AIPAC is not only the second (whats the first?)most powerful lobby in Washington, the administration, both houses of Congress and state governments, but it is a master of self promotion. It knows how to package itself as a good American advocacy group while papering over its agenda, which is to serve the State of Israel and to see that the US government carefully toes that line. Its organizational structure and effectiveness is impressive. Its budget permits to do what it wants. But its all controlling motivation is to do everything it can for a foreign government under the guise of helping the US. One only needs to read Paul Finley's book to see what power they have in making and breaking political careers if an American politician dares appear too openly critical of Israel. Look what thier New York office did to see that Cynthia McKinney would loose in Georgia. And also the man running for cngress in Alabama. The charge of dual loyalties is a very serious one and I think a legitimate one when discussing American Jews allegiance to AIPAC. This could be lessened if AIPAC were declared a lobbying group for a foreign nationa state. Wonder why, just prior to this big shindig in Washington (one would like to think their swan song)Rosen and Weissman were fired?
