  • Jim David says:

    Have you noticed how the U.S. media have kept silent in regards to the 81 members of Congress spending their summer break in Israel, paid for by the American Israel Education Foundation, one of the groups connected with AIPAC? Ninety-nine percent of the American people don’t know anything about it thanks to media cooperation to keep it silent. We have all these problems in our own country and, at a critical period of time, our representatives find time to bow to Israel. It’s really disgusting.

  • Patriot says:

    Politico and Talking Points Memo (TPM) report that the FBI has been interviewing congressional staff members about American Israel Education Foundation (AIEF) sponsored trips to Israel. AIEF, created two decades ago by and administered within the headquarters of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), brought a fifth of Congress to Israel in August of 2011 despite reform laws restricting lobbyist-paid travel.

    The Examiner recently reported the investigations followed IRmep filings with the IRS and Justice Department claiming that AIEF was a sham organization operating on behalf of an unregistered foreign agent of the Israeli government (AIPAC). Code Pink’s Medea Benjamin filed a similar complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics. Although outlets such as TPM center their coverage on accounts of skinny-dipping in the Sea of Galilee and claim the investigation is limited, the focus of interviews and scope of the investigation is not yet publicly known.
