Pence and Pompeo at AIPAC

Zionist lobby AIPAC operates illegally as an unregistered foreign agent — flagrantly breaching the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) since its 1953 founding.

The law requires organizations and persons “acting as agents of foreign principals in a political or quasi-political capacity to make periodic public disclosure of their relationship with the foreign principal, as well as activities, receipts and disbursements in support of those activities” — according to the Justice Department.

Yet no action was ever taken by US authorities to hold AIPAC accountable for breaching the law, supporting the lobby for Israeli apartheid viciousness.

US officials show up regularly at its annual conferences, paying fealty to the organization and Israel, supporting what demands condemnation.

Evangelical Christian fascist, imperial war cheerleader, Zionist ideologue Mike Pence showed up at its March 2020 conference — welcomed by the largest US gathering of fellow pro-Israel bigots.

“America stands with Israel,” he roared, ignoring decades of Jewish state crimes of war, against humanity, and slow-motion genocide against long-suffering Palestinians — the highest of high crimes he, other Trump regime extremists, and the vast majority of congressional members support.

Pence and AIPAC stand for what just societies abhor.

He’s notoriously pro-war, anti-peace, anti-progressive, anti-social justice, anti-governance serving everyone equitably, anti-abortion rights, anti-LGBT and women’s rights, anti-gay marriage, anti-worker rights.

He’s a bigoted white supremacist and far-right religious fundamentalist, part of Washington’s lunatic fringe.

Pretending the US seeks peace and stability in the Middle East, he ignored its ongoing wars of aggression in multiple theaters, along with economic terrorism against targeted nations.

Along with a litany of bald-faced Big Lies, his remarks lacked substance — cheerleading Ziofascist Israel alone, demonizing its enemies. 

Addressing the conference as well, Pompeo’s remarks were similar.

“(T)here is no president and no (US regime) that loves Israel more than Trump and our team,” he roared, adding:

“We declared the common sense truth that the Israeli West Bank settlements aren’t per se inconsistent with international law (sic).”  

Fact: Security Council resolutions automatically are international and US constitutional law. They leave no ambiguity about unlawful Israeli settlements on stolen Palestinian land.

Pompeo: “We released a groundbreaking Vision for Peace (sic).”

Trump’s no-peace/deal of the century was drafted by the Netanyahu regime — an annexation scheme fulfilling an Israeli wish list, offering nothing to Palestinians but endless occupation and human misery under the Jewish state’s repressive boot.

The Trump regime “took out (Iranian General) Qassem Soleimani,” falsely calling him an “anti-Semitic terrorist” — murdered for effectively combatting the scourge of US/NATO/Israeli supported terrorism.

The US and Israeli partner in each other’s high crimes. Each pariah state supports the other — together with NATO comprising humanity’s greatest threat.

Showering praise on the Jewish state, Pompeo reinvented its history, pretending it’s democratic, ignoring its apartheid viciousness, its contempt for Palestinians and the rule of law, its cross-border aggression against Syria — its 72-year history of high crimes against peace, human and civil rights.

He pretended anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism, knowing one has nothing to do with the other.

Pence and Pompeo represent the worst of what imperial arrogance is all about — the former an extremist, war-mongering/hate-mongering politician, the latter a street thug masquerading as a diplomat.

They, other hardliners infesting the Trump regime, and DJT are at war on humanity at home and abroad.

Hooligans against peace and democratic values, they’e hostile to the rights and welfare of ordinary people everywhere.
