Farage: 'Jewish Lobby' Has Disproportionate Power in US

'Jewish Lobby' Has Disproportionate Power in US
British politician Nigel Farage said during an on-air TV show that the "Jewish lobby" has a disproportionate amount of power in the United States while discussing ongoing investigations of Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election.

Speaking on his LBC show about investigations into Russian election meddling, Farage said there are "foreign lobbies" that are "very powerful" in the US and have influenced American politics, Hill reported.

"There are about six million Jewish people living in America, so as a percentage it’s quite small, but in terms of influence its quite big," Farage said.

"They have a voice within American politics, as indeed do the Hindu groups and many other groups in America. But I don’t think anybody is suggesting that the Israeli government tried to affect the result of the American elections."

Farage, the former leader of the right-wing UK Independence Party, was asked by a caller whether US politicians are "in the pockets" of Israel, to which Farage replied: "In terms of money and influence yes they are a very powerful lobby."

"There are other very powerful foreign lobbies in the United States of America and the Jewish lobby with its link to the Israeli government is one of those strong voices," he continued.
