Add comment on:The Israel Lobby Cowbird
How is the Israel lobby like a swarm of cowbirds? Cowbirds use the devious strategy of brood parasitism, arriving at the nest of more parentally-oriented birds to lay their own eggs. Cowbirds then enjoy unburdened freedom to forage and thrive while their own young are raised, fed and protected by unsuspecting parents. If an avian host dares remove the cowbird's offspring, the host's own eggs--if not the entire nest--will likely be destroyed by the watchful cowbird. This coercive relationship is eerily similar to how Israel lobbying organizations flit about Washington, hatching operatives into the U.S. federal government to pursue a solitary goal--advancing the interests of a foreign state without the obligation of registering foreign agents or working through properly credentialed diplomats as rest of the flock of nations must.
