21. Hmmm... Here's something to think about.
"Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it." -- Ariel Sharon to Shimon Peres, October 3rd, 2001, as reported on Kol Yisrael radio.

True? Who knows. certainly not me. Is it anti-Semitic to suggest that AIPAC has disproportionate influence over the United States Congress? I mean, they're certainly no Big Oil, but you have to wonder when OUR elected officials are all but pledging fealty to a foreign nation... In any case, they're signaling loud and clear that Israel is a priority. Nothing wrong with that, in and of itself, but in this case what's in Israel's best interest is CLEARLY not in the US's best interest.

Not to mention that I don't see annual multi-billion dollar aid packages being bestowed on Katrina victims...
