Activists Challenge L.A. City Council’s Expensive June Junket to Israel

While it’s nothing new for Mayor Villaraigosa to travel, this time his trip was to launch agreements with the Israeli government on water conservation and security of Los Angeles’s port and international airport. This set a precedent for the nation’s second largest city to contemplate granting a foreign power control over its sensitive ports of entry…

Marcy Winograd, co-founder of L.A. Jews for Peace, wondered: “Why is it these security agreements you signed are making me increasingly insecure? Is it because these consulting agreements are really just a foot in the door to more extensive security agreements with a foreign power implicated in espionage scandals?” >>>>>

It’s awfully disturbing that Israel, or any foreign nation, would be allowed to have control of security over any port in the U.S.  Not only is it wrong for security reasons in general; but there are many questions over Israeli-security failures during their work at airports during the September 11, 2001 tragedy.  If conspiracy theories are even one percent right; even then it should raise questions.

Is it not criminal for our politicians to keep doing business with organizations and foreign powers that appear to have a hand in the actual activities associated with 9/11 – even if it be neglect – due to incompetence or purposeful?

Is it not bad enough that U.S. citizens are struggling for jobs?  Are our security measures that weak that we must rely on Israel for this service?  Why is this not a bigger story in the mainstream media?  No offense to Israel or Jews…this is not anti-Semitic.  It’s merely a matter of security. If it were any other nation, there would be a great outcry.  Where is this outcry now?

    See YouTube and insert “Spragg Bag” in the selection box and visit http://www.waterbag.com for the most economical and environmentally friendly solution to the Middle East water crisis, then send comments to Spraggbag@gmail.com. A modular, fabric pipeline from Turkey to Israel/Gaza moving through the ocean is the answer.
