Ep. 642 The Israel Lobby: What It Does and How It Works
18th April 2016
*** begin quote ***
We are supposed to believe that the network of organizations promoting a particular view of Israel and the U.S. relationship with that country doesn’t exist, and that anyone who says it does is a crank and a hater. Yet it’s precisely the network of organizations that would call such a person a hater that we’re talking about in the first pace. Grant Smith joins me for a rational discussion of this inexplicably sensitive issue.

Big Israel: How Israel’s Lobby Moves America
*** end quote ***
Basically, I don’t understand anyone who doesn’t have sympathy for Israel after the Shoah considering American actions before it (i.e., rejection of the Saint Louis; the anti-semitism of the US State Department; the failure of the executive to order the US Army Air Corp to stop the trains; the failure to inform the American people of what known facts when it was happening).
That being said, not all the Israeli and USA interests are ALWAYS aligned.
It was an eye opening podcast that exposes how much the Israeli Gooferment manipulates the USA Gooferment to its benefit.
Entirely too much Gooferment is my bottom line.
