    Looking over the files that the “institute” has posted on its website, the title of this page is unwarranted. The manipulation occurred in the 60s’ by a defunct organization. This RT report and institute report is just fear-mongering. How are we supposed to actively engage politicians if we believe this stuff?

    Note that I’m not saying that the Israeli lobby is not manipulative: as anyone who has read Stephen Walt’s book on the Pro-Israeli lobby will tell you that issue is definitely true.

    I think this is not “Fear Mongering” while Zionists target Stephen/Mearsheimer’s “The Israel Lobby” book as a propaganda and “anti-Semite” book, these de-classified documents are The Documented Evidence from the Government of US.

    I think people need to spread this and make a big deal out of it, because if the propaganda is noticed right now, the US is heading towards “invading Iran.” Recently Israel said that US won’t do it then Israel will !

    All the bloggers, Activist and spread this video in all the social networking websites.

    Jazak Allah Khair for this informative piece. It is sad but true that when the truth comes out, it is labeled ‘fear mongering’ or ‘anti-semitic’ – even by some ‘muslims’! SubhanAllah! We all know what the reality is, and this report does provide some hard evidence, though it is only the proverbial tip of the iceberg.

    Regardless of what happens with the Iran-US-Israel setup, we are definitely living at a very decisive moment in history. One just needs to look at the happenings around the world and it will become obvious that Allah Subhanahu wa taala is preparing us for a decisive future ahead, when iman, nifaq and kufr will be exposed clearly. May Allah subhanahu wa taala guide us, bless us with his mercy and help and grant us victory. Ameen.

    “The manipulation occurred in the 60s’ by a defunct organization.”

    The AZC did indeed shut down after it was ordered to begin registering as a foreign agent by the Justice Department. AIPAC assumed all of its functions and key leadership to grow into what it is today. The documentary record of that is also in the Israel Lobby Archive.

    “This RT report and institute report is just fear-mongering.”

    I would argue that the Atlantic (a magazine compensated in the AZC file) is doing more fear mongering than a single RT news report.

    Institutionalized, covert, foreign funded media manipulation is a topic well worth debating, no matter which country does it. I congratulate you for openly and critically discussing it.
