Just like a 300-pound gorilla in the living room

The 2008 election will, of course, change the balance of the US Senate. In the meantime, ’til then, we are stuck with Lieberman of Connecticut. Let’s call it the way it is – Senator Lieberman is a Jew and as such is fundamentally in favor of Bush’s war against Iraq.

He’s not alone in that – most Jews in this country favor our one-sided support of Israel and the voters of Connecticut are no exception. Having failed to win the Democratic Party’s nomination as their candidate in ’06, he ran as an Independent, and with the large Jewish vote in Connecticut, he pulled it off. Now he threatens to join the Republican Party if the Democrats’ anti-Bush policy on Iraq continues.

Face up to it, America – we’re fighting this war as the surrogate of the State of Israel. More than 3,100 US combat deaths were direct substitutes for Israeli soldier deaths. You may not want to accept this, but it is a fact.

How long are we to put up with this? The correct Democratic majority in the House has certainly fallen far short – and the Senate (with Lieberman) is hopeless! Our ridiculous support of Israel is the 300-pound gorilla in the living room – nobody wants to acknowledge it! What’s next? Iran!
