Mazin Qumsiyeh | Meddling in Elections

Just so that we do not forget who really meddles in US elections and US politics all the time.

“For many years I have felt that the situation in the Middle East was very nearly hopeless.  The fundamental problem for us is that we have lost our freedom of action in the Middle East and are committed to policies that promote neither our own national interest nor the cause of peace.  AIPAC (the American-Israeli Public Affairs Committee) and its allied organizations have effective working control of the electoral process. They can elect or defeat nearly any congressman or senator that they wish, with their money and coordinated organization”
Senator William Fulbright

Just so that we do not forget who really meddles in US elections and US
politics all the time.

AIPAC role in US elections

AIPAC is not the only group though it is the most visible that influences
US elections to serve Israeli (not American interests). Here is a partial
listing http://www.ifamericansknew.org/us_ints/introlobby.html

We have to remember that it was Israel which pushed for the war on Iraq and
damaged US Politicians who opposed the war (e.g. the Israel lobby boasts of
its influence to get rid of US congress people like Paul Findley and
Cynthia McKinney). See ttp://qumsiyeh.org/connectingthedotsiraqpalestine/

And look at The Israel Lobby by John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt

And then there are the billionaire Zionists like Sheldon Adelson who all
contending republicans for president court

And who can forget that a Jewish lawyer by the name of Harry Katz talked to
head of AIPAC in 1991 and that the head of AIPAC boasted about theiur
negotiations” with Bill Clinton for support but only if the Zionists get
key cabinet positions (secretary of state and as his national security
adviser)

And can we forget that Prime Minister Netanyahu discarded protocol, snubbed President Obama and addressed AIPAC’s US Congress in March 2015 interfering directly in US Policy that was interested in best deal for the US (with Iran). Thankfully, they did not succeed then to change Obama’s discourse so they now ensured to have a successor who will annul the deal

Just last week, an Israeli diplomat was caught on tape boasting about
meddling in British elections and politics

For more on politics, elections etc, see this chapter from my book “Sharing
the Land of Canaan” http://qumsiyeh.org/chapter11/

And this is only the tip of the iceberg. So please share these links to
show who really meddles in democratic elections. (Someone ought to write a
book)
