AIPAC's War on Palestine

AIPAC’s War on Palestine

by Stephen Lendman

AIPAC is an unregistered foreign agent operating illegally. Just societies would shut it down, holding its officials fully accountable for lawbreaking.

Its agenda is pure evil, supporting Israel’s killing machine, a hate-mongering fascist rogue state, vilifying Palestinians as “terrorists,” blaming them for its own high crimes.

Washington backs what demands condemnation. One tyrannical regime supports another, a real axis of evil along with other rogue state partners.

AIPAC calls heroic Palestinian self-defense against unrestrained Israeli brutality “incitement fueling terrorism.” Premeditated Israeli provocations responsible for ongoing violence is all their fault.

Netanyahu “sought to ease the violence,” it said. Forty-two murdered Palestinians since October 1, thousands wounded and/or brutalized, as well as hundreds arrested and tortured prove otherwise - including young children treated as ruthlessly as adults, women targeted like men, an entire population terrorized for not being Jewish.

Western officials, supportive media and AIPAC consider all Palestinians knife-wielding terrorists. Israelis are poor victimized people. It’s soldiers, police and other security forces conform to the highest legal, ethical and moral standards, they claim.

You have to be a fool, liar or racist to believe this rubbish. “The  United States must urge…Abbas to do more to reduce tensions, condemn the recent wave of violence and return to direct bilateral Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations,” says AIPAC. 

Fact: Abbas is part of the problem, not the solution, acting solely as Israel’s enforcer, betraying his own people, why he’s so reviled.

Fact: Washington and Israel partner in each other’s high crimes. They bear full responsibility for premeditated ongoing state terror, brutalizing defenseless Palestinians.

Fact: The peace process is the greatest hoax in modern times - dead on arrival each time fruitless talks are held.

AIPAC accused Abbas of making an “inflammatory” UN General Assembly address. It was meaningless flim flam duplicity, scoffed at by most Palestinians for good reason.

Jewish civilians are being attacked by knife-wielding Palestinians, AIPAC claims. A handful of incidents were blown way out of proportion. Most others were disproved by eyewitnesses and video evidence.

Cold-blooded Israeli mass murder goes unmentioned, as well as terrorizing an entire population for decades, waging naked aggression at its discretion.

Palestinian victims are guilty of Israeli high crimes. They assault settlers, not the other way around. They use potent weapons like slingshots and their bare hands - against one of the world’s most powerful killing machines.

AIPAC supports the right of extremist settlers to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque where they don’t belong - along with heavily armed soldiers and police terrorizing Muslim worshipers, forcibly removing them, damaging sacred Islamic artifacts - and doing the same thing numerous times.

“Israel is committed to peace,” AIPAC blustered. It quoted Netanyahu saying “I remain committed to a vision of two states for two peoples in which a demilitarized Palestinian state recognizes the Jewish state. Israel is fully committed to…strictly maintaining the status quo on the Temple Mount.”

Fact: Israel deplores peace and stability. Violence and chaos serve its ruthless agenda. Netanyahu once called the peace process a waste of time. While campaigning for reelection, he affirmed unequivocal opposition to Palestinian self-determination - not now or ever.

AIPAC is a lying machine, one-sidedly supporting Israel. Backed by all US administrations and virtually the entire Congress - rogue elements in bed with each other, at the expense of the entire free world.
