On June 2, 2008 Sen. John McCain gave the keynote address at the opening of the annual AIPAC Conference. On June 4, 2008 Sens. Clinton and Obama followed Sen. McCain at the AIPAC Conference. All pledged blind and ever lasting loyalty to the Zionist cause. All agreed that the Palestinians are untermeschen best confined to the ghettoes of the West Bank & Gaza. Discussions on the use of Zyklon B were deferred because the technicians from Germany were not on hand. All agreed that they'd rather "kill them [the Palestinians] off by peaceful means" (as Tom Lehrer suggested in a different context) such as running them off their own land through continuing the naked land-grab of "settlements".
Nothing quite says United States of Israel as having all of the candidates for the office of President of the United States crawl on bended knee and kow-tow to an organization that is essentially an agent of a foreign power. AIPAC isn't a lobby or special interest devoted to the welfare of any segment of US citizenry. On the contrary it is a lobby that insists on the welfare of a foreign state ahead of the interests of the United States of America and its citizens.
The junior Senator from Illionis, St. Hopey (St Hope-y? St. Hopi?) was intent on proving himself more Jewish than the Jews, more intransigently Zionist than any past or present POTUS or candidate for POTUS. St. Hopey took pains to claim that his given name "Barack" was a corrupution of the Jewish "Baruch". Stepping off the cliff altogether, St. Hopey promised his support as POTUS for an undivided Jerusalem as the capital of the apartheid state of Israel, a position at odds with 50+years of publicly stated US foreign policy.
