Former Congressman Pete McCloskey speaks at the 13th Institute for Historical Review conference in 2000. The topic of his speech is Israel, the Anti Defamation League and Free Speech.

By the 1980s the ADL’s main purpose was no longer to try to stop anti-Semitism and bigotry, but instead to discredit any voice that was hostile to the policies of Israel – and not only to discredit people who spoke out against Israel, but to deny them a forum.

Former US lawmaker Cynthia McKinney says every candidate for Congress has to sign a pledge to vote for supporting the military superiority of Israel.

"Every candidate for Congress at that time had a pledge. They were given a pledge to sign ... that had Jerusalem as the capital city," McKinney said in an interview with Press TV on Sunday.

"You make a commitment that you would vote to support the military superiority of Israel that the economic assistant that Israel wants that you would vote to provide that," she added.

McKinney said that if a candidate does not sign the pledge or perform accordingly, "then you do not get money to run your campaign."

The former Congresswoman said that after she made the pledge issue public "the tactic changed."

"But this is what is done for 535 members of the United States Congress, 100 senators and 435 members of the House of Representatives have to now write a paragraph which basically says the same thing."

He comments came as US President Barack Obama vowed to sustain Israel's military superiority over its neighbors at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's (AIPAC) annual gathering on Sunday.

"We (the US) will maintain Israel's qualitative military edge"... "We have increased military financing to record levels," Obama said.

Hour long documentary about heroic former Congressman from Illinois Paul Findley. The film tells about his Midwest boyhood during the Depression, his World War II service in the Pacific, and his time in Congress – and what happened to him when he spoke out about Israel and the pro-Israel lobby in the U.S.

Findley is the author of the groundbreaking book on the Israel lobby, "They Dare to Speak Out," available on Amazon at www.amazon.com/Paul-Findley/e/B000APJH18

Our guest on the "CNI: Jerusalem Calling" internet-radio show on January 21st, 2010, was Jeff Halper, co-founder and Coordinator of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (ICAHD). Halper and CNI Board Member Alison Weir discuss settlement expansion in East Jerusalem, and how Israel uses home demolitions to sow fear among Palestinians in the occupied territories.

A beautifully filmed documentary about former Congressman Paul Findley from his Midwest boyhood during the Depression, to his World War II service in the Pacific, to his time in Congress – what happened to him when he spoke out about Israel and the pro-Israel lobby in the U.S.

Alison discusses the $38 billion military aid package to Israel and Rand Paul's courageous action to block the legislation.

"The Critical Hour" is hosted by Wilmer J. Leon III, a nationally syndicated columnist with a Ph.D. in Political Science from Howard University.

The US is on the verge of enacting legislation to send $38 billion to Israel – the largest foreign-aid package in American history. Senator Rand Paul put a hold on the bill and may filibuster against it, incurring the wrath of the Zionist lobby. Alison Weir, founder of If Americans Knew, joins Sara Montes de Oca to share her insights.

The Israel lobby is one of the most powerful lobbies in the United States. This video contains clips in which lobby officials were surreptitiously recorded describing their strategies to bend and sometimes break U.S. election laws; there is information on a secret fundraising party for political candidates; and U.S. Congressional representatives from both parties speak openly about how pro-Israel pressure works on the ground.

The clips were gathered from the following sources (we encourage people to view the full videos):

* A leaked documentary produced by Al Jazeera that was suppressed under pressure by pro-Israel Americans, containing information from Professor John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago, co-author of The Israel Lobby; Craig Holman, PhD, government affairs lobbyist for Public Citizen; former Congressman James Moran; and diverse Israel lobby officials – https://youtu.be/F0n_Dke18Co
(Additional information: http://bit.ly/2SJgcGj)

*A 2011 interview with former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-Georgia)– https://youtu.be/p-rbw_SLoeA (McKinney described the pro-Israel pledge required of candidates in even greater detail in a speech in Minneapolis on Nov. 6, 2009 – https://youtu.be/-syB3JQkhFQ)

* A 1990 speech in Congress by former U.S. Congressman Gus Savage (D-Illinois) – https://youtu.be/zQP8V-kZ2EQ

* A 2007 speech by former U.S. Congressman Paul Findley (R-Illinois), author of “They Dare to Speak Out” – https://youtu.be/dKHMrCqaDPc

This clip shows how a fake, "astroturfed" pro-Israel protest was manufactured by the Emergency Committee for Israel with help from the Hoover Institution.

The clip is from a censored Al Jazeera documentary exposing Israel’s influence in the U.S. According to Israel's Ha'aretz newspaper, the documentary was pulled in a bid "to appease U.S. Jewish community." More information at bit.ly/2ONtkLy

The Hoover Institution is located at Stanford University and is funded under Stanford University's tax-exempt status as an educational institution. It would appear that the Hoover Institute's actions documented in this video may violate this status.

Information on the Emergency Committee for Israel, led by Noah Pollak, can be seen at bit.ly/2C4eBFp

"Astroturfing" is a term for orchestrated political activism that pretends to be grassroots.

Naftali Bennett, Israeli Minister of Education & Minister of Diaspora Affairs, announces social media "command center" which uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to analyze every single post on Facebook and Twitter, says it currently detects roughly 10,000 ‘antisemitic’ posts a day. However, because Israel has distorted the meaning of 'antisemitism' (see http://bit.ly/2Pbmpcb) many, possibly most, of these posts may concern Israel's violations of human rights rather than bigotry toward Jews.
