American Jewry: Interests and Intents (w/ Help from Haaretz)
19 Sep 2007
Captain May, the Internet intelligence writer, analyzes the taboo subject of Jewish ethnicity, and its impact upon our national policy. Is the term "anti-Semitism" about those who don't like the Jews -- or is it about those whom the Jews don't like?
American Jewry: Interests and Intents (w/ Help from Haaretz)

Dear Cascadian,

There is no issue that has brought so much friction to the many groups I have led as the issue to whether or not it is fair to discuss Jewish ethnicity as a factor in United States or world affairs. Anyone who attempts to do so, under what ever terms, is automatically labeled an anti-Semite. When I began my mission of conscience four years ago I was very sensitive to that accusation, but have it had hurled in my direction so many times over those four years that now I consider it an irrelevant canard.

If Bush had shown a consistent pattern of taking advice from or giving appointments to any other group, be it Catholics, Irish, Mormons, Germans, blacks -- ad infinitum -- there would be a never ending discussion about among our intelligentsia and their mainstream media. Why should it be any different for Jews, who are the chosen people for King George? Candidly, the knee jerk reaction of Jews to any discussion of the Jewish interest or influence is a strong argument for those who argue that Jews are the most ethnocentric of people. The of avoidance of Jewish topics by the mainstream media is a strong argument for those who argue that Jewish ethnic interests dominate it.

Again, as I wrote below, I am not anti-Semitic, but neither am I stupid. This week has been marked by the admission of Alan Greenspan that the Iraq war was largely about oil. Regardless of what you think the cohesive force in the media is, it is clear that they have made a coherent effort to avoid such a fundamental truth for five years now. Since the war began, I have been publishing opinion pieces, arguing that the war objectives were oil and Israel. I am pleased for the belated corroboration of the Jewish former chairman of the Federal Reserve about the oil. I am likewise pleased for the corroboration of around one third of the people of Israel in my view that American Jewry has its own political agenda, and that leading us into the quicksand of a Middle East war is the most important point in that agenda. I strongly recommend that all read the short and strong article:

Poll: 71% of Israelis want U.S. to strike Iran if talks fail
By Aluf Benn, Haaretz Correspondent
http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/860903.html

Is it possible that we Americans have been victims of the consorted effort to make us in capable of having a conversation about the all important topic of a Jewish interests and intents? We are about the only people in the world who do not believe so. We close one eye when we look at the world, then praise ourselves for our insight and humanity.

Best regards, Captain May

Re: Bush Names Jew as Attorney General

I really opposed the title of this. I suggest we instead focus on his history in regards to connects and actions and not his religious affiliation. His connections and actions will show if he is a Corporatist or connected with PNAC.

I have not been able to confirm this report, but it is certainly interesting. We know that Chertoff, who heads up Homeland Security, is a Jewish Zionist. We know that the neoconservative movement is, in large part, simply Zionism by another name. We know the Zionists in the US media were crucial to selling the 9/11 treason and the global war against Afghanistan and Iraq (and now Iran).

I have no problem with the United States electorate, asking strong questions about the loyalties of John F. Kennedy as he, a Catholic, ran for the presidency in 1960. I believe it's only prudent to consider the current candidacy of Mitt Romney with a consideration of his status as a Mormon. Is it prejudiced, bigoted or unreasonable to have doubts, even fears about the appointment of so many Jews to positions prominence in the Bush administration -- especially positions that will become crucial if Bush is to establish an outright tyranny through dictatorship?

I'm not anti-Semitic, but neither am I stupid. I want to see more facts about this latest Bush League appointment, including whether or not he is Jewish. By the article and link below. It is quite clear that he is playing ball with the demonization of Arabs, which is the foundation of the global war on terror. I need to read his op-ed from the Wall Street Journal, which is also cited. My gut feeling is that this guy is a Zionazi.
