[ Editor’s Note: Articles are already coming out that Bibi has overplayed his hand, and AIPAC’s, gambling on a show of power by doing an end run on White house executive control of foreign policy.

They have put themselves openly on the firing line and I urge all to take full advantage of this golden opportunity.

Everyone should start planning to put your own Congressmen and Senators under the gun for defending their history of bending over for the AIPAC lobby.

In the past there have only been sparks of outrage, that quickly died. So there have never been any political consequences to overly close relations with the Israelis, which includes espionage of course. Some of the highest classified material Israel gets is via the high ranking Congressmen that have the clearances for it.

Jewish ranks are also writing about what a bad strategic move the Bibi ploy is, not out of any concern of conscience, but because it risk the fail safe game they have been running for decades where they get almost everything they want at almost a zero boomerang cost.

We should have the VT radio phone trees up and working for this important battle. I suggest in the mean time to start organizing your own contacts to join in for your districts and states.

One of the initial steps will be sending them a list of questions dealing with Israeli threats here, asking them what they have done either in support or to combat them. That will get a buzz going.

We will then follow up with the 9-11 stuff, probably wanting it mailed from voters in their districts as that gets alot more attention. This is a huge opportunity so please get geared up. We will need everybody… Jim W. Dean ]

A majority of Americans believe Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should be investigated by the FBI for nuclear weapons technology smuggling before being allowed to enter the United States according to a new poll.

In 2012 the FBI declassified and released files (PDF archive) of its investigation into how 800 nuclear weapons triggers were illegally smuggled from the US to Israel.

According to the FBI, the Israeli Ministry of Defense ordered nuclear triggers (krytrons), encrypted radios, ballistic missile propellants and other export-prohibited items through a network of front companies.

Smuggling ring operations leader Richard Kelly Smyth alleged that Netanyahu worked at one of the fronts—Heli Trading  owned by confessed spy and Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan—and met with him frequently to execute smuggling operations.

The poll was commissioned by the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy (IRmep).  When informed of the incident, most Americans (54.9 percent) indicate that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should be investigated by the FBI before an upcoming U.S. visit.

Israel officially designated the smuggling operation “Project Pinto.”  Smyth was captured, prosecuted and incarcerated in 2002 after years on the run as an international fugitive.  The krytrons were believed to be destined for Israel’s clandestine nuclear weapons program.

Only 25.8 percent of Americans polled believe Netanyahu should be allowed to freely visit the US while 15.9 percent say said he should neither be investigated nor allowed to enter the US

When questioned by Israeli and Russian media about the smuggling affair, the Israeli Foreign Ministry denied involvement.

Younger respondents (age 18-24 and 25-34) are generally more likely to want Netanyahu investigated (73.6 percent and 62.0 percent) than older Americans.  Responses vary little between income categories.  However females (63.4 percent) were more likely than males (50.4 percent) to prefer Netanyahu be criminally investigated before being allowed to enter America.

Netanyahu has recently announced plans to break diplomatic protocol and address the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and Congress in March, 2015 without coordinating his state visit with the White House.

The IRmep poll, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percent, was fielded January 26-28, 2015 by Google Consumer Surveys and received 1,507 responses. The poll question, response choices and statistically significant results may be viewed online and cross-tabulated at:
