Comments on Zionist control of American foreign policy

Uri Avnery, founder of the Israeli peace group, Gush Shalom, recently published an article entitled, In the Name of Zionism, inside of which was a shocking realism about how Zionism controls American foreign policy, which is worth repeating. Our country is not exactly our own when it comes to Israel and the Middle East.
Here is just a brief excerpt that occurs in the context of a discussion about Zionism. The entire article is recommended.
The leaders of the "Zionist State" depend to a large extent upon the Diaspora and use it for their own purposes. The Exile-Jewish AIPAC ensures the subjection of the US Congress to the will of the Israeli government. The "Anti-Defamation League" (which should more properly be called the "Defamation League") is terrorizing the American media in order to prevent any criticism of Israeli policy. In the past, the United Jewish Appeal was essential for the economic wellbeing of Israel.
For years, the foreign policy of Israel has been based upon the power of the Jewish "exile" community in the US. Every country, from Egypt to Uzbekistan, knew that if it wanted aid from the American Congress, it had first of all to acquire the support of Israel. In order to get access to the American Sultan, they first had to get past the Israeli gate-keeper.
Lest one fails to mention, Uri Avnery is a Zionist, sometimes described as a “soft Zionist.” He believes in a Jewish majority in Israel, but with allowances for others, like Palestinians, to participate equally.
