymmetrical situation with Benjamin Netanyahu and AIPAC. First, it must be recognized that the United States and Israel are actually two separate countries with very little in the way of common interests. The notion that they have many mutual concerns is largely a myth. AIPAC, the principal purveyor of the myth, is an agent of Israel and should be compelled to register with the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938, which would require it to maintain transparency in terms of who funds it. It should also be stripped of its tax exemption as it is demonstrably not an educational foundation. Taking those two steps would enable the American public to understand just exactly what AIPAC represents.

Second, President Obama should cut off aid to Israel completely since it is uninterested in there being any quid pro quo for the billions that it receives. If Obama wants to be gracious, he can consider renewing the subsidy if and when Israel rolls back its illegal settlements in Jerusalem and on the Palestinian West Bank. If Israel is not interested in peace and not willing to reverse policies that many believe constitute war crimes then it will not receive any support of any kind from the United States.

The annual reappearance of AIPAC in Washington should remind everyone that there are those among us who regard any allegiance to the common interests that should bind together all Americans as secondary at best. In the case of Israel, billions in taxpayer money should not be regarded as a convenient mechanism to bribe a foreign state to behave. It is past time to cut the ties that bind to despicable rogues like Benjamin Netanyahu and to make clear to Americans politicians that dual loyalty to a state that has been nothing but trouble for the past twenty years will no longer be considered acceptable.

  2. It is a faint hope that anything can be done about undue Israeli influence. One might as well wish for the banksters to be reigned in, for good jobs for Americans to return, for Wall Street to stop buying politicians, for mass surveillance to cease, for troops not to be garrisoned around the globe, for American war profiteers not to proliferate arms throughout the world by taxpayer subsidy, for all the pre-emptive American wars to cease.

    Not to mention that every US taxpayers ‘loan’ that “that shitty little country” has received has never been paid back. The Israeli Occupied Congress curiously “forgave” all these huge debts.

    Let’s not mention the vast sums they receive from ‘Homeland Security to do much of the spying.

  6. My impression of Trump is that he is buddies with the supper mega wealthy NY and NE Jews.

    These Big Jews are liberals – not conservative “Israel can do no wrong Zionist Jews” on the order of Charles Krauthammer. These mega Big Jews want to see a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians.

    In Jew world, Jew mega money is on a par with Israel in importance. Mega US Jew money wants to assert a balance between itself and Israel.

    They want Trump to work for a peace treaty in order to keep their standing in the American scene. They do not want Netanyahu and Israel to screw up their happy all powerful situation in America.

  16. Trump despises the Israeli government and knows it is behind our disasters in the Middle East but sees no reason to add anti-Semite to the list of false charges against him (he has nothing against Jews as Jews). AIPAC is, in fact, an unregistered foreign agent. I hope Trump has the FBI raid its offices the day he takes power.

    As for Mr.Giraldi’s so-called “obsession” with Israel, allow me to point out that he, like me, is a former CIA officer. He is well aware of the damage that this shitty little country has done to America and is disgusted by it. To know the truth and to watch our elected representatives grovel and kiss the butts of these creeps turns your stomach.

    I might point out that Ron Unz, who runs this site, is Jewish, but he is a proud American Jew, not an Israeli or a dual loyalist.

    American Jews are NOT Israelis and Israelis are NOT Americans. I have no wish to see Israel harmed. On the contrary. Had the Arabs worked with them instead of engaging in a useless 70 year war we would all be better off. But I will not stand and watch a foreign country treat my country like a lavatory attendant.

  18. Yes Mr. Giraldi, the ‘AIPAC Circus’ is about to hit NY, and the top clowns would be Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump (both have family ties with Jewish Mafia).

    American ‘Kingmaker’ AIPAC has invited all presidential candidates to address its annual conference on US-Israel relationship on March 20-22. All of these Israel-Firsters attended the conference in 2008.

    Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton was the first one to accept the invitation followed by GOP frontrunner Donald Trump. Bernie Sander has not announced his decision but I’m sure he cannot afford to miss an invitation from his tribe.

    Max Blumenthal has authored a petition asking Bernie Sanders to reject AIPAC invitation to address the conference. Blumenthal has been accused of being a Zionist mole within Palestine Solidarity Movement. Blumenthal has accused both Gilad Atzmon and Alison Weir being anti-Palestinian. In 2012, Blumenthal resigned Lebanese Al-Akhbar news website over its pro-Assad policy.

    The rock-star Roger Waters, who endorsed Sanders last month, has also urged Sanders to boycott AIPAC conference.

    Robert Naiman, director Just Foreign Policy, has also sent a petition to Bernie Sanders urging him to address the AIPAC conference. “Bernie, please use your bully pulpit to tell AIPAC that Israel settlement are not Israel and that Israel should stop developing settlements on Palestinian (as if Israel is located on Polish or German land) and should end the blockade of Gaza,” Naiman said

  19. There are thousands of “open-minded Jews”, who have been labeled ‘Self-Hating, Israel-Threatening’ (S.H.I.T) Jews by the Organized Jewry for criticizing the Zionist regimes. Why? Because for AIPAC, ADL, AJC, etc. powerful lobby groups and almost the entire Jewish-controlled mainstream media – criticism of Israel of questioning the Holocaust stories – means ‘hatred towards Jews’.

    What these moron wouldn’t tell the public that the greatest so-called ‘antisemites’ happens to be among the Zionist Jewish leadership – from Theodor Herzl to Netanyahu.

    Yehezkel Kaufman in article, titled “The Ruin of Soul” collected quotes from some of the Zionist writers (Frishman, Lenni Brenner, Berdichevsky, AD. Gordon, Schawadron, Klatzkin, Pinsker, Israel Joshua Singer, Chaim Kaplan, etc.), which if repeated on air – would get you fired from CNN, BBC, CBS, etc.

    History of the Jews, by Heinrich Graetz

    Chapter I.
    Character of Polish Jews

    QUOTE: A love of twisting, distorting, ingenious quibbling, and a foregone antipathy to what did not lie within their field of vision, constituted the character of the Polish Jews. Pride in their knowledge of the Talmud and a spirit of dogmatism attached even to the best rabbis, and undermined their moral sense.

    The Polish Jews of course were extraordinarily pious, but even their piety rested on sophistry and boastfulness. Each wished to surpass the other in knowledge of what the Code prescribed for one case or another. Thus religion sank, not merely, as among Jews of other countries, to a mechanical, unintelligent ceremonial, but to a subtle art of interpretation. To know better was everything to them; but to act according to acknowledged principles of religious purity, and exemplify them in a moral life, occurred to but few.

    Integrity and right-mindedness they had lost as completely as simplicity and the sense of truth.

    The vulgar acquired the quibbling method of the schools, and employed it to outwit the less cunning. They found pleasure and a sort of triumphant delight in deception and cheating.

    Against members of their own race cunning could not well be employed, because they were sharp-witted; but the non-Jewish world with which they came into contact experienced to its disadvantage the superiority of the Talmudical spirit of the Polish Jews. The Polish sons of the Talmud paid little attention to the fact, that the Talmud and the great teachers of Judaism object even more strongly to taking advantage of members of a different faith than of those of their own race.
    The corruption of the Polish Jews was avenged upon them in a terrible way, and the result was, that the rest of the Jews in Europe were for a time infected with it. END QUOTE

  28. You should consider an option that Giraldi is obsessed with the well-being of his country of the USA. This is why he writes about the ziocons’ detrimental influence on the US politicians. You are welcome to refute the facts of the ziocons’ very active involvement into initiation the ongoing slaughter in the Middle East (what is the cost of the illegal Iraq war for the US – some $3 trillions?) as well as in the thievery of the US-taxpayers money for the benefits of the former Soviets and such in Israel (at least $3billions annually).

  29. “…the Jews have such a powerful, well organized and effective organization to support Israel.”
    True. There are a lot of Israel-firsters in the US that are sincerely devoted to Israel ahead of the US, even to the detriment to their country of residence (the US). Don’t you see the incongruence? By all means, the Israel-firsters should go to Israel instead of claiming the US citizenship. It is one thing to help personally to one’s country of origin, but it is very different story when a powerful ethnocentric organization is committed to treasonous activities against the country in which this organization resides.

  33. Sherman, you are perhaps too sensitive to the colloquial definitions.
    However, the main point of my posts was that Mr. Giraldi is an American patriot, which you found intolerable in a special case of his writing about the AIPAC’s unduly influence on the US politicians. The Lobby does not hold allegiance to a country where it resides, whether it is the US or UK; moreover, the true allegiance of the Lobby to Israel clashes with the interests of the countries where the Lobby has become the “well organized and effective organization to support Israel.” It is fine to admire and support the cultural traditions of one’s ancestral land (say, India, Romania, Israel, Palestine, Iran, Argentina…) but it is not fine to use a country of residence as a host to use it for the benefits of a foreign country.

  36. Your choice in the matter has been preempted, Chris Mallory, by Israeli Jews.

    That choice was made as far back as ~1895 when Theodor Herzl began to select the nations that would be tricked, blackmailed, bribed, or threatened into supporting and even financing the Jewish quest for a state of their own. http://jodenhaat.nl/DagboekenHerzl.pdf

    Did you know that in the 1920s and 1930s there was a Jewish civil war? Zionists like Henry Morgenthau thought that the USA should be the new “promised land” of the Jewish people.

    But Chaim Weizmann, who had just invested several years of his life to trick-bribe-blackmail the British into supporting and financing a Jewish state in the British Mandate Palestine, insisted that Palestine was the “promised land” of the Jewish people.
    (read about it here: There Is No Bridge Between Washington and Pinsk, American Hebrew & Jewish Messenger, Sept. 1921 )

    Their battle was not just rhetorical, it was about the money, honey: Weizmann thought the money that zionists who canvassed the US and solicited funds from Jews and others in US and throughout the world should commit that money to causes in Palestine.

    Morgenthau thought the funds should support Jewish causes in the USA.

    Morgenthau won by losing: from his position as Secretary of Treasury of USA, Morgenthau used US taxpayer money to support Jewish causes in USA such as Jewish migration and resettlement.

    Needless to say, the battle did not end with the end of the WWII, or of the 1948 declaration of a Jewish state in Palestine; nor with any of the myriad of events by which Israeli Jews have extracted taxpayer money and political support from the US people and their gov’mint; just yesterday Moshe Ya’alon appeared on the state of the US taxpayer-funded Wilson Center to discuss the “MOU” that he intends to gather in after his discussions with Ashton Carter.

    https://www.wilsoncenter.org/event/directors-forum-conversation-he-moshe-yaalon-minister-defense-the-state-israel

    Jews dominate the hierarchy at the Wilson Center, one more instance of how the Morgenthau plan prevails in USA today.

    The Israeli defense minister was in Washington to ensure the continuation of the Weizmann plan -support for Jews in Israel.
    Ya’alon and his interviewer/straight man Aaron David Miller laid out the reasons why Israel needs not just the same amount of money but more money from the USA, and needs an MOU NOW, to guarantee the flow of funds over the next ten years (against a possible Trump presidency??) — the one-word reason is Iran: Iran is gaining confidence (it was intriguing the number of times Ya’alon used the word “confidence” when describing Iran; it brought to mind statements David Wurmser made in 2007 at an Israel Project meeting in Annapolis, when Bush made meaningless motions to solve the I/P conflict. Wurmser complained that “Iran is telling Muslims throughout the entire region to reclaim their dignity; Iran is self-confident and spreading that throughout the Muslim world.” (loose paraphrase) http://www.c-span.org/video/?202444-1/annapolis-middle-east-summit

    In other words, the 1920s Jewish civil war was resolved in a most amicable fashion: both sides won: Jews became dominant players in USA and Jews took possession of Palestine, with US taxpayer support.

    U S Taxpayers, and a good chunk of the rest of the world, lost.

    As for your choice in the matter, Chris Mallory: Sit down and Shut up.
    That’s the role that the Chosen have chosen for you.

  40. All the Israel lovers here will explain any minute now why sending tens of billions of USD to Israel is beneficial to US taxpayers…

    We won’t do that because it is not true that we are sending “tens of billions” of aid to Israel.

    We are sending 3 billion, but every penny of it comes back to the US because it has to be spent on American manufactured equipment. But hey, let’s not let facts get in the way of a rant.

  44. Wrong biz. Tens of billions understates it. It totals more than $120 billion.

    http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/US-Israel/U.S._Assistance_to_Israel1.html

    It is 3 billion plus EVERY YEAR and that number does not include additional co-production schemes that benefit the Israeli armaments industry, which competes with our own, or special funds voted by congress like the current $280 million to enable Israel to develop iron dome, which it will then try to sell to other countries like India. And also “every penny” is completely wrong. The Israelis claim that they spend 75% of the money on US weapons, which may or may not be correct. The US provides more than 20% of Israel’s total defense budget and we get squat in return but I guess you think it is a good investment for the US taxpayer.

  45. The invention of the state of Israel was a disaster for American interests in the middle east. Without its slavish support for it, the US could probably live peacefully with the Arab world. Israel is to the US what Serbia was to Tsarist Russia. That sure worked out well for the Romanovs. Israel needs the USA but I can’t think of one single thing that America needs Israel for. Just goes to show you how incredibly powerful and influential the Jewish lobby in the USA is. But in the very long run, Israel is NOT sustainable demographically.

  48. Looks like a puppet visiting its master.

    The candidate who is promising most to this influential group will get the Job.

    In a Plutocracy you need money as “hardware” (= “decision-finder”) and power over the media as “software” (= “multiplication of opinion” and power over the brains) .

    AIPAC doesn’t care who will become President “under them”.
    It wouldn’t wonder me when they make jokes about their applicant on stage.

    Politicians look like as they have become an audience at the King.Look at their forced smile and they know – if they become the green light from the King then the chance to become the Job is very high – Democracy Made in USA.

    Every Politician knows it is better for his career to be “silent”, not too critical and just to say “Yes” to all the “wishes” (= orders).

    The only problem for them would be a rich candidate (= “independent”).
    But in the end rich ones make politics for rich ones.

    It can only be changed with a new election-system, a 5% hurdle and plebiscite in every imortant case – just like in Switzerland, the only Country with a real Democracy.
    But this is real Science Fiction.

  50. Holocaust deniers?

    I don’t deny that Jews were expelled from several European nations 108 times in the past for being too possessive and greedy. However, no Zionist moron has yet proved that Nazis did kill SIX MILLIONs JEWS. In fact, the six rabbi who attended Tehran’s Holocaust Conference in December 2006 had admitted that Nazis couldn’t have killed more than one million Jews.

    David Cole, Zionist Jew author of book, ‘Republican Party Animal’ claims that Holocaust is based on “fake, forgery and fraud”. TAKI’s Magazine on February 17, 2015, he wrote: “I attempt to correct the historical record regarding the Holocaust, primarily by sniffing out and exposing fake artifacts and fraudulent or improperly-used documents.”

    Of course, it’ll never happen. There’s “never been heard a discouraging word” about the Zionist entity in our bought-and-paid-for press.

    Its not so much a problems with arabs as it its a problem with muslims. No one , including the usa or israel has any problems with christians arabs . The only ones with problems with christian arabs , is of course , muslims , who are enslaving them , mass raping them and committing genocide against them . In short, muslim arabs have done far worse to christian arabs than they have done to Israel . Another case of muslim conflict that has nothing to do with Israel and everything to do with Muslim expansionism .

    America is hardly alone in having problems with muslims , and it has nothing to do with Israel . India has problems with muslims but it has nothing to do with Israel , Russia has problems with muslims and it has nothing to do with israel , in fact russia has killed half a million of them in Chechnya as well as currently fighting a war in Syria against muslims , Myanmar has problems with muslims , no israel connection , France , Sweden , Germany , UK ,Norway all have problems with muslims ,no israel connection , Philippines has a problem with muslims , no israel connection , Nigeria has problems with muslims and no israel connection , and every single muslim state is at war with itself and its citizens with no hint of an israel connection ..

Served in Soviet military as was the case for any young man in those days . He served in the republics of Georgia , Armenia , Turkmenistan , Kazakhstan .Had some great stories from the old days and he can make shashlik on the grill like its no ones business . He was hanging out at my house and grilling up shashliki on my driveway on halloween a few years ago and a group of black trick or treaters walked up to my house to get some candy and when they passed us they said ” Fuck the candy , give us some of that bbq mang” !!!

    Anyway he always referred to and said everyone in Azerbaijan referred to Iran as South Azerbaijan . Most people don’t realize that Iran is 48% Azeri ethnic and only 48% Persian , the remaining % arabs and other minorities . Azerbaijan feels Iran is occupying their land .

    Azeris are cool and so are Armenians . But they do both hate each other .

Perhaps they have something to do with the Golan Heights and other geographical ideas of Yinon Plan?

    “America is hardly alone in having problems with muslims, and it has nothing to do with Israel…”
    Here is an excellent overview of the long history of the US anti-democratic policies towards Arab world: http://www.politico.eu/article/why-the-arabs-dont-want-us-in-syria-mideast-conflict-oil-intervention/
    “Even as America contemplates yet another violent Mideast intervention, most Americans are unaware of the many ways that “blowback” from previous CIA blunders has helped craft the current crisis. The reverberations from decades of CIA shenanigans continue to echo across the Mideast today in national capitals and from mosques to madras schools over the wrecked landscape of democracy and moderate Islam that the CIA helped obliterate.”
    This overview by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. adds both clarity and honesty to a discussion about the ongoing slaughter in the Middle East. And it is impossible to deny the involvement of the Lobby (PNAC, AIPAC) in making the decisions about the illegal wars in Iraq and Syria.

    Some interesting tidbits . Lets read the tea leaves !!!!!!

    King Abdullah of Jordan is spending extravagant sums of money to rule his country from abroad while using intimidation to bully his opponents into silence, according to an interview published Sunday with a former Jordanian politician.

    Although Shubeilat has been a bugbear to two successive regimes in Jordan over the years, he says that without the king, Jordan would succumb to civil war.

    King Abdullah “seems to rule the country by remote control, as he is always away from the country,” the former politician, Laith Shubeilat, told Middle East Eye, adding that the King spends about JD 2 million (NIS 11m.) a day to do so.

    “A private plane for him, a private plane for her [Queen Rania]. Maybe planes for the kids, [too],” said Shubeilat.

    Glad you have an Azerbaijani friend.
    I got nothing against individual Azerbaijanis, Turks, or anybody else.
    My beef is with the States and the leaders of those states.

    As to {Iran is 48% Azeri ethnic…}: you have no idea what you are talking about.

    {Azerbaijan feels Iran is occupying their land .}
    The fake state of ‘Azerbaijan’ was cooked up in 1918.
    Persia/Iran has been in existence for 1,000s of years.
    Nomadic Turkic tribes invaded the region around 1,000AD.
    Northern Iranians speak Turkish, as a result of being dominated at the time by Turk invaders.
    But they are ethic Iranians/Persians.

    The territory of the fake state ‘Azerbaijan’ was a province of Iran/Persia, until British Imperialists, Genocidal Turkey, and Bolsheviks collaborated in creating the fake state in order to steal the land from Iran/Persia.
    The fake name ‘Azerbaijan’ was stolen from the Northern provinces of Iran named ‘Azarbaijan’ (with an ‘a’), so that in the future invadonomad Turks could claim it as “Turkish lands”: wherever the nomads squat becomes alleged “Turkish lands”.
    Just like invadonomad Turks claiming occupied Northern Cyprus as, quote, “Turkish”.

    Glad you asked.

  79. Hmmm

    It takes a massive leap beyond rational thought to believe that anyone supporting an Apartheid State committing war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide like Israel which refuses to sign the nuclear non proliferation treaty and secretly maintains one of the largest stock piles of OFFENSIVE nuclear, biological and chemical weapons stock piles in the world and defies America and American interests at every turn to be of sound mind. Israel a country that has murdered American soldiers and civilians and has clear links to 9-11. A country which routinely gets caught spying on America. A country which in fact on more than one occasion has been caught red handed selling those stolen military secrets to America’s enemies. A country which openly attempts to directly influence not just US foreign policy but our domestic politics as well. Israel, a country which has more UN sanctions and is in violation of more UN sanctions than most of the rest of the world combined. In short, Israel is a direct and immediate threat to US National Security.

    On the other hand, Iran is a long time signatory of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Iran routinely allows international inspectors into the country to verify compliance. Inspector which have NEVER found any evidence of a nuclear weapons program. Israel not only refuses to allow any weapons inspectors into the country, Israel routinely refuses to allow international relief organizations like the Red Cross into the country. Iran is also a country which lives in peace with its neighbors. Unlike Israel, which continue to attack virtually all of its neighbors as it continues to steal land from them.

    Supporting Israel in light of its actions requires the complete suspension of rational thought and total disregard for the facts at a hand. Unless of course you are a radical hard line militant zionist.

    You forgot to mention one important distinction. While it’s true there are indeed references in the OT (not in the Pentateuch, however), about the Jews returning to their homeland, these references make it clear it is the mashiach who will lead them there:

    The mashiach will bring about the political and spiritual redemption of the Jewish people by bringing us back to Israel and restoring Jerusalem (Isaiah 11:11-12; Jeremiah 23:8; 30:3; Hosea 3:4-5).

    http://www.jewfaq.org/m/mashiach.htm

    The Zionists have strayed very far indeed from the holy scriptures of Judaism – see Max Blumenthal’s Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel, for further evidence.

  85. Philip Giraldi has been critical of America’s blind support for the Zionist entity that creates world hatred toward United States – but he had been very careful in mentioning Israel hands in America’s wars against Muslim countries. For example on October 4, 2012, he wrote at ‘The Council for the National Interest’:

    “The Israeli government is a rogue regime by most international standards, engaging as it does, in torture, arbitrary imprisonment, and continued occupation of territories seized by it military. Worse still, it has successfully manipulated my country, the United States, and has done terrible damage both to our political system and to the American people, a crime that I just cannot forgive, condone, or explain away.”

  86. If Israel is our ally and best friend, then arsenic is a vitamin. We, as a nation, have succumbed to Judeo-Christian myth. The two are diametrically opposed. Moreso, Israel is largely an atheistic nation that has virtually no moral high ground. It is obvious that Israel cannot protect our military interests in the ME. So, of what value are they? What do we get in return for our three billion dollars? Absolutely nothing but headaches. Further, Israel has become a mortal threat to this country by attempting to place its agent into the WH and acquire control of our nuclear arsenal. We should cut all ties with Israel, declare the neocons foreign agents and send them packing. Maybe they would serve Israel better by being in Israel, not Washington DC.

  89. Wah, wah, wah……….you goyim are all inadequate, frustrated losers, etc……….wah, wah, wah.

    I never said all goyim are inadequate losers . Hate to burst your bubble, but the alt right / white nationalist group makes up a vanishingly small segment of goyim . Maybe you should reduce your oxycontin intake and you can comprehend better .

    People are getting wise to your bullshit.

    Thats why you can only hear such lies in the darkest corners of obscure websites . Why do we never hear such things in real life ?? Every time an alt right white nationalist is shown on TV they are either so frail form the extended atrophy of constantly posting racist and paranoid diatribes online all day that they need to be helped by black cops, lest they pass out from sunlight and other things they are not used to . Or you can see guys leaving a trump rally , barely able to walk , in the most deplorable physical condition , obviously ravaged by opiate use , screaming into a camera about Aushwitz. I thought it might have been one of the commenters here when I saw that one !!!!

  92. It takes a massive leap beyond rational thought to believe that anyone supporting an Apartheid State committing war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide

    I agree , the dozen or more Islamic Apartheid states are deplorable . For example the Islamic republic of Sudan , killed over a million black Christians in South Sudan which only stopped when the Christians formed South Sudan in 2011. In addition The Islamic republic of Sudan used rape as a weapon to arabize the the black Christian population . Their enforcers were the janjaweed militia . Since then they have focused on Genocide in Darfur , killing half a million people .

    You could point to the Islamist regime in Indonesia which does not allow churches to be built on streets named after a Muslim . No restrictions whatsoever on where a mosque could be built . In addition they invaded and occupied Christian Papua in 1963 . Since then they have committed genocide and killed half a million Papuans . In addition , raising the Papua flag gets a 20 year prison sentence . Like Omar Bashir in Sudan , Indonesia uses mass rape as a tool of suppression .

    There are 15 Islamic countries that hand out the death penalty for converting from Islam to Christianity , yet there is no penalty whatsoever for converting from Christianity to Islam. Apartheid anyone ??

    There are 15 Islamic countries that make homosexuality a crime punishable by the death penalty. Iran has executed 700 people for the crime of homosexuality since 1980 .

  94. …but I can’t think of one single thing that America needs Israel for.

    I can. Israel serves as a convenient conduit through which advanced weaponry, stolen by Jews, can be sold to “hostile nations” like China, thus creating the urgent need for even more sophisticated weaponry to be rushed to development by a Zionist dominated USMIC. The scam has worked like a charm for 60+ years, yet the American public remain as clueless as they’ve always been, and, baring a miracle, are apt to remain.
    Oh! And, what happens to the money paid for stolen weapons? Well, Israel keeps that as compensation for services rendered. So now you know why Israel is our “best and only friend” in the middle east.

  99. Excellent article Mr. Giraldi, and I know that you were being professionally diplomatic in your assessment, but I don’t need to be. Israel is an abscessed tooth that has infected the US to the point of death, and should be extracted now. It must be forced, no matter the consequences, to acknowledge it’s engineering of the WTC, USS Liberty and other direct attacks upon America. Then Israel’s nuclear arsenal (now much more than 400 nuclear weapons) must be eliminated and a real peace agreement satisfactory to all sides must be imposed on Israel. If these are not achieved, then the world is in for a very long and horrible epoch of war, torture, humiliation and degradation and America will not be spared.

  100. You “jews” have just one problem. I’m no bible believer, but the ones who claim to be, say that the jewish converts from eastern Europe (Poland mostly) who’re presently occupying Palestine are NOT biblical jews. Although I normally dismiss religious talk and ideology for the foolishness it is, they are obviously right on this particular subject. Anyone with half sense knows that Jews (the biblical kind) are not born with fair complections, blond hair and blue eyes. Like several other Semitic groups hailing form N. Africa and the Levant, they’re born with dark skin, dark kinky hair and brown eyes. This has nothing to do with racism. It’s just a simple observation and statement of fact.

  103. Marwan, I was hoping that you could answer a question for me since you seem to be a genuinely religious Zionist and I, as Carroll expressed, am not a religious person in the least.

    I thought that the Jewish religion states in the Torah that a Messiah would lead the Jews back to Israel to form a state, so are you claiming that either David Ben Gurion, Theodor Herzl, or Baron Rothschild is your Messiah?

    Serious question.

  107. I couldnt agree with you more, Anon .. the analogy you just gave is a gem .. Israel to the US as Serbia was to Tsarist Russia. :-) That certainly didn’t work out for the Romanovs.
    Indeed, the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 was a disaster for US interests in the Mideast, and that hasn’t changed. Had the Zionist Entity not been established, there would have been peace in the region, and the US would have been billions (if not, trillions) of dollars wealthier than it is now.
    And, do the Zionists care? Of course not .. they care only for themselves and their tiny criminal entity, and everyone else are merely cattle to be used and abused.

  113. I thought that the Jewish religion states in the Torah that a Messiah would lead the Jews back to Israel to form a state, so are you claiming that either David Ben Gurion, Theodor Herzl, or Baron Rothschild is your Messiah?

    The jewish groups that believe the messiah must return before returning to Israel are a vanishingly small minority of the Jewish people . They consist of Satmar sect and Neturei Karta sect , less than 1% of the Jewish population . These are the guys that went to Iran and French Kissed Ahmadinejad. Something else that these 2 sects also believe is that Jews must present themselves to be slaves of the Goyim . Now that might please you even more than the belief that Jews don’t belong in Israel . Nevertheless these 2 sects both live in Israel and receive generous welfare benefits for their large families . They believe each man should have 10 + children .
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8rBCT_T6Kg

    Incidentally the Koran teaches that Israel belongs to Jews as well :

    “To Moses We [Allah] gave nine clear signs. Ask the Israelites how he [Moses] first appeared amongst them. Pharoah said to him: ‘Moses, I can see that you are bewitched.’ ‘You know full well,’ he [Moses] replied, ‘that none but the Lord of the heavens and the earth has revealed these visible signs. Pharoah, you are doomed.’”

    “Pharoah sought to scare them [the Israelites] out of the land [of Israel]: but We [Allah] drowned him [Pharoah] together with all who were with him. Then We [Allah] said to the Israelites: ‘Dwell in this land [the Land of Israel]. When the promise of the hereafter [End of Days] comes to be fulfilled, We [Allah] shall assemble you [the Israelites] all together [in the Land of Israel].”

    “We [Allah] have revealed the Qur’an with the truth, and with the truth it has come down. We have sent you [Muhammed] forth only to proclaim good news and to give warning.”

    [Qur'an, "Night Journey," chapter 17:100-104]

    “And [remember] when Moses said to his people: ‘O my people, call in remembrance the favour of God unto you, when he produced prophets among you, made you kings, and gave to you what He had not given to any other among the peoples. O my people, enter the Holy Land which God has assigned unto you, and turn not back ignominiously, for then will ye be overthrown, to your own ruin.’” [Qur'an 5:20-21]

    “And thereafter We [Allah] said to the Children of Israel: ‘Dwell securely in the Promised Land. And when the last warning will come to pass, we will gather you together in a mingled crowd.’” [Qur'an 17:104]

  116. Thank you, marwan, for sharing the informative Qur’an quotes, but if we could get back to the topic at hand which is my question to you of what the Torah(not the Qur’an) says about a Jewish Messiah and the formation of a State of Israel.

    So are you saying that you don’t believe that the Torah defines the role of the Messiah as being to lead the Jewish People back to Israel to create a state?

    From geokat’s earlier post:
    The mashiach will bring about the political and spiritual redemption of the Jewish people by bringing us back to Israel and restoring Jerusalem (Isaiah 11:11-12; Jeremiah 23:8; 30:3; Hosea 3:4-5).

    And if so, then what IS the role of the Jewish Messiah in your opinion and what quotes from the Torah lead you to believe that he doesn’t need to return before the restoration of Israel as a state? Or do you not believe in a Jewish Messiah at all?

  119. Im glad that you enjoyed the Koran quotes regarding Israel belonging to Jews . You can google the many bible quotes from the old testament concerning the lord giving the land of Israel to the Jewish people for yourself , but Ill give you a few . :

    “For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it. ¶ And these [are] the words that the LORD spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah.” Jeremiah 30: 3,4

    “After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land [that is] brought back from the sword, [and is] gathered out of many people, against the mountains of
    Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall
    dwell safely all of them.” Ezekiel 38:8

    On that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram and said, “To your descendants I give this land, from the Wadi[a] of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates—genesis 15 : 18

  123. Facts dont get in the way of the Rants because FACTS are provided by the self assured ever cautious eagle eyed wide awake journalists .Rants are the knowledge provided by the “Fair and Balance” media in the Situation Room at PBS Hours embraced in gusto by MSNBC,BBC and by the print media . The Standard rants are delivered Weekly to the White House before morning briefings and aired in the Mega Church before God speaks the value of the loyalty to Israel to the congregation .

    This explains your confidence in your numbers and narratives .

    BTW -it’s not that the reporters are not aware of what we call conflict of interests , ideological bend or the necessity of the views from the opposite side. They simply apply the standards when it suits them .

    Here is O Reily


    Bill O’Reilly told Univision anchor Jorge Ramos that the Spanish-speaking network can’t be unbiased in its coverage of Donald Trump for doing just that.

    “If you, the top guy, has demonized [Trump] as a racist, how can you possibly cover him?” the Fox News host asked on Wednesday night’s “O’Reilly Factor.”

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-jorge-ramos_us_56ea1fcbe4b0860f99db9705

    FOX and Reily should apply the same principle and open up the discussion on Israel-Middle East issues by bringing Palestinian -American, Lebanese-Americans, Hamas representative , Hizbullah ideologues . White House,Pentagon,Treasury,and State Department should get the views from sources that doesn’t have to be vetted by Israel and from sources not limited to Weekly Standard ,WSJ or Jerusalem Post

  125. Azeri Turks are 15 million out of Iran’s total population of 80 million. However, there are more Azeris in Iran the Azerbaijan (10 million) – a former Soviet colony.

    The vast majority of Azeris, both Iranian and Azerbaijanis are Shi’ite Muslims. Azeri in Iran are well represented at all levels of political, military, and intellectual hierarchies, as well as the religious hierarchy.

    The oldest inhabitants of Azerbaijan were of Persian stock. Islam was introduced to the area by the Arabs during the 7th century. In the 11th century, Turkish nomads overran the area. In early 16th century, Azerbaijan was the Turk Safvid dynasty. It was the Safvid rulers who introduced Shai’ism into Persian society. In the 17th century, the Turks were expelled by King Nadir Shah. In the 18th century, Russian hordes invaded the area. Under the Treaty of Turkmenachai of 1828 CE, Azerbaijan was divided between Iran (southern part) and Russia (northern part). During the late half of 19th century, oil was discovered in Azerbaijan and by 1900, the region had become one of world’s leading oil producer. The country was occupied by Ottomans during WW I. Azerbaijan was occupied by Russian Army in 1920 and a Republic of Azerbaijan under communist-rule was established. In 1945 Russia set-up a short-lived Kurdish Republic in western Azerbaijan, but Iranian forces regained the area in 1946-47.

    Since 1979 Islamic Revolution, the old communist regime has become the US and Israel ally against Iran.

  127. An even better solution would be to dismantle the existing (since 1865) unit called The United States (a singular term), and revert back to that of The United States (a plural term) which, as the Founded Fathers intended, consisted of sovereign, independent States, loosely allied and connected together under Articles Of Confederation. Which, if I understand Switzerland’s form of government describes, in a general way, the political structure existing in that most fortunate country. Where political decisions affecting Switzerland and Swiss citizens are made with input from several quasi-independent states, each having equal representation with little or no coercion used by an all-powerful central authority, like that the one in Washington DC, which in 1865 was imposed on the American people by bullets and at the point of bayonets. With Federal troops occupying every statehouse in every formerly sovereign Southern state.

    I subscribe to the opinion of H. L. Mencken, one of America’s most fearless thinkers and editors, when (concerning the War To Prevent Southern Independence, often referred to by Southerners as The War of Northern Aggression) stated ; “The American people, both North and South, entered the war as sovereign citizens of sovereign States, but they left the war as subjects of a central government, and what they lost, they have never got back.”
    This may not be the exact quote (which, I don’t think is allowed to exist on the web, for obvious reasons) but it is very close.

    “Thats why you can only hear such lies in the darkest corners of obscure websites.”

    What lies? That Jews make up 33% of the Supreme Court (going on 44%)? 10% of the Senate? A vastly over-represented fraction of media, law, and finance. How exactly are those lies? They are rather easily demonstrable truths.

    “Why do we never hear such things in real life??”

    You mean on TV? Right…………that is real life. And why would the media have an interest in suppressing the alt-right view or anything sympathetic to it? Gee, you got me.

    “Every time an alt right white nationalist is shown on TV they are either so frail form the extended atrophy…………..”

  130. I find your avoidance of what you believe the role of the Jewish Messiah to be, interesting. You say that only 1% of the population of Israel believes that a Messiah must come before returning to Israel, but in the article which I’ve posted below from Yeshiva University it says that Ben Gurion definitely believed and Theodor Herzl, HIMSELF, may have believed that Herzl was the Messiah. So it seems that even the founders of modern day Israel believed that a Messiah must return first.

    How do you reconcile this belief of the founders and the verses in the Torah which directly state that a Messiah must return first with your beliefs that it’s not needed? Again, I’m not religious but I find this contradiction and schism in beliefs of Jewish Groups, or I should say lack in belief as time goes on, to be interesting.

    Isaiah 11:1-12
    A royal scepter will emerge from the stock of Jesse, and a sapling will sprout from his roots. The spirit of G-d will rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and power, the spirit of knowledge and fear of G-d… And it shall come to pass on that day, that the L-rd will once again acquire the rest of His people…and He will gather the dispersed of Israel, and the scattered of Judah He will gather from the four corners of the earth.

    Ezekiel 37:21-24
    So says the L-rd G-d, behold I will take the Children of Israel from among the nations where they have gone, and I will gather them from all sides, and I will bring them to their land…and My servant David will be king over them, one shepherd will be for all of them.

    How can one suggest that an assimilated, non-observant Jew like him could possibly fill the role of the Jewish Messiah, a character who usually elicits images of an old rebbe, a great talmid hakham, or a prophet? In contrast to such images, research shows that Herzl probably decorated a Christmas tree every year in his home, never circumcised his only son, urged his children to recite Christian prayers at night, and even offered the Roman ruler to convert all Jews to Christianity in exchange for an end to anti-Semitism.[i] Could this really have been the Messiah that Jews have dreamed of for centuries?

    At the same time, if we take a look at the time period in which Herzl lived, it is clear that a great number of Jews worldwide, having long suffered under the terrible conditions of the ghetto, viewed him as the Messiah, especially after the 1903 pogrom in Kishinev, Moldova, which claimed the lives of many Jews.[ii] For instance, when Herzl visited Vienna in 1903, people called out to him in the streets as “the King of the Jews,” and the police had to intervene in order to prevent public disorder caused by the excited crowds.[iii] Similarly, in America, Rabbi N. Benjamin, on behalf of a group of cantors, wrote in a letter to Herzl: “You are the divine emissary to whom was given the mission of once again raising up Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, as the prophets promised.”[iv] When Herzl traveled to the Israeli city of Rehovot, two leaders of Sefaradi groups fell on their knees before him, blessed him, and bowed while reciting: “This is what you should do to the Mashiah ben Yosef.”[v] Lastly, when Herzl stood before the Jewish community in Sofia, Bulgaria, he was trying to figure out how to face the congregation without turning his back on the Aron Kodesh (Holy Ark). One community member called out: “It’s all right for you to turn your back on the Ark; you are holier than the Torah.”[vi]

    Specifically after the First Zionist Congress, many Jews who had previously negated Herzl’s messianic qualities began to recognize his significance. For others who had believed in him all along, the First Zionist Congress was a crucial turning point that strongly solidified their faith in Herzl as the Messiah. The sentiment was verbalized by David Ben-Gurion, who later reminisced that when he was 10 years old, around the time of the First Zionist Congress, “a rumor spread that the Messiah had arrived – a tall, handsome man – a ‘doctor,’ no less – Dr. Herzl.”[vii] Similarly, Mordechai Ben-Ami, a Zionist journalist, reported from the Congress: “It seemed as if the great dream cherished by our people for two thousand years had come true at last, and Messiah, the son of David, was standing before us.”[viii]

    Although Herzl never stood on a platform and declared himself to be the Messiah, he was well aware that some, including the Chief Rabbi in Sofia, thought of him as such,[ix] that many people had positively compared him to other messianic figures like Shabbetai Tsevi, and that many Jewish communities believed that he would bring about the final redemption. In an effort to avoid as much as possible being labeled as the Messiah, Herzl took precautions not to ride on a donkey or a white horse while he was in Israel.[x] Yet, over time, Herzl began to wonder if the rumors about him were in fact true and he grappled with his possible messianic identity. In one cryptic line, he writes: “Our people believe that I am the Messiah,” but “I myself do not know this, for I am no theologian.”[xi] Moreover, a few months before his death, Herzl reported in his diary[xii] that when he was twelve years old, he would dream about the Messiah at night. In one of his dreams, he recalled that the Messiah carried him on his shoulders and when they passed a cloud of Moses, the Messiah said: “This is the child that you prayed for.” The Messiah and Moses then turned to Herzl and commanded him to tell the Jews: “Soon I will come and show my greatness and wonders to the whole nation and the entire world.” This dream suggests that Herzl possibly viewed himself as the messenger of the Messiah.

  134. Come on, marwan. You’re being disingenuous. Your passages do NOT say that the Messiah is not needed. You’re trying to say that they say it by omittance. They do not address whether or not a Messiah must come beforehand, but there are passages which directly DO address this. Your logic of omittance would be fine if there weren’t passages saying the contrary.

    Would you agree that there are passages which SPECIFICALLY state that it’s needed and that the founders and the majority of Jewish population at the time of it’s modern day founding believed it to be needed?

  137. Also please know, marwan, that I am just as against anti-Semitism as you are. But criticism of Israel is NOT anti-Semitism. Israel is a political State. Israel is not a religion.

    I am not an advocate for ANY religion because I believe in Spirituality as opposed to Religion, but I most certainly am NOT against Jewish people for being Jewish. I am against the undue influence that the POLITICAL state of Israel holds in our government through groups such as AIPAC that should be registered under FARA. I am against MY tax dollars being used to support an Apartheid State. I am against MY family, friends, and loved ones in the military being sent to die and be maimed in wars that are not for America’s safety, but for Israel’s.

    A LOT of the people on this website feel the exact same way. Of course there ARE some anti-Semitic idiots on here as well because, as it is with life, idiots are everywhere, but you do a GREAT disservice to your cause by throwing the false accusation at people as I’ve seen you do on other posts and as you did with me with your false claim that I would be happy if Jewish People were slaves to Goyim. Not only is it utter nonsense, it is extremely insulting.

    You are trying to smear people as being White Nationalist anti-Semites with absolutely no basis in fact. By all means if someone is being anti-Semitic against the Jewish religion then call them out on it. But with your current tactics, unless your aim is to make the word, anti-Semitic, have no meaning… you are failing utterly.

    If you keep on crying wolf, who’s gonna believe you when the REAL wolves come.

  139. Giraldi has in his post provided many useful pieces of information about the AIPAC 2016, which would otherwise be unavailable in the context of this conference.
    Let us be grateful for that.

  140. Top priority should be that the power belongs to the people and not a hostage of the Billionaires,Banks, Investment-Houses,Leagues,Councils,NGO’s,Mainstream-Media,etc.

    Power belongs into hands of elected ones.Influence of money should be controlled.

    With Seperation it would be the same system as it is right now.
    Worst example is Germany before 1871.Before this year there were several dozens of states with different laws.Even the clock has to be changed because of different time-zones .
    France and Great Britain were happy about such a weak “Germany” – seperate and rule.

    France for example did invade Germany about 30 times because of its weakness.
    Bismarck did end this dirty game of France and Britain’s Balance of Power.

    Germany with its unification and the 2nd German Reich from 1871 did rise up quickly and was a danger for the Colonial Superpowers France and Britain. Both Powers did found the Entente Cordiale in 1904 with the aim to reduce the rising star Germany.Even to declare German goods with “Made in Germany” didn’t bring the result and it became a symbol of quality.

    Just want to show you that seperation is not the right way.You need a strong State.

    People in the US should have more possibilities than to chose between Republican Plutocrats and Democratic Plutocrats.When I remember right simply every US-Politician is a Millionaire, most are Multi-Millionaire.The voting system has to be changed.Plebiscite in every important case.Federalisation of Institiutions and not concentration in New York.

    Politicians should realize that they are elected and employed from the People and they have to serve their Country.
    Influence of Money has to be reduced.Buying Democracy is corruption and not Politics.
    Everybody from the bottom till the top is a small and equal part of a giant organism.

  142. No, you strongly implied it.

    No I did not imply anything at all , you can take my words at face value and stop trying to read my mind LoL .

    An example of what I was talking about: the insinuation that anyone who questions your narrative must be a loser, a pervert, an oxy-addict, an anime-fetishist, etc. It’s trite and hackey. Don’t you guys have anything new?

    I never said everyone was a loser , also I never mentioned anything sexual , such as being a pervert or an anime fetishist . Those thoughts originated in your mind . Maybe you should examine why those images randomly pop up in your prurient mind .

    Again, wah, wah, wah………….inferior white gentiles, etc. Your reply did nothing but reinforce my original point.

    I don’t think white gentiles are inferior at all , their accomplishments are too many to list . Alt Right White Nationalists are not representative of gentiles at large . You have to admit that when white nationalists make it to the sunshine and go to rallies and etc they usually make a fool of themselves and the alt right at large . Recent evidence is the White Nationalist at the Rebel Flag rally that passed out and need help from a black cop to even walk to the shade .Another is the Klansman at the KKK rally at Anaheim California that got attacked by group of protesters and had to be saved by a Jew . Another is the obviously inebriated fellow exiting a trump rallying telling protester to go to Auschwitz .

    By the way, for someone who claims to be an intellectual superior, your grammar and typography are quite poor. Maybe you should lay off the Xanax and get some fresh air.

    Again I do not claim to be intellectually superior , Im just a regular guy like anyone else . My grammar is adequate but not remarkable ,but I never claimed it was . I have never taken Xanax or any other prescription pill . The strongest pill I ever took was Aspirin , believe it or not . I am totally against drug use .

  143. How do you reconcile this belief of the founders and the verses in the Torah which directly state that a Messiah must return first with your beliefs that it’s not needed?

    The Torah does not state the the Messiah MUST return first . The passages you quoted , the first from Isaiah and the second from Ezekiel , stated that the jews will be gathered in Israel , it didn’t even mention the Messiah . And nowhere in the bible does it say that the Messiah MUST return before Jews are able to live in Israel . Even today most Jews do not live in Israel . Some do . In the end of days when the Messiah comes , he can gather the rest in Israel . The stuff you posted after that about Hertzl , honestly who cares .

    I am against MY tax dollars being used to support an Apartheid State. I am against MY family, friends, and loved ones in the military being sent to die and be maimed in wars that are not for America’s safety, but for Israel’s.

    Israel is not an apartheid state , but several Islamic states are . Where converting to Christianity or Hinduism is a crime punishable by the death sentence . Where homosexuality is punished by the death sentence . Where women , who are over half the population have less rights than men. And on and on . American soldiers and government workers have been killed and maimed in many wars , whether one or the other benefited Israel is up for debate . Did the war in Libya for example have anything to do with Israel ? A thousand miles and 4 countries away , with an army that can’t project itself past its borders , that renounced nuclear capability . Syria , Iraq , I know alt right wants to blame it on Israel but its part of a larger worldwide problem where Islam is at war with dozens of states . The last few days alone saw 3 suicide bombs kill 100 people in 3 different countries , all perpetuated by Islamists .

    false claim that I would be happy if Jewish People were slaves to Goyim. Not only is it utter nonsense, it is extremely insulting.

    I didn’t say you would be happy about it ,I said it Might please you . I wasn’t sure . But now you say it wouldn’t please you , so I got my answer . Nevertheless the tiny sect that believes that the Messiah must come first , does believe they need to be slaves to gentiles . Neturei Karta , they number 2500 in the whole world .

    You are trying to smear people as being White Nationalist anti-Semites with absolutely no basis in fact.

    The point I was making was : If you focus on Israel but ignore Sudan which kills 100 times more , or China which kills 100 times more , or Indonesia which kills 50 times more or Russia or Syria which each kill 20 times more , what is the reason ?? , Or the fact that the only conflict in the world that Jews or Israelis are involved in gets more attention than the dozens of wars muslims have started and are currently waging in dozens of countries .
