Was this written by Joe Klein or Ron Paul?
And the problem with a Likudnik view is what, exactly?
Oh, right, because that would be warmongering or some crap.

I recently made a private vow not to use the term Israel Firster again,
BS at the beginning, if he made a "vow" not to use the term, he wouldn't use it. I suspect the accusations of antisemitism against MediaMatters and CAP were the issue.
for two reasons: its derogatory (and it was, initially, my vituperative response to being called anti-Israel by assorted neoconservative blowhards)
An admission of using a derogatory term against Jewish and Christian supporters of Israel
and its inaccuratemost of those who are, I believe, unduly aggressive about Israels national security believe that the national security of Israel and the U.S. are identical.
An admission that his use of the term was inaccurate, simply a convenient libel that gets the anti-Israel left excited. Not to mention Jewhaters.
Quality guy, this Joe Klein. I can see why he's at Time's Swampland. Nasty slimey things in the swamp.
In Joe Klein’s world Israel is the bad guy, and Iran is the good guy? What Iran does is never considered, “saber rattling.”
Did you find that junk ... in a swamp?
Yeh Joe maybe Israel will carry our water again like they did in Iraq in 1981. What makes Adelson worse than Mitt’s super pac? Newt Gingrich was supporting Israel before Adelson started supporting Newt. Nothing wrong with backing a guy who agrees with you. Thats what all of us are doing on a small scale.
What is wrong with that? Go Newt! Israel is a sovereign country. They have every right to do as they see fit to protect their country from aggression.
The US has the same right, of course. Except you'd never know it with the Moslem in the White House.
Joe Klein stated in the article that Israel was the only item on Mr. Adelson’s agenda, that is not true. In the Forbes magazine article Mr. Adelson stated that he was concerned about the “socialist style economy we’ve experienced for the past four years” and the “redistribution of wealth is the push for more socialism and to more of the government controlling people’s lives”
He sounds pretty Conservative to me and not just in because of one issue.
This Joe Klein (whose ugly mug can be seen in the PBS Clinton documentary broadcast the last two nights), upset and jealous that a Jewish conservative (Sheldon Adelson) is now stealing media attention from the Jewish Left, is way off base in his presumption that Newt Gingrich is Adelson's puppet with respect to Israel and Iran. The fact is that Gingrich has always been a staunch supporter of Israel's using any means of preserving her very existence against Arab and Islamic threats, from long before Adelson entered the picture.
Klein's quoting from the New York Times to support his position hardly lends any credibility to the thrust of his piece.
