The discourse is changing under our feet. Good piece from Jonathan Wright in Cairo. To wit:

"Obama's position is very precarious. The Jewish lobby warned against
his election, so he has chosen to remain silent (on Gaza)," added Hilal

    On the other hand, as an earlier poster pointed out, the commenters at Obama's transition team site seem remarkably resistant to the Zionist spin. Maybe all hope is not yet dead. (Click the Foreign Relations category.)

    Why don't mainstream media articles name Obama's handlers who are Jewish Zionist explicitly as "Jewish Zionists" ie "Jewish Zionists Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod"? It makes no sense. Imagine if Bush was being advised by comparable Christian Zionist ideologues, such as John Hagee and Pat Robertson. The media would most certainly note their religo-ideological beliefs in any story regarding Israel, and Bush's silence on Israeli aggression. Yet media completely ignore the Obama administrations internal Jewish Zionist camp — and Rahm Emanuel actually served the Israeli government during Gulf War I!

    Really, Obama's silence has nothing to do with "warnings" from the Jewish lobby. It has everything to do with Obama's Jewish Zionist handlers. James Petras recently wrote an excellent, detailed article about exactly how the Jewish Zionists went about co-opting and promoting Obama as their puppet. It really reads like cloak and dagger intrigue out of the Cold War era sponsored by the Soviets. But in this case, it is the Jewish Zionist nation-within-a-nation operatives orchestrating the spying, manipulation and attacks on the US democratic process.

    Why aren’t these people being investigated by the FBI as Israeli spies and operatives serving the Zionist ideological agenda? They are no less of a threat than Soviet agents were, and even more so in that they employ their US citizenship rights on behalf of their cover.

    BTW, what's amazing about the Reuters piece is that, as far as I can tell, it manages to discuss the Arab response to Gaza without a single quote from a Jewish gatekeeper. Remarkable.

    (Reuters, incidentally, is run by Tom Glocer, who is Jewish. Not that it matters.)

    I guess the "M.D., D.Ph., D.Litt., etc., etc." couldn't catch his prey again. Poor fellow, frozen and frustrated somewhere in the USA.
