The Only Organization

I meant to comment on this last week. AIPAC has sent out an "Iran is a threat" fund raising letter. AIPAC is determined to have the United States engage in war with Iran.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - As the Bush administration pursues sensitive diplomacy, the influential U.S. pro-Israel lobbying group AIPAC has sent out a fundraising letter seeking support for a tough U.S. line against Iran's nuclear program.

In a letter to supporters this week, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee requested contributions to build support for a proposed law tightening U.S. sanctions on Iran. [Which will lead to war.]

...

AIPAC, with about 100,000 members, has for years considered Iran and its nuclear program the most serious threat to U.S. ally Israel and sought to ensure a tough American policy.

"Iran's apocalyptic president (Mahmoud Ahmadinejad) has openly and repeatedly called for Israel's destruction. [Not True.] But long before he began making headlines ... AIPAC was working behind-the-scenes to educate [threaten?] leaders throughout the U.S. government about the growing Iranian threat," the fundraising letter states.

"While many organizations now realize the threat that Iran poses, AIPAC is the only organization uniquely positioned to work with (the U.S.) Congress and the administration to take meaningful action against this terrorist regime," it said.


Well, AIPAC itself thinks it is the only organization that is capable of pushing us into war with Iran. I have to agree, despite that Noam Chomsky that "corporate interests" are the driving force of US policy in the Middle East.
