Ex-Rep. Paul Findley, R-Illinois, continues to state that Israel has a vast, undue influence in the United States.
The American Israeli Public Affairs Committee is considered the most powerful lobby in Washington. How else could anyone explain why we are still fighting in Iraq, a country that is not a threat to us?
Findley states that we attacked Iraq for ``Israel and for oil.'' But he's not the only important American to say this. Ralph Nader, ex-President Jimmy Carter, Noam Chomsky, the Washington Post, ambassadors and newsmen have all stated that Israel has undue influence in American foreign policy.
How can AIPAC be the most powerful lobby in our nation's capital? Israel only has 6.4 million people.
