A detailed scoreboard on candidates for the Senate and House of Representatives shows that 28 pro-Israel PACs and numerous pro-Israel individuals have given candidates millions of dollars in campaign contributions.

The scoreboard presents 29 bills and resolutions that were introduced on behalf of Israel. 20 passed into law or on-record statement, many by unanimous consent. The legislation has accrued a total of over 3,300 co-sponsors.

Over 80 congressional challengers have also accepted donations from at least one pro-Israel PAC; most from more than one.

A just-released Midterm Elections Scoreboard shows that Israel partisans have dominated Congress over the past 10 years, despite the preference of American voters, who consistently wish evenhanded policies and feel the U.S. gives Israel too much money.

The detailed scoreboard on candidates for the Senate and House of Representatives* shows that 28 pro-Israel PACs and numerous pro-Israel individuals have given candidates millions of dollars in campaign contributions. There are currently no pro-Palestine PACs (although one of the pro-Israel PACs supports some Palestinian positions).

The scoreboard presents 29 bills and resolutions that were introduced on behalf of Israel, some openly drafted by AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Twenty have passed into law or on-record statement, many by unanimous consent. The legislation has accrued a total of over 3,300 co-sponsors.

In the rare cases when pro-Israel bills were unpopular, the split usually occurred along party lines, suggesting that the action was motivated by partisan politics, not a deviation from pro-Israel positions.

  1. BEYOND WORDS – MERE WORDS

    Israel’s position is above board and its political actions as clear as day. The work of its supporters here in the United States is equally apparent, effective and relentless. On all fronts Israeli and Jewish political action is incredibly well organized and they are reaping outstanding results for Israel. However, insofar as they help promote the Zionist agenda – a pact with the Devil confirmed by the events of 9/11, they are siding with the dregs of moribund America – The Deep State, moving inexorably (whether they know it or not, or even care) with malice aforethought to undermine the last vestiges of a once proud political heritage.

    A pacifist can only wring hands in despair. Curious word that pacifist made up of “paci” the dative of the Latin word for peace – pax; and the English word “fist”. Is that is what we need for peace – a fist? A man can only take so much. Somehow, somewhere, something must give. The latin word for give is spelled “dare”. In America the meaning of the English word dare includes – ‘be brave enough, have the courage,’ both concepts apparently beyond the pale, beyond all of us except many of our Jewish brethren.
