IF THE ELDERS OF ZION CAN RUN THE WORLD, WHY CAN'T THEY DECIDE ON A SPOKESMAN?:

US: Neocon Flap Highlights Jewish Divide (Daniel Luban and Jim Lobe, Jul 30, 2008, IPS)

he fierceness of the controversy surrounding Klein, generally considered a political centrist, highlights the growing antagonism between neo-conservative hardliners and prominent U.S. Jews whose more moderate views are aligned more closely with those of the foreign policy establishment.

The controversy began Jun. 24, when Klein argued in a TIME blog post that the "fact that a great many Jewish neoconservatives -- people like [independent Democrat Sen.] Joe Lieberman and the crowd at Commentary -- plumped for this war [in Iraq], and now for an even more foolish assault on Iran, raised the question of divided loyalties."

Within a day, Abraham Foxman, head of the Anti-Defamation League, accused Klein of espousing "age-old anti-Semitic canards about a Jewish conspiracy to control and manipulate government".


At the point where Abe Foxman is a neocon we're deep in Cloud-Cuckoo Land.

The "neo-cons" who actually have the power to get us into Iraq or Iran are Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld. Now which one is a Jew, I wonder. Closet Jews, perhaps? From time immemorial, every fault great or small including being gased and murdered is a Jew's fault.

What Joe's sayin' is dat de Iraqis, like da Kuwaitis in '91, oughda be real, real grateful to da Jews for liberatin' deir country and givin' dem some kind of future.

Like, real grateful.

Needless t' say, Joe ain't so popular in either Kuwait or Iraq.

Say it ain't so, Joe.

Bush is a theocon and more Jewish than the neocons, who are secular.
