"...Let's start out by acknowledging that what happened during Vice President Biden's trip last week — the announcement of new housing starts in East Jerusalem — was an affront to the United States. I believe Israel has every right to do what it is doing, but the view of the visiting representative of the administration is that what it is doing is wrong and injurious to future prospects for peace, and this conflict of visions is not going to be resolved. Biden was embarrassed, his visit overshadowed, and expressions of diplomatic dismay appropriate as a result..."Podhoretz then goes on to exaggerate the fury of the Obama administration's reaction, which given the degree of insult, could best be described as wimpy (I seriously doubt Hillary Clinton reacted the way Podhoretz claims, as follows):
"...Hillary Clinton called up Bibi Netanyahu on Friday and, if one reads between the lines in the reporting on their conversation, basically screamed at him for 45 minutes. Then her spokesman went out and told the world she had done so, and used startlingly violent language — calling the announcement a "deeply negative signal." That is the kind of talk a country uses against an enemy, and that is why the reaction to it from the Jewish community has been so stark. AIPAC issued a statement the likes of which I'm not sure we've ever seen before, a directly confrontational take on the administration..."Hence, having established that the Obama administration has undertaken allegedly unprecedented rhetorical criticism of Israel, Podhoretz then goes on to urge rich Jewish donors to withhold their political "donations" (which in our corrupt system amounts to the purchase of government policy) from the Democratic Party, with an unspoken corollary that they should go through the corrupt neocon Right to purchase government policy favorable to their Zionist agenda instead:
"...It's no secret that a wildly disproportionate part of the Democratic donor base is Jewish. While Jews are almost certain to continue to vote lopsidedly for Democrats, that doesn't mean Jewish donors are going to open their checkbooks as widely as they have in the past three election cycles. A diminution in Jewish enthusiasm for Obama and the Democrats is a problem for them. This is not a good moment to be picking fights on an issue of major emotional concern to a key Democratic constituency, even if you know that many of its members are not disposed to support the building program..."There is one positive component to the fact that Zionists are such megalomaniacal "big shots" that they simply can't help their own nakedly craven appeals, manipulations and chicanery of the type that has brought this country so low, nor contain their avaricious desire to degrade the American system beyond all respectability and hope for salvation: their unabashed corruption lays bare the morally and ethically bankrupt obsequiousness of the modern political class as it panders to the absolute worst elements of society in exchange for a few pieces of silver wrapped in a "political donation" envelope. It's not enough for Zionists to corrupt any lingering hint of Christian ethos of character and integrity within the systems they infiltrate and attack, but ultimately their egomania drives them to also make it known that it is they who are behind its degradation, and that anyone who doesn't like it can go take a flying leap.
Both the Democratic Party and the neocon Right have a big problem, because they have each been so long in bed with Zionist anti-Christians who are today emboldened to lower their masks further and further out of sheer chutzpah and megalomania that the the revelation of the fact of their common corruption of both ethics and character, and their agenda of Jewish supremacism, is all but inevitable.
