KEEPING IT KOSHER
Jewish pro-'surge' group 'supports' our troops
As in World War II and all the other "good" wars they sponsor, Jewish chicken-hawks are always right out front behind the lines.
It is no different this time around in the current, neo-conservative blood-letting project on behalf of Israel in the Middle East.
Pro-'surge' group is almost all Jewish JTA Friday, 24 August 2007 WASHINGTON — Four of five members of the board of a campaign promoting President Bush's policies in the Iraq war are Republican Jews.
The board of "Freedom's Watch" includes Ari Fleischer, Bush's former press secretary; Matt Brooks, the executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition; Bradley Blakeman, a senior White House staffer in Bush's first term; and Mel Sembler, a longtime RJC leader and former ambassador to Rome.
Brooks told JTA that the fifth member, William Weidner, a casino operator in Las Vegas, is not Jewish.
However, Weidner's wife, Lynn, is Jewish and is active in that city's federation.
Blakeman is the group's president. Brooks said it would be a mistake to regard the group as having a Jewish direction.
"It's a coincidence that several of the board members are Jewish," he said, noting that half of the donors contributing to the group's first $15 million ad campaign are not Jewish.
The ad blitz will promote Bush's "surge" policy in Iraq ahead of September, when Congress is set to assess the success of the influx of additional U.S. troops into Iraq.
Brooks said the aim ultimately is to build a grassroots organization that would promote Republican domestic and foreign policies and would replicate similar groups backing Democrats. "This is a clear message to conservatives and Republicans and others who see what has happened on the left to let them know with Freedom's Watch that the cavalry is coming," Brooks said.
Of eight donors named Thursday in Politico, a political newspaper, four are Jewish: Sembler; Richard Fox, the chairman of the Jewish Policy Center, an RJC-affiliated think tank; Ed Snider, the founder of the Philadelphia Flyers ice hockey franchise who has been elected to several Jewish Sports Halls of Fame; and Sheldon Adelson, a Las Vegas casino operator who recently launched a giveaway newspaper venture in Israel.

"It's a coincidence that several of the board members are Jewish." Aren't these coincidences wonderful? And isn't it just amazing that so many wealthy and disinterested American citizens of Jewish origin should be willing to spend $15 million dollars on such a venture?

How much incremental evidence do people need that organised Jewry is the main cheerleader in the bloodthirsty foreign wars we are asked to support? The Jews are not universally popular and immune from criticism like some nationalists who never talk to people in the real world imagine. It is our duty to inform the British public of the case against them.

Let us imagine that the worst comes to pass and Bush is influenced to launch a nuclear strike against Teheran. When the dust clears after the carnage, there will be a lot of very angry people of all races and religions asking for an explanation as to what brought these terrible events to pass.

In this case, I would rather be one of those who spoke out, rather than someone who provided cover (however unintentionally) for the real enemy.

Well done for posting this article.
