Meddling in Elections, by Mazin Qumsiyeh

"For many years I have felt that the situation in the Middle East was verynearly hopeless.  The fundamental problem for us is that we have lost ourfreedom of action in the Middle East and are committed to policies thatpromote neither our own national interest nor the cause of peace.  AIPAC(the American-Israeli Public Affairs Committee) and its alliedorganizations have effective working control of the electoral process.They can elect or defeat nearly any congressman or senator that they wish,with their money and coordinated organization" Senator William FulbrightJust so that we do not forget who really meddles in US elections and USpolitics all the timeAIPAC role in US elections is not the only group though it is the most visible that influencesUS elections to serve Israeli (not American interests). Here is a partiallisting have to remember that it was Israel which pushed for the war on Iraq anddamaged US Politicians who opposed the war (e.g. the Israel lobby boasts ofits influence to get rid of US congress people like Paul Findley andCynthia McKinney). See look at The Israel Lobby by John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt then there are the billionaire Zionists like Sheldon Adelson who allcontending republicans for president court who can forget that a Jewish lawyer by the name of Harry Katz talked tohead of AIPAC in 1991 and that the head of AIPAC boasted about theiurnegotiations” with Bill Clinton for support but only if the Zionists getkey cabinet positions (secretary of state and as his national securityadviser) can we forget that Prime Minister Netanyahu discarded protocol, snubbedPresident Obama and addressed AIPAC’s US Congress in March 2015 interferingdirectly in US Policy that was interested in best deal for the US (withIran). Thankfully, they did not succeed then to change Obama’s discourse sothey now ensured to have a successor who will annul the deal last week, an Israeli diplomat was caught on tape boasting aboutmeddling in British elections and politics more on politics, elections etc, see this chapter from my book “Sharingthe Land of Canaan” this is only the tip of the iceberg. So please share these links toshow who really meddles in democratic elections.
