The same anti-Semitic tripe

Commentary » Blog Archive » Re: Klein and Sullivan: "Andrew Sullivan tries to put the best face possible on Joe Klein’s venom by stating that all Klein did was point out “the increasingly obvious fact that the Iraq war was in part launched to assist Israel (even though many Israelis were against it).” But of course that’s not what Klein did at all– he singled out Jews and accused them of not acting in their country’s interests but at the behest of a foreign power, Israel. What’s more, he didn’t have the intellectual honesty to say that he was making that accusation — it was just coming up, you see. You can dress it up any way you please or try to excuse it however you like, but it is the same anti-Semitic tripe that is recycled century after century."
