National security issues aside, I have the sneaking suspicion the more the general public (on both the right and the left) learns about the power the Israeli lobby has long-held in Washington, and the sheer amount of unreciprocated foreign aid (in both money and material) the United States has provided, and continues to provide, Israel for years, the stronger the public upswell against this aid will become. AIPAC has bitten off a lot more than it can chew in this age of online transparency and enraged message forwarding requiring no more than the flick of finger. This topic is no longer inside baseball played out in dark meeting rooms, it’s been pushed into the light by Bibi’s government and AIPAC.
