Israel Lobby and American Policy PART 3 2019 “Grant F. Smith, James North”
National Press Club, Washington, DC
March 22, 2019

Grant F. Smith
“U.S. foreign aid and the Israeli nuclear weapons program”

In 1969, the Department of Defense, intelligence community and Department of State recommended President Richard Nixon uphold the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons and pressure the Israelis to stop their nuclear weapons program by withholding U.S. arms. U.S. deliberations considered Israel’s illegal diversion of U.S. weapons grade uranium.

However, the Nixon administration adopted Israel’s policy of “ambiguity” toward Israel’s nukes. Why did this happen? How has “ambiguity” been maintained for a half century? What law governs U.S. foreign aid to non-NPT signatory nuclear countries, and how is this law continually subverted? How has the pattern of action leading to “ambiguity” been repeated in other key U.S. policy areas of interest to Israel and its lobby?

“How The New York Times rigs news on Israel Palestine”

The New York Times often sets the agenda for American news media. Yet America’s “newspaper of record” is consistently biased when covering Israel Palestine. How does the NYT use framing, omission and placement to ignore Palestinian and dissident American voices? Why are so many Israelis and their U.S. backers cited, and so few Palestinians? How open to feedback is the newspaper? Why does The New York Times do this? Are there any cracks in the edifice of such reporting?
