Treason by Members of the United States Congress

It must have been realised that the letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, signed by nearly 300 members of the U.S. Congress, affirming their commitment to Israel, would be widely publicised and fall into the hands of that illegal Apartheid State, so the writing and signing of that letter should be considered an act of treason.1

The letter has totally undermined the power of the President of the United States by virtually telling Israel: “It does not matter what you do to the Palestinians, how many illegal structures you build on the territory you stole from them; how you behave towards the Lebanese, or what you have in mind for Iran, we, the signatories on this letter are with you, all the way.”

I am not a citizen of the United States, I am a citizen of a world that is being ruined by Zionism and its practitioners’ thirst for power and greed for land that does not rightly belong to them. Having goaded the United States to attack Iraq, it is now attempting to draw it into a pre-emptive attack on Iran, while continuing to lie about the reason. The Iranian president did not threaten to “Wipe Israel off the map”. Juan Cole, a professor of Middle Eastern studies at University of Michigan who reads Persian, has explained that President Ahmadinejad actually stated (quoting the late Ayatollah Khomeini): “The Imam said that this regime occupying Jerusalem (een rezhim-e ishghalgar-e qods) must [vanish from] from the page of time (bayad az safheh-ye ruzgar mahv shavad).”

What Israel and the perverse mainstream media has turned this into can be compared to a Farsi speaker saying: “Nothing lasts forever.” And having this turned into, by the likes of the BBC and CNN and the press: “I’m going to kill you.”

    I’d like to wish all the Jewish readers and posters here a happy and kosher Passover! (political differences notwithstanding…)

    Anthony Lawson is to be congratulated on a refreshingly honest article. When such truths are published in our “corporate” media, then we know that we are on our way to dealing with such treasonous behavior.

    Seems to me US, nato, needs israel. I do not think that nato land loves israel, There is no such thing as free lunch; especially not in interethnic or int’l relationship.
    We kno there is mossad; Which israel needs like a hole in its head. Why wld anyone have another spy agency in an occupied land in add’n to shin bet, army, commandos, and domestic spies?

    In those thar hills and valleys there are or may be lotsof goodies nato wants. Mossad is needed to cause unrest in asia, but in return they get paid.
    And mossad maybe needed for a century or so. So, israel get’s 99% support from congress for decades longer.
    But not forever!

    Benjamin Netanyahu (Bibi), the prime minister of the Zionist entity came to Washington this week not with a bowl in his hands and tail between his legs – but as a conquerer. He did conquered the Congress by a rousing reception and the blind support of nearly 300 members for Israel’s warmongering policies against Gaza, Lebanon, Syria and Islamic Iran. However, Bibi was humiliated by Barack Obama on Tuesday at the end of their “friendly” meeting at the White House. Obama refused to pose for a photo with his ‘honoable guest’ and did not invite him for the customary dinner at the White House either.

    “The Prime Minister leaves America disgraced, isolated and altogether weaker than when he came,” the Israeli daily Ha’aretz wrote.

    I think Obama’s health-care victory, which opposed by the Jewish Lobb lead by Israel’s unofficial representative at the Capitol Hill, Senator Lieberman, provided the necessary booster to Obama to give Bibi the dressing the later desrved. Bibi, his defence minister Barack Ehud and his ambassador Oren were all confident that Obama being traped in national problems – will sign in Israeli shopping list without much resistance. The list included the new arms for Tel Aviv, immediate US military attack on Iranian nuclear facilities and no criticism of new Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem.

    I’m no fan of Israel, and am definitely pissed at these members of Congress. I think it’s great that President Obama is not doing whatever Israel wants, despite our history of doing just that. It’s always confused me why we both provide Israel with all of its weapons and a massive amount of intelligence support, and yet they feel like they can order us around. Kudos to Obama. However, I do just wish to point out something: Iran isn’t any better. They’re a brutal Theocratic dictatorship. I DEFINITELY don’t want the US to get militarily involved there. However, I really don’t think the difference between “Israel needs to get wiped off the map” and “Israel needs to be wiped off the page of time” (i.e. no longer exist) is really all that important. The government of Iran is using their population’s hatred of Israel in order to further their own autocratic regimes and enrich themselves at the expense of the country. Nothing that these dictators say in response to Israel should be used by a newsletter describing itself as “in the struggle for peace and social justice”.

    VPK9: It seems you believe what the mainstream media tells you about Iran, if you still believe the hedging of the interpretation about “wiping off maps.” If you can’t be bothered to find out for youself, here is what I have added to the notes on the video under discussion:

    I am not a citizen of the United States, I am a citizen of a world that is being ruined by Zionism and its practitioners’ thirst for power and greed for land that does not rightly belong to them.

    It was Israeli MEMRI’s mistranslation of Dr. Ahmadinejad’s speech in which he was misquoted calling for “Wiped Israel Off the Map” – though the truth is that the only country which has been “Wiped Off the Map” in modern times – is the 5000-year-old Palestine, since 1948.

    The documentary film released by the Free Gaza Movement, shows the horrible effects of the Zionist entity’s 23-day-long genocidal attack on Gazzah Strip inhabited by 1.5 million Native Muslim and Christian Palestinians.

    This often quoted Zionist hoax could have made a lively addition to Melissa Katsoulis’ book Telling Tales: A History of Literary Hoaxes, in which she proves how many of the famous Holocaust narrative turned out be hoaxes.

    Yes, jon, have some tribal fun celebrating the genocide of the first-born in Egypt. A theological question. Why does the Judaic God require the genocide of animals, as well as human beings (if only the second division)? I assume you also partied hard at Purim, celebrating the genocide of 72,000 Persians by your Holy tribe. What asocial whirl! And what a relief to recall that both genocides did not occur in reality, but were simply concocted in the febrile imagination of people animated by a visceral hatred for those not of their ilk.
    Returning to more mundane affairs, these little missives from the Sabbat Goy stooges show one bitter reality. Either the Congress of the US, the proud, bombastic,bullying,intimidating, hectoring global bullyboy-in-chief, are the wholly earned property of their Zionist paymasters (hence accusations of treason or ‘dual loyalty’ are besides the point, as their prime loyalty is to their true masters in Holyland) or they are such moral imbeciles that child murder,assassination, terror, torture, dispossession and contempt for international law all have their absolute support. Or, probably, both grim realities are at play.Makes one kind of pessimistic regarding humanity’s future, really, but let’s be frank.Humanity has been heading for the abyss ever since the psychopathic fraction of humanity invented patriarchy,monotheism and capitalism, and we are just lucky enough to be living when these poisonous weeds finally bear their strange fruit. Pity the children, and the unborn.

    Mulga seems to think that if you repeat a lie again and again and again and again people will think that it’s true. Thus for the myth of “Jewish control” and “Jewish power”, and thus for the notion that Passover celebrates genocide. The story of Passover , of a people’s liberation from slavery, has been an inspiration for people striving for freedom for generations. Think of the old “Negro Spiritual” -”When Israel was in Egypt land/ let my people go/…

    You are a truly fabulous advertisement for Zionism, jon. Your ability to stand there and utter absolute untruths in the face of every known fact, is real chutzpah. Every one who reads the news, sees the absolute, near 100%, bias to Israel, the constant,foul, hatemongering against Islam and its followers, the incessant demands for the targeting of Iran and the near total censorship of the Palestinians (the Quislings the only exception), knows that you are simply lying when you deny Israeli, hence Jewish, control. Lying or stark, raving,mad. As to ‘Passover’,the sheer intensity of the racist arrogance that simply ignores the deliberate murder of the first-born in Egypt, but only concerns itself with the liberation of the precious, semi-divine, Chosen People, has its exact, narcissistic,mirror today in Gaza and the rest of Occupied Palestine.Jewish deaths are a big, big, deal.After all these are the most important people in the world and their killers ‘human dust’. But when the dead are Palestinian, ten or one hundred times as many, killed with sadism and in the most cowardly fashion,who gives a stuff? Certainly not jon and the other Zionist racists and supremacists. And through their money power, their media control and the readiness of vicious Western elites for their message of racist savagery, this foul doctrine of extreme racist contempt is becoming the prime operating principle of the West.Millions have been killed in pursuit of this evil doctrine, of which you are plainly an adherent, which makes you, in my opinion at least, a true Zionist.

    Without regard to the senseless argument above (between Mulga and Jon), I agree that the United States must stop pulling Israel’s strings and stop all government support. The Obama administration must take the position on Israel-Palestine which is the international consensus, namely a two-state solution and an autonomous nation for, by, and of the Palestinians. Since the Obama administration have not done that, the siege of Gaza and the repression in other areas has increased, as the apartheid wall is constructed and fortified around West Bank. If the United States were to completely thwart military or “humanitarian” aid to Israel, they would not be able to get away with the terrible things they are doing. What American politicians are supporting shows a fundamental disregard for the livelihood of the Palestinians and their survival under an inherently racist apartheid state. So it is a triple injustice, in global aid to other regimes under the Obama Administration, with aid increasing to Israel, Indonesia, and golpista Honduras, despite terrible human rights violations. This marks a terrible fate and an increase in atrocities by those US-backed regimes against Palestinians, Acehnese and Papuans, and Hondurans respectively.
