"Among the points of contention are Twitter posts by one CAP writer on his personal account referring to “Israel-firsters.” Some experts say the phrase has roots in the anti-Semitic charge that American Jews are more loyal to a foreign country, Israel, than to the United States. In another case, a staffer described a U.S. senator as showing more fealty to the prime U.S. pro-Israel lobby, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, than to his own constituents. The first writer has since left the staff.
But the critics also point to writings on the CAP Web site, where staffers have suggested that AIPAC was pushing the United States toward war with Iran and likened Israel’s treatment of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip to the policies of the segregated American South." Washpost
",,,the policies of the segregated American South?" Really? I am pretty old and lived in the South in the bad old days. I don't remember white phosphorus, mortar fire, air strikes, selective assasination, etc. What I remember are stupid private people who decided to bomb Black churches, county sheriffs and local police who used firehoses, dogs, etc. Maybe there is an equivalence between "Cast Lead" and the Selma Bridge incident but I don't see it. Thank God that we have been saved from all that.
Never mind, the interesting thing here is a demonstration of the determination of SOME Jewish organizations to suppress free speech and drive people from the "public square." Why do they do that? That's easy to answer. The Shoah and a wealth of previous historical experience hangs over them. Sad. We Gentiles are obviously unworthy of trust. pl
