The campaign to get Americans in Israel to vote in the upcoming U.S. presidential elections, on which I have reported extensively, has recently released a new video. While the last video they put out incited against Arab Americans, this one essentially endorses an Israeli strike on Iran, the targeted assassination of Iranian President Ahmadinejad and implies that Israeli Air Force soldiers may embark on a “historic mission from which they may never return.”
You may have noticed that the narrator in the video uses the term “from time immemorial,” intentionally connoting the 1984 book From Time Immemorial: The Origins of the Arab-Jewish Conflict over Palestine by Joan Peters, which drew heavy criticism from Norman Finkelstein for inaccurate sourcing and references, was deemed “sheer forgery” by Israeli historian Yehoshua Porath and eventually discredited widely around the world.
Thus, the iVoteIsrael campaign has decided to identify itself with Zionist myths and propaganda that Israelis themselves have refuted long ago for being asinine. It also continues to claim to be non-partisan, yet openly attacks American politicians who refuse to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital – despite the fact that according to American policy since 1967, East Jerusalem was illegally annexed and must be the capital of a future Palestinian state.
In this way, the iVoteIsrael has proven not only how partisan it is, but also how non-credible an organization it is as well.
