Condoleezza Rice Is Subpoenaed in Israel Lobby Case

This post, written by Manila Ryce, originally appeared on The Largest Minority

A federal judge has ordered Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley, and other senior officials to testify in the trial of two former American Israel Public Affairs Committee lobbyists.

The AIPAC lobbyists are accused of passing classified information from a Pentagon official (who has since been convicted) to Israeli officials and journalists. However, the lobbyists claim they were regularly instructed to do by the US government. This case may shed more light on American foreign policy in the Middle East.

AIPAC is the most powerful foreign lobby in Washington, and is responsible for America's one-sided stance on the Israel-Palestinian issue. In fact, the entire "issue" is only an issue because of America's support for Israel's Zionist regime. Without pressure from AIPAC, American support would crumble and Israel's occupation would end.
