Secretary of State John Kerry at Senate Foreign Relations INARA Hearing, July 23, 2015
At yesterday’s Senate Foreign Relations Hearing on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action under the Iran Nuclear Review Act, Secretary of State requested time from Chairman Rob Corker (R-TN) to respond to comments by Sen. Jim Risch (R-ID) regarding the Iran nuclear pact. The C-Span clip below shows Kerry responding by waving an article from the Washington Post authored by former Israeli Shin Bet Director, Ami Ayalon and former Mossad Director Ephraim Halevy. According to an Arutz Sheva article, Both Ayalon and Halevy are leftist opponents of Israeli PM Netanyahu. Moreover they are security consultants to J Street, the alleged pro-Peace, Pro-Israel group headed by Jeremy Ben Ami. Arutz Sheva noted:
As part of its campaign to promote the Iran nuclear deal to US Congress, liberal Jewish advocacy group J Street has distributed a document containing quotes from Israeli security experts supporting the agreement, Walla! News reported Thursday.
Among those cited are former Shin Bet chief Ami Ayalon, former Mossad chief Efraim Halevy, Maj. Gen (ret.) Yisrael Ziv and Professor Uzi Even, a former official at the Dimona reactor.
MK Shelly Yechimovich (Zionist Union) is also quoted despite having expressed opposition to the deal.
The J Street documents also cites the opinions of the "Council for Peace and Security" which is comprised of hundreds of former senior officials of the IDF and other security forces in Israel.
We have posted on the Americans for Peace and Tolerance documemtary, J Street Challenge regarding evidence of an interlock relation of a board director, Genevieve Lynch who is also a board member of the pro-Islamic Regime Washington Lobby Group the National Iranian American Council (NIAC) headed by Swedish-Iranian citizens, Dr. Trita Parsi with close Administration relations. We pointed out in our post a Breitbart News report on a former NIAC employee who is now on he National Security Council staff at the White House, Ms. Sahar Nowrouzzadeh. This episode at yesterday’s Senate Foreign Relations Hearing demonstrate the astonishing cupidity of the Administration in furthering propaganda of a notorious anti-Israel groups, J Street, abetting the position of the Islamic Republic threatening with ‘wiping Israel off the map of the world” with threats of “Death to America, Death to Israel”.
