CNN’s Fareed Zakaria Wants Your Opinion About AIPAC’s Influence in America

CNN reporter, Fareed Zakaria has asked if we think AIPAC has too much influence in America these days.  He asks we email him our responses to the following address.  Included below is mine.  FareedZakariaGPS@cnn.com
“… do you believe groups that lobby on behalf of Israel have too much influence?”

What a question is this. Why of course, they have too much influence. That is why you are asking. But what are you really asking? Are you asking if it is advisable for a special interest group to cow the leaders of a free and open society to their will, no matter how illegal and immoral that will may be? Or are you asking if the general population is willing to accept it as the way of the world?

Justin Raimondo from AntiWar.com put it this way…

“They – the Lobby – have now been forced out in the open. “A lobby,” says Steve Rosen, the ringleader of the “get Freeman” lynch mob, “is like a night flower: it thrives in the dark and dies in the sun.”

Only now, after the horrendous stories of what happened in Gaza have been widely reported on the internet and after the international criminal court has announced that they are considering bringing war crimes charges against Israel, the AIPAC flower has the distinct smell of desperation about it.

You want an answer to that question? If you really want an answer to that question, publicly request Israel give the international press corp complete and unfettered access to Gaza. Let the American public see for themselves on the six o’clock nightly news just what has happened there with munitions supplied by the United states; by their own tax dollars. Let the American public see what 3 billion dollars a year in military aid does to the people trapped in the worlds largest open air prison… all for having the audacity of voting the wrong way.

Let the American public see Gaza without the filter of the compliant press (like your CNN, Mr. Fakaria) and then you will see what the American people really think about the influence of AIPAC on our legislators. Then Mr. Zakaria, you will be able to gather an honest answer from an informed public.

But my guess is, sir, that won’t be allowed on your agenda. Because AIPAC has an even greater influence than that they have with Rahm Israel Emanuel, or AIPAC member Dennis Ross…

What a question is this. You know the answer all to well sir.

Yes.

  1. Zakaria is part of that Lobby. He was cheerleading for the US to invade Iraq back in 2002 and 2003, so now he’s asking if the group he belongs to is too influential?

    The same Zakaria has been making statements that he’s impressed with Oboma’s foreign policy moves??? Like throwing Chas Freeman to the wolves?

    Zakaria is just another smooth taking Harvard intellectual.
    His smooth demeanor is useful to calm the simmering masses when they start asking too many questions about why we started that war and who benefits.

    Here in the Midwest, the sun is starting to come up, so I gues it’s time for the LOBBY to seek the comfort of darkness.

    Time to sharpen those wooden stakes!

    P.S. Zakaria interviewed Pak general Hamid Gul who said 9/11 was an inside job. Zakaria went apeshit.

    Zakaria is also a member of the CFR.

  2. Well then Greg, might this tactic of his seeking oppinions possibly be some sort of fishing expidition? Might he, on behalf of AIPAC, be seeking the most radical vewpoints against AIPAC? For some purpose? An eneamy identification tactic? You know, something like that?

  3. Yeah, Scott, that is probably what they are doing. creating their ‘lists’.

  4. Zakaria is putting on a pretense of being a “journalist” when he’s nothing more than a “pressitute” for the MIC and Wall Street.

    I sent in an email to this two-legged copperhead, letting him know that if he actually did investigate the LOBBY, he’d be off the air within a week.

    He needs to be tarred and feathered and run out of town like a number of other snake oil salesman on CNN and FOX that devote endless amount of time to the latest Hollywood bimbo story or some sports star shooting up steriods or the latest child kidnapping.

    Don’t get me wrong, a child kidnapping is a terrible event, but there’s something like 15,000 kids kidnapped or “lost” in the USA each year, so why devote so many hours to the Jon Benet’s or Katelee’s?

    Junk food for the mind with predictable results.
