Israel Lobby group AIPAC has announced the creation of a new group to lobby against the Iran nuclear deal. Dubbed “Citizens for a Nuclear Free Iran,” which intends to launch a $20 million media campaign to convince the American public that the deal is “dangerous.”
AIPAC officials say that the group is “dedicated to preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons capability,” and the campaign will be using targeted advertisement in somewhere from 30 to 40 states.
Though they insist the lobbying will target both parties, it seems to be aimed primarily at Democrat districts, with AIPAC spokesman Patrick Dorton saying “Democrats should be especially concerned” about the deal because it “increases the chances of war.”
The Citizens for a Nuclear Free Iran advisory committee is stacked with hawkish former Democrat officials, including former Sens. Evan Bayh and Joe Lieberman, reflecting that the group’s primary goal is to try to get enough Democrats opposed to the deal to get a veto-proof majority in both houses of Congress. This is believed to be extremely unlikely, but the lobby will continue to throw money at the effort.

Is it me or are they trying to hide Israel's agenda in a new skin? They say the deal will lead to war. Isn't that what they want? If they believed that then shouldn't they be all for the deal? Obviously the deal prevents war and that's why they are upset.
Israel should have nuclear inspector in it!
We are all learning of the Israeli involvement in 9/11 and this is why all are distancing from them.
AIPAC is a terrorist organisation
Why is it that nobody listening to these liars seems to notice that it is ISRAEL which has the nukes, Israel which threatens and invades others, Israel which is NOT a signatory to the NPT (which its "ally" USA does not respect anyway, while Iran does), that Israel is the aggressor and Iran has not attacked anyone in centuries, and has in the past been on the same side as Israel??????
Now the USA and Israel support Saudi Arabia, which really IS a supporter of terrorism, wants nukes and to any normal person is a nation to avoid.
It sounds more like they are targeting Democrats in support of their Republican buddies.
It's time AIPAC be required to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. Their claim that they are an American lobby group is undercut by the obvious truth. The Steiner admission was not a slip of the tongue and it has only gotten worse. They boldly attempt to and unfortunately succeed in influencing members of Congress with donations and help defeating election foes.
Time to legally define them as to what they are – agents of a foreign government. As such, their donors would by law be required to be identified, I believe. The US should also prosecute under Executive Order 12947 (1995) which prohibits fundraising within the United States on behalf of groups opposed to the peace process in the Israeli–Palestinian conflict – of which it is obvious Israel would be in clear violation.
And then remove the tax exemption and tax them accordingly.
Would be even better if our government were to freeze AIPAC (Apartheid Israel Public Affairs Committee) funds.

that is so true
Religion or the all-mighty dollar — Lubricant that gets things done in our war economy
Problem is, it took $2 billion to get Obama the Liar elected, another $2 billion for his reelection and if the corporate rich really wanted to kill the deal, about $1 billion in political donations to democrats would surely get the job done.
For since 1776 has High Society supplied over 90% of political donations turning America into Empire USA and a rich man’s paradise.
Which is why Israel was created for two reasons: First, to be a terrorist state that maximizes profit in the trading of war materials for Middle-East oil. Second, as a smokescreen to take the heat off of High Society by fooling the public into thinking the Zionists rule our Empire, that religion has more political power then the all-mighty dollar.
Truth in advertising… Change the name to, "Dual citizens who want your kids for cannon fodder" and see how much support there really is.
As soon as you see the title "Citizens for…." you know is isn't any grassroots organization; big money hiding behind the pretend "just average $20 Joe/Jane".
The commercials for Citizens For A Scofflaw Israel have already begun polluting the airwaves on broadcast TV in the Philadelphia area, an area rife with the Democrats the author alluded to. Makes me want to hurl.
what a joke
$200 Million campaign wouldn't make us change our mind on israhell…
