It is time to give laudatory kudos to The Council on the National Interest (CNI) for doing what virtually no one else has had the guts to do in contemporary America: challenging the Jewish lobby in America, specifically the American Israeli Political Action Committee (AIPAC). CNI is specifically charging AIPAC with what is specifically provable and obvious: that the latter is a foreign lobby which is in the business of influencing (read "purchasing") the American government for purposes solely related to driving American domestic and foreign policy in a direction designed to benefit the government of Israel--to the exclusion of everything and everyone else.
Pat Buchanan once drew the ire of the Jewish-dominated American Media Establishment for referring to Washington's Capitol Hill as "Zionist Occupied Territory" (ZOA). If ever there was proof of the truth of Mr. Buchanan's charge, it came tonight in the form of the deliberate absence of major American network coverage of the anti-AIPAC protest sponsored by CNI, which had its genesis at the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue and 7th street in the District. The denizens of ABC, NBC, and CBS apparently deemed the issue of parental notification of minors seeking abortion--and the government-subsidized Viagra distributions to sexually predatory felons--to be more newsworthy than whether or not the National Government of the American People is owned lock-stock-and-barrel by a foreign country. One so grateful for the $5 billion a year in direct foreign aid subsidies received from the United States, that it regularly operates a spy ring to steal state secrets from its major benefactor. Move over Jonathan Pollard. Make room for accused AIPAC spies, Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman.
Mr. Rosen was AIPAC's policy director; Mr. Weissman was, conveniently enough, AIPAC's senior analyst on Iran. Their American contact, Mr. Larry Franklin, was a National Security Agency analyst with a specialty in matters Iranian and connections to the policy big wigs on the Neo-Conservative Right who reportedly find preemptive war with Iran to be the next major project to be undertaken by the American government and the Likudniks who permeate its National Security Establishment. Howard Kohr, AIPAC's Executive Director, fired these Kosher Benedict Arnolds only upon the advice of Nathan Lewin, the lawyer retained by AIPAC to deal with the FBI espionage investigation. It seems Mr. Lewin has more than a pretty good idea that federal indictments against Rosen and Weissman are just around the proverbial corner.
So what is the response of the United States government to this latest spy debacle involving Israel? To do, of course, what any sovereign government would do under the circumstances: send the Secretary of State of the United States, Condolezza Rice, along with senior members of the United States Congress from both major parties, to an AIPAC-sponsored event tonight in downtown Washington. The immediate purpose was to have dinner with the ultimate handler of all of these targeted espionage operations--the Prime Minister of Israel himself, Ariel Sharon. The National Chairmen of both the Republican and Democratic Parties were in attendance as well. And AIPAC proudly observed in the May 19th Washington Post that "half the Senate and a third of the House" would be present for this culinary event of luminaries in Belshazzar's court. It was an event clearly drenched in both greenbacks, shekels, and irony, all largely unappreciated by an American public dependent upon an Israel-First Inside-the-Beltway media. The latter effectively turned the dinner lights conveniently down low--to enshroud this gathering in the subterranean darkness of the Nation's Capitol. Why not turn the lights on? Apparently because the idea was to allow all of the participants to fly in under radar. While it worked this evening, it will not work much longer.
Ex-Director of Central Intelligence, Allen Dulles, once warned against "the slips that give away the whole show" in covert operations and intelligence gathering in the secret world. It may not be an accident that the Bush Administration commissioned the First Lady's PR trip to the Middle East this week to achieve public diversion from the presence of Sharon in New York yesterday and Washington today, along with the AIPAC espionage investigation and the presence of official Washingtondom at tonight's AIPAC dinner. It may also be less than a coincidence that the BBC journalists' strike of 24 hours duration in the UK was timed to match the time frame of the gala for the rotund PM of the Jewish State this evening in Babylon-By-The-Potomac. And, as is often the case with the Corporate Media, what is uncovered and unspoken is often more significant than what is. This is definitely the case for May 23, 2005 in the Nation's Capitol.
The bad news for the AIPAC operatives and the denizens of Zionist Occupied Territory, however, is this. Thanks to the Council for the National Interest, the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA), the work of libertarian-oriented human rights activist Carol Moore, and a host of other groups and individuals across the political spectrum associated with the anti-AIPAC protest in Washington, average Americans are beginning to learn the darker truths about the Zionist lobby and its symbiotic relationship with the American Empire. The thievery of the land of 750,000 Palestinians in 1948; the exterminations at Deir Yassin; the role of Begin, Shamir, and the Stern Gang in bombing the King David Hotel in Jerusalem; the murder of Count Bernadotte of Sweden; and years of false-flag covert operations designed to maintain Allen Dulles's dictum of secrecy in covert operations "from inception to eternity," have not impeded the beginning of the "showing of the slip."
This is especially true in the wake of the fraudulent case presented by Bush and Blair for the war of preemption, occupation, and counterinsurgency in Iraq. It is no accident that the perpetrators of this never-ending tragedy are all policy makers with provable political and money trails that lead back to Tel Aviv. The same is true for the war against Syria and Iran that is brewing in the pot at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Capitol South, the Pentagon, and Langley. The patience of the American public is beginning to fray in the wake of the expenditure of $200 billion, the loss of almost 2,000 American lives, and the killing of 100,000 Iraqis in merely the latest phase of what began with Bush I in 1991. If the failure of American policy in Iraq, a nation of 26 million people, is indicative of future problems in the region, one may ask how 70 million Iranians will be effectively subdued in a nation with three times the land mass of its Mesopotamian neighbors--and possessive of a proud nationalism and fervent Shiism that will add Mexican salsa and Texan BBQ sauce to the explosive mix that is in the midst of reaching 212.9 degrees Fahrenheit.
And the world will note that any American military preemption against Iran will be undertaken in alliance with the Middle East's chief nuclear, chemical, and biological power--Israel--a non-signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) allegedly held in high esteem by Washington--unless it involves accountability for the Jewish State. And what if Americans are ever told the truth about Israeli intelligence operations with Communist China that have injured American interests from time to time, especially the joint purloining of nuclear secrets at Los Alamos in the PROMIS affair? Dying for Eretz Yisrael in an American uniform will begin to look less attractive by the atomic second.
There is one more ominous sign for Sharon, Bush, and the Boys in both Washington and Tel Aviv. Dissension against an Israel-First foreign policy in the United States is beginning to involve not only independent voices of moral concern on the left and among independent voters, but within a resurgent Old American Right as well. It is presently lost to the New York Times and the Washington Post that the real American Right has no use for Zionism and the domestic Jewish lobby in America whatsoever, any more than it espouses the statism of a powerful Federal government and allegiance to the institutions of the New World Order (NWO). This burgeoning, brewing dissent has not yet come to the explosive surface, but it will--when military conscription is re-instituted in the United States to claim the lives and blood of more of the nation's young people in the service, not of America, but of Zionism and the State of Israel. John Hagee, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Ralph Reed, and the other denizens of a Christian Right leadership owned by handlers in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, will be thrown overboard along with their Neo-Conservative allies in the National Security State and Republican Party Establishments in Washington, replaced by a grass-roots prairie-fire on the Right--sick of foreign war, unrestrained illegal immigration, exploding national debt, the outsourcing of the manufacturing sector of the American economy, a malignant popular culture, and a domestic police state.
The chief sign of this is the creation of the new Mothers Against the Draft, involving long-time conservative activists Janine Hansen of Utah and Debbie Hopper of St. Louis, Missouri. It is not in the game plan of these women--or their burgeoning support base around the country--to lose children and grand-children to the policy-menu served by AIPAC and Ariel Sharon to official Washington tonight. And these determined patriotic Americans will not lose.
Council for the National Interest--meet Mothers Against the Draft!!!!!
That marriage will symbolize the end of AIPAC, the destruction of the American Empire, and the re-establishment of the American Constitutional Republic.
And how do the rest of us help? Start with the worldwide Internet dissemination of CNI's full page ad running in tomorrow's New York Times and Washington Post. Then begin worldwide Net distribution of the URL for Mothers Against the Draft. These initial acts can be the beginning of a new clarion call in the night for freedom, and the victory of good over evil. Support these unarmed volunteers with time and money. The clock is ticking. The hour is late. And nothing less than victory will do in the war that really matters.
