    One who is curious about the world at large?

  3. Richard, I have absolutely no doubt you meant what you said in good faith. But can you really endorse anyone (Jew or not) giving legs to the idea of the Elders of Zion? While to a Jewish audience, it’s funnny, but look at how it has been taken up in the blogosphere, by people who are desperate to prove that a Jewish conspiracy controls American (and world) politics. People like Americangoy, the contents of whose website could mostly fit without looking out of place on a neo-Nazi website.

    (Incidentally, you can only accept that the “Israel Lobby” controls American politics if you believe, as Americagoy does, that the American people themselves (the 99.99% not part of the enlightened elite) are stupid and susceptable to the Zionists’ fiendish ways.)

    By the way, if AIPAC have such power, how come Jon Stewart is so heavily watched and so heavily lauded?

    (Wikipedia: Stewart and the rest of the members of The Daily Show have received two Peabody Awards: the first one for a piece covering the 2000 Presidential Elections entitled Indecision 2000, and another for covering the 2004 Presidential Elections entitled Indecision 2004. In the December, 2003 New Years edition of Newsweek magazine, Stewart was named the “Who’s Next?” person for the coming year of 2004, with the magazine predicting he would emerge as an absolute sensation in that year (the magazine said they were right in the “who’s next for 2005” issue). Stewart was also named one of the 2005 Time 100, an annual list of 100 of the most influential people of the year by Time Magazine.[52] Entertainment Weekly named Stewart as its “Entertainer of the Year” for 2004. In addition, Stewart and The Daily Show received the 2005 NCTE George Orwell Award for Distinguished Contribution to Honesty and Clarity in Public Language. Asteroid 116939 Jonstewart is named in his honor.
    Television ratings show that [The Daily Show] generally has 1.45 to 1.6 million viewers nightly,[10] a high figure for cable television
    It is syndicated in 19 countries worldwide, including Israel.

    God what a powerful lobby they are!

  4. @BobFromBrockley:

    It was a joke. Jon Stewart is a comedian and social satirist. I think most people understood that & took the joke in the proper spirit. I don’t think Jon Stewart is responsible for what every moron might make of one of his jokes.

    Do you seriously claim that AIPAC isn’t as powerful as Stewart was making it out to be? If it wasn’t his jokes wouldn’t have been funny. They were & it is.
