According to JTA:

Pro-'surge' group is almost all Jewish

Published: 08/24/2007

Four of five members of the board of a campaign promoting President Bush's policies in the Iraq war are Republican Jews.

The board of "Freedom's Watch" includes Ari Fleischer, Bush's former press secretary; Matt Brooks, the executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition; Bradley Blakeman, a senior White House staffer in Bush's first term; and Mel Sembler, a longtime RJC leader and former ambassador to Rome.

Brooks told JTA that the fifth member, William Weidner, a casino operator in Las Vegas, is not Jewish. However, Weidner's wife, Lynn, is Jewish and is active in that city's federation. Blakeman is the group's president.

Brooks said it would be a mistake to regard the group as having a Jewish direction.

"It's a coincidence that several of the board members are Jewish," he said, noting that half of the donors contributing to the group's first $15 million ad campaign are not Jewish.

The ad blitz will promote Bush's "surge" policy in Iraq ahead of September, when Congress is set to assess the success of the influx of additional U.S. troops into Iraq.

Anyway, Those who called it "war for Israel" didn't go wrong!-even Israeli friend W. Clark once admitted " jewish NYorkers push war against Iran"!

God Save us:rolleyes:
I have never heard a convincing argument for why Israel-loving Jews would pressure the U.S. to act on its behalf when Israel is perfectly capable of defending itself, and has done so in the past.

USMC, I don't really think it's anti-Semitism to point out that Jews are probably overrepresented among the ranks of neoconservatives, any more than it's "Islamophobic" (a joke of a word) to point out that the vast majority of modern terrorists are Muslims.
All I'm saying is that I thought it was necessary to warn you considering some of the posts you made here today.
