    Just a reminder for all the pearl-clutching Trumpkins here:

    (emphasis added)

    ďIím a negotiator like you folks were negotiators. Is there anyone in this room who doesnít negotiate deals? Probably more than any room Iíve ever spoken.Ē

    ďYouíre not gonna support me even though you know Iím the best thing that could ever happen to Israel. And Iíll be that And I know why youíre not going to support me. Youíre not going to support me because I donít want your money. Isnít it crazy? You want to control your own politician.Ē

    Dear Leader, ladies and gentleman.

    (emphasis added)

    IN 2005, Steven Rosen, then a senior official with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, sat down for dinner with journalist Jeffrey Goldberg, then of the New Yorker. “You see this napkin?” Rosen asked Goldberg. “In twenty-four hours, [AIPAC] could have the signatures of seventy senators on this napkin.”
    Rosen, after all, wasn’t the first AIPAC official to boast about the the raw power that “America’s bipartisan pro-Israel lobby” exercises in Washington D.C. Go back earlier, to 1992, when then AIPAC President David Steiner was caught on tape bragging that he had “cut a deal” with the George H. W. Bush White House to provide $3 billion in U.S. aid to Israel. Steiner also claimed to be “negotiating” with the incoming Clinton administration over the appointment of pro-Israeli cabinet members. AIPAC, he said, has “a dozen people in [the Clinton] campaign, in the headquarters… and they’re all going to get big jobs.”

    Go back further, to 1984, when Senator Charles Percy, a moderate Republican from Illinois, was defeated in his re-election campaign after he “incurred AIPAC”s wrath” by declining to sign onto an AIPAC-sponsored letter, and daring to refer to PLO leader Yasser Arafat as more “moderate” than other Palestinian resistance figures. AIPAC contributors raised more than a million dollars to help defeat Percy. As Tom Dine, then executive director of AIPAC, gloated in a speech shortly after the GOP senator’s defeat, “all the Jews, from coast to coast, gathered to oust Percy. And the American politicians— those who hold public positions now, and those who aspire — got the message.”
    And are we also expected to forget that Tom Friedman of the New York Times, a long-standing advocate for Israel in the American media, once described the standing ovations received by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, from members of Congress, as having been “bought and paid for by the Israel lobby”? Or that Goldberg, now editor-in-chief of The Atlantic and dubbed “the most influential journalist/blogger on matters related to Israel,” called AIPAC a “leviathan among lobbies, as influential in its sphere as the National Rifle Association and the American Association of Retired Persons are in theirs”? Or that J.J. Goldberg, former editor of the Jewish weekly newspaper, The Forward, said in 2002, in reference to AIPAC, “There is this image in Congress that you don’t cross these people or they take you down”?

    Are we supposed to dismiss Uri Avnery, the late Israeli peace activist and one-time member of the Zionist paramilitary, the Irgun, who once remarked that if AIPAC “were to table a resolution abolishing the Ten Commandments, 80 senators and 300 congressmen would sign it at once,” as a Jew-hater? Or label Jane Harman, the ex-congresswoman and devoted defender of Israel, who told CNN in 2013 that her former colleagues on Capitol Hill had struggled to back Barack Obama’s Iran nuclear diplomacy due to “big parts of the pro-Israel lobby in the United States being against it, the country of Israel being against it. That’s a stiff hill to climb,” an anti-Semite?
    However, it does act as a “force multiplier,” to quote the Jewish Telegraph Agency’s Andrew Silow-Carroll, and “its rhetorical support for a candidate is a signal to Jewish PACs and individual donors across the country to back his or her campaign.” As Tom Friedman explained to me in an interview in 2013: “Mehdi, if you and I were running from the same district, and I have AIPAC’s stamp of approval and you don’t, I will maybe have to make three phone calls… I’m exaggerating but I don’t have to make many phone calls to get all the money I need to run against you. You will have to make 50,000 phone calls.” (Is Friedman an anti-Semite too? Asking for a friend.)

    Quite the opposite. The facts speak for themselves. You are totally unaware. Not a news flash there.

    There is no way to bypass this.

    Did you read either of the articles posted in the first two posts on this page? Saying that AIPAC has influence over politicians in Washington isn't anti-Semitic.

    Never ceases to amaze me that hyper-conservatives are in bed with Jews, people who unabashedly deny Jesus.

    eh, politicians do a lot of stuff because they are given money. i don't know if this is the case in this specific instance, but the fact that so many people jumped to the conclusion that the only reason she said it is cuz jews tells me more about them.

    if someone made the same comment about the nra or labor unions, it would be pretty uncontroversial.

    but go back to your outrage orgy.
