Israeli junkets and talk of a "Final Solution"

Israel lobbies big-time through AIPAC to buy the fealty of U.S Representatives who are supposed to represent us, but in fact represent only their own interests as they seek to assure an uninterrupted flow of campaign contributions from wealthy San Diegans like Irwin Jacobs and others who have lifetime commitments to Israel, right or wrong. The AIPAC arrangement feels close to corrupt. It was outrageous for Prime Minister Netanyahu to accept the outrageous invitation of the Republican-majority Congress to speak here weeks before the Israeli election; it was beyond the pale for Netanyahu to opine against ongoing American-Iranian policy negotiations while he was on American soil. it was disgraceful for these lily-livered Democrats to send their chiefs of staff on such a loaded junket just before Netanyahu showed up here; it is disgusting that these American staffers to Democrats met over there with contemptuous right-wing Israeli critics of the President of the United States. If there is a nuclear-armed regional threat in that part of the world these days, it is militant and desperate tiny Israel that has long had nuclear weapons and has re-elected a Prime Minister who's finally, openly, ruled out any hope for creating a Palestinian state. Where once the United States was rightly a generous and faithful friend to the State of Israel, now that alliance seems expensive, dangerous and a huge liability for all Americans. I am afraid to imagine where this may end.
