Article: Why does the peace movement ignore AIPAC

This is a year old but worth a look if you didn't read it the first time.

""AIPAC!" was the forceful one-word answer of Congressman Michael Capuano when we asked him, "Why was the Iran clause forbidding war on Iran without Congressional approval taken out of the recent supplemental for the Iraq war funding?" I nearly fell out of my chair at his reply - not because this was news but because of who had just said it. Capuano is a close ally of Nancy Pelosi, her fixer and enforcer. That was last Friday morning when a small delegation from Cambridge and Somerville, MA, were visiting the Congressman, known for his bluntness, as part of the nationwide UFPJ (United For Peace and Justice) home lobbying effort during the Congressional recess.

Later that day, Dennis Kucinich made an appearance at Harvard, where he was asked the same question, the reason for removing the Iran provision. "AIPAC," I volunteered out loud. Kucinich looked my way and said, "Exactly." Again my chair almost failed to contain me."

and it goes on.

(another guilty party is the American Enterprise Institute)

Wesley Clark also said the Bush Administration intends to “take out 7 countries in 5 years. Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and back to Iran”

So it seems that they have decided on Iran - the upside being that it will be so bad all the other countries on their list will probably get sucked into the fighting anyway and they won't have to come up with any more excuses.

Because "Greater Israel" is the prize ...

for the NWO. The Satan-worshipping moneychangers are doing their best to fulfill the prophecies of the Old Testament, the New Testament and the Quran (with a different ending, of course). I don't know if this is because they believe it, or because a majority of Christians, Jews and Muslims believe it, making us easier to control. Keep in mind, three of the world's great religions started in the Middle East. The Peace Movement ignores AIPAC, because the Peace Movement (just like the war machine) is largely financed by the NWO, who then gets to control the debate. Quick! When were Ron Paul, Bob Barr, Chuck Baldwin, Paul Craig Roberts or Justin Raimondo last asked to speak at an antiwar rally?
This is the same reason Keith Olbermann praises Obama for his opposition to the Iraq War and Occupation, but has never, in the eight months I've watched his show, mentioned Ron Paul's name, not even once.

yes

Keith Olbermann is a disgrace.

"The first thing a man will do for his ideals is lie" - that's Keith's motto I think.

"What does conservatism today stand for? It stands for war. It stands for power. It stands for spying, jailing without trial, torture, counterfeiting without limit, and lying from morning to night."

Lew Rockwell

When did Clark say that?

AIPAC is majorly running our government, along with other elites, but they are a major player. I think the only reason we don't address the issue more here is because there are so many issues to address. Our government needs an overhaul in so many areas, but basically the government is bigger than the people and now it is going to be difficult if not impossible to reverse the horror.
