Israel; the Real Power in the White House; Worth Repeating
This article was published in the most read Israeli Newspaper of Haaretz back in January 2003, but was modified a few times (I don't know how an already published article can be modified).
The article, that was first mentioned in this blog back in January 6, 2003, is still relevant and is still a good indication of the fact that the Washington's war policy is driven by bunch of "Americans by birth, but Israeli at hearts". This is a excerpts:
The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservative intellectuals, most of them Jewish, who are pushing President Bush to change the course of history. Two of them, journalists William Kristol and Charles Krauthammer, say it's possible. But another journalist, Thomas Friedman (not part of the group), is skeptical... .
....In the course of the past year, a new belief has emerged in the town: the belief in war against Iraq. That ardent faith was disseminated by a small group of 25 or 30 neoconservatives, almost all of them Jewish, almost all of them intellectuals (a partial list: Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, William Kristol, Eliot Abrams, Charles Krauthammer), people who are mutual friends and cultivate one another and are convinced that political ideas are a major driving force of history.
Meanwhile it can be seen how wrong their predictions have come to life. and why the US is paying the price for the policy that was driven by the powerful pro-Isrealis in the White House.
