The Israel lobby's power over Congress: Both parties obey
Published on Apr 2, 2021
Pro-Israel organizations and individuals have acquired major power in Congress among both parties, driving many US policies. A number of books have described this situation, including "The Israel Lobby" by Professors John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, "They Dare to speak Out" by former Congressman Paul Findley, "The Lobby" by Edward Tivnan, "Big Israel" by Grant Smith, and "Against Our Better Judgment" by Alison Weir.
The AIPAC conference in the video is the national convention of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, one of the most powerful lobbies in the U.S.
The photo at the end of the video of a bullet-riddled ship is of the USS Liberty, a U.S. Navy ship attacked by Israeli forces. For information see: https://ifamericansknew.org/us_ints/ussliberty.html
