    from talking to Americans on other websites and chat sites is how many are questioning AIPAC's role in US politics and their undue influence on the hill. The wonderful thing about the Internet is that information can be shared, a lot of people I talked to in the last year since the credit crunch hadn't realised the amount of their money which goes to Israel every year and they are very angry about it.
