MID-EAST REALITIES - www.MiddleEast.Org - Washington - 8/1/00:
  The Americans have created "client regimes" in the Middle East to do their bidding.  And these regimes have in turned worked closely with the American political establishment to create "client organizations" in Washington to falsely speak on behalf of Arabs.
  Case in point:
  When Clinton was first elected President and started filling the top foreign policy slots with graduates of the Israel/Jewish lobby, including a former head of that lobby's think tank to head up Middle East affairs at the National Security Council, Zogby was trotted out to proclaim that Clinton's Middle East choices were good ones and that Martin Indyk (the Israeli lobby think tank head) was a good friend of his and a great choice for the job.  For many in the media it was approval from the Arabs for Clinton's stacking the deck as never before.
   Now the same Zogby has been trotted out again, this time to endorse Joe Lieberman.
   Lieberman is one of the Senate's most prominent advocates of Israeli policies, in recent years has been an ardent crusader to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, and has pushed hard to continue the genocidal sanctions against Iraq.  But according to Zogby, quoted in an overseas Reuters report in August, "He's a fair guy, he's a good guy."
   And then the Arab Americans wonder why with spokesman like Zogby they are laughed at by their enemies, scorned by most of their own.

      Institute AAI), and the role Zogby plays in Washington, go to
