    Where is the group that lobbies for us on Capitol Hill like the AIPAC(American Israeli Political Action Committee)does for the Israelis??? For those of you who don't know about the tremendous work that group does for Israel, you need to take some time out to study, not only what they do, but how they operate...

    They may not always operate above board, but then who does in this Machiavellian world... We've got to learn how the game is played if we are ever going to get into it... This group enables little Israel to receive more U.S. economic Aid that the entire continent of AFrica... Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know there's something wrong with that, but that's got a lot to do with African Lobbies being non-existent... Those lobbies would make it known what Africa's needs are, and if you get that information to the right people, and grease their palms a bit, it can be well worth it to talk to them... That is how AIPAC gets the Job done....

    In addition, AIPAC has developed a school whereby young Jews will learn how to perpetuate the game... Here's a website... I am looking for some discussion on this... We AFrican people need groups like this to serve our interests, Diaspora as well as African....

    American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC)


    AIPAC is America's pro-Israel lobby. AIPAC's mission is to advance the U.S.-Israel relationship through effective political action. In 2002 alone, AIPAC conducted more than 2,000 meetings with Members of Congress and their staffs. AIPAC's Political Leadership Development Program and Schusterman Advocacy Institute (SAI) educates and trains young leaders in pro-Israel political advocacy, and encourages them to become politically active. Students involved with AIPAC bring their Members of Congress to campus, promote voter registration, work on political campaigns, build relationships with other student leaders, and learn how to effectively advocate for a strong U.S.-Israel relationship.

    AIPAC works with four portfolioed activists on 60 showcase campuses as well as AIPAC Campus Contacts on more than 150 additional campuses “Beyond the 60.”

    AIPAC provides its student members with the following:

    AIPAC on Campus electronic newsletter
    The Near East Report, a biweekly periodical focusing on events affecting the U.S.-Israel relationship, AIPAC on Campus, Legislative Updates, and Action Alerts.
    Specialized training for propaganda response and effective political advocacy through its Schusterman Advocacy Institute.
    Scholarships to AIPAC's national and regional training conferences, including:
    AIPAC's Annual Policy Conference
    Schusterman Advocacy Institute/Saban National Political Leadership Training Seminars
    Regional Political Leadership Training Seminars
    Campaign Training Institute
    Capital to Capital: AIPAC’s birthright israel Program
    Access to internships in Washington, DC and ten regional offices across the country. AIPAC's internship program has been called one of the finest in Washington.

    AIPAC can place you by the elbow of the president
    by Ahmed Amr
    (Tuesday June 21 2005)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "AIPAC is already flexing its muscle to diminish the impact of the Franklin case. Steven Rosen and Keith Weissman were taken off the payroll. The New York Times and The Washington Post have made an executive decision that this espionage trial is unworthy of their attention. If you expect any bulletins on this story from CNN or FOX, don’t hold your breath. Most Americans don’t have a clue that another Pollard has been caught in the act of passing classified information to Israeli spies. In all, it is a very impressive display of AIPAC’s media clout."


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Early next September, the U.S. District court in Alexandria, Virginia will be the scene of a very interesting trial. One Lawrence Franklin will stand before a judge to defend himself against a six-count indictment accusing him of conspiring to disclose national defense and classified information to senior AIPAC officials – who then passed it on to Israeli intelligence operatives.


    AIPAC, the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee is not an organization to be trifled with. Everybody in Washington understands that this Likudnik lobby can make and break politicians. Not only do they have a $30 million annual budget, but they have some very well placed fellow travelers in the mass media. Come election season, they can be counted on to stuff campaign war chests with funds from ‘independent’ PACs that subscribe to their Israel First agenda. Their greatest strength is their ability to leverage their media muscle to defame and ridicule any politician who stands up to their pro-Israeli policies.

    Aside from Lawrence Franklin, at least two senior members of AIPAC are involved in this conspiracy - Steven Rosen, AIPAC’s chief of research and Keith Weissman, the deputy director of foreign policy issues. An unidentified Israeli official – who was the ultimate recipient of the classified information - played a central role in the affair.

    The case involves the usual ‘spy thriller’ elements – smuggling secret Pentagon documents and faxing them to the private numbers of AIPAC officials - meetings at Union Station – moving from one restaurant to another to avoid detection – a ‘retired’ Israeli intelligence officer who for some reason has access to the Pentagon cafeteria. Several of the encounters took place at the Pentagon athletic club. Why do AIPAC officials have such ready access to the Pentagon cafeteria and athletic club?

    Unless this show is canceled by the powers that be – we should be in for some authentic drama. One of the most intriguing aspects of the case is that Franklin was apparently motivated by upward mobility. Ambitious men are a dime a dozen in Washington – no news there. But Franklin thought that AIPAC could “put in a good word” for him. Steven Rosen discussed Franklin's chances of getting a job on the staff of the National Security Council. According to the indictment, Rosen told Franklin that he could land him a position that would place him “by the elbow of the president."

    I am unaware of a PanAfrican/African American equivelant of the AIPAC. Indeed I was unaware of this organizations existance; however, I think it is a wonderful idea. Thank you for enlightening me on the subject brother Isaiah. So often Continential Africans come on here asking how we can help them, to which many of us respond with: How? This could be one way helping the motherland would be possible.

    Brother Pan Africa, our people need to plan... That is our biggest issue as a people, we do not think long-term... We're also sorely lacking in our understanding of how money is used to get what people really want in this world...

    Just think of how much further that 420-billion stolen in Nigeria could have gone with long-term planning, and a conscientious govenrment... Send your lobbyists to the United States with just 40-million dollars to get 2000 politicians in your pockets... That would have meant loads of U.S. Aid to AFrica in a time when it really needs it... As it is, Africa is suffering what amounts to a Tsunami on a MONTHLY basis, 56,000 people a week dead from AIDS alone, and there are only White Boys in this country lobbying our governemnt for Aid... Wow, I am ashamed of that! Afterall, it is OUR PEOPLE who are dying...

    Peace!
    Isaiah
