  1. Looks like the Jewish treason police are out in force. Rachel or Allyson are siccing their attack dogs on my humble blog. Notice how this one who otherwise calls himself “Barry Goldberg” insinuates that because I expose the hate of people like them that I no longer have the right to call myself a Jew?

  2. Richard, if you ever get a chance to read what malcolm hoenein said at herzliya you will notice that the right wing jewish americans who blindly defend israel plan on getting very aggressive against anyone who stands up against their position. They have been aggressive against their own before, why would it be any different today.

    Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, addressed the fears head-on last week in an address to Israel’s prestigious Herzliya Conference. Lamenting what he called „the poisoning of America,” Hoenlein painted a dire picture of American public discourse turning increasingly anti-Jewish and anti-Israel in the year ahead.

    Hoenlein dated the trend to the 2005 arrest of two former employees of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, Steven Rosen and Keith Weissman, on charges of passing classified national security information. Hoenlein argued that the Jewish community made a major mistake by not forcefully criticizing the arrests.

    Speaking via video, Hoenlein listed several events that had occurred since then: the release of the essay criticizing the „Israel Lobby‰ by two distinguished professors, Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer; the publication of former president Jimmy Carter‚s best-selling book, „Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid”; the suggestion by former NATO supreme commander and Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark that „New York money people” were pushing America into war, and claims by former U.S. weapons inspector Scott Ritter that Israel is pushing the United States to attack Iran.

    >>>„In the beginning of the Iraq war they talked about the neocons‚ as a code word,” Hoenlein said. „Now we see that code words are no longer necessary.” He warned that the United States is nearing a situation similar to that of Britain, where delegitimization of Israel is widespread.

    „This is a cancer that starts from the top and works its way down,” he said. „It poisons the opinions among elites which trickle down into society.”

    According to Hoenlein, such critics tend not only to delegitimize Israel but also to „intimidate American Jews not to speak out.” He called on American Jews to take action against this phenomenon, saying that Christian Zionists seemed at times more willing than Jews to fight back.

  3. Thanks, Samuel for that comment about Hoenlein. He’s one of the great hysterics in the American Jewish leadership & I like to stay aware of his wilder ideas. I’ve written about him before but can’t find the link to the post I’m thinking of. This gives some of his background & puts into context where some of his extremism may derive from.

    Hoenlein also has a bug up his ass about the AIPAC spy trial saying it’s an anti-Semitic vendetta by the FBI against Israel and American Jews. Looney tunes stuff.

    I wonder what kind of “action” he wants Jews to take against those of us who criticize Israel? A Nuremberg trial for crimes against the Jewish people perhaps?

  4. What about the possibility of pulling out of Iraq, letting Iran invade and lose resources fighting their own kind,
    and then come in and mop up the dregs?
