AIPAC's a weapon of mass destruction. It fronts for Israel's worst crimes. It promotes war. It threatens world peace.

It menaces humanity's survival. It operates extrajudicially. It's an unregistered foreign agent.

It represents the worst of Israeli interests. It controls US administrations and Congress. It buys politicians like toothpaste.

Stopping its ruthlessness matters most. So does exposing its lawless agenda. Few in Congress dare confront it. Doing so is a career-ender.

AIPAC has virtual decision making authority over war and peace. It assures whatever Israel wants it gets. It spuriously rails against Syria, Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas.

It maliciously calls Iran "the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism and is racing toward a nuclear weapons capability."

It calls Hezbollah and Hamas its "proxy armies." It falsely calls them terrorist organizations. It does so malevolently.

AIPAC is a world class menace. It proliferates lies and hate. It deplores peace. It promotes war. Stopping it matters most.

"Stop AIPAC" activists do so. They oppose war. They endorse peace and justice. They "encourage debate about US policy."

They "discredit false perception(s) that AIPAC speaks for most Americans or any particular ethnic group."

They condemn "militarism, occupation and empire." They want "just and peaceful foreign policy" replacing them.

They want it "based on fairness and international law." They want US resources used responsibly. They want them used "to support real human needs at home and abroad."

They "oppose all forms of racism." They're against destructive efforts to scapegoat targeted ethnic, religious or other groups to benefit favored ones.

Their agenda is clear and unequivocal, saying:

"We support US policies that uphold international law and oppose those that are contrary to it."

"We abhor and condemn all acts of violence committed by the State of Israel against Palestinian civilians, and by Palestinian groups against Israeli civilians."

"We recognize the right of all peoples to live in safety and security."

"We support the use of nonviolent resistance and believe that all parties in a conflict are obligated to respect human life and dignity."

"We recognize that it is the special responsibility of an occupying power, as the most powerful party and often the only one with significant armed forces, to act in conformity with its moral and legal obligations and ensure its power is not misused."

"All signatories to the Fourth Geneva Convention, including Israel and the US, acknowledge this responsibility."

"Accordingly, we hold that the US must oppose all Israeli actions and policies that violate international law, including but not limited to:

• occupation of territories acquired by force of arms or coercion;

• alteration of the legal, physical or demographic status of occupied territories;

• denial of collective social rights, including normal economic, political and educational activity and freedom of movement;

• violations of human rights, including assassinations, imprisonment without charges, torture, denial of habeas corpus, collective punishment, and destruction of homes, orchards, farmland, and other property;

• denial of equal protection under the law, regardless of race, religion or ethnicity; and

• denial of refugee rights, including the right of return."

"We further affirm that US foreign aid must not support or facilitate the violation of international law by its recipients, including Israel, and must be curtailed or stopped completely if the recipient engages in a pattern of human rights violations."

Stop AIPAC takes dead aim against the organization's viciousness. It wants it brought "to its knees."

It believes changing US foreign policy is vital. It wants international law upheld unequivocally.

It welcomes likeminded activists for peace, equity and justice for all joining in the most vital struggle of our time.

A separate article discussed AIPAC urging war on Syria. Along with 50 other Zionist organizations, it's lobbying Congress to do so. It's prelude to targeting Iran.

AIPAC wants all regional Israeli rivals eliminated. War is its option of choice. Confronting its destructive agenda matters most. At stake is world peace.

On September 3, the Washington Post headlined "Pro-Israel and Jewish groups strongly back military strike against Syria."

On Tuesday, 51 Zionist organizations urged war. They're pressuring "reluctant lawmakers to authorize" doing so.

Their position ups the stakes. It heightens "the debate over how to respond to Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons against Syrian civilians," said WaPo.

It initiates "a robust lobbying effort on Capitol Hill." AIPAC's in the lead. So is the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations (CPMAJO).

They called for "bipartisan consensus," said WaPo. They want war. They're going all out to prevent Congress from going wobbly against it.

The road to Tehran runs through Damascus. Ravaging and destroying Syrian Republic isolates Iran.

It's Israel's prime target. Washington wants the Islamic Republic destroyed. Diabolical war plans were readied years ago. They could be implemented any time.

They reflect madness. It doesn't matter. Waging war on humanity is longstanding US policy. Potential catastrophic annihilation is threatened.

Stopping what can't be tolerated matters most. Stop AIPAC! Stop CPMAJO! Stop Capitol Hill hawks for war! Stop media scoundrels supporting it! Do it at the most perilous time in world history!

Anti-war activism today is more important than ever! The stakes are too great to ignore! It that's not motivation enough to act, what is?
