Now that Barack Obama has become the “presumptive nominee” for the Democratic Party’s nomination for President – who are the first people he holds his victory rally with?
No, not the people who helped him “clinch the nomination” but the most powerful political lobby in the United States – the pro-Israel AIPAC.
His speech also is made coincidentally on the eve of the 41st anniversary of the Israeli attack on Egypt and the occupation of the West Bank – June 5, 1967.
Obama defends Zionism and the brutal policies and human rights violations of the Apartheid state of Israel. He’s making promises to Israel that he hasn’t made to America.
Israel has a powerful, professional, elite, technologically advanced and effective military and the only one in in the Middle East region with nuclear weapons.
He’s promising $30 billion dollars of American taxes to pay for Israel’s ethnic cleansing so they can steal more Palestinian land, destroy Palestinian olive trees, bulldoze their homes, and then build settlements which are only for Jews – no Arabs. They will be forced to live behind the Apartheid Wall.
He went further by adopting Israeli policy that sees Jerusalem as the “undivided capital” of the Jewish state.
Read excerpts of his speech to AIPAC:
Let me be clear. Israel’s security is sacrosanct. It is non- negotiable. The Palestinians need a state that is contiguous and cohesive, and that allows them to prosper – but any agreement with the Palestinian people must preserve Israel’s identity as a Jewish state, with secure, recognized and defensible borders. Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided.
Those who threaten Israel threaten us. Israel has always faced these threats on the front lines. And I will bring to the White House an unshakeable commitment to Israel’s security.
That starts with ensuring Israel’s qualitative military advantage. I will ensure that Israel can defend itself from any threat – from Gaza to Tehran. Defense cooperation between the United States and Israel is a model of success, and must be deepened. As President, I will implement a Memorandum of Understanding that provides $30 billion in assistance to Israel over the next decade – investments to Israel’s security that will not be tied to any other nation.
Americans will continued to be taxed to pay for Israel’s war crimes? At a time when Americans are having a tough time paying for gas, food, rent, housing, etc we will be forced to hand over billions to Israel.

Some people claim Israel is the 51st state but Obama’s speech makes it sound like it is the 1st state.

In the same speech he also said:
“As President, I will work to help Israel achieve the goal of two states, a Jewish state of Israel and a Palestinian state, living side by side in peace and security.”
I have only one question – When will we get a two state solution for Israel and America?
