    They are still American citizens and should be allowed to voice their opinions and beliefs to the government through lobbying.

    I agree.

    I would be in favor of eliminating duel citizenship laws though.

    It is not in the interest of the US to stand by Israel and shield them from being held responsible for their atrocities and armed aggression. I don't want my tax dollars going to spending time on Capitol Hill to find ways that allow Israel to violate international law.

    So I think their lobby group AIPAC, should be outlawed and prevented from lobbying any member of Congress.
    Sentiments such as yours and others of your ilk or worse are exactly why AIPAC needs to exist.

    "your ilk"?

    has ilk ever been used in a manner not meant to be negative? It's just a shade above "that" in front of a person's name.

    ilk: Noun
    a type or class: three or four others of the same ilk [Old English ilca the same family]

    USAGE: Although the use of ilk to mean a type or class is sometimes condemned as being the result of a misunderstanding of a Scottish expression of that ilk, it is nevertheless well established and generally acceptable.
    ilk - definition of ilk by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    Maybe he cares one whit. But DEFINITELY not two whits.

    AIPAC is not a foreign organization. It is an American lobbying group supported entirely by American citizens who want their views heard. Apparently you didn't read the thread.
    I will assume they don't get any money under the table from Israel and I still want them banned--as well as any other groups lobbying for a foreign Nation.

    I'm half German, how did it look for German Americans who rallied and supported Germany during pre WW1 and preWW2? Did those Germans have support from non-german Americans? Nope. Not at all--just the opposite, we must stop giving Israel preferred treatment and forget this ridiculous "I can do it" because I have dual-citizenship. How does one acquire dual-citizenship anyway?

    During the Vietnam draft era many American Jews went to Israel on a "religious exemption" clause, I'm presuming they had dual citizenship? It's so ironic isn't it, the talk of defending a Nation and going to another Nation to avoid service--gotta get more consistent guys--you want of talk of Hippies avoiding the draft? Get consistent guys.

    Suppose there was no AIPAC and we threw Israel to the wolves surrounding her. Are you really ready to deal with the consequences?

    Really?

    I'll bet not.
