Divestment from Israel

AIPAC wants states to divest from Iraq. AIPAC’s executive director is quoted as saying, “If the largest state pension funds in the country were to divest from companies with ties to Iran, it would have a devastating effect on Iran’s economy.” Perhaps so. But what is the reason? The Zionist lobby and its minions would have us believe that Iran is dangerous and needs to be brought to heel. But realistically, which country is really dangerous? It is the country that is bristling with nuclear weapons (made under a clandestine program), that steals its neighbor’s land, and that runs a brutal apartheid regime. If US states want to make the world a better place through divestment, they should start by pulling their money out of Israel, which is the real “regime that threatens the safety of our world.”
