Members of the US Congress must pledge their support for Israel in order to receive funding from the Zionist lobby to finance their political campaigns, an American political activist in Wyoming says.
“The problem in America is that the system is controlled by Jews,” said J Bruce Campbell, a member of the American Defense Party, a non-voting political action party dedicated to ending the Zionist power structure in the US.
“The Congress is totally controlled by them (Jews),” Campbell told Press TV on Friday.
Some US lawmakers have revealed about “the pledge that all Congress candidates must sign to get funding for their campaigns from AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee,” he said.
The US House of Representatives has approved legislation, allowing Congress to review any nuclear deal with Iran or potentially reject it.
In a 400-25 vote, the House overwhelmingly passed the legislation on Thursday which was passed a week ago by the US Senate on a 98-to-1 vote.
The bill goes to President Barack Obama in order for him to sign it at the time that Iran and the P5+1 – the US, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany – are engaged in intense negotiations to work out a comprehensive agreement aimed at ending the longstanding dispute over the Islamic Republic’s civilian nuclear work.
During the House debate on the bill on Thursday, Republicans and even some Democrats said they were skeptical that the Obama administration could reach a good deal with Iran.
“The problem with Jews is that they don’t control Obama to the extent that they want, and they know they control the Congress, so they can stymie any agreement between the P5+1 and Iran,” Campbell said.
Iran and the P5+1 along with officials from the European Union reached a landmark framework agreement on Tehran’s nuclear program on April 2 in the Swiss lakeside city of Lausanne.
The two sides are set to start drafting a final accord, dubbed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which is expected to come until the end of June.
