What's going on in our country? Have we replaced the Soviet Union as the ultimate hypocrisy in world affairs? What ever happened to being the beacon for freedom for all humanity?

George Bush and the Israeli lobby through AIPAC has forced all politicians to act against the American national interests and our position as a moral society and a beacon for freedom.

The Boston Globe Headline exposed what anyone with half a brain already knew:" TheBostonGlobe"
'Israel lobby' critique roils academe
Some assail paper by a Harvard dean
By Charles A. Radin, Globe Staff | March 29, 2006
A paper co-written by the academic dean of Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government is setting off a firestorm in academic and political circles because of its assertions that US foreign policy is dominated by an ''Israel lobby" that ignores US national interest and makes the United States a target of Muslim terrorists.

And why would the American Israeli supporters along with the Christian Right support an Apartheid State in Israel or condone the confiscation of Arab Lands where we as a people always condemned these policies before?

Simple corruption of our entire political system and I hope all patriotic Americans wake up and save our nation.
.

Heights.

other U.S. weapons given to Israel for defensive purposes only.

1979: Israel frustrates U.S.-sponsored Camp David Accords by building new

shipments of cluster bomb shells to Israel.

September 1982: Abetted by Israeli forces under the control of Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon, Lebanese militiamen massacre hundreds of
Palestinians in Beirut's Sabra and Shatila refugee camps. President Reagan

immediate withdrawal from Beirut.

September 1982: Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin rejects President
Reagan's Peace Plan for the occupied territories.

January-March 1983: Israeli army "harasses" U.S. Marines in Lebanon.
Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger confirms Marine commandant's report
that "Israeli troops are deliberately threatening the lives of American
military personnel . . . replete with verbal degradation of the officers,
their uniforms and country."

March 1985: Israeli lobby in Washington pressures the U.S. Congress to turn
down a $1.6 billion arms sale to Jordan, costing the U.S. thousands of
jobs, quite apart from the financial loss to American industry. Jordan
gives the contract to Russia. A frustrated King Hussein complains: "The
U.S. is not free to move except within the limits of what AIPAC [the
Israeli lobby], the Zionists and the State of Israel determine for it."

October 1985: Israeli lobby blocks $4 billion aircraft sale to Saudi
Arabia. The sale, strongly backed by the Reagan administration, costs the
U.S. over 350,000 jobs, with steep financial losses to American industry.
Saudi Arabia awards contract to England.

November 1985: Jonathan Jay Pollard, an American recruited by Israel, is
arrested for passing highly classified intelligence to Israel. U.S.
officials call the operation but "one link in an organized and
well-financed Israeli espionage ring operating within the United States."
State Department contacts reveal that top Israeli defense officials "traded
stolen U.S. intelligence documents to Soviet military intelligence agents
in return for assurances of greater emigration of Soviet Jews."

December 1985: U.S. Customs in three states raid factories suspected of
illegally selling electroplating technology to Israel. Richard Smyth, a
NATO consultant and former U.S. exporter, is indicted on charges of
illegally exporting to Israel 800 krytron devices for triggering nuclear
explosions.

April 1986: U.S. authorities arrest 17 persons, including a retired Israeli
General, Avraham Bar-Am, for plotting to sell more than $2 billion of
advanced U.S. weaponry to Iran (much of it already in Israel). General Bar-
Am, claiming to have had Israeli Government approval, threatens to name
names at the highest levels. U.S. Attorney General of New York calls the
plot "mind-boggling in scope."

July 1986: Assistant Secretary of State Richard Murphy informs the Israeli
ambassador that a U.S. investigation is under way of eight Israeli
representatives in the U.S. accused of plotting the illegal export of
technology used in making cluster bombs. Indictments against the eight are
later dropped in exchange for an Israeli promise to cooperate in the case.

January 1987: Israeli Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin visits South Africa to
discuss joint nuclear weapons testing. Israel admits that, in violation of
a U.S. Senate anti-apartheid bill, it has arms sales contracts with South
Africa worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Rep. John Conyers calls for
Congressional hearings on Israel-South Africa nuclear testing.

November 1987: The Iran-Contra scandal reveals that it was Israel that had
first proposed the trade to Iran of U.S. arms for hostages. The scandal
becomes the subject of the Tower Commission Report, Senate and House
investigations, and the Walsh criminal prosecution inquiries.

April 1988: Testifying before U.S. Subcommittee on Narcotics, Terrorism and
International Operations, Jose Blandon, a former intelligence aide to
Panama's General Noriega, reveals that Israel used $20 million of U.S. aid
to ship arms via Panama to Nicaraguan Contras. The empty planes then
smuggled cocaine via Panama into the United States. Pilot tells ABC
reporter Richard Threlkeld that Israel was his primary employer. The
arms-for- drugs network is said to be led by Mike Harari, Noriega's close
aide and bodyguard, who was also a high officer in the Israeli secret
services and chief coordinator of Israel's military and commercial business
in Panama.

June 1988: Mubarak Awad, a Palestinian-American advocate of nonviolence, is
deported by Israel. The White House denounces the action, saying, "We think
it is unjustifiable to deny Mr. Awad the right to stay and live in
Jerusalem, where he was born."

June 1988: Amnesty International accuses Israel of throwing deadly, U.S.-
made gas canisters inside hospitals, mosques, and private homes. The
Pennsylvania manufacturer, a major defense corporation, suspends future
shipments of tear gas to Israel.

November 1989: According to the Israeli paper Ma'ariv, U.S. officials claim
Israel Aircraft Industries was involved in attempts to smuggle U.S. missile
navigation equipment to South Africa in violation of U.S. law.

December 1989: While the U.S. was imposing economic sanctions on Iran,
Israel purchased $36 million of Iranian oil in order to encourage Iran to
help free three Israeli hostages in Lebanon.

March 1990: Israel requests more than $1 billion in loans, gifts, and
donations from American Jews and U.S. government to pay for resettling
Soviet Jews in occupied territories. President Bush responds, "My position
is that the foreign policy of the U.S. says we do not believe there should
be new settlements in the West Bank or East Jerusalem."

June 1990: Officials in the Bush administration and in Congress say that
Israel has emerged as leading supplier of advanced military technology to
China, despite U.S.'s expressed opposition to Israeli-Chinese military
cooperation.

September 1990: Israeli Foreign Minister David Levy asks the Bush
administration to forgive Israel's $4.5 billion military debt and
dramatically increase military aid. Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Arens
expresses concern over expected $20 billion in U.S. arms sales to Saudi
Arabia and asks for an additional $1 billion in military aid to Israel.
Facing rising congressional opposition, White House backs off from plan to
sell Saudi Arabia over $20 billion in military hardware. Bush
administration promises to deliver additional F-15 fighters and Patriot
missiles to Israel, but defers action on Israel's request for more than $1
billion in new military aid. Arens questions U.S.'s commitment to maintain
Israel's military advantage in the Middle East.

October 1990: "Aliya cabinet" chair Ariel Sharon encourages increase in
settlement of Soviet Jews in East Jerusalem, despite his government's
assurances to the U.S. that it would not do so. Bush sends personal letter
to Prime Minister Shamir urging Israel not to pursue East Jerusalem
housing. Shamir rejects appeal.

November 1990: In his new autobiography, former President Reagan says
Israel was the instigator and prime mover in the Iran-Contra affair and that

then-Prime Minister Shimon Peres "was behind the proposal."

January 1991: White House criticizes Israeli ambassador Zalman Shoval for
complaining that U.S. had not moved forward on $400 million in loan
guarantees and that Israel "had not received one cent in aid" from allies

"outrageous and outside the bounds of acceptable behavior."

February 1991: Hours after long-disputed $400 million loan guarantees to
Israel are approved, Israeli officials say the amount is grossly
insufficient. Next day, Israel formally requests $1 billion in emergency
military assistance to cover costs stemming from the Gulf War.

March 1991: Israeli government rejects President Bush's call for solution
to Arab-Israeli conflict that includes trading land for peace. In a report
to Congress, U.S. State Department says Soviet Jewish immigrants are
settling in the occupied territories at a higher rate than the Israeli
government claims. During tour of West Bank settlements, Housing Minister
Sharon says construction of 13,000 housing units in occupied territories
has been approved for next two years. Plans contradict statement by Prime
Minister Shamir, who told President Bush that the Israeli government had
not approved such plans.

April 1991: Prime Minister Shamir and several members of his cabinet reject
U.S. Secretary of State Baker's suggestion that Israel curtail expansion of
Jewish settlements in the occupied territories as gesture for peace. U.S.
calls new Jewish settlement of Revava "an obstacle" to peace and questions
Israel's timing, with Secretary Baker due to arrive in Israel in two days.
Hours before Baker arrives, eight Israeli families complete move to new
settlement of Talmon Bet. U.S. ambassador to Israel William Brown files an
official protest with the Israeli government about establishment and/or
expansion of settlements in the West Bank. Housing Minister Sharon says
Israel has no intention of meeting U.S. demands to slow or stop
settlements. Secretary Baker, in a news conference before leaving Israel,
says Israel failed to give responses he needed to put together a peace
conference.

May 1991: Israeli ambassador to U.S. Zalman Shoval says his country will

settlement of Mevo Dotan in the West Bank one day after President Bush
describes Israeli settlements as "counterproductive."

September 1991: President Bush asks Congress to delay considering Israeli
loan guarantee request for 120 days. Ignoring pleas of U.S. administration,
Israel formally submits its request. Prime Minister Shamir says U.S. has a
"moral obligation" to provide Israel with loan guarantees, and that Israel
would continue to build settlements in the occupied territories.

October 1991: The Washington Post reports that President Bush waived
U.S.-mandated sanctions against Israel after U.S. intelligence determined
that Israel had exported missile components to South Africa.

inaugurates Qela', a new settlement in the Golan Heights. Secretary of
State Baker calls the action "provocative."

to question former General Rami Dotan, who is at center of arms procurement
scandal involving U.S. contractors.

July 1992: General Electric Company pleads guilty to fraud and corrupt
business practices in connection with its sale of military jet engines to
Israel. A GE manager had conspired with Israeli Gen. Rami Dotan to divert
$27 million in U.S. military aid with fraudulent vouchers. U.S. Justice and
Defense Departments do not believe that Dotan was acting in his own
interest, implying that the government of Israel may be implicated in the
fraud, which would constitute a default on Israel's aid agreements with the
U.S.

June 1993: U.S. House of Representatives passes bill authorizing $80

billion in U.S. loan guarantees to Israel and against evidence from Israeli

acknowledgement that "Israel is generally regarded as having some kind of

Israel to pay reparations. Resolution is vetoed by the United States.

CIA report alleging Israel has given China U.S. military avionics,

working on a U.S.-financed project to renovate the town's main street.

Consulate intervened. U.S. State Department calls the incident "simply
unacceptable."

September 1997: Secretary of State Albright says Israel's decision to

recognizes Pollard as its agent in hopes of negotiating his release.

June 1998: Secretary of State Albright phones Prime Minister Netanyahu to

airliner that crashed in Amsterdam in 1992 was not carrying "gifts and

Minister Sharon vows to continue expanding the settlements.

May 2001: U.S. is voted off the United Nations Commission on Human Rights
for the first time since the committee's establishment in 1947. The
Financial Times of London suggests that Washington, by vetoing U.N.
resolutions alleging Israeli human rights abuses, showed its inability to
work impartially in the area of human rights. Secretary of State Colin
Powell suggests the vote was because "we left a little blood on the floor"
in votes involving the Palestinians.
