The conference is taking place today in Washington. It’s aim is It is to draw attention to “massive, automatic and unconditional U.S. support for Israel,” and it is being held two days before the start of the annual AIPAC conference. You can go here to visit the conference website and to see a list of scheduled speakers.
You run into the phenomenon time and time again: US Jews who favor open borders and unlimited immigration to America while at the same time supporting the apartheid state of Israel–a country which seeks to preserve its own ethno-religious purity even as it denies Palestinians the right of return. For hypocrisy it’s hard to top that.
Rep. Val Demings (D-Florida)
More mass insanity. Val Demings is the representative to Congress from Florida’s 10th district. According to Demings, the riot which took place in Berkeley, California on Wednesday, Feb. 1–in which protesters set fires, smashed shop windows, and lobbed fireworks and Molotov cocktails–was “a beautiful sight.” What is even more bizarre is that Demings is a former police officer and the former police chief of Orlando, Florida.
Furthermore, according to Wikipedia, she is marred to Jerry Demings, who is currently the sheriff of Orange County, Florida. It would appear we have finally entered The Twilight Zone.

In the photo above we see US Congressman Ed Royce of California discussing HR 11, a resolution he introduced condemning the UN Security Council for its recent action on Israeli settlements. You’ll also notice, to Royce’s right, Florida Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen brushing her hair with a pink hairbrush.
[ Ed. note – A few days ago I posted part one of Al Jazeera’s three-part undercover investigation into the Israeli lobby in the UK. You will find parts two and three at the bottom of this post. I am also sharing an excerpt from a commentary posted today by Gilad Atzmon, who notes that even though the series of reports shows “how Israel and its lobby plot against Britain and the Brits,” the program nonetheless “failed,” as he puts it. The Al Jazeera team, he says, “softened” the report “with the usual politically correct fluff.” Or, to use a distinctly American idiom, they simply couldn’t bring themselves “to call a spade a spade.”
Extremely interesting and informative report, and definitely worth the 25 minutes you’ll invest watching it.
[ Ed. note – I’m not sure what we’ll find in this documentary all that startling or new. And by that I mean that a report on Israeli lobbyists plotting to “take down” this or that politician for not being loyal enough to the Jewish state would pretty much be confirming what we already know. But assuming that the people have been caught on video tape, and that their voices have been recorded–which is what the report promises–then that certainly would be rather explosive. ]
