The Israel Lobby’s $50M Campaign Against The Iran Nuclear Deal (ARTICLE)

“The next 60 days offer a fateful window through which Congress will review the Iran nuclear deal announced last week to great fanfare by the P5+1 powers and their Iranian counterparts.

At the end of this period, both the House and Senate will vote on the agreement. Though the GOP has a majority in the latter body, it’s by no means a given that the vote will go against the deal. The Los Angeles Times reports there may be a few Republican senators who can be swayed if public opinion is running in favor.

To that end, the various groups within the Israel lobby have announced a massive PR campaign seeking to move both public opinion and the votes of individual senators against the deal. Last week, The New York Times reported that the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), a pro-Israel lobby, has created a stand-alone group, Citizens for a Nuclear Free Iran, for this purpose. It plans to spend $20-40 million on the effort.”

    Kind of like ancient Egypt or turn of the 20th century Germany all over again. They create political turmoil and try to seize opportunities.

    A global movement should be started. Call it ‘Let’s Swing’. Babe Ruth could do wonders with just one baseball bat!.
