Pompeo versucht den Iran, die Hisbollah und die Krise in Venezuela zu verbinden

Im Laufe eines Mittwochabendinterviews mit dem FOX Business Gastgeber Trish Regan gab Außenminister Mike Pompeo mehrere Erklärungen ab, die die Augenbrauen hochgehen ließen, wie z.B. die Behauptung, dass Kuba in Venezuela eingedrungen war und „die Kontrolle über den Sicherheitsapparat Venezuelas übernommen“ hatte und dass die US-Sanktionen, die illegal gegen Venezuela verhängt wurden, „nicht gegen das venezolanische Volk gerichtet sind“.

Die überraschendste Behauptung, die Pompeo im Interview aufgestellt hat, war jedoch, dass Hisbollah und Iran in Venezuela „aktiv“ sind und ein „Risiko für die nationale Sicherheit Amerikas“ darstellen.

American Jews must stand with Ilhan Omar

The right will always use Israel and anti-Semitism as a tool to destroy left-wing movements, especially when they’re led by people of color.

As a Jew, I want to welcome anyone who wants to criticize a lobbying coalition funded by arms manufacturers, evangelical Christians, and allies of the right wing edge of Israeli politics. Criticizing AIPAC is not anti-Semitic and it’s absurd that this even needs to be said.

“Our defense relationship is critical to both nations, which is why I support the United State’s commitment to provide Israel with 38 billion dollars in military assistance over the next decade.” – @KamalaHarris at AIPAC 2017

No thank you. Next, please.

Freshmen Congress Members: #SkiptheTrip with AIPAC to Apartheid Israel

On December 3, freshman Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib bravely announced that she will be skipping the trip to Israel for freshman Congress members organized by the educational arm of the American Israeli Political Action Committee (AIPAC). Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American in Congress, will instead be leading her own delegation to the West Bank to focus on the issues of poverty, Israeli military detention of Palestinian children, unequal access to clean water, and possibly a visit to Tlaib’s grandmother’s village. On December 11, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez also announced she would be skipping the AIPAC-sponsored propaganda trip.

Tell all the newly elected Congress members to follow the lead of Tlaib and Ocasio Cortez and to skip AIPAC’s propaganda trip to apartheid Israel! #SkipTheTrip
