An American Spring Against Israeli-Controlled
Republicans and Democrats?

Al-Jazeerah, CCUN, August 6, 2012
The coming elections in America have become a contest between
candidates who both try to be the leading panderer to Israel.
Watching grown men who aspire to lead America grovel and mollycoddle before
Israeli puppet-masters is disturbing.
America is in the hands of a
president who can't decide whether to be imperious or fawning, an
administration more devoted to Israel than to America, and a Congress that's
disdainful to most Americans and servile to AIPAC, ADL, AJC ZOA and 153
other American Jewish organizations.
The Republican candidate for
the presidency is more deplorable than the legislature and the wretched
Mitt Romney could hardly wait until he
arrived in Israel before he started pampering Benjamin Netanyahu.
But then he was competing against Obama's unpardonable generosity a day
before when the President signed a bill giving Israel an extra 70 million
dollars in military aid.
This, in addition to the 3 billion dollars
Israel receives each year, comes out of American taxpayers’ earnings.
Most American taxpayers are unaware that, in per capita terms, the United
States gives each Israeli a direct subsidy worth about $500 per year.
This largesse to individual Israelis should provoke deep resentment among
thousands of unemployed in America as well as to those who lost homes during
the financial crisis.
Israel's pawns in the US Congress refuse to
tax the wealthiest one percent. They refuse relief for home-owners, refuse
to fund the hiring of needed teachers, police and firemen, and refuse to
allocate funds for infrastructure maintenance of bridges, roads and national
The Israeli shills in Congress don't think twice about
funding the war-mongers who pushed America into a 4-trillion dollar war in
Iraq, and are pressuring for an encore in Iran.
If Obama loses the
election, he could regret the generosity designed to attract the Jewish
With typical political manoeuvring, Romney had to play
one-upmanship to the Associated Press. They report:
Republican’s campaign" says Romney "is happy steps being taken to enhance
security cooperation with Israel. But the bill “does nothing” to address
whether Obama recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel."
Propagandising Americans and flattering Israelis, Romney insisted that
“America's support of Israel should make every American proud."
sickening lie, Romney grunted “No country or organization or individual
should ever doubt this basic truth: A free and strong America will always
stand with a free and strong Israel.”
Neither America nor Israel is
free. America will only be free when it's rid of the albatross of Israel
around its neck; and Israel will never be free as long as it's an apartheid
state stealing land for illegal settlers.
The more he attempted to
justify Israel's false needs, the more Romney revealed either the ignorance
a presidential candidate shouldn't have or himself as a pathological liar.
“With Hezbollah rockets aimed at Israel from the north, and Hamas
rockets aimed from the south, with much of the Middle East in tumult, and
with Iran bent on nuclear arms, America's vocal and demonstrated commitment
to the defence of Israel is even more critical.”
In a brazen show of
how he would lead America into war, Romney insisted “We must lead the effort
to prevent Iran from building and possessing nuclear weapons capability."
No honest reference to Israel's nuclear capacity, no reference to
Israel's killer instincts in attacks in Gaza, Lebanon, Syria and Iraq,
Israel forces an American presidential candidate to join yet another Middle
East blood-letting by Israel.
Unless the American President and
Congress change course, 2013 may welcome an American spring.
