I have shown in numerous columns how the vast majority of U.S. government officials (along with the news media, financial institutions and entertainment industries) are bought and paid for by the ubiquitous juggernaut known as the Israeli lobby. Making sure Israel is not offended is the highest priority of virtually every elected official and bureaucrat in Washington, D.C.
Here’s a report written for Reason.com by Christian Britschgi that illustrates what I’m talking about:
Rep. Thomas Massie (R–Ky.) is stoking outrage for being the lone dissenting vote on a seemingly unobjectionable resolution condemning antisemitism. But the congressman’s opposition looks a lot more reasonable considering the resolution’s implications for free speech and internet regulation.
On Wednesday, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 1125, which broadly condemns antisemitic speech and violence while also endorsing calls for more online monitoring and censorship of antisemitic views and conspiracy theories.
It passed the House 420-1.
Another recent indicator of the absolute sway of Israeli power over America is Washington’s total lack of concern over the Israeli assassination of a Palestinian-American journalist a few days ago. Palestinian-American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh’s death should have marked a turning point for the United States government’s approach to the protection of journalists overseas – but when an allied nation [Israel] could be to blame, that becomes a problem.
Abu Akleh, a veteran journalist who worked for Al-Jazeera, was many things: she was a Christian and a brave reporter, but to most Palestinians she was a beloved household name who many grew up watching on TV. Her death came as a shock, not the least because eyewitness journalists said Israeli forces shot her in the head with live ammunition, during a raid on Jenin Camp in the West Bank.
But why should we expect the White House and Pentagon not to cover up the story of Israel’s murder of an American journalist when they covered up Israel’s murder of 34 U.S. Navy servicemen and even conspired to assist Israel in a coordinated attempt to sink the USS Liberty and kill all 294 Sailors and Marines on board.
Even more disturbing—in fact, it is downright unconscionable—we have come to expect America’s evangelical Christians not to care one whit that the journalist assassinated by the Israeli military was a sister in Christ.
