Final comment

The Israel Lobby taken as a whole carries out a variety of functions.   Some elements of the Lobby are most focused on ensuring that Congress approves legislation that promotes the interests of   the Israeli government (AIPAC, AIEF).   Other elements try to ensure that American public opinion strongly supports Israel (MEMRI, CAMERA, ADL).   Still other elements focus their attention on seeking to promote the continued close military alliance and cooperation between the US and Israel (JINSA, CSP, FIDF). In the background but nonetheless an integral part of the Israel Lobby are the many individuals and organizations that contribute financial resources to these various elements. When those same donors also provide large amounts of funding to organizations that directly and indirectly channel those funds to the illegal settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem then those illegal settlements de facto become part of the Israel Lobby.   Settlement subsidization has been Israeli policy for decades.   By assisting in the expansion of existing settlements and the establishment of new ones, the Israel Lobby is actively assisting in the execution of policies of the State of Israel.   Unfortunately, such actions conflict with the stated policies of the US government and violates international law. The support of Israel's illegal settlements by US citizens and organizations should stop.
