Sanctions Can Be Applied to Russia but It Is Illegal to apply Sanctions to Israel
In 2007 two distinguished scholars, John J. Mearsheimer and Stehen M. Walt, published a book, The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy. The book made a convincing but understated case that the tiny country of Israel, which consists of land stolen in the 20th century, has undue influence on the U.S. government and American foreign policy. http://www.amazon.com/Israel-Lobby-U-S-Foreign-Policy-ebook/dp/B000UZQIF6/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1455848615&sr=1-1&keywords=Walt+and+Mearshimer
The Zionist lobby went to work on the two scholars. They were called every name in the book despite having done nothing but show that Israel has too much influence over U.S. foreign policy.
Today Israel has even tighter control over the Western world and has had “democratic” governments pass laws that criminalize participating in boycotts of Israel for Israel’s ongoing illegal seizures of Palestinian land. If you want to see the raw naked power that Israel exercises over the U.S. UK, and French governments, read Glenn Greenwald and Andrew Fishman’s article:
Israel is so powerful that the former chairman of the Israeli Central Bank, an Israeli citizen, is currently the Vice Chairman of the Federal Reserve in Washington.
