  • Pro-Israel Lobby Caught Boasting of Its Influence in Washington

    Interesting documentary:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XytkI7afHcQ

    For the past few years all anyone has talked about is the potential influence Russia has over our election process and government policy. Russia has been criticized for creating social media accounts and spreading information, a lot of which false, in order to manipulate our public. Which is fair to be concerned about, my question is if stronger outside influence is coming from a different country, shouldn't that be just as noteworthy as well?

    In it, leaders of the pro-Israel lobby speak openly about how they use money to influence the political process, in ways so blunt that if the comments were made by critics, they’d be charged with anti-Semitism.
    Controlling the narrative and stifling free speech in the process:

    A companion version of the film, which looked at the Israel lobby’s influence in the United Kingdom, did make it to air and was the subject of intense controversy. It exposed a plot by an Israeli embassy official in the United Kingdom to “take down” pro-Palestinian members of Parliament, leading to his resignation.

    That film, however, included a snippet of footage from the United States. Officials here quickly realized that they, too, had been infiltrated. In the U.K., the Israel lobby lodged an official complaint claiming the series was anti-Semitic, but the U.K.’s communications agency rejected the claim, finding that “the allegations in the programme were not made on the grounds that any of the particular individuals concerned were Jewish and noted that no claims were made relating to their faith.”

    Pro-Israel officials in the United States, rather than file an official complaint, exerted political pressure. A bipartisan group of 19 lawmakers wrote to the Justice Department requesting an investigation into “the full range of activities undertaken by Al Jazeera in the United States,” and suggesting that the organization be made to register as a foreign agent. Ultimately, Qatar bent to the pressure and killed the documentary.

    So?

    Sounds like more of the same TDS you spout over and over again every single day. How much influence does Soros and his crooked cronies have on the Democrats? Haven't seen you complain about that.

      Actually I was accused of being an anti-semite for bringing up Soros and his influence over democrats and thus the country. Ask "everything is anti-semitic" Slick if you don't believe me. So yes I have complained about that.

      At any rate, this thread has absolutely 0 to do with Trump, maybe if you stopped being so damn sensitive and defensive you could see that and understand what's really at stake.

        Do you have proof of Soro's deeds?

              A lobbyist boasted in Washington about influence. In other news, water was wet, gravity still works, and Massena hates Trump.

              Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

                  Except they're not just lobbying, I would suggest watching the actual video. They're engaged in the same behavior as the Russians which made front page news for 2 years. But, when Israel does it and even to a larger degree, it's no big deal?

                      Sorry, but the fact that your media has been making crap up for the last 2 years isn't going to impress anyone, either.

                        I don't know what you mean by your media, the MSM isn't reporting on this. Yet, they've been all over Russia and ignore Israel despite evidence that the latter country is being far more invasive and effective. The media is just as bias as you and the rest of the American public.

                            The fact that Tactikill is using as source Al Jazeera ( Propaganda TV from Qatar) which supports ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood and which sadly enough is allowed to poison the minds of the American people, is striking : it proves that the sympathy of Tactikill is with the enemies of his country . The fact that journalists of CNN, etc were willing to work for the enemies of their country also proves where are their sympathies .

                              Soros is not Jewish ( he hates Jews ) because he does not consider himself as Jewish .
