Safe Mode: On
Anshel Pfeffer / Jews may be caught between Obama and Netanyahu . By Anshel Pfeffer

It was hard not to hear the Jewish-American establishment's collective sigh of relief last Friday, when the U.S. government announced it would be boycotting the United Nations human rights conference Durban 2. Not only was this the fulfillment of quiet pre-election promises by Barack Obama's advisors, it was also a major signal, proving that the new administration, which had initially caused concern by sending two diplomats to a Durban 2 preparatory meeting, has its heart in the right place. But it would be much too early to sound the all-clear.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's visit to the region this week has been a significant indicator of what we can expect from Israel-U.S. relations in the coming months. The implications could be a major realignment in how major Jewish organizations express their support for Israel, as well as how they relate to their own governments.

  • To hell with American Jewish influence in the US! Hell they shamefully don't pull their weight in the U.S. Military,,More American Muslim's serve the U.S. Military overwhelmingly than American Jews per capita!
    No surprise at all, especially in front line Combat Units(GRUNTS).
    Between American Jew's and their influence throw in the Rothchild Family and their world wide influence the US and the rest of the world is fuked!

    Monetary and political support for Israel(which does not exist until More..
