WASHINGTON, D.C.-In a country often referred to as the “Land of opportunity,” the most recent race for the U.S. Presidency has turned into the prime chance for Israel to stake their claim on this great land by backing the presidential candidate who surrenders to their demands in order to be named the next president of the United States.
America’s leading pro-Israel lobby, American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), “…works with both Democratic and Republican political leaders to enact public policy that strengthens the vital U.S.-Israel relationship,” the organization’s website states.
Any U.S. relationship with Israel, the Zionist capitol of the world, reaps no benefit for the American people. Americans want change and the slogans for Democratic and Republican presidential nominees promise this change, but what changes can be made if promises are made to the government of a country which seeks only to annihilate all other countries who refuse to surrender their lands?
Senator John McCain, a former POW, and Senator Barack Obama, the first African American presidential nominee, are working diligently in their respective campaigns to become leader of the “free world.”
McCain openly accepts donations from lobbyists such as AIPAC to fund his campaign and in return agrees to terms and stipulations that contradict his promise of “Leadership you can believe in!” At the 2008 AIPAC Policy Conference, McCain said, “…I welcome you to Washington and your money and it’s–it’s a pleasure as always to be in the company of the men and women of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.”
McCain talks to his fellow Americans of his desire to serve them, if elected president while making the policies of AIPAC American policies. “The threats to Israel’s security are large and growing and America’s commitment must grow as well. I strongly support the increase in military aid to Israel scheduled to begin in October. I am committed to making certain, Israel maintains its qualitative military edge.
“Israel’s enemies are too numerous, its margin of error too small, and our shared interests and values too great for us to follow any other policy,” he said in his speech at the conference.
In earlier speeches McCain said that the U.S. must remain in Iraq and Afghanistan until victory has been declared. As of today, no such victory has occurred. Is this the start of another war?
The U.S. military is stretched beyond capacity in the current wars, but due to Israel’s demands military support, McCain is willing to risk more lives – the lives of those in the military as well as those civilians who expect their military to be available to protect their own homeland.
For those who find his alliance with Israel deplorable, McCain says, ‘too bad.’
“If there are ties between America and Israel that critics of our alliance have never understood, perhaps that’s because they do not fully understand the love of liberty and the pursuit of justice. But they should know –they should know those ties cannot be broken.
“We were brought together by shared ideals and by shared adversity; we have been comrades in struggle and trusted partners in the quest for peace. We are the most natural of allies and like Israel itself–that alliance is forever,” he said.
McCain is not alone in making contradictory statements to the masses.
Barack Obama, who is known for statements about denying donations from lobbyists because they do not care about the American people, is also making promises to Israel.
While there does not appear to be any record of him accepting donations from AIPAC, he has allied the organization friends to his presidential campaign. “Our alliance is based on shared interests and shared values,” Obama said at the 2008 AIPAC Conference.
Obama, while admired by many around the world, is still a politician who will make necessary deals to secure his election.
Meeting behind closed doors with Senator Hillary Clinton, a known Zionist supporter, shortly after his nomination, assuredly benefited himself, as well as Clinton and Israel. Then there was the pressure from the media and Clinton supporters to take Hillary Clinton as his running mate or risk losing her supporters. Perhaps he really does want to change Washington, but in a political world governed by the Zionists, change comes at a hefty price.
“As President I will implement a memorandum of understanding that provides $30 billion in assistance to Israel over the next decade, investments to Israel’s security that will not be tied to any other nation,” he said.
With the economy in such a disastrous state, education and its funding below average, and the military being stretched thin, how can such an expensive promise be made?
Like McCain, he is also making similar statements and promises to the Zionists. How can he make changes in politics, but make promises to Israel?
Israel’s list of demands involves the death and destruction of all Muslim countries, including Indonesia where Obama lived for some time, and Kenya, the home of his father.
Unfortunately, Muslim countries are listed as terrorist strong-holds making them targets of the Zionists. Islam is their greatest enemy.
Because they have presented Muslim countries as a threat, Obama has stated that, “Those who threaten Israel threaten us; Israel has always faced these threats on the front lines and I will bring to the White House an unshakable commitment to Israel’s security.”
One would think that Senator Barack Hussein Obama, son of a Kenyan Muslim, would refrain from making alliances with AIPAC especially when those who are targeted by them are his Muslim family.
While he has tried to discourage making his campaign an issue of race, he has definitely avoided the Muslim aspect of it as well.
Although he is not a Muslim, he is familiar with Islam and those who practice its way of life and for that reason alone making any pacts with the Zionists is an insult to his Muslim family.
Working with Israel is the same as signing their death warrants.
Barack Obama sealed the deal by reaffirming his commitment to Israel’s security and its New World Order saying, “Now is the time to stand by Israel as it writes the next chapter in its extraordinary journey. Now is the time to join together in the work of repairing this world and I’m looking forward to being a partner with AIPAC in making that happen.”
Regardless of which person is voted into office, the Zionists will see to it that their plan is implemented. The Democrats and Republicans will continue to argue over which candidate is most worthy of the job and will vote accordingly, but they fail to realize that there is a third party voting in this election-the Zionist Party. Their candidate wins every election.
