Obama adviser accuses Jews of 'McCarthyism'
Independent.ie ^ | May 27 08 | Alex Spillius in Washington

Posted on 05/26/2008 9:18:45 PM PDT by camerakid400

A foreign policy expert consulted by presidential hopeful Barack Obama has accused members of the American Jewish establishment of "McCarthyism" in its attitude towards critics of Israel.

Former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski says that the pro-Israel lobby in the US is too powerful, while the slur of anti-Semitism is too readily used whenever its power is called into question.

Presenting a solution for the Middle East, he listed historical compromises that had to be made by Israelis and Palestinians but accused the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) -- the largest and most influential lobby group -- of obstructing peace efforts.

Intimidated

He said: "AIPAC has consistently opposed a two-state solution and a lot of members of Congress have been intimidated and I don't think that's healthy."

He added that other country-specific lobbies, such as the Cuban-Americans, the Armenians and the Irish, had also exerted undue influence in Washington.

Hey, McCarthy was proven 100% correct by the Soviet archives. My guess is that Obama’s critics will enjoy the same when all is revealed.

A foreign policy expert consulted by presidential hopeful Barack Obama has accused members of the American Jewish establishment of "McCarthyism" in its attitude towards critics of Israel.

I wonder if he can wrap his mind around the fact that Israel's defenders are mostly evangelical christians?

Former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski says that the pro-Israel lobby in the US is too powerful, while the slur of anti-Semitism is too readily used whenever its power is called into question.

Wow, I wonder why that is?

Could it be that most of the pro-PLO pro-Hamas pro-muslim pro-Black Muslim nutcases (including his ex-boss Carter) are anti-semites? Who see the defense of Israel as some kind of jewish conspiracy?

From the article:

Ed Koch Still Pulls No Punches: New Book Includes Surprising Revelation About James Baker -

In the meantime, Baker is not the only Koch nemesis who could end up in a position to influence U.S. policy toward Israel. Also in the running, it appears, is Zbigniew Brzezinski, who served as President Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser. Years before Baker’s hostile remark about American Jews, Brzezinski, then an adviser to candidate Carter, was reported (by Marvin Kalb) to have said to an Israeli official, “How will you like the idea of working with a new president who owes nothing to the Jews?”

In March 1980, Koch caused a major controversy when he criticized Brzezinski and three other top Carter Mideast advisers as a “Gang of Four” who were trying to turn the U.S. against Israel. (The reference was to a group of Chinese leaders who had been pushed out of power by their rivals.)

During his years in the Carter administration, Brzezinski did indeed push for a tilt against Israel, as he acknowledged later in his memoirs of that period. More recently, he and several colleagues issued a statement urging the U.S. and its allies to engage in “a genuine dialogue” with Hamas. Brzezinski has endorsed Senator Barack Obama for president and reportedly is part of Obama’s circle of foreign policy advisers.

Did he mention the Wahabi Lobby too? “Prince” Bandar bragged openly about buying Washington politicians and diplomats for Fraudi Arabia. Speaking of which, I wonder who has been paying Zbig’s tab lo these many years.

Maybe it has more to do with your campaign trying to cut deals with Hamas and Ahmadinejad.

The left always throws around racism, bigotry, or sexism to political opponents without merit to stifle debate.

James Baker was a Democrat for the majority of his life.
Guess he really never left it.

This Republic will require a VIOLENT rejection and consequence for the many who have betrayed her.

I read the article and found it interesting, but couldn’t find when and where Brzezinski made his “McCarthyite” remark. Is this something new? If so, it’s obviously very newsworthy.

The left is a baiting whorish artist group. If the wind is to the good, they’ll pull a Bible and feign singing to the clouds; if the wind pushes fascist and Hitler, they will march with the fuehrer just like the Germans; if it pushes both ways, they will do both contradictorily.

Their goal however is evil and deceptive all the same. Obama says one thing with his mouth and has others say other things with his other mouth.

The only way they can reconciliate welfare and being pro-environment is if the ones to go on welfare are slated for slaughter by some kind of assisted suicide of some sort. It’s chosing the sufferance, one of the living dying or one of the dead dying, and they chose the latter. Progressism is about this dance between acting good and evil leading inexorably to a “change” in society reflecting their dying bodies and soul, instead of giving society a chance at life while they die.

The left is adult and yet irresponsible, like the half naked whore, getting it both ways, and yet still demanding to be treated as innocent “human child” while getting “adult authority” rights. The left is this morass of losers and evil people who thrive in hate.

It's about time someone took up the McCarthy cause. They beat him down...but he was right all along. It shows all over our country. The commies are in every office of every branch of our government, in our Universities, in the media and in Hollywood. Pretending it ain't so won't make the fact go away.If it quacks like a duck...

[Obama advisor] "Zbigniew Brzezinski says that the pro-Israel lobby in the US is too powerful, while the slur of anti-Semitism is too readily used whenever its power is called into question."

Terrorists endorse Obama because he hates Israel, no matter what he says in public.

AIPAC is only a small part of US support for Israel. Most Americans supporting Israel never even heard of AIPAC.

So would Hitler, so long as he had a "D" after his name.

However, there are less and less of those suicidal fools as time goes on. Many Jews are finally beginning to wake up, and it is way past time. McCain, if he had ANY smarts, would make a strong pro-Israel speech to AIPAC or some other large gathering of influential Jews. It'd win him many votes, and deny both the votes and lots of money to Obomination.

As for Zbig - one would think that the foreign policy disasters that he and his idiot former boss were responsible for would induce some element of shame, resulting in a case of STFU. But I should know better, we're talking about a Leftist arsewhole.

Zbigniew sounds like he’s picked up the signal from Jimmy Carter that everything can now be blamed on the Jews.
