The Truth Will Set U.S. Free: Breaking Israel's Stranglehold On American Foreign Policy
Maidhc Ó Cathail
If Israel's stranglehold over U.S. foreign policy is to be broken, Americans will need to be informed about the harm that Washington 's unconditional support for the Jewish state is doing to American interests, say leading analysts of U.S.-Israeli relations. ... Philip Giraldi , executive director of the Council for the National Interest, believes that Tel Aviv's stranglehold over Washington can be broken "only by directly challenging the power of the Israel lobby and the false narrative about how it is of value to the United States ." ... "The American people must learn that Israel is and always has been a strategic liability that has done immense damage to the United States and its worldwide interests," ...
Wake Up, America!
... If ever a foreign country has stuck its thumb in the eye of Uncle Sam, it is Israel in its willingness to take the United States for a ride while always demanding still more. And when it demands more it is invariably given more, with US politicians and mainstream media ever willing to genuflect and do what is right for the kleptocracy in charge in Tel Aviv ... That means that the congressmen in question, who actually took an oath to uphold the US Constitution, know that they are doing nothing but throwing yet another bone to Israel.
A Straight Look at the Jewish Lobby
... Jews wield immense power and influence in the United States. The "Jewish lobby" is a decisive factor in US support for Israel. Jewish-Zionist interests are not identical to American interests. In fact, they often conflict. As long as the "very powerful" Jewish lobby remains entrenched, there will be no end to the systematic Jewish distortion of current affairs and history, the Jewish-Zionist domination of the U.S. political system, Zionist oppression of Palestinians, the bloody conflict between Jews and non-Jews in the Middle East, and the Israeli threat to peace.
New Woodward Book Says Afghanistan War Divided White House
New York Times
Some of the critical players in President Obama's national security team doubt his strategy in Afghanistan will succeed and have spent much of the last 20 months quarreling with one another over policy, personalities and turf, according to a new book. The book, "Obama's Wars," by the journalist Bob Woodward, depicts an administration deeply torn over the war in Afghanistan even as the president agreed to triple troop levels there amid suspicion that he was being boxed in by the military.

First World War Officially Ends As Germany Pays Off Reparations Debt
The Telegraph (Britain)
Almost 92 years after the guns fell silent on the Western Front, the final act of the First World War will be played out on Sunday when Germany pays the last chunk of reparations imposed by the victorious allied powers. The payment of 59.5 million pounds ($96.9 million Canadian) ends the crippling debt that was the price of one world war and laid the foundations for the next. Germany was forced to pay the reparations under the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 as compensation to the war-ravaged nations of Belgium and France and to pay the Allies some of the costs of waging what was then the bloodiest conflict in history, leaving nearly ten million soldiers dead.

Daily Mail (Britain)
These are the maps that show the racial breakdown of America's biggest cities. Using information from the latest U.S. census results, the maps show the extent to which America has blended together the races in the nation's 40 largest cities ...

Detroit, for example, is infamous for its divide between black and white.
