The Jane Harman case – involving phone-taps, the Zionist lobby, AIPAC and national security – has caused a storm in the US.
The Jewish Forward newspaper has an interesting observation about how Zionist fanatics are viewed:
“We know that we are closely watched, that people might be listening to our phone calls. This is our working premise,” said a former senior Israeli official who was based in Washington in recent years. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the issue, said he believed that suspicion toward Israel was prevalent in the military and intelligence establishments but was not common at the political and diplomatic levels.
The aim of splitting Jewish support for Israel is that the political elite start realising that many Jews do not support Israeli racism. And want the US to pursue more balanced policies.
It’s happening, slowly but surely.
