To Congress and AIPAC Regarding The Trees and The Children

by Eileen Fleming


For more than 50 years, AIPAC has been working in Congress “to improve and strengthen that relationship by supporting U.S.-Israel military, economic, scientific and cultural cooperation.”

On Tuesday AIPAC “applauded” The House’s passage of the U.S.-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012—which the Senate approved on 29 June 2012.

The bill will now go to President Obama for his signature to “strengthen the U.S.-Israel relationship in the fields of missile defense, homeland security, energy, intelligence, and cyber-security (read the bill summary).”

The Senate bill was spearheaded by Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Johnny Isakson (R-GA), and the House bill was led by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) and House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD).

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) also played key roles in the bill’s approval while Sens. John Kerry (D-MA) and Richard Lugar (R-IN) were instrumental in expeditiously getting this bill passed through the Foreign Relations Committee.

In the August 2012 edition of The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, among the Top Ten Career Recipients of Pro-Israel PAC Funds include:

  • Mitch McConnell with $498,141.00
  • Harry Reid with $393,001.00
  • Eric Cantor with $239,230.00
  • Steny Hoyer with $261,025.00

Among the bills ‘talking points’ are:

Supporting Israel’s inherent right to self-defense.

Encouraging Israel’s neighbors to recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state.

Urging the administration to veto any one-sided anti-Israel resolutions at the U.N. Security Council.

As a candidate of conscience for US HOUSE, I reiterate:

During Operation Cast Lead, the UN Security Council, Amnesty International, International Red Cross, and global voices of protest rose up and demanded a ceasefire, but both houses of Congress overwhelmingly endorsed resolutions to support a continuation of Israel’s so called “self defense.”

During those 22 days of Israel’s assault on Gaza, “Washington provided F-16 fighter planes, Apache helicopters, tactical missiles, and a wide array of munitions, including white phosphorus and DIME. The weapons required for the Israeli assault was decided upon in June 2008, and the transfer of 1,000 bunker-buster GPS-guided Small Diameter Guided Bomb Units 39 (GBU-39) were approved by Congress in September. The GBU 39 bombs were delivered to Israel in November (prior to any claims of Hamas cease fire violation!) for use in the initial air raids on Gaza.” [1]

President Harry Truman crossed out the word “Jewish state” on the draft of the Establishment of Israel that was cabled him and substituted “State of Israel” which he affirmed was contingent upon Israel upholding the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights: Read more…

Israel is the target of at least 65 UN Resolutions and the Palestinians are the target of none.

“Aside from the core issues—refugees, Jerusalem, borders—the major themes reflected in the U.N. resolutions against Israel over the years are its unlawful attacks on its neighbors; its violations of the human rights of the Palestinians, including deportations, demolitions of homes and other collective punishments; its confiscation of Palestinian land; its establishment of illegal settlements; and its refusal to abide by the U.N. Charter and the 1949 Fourth Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War.”[2]

After the dot-com bubble burst in 2000, Israel’s economy was devastated, but then came 9/11, and “suddenly new profit vistas opened up for any company that claimed it could spot terrorists in crowds, seal borders from attack and extract confessions from closed-mouthed prisoners…Many of the country’s most successful entrepreneurs are using Israel’s status as a fortressed state, surrounded by furious enemies, as a kind of twenty-four-hour-a-day showroom–a living example of how to enjoy relative safety amid constant war…Israel now sends $1.2 billion in defense products to the United States—up dramatically from $270 million in 1999…That makes Israel the fourth-largest arms dealer in the world…Much of this growth has been in the so-called ‘homeland security’ sector. Before 9/11 homeland security barely existed as an industry. By the end of this year, Israeli exports in the sector will reach $1.2 billion–an increase of 20 percent. The key products and services are …precisely the tools and technologies Israel has used to lock in the occupied territories. Israel has learned to turn endless war into a brand asset, pitching its uprooting, occupation and containment of the Palestinian people as a half-century head start in the ‘global war on terror.'”[3]

On page 147 of The 9/11 Commission Report notes that, “By his own account, KSM’s [Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s] animus toward the United States stemmed not from his experiences there as a student, but rather from his violent disagreement with U.S. foreign policy favoring Israel.”

Before that day we call 9/11, I was apolitical; but because of THAT DAY and This 9/11 I am now a candidate of Conscience for US House: an American Patriot first who knows she is also a Citizen of the World and a Child of the Universe.

It was 9/11 that compelled me to learn why did a few-and back then it was but a few-people in the world hated Americans so much that they could cold bloodedly murder innocent people.

I also wanted to do some good in the world and that lead me to the now defunct interfaith Olive Trees Foundation for Peace which was dedicated to raising awareness about the now over one million fruit bearing trees destroyed by Israel’s Wall under the claim of “SECURITY.”

Please view this video about those Trees

It is because of the children there is “something inside that’s so strong” I have been to Israel Palestine seven times since 2005, to learn and write in an effort to Wake Up Americans to once again hold “these truths to be self-evident: That all [people] are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights…that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among [people] deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; and, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the RIGHT of the people to ALTER or to ABOLISH it.” -July 4, 1776, The Declaration of Independence.

As this video attests PASSION for JUSTICE and the COURAGE that comes from CONSCIENCE is Universal and We Will Not Back Down and We Will Not SHUT UP until Gaza-Palestine is FREE and ALL the people of Israel Palestine are equally secure and free:

    Anti-Semites despise being called anti-Semites because they know it alienates them from human beings.

  2. ricohands  July 21, 2012 at 3:35 am

    Anti semitic? The Palestinians are semitic; the Zionist are eastern European converts to Judaism. Who’s semitic?

    “The Book” was NOT FAXED in from Heaven but is a collection of stories told by ancients for decades and centuries before being written down by imperfect scribes who made mistakes as well as edited-added as well as deleted according to their POV!

    “The Jews” were chosen to bring in the CONCEPT of ONE God to the pagan world.

    But stiff necked people chose BAD RELIGION and The Colonial Enterprise over The Prophets:

    “From Moses to Jeremiah and Isaiah, the Prophets taught…that the Jewish claim on the land of Israel was totally contingent on the moral and spiritual life of the Jews who lived there, and that the land would, as the Torah tells us, ‘vomit you out’ if people did not live according to the highest moral vision of Torah. Over and over again, the Torah repeated its most frequently stated mitzvah [command]:

    “When you enter your land, do not oppress the stranger; the other, the one who is an outsider of your society, the powerless one and then not only ‘you shall love your neighbor as yourself’ but also ‘you shall love the other.'”

    “What does God require? He has told you o’man! Be just, be merciful, and walk humbly with your Lord.” -Micah 6:8

    TRUE Antisemitism is a prejudice against or hostility towards the Jewish people and it is rooted in fear that breed’s hatred and it must be denounced and confronted and I NAILED IT HERE:

  6. The Rahnameh  July 20, 2012 at 2:04 pm

    You are a liar…. are you an anti-Semite?

  7. Eileen Fleming  July 20, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    WHY do particular people persist to hurl that most lame of ALL canards when TRUTH is Arabs as well as Jews are Semites and calling a well documented piece of work a ‘lie’ without the integrity to offer ‘correction’.

  8. Jason  July 20, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    Anti-Semites lie. Period.

    One of my all time favorite passages from the declaration, and writings of the great American Generation.

    No worry of being a ‘broken record’ gal. These are the quotes we NEED to be hearing repeatedly, instead of the politically correct propaganda line.

    In connecting the dots, across the board, ALL those achievements in bringing about the fall of America, in every possible sphere, can be accurately perceived as originating with the same ‘group’.

    It has been said people get the government they deserve.
    I say We The People have RIGHTS we have yet to seize if we truly who hold “these truths to be self-evident: That all [people] are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights…that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among [people] deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; and, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the RIGHT of the people to ALTER or to ABOLISH it.” -July 4, 1776, The Declaration of Independence.

    I know I am a ‘broken record’ here-but I FEEL we have become a ‘colony’ of Israel’s and I cite George Ball, undersecretary of state for JFK and LBJ who clearly saw the mistakes made in Vietnam and called for EARLY withdrawal and he believed/KNEW US policy of underwriting all of Israel’s actions was and is HARMFUL to America’s interests!


    “…the ultimate lesson of the LIBERTY attack had far more effect on policy in Israel than in America. Israel’s leaders concluded that nothing they might do would offend the Americans to the point of reprisal. If America’s leaders did not have the courage to punish Israel for the blatant murder of American citizens, it seemed clear America would let them get away with almost anything.”

    And so, we the people of this homeland have an Occupied Congress and a President -and Presidential Candidates without the Backbone to END the “special relationship” which endangers THIS homeland.

    “The bill will now go to President Obama for his signature to “strengthen the U.S.-Israel relationship in the fields of missile defense, homeland security, energy, intelligence, and cyber-security”.

    In other words, we pay them to build the missle defense sheild, then buy it from them, then give them the money to buy it back from us. Ponzi anyone?

    We give them more control of our security, and they introduce yet farther draconian measures and instruments upon ‘We The People”.

    We insure they’re flow of energy, especially ‘Caspian Basin’ natural gas, while they insure our NEVER implementing any of the ‘suppressed’ energy alternatives, long, long overdue.

    We only accept their Intelligence Analysis, and act only at their behest, and upon their interests.

    We allow them to ‘hack’ into and install trap doors and Trojans Horses in all National, Federal, and private computer capability.

    History repeating. Same Modus Operandi as in Germany last century, with the roots in that stemming from the century before that, same inevitable conclusion when the locals finally cotton on and go ape.

    America is being drowned with these outrageous and disreputable actions.

    The country long ago fell into the spider’s web. Since then it has been carefully trussed up and turned around and around and is now turned against it’s own people too. The political correctness laws apply the straight-jacket so that you can’t struggle or object. Now they make laws in your own government about what AMERICA has to do to help THEM! This is the final harness to stop you kicking – as the spider inserts it’s fangs and copiously sucks out the nations life juices at will.
