Jewish Money Continues To Fuel Congressional Campaigns; Pro-Israel PACs Have Ponied Up Over $1.1 Million During The 2008 Election Cycle To Date

Via the American Free Press, I have learned that the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA) has compiled a periodic breakdown of the amount of money contributed by pro-Israel political action committees (PACs) to various Congressional candidates, both during the 2007-08 election cycle alone, and during a Congressmember's entire career. According to WRMEA, pro-Israel PACs have already contributed $1,107,604 to various Congressional candidates - and the primary season hasn't even concluded yet. Imagine how much money will be given by the time the general election is over.

Indeed, when we look back at the 2006 report, we find that during the entire 2005-06 election cycle, pro-Israel PACs contributed $3,277,693 to Congressional candidates. In contrast, pro-Arab PACs contributed only $80,500. Combined with Jewish domination of the U.S. media, it effectively silences the Arab voice.

Here are the top ten recipients of pro-Israel money for each house of Congress, both for the cycle alone and career totals:

WRMEA also calculated that during the period 1978-2008, pro-Israel PACs have donated $45,530,258 to members of Congress. But this is just a part of the cost of Israel to the United States. Two other WRMEA articles attempt to assess the overall cost of aid to Israel since 1948.

In a July 2006 WRMEA article, Shirl McArthur calculates that the cost of direct aid to Israel since 1948 amounts to just under $108 billion. However, direct aid does not take into account the indirect costs in terms of effects in related areas, not to mention the effects of oil embargoes and attacks upon American soil and American property by Middle Easterners. Another WRMEA report published by the late Thomas Stauffer in June 2003 attempted to calculate all costs, direct and indirect alike, and came up with a rough figure of $3,000,000,000,000. That's right - three TRILLION.

And the situation is just as volatile now as it was in 1948. Oil is now up above $110 per barrel. Is it worth it?

Good picture of McCain . Seems the jew to his left may be scoffing at him . And he deserves it . I don't know how anyone can have faith in ANY government figure head in service to the beast . Nothing changes , they know the score . But our people love the siren song ...

When they curtail the oil , maybe that will be the final catalyst they seek .

The Jew to his left is probably one of the professional handlers assigned by the Israeli government to escort American politicians to the Wailing Wall and carefully screen them from those who might have an "unapproved" opinion about Israel's role in Palestine.
