Israel Lobby in The United States

Israel Lobby In The United States

The Israel lobby (at times called the Zionist lobby or sometimes the Jewish lobby, even though it's a political and not religious lobby) is the diverse coalition of those who, as individuals and as groups, seek to influence the foreign policy of the United States in support of Zionism, Israel or the specific policies of its government. The lobby consists of both Christian-American and Jewish-American secular and religious groups.

Famous quotes containing the words united states, states, united, lobby and/or israel:

    The Federated Republic of Europe—the United States of Europe—that is what must be. National autonomy no longer suffices. Economic evolution demands the abolition of national frontiers. If Europe is to remain split into national groups, then Imperialism will recommence its work. Only a Federated Republic of Europe can give peace to the world.
    Leon Trotsky (1879–1940)

    Perhaps anxious politicians may prove that only seventeen white men and five negroes were concerned in the late enterprise; but their very anxiety to prove this might suggest to themselves that all is not told. Why do they still dodge the truth? They are so anxious because of a dim consciousness of the fact, which they do not distinctly face, that at least a million of the free inhabitants of the United States would have rejoiced if it had succeeded. They at most only criticise the tactics.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    ... while one-half of the people of the United States are robbed of their inherent right of personal representation in this freest country on the face of the globe, it is idle for us to expect that the men who thus rob women will not rob each other as individuals, corporations and Government.
    Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)

    And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
    Bible: New Testament Jesus, in John, 8:32.

    These words are inscribed on the wall of the main lobby at the CIA headquarters, Langley, Virginia.

    ...that he may learn that there is a prophet in Israel.
    Bible: Hebrew, 2 Kings 5:8.
