Israel’s all-powerful lobby in Washington, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), an organization composed of Israeli collaborators, infiltrators, and outright traitors to the United States, is steamrolling through the House of Representatives H.R. 1905, which would prohibit the President of the United States, the Secretary of State, members of the U.S. Foreign Service, or any special envoy from engaging in any sort of diplomatic contact, official or unofficial, with any member or agent of the government of Iran. Only when the President informs the requisite committees may he proceed with engaging on diplomatic contact with Iran. Israel has de facto control over the foreign affairs committees of Congress, so any White House notification of the need to contact Iranian officials would be instantly transmitted to Binyamin Netanyahu’s office in Jerusalem and Israel would then circumvent any U.S.-Iranian contact. AIPAC, with its resolution, is further making the United States a vassal of the Jewish state.

Israel’s strategy is to make certain that its plans to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities and, perhaps other targets, meet no opposition from diplomatic circles in the United States… Israel has placed its own interests well beyond and in contravention of those of the United States.

Putin slams West hypocritical policies (pertaining to the recent developments in North African = Libya)

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has accused certain Western powers of being hypocrites in the affairs pertaining to the recent developments in North African.

On Monday, Putin slammed the hypocrisy used by “arrogant world powers” as he hosted a conference of the 10-year-old Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in the western city of Saint Petersburg, AFP reported.

The Russian premier criticized Western powers for backing the revolutions leading to the toppling of North African regimes they previously supported.

Moscow has strongly opposed the NATO military campaign in Libya, warning the Western alliance against letting such policies turning into a norm in the future.

Moscow has also warned the West against taking tough actions against its close Soviet-era ally, Syria.

Russia considers the regional security summit as a counterpart to NATO, and hopes it will develop into a more powerful force rivaling NATO.

The SCO is an intergovernmental security organization that was founded in 2001 in Shanghai by leaders of China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.

Iran, India, Mongolia, and Pakistan are the observer states of this organization. Iran, which has held an observer status since 2005, is seeking full membership to create a powerful coalition with China and Russia.
