Blankfort (1) has likewise attributed the continued predominance of pro-Israel lobbies in the corridors of power to the corrupt election system prevalent in the United States that allows influence peddlers to purchase or finance candidates at will. This has been manifest in the US system since the nineteenth century and any politician ambivalent to this is quickly hounded out of office through carefully orchestrated manipulations through the Jewish controlled media, theatre, intellectual, economic and other forums. Current tactics involve encouraging or taking members of Congress on guided tours of Israel to win their support.
According to Bard (2), over 100 Congress members paid a visit to Israel frequently at the behest of the lobbies. According to Davidson (nd), most Americans have minimal interest in US foreign policy decisions as evidenced by opinion polls during election years. He thus asserts that this dim view of the outside environment leads to over-reliance on experts “ pundits” or “ opinion makers” who are often the lobby groups advancing their own agenda masquerading as a domestic or American interest. Davidson describes how public opinion is shaped subtlety through carefully selected public fed information pieces by the Jewish controlled media to shape public opinion in favor of their parochial interests in face of the gullible public largely uninterested in foreign affairs.
The control of the media is exemplified by that of Australian born American Zionist leaning financier Rupert Murdoch who owns both the electronic and print media companies in six continents (Free-Press). Curtiss (17) and later Anderson (2) underline how the perverse biased US foreign policy in the Middle East has made the idea of democratization repugnant to the Arabic nations after over 60 years of American hegemony.
The influence of the powerful rich lobby groups has largely privatized foreign policy to serve the insular interests of either economic, ethnic or cultural groups thus deviating from the ideal preferred national interests (Davidson, nd).
