Aipac puts foot down — on Obama

Is Benjamin Netanyahu taking heat from U.S. legislators for publicly disrespecting Barack Obama? Are you kidding? Congress is too busy bowing to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the pro-Israel lobbying group, which just happens to be meeting in Washington this weekend. More here.

  1. Netanyahu may want to watch his step. Yes, the war-hungry neocons are still among the foreign-policy apparatus with some power, but the appetite for more war is waning among the political masses. Ten years at a time is enough already. And, decidedly, Obama will pass on more war,and be re-elected, with or without the Jewish vote!

  2. Israel’s position is that Iran should NOT have a nuclear program of any kind. Obama’s position is that Iran should not have any nuclear weapons. Israel’s position is absurd. Iran has signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and understands its legal responsibilities under the law. Israel refuses to sign the NN-PTreaty or to even admit to having nuclear weapons. It has at least 200 nuclear bombs. Israel has never felt any responsibility or obligation to follow international law. Israel’s 45 year-long illegal occupation of Palestine and Jerusalem proves that. As does Israel’s illegal pre-emptive wars against its neighbors over the decades.
