New U.S. House Majority Leader pledges allegiance to Israel over America

Soon-to-be GOP House Majority Leader Eric Cantor met on Wednesday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — the same day when the actual U.S. Secretary of State met with Netanyahu — and vowed that he and his GOP colleagues would protect and defend Israeli interests against his own Government. According to a statement proudly issued by Cantor’s own office:

“Regarding the midterms, Cantor may have given Netanyahu some reason to stand firm against the American administration.

Eric stressed that the new Republican majority will serve as a check on the Administration and what has been, up until this point, one party rule in Washington,” the readout continued. “He made clear that the Republican majority understands the special relationship between Israel and the United States, and that the security of each nation is reliant upon the other.”

Leave aside the absurdity of believing that Israel needs to be protected from the extremely deferential and devoted Obama administration. So extraordinary is Cantor’s pledge that even the Jewish Telegraph Agency’s Ron Kampeas — himself a reflexive American defender of most things Israel — was astonished, and wrote:

I can’t remember an opposition leader telling a foreign leader, in a personal meeting, that he would side, as a policy, with that leader against the president. Certainly, in statements on one specific issue or another — building in Jerusalem, or somesuch — lawmakers have taken the sides of other nations. But to have-a-face to face and say, in general, we will take your side against the White House — that sounds to me extraordinary.”

The Logan Act makes it a felony for any American “without authority of the United States’ to communicate with a foreign government to influence that government’s behavior on any disputes with the United States.”

But all the rules change when it comes to Israel.

  1. Today, soon-to-be House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) is desperately trying to explain away the promise he made to Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu last Wednesday.

    Cantor’s statement of loyalty to Netanyahu was a shocker. No American official — by any stretch of the imagination — has the right to tell the government of Israel, or any foreign government, that he stands with the foreign leader against his own president. It is one thing to oppose particular US policies; it is quite another to tell a foreign leader, “I’m with you, not my president.”

    Of course, Cantor was just being honest. Cantor’s mistake was not telling Prime Minister Netanyahu what everyone knows is true anyway, but telling the world what he said.

    This is the classic Washington definition of a gaffe (i.e., inadvertently speaking an inconvenient truth). In this case, the gaffe produced a firestorm.

    Eric Cantor has been an AIPAC cutout since he first was elected to office. He’s been to more AIPAC meetings than he can probably count. AIPAC officials never, ever, say that when push comes to shove their loyalty is with Israel not the United States. In fact, the accusation that this is the case is the charge AIPAC hates most.
    But the soon-to-be Majority Leader came right out and said it: Israel, right or wrong.

    So today Cantor explained he was “misunderstood”.

  2. Wow, well this shows how much the power of Israel controls and dictates our government. Just as they took over Britain the illuminati Zionists have taken over the US thru their banks and media they rule things from behind the scenes. When will Christians stand up and speak out against this farce. The Jews are not the “chosen People” as God fired them from the job way back in the old testament thru their disobediences and idolatry. Jesus socked it to them time and again but Christian Bible schools have been duped by them for years and teach their new pastors to follow the Jewish line, so ridiculous and totally unscriptural. Israel dictates our foreign policy and is the reason we are in Iraq and Afganistan and are preparing to invade Iran- they will kill us all!!
