Another former insider is spilling his guts:
"The reason why I want to tell this story now is, we may be going down a path, helped along by the American Jewish community, and maybe even Israel, that is going to be worse even than the one we're on now - some sort of military confrontation with Iran. That worries me. Because they will be able to blame [it] on the Jews, to a great extent," says Weismann, who worked at AIPAC from 1993 until 2005, much of that time as the group's deputy director of foreign policy. Though Weismann disagrees sharply with those who say that AIPAC played a critical role in pushing for the 2003 U.S. decision to invade Iraq, he believes a war with Iran -- which he says "would be the stupidest thing I ever heard of" -- might well be blamed on AIPAC's leaders and their constituents . "What the Jews' war will be is Iran," he says. "Not Iraq."
Lawrence Davidson, a history professor who I infer from the piece is himself Jewish, presents in Counterpunch today a truly grim picture of where he fears Israel may be headed demographically, and thus politically. http://bit.ly/lQxusv The very fact that such a scenario is on the radar screen within the Jewish community itself makes it essential that the USA begin at least partially decoupling the joined-at-the-hip relationship.
So far the only Jews who are speaking up against the Zionist Israel and its appendages like AIPAC are the Ultra-Orthodox Anti-Zionist Jews. Every time that the Anti-Zionist Jews speak up, the AIPAC tentacles makes sure that they are either muffled/drowned out/made sure that there is no media coverage of their Anti-Zionist-Anti-Israel protests.
Same thing happens on the Christian side as the Zionist Christians like Hagee/Robertson, etc. muffle out any other Christians who dare to speak out against the situation at hand.
The AIPAC crowd also have the U.S. medias and U,S. Federal/State/Local judicial and law enforcement sewn up to ensure that the Anti-Zionist/Anti-Israel/Anti-AIPAC crowd make no traction in the courts/legal avenues.
In short, we the U.S. are screwed, and the only part of our government with the capacity to stand up to Israel and its AIPAC appendages is DoD. Israel's government through their stoolies are working 24/7 to try and make sure that DoD's hands are tied and their complaints muffled....
