Congress: Who Will You Choose: AIPAC or Senator Chuck HagelMohamed Khodr for Salem-News.com
“The Modern Age is the Jewish Age, and the 20th century, in particular, is the Jewish Century.”
(WASHINGTON DC) - It is an outrage that the courageous columnist Mr. Jakob Augstein of Der Spiegel, a German magazine, has come under attack from the “Jewish Lobby” in the U.S. using the meaningless canard of calling him an “anti-Semite”, for his truthful statement that the Jewish Lobby has an enormous influence on U.S. foreign policy.
Of course the “Jewish Lobby” has such power and influence on the U.S. government; one only needs to read the main reason U.S. Senators, mostly Republicans vying for a piece of the Democrats Jewish subsidy, are opposing the nomination of Senator Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense.
According to a leading opponent of the nomination, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who appeared on CNN (Jan. 6) explaining his opposition by saying Senator Hagel “is very antagonistic to the State of Israel”.
What the Hell? Israel--- Senator Hagel is nominated by President Obama for Secretary of Defense of the United States, not Israel.
Has Senator Grraham lost his mental faculties or has he committed TREASON by doing the bidding of a foreign nation while betraying the interests of his own nation and the great State of South Carolina that elected him?
In fact Congress itself has proven time and time again that Israel’s demands are sacrosanct even if it means taking money from the mouths of American children to feed the military avarice of Israel that uses our weapons in direct contradiction of our laws to kill and commit genocide at will against the Palestinians knowing that Congress will be behind their mass murders no matter how many Palestinian children as massacred on a daily basis.
In the Congress that just ended no action was taken on emergency funds for Hurricane Sandy’s victims, extending unemployment benefits, the Farm Bill, Tax credits to needy families, the debt ceiling, the deficit, budget expenditures, and much more, yet despite the LIE that such actions would only make our deficits worst, the Congress did manage to find $695 Million for Israel.
Who do these elected officials think they serve? They either are for us or against us and thus need to be swept out of office.
Senator Hagel will face a difficult and at times a deliberately embarrassing questioning, but WE THE PEOPLE, will not let that happen.
These elected traitors will hear from America, all of America, that we as their employers demand they work for our interests and not for Israel or AIPAC.
The U.S. Senate is now faced with a critical “Litmus Test”: Will it choose America’s interests and confirm Senator Chuck Hagel or choose to serve Israel and its lobbies (AIPAC) by rejecting Senator Hagel’s nomination?
It’s simple: Will the Senate support America or Israel.
It’s beyond belief that a small foreign nation, Israel, would have the power to force the American Senate to have to choose it or the people they serve.
President Obama would not have nominated senator Hagel if he wasn’t assured the Democrats and some Republicans will eventually confirm him. Senator Carl Levin, Chair of the Armed Services Committee, has publicly endorsed Senator Hagel.
In my opinion Senator Hagel will be confirmed despite Republican, Neocon, and Jewish Lobby opposition (the triad behind the illegal immoral Iraq War)
With Hagel’s confirmation the “special relationship” between Israel and the U.S. will come into focus and a much needed review. Obama will have the confidence, along with Senator Kerry at State and Senator Hagel at Defense, and backbone to deal with Israel in a new light, a new foreign policy, that will prioritize America’s interest first and foremost.
No longer will Netanyahu be able to slap the American Vice President Joe Biden in Israel and Obama in the Oval office over his determination to annex the entire West Bank through unrelenting construction of illegal settlements and push this nation to pay and die again for a war against Iran.
It’s President Obama’s golden opportunity, but will he seize the moment to change history and enforce an American road map for peace in the Holy Land.
The world is tired and sick of the Jewish Zionist smear canard, Anti-Semitism, to attack anyone who dares question Israel's malignant policies against the Palestinians or their inordinate domination and influence upon America’s domestic and international policies.
The attack by the Jewish organizations, AIPAC, A.D.L., and the Simon Wiesenthal Center against the honorable American Senator Chuck Hagel, who unlike them, shed his blood serving this nation, is outrageous, despicable, and disgusting. To attack a decorate combat veteran because he won’t kowtow and rubber stamp Israel’s demands of this nation that has included much paying and dying for its war, is nothing short of a public betrayal of the nation where Jews have has their greatest success in all facets of society.
World Jewry wants to have it both ways, to be known as the invincible western power who manipulates the foreign policies of western government, but at the same time when the need arises to deflect blame for Israel's worldwide condemned policies against the Palestinians or any reference to their power and influence they immediately resort to the “Cry Baby Syndrome “of being victimized once again. If nuclear Israel is a victim than the world must be flat, blind, deaf, dumb, and mute.
They embody the oxymoron, "Powerful Victims".
The world has far too long appeased world Jewry and Zionism for domestic political and economic factors and that must stop today before more wars and genocides are committed against the Palestinians, Arabs, Iran. and Muslims in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen and beyond.
AIPAC, A.D.L., Zionist Organization of America, the American Jewish Congress, Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, and hundreds of other Jewish Organizations across the U.S., Europe, and the world, as "JEWISH" is as factual as the oxygen we breathe.
All of these organizations have ONE purpose and one purpose only --- to serve Israel's interests above and beyond the interests of their native countries.
There would be no Israel without the synergism of "Anti Semitism" and "Jewish Power", prior to the Holocaust, dominating the governments of Britain and the U.S.
Without President Truman's desperate need for Jewish money and votes, especially in New York State, to have a chance of winning the 1948 election, there would be no U.S. recognition or the establishment of Israel upon the stolen ethnically cleansed land of Palestine.
America's most popular politician in Truman's administration was the beloved General George Marshall who served as Secretary of State. Despite his powerful opposition along with the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the military, the C.I.A., and other governmental officials to Truman's recognition of the State of Israel, Truman nevertheless chose his selfish personal need for "Jewish Power" to deliver his election victory.
Why? "Domestic Considerations"; i.e "Jewish Power" and Wealth.
From the Truman Library Archives:
May 12, 1948: President Truman meets in the Oval Office with Secretary of State George Marshall, Under Secretary of State Robert Lovett, Counsel to the President Clark Clifford and several others to discuss the Palestine situation. Clifford argues in favor of recognizing the new Jewish state in accordance with the United Nations resolution of November 29, 1947. Marshall opposes Clifford's arguments, and contends they are based on domestic political considerations (Jewish Power). He says that if Truman follows Clifford's advice and recognizes the Jewish state, then he (Marshall) would vote against Truman in the election. Truman does not clearly state his views in the meeting.
Yet, Israel, a most ungrateful nation never stops manipulating our government, especially Congress (“the little knesset”), for more billions of dollars, more weapons, embarrassing United Nations Vetoes, wars without end, while simultaneously conducting one of the largest espionage programs in the country both within the government and from the industrial sector.
If Israel is a friend then who are the enemies.
Due to the ignorance and silence of the American people nothing has changed in American politics.
That is why it’s vital for all of us to contact our Senators and let them know that the confirmation of Senator Hagel is vital for our own interests and security, the hell with Israel.
May the world snatch its freedom from the jaws and tentacles of "Jewish Power" and may all of humanity enjoy the freedom, liberty, and life they were destined to have at birth.
Quotes on Jewish Power and Influence on the U.S. government
“The Israelis control the policy in the congress and the senate … somewhere around 80 percent of the senate of the United States is completely in support of Israel — of anything Israel wants….”
– Senator William Fulbright, Chairman Senate Foreign Relations Committee, October 7, 1973 on CBS’ “Face the Nation”.
“You can’t have an Israel policy other than what A.I.P.A.C. gives you around here,” Hollings said. “I have followed them mostly in the main, but I have also resisted signing certain letters from time to time, to give the poor president a chance.”
Senator Ernest Hollings (D-SC), Speech on Senate Floor, May 20, 2004 (prior to his retirement after serving 39 years in the Senate).
Notice how the subordination of South Carolina’s Republican Senator Lindsey Graham to Israel, not the U.S., proves Senator Hollings right with his opposition to Senator Hagel because of his “antagonism” to Israel.
“Practically every congressman and senator says his prayers to the Israel lobby–they have done an enormous job of corrupting the American democratic process.”
–George Ball, former Under Secretary of State and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and author of “The Passionate Attachment”, a critique of Israel’s power on U.S. MidEast Policy and its political, economic, and moral cost to the country.
“Jews hold stunningly powerful positions and clout in the United States. The combination of the American state’s power and the Jewish power in the areas of legislation, administration, media, law, business, culture, and entertainment have made the Jews a defining factor of contemporary America. Because Israel is inseparable from the identity of American Jews, Israel is inseparable from the American experience.”
–Avraham Burg, in his book: “The Holocaust Is Over; We Must Rise From its Ashes”, (Oct. 2008) Served as Speaker of the Knesset, Israel’s Parliament, and Chair of the Jewish Agency and World Zionist Organization.
“America controls the world, we control America. Never before have Jews exerted such an immense influence on the center of world power”.
–Uri Avnery, “The Night After”, Counterpunch, April 10, 2003 (Mr. Avnery is a former soldier who fought in the 1948 war and is a former member of Israel’s Knesset.
“We killed them out of a certain naive hubris. Believing with absolute certitude that now, with the White House, the Senate, and much of the American media in our hands, the lives of others do not count as much as our own…”
Ari Shavit, May 27, 1996 New York Times
Expressing sorrow and anger at Israel’s deliberate massacre of over 100 Lebanese civilians under U.N. protection in Qana, Lebanon; April 1996). (Note: Israel again in 2006 bombed Qana again.)
“A Jewish cabal have taken over the government in the United States and formed an unholy alliance with fundamentalist Christians... There is far too much Jewish influence in the United States.”
Tom Dalyell, a veteran member of the House of Commons candidly declared in May 2003 that pro-Israel Jews had taken control of America’s foreign policy, and had succeeded in pushing the US and Britain into war in Iraq. He is known as “Father of the House” because he is the longest- serving Member of Parliament.
Mohamed Khodr is an American Muslim born in the Middle East. He is political activist who frequently writes on the plight of Palestinians living under the brutal occupation of Israel, U.S. Foreign Policy, Islam, and Arab politics.
