The high degree of congressional support originally given Bush for the Iraqi war is evaporating. In other words, the very same congressional members who gave him the OK to eliminate Saddam, are now pointing fingers in ever larger numbers.
An argument between Ariel Sharon and Shimon Peres should be considered at this point.
On October 3, 2001, I.A.P. News reported that according to Israel Radio (in Hebrew) Kol Yisrael an acrimonious argument erupted during the Israeli cabinet weekly session last week between Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and his foreign Minister Shimon Peres. Peres warned Sharon that refusing to heed incessant American requests for a cease-fire with the Palestinians would endanger Israeli interests and "turn the US against us. "Sharon reportedly yelled at Peres, saying "don't worry about American pressure, we control America."I am not surprised at this. The unqualified support given Israel by the American federal government over the years clearly suggests that what Sharon supposedly said may indeed be true.
Way back in 1973, Senator Fullbright, Chair of Senate Foreign Relations Committee said on CBS' "Face the Nation":
"I am aware how almost impossible it is in this country to carry out a foreign policy [in the Middle East] not approved by the Jews..... terrific control the Jews have over the news media and the barrage the Jews have built up on congressmen .... I am very much concerned over the fact that the Jewish influence here is completely dominating the scene and making it almost impossible to get congress to do anything they don't approve of. The Israeli embassy is practically dictating to the congress through influential Jewish people in the country"Consider for a moment that this is actually true. Have the Jews have been using America and her resources for their own selfish benefit, and are now ready to serve up another American president as yet another scapegoat in their quest for Middle East dominance?
This long history of bipartisan Congressional support for Israel led former Secretary of State James Baker to call the Congress "The Little Knesset" after Israel's Knesset (parliament) in Jerusalem.
The American media's strong, biased and sympathetic portrayal of Israel while simultaneously denying any opposing view of Israel or human pictures and stories of the endless suffering of Palestinians may be the major reason why so many Americans are totally ignorant of the true situation in the Middle East, where over fifty years of war have settled nothing, except to make America the perceived mortal enemy of billions, due to our federal government's unrelenting and unquestioned support of an occupying force on foreign soil.
