  1. What would be wrong with the Israelis building a synagogue, not the third temple, on a corner of Temple Mount? The Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa mosque would be left alone. Its a site that is holy to Jews and Christians so it shouldn’t be controled by one faith alone.

  2. Is AIPAC trying to stop you from seeing this video?

    AIPAC Threatens to Sue CODEPINK Over Controversial Video Clip

    WASHINGTON – February 26 – On February 25th, an AIPAC member called a CODEPINK staffer threatening legal action in response to a controversial video clip that he alleges was made by the peace group CODEPINK. The video is a satirical version of an AIPAC policy conference promotional video.

    In response, CODEPINK co-founder Medea Benjamin commented, “It is absurd for AIPAC to threaten legal action over such an obviously satirical video. It is interesting that they are reacting so strongly to the clip, though. Perhaps it’s because the content is really an accurate reflection of AIPAC’s dangerous foreign policies. AIPAC does, in fact, advocate for bombing countries such as Iran and Syria; it fails to condemn Israel’s continued building of settlements and its human rights abuses against Palestinians; and it lobbies Congress to send billions of taxpayer dollars to Israel to continue the occupation of Palestine.” She added, “What are they trying to hide by silencing this video?”

    CODEPINK activists have contacted legal representation and are available for interviews.
