Zionist-left Democrat's threat: if Israel goes down to international law, so will America

Rep. Ackerman says U.S. kills hundreds of innocent civilians every month in Af/Pak
(Mondoweiss) -- by Philip Weiss --

New York Congressman Gary Ackerman, speaking February 7 at a congressional breakfast hosted by two Jewish groups:

"I would contend that on any given month during the war in Iraq and the war in Afgahnistan and Pakistan, in one month probably more innocent civilians are killed by American troops – unintended consequences – than in the whole Gaza incursion…."

(Note that human rights organizations say that about 430 women and children were killed in the Gaza onslaught and about half of the total 1400 dead were noncombatants.)

"And if the international community thinks that they can condemn Israel and accuse it of war crimes, based on the Goldstone Report, which is intended to delegitimize the very existence of the state of Israel, than it’s not just Israeli soldiers and Israeli officials, but the very president of the United States or any American soldier, if they decide to apply those same standards to us or anybody else, that’s in danger of being arrested, locked up, and put on trial in the Hague, for the same thing Israel is being accused of right now."...MORE...LINK

Chris Moore comments:

Here are a few entries from Ackerman's biography on Wikipedia relevant to his background and ideology:

--On October 10, 2002, Gary Ackerman was among the 81 House Democrats who voted in favor of authorizing the invasion of Iraq.

--He convinced the German government to establish a US$110 million fund to compensate 18,000 Holocaust survivors and to investigate whether 3,300 former Nazi soldiers now living in the U.S. and collecting German pensions are war criminals.

--He was one of only 22 Congressman and one of 2 Democrats from New York to vote against a resolution calling for the protection of the symbols and traditions of Christmas.

--On May 22, 2008, Gary Ackerman submitted the controversial resolution H. Con. Res. 362 which opponents call a declaration of war against Iran.[8] Ackerman drew stern criticism from analysts who assert that he has adopted a hawkish stance against Iran largely because of pressures from AIPAC.[9]

--On January 12, 2009, Gary Ackerman admitted to arranging a visit between Israeli officials and a defense contractor at the same time he was investing in that contractor.[10]

So what we have in Ackerman is a lefty-Jewish Zionist Democrat (one of a hugely disproportionate 45 Jews in Congress, all but one residing on the authoritarian Left, and every single one of them a Zionist, including the one Republican Jew, sniveling Neocon Eric Cantor) who pursues a Jewish supremacist agenda, including voting for the Iraq war (a war largely instigated by the Israel lobby), essentially threatening that America's execution of the War on Terror (an initiative that he himself helped to instigate) leaves it vulnerable to accountability under international law if Israel is held accountable to international law first, therefore Israel should be given a "pass," no matter what it does.

This is the kind of conundrum a country gets itself into when it allows itself to be infiltrated and co-opted by alien ideologies like Zionism, and Christian-hating Jews like Ackerman.
