The Passionate Attachment

America's entanglement with Israel

What do they take Americans for?

Seemingly undeterred by the piece I wrote about how al-Qaeda’s California-born spokesman — the beloved grandson of an ADL board member — advances the Israel lobby’s gun control agenda, Mayor Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns coalition has turned Adam Gadahn’s latest video into a national gun control ad campaign.

According to Sam Stein, “The spot will run on national cable channels, including MSNBC, Fox News and CNN, for a week — no small ad buy. It will then air at least once or twice on a Sunday show in the Washington, D.C., market, an official with the group told The Huffington Post.”

Jim Kouri, a conservative columnist and board member of the National Association of Chiefs of Police, suggests that the Democrats are the source of the “counter-terrorism” gun control ploy:

Several top Democrat lawmakers last week revised their gun control argument by claiming tighter gun laws will help prevent terrorists from acquiring weapons in the United States.

For example, Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) advised lawmakers to include the threat of armed terrorists acquiring more weapons and ammunition in the United States due to the nation’s lax gun regulations in any legislation to control firearms. He reminded his colleagues of an al-Qaida video that urged jihadists to utilize the lack of gun restrictions to arm themselves and their comrades.

Senator Lautenberg so far this year alone proposed three gun control bills including one co-sponsored by Senator Robert Menendez, also of New Jersey. The “Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Criminals Act” is co-sponsored by Senators Durbin, Feinstein, Levin, Reed, Schumer and Sheldon Whitehouse, Democrats all.

But as Israel Lobby watchers well know, Senators Lautenberg, Durbin, Feinstein, Levin, Reed and Schumer don’t do much without AIPAC approval.

By the way, my answer to the question posed in the title is to be found in the second paragraph of the aforementioned piece.
