Wednesday, August 17, 2005Watching America - U.S. Officials Uncomfortable With 'Clout of American Jews'
The author, a member of Israel's Parliament, complains that senior State Department officials, some generals in the Pentagon and FBI security types … are uncomfortable with the economic power, media presence, academic importance and political clout of American Jews.
We have never had a friendlier president in the White House than George W. Bush, except perhaps Bill Clinton. There has never been as friendly a vice president as Dick Cheney since Hubert Humphrey. And since George Schultz there has never been as friendly a secretary of state as Condoleezza Rice.
It is not the leadership that is calling the shots here, but the middle-level bureaucracy: senior State Department officials, some generals in the Pentagon and FBI security types. They are not anti-Semites of the classical model, but they are uncomfortable with the economic power, media presence, academic importance and political clout of American Jews. And they believe the Jewish neoconservatives – who bear-hug the Bush administration – are pushing America into a bloody conflict with the Muslim world for the benefit of Israel, among other reasons.
