Brzezinski: Obama supporter accuses Jewish lobby members of McCarthyism

A foreign policy expert consulted by Senator Barack Obama, the leading contender for the Democratic presidential nomination, has accused members of the American Jewish establishment of "McCarthyism" in its attitude towards critics of Israel.

Zbigniew Brzezinski, a former national security adviser, said that the pro-Israel lobby in the US was too powerful, while the slur of anti-Semitism was too readily used whenever its power was 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 Jewish lobby group – of obstructing peace efforts.

AIPAC owns MCain

A sad day for the Republic when all of our Presidential Candidates, with the exception of Ron Paul, suck up to the Israeli Lobby. A few days ago these Zionist Israeli First folks gave McCain a standing ovation for his tough talk about Iran. (see Huffpost). Of course, one BIG reason for Ron Paul not being invited (all others accepted the order to appear) and being ignored by the media is the ownership of the media. He is not at all welcome among dual-citizen AIPAC folks, as he has said that we should stop pumping our tax-money into Israel (where some of it returns in the pockets of Zionist lobbyists). God! That our nation should today be committed to securing and expanding the indefinite boundaries of the "Promised Land" (promised about 3,000 years ago) is simply insane. Of course, not all Jewish people are Zionists, and in fact many have and continue to stand against the land-grabbers who, in the name of the Jewish Nation, are preparing to draw us into another war -- this time with Iran. The Jewish folk who resist militant Zionism are to be honored for their integrity and intelligence. They well understand that being an American means simply to recognize America as your only country. Not a difficult concept, but evidently elusive to such pin-heads as McLieberman (and such lunatics as their pal, Hagee).


It's tough to tell

where Obama really stands on any issue! A good video to watch is this, http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2894821400057137878 He is in it and seems pretty tight with Aipac. Brzezinski is a pretty dangerous liason, regardless, he is not just B.O.'s supporter, he is his foreign policy advisor, former head of Trilateral Commission, CFR, etc., the list of his credentials goes on, and it's not very appealing.

nowadays hides behind the "you're a bigot if you don't agree with me, no matter what I do" mentality.
Willie Randolph just tried to pull the same bull; blubbering about how he was taking heat,not because he was doing a really crappy job, but because he's African American. Always being a victim relieves the entity of responsibility and doesn't hurt their precious self-esteem
Aipac are lobbyists. Their only reason for existence is to influence. You know of a government lobby that exists for any other reason? So Aipac is too good at it. I'd like to hear Obama say that the goal of all lobbies is to have as much (and more) influence than Aipac and then call for an abolishment of them.
