Jewish establishment gives White House cover to criticize Israel–just not on Palestine
(Mondoweiss) -- by Alex Kane --
The most salient lesson from the ruckus Jeffrey Goldberg and other Jewish groups created over the ridiculous ads about American Jewry and Israelis was voiced on Twitter by Max Blumenthal:
American Jews are shocked by ads urging Israelis to return to Israel but don't seem to care that expelled Palestinians can't return at all.The mainstream of American Jewry turned in anger on the Netanyahu government, but it wasn't on the central moral issue they should be directing their anger at: the systematic denial of Palestinian human rights.
No surprise, unfortunately. And it happened again over the weekend when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton voiced concern over the sorry state of Israeli democracy, but made no mention of the anti-democratic nature of Israeli rule over Palestinians. The reason why Clinton could voice that concern--and why U.S. ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro criticized a bill that would place restrictions on NGOs--was because they had the political cover to do so from Ruth Marcus, the Anti-Defamation League and the American Jewish Committee. There hasn't been much noise from those quarters about Clinton's criticisms of Israeli democracy.
But now turn to the comments made by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and U.S. ambassador to Belgium Howard Gutman. They were mildly critical of Israel's policies towards the Palestinians--stress on the word mild--but now the Israel lobby is on the attack. The Anti-Defamation League has put out a statement saying they are "deeply troubled" by Panetta's comments.

Chris Moore comments:
It's amazing that these wealthy, neo-fascist, U.S. Jewish Zionists have been able to fly under the radar for so long, playing the anti-Semitism card for decades to ward off their critics. But now that the U.S is falling to pieces thanks to their fascist warmongering and bankster racketeering (in coalition with their sub-human, Zionist-collaborating, Globalist goy partners in crime) and Israel is feeling the squeeze, they're warning their Levant Zionist brethern: don't mess with us, or we'll throw you under the bus.
And they claim the Jewish Bolshevik elites didn't throw the Jewish peasants to the Commies when the sh*t started hitting the fan...and they claim the Zionists didn't throw the holocausted Jews to the Nazis...
When are average Jews going to wise up and realize their money-worshipping, Judeofascist "leadership" is a nest of vipers?
When are average Americans going to wise up and realize their neo-fascist Globalist leadership is a nest of vipers?
We remove the 1% across the board, including 95% of the U.S. Congress, and our problems come to an end very quickly...we don't, and the 99% can kiss its own asses goodbye.
