Norman Finkelstein's new book on the American Jewish community has been both widely praised and criticized by influential writers. So is the American-Jewish romance with Israel coming to an end? Are the American Jews known for their liberal views distancing themselves from Israel? Or is it simply an overstatement? Do they support the current Israeli policies? Does the Israeli lobby represent their views? And do they have a strong connection to the Holy Land? CT-ing with Norman Finkelstein, Daniel Pollak and Mouin Rabbani.

Is there anyone left on this planet who still buys the Zionist horseshit that Daniel Pollak shovels so shamelessly?   I hope I'm not the only one who was totally AMAZED to listen to Pollak, Director of The Zionist Organization Of America, denying the political influence of "The Israel Lobby" when his own fat lying ass IS THE F***ING ISRAEL LOBBY.  Does he really think the Goyim are THAT stupid? He made a complete ass of himself here again, as he always does.  Right wing Zionist douche bag.

ohh please...  the US government cozies up with Israel because they have common enemies..???  And not the billions of dollars in lobbying??? Kuala Lumpur Tribunal finds Israel Guilty of Crimes against Humanity,  The decline in US/Israel support is dwindling, perhaps cause nobody want to be associated with war criminals..?? That tends to look bad...

Comon enemies ? Crap . the only thing in Comon between Israel and US is that they are both committing war crimes. They both preach love justice freedom while destroying the lives . taking liberties and abusing basic human rights of millions of people around the world .actions speak louder than words.

Israel is the largest welfare state in the world, having received $122,000,000,000 in free cash from the US alone, to date! If you're working 40+ hours a week, especially if its for anything less than $30/hour, ask yourself why in the fuck are they taking money from you and giving it to Israel.

Israel cannot be condoned in any way.  They are murderers and thieves,. They have little to do with Jewry.  Zionism is their creed of evil.   They simply stranglehold Jewry to further their abominable agenda of death and destruction to take over the Middle East. As soon as you say anything against Israel, they pull the anti-Semitic card.  Judaism does not condone half a century of murder and occupation of the very people who gave them a home? The Zionist reach into American government, media, and banks is critically dangerous to the world.  911 was a Mossad operation and covered up by Chertoff, Zelikow, Zakheim, Perle, Wolfowitz and the rest of the Zionists and neocons in American government.  American taxpayers are being pilfered of $20B a year handed to Israel.  Why?  Why would America claim as their biggest ally, and also fund, a country of genocidaires?  Be afraid, be very afraid!

Stop calling these bastards Jews because they have NO ties to the land of Israel, they are descendants of Esau.............This is what the Bible says about these devils ( Revelation 2:9 & Revelation 3:9)
