Israel Lobby Pushing US To War With Iran | Veterans Today
The most powerful part of the overly powerful Israel lobby, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, is increasing its warmongering efforts as it attempts to push the US into a war against Iran for Israel’s benefit. Currently they are working hard to pressure politicians from both parties to torpedo the nuclear agreement being worked on between the US and five other nations with Iran. The top financial donors to AIPAC and to other Israel-over-all organizations are forming their own 501(c)(4) organization to gather the funds to purchase advertising on television, radio and the Internet geared towards putting pressure on politicians to stop the agreement with Iran. The ads will be focused on areas with large Jewish populations.
One such 501(c)(4) organization that is already created and working to promote another US war for Israel’s benefit is deceptively named Secure America Now. They’re running a 30 second video spot which features a woman college student named Maria. Allegedly her father was killed in Iraq in 2005 by an IED supplied by Iran. She says that after Iran supplied IEDs to Iraq that killed her father, now Obama wants to let Iran acquire nuclear weapons. Of course this is pure nonsense as Iran is not building nuclear weapons and there is no evidence to show that they are. The only nation in the Middle East that has very real nuclear WMD is the Jewish state of Israel.
If it is true that her father was killed fighting in Iraq, she should show respect to him and to all the other US military people who died or were wounded fighting in Iraq. To do this the truth is needed. She should be warning Americans about how the Israel lobby and the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament based neoconservative movement pressured US politicians from both parties to start the unnecessary war in Iraq for the sole benefit of Israel (and, of course, the benefit of the US political whores who profit from pleasing the Israel lobby). She should be warning Americans that the same powers that be are NOW trying to do the same thing they did against Iraq against Iran. If she did this it would help Americans to torpedo the Israeli warmongers and prevent more people being killed in another war for Israel.
Zionist and Jewish organizations have a history of pushing the US into war for their own selfish interests. A great example of this is World War I. The US had absolutely no reason to become involved in the conflict raging in Europe, just as the US had absolutely no reason to start a war in Iraq and has absolutely no reason to start a war against Iran. In all three cases the driving force was and is Israel and Zionists. To get the US into the First World War a key instrument used was the Balfour Declaration which was crafted by Lord Balfour and Lord Rothschild. As pointed out in the amazing and very important book by Alison Weir, Against Our Better Judgment, even the Jewish US Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis was involved in this anti-American and pro-Israel document!
Daniel Schwartz is a Jewish associate professor of history and director of the Program in Judaic Studies at George Washington University. Here is a question regarding Jews and the Balfour Declaration and the answer given by Schwartz:
Did the Balfour Declaration find its origins in the politics of the war?
The British leaders believe that if they commit themselves to the Zionist movement – that support will mobilize world Jewish opinion behind the Allied cause and this will help to draw the United States into the war. Unlike World War II, in World War I Jewish opinion was divided. There were many Jews, in particular East European Jewish immigrants — whether in the United States or even in Britain itself — who were very reluctant to support the Allied cause. “Why should we be going to war to help the Czar?” The British — believing the stereotype of international Jewish power — perceive the Jews to have an influence that they don’t really have. It is true that the Balfour Declaration did help to swing Jewish opinion more toward the side of the Allies — at least those Jews who didn’t live in Germany or the Austrian Empire, especially after Russia leaves the war.
It’s disingenuous at best for Schwartz to say “believing the stereotype of international Jewish power – perceive the Jews to have an influence that they don’t really have.” The success of the Balfour Declaration proves Schwartz wrong in this false statement. If they didn’t have the power, the US never would have gone to war in World War One. A major tool they use to get what they want to the detriment of everyone else is their control of the media. This media control is an ace in the hole for the Israel lobby and gives them much more leverage over US politicians from both parties than cash alone does.
The same twisted mind-set is at work right now in an effort to get the US into yet another war for Israel’s benefit. To protect ourselves from their twisted war creating mind-set we need to use our gift from God of innate reason and apply it to absolutely every aspect of our lives, including religion. We must use our God-given reason to break free of Judeo-Christianity and all of the Abrahamic “revealed”/hearsay religions. We must realize the Bible was written, not by God, but by the ancient Jews who placed themselves and their people “above all people that are upon the face of the earth” (Deuteronomy 7:6) and who loaded it with Jewish superiority for their own benefit. We must take the advice of the American founder and Deist Thomas Paine who wrote in The Age of Reason, The Complete Edition that we need a revolution in religion based on our innate God-given reason and Deism. This will eventually put an end to Israel over all and to all religious fear-based superstition and wars.

In 1993 he founded the World Union of Deists, and in 1996 he launched the first website devoted to Deism. He is the author of God Gave Us Reason, Not Religion, Deism: A Revolution in Religion, A Revolution in You and An Answer to C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity. He has also written the introduction to Thomas Paine’s The Age of Reason, The Complete Edition and Principles of Nature by Elihu Palmer.
