Philip Giraldi speaking at the National Press Club, in Washington, DC, on January 30, 2013, focuses on Christian Zionism’s end-time theology interworking with Israeli politics and their influence in American domestic and International politics. A subject he observes not much discussed in Washington, that needs to be talked about more.
He emphasized the political significance of Christian Zionists in the United States, their involvement in and growing influence over American domestic politics and some aspects of American foreign policy, through major movements such as CUFI, two million strong (Christians United For Israel) members, headed by pastor John Hagee, a potent political force.
He explains how their mechanism actually works by pointing to an example as recent as last Monday, when 200 CUFI (Christians United for Israel) leaders were flown to Washington, all expenses paid, to lobby their senators against the confirmation of Chuck Hagel as US Secretary of Defense ( @4 from each State so they could lobby every senator). He added, Hagel has been criticized by the evangelicals as being less than completely supportive of Israel and hesitant to go to war against Iran for Israel.
The bottom line, Giraldi stresses: Christian Zionism’s involvement in American politics on behalf of the U.S. relations with Israel, does not serve any conceivable national interests, unless one assumes Israel and the U.S. are essentially the same, which is unsustainable. On the contrary, he observes, it serves a particularly narrowly construed parochial interest, that ironically is intended to bring about the end of the world, possibly a victory for pastor John Hagee, if his interpretation of the bible is correct, but quite likely a disaster for the rest of us.

Pastor John Hagee leader of CUFI
Her main focus are the US-Mid-East Conflicts. Her writing has been featured in several print and online publications in the Middle East. She is committed to exposing(AIPAC) the Israel Lobby's control of American policy for the Middle East. Control which amounts to treason by the Zionist Lobbies in America and its stooges in Congress, and that guarantees there can never be a peaceful resolution of the Middle East conflicts, only catastrophe for all, in the region and the world.
Her focus is Israel’s drift towards greater oppression of the Palestinian people; the political deceptions and crisis in Syria and Ukraine; the cold hard facts about America’s so-called ‘war on terror’ and grim future; countering the propaganda war towards Iran & Russia and calling attention to, the new, developing, promising, strategic alliances as a consequence.
Her mission is to inform and educate the public on issues of the US/Middle East conflicts that are unreported, underreported, or distorted in the Zionist ownedAmerican Media.
Her writing reflects the incredible resilience, almost superhuman steadfastness of the occupied and oppressed Palestinians, who are now facing the prospect of a final round of ethnic cleansing.
Her mission is to inform and educate internet viewers seeking unfiltered information about real events on issues of the US/Middle East conflicts that are unreported, underreported, or distorted in the American media.
Her purpose is to look at the current reality from a different and critical perspective, not to simply rehash the pro-US/Israel perspective, smoke and mirrors that has been allowed to utterly and completely dominate Mainstream discourse.
PS: For those of her detractors that think she is being selective and even “one sided,” tough, that is the point of her work, to present an alternative view and interpretation of the US-Israel-Middle East conflict, that has been completely ignored in mainstream discourse and denied the US public. Oh, and she is not Muslim or Palestinian and not married to one either! She is practicing Roman catholic.
