Targeting AIPAC

Targeting AIPAC

by Stephen Lendman

On January 23, Occupy AIPAC announced plans to confront the powerful Israeli Lobby in Washington from March 2 - 6. More on what's planned below.

Since last September, OWS inspired affiliate groups. Among others they include Occupy Together, Occupy Everything, Occupy Arrests, Occupy Police, Occupy Marines, Occupy Veterans, Occupy Writers, Occupy Filmakers, Occupy Schools, Occupy the World Wide Web, Occupy Freedom, Occupy NATO, Occupy Congress, Occupy the White House, and Occupy Your State Capital America.

Many communicate online through social networks like Facebook. They spread information globally and hopefully inspire others to join a worldwide movement for change.

From March 4 - 6, AIPAC will hold its annual Washington conference. Deferentially, politicians, presidents, their hangers-on, media scoundrels and others show up to pay homage to its influence and the government it represents.

AIPAC's an unregistered foreign agent. Calling itself "America's Pro-Israel Lobby," it's represented Israeli interests since founded in 1953. In 1963, it was incorporated as a division of the American Zionist Council (AZC), its precursor.

Virtually no one in Congress confronts it. Doing so is a career-ender. Notably, it has virtual veto power over war and peace, trade and investment, multi-billion dollar arms sales, enormous handouts to Israel, and all Middle East policies affecting the Jewish state under Democrat and Republican administrations alike.

It's a weapon of mass destruction, fronting for Israeli crimes. Among other tactics, it spuriously rails against Syria, Iran, Hamas, and Hezbollah.

It calls Iran "the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism and is racing toward a nuclear weapons capability."

It calls Hizbollah, Hamas, as well as Iraq and Afghanistan "Insurgents" its "proxy armies."

It falsely accuses Syria of "brutally crush(ing) the growing protest movement (while) maintaining its support for terrorist groups." It says Assad "undermin(es) peace and security."

It calls Hamas, Palestine's legitimate government, a "terrorist group....with the self proclaimed goal of the destruction of Israel."

It calls Hezbollah (part of Lebanon's ruling coalition government) "an Iranian-backed terrorist network that poses a direct threat to American interests and Israel, (and) has killed more Americans than any terrorist group other than al-Qaeda...."

Since inception, AIPAC lacked credibility. It spews lies and hate. It viciously attacks opponents. It should be banned for not registering as a foreign agent and prosecuted for libel.

Instead, by intimidating Congress, it gets free reign to do what it pleases and attracts political Washington en masse to its annual conference.

Confronting AIPAC

Move over AIPAC now calls itself Occupy AIPAC. Over 120 organizations endorse it.

They include American Jews for a Just Peace, American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, Artists Against Apartheid, CODEPINK, Christians for Palestinian Rights, Citizens for Palestinian Self-Determination, Friends of Palestine, Global Exchange, If Americans Knew, International Solidarity Movement, Rachael Corrie Foundation, Stop AIPAC, United for Peace and Justice, US Boat to Gaza, Veterans for Peace, and many others.

The pro-Israeli Commentary magazine attacked the initiative. On January 20, Jonathan Tobin headlined, "Occupy AIPAC Next Step for Leftist Group," saying:

"Many Jewish liberals have been in denial about the anti-Israel and often anti-Semitic tone of much of the Occupy Wall Street movement since its inception."

In other words, when hard truths can't be denied, it call those supporting them "anti-Semites." Commentary fronts for Israel. The US Campaign to End the Occupation's Josh Ruebner calls it a "neo-con rag."

It's that and much more. It backs Israel's worst crimes, and organizations like AIPAC, promoting war and violence. Why else would activists for peace, justice, and Palestinian rights plan confronting them in March.

Ruebner says, "So, yeah, Commentary, we'll be there protesting AIPAC's agenda and all your silly accusations about who we are and what we stand for won't stop us."

Occupy AIPAC

In May 2011, during AIPAC's conference, it organized an initiative called "Move over AIPAC: Building a New US Middle East Policy."

Then and now, it aims "to wean US policy away from AIPAC's grip towards an even-handed position that respects international law and the human rights of all people in the region."

From March 2 - 6, it's coming back and asks others to join it. It's agenda includes teach-ins, cultural performances, protests, creative direct actions, educational panels on Iran, Palestine, the Arab uprisings, and OWS, and a preview of the forthcoming film, "Roadmap to Apartheid."

Panel discussions and workshops include:

"Preventing War, Promoting Peace: Shifting US Policy Toward Real Diplomacy with Iran"

"From the Arab Uprisings to the Occupy Movement: Freedom & Justice vs. the Right-Wing Israel Lobby"

"Palestine, Israel & the US - Changing Discourse, Challenging Policy"

"Poets, Comedians and Musicians - Tears and Laughter for Palestine"

"Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions"

"Injustice Anywhere is a Threat to Justice Everywhere: Palestine and the African American Experience"

"Ending Military Aid to Israel"

March 6 is called Lobbying Day - Lobbying Congress for a just peace in the Middle East. This and more is planned throughout the March 2 - 6 gathering.

Occupy AIPAC calls it "a mandatory 'occupy target.' " Now's the time to oppose "the stranglehold the Israel lobby continues to hold over our government."

It's essential to confront it actively with sustained pressure. Showing up in Washington is step one.

How I could write what I did before without mentioning the power behind the "throne" Jesuit...  Well... if you have doubts as to whether the Illuminati exists, you need to do a lot more homework.  But it is NOT an enemy of the Vatican, It IS the Vatican.  It IS the Mormon banking cult.   It is organized crime/Luciferianism.  They justify evil for the ends.  Mormons:  Remember your leaders mentioning "Secret Combinations"... Remember in the temple where there are different religious men walking down the same path and comparing notes?  How you took your endowments while taking on Lucifer's power?  Secret names, secret handshakes?  GET A CLUE.  They are making sure that when the time comes, that you are shown to have KNOWN.  I just decoded it for you, now you have no excuse to go on benefiting from "protections" you purchase supporting this world's evil in the name of Christ.  Catholics included.  It is about a DIRECT RELATIONSHIP with him.  Our souls are lost in evils that seek to be gurus of "the word"... and man over us.  The only reason that Religious leaders predicted what is happening is because THEY ARE MAKING IT HAPPEN.  The Mormon church is a terrible, terrible evil organization that hides behind the good works of its members.  The leadership (business men, one even high CIA) is covertly promoting a bloodline of Jesus and Mary Magdalene using my ancestor's stonemasonry Rosslyn Chapel, Scottland in their (The cartel's) DaVinci Code propaganda and their fake "lawsuit" with writers of BBC's Holy Blood Holy Grail.  The "grail" is outing the money-changing!  Not a bloodline of Jesus and Mary Magdalene.  Freemasonry in its earliest form was to hide truth in plain sight.  V is for vendetta.  It is the number 22 (22nd letter).... notice how often it pops up?  They speak in certain code, originated in Hebrew.  Even these groups are organized by various intelligence social control agencies.  Hell, I believe that 4409 is a fraud.  You just don't get $28,000 handed to you by the City unless you are in on a racket.  I will take that to my grave as the ex-wife of a Cohen who was miraculously assigned to Risk Management for Chandler after the Cartel assigned him as "of counsel" to Phillips & Lyon to move their for their money-laundering through Realty Executives locations (three to be exact, always his neighbor, our relationship ending with Zions bank in Tempe:  National Bank of Arizona, then he moved next to a dentist that caused about $30k in damage to my teeth in Tempe... deliberately where they share the same lawyer that sued me in an accident that wasn't my fault in Tempe- one of their crooked cops, a Lt. that I am suing named James Click helped them pilfer $35k in just a few weeks, before I could prove the connection)... That is from knowing Jason Shelton personally, and things he made known to me.  Also from researching Shelton family name relationship to Jewish racketeering and bootlegging... I noticed a serious link to St. Louis, MO, where the Mormon Garden of Eden resides... LOL.  Shelton pointed out George Ganem's address for silver jewelry is 4409 in Tempe, where amazingly, my marriage to a Cohen (prophet of the counterfeit jews) and a Mormon wedding rings were purchased before George Ganem supposedly left the Mormon church.  My step father had him create a 300 ring for him (bowling), and it is not by accident that bowling uses an upside down triangle, like pool, and that Nemo (omen backwards) looks like the 13th pool ball (also upside down triangle).  Notice the number of the wrecked ship being 22 in the movie?  You will see these codes, originally developed by the Hebrew language, all through Hollywood.  Even the term Catch 22 is not by accident.  This is for those who are off the beach now and actually deep-sea diving.  It is time to wake up and seek the truth for yourselves people.  That is where salvation lies.  Not by getting caught up in the garbage that fake identities on this site get you warped into and distracted by.

My last post, remotely deleted while typing it... outing the Mormon/Vatican/Crown Banking Cartel being this foreign agent/phenomenon.  If you want to understand what is really going on, research the Khazarian Empire and how it perverted what it is today to be Jewish.  Instead of a people, a race, it has morphed to an Illuminati satanic cult.  As the CIA was created with Israel, so was the RICO agenda that Kennedy spoke of when passing the 1961 RICO act.  Revelations 2:9 and 3:9 predicts this.  Just as CIA creates mind control cults, groups like Al Qaeda, the Vatican (Roman Empire reincorporated to create a monopoly on Jesus) has had great power in this area for thousands of years:  Social control through religious rites.  I say use their own tools against them!  INFILTRATE AND DOMINATE!  Hell, Freemasonry isn't even a Christian organization anymore established to the 32nd degree (number of teeth in the mouth interestingly).  It became satanic at the 33rd degree.  Not hard to hijack a good cause with evil intentions and murderous banking cartels that benefit from RICO (Mormon and Vatican have their own intelligence-murderers to be exact)...  Money changing never went away, it got more sophisticated and corporate.  Just as did the Roman Empire, a rein"corp"oration.  God Bless those seeking truth.  Good will prevail over evil.
