Plain and simple. Though not required to have a licsense as such, the following article shows where their interests lay. It is not in our National Security interests to support Israel without question. Sure, the Corporate and the blood thirsty IrReligious Right love it.

AIPAC is another force that will ensure that even if we have a Government run by the Democrats, not much will change. I remember when Gov. Dean in his run for the Presidency, called for evenhandedness he was immediately criticized by AIPAC'S #1 whore Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and many a Dem. Sadly Gov. Dean folded. Another chance for an epiphany in the American politic shot down.
