Along with Neocons, the little known AIPAC lobby has been a major contributor for unecessary wars in the Middle East.

Harvard Professor Stephen Walt and Chicago University professor John Mearsheimer (both banned by the mainstream media) talk about AIPAC at MIT. http://mitworld.mit.edu/video/488

AIPAC should be forced to register as foreign agents.

Wish I had a trust fund, I'd be a full time activist too. (Incidentally one of the signs of COINTELPRO agents is no visible means of support - so it's worth paying attention to.)

Ten reasons why AIPAC is so dangerous, by Medea Benjamin:

  1. AIPAC is lobbying Congress to promote a military confrontation with Iran.

  2. AIPAC promotes Israeli policies that are in direct opposition to international law.

  3. AIPAC's call for unconditional support for the Israeli government threatens our national security.

  4. AIPAC undermines American support for democracy movements in the Arab world.

  5. AIPAC makes the U.S. a pariah at the UN.

  6. AIPAC attacks politicians who question unconditional support of Israel.

  7. AIPAC attempts to silence all criticism of Israel by labeling critics as "anti-Semitic," "de-legitimizers" or "self-hating Jews."

  8. AIPAC feeds U.S. government officials a distorted view of the Israel/Palestine conflict.

  9. AIPAC lobbies for billions of U.S. taxdollars to go to Israel instead of rebuilding America.

  10. Money to Israel takes funds from world’s poor.

I would change item 8 to: AIPAC feeds U.S. government officials and the general public a distorted view of the Israel/Palestine conflict
