AIPAC Wants War on Iran
AIPAC keeps pushing Congress and Obama to wage war.
by Stephen Lendman
AIPAC is an unregistered foreign agent. It calls itself "America's Pro-Israeli Lobby." It's represented Israeli interests since 1953.
Virtually no one in Congress confronts it. Doing so is a career-ender. It has enormous influence over US Middle East policies affecting Israel, including war and peace.
It disseminates disinformation, lies and hate. It viciously attacks opponents. It calls Iran "the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism and is racing toward a nuclear weapons capability."
It manufactures threats to promote fear. It wants the Islamic Republic destroyed. It targets other regional states. It wants unchallenged Israeli regional dominance.
James Petras says its sole purpose "is to ensure Israel's unchallenged military and political power over a huge region from North Africa to the Persian Gulf."
Its annual meeting "is the most outrageous public display of Zionist-Jewish power as it shapes US foreign policy."
It threatens "to drag the US into another major war in the Middle East - this time against Iran." Doing so is lawless, madness, and self-destructive.
Its web site says "While the World Talks, Iran Enriches; More Pressure Needed." A litany of disinformation and lies followed.
Negotiations failed. Iran got more time "to advance its nuclear program and cleanse a suspected nuclear site."
The international community "must dramatically" increase pressure.
Iran "is believed to have carried out experiments on nuclear explosives."
"Satellite images indicate Iran has been working to cleanse (a suspect) site by removing buildings and soil."
