History of the US-Israel Relationship, Part I

By: My Catbird Seat

How the "Special Relationship" was created

While many people are led to believe that US support for Israel is
driven by the American establishment and U.S. national interests, the
facts don’t support this theory. The reality is that for decades U.S.
experts opposed Israel and its founding movement. They were simply
outmaneuvered and eventually replaced.­

Like many American policies, U.S. Middle East policies are driven
by a special interest lobby. However, the Israel Lobby, as it is called
today in the U.S.[1], consists of vastly more than what most people
envision in the word “lobby.”

As this article will demonstrate, it is considerably more powerful
and pervasive than other lobbies. Components of it, both individuals and
groups, have worked underground, secretly and even illegally throughout
its history, as documented by scholars and participants.

has promoted policies that have exposed Americans to growing danger,
and then exaggerated this danger (while disguising its cause), fueling
recent actions that dismember some of our nation’s most fundamental
freedoms and cherished principles.

    That analysis ignores this imperative:

    "I will bless them

    Who bless thee,

    And anyone who curseth thee

    I will curse."

    Genesis 12:3. Look it up.

    you ignore the problem that those words were written by someone or a few to inspire fear into those who would oppose them.
    i don't think a supreme being would be happy with such a racist state as israel.and such a murderous one either.
  • Temlako... irish 2012/06/30 19:16:01
    You have no proof for either of those two descriptions.

    If anyone over there is guilty of racism and racially motivated murder, it's the Arabs.
  • irish Temlako... 2012/06/30 23:24:35
    yes we do. israel is a self described "jewish state only". they are busy attacking and deporting the sudanese. they have always been racist. as for murder,they have been at it for over 60 yrs. the ethnic  cleansing of palestine

    read some facts. even david green(ben gurion) admitted it. and look at when terrorism arrived in the middle east ,with israel. bombing of  king david  hotel facts david greenben gurion admitted terrorism arrived middle east israel
  • Temlako... irish 2012/06/30 23:37:08
    And who started it? Arabs.

    Not only a powerful lobby, also a deeply disturbing practice of using false flag terrorist attacks against 'allies' US and UK trying to blame and inflame hate against Muslims.

    exactly. and still the sheeple ignore it.
  • Defendn... irish 2012/06/29 12:47:29
    I guess most people simply don't know, are too passively enslaved to MSM, feel powerless or simply don't have time to do their own research.

    Good at least the MSM addiction seems to dwindle.
  • irish Defendn... 2012/06/29 12:52:44
    passive is right. have you been to the polls about obamacare? the ones in favor are as clueless about this power grab as they are about everything that made america what it was.
  • Defendn... irish 2012/06/29 13:06:30
    I found many on the 'right' vowing to vote Romney rather clueless too. I found the party on the 'left' not very enthusiastic, I think some are secretly more worried than they are willing to admit. How many times do you need to be lied to, before you stop believing the person (either Romney or Obama)?

  • irish Defendn... 2012/06/29 13:07:59
    i agree. those hopping around in glee may be plants . good video.
    like this??

    hopping glee plants video
  • Defendn... irish 2012/06/29 13:42:51 (edited)
    Ironically the video is from the Obama Biden 2012 truth (sic) campaign.

    I don't think many people who are not in the know already will get the picture.

    Think it's time to try and get more democratically leaning independents open to the message. I don't know how to reach so called conservatives ranting against Obamacare vowing to vote for Romney the architect of Obamacare (it's beyond me).

    Do you think people will get this one?
    fight for israel
  • irish Defendn... 2012/06/29 14:19:47
    nope,they will call us anti 's! missing entirely the picture of who really runs this country.
  • Defendn... irish 2012/06/29 14:46:42
    See you're point. I found the Zionist yelling 'Forward' suitable ;-)

    israel lobby

    If people would take the time to watch this, many more eyes would open to real controllers of America's wars, and economic depression..
  • irish Defendn... 2012/06/30 12:03:28
    but they won't. they don't like to think. they want to be led by the nose. and then there is that absurd religious belief of the chosenites that christians even adopt.what don't they get that the old covenant was broken and a new one made? the chosenites were put out of the picture. and yet they basically worship them. sickening.
  • Defendn... irish 2012/06/30 12:24:05
    Yes. Their Jesus who was on to and stood up against the dirty money practices of Jews at the temple, was murdered by these corrupt Jew powers who wanted to continue their dirty money scams.

    Now so called Christian Americans bow for the corrupt money powers, have their possessions foreclosed by Goldman Suks cs and their sons killed on the battlefield in wars manipulated for Israel and Wall Street war profiteering (getting us all in excessive debt, paying perpetual interest to bankers who did nothing but create computer debtmoney out of thin air and bribing our politicians for bankrupting wars).

    Blood money irony. Christians have forgotten about 'usury'

    Jesus at the temple
    jesus temple money

  • irish Defendn... 2012/06/30 12:28:27
    and therein lies the hatred of islam. islam does not allow usury!
  • Defendn... irish 2012/06/30 12:36:33
    Exactly! Muslims are still more pure in their believes against usury and exploitation of others via money or materialism.
  • irish Defendn... 2012/06/30 12:44:17
    exactly. and its why they are the chosen boogeyman. besides the fact that most people understand very little about islam ,or want to. the hysteria over sharia law is still popping up.
    what did you think of those hate polls that were u[p when "american muslim" was on tv?
  • Defendn... irish 2012/06/30 12:51:46
    haven't seen "american muslim", I find the Muslim hate polls disgusting because they are so detached from the truth or any personal understanding about Islam, just MSM fed propaganda.

    Most disgusting is perhaps good people are controlled by bad forces to help them do terrible things.
  • irish Defendn... 2012/06/30 13:07:14
    i agree. i watched the entire series. what was it about? regular people dealing with hate and prejudice in america. its the american way.
    exactly,the msm feeds and promotes hate and people don't get it. the bad forces have been around a long time. what pisses me off is that people don't use common sense and reasoning to see what they are being told to think about.
  • Defendn... irish 2012/06/30 13:17:53
    I saw this one..
  • irish Defendn... 2012/06/30 13:21:59
    people don't get that these people are humans too.

    More Christians need to get out of the church and get back into the Bible. If they would, they would see that what our promotion of the "state" of Israel has nothing, whatsoever, to do with God's will.

    well said.
