I don't know if my response to MacDonald's question ever made it through -
if not, let me know. I don't think Richard Becker is anti-Semitic - but I
tried to deal at length with this and other questions in a long response.

> ANSWER -- in the person of Richard Becker -- bends over so far backwards
to avoid being seen as "anti-Semitic" that Richard must have a permanent
bump on the back of his head by now!
> Specifically, they actively deny that the Israel lobby (known to Israelis
as "the Jewish lobby") has any influence over U.S. policy and insist that
Israel is purely an instrument of U.S. imperialism.
> I've challenged them on this a number of times but it's hopeless. Perhaps
if Becker were Jewish (he's not!), he wouldn't feel it necessary to distort
reality to avoid being called "anti-Semitic". But the Zionists really do
have the "goyim" intimidated!
