AIPAC Promotes War on Iran

AIPAC's a blight on humanity. It's an unregistered foreign agent. It operates illegally. It does so destructively. It promotes war. It deplores peace. It represents the worst of Israeli interests.

It controls US administrations and Congress. Edward Said called it "the most powerful and feared lobby in Washington."

In a matter of hours, he said, it can mobilize virtually unanimous Senate support for Israel. Deferentially, US politicians bow to its will. They do so disgracefully.

On June 14, Iranians elected Hassan Rohani. He's Iran's new president. He's head of state. He's a distinguished leader. He combines diplomacy, politics and scholarship.

He urges peace and reconciliation. He called for dialogue. He wants sanctions lifted.
