Dr. Stephen Zunes, Professor of Politics and International Studies at the University of San Francisco, discusses his article “Bipartisan Assault on Middle East Peace;” the overwhelming passage of H.R. 4133, which commits the US to defend Israel as a “Jewish state;” the lunatics in Congress that make the Obama administration look downright rational in comparison; how the US raises the bar on Arab concessions to Israel in order to prevent a peace deal; and Congress’s contempt for the Arab Spring, since it has brought down friendly dictators and advanced freedom and liberty for the people.

  1. The U.S. Government in general–and Knesset West, aka the U.S. Congress in particular–grovels in the dirt to Israel, that criminal Zionist entity. The U.S.-Israel relationship is a sick, perverted relationship, one in which the U.S. serves as Israel's doormat.

    Every Israel-Firster, every chickenhawk neocon, ought to be shipped the hell over to Tel Aviv. It's where their loyalties truly lie.

  2. The American public thinks it has a real government, all because the corporate rich have their paid actor politicians put on such a grand show of stupidity. For since 1776, anarchy ruled by High Society is what Empire USA is all about.

  3. Our founding fathers were just pure genius. They warned us to stay out of foreign affairs. The disaster that has resulted in the unholy relationship with Israel has proved they were correct. The zionist came in the millions after they ran into great trouble with the Russian government in the last 25 years after the killing of the Russian czar in 1880. They looked for weakness in the governments that the relocated and they saw that to take over the USA they only needed to chage the way we elected senators and bribe the house members. Shortly we changed from appointing senators by state official to electing them. This on the surface sounds great until on realizes what happened. We use to have people in the senator who had to keep the people back home happy or they would be replaced. Now we have a person who needs massive money and can buy lies to publish on the TV. We have 100 senators running around the world looking to cause international war over taking care to get some poor guy a job in the home state.
    The weakness of a federal system is buying a very few gain control over everyone. I am not sure what can be done to undo the damage but was are doomed by the war mongers that we presently elect.

  4. 'Lunatics' in Congress?
    How about the Zionist TRAITORS to the American people in Congress.

  5. Wow. It took Zunes all this time to realize that U.S. does not want peace in middle east.

  6. That's not necessarily true.
