Remember I posted this snippet awhile back:

Does it have a future?

“If the future of AIPAC depends on becoming an organization of donors, that means looking to the Orthodox over time, who also happen to be more conservative politically,” Rosen said.

Jeremy Ben Ami, who heads J Street, the liberal Jewish Middle East policy group that at times has positioned itself as AIPAC’s rival, said catering to the Trump and Netanyahu governments would be a death sentence considering the American Jewish community’s political trends.

“The alliance between two leaderships that three-quarters of American Jews disagree with makes it hard to back an organization that exists only to support the Israeli government,” he said. “We’re in an era where the majority of American Jews want to be in opposition.”

It would be ironic if Israel that the U.S. has invested so much blood and capital in brings forward the decline of the U.S. Classic tail wagging the dog.

Why bring it up again?
Because I just read this:

It is beginning to dawn on Europeans that the Zionist neo-conservative foreign policy on both Iran and Putin's Russia makes them more vulnerable and far less secure. It is my hope that a comatose American electorate eventually figures this out in terms of their own self-interest and national security.

I said previously Trump is isolating America. The good thing is Americans could probably fare well in isolation.

Maybe America needs another war of independence from a small distant country!?!
