When it comes to meddling in democratic elections Israel is king

Meddling in Elections

"For many years I have felt that the situation in the Middle East was very nearly hopeless.  The fundamental problem for us is that we have lost our freedom of action in the Middle East and are committed to policies that promote neither our own national interest nor the cause of peace.  AIPAC (the American-Israeli Public Affairs Committee) and its allied organizations have effective working control of the electoral process.  They can elect or defeat nearly any congressman or senator that they wish, with their money and coordinated organization" Senator William Fulbright

Just so that we do not forget who really meddles in US elections and US politics all the time

AIPAC role in US elections

AIPAC is not the only group though it is the most visible that influences US elections to serve Israeli (not American interests). Here is a partial listing

We have to remember that it was Israel which pushed for the war on Iraq and damaged US Politicians who opposed the war (e.g. the Israel lobby boasts of its influence to get rid of US congress people like Paul Findley and Cynthia McKinney). See http://qumsiyeh.org/connectingthedotsiraqpalestine/

And look at The Israel Lobby by John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt http://www.lrb.co.uk/v28/n06/john-mearsheimer/the-israel-lobby

And then there are the billionaire Zionists like Sheldon Adelson who all contending republicans for president court http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2015/09/sheldon-adelson-is-ready-to-buy-the-presidency.html

And who can forget that a Jewish lawyer by the name of Harry Katz talked to head of AIPAC in 1991 and that the head of AIPAC boasted about theiur negotiations” with Bill Clinton for support but only if the Zionists get key cabinet positions (secretary of state and as his national security adviser)

And can we forget that Prime Minister Netanyahu discarded protocol, snubbed President Obama and addressed AIPAC’s US Congress in March 2015 interfering directly in US Policy that was interested in best deal for the US (with Iran). Thankfully, they did not succeed then to change Obama’s discourse so they now ensured to have a successor who will annul the deal http://www.wsj.com/articles/netanyahu-sets-address-to-u-s-congress-roiling-israeli-election-1421975680

Just last week, an Israeli diplomat was caught on tape boasting about meddling in British elections and politics

For more on politics, elections etc, see this chapter from my book “Sharing the Land of Canaan” http://qumsiyeh.org/chapter11/

And this is only the tip of the iceberg. So please share these links to show who really meddles in democratic elections. (Someone ought to write a book)
