2% who move America behind the scenes

President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held a summit in the Oval Office of the White House, Washington, on March 5 during an annual meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
Obama wants Israel to refrain from attacking Iran now, and Netanyahu pointedly refused to make that promise.
Before a two-hour meeting with Netanyahu, Obama said, “We do believe that there is still a window that allows for a diplomatic resolution to this issue,” according to news reports.
But he did not rule out the possibility of using force, saying the U.S. “will not hesitate to use force,” an indication that Israel had influence on the U.S. foreign policy again.
Some people describe the U.S. as a satellite state of Israel. This indicates that the Jewish people are behind the U.S. decision-making process. The U.S. has never said “no” to Israel, a small country in the Middle East, analysts say.
The Jewish power in the U.S. was manifested well in the pro-Israel remarks Obama made during the AIPAC meeting.
An estimated 6.5 million Jewish people are residing in the U.S. The figure accounts for 2 percent of the American population. But they constitute as much as 15 percent of the GDP.
According to the Forbes magazine, 12 of the world’s 30 largest companies were founded or run by Jewish people as of 2007. They include GE, Citi Group, Exxon Mobil, and Goldman Sachs.
Ben Bernanke, chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve Board, and his predecessor, Alan Greenspan, are also Jewish.
