An American interest group argued in a New York Times ad that the U.S. Congress is in thrall to the Israel lobby. The Council for the National Interest Foundation argued in a full-page ad that the pro-Israel lobby helped spark the Iraq war and is now trying to “sell another” war with Iran; and is backing the “destruction of Lebanon” and the “agony of Palestine.” It also accused members of Congress who support pro-Israel legislation of “selling their vote.” The ad, which also promoted the foundation’s new DVD, ran on the weekend preceding Tuesday’s midterm elections.
