The Jews-only state of Israel has started work on a massive extension of its border wall with the Gaza Strip—at exactly the same time that the anti-Trump wall US Democratic Party has acquired yet another Jewish lobby group dedicated to making sure that party “remains pro-Israel.”
News of the new Gaza Strip wall was almost completely suppressed in the Jewish-lobby controlled media in America, even though it was distributed by the Associated Press newswire service.
In a statement, the Israeli Defense Ministry said that the above-ground barrier — 65 kilometers long and six meters high — would work in conjunction with an underground wall also under construction.
Work on the new wall began last Thursday, the statement continued, adding that it would be similar to the one that runs along Israel’s border with Egypt, but would have “significant improvements” and will be made up of some 20,000 tons of galvanized steel.
At its western end, the statement said, the above-ground barrier would join a fortified sea wall jutting into the Mediterranean.
“It’s massive and especially strong,” the ministry said in an accompanying video clip.
Meanwhile, the US Democratic Party—which refuses to support President Donald Trump’s border wall with Mexico, but supports wall-surrounded Israel, this week acquired yet another Jewish lobby group dedicated to ensuring that that party remains supportive of the Jews-only ethnostate.
According to a report in the Jewish Telegraphic Agency titled “Is there a need for another big Washington pro-Israel group?,” the new lobby is called the “Democratic Majority for Israel.”
That article pointed out that there are already two Jewish lobbies in existence which specialize in making sure that Congress remains pro-Israel: the Jewish Democratuc Council of America, and J-Street. (The JTA article of course “forgot” to mention the American Israel Political Action Committee, AIPAC, which has its tentacles in both parties).
According to a the official press statement issued by the new Jewish lobby, their goal is to “strengthen the pro-Israel tradition of the Democratic Party, fight for Democratic values and work within the progressive movement to advance policies that ensure a strong U.S.-Israel relationship.”
The organization’s CEO will be Mark Mellman, a former President of The American Association of Political Consultants and one of the Democratic Party’s leading strategists, and the organization’s Co-Chairs will be longtime Democratic strategist Ann Lewis, and top Democratic fundraiser and activist Todd Richman.
The statement went on to say that the “Democratic Majority for Israel” will “focus its education and advocacy efforts first around the 2020 presidential and congressional elections. The organization will engage with grassroots activists, elected officials and Democratic candidates who promote progressive values to advocate for continued support of a strong U.S.-Israel alliance based on shared values and shared interests.”
“Democrats across the country understand the importance of America’s relationship with Israel,” said Ann Lewis, Co-Chair of the new Democratic Majority for Israel Board and former Assistant to the President for Communications for President Bill Clinton.
Meanwhile, just to emphasize that this Jewish-lobby triple-prong move to control the US Congress works without fail, Trump announced that American soldiers would “retain some troops in Syria to protect Israel.”
“We’re going to be there and we’re going to be staying– We have to protect Israel,” Trump told Margaret Brennan on CBS’s “Face The Nation” on Sunday when asked about a timetable for the withdrawal of 2,000 troops.
