WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS, BLAME THE JEWS: It's all about oil! No, no, it's about avenging Bush's father! Even though he wasn't actually killed! Still not convinced? Of course! It's because those Jewish-named power brokers in the Bush Administration (the ones who all work a level or more below that noted Mishbucha of Cheney, Powell, Rice, and Rumsfeld) are more loyal to Israel than America! That's the real reason we're going to war in Iraq.
Now we've even got a Democratic congressman parroting this line. James P. Moran of Virginia, apparently unaware of polls that show the majority of American Jews are liberals who oppose both Bush and the war, said earlier this week that "if it were not for the strong support of the Jewish community for this war with Iraq we would not be doing this," and that "the leaders of the Jewish community are influential enough that they could change the direction of where this is going and I think they should." Now Moran knows how Trent Lott feels- at least, he should, if the Democratic Congressional leadership has any backbone whatsoever. But then, backbone has hardly been the Dems' strong suit in the post-Clinton era.
Doesn't anybody remember that Bush I's administration, specifically his foreign policy team, was constantly accused by the press and others of anti-Semitism (over the Israel loan guarentees dispute and other instances)? And now Bush II's team, with many of the same people, is somehow acting on behalf of the International Jewish Conspiracy? How does that work?
