The Passionate Attachment

In a pseudonymous op-ed in The Times of Israel provocatively entitled “The Jews DO control the media,” Manny Friedman provides an insight into one of the Israel lobby’s key strategies for gaining influence in Washington:

And let’s not forget AIPAC, every anti-Semite’s favorite punching bag. We’re talking an organization that’s practically the equivalent of the Elders of Zion. I’ll never forget when I was involved in Israeli advocacy in college and being at one of the many AIPAC conventions. A man literally stood in front of us and told us that their whole goal was to only work with top-50 school graduate students because they would eventually be the people making changes in the government. Here I am, an idealistic little kid that goes to a bottom 50 school (ASU) who wants to do some grassroots advocacy, and these guys are literally talking about infiltrating the government. Intense.

Judging by the preponderance of Israel partisans in key government positions today, AIPAC’s strategy of cultivating only top-50 school graduate students appears to have been a roaring success.

  1. That’s just an icing on the cake. AIPAC is also involved in the “Israelization of US security force”. On December 2, 2011, Al-Akhbar English published a research piece by American Jewish author, writer and blogger, Max Blumenthal. In the article, entitled ‘From Occupation to Occupy: Israelification of American Domestic Security’ – Max claims that the high-handed tactics used by American security forces against the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement and American Muslims, were taught to them by Israel Occupation Force (IOF) officers.
