It is long past time for American politicians to quit carrying water for the state of Israel and its powerful U.S. lobby. Congress' craven obedience to the lobby is a disgrace.

America's strategic interests in the Middle East lie with the Arab countries. Israel is a strategic and economic liability. The U.S. government's slavish support of Israel brands us as a hypocrite and is responsible for most of the hostility toward the U.S.

Americans have been brainwashed into believing that it's the Arabs, and the Palestinians in particular, who don't want peace. That is a big lie. The Palestinians made an enormous concession when they agreed to settle for a state on 18 percent of Palestine. Saudi Arabia proposed several years ago a peace plan in which all of the Arab countries would recognize Israel in exchange for Israeli withdrawal from the occupied territories. The Israelis rejected it out of hand, just as they reject Arab efforts to have the Middle East a nuclear-free zone.

Israel's goal is and always has been to take all of Palestine and to get rid of the Palestinians. The Israelis employed ethnic cleansing in 1948 and again in 1967 to make hundreds of thousands of Palestinians refugees. For 40 years, the Israelis have refused to give back the Palestinian and Syrian lands they seized in war. They have blatantly violated international law by building settlements on occupied land, and by violating the airspace of other sovereign countries.

Palestinians are the victims, not the villains, in this case. The Israelis make their lives miserable in the hope they will give up and leave. At the same time, the Israelis, in cahoots with the American government, maintain a charade of proposed peace talks. They of course never come to fruition. The Israeli government is not about to allow the Palestinians to have a viable state. If they give the Palestinians anything, it will be a patchwork of enclaves completely surrounded and controlled by Israel. Having created 700,000 Palestinian refugees, the Israelis have from the beginning refused to allow them to return to their homes, farms and businesses, all of which Israel confiscated on the specious grounds that they were "abandoned property."

Without U.S. aid, which now is conservatively estimated to total $108 billion (think of the infrastructure and schools that amount could build in the U.S.), and without the U.S. wielding its veto every time the United Nations tries to act, none of this would be possible.

It is not just the Muslim world that hates our pro-Israel foreign policy, for sound reasons that it is unjust and cruel. Europeans and others around the world are contemptuous of America's slavelike obedience to a small foreign power. It has gotten to the point that to be seen as an ally of the United States is viewed negatively.

The Arab and Muslim people, with the exception of al-Qaeda, don't hate America or Americans. It is the pro-Israel foreign policy and, of course, our invasions of two Muslim countries that they hate. Virtually all of the anti-Arab and anti-Muslim propaganda generated in this country has its source in the Israeli lobby and in Israel itself.

Thanks to the unconstitutional largess of the cowardly Congress, Israel is a rich country and one of the world's leading military powers. It doesn't need American aid. It is time to quit dancing to the tune of a lobby with dual loyalties and to pursue America's interests.

Americans are being betrayed by their own politicians, and it's time to treat those scoundrels with the contempt they deserve.

I only wish to add, that a society which depends on ethnic, "cleansing", to exist, has no right to exist. And as such, "cleansing" cannot happen, without a few massacres, of people for being the wrong kind of Semites, along the way, (which means genocide, when not using zionist definitions); then such a society which depends on genocide, to exist, has no right to exist. As demographic changes develop, in what Israelis claim as theirs, continuance of zionist society, (imitation democracy, or not), has to require further ethnic, "cleansing" / genocide, in order to exist, and so has no right to exist; beyond what the grace of their victims, allows.

Charlie Reese has hit the nail right on the head. Israel is nothing more than a provocateur, goading the US into unjust wars for its benefit. Notice that the Israelis are the only ones in the Middle East with nuclear capability, and they have had vermin like Michael Pollard sell them our nuclear secrets which they in turn sold (actually traded for increased emigration to Israel) to Russia. It behooves no one but Israel for the US to go to war with any soveriegn nation in the Middle East becauseas Charlie states, none but Israel has the nuclear capability to send missiles to US soil.

The Israeli secret service murdered Dr. Gerald Bull in Geneva after they found out that he was going to help Iraq develop a "super gun" with nucular capability. Parts of the "gun" were found rusting in the Iraqi desert by Scott Ritter's team deployed to verify if there were WMD's in Iraq. His report reflected the fact that there were no WMD's. However, that warmonger, Bush who was coerced by Israel to go to (an illegal) war with Iraq. My big question is: why hasn't the (expletive deleted) been impeached?

The only thought I'd like to leave everyone with is this: Israelis are for themselves and for no other nation, country, whatever. They have an agenda, and are willing to do anything it takes to accomplish their goals. With friends like this America needs no enemies.

Insightful and flies in the face of the revised Israeli version of historical events.
