Powell rejects notion that U.S. policy driven by Jewish interests

WASHINGTON (AP) --Secretary of State Colin Powell flatly rejected on Thursday any suggestion that the Bush administration's confrontation with Iraq was engineered by Israel or American Jews.

Powell told a House Appropriations Subcommittee that the drive to compel Iraq to disarm stretches back over two administrations and 12 years of United Nations resolutions.

"It is driven by our own national interest," Powell said under questioning by the subcommittee chairman, Rep. Jim Kolbe, R-Arizona, who said he wanted to clear up media suggestions that American supporters of Israel -- and Israel itself -- were driving U.S. strategy.

Powell told the subcommittee the U.S policy "is not driven by any small cabal that is buried away somewhere," nor by a small group of individuals.

Among the U.S. goals are helping the U.N. to "do its job" and concern for the Iraqi people, Powell said.

Powell's comments came a day after Rep. Jim Moran, D-Virginia, apologized again for making comments asserting that influential leaders of the Jewish community were pushing the country toward war with Iraq.

Some Jewish leaders, including six Jewish members of Congress, have called on Moran to resign, but Moran says he has no intention of doing so.

And Isn't It Ironic... (english)
13 Mar 2003
...that it's the "neo-conservative" Wolfowitz gang of the so-called "Bush Administration" that's sending the CIA-Mossad all over the globe and manipulating both "liberal" and "conservative" media in the USA?

Colin Powell is simply being used as a puppet-of-color. He's objected to every war he's been ordered to wage by world banksters, lawyers and puppet politicians.

If this war has ANY justification, it's to remove "Israel" and restore Palestine.

Zionism is a grave mental disease.

Colin Powell is simply being used as a puppet-of-color by the decaying Anglo-Ashkenazi Empire. He's objected to every war he's been ordered to wage by world banksters, lawyers and puppet politicians.

If this war has ANY justification, it's to remove "Israel" and restore Palestine.

Most American "Jews" are inbred Caucasian Mammonists whose parents mentalities were warped by Talmudic quackery.

Most are not real Jews, nor are they Semitic. Many are just fraudulant cowards hiding behind a label that has provided them a rational to steal from others.

And Zionism is nothing more than a grave mental disease.

Hitler also wanted to segregate the so-called "Jews", remember?

Get real, folks, unless you really desire yet another holocaust.

Dump Zionism and the entire Ashkenazi notion of "Jewish" superiority. Move on to more important matters, such as real economics.
