    I don't know exactly when the American congress became accoiuntable to Israel, but it probably had something to do with the rise of the PAC. AIPAC is not actually a PAC that controls congressmen directly, but they control several PAC's that do. Israel controls AIPAC. This means that Israel owns the American congress and they have for years. This doesn't mean that Israel owns the American president BUT, if the president wants cooperation from the Israeli controlled congress, he will be nice to Israel, and all of them have been very nice to Israel. Obama got a little out of line at first, but he was new. He has been trying to make up for it ever since. The Jews in the American congress don't hide the fact that they are there for Israel first and formost. America should not allow itself to be used as a proxy for Israel to attack the United Nations. America needs to extract itself from between Israel and the rest of the world. Israelis would feel better if there were a few terrorist attacks in America. The best way to make this happen is to make America support Israeli terror attacks. That's what we see here.
