Lobbification is a word I have just coined for the corruptive process that bends politicians to the will of special interests – that is to the will of lobbies.

  1. >SCHEDULING DIFFICULTIESA recent meeting of the "Quartet"was scheduled to resolve problemsin the Middle East. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton canceled themeeting due to "schedulingdifficulties."You may recall that on February18 there was a proposal whichwas considered by the UN SecurityCouncil to condemn the Stateof Israel for its recent actions.As you know, there are fifteenSecurity Council members. Fivehave veto power: US, UK, France,China, Russia.All voted to condemn Israel but one: The US (at the behest of itsclient, Israel) vetoed the proposalso the proposal died.Its precise wording is unknown asit was effectively eliminated fromhistory by the US veto.(On purpose)According to information, PresidentObama will give an address onthe Middle East in a few weeks.I fail to comprehend how the UScan consider itself a "mediator"as it provides regular militaryassistance to only one of the parties, Israel. It also provideslarge amounts of so-called "charity" to the Jewish-only"settlements" in the occupiedterritories (West Bank & Gaza).(The areas were, of course, already"settled". By Palestinians.)The "deadline" is September,2011.Interestingly enough, there isalso an election which may occurrin Palestine, also scheduled forSeptember.As you probably are aware, thereis currently no "President" ofPalestine. The term of office ofMahamoud Abbas expired on January9, 2009.That's over two (2) years ago.Evidently "scheduling difficulties"prohibited filling this positionfor over two years. Abbas hasincorrectly been identified as"President" of Palestine which he is not in US media.Anyway, relax! You don't have toworry! The State Department is in close touch with JOSH BLOCK.And who, you may ask, is JOSH BLOCK???JOSH BLOCK is now a "Senior Fellow" of an orgqanization called:THE PROGRESSIVE POLICY INSTITUTEAnd what is this "ProgressivePolicy Institute"? I don't know.How is it funded? Who is it?And Mr. Block was formerly a spokesperson for the Israeli lobby in the US, AIPAC.So you can see that things arecompletely under control.The US, a beligerent, is incharge of the entire process.Incidentally, I presume that youhave marked May 2 on your calendars.That is the date of the annualconference of the Israeli lobby,AIPAC. And guess who is comingto dinner. Benjamin Netanyahu,the P{rime Minister of Israel.(barring "scheduling difficulties")Note that the US which proclaimsits virtue in protection of human beings around the world, has nevermentioned the slaughter of 1400Palestinians during "Cast Lead",the arrests of the elected GAZArepresentatives (see abridgedGOLDSTONE REPORT), the demolishingof schools, hospitals. Nor hasthe US mentioned the ethnic cleansing, house destructionswhich continues daily and more.Not to mention blockades,seige,annexation (declared illegal by theUN) and so forth.This is precisely where ProfessorDavidson's analysis is pertinent.(Information above is from an organization called FOREIGN POLICYwhich produces a regular electronicnewsletter called "The Cable".The article is "The Quartet meetingthat never happened."
