BACKGROUND

SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP?:
“[S]aying that Israel and the US are united by a shared terrorist threat has the causal relationship backwards: the US has a terrorism problem in good part because it is so closely allied with Israel, not the other way around. Support for Israel is not the only source of anti-American terrorism, but it is an important one...[A]spects of Israeli democracy are at odds with core American values. Unlike the US, where people are supposed to enjoy equal rights irrespective of race, religion or ethnicity, Israel was explicitly founded as a Jewish state and citizenship is based on the principle of blood kinship. Given this, it is not surprising that its 1.3 million Arabs are treated as second-class citizens...” Walt and Mearsheimer, “The Israel Lobby,” The London Review of Books.

ETHNIC CLEANING, ISRAEL’S ORIGINAL SIN:
“The ethnic cleansing of Palestine must become rooted in our memory and consciousness as a crime against humanity... The perpetrators here are not obscure - they are a very specific group of people: the heroes of the Jewish war of independence, whose names will be quite familiar to most readers. The list begins with, indisputable leader of the Zionist movement, David Ben-Gurion, in whose private home all early and later chapters in the ethnic cleansing story were discussed and finalised.” Illan Pappe, The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine.

OUR SPONSORS
AMERICAN ISRAEL PUBLIC AFFAIRS COMMITTEE
Our highlighted sponsor is the most notorious and fearinducing lobby in Washington D.C., AIPAC. With an annual budget of $65 million and a membership of over 100,000 nationwide, AIPAC drives fear into the hearts of all politicians in the U.S. Congress, and makes sure they toe the line on Israel. For AIPAC, and thus for the U.S. Government, Israel can do no wrong, the Palestinians are disorganized, incapable savages (at best), and Iran is the greatest threat to world security. Thanks to AIPAC, the U.S. continues to underwrite Israel’s apartheid regime, even though it inflames hatred against the U.S. and lends support to America’s most dangerous enemies. www.stopaipac.org

THE JEWISH NATIONAL FUND
Since 1948, the JNF has illegally expropriated thousands of acres of Palestinian land, helping to create the world’s worst refugee crisis. The Fund also participated in the physical destruction of many Palestinian villages, planting Israeli forests on top of the remains to prevent the original residents from returning and to erase them from the map. www.jkcook.net/DisappearingPalestine
