Does AIPAC Determine US Foreign Policy?

Does AIPAC Determine US Foreign Policy?

By SOP newswire2

President Obama`s foreign policy in the Middle East is determined by AIPAC and its associated lobbyists. In the context of democratic government, this is a travesty.

The policy of the US president should be to enforce international law and to insist that all illegal settlements in the Occupied Territories are dismantled, and all 500,000 illegal settlers repatriated to their homes in Israel, in accordance with UN resolution and Article 4 of the Geneva Conventions.

Otherwise, America`s client state in the Middle East will be increasingly seen as the hand that controls the US presidency. That is the challenge for Chuck Hagel, Obama`s Defense Secretary designate.
