The very first act of the 115th US Congress (see chart below) on January 5 was to assure Israel that United States would be subservient under Donald Trump administration. It slammed United Nations for passing a resolution (342:80) condemning Israel’s Jewish settlements.
On December 29, 2016, Trump supporter and anti-Muslim Patrick Buchanan raised the red flag: “Having tweeted, ‘Stay strong Israel, January 20th is fast approaching,’ and having named a militant Zionist David Friedman as his ambassador, Trump is certain to tilt US policy heavily toward Israel.”
Donald Trump has just appointed his Jewish son-in-law Jared Kushner as his senior White House adviser. Kushner family funds Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.
Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder of Israel advocacy group, Simon Wiesenthal Center, who is to bless Trump inauguration ceremony on January 20, reportedly received $35,000 from Kushner family. Hier and his SWC earlier this week called the US abstention on a United Nations Security Council Resolution condemning Israel for settlement building the top anti-Semitic incident of 2016.
Iranian-born professor Hossein Mousavian (Princeton University), wrote on January 8,2017: “Fascinatingly, Trump’s triumph over Hillary Clinton was anticipated by Iran’s supreme leader, who just prior to the election declared that Trump had more support among Americans due to his frankness about the realities of the country. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, for his part, believes that America has a corrupt political system, has fostered the rise of terrorist groups like the self-proclaimed Islamic State and Al Qaeda, and has spurred instability through military intervention in the Middle East. Thus, he regularly argues that for Iran to engage in negotiations with such a country would have little value, and a formal diplomatic relationship would be actively harmful – a position some incoming senior U.S. officials feel about Iran (here).”
On January 3, 2017, Dr. Philip Giraldi in an article claimed that for US lawmakers and mainstream media, Israel comes first.
“So stop blaming Israel for acting selfishly, since that is the nature of the beast, as in the fable of the frog and the scorpion. More to the point, it is the American Quislings who should be the focus of any examination of what is taking place as they are deliberately misrepresenting nearly every aspect of the discussion and flat out lying about what might actually be at stake due to Washington’s being shackled to Netanyahu’s policies. I will leave it to the reader to decide why so many U.S. politicians and media talking heads have betrayed their own country’s interests in deference to the shabby arguments being put forward on behalf of an openly apartheid theocracy, but I might suggest that access to money and power have a lot to do with it as the Israel Lobby has both in spades,” Giraldi said.
In fact, Tel Aviv spends a very small portion of the USAID to Israel to fund Israel Lobby in order to buy the loyalty of the US corrupt politicians and the mainstream media.
“The pundits who most often scream the loudest in defense of Israel are often themselves Jewish, many having close ties to the Netanyahu government. They would undoubtedly argue that their ethno-religious propinquity to the problem they are discussing does not in any way influence their views, but that would be nonsense. One of those persistently shouting the loudest regarding the “peace” canard is the ubiquitous Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, who has never seen anything in Israel that he dislikes,” wrote Girldi.
