AIPAC video describes decades-long role in US laws against BDS

If Americans Knew – August 14, 2017

AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, is a powerful Washington DC lobbying organization. In this 2016 video, AIPAC describes how it has successfully worked to create U.S. laws against boycotting Israel over its multitudinous violations of human rights and international law.

The video doesn’t mention the anti-boycott legislation working its way through Congress right now (S.720 / H.R. 1697) that AIPAC helped draft: iak.salsalabs.org/antiboycottbill

Such anti-boycott laws hurt everyone.

They interfere with Americans’ fundamental consumer rights and freedom of speech, often harm American businesses and thereby the U.S. economy, and damage American international relations.

They prevent peace and perpetuate violence in the Middle East. By helping to sustain Israel’s enormous power over Palestinians, they cause Israeli leaders to believe two things: they can ignore international law, and they don’t need to negotiate with Palestinians in good faith to reach a fair and lasting peaceful resolution.

Ultimately, AIPAC’s actions have hurt Palestinians, Israelis, Americans, and the many of others impacted by the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and by Israel’s various wars against its neighbors.

  1. I guess that’s a part of the “Undue Influence” that President Eisenhower warned America particularly, and the World in general about, in his speech 0f 1961. That, along with the “Revolving Door” of Neo Cons and Zionists, none of whom are elected to government, but have ENORMOUS ‘influence’ in the Halls of Power. Add to that, the control of the Federal Reserve over the U.S. Currency, and, there you have the “bleeding obvious.
    The USA has been subjugated from within.

  2. AIPAC=foreign agent which should not be allowed any tax-exempt status and should be required to register as a foreign agent.
