Grant Smith interviewed on AIPAC and Israeli influence over US foreign policy

Grant F. Smith, director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy in Washington, D.C., discusses the clarification of his August article “Does AIPAC Have Only Two Major Donors;” how AIPAC has changed its mandatory disclosures and tax returns to obfuscate the organization’s donors and methods; how the American Israel Education Foundation (AIPAC’s “travel agency”) shuttles members of Congress to and from Israel, even though lobby-sponsored trips are supposed to be banned; the organizations (not just AIPAC) that constitute what is known as the “Israel lobby;” and how the Foreign Agents Registration Act is selectively enforced based on political concerns, not objective criteria.

    the great enemy of truth is often not the lie–deliberate., contrived, dishonest –but the myth–persistent, persuavise, and unrealistic..

    Law applies to everyone except Israel and American dual citizen Israeli firsters.

    I`m glad that there are still some in the US asking questions, demanding answers, even if it is in a laid back fashion..

    American Israel Public Action Committee AIPAC, The Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations of America CPMAJO, Anti Difamation League ADL and dozens of more Jewish organizations need to be registered as “Foreign Agencies” working for a foreign power, Israel. And start paying taxes just like any one of us do.
    They all are registered as “Religious charitable Organizations” to avoid paying taxes. That is an insult to the American taxpayers.
