Christian Zionists pipe new hasbara line (glass houses)

on 20 Comments

I saw this over at Foreign Policy. David Brog of CUFI argues that Americans have no right to criticize Israel because of Fallujah operation in Iraq. Glass houses, etc. I suspect we’ll hear more of this. My two reactions: first, the thing was probably ghost written, because no CUFI member could write an op-ed by himself. (Too cynical perhaps?) Second, I don’t think we would have ended up in Iraq without Israel, the lobby, etc–the Iraq war dovetailed with the effort to convince Americans our struggles were one and the same.

I wonder if this bit of hasbara will take root. I really don’t want to argue that American troops behave better than Israelis– because I’m not sure they do.
