Do you agree with these comments from Jewish writers on the Iraq war?

"A stronger Israel is very much embedded in the
rationale for war with Iraq. It is a part of the
argument that dare not speak its name, a fantasy
quietly cherished by the neo-conservative faction in the
Bush Administration and by many leaders of the American
The fantasy involves a domino theory. The destruction of
Saddam's Iraq will not only remove an enemy of
long-standing but will also change the basic power
equation in the region. It will send a message to Syria
and Iran about the perils of support for Islamic
terrorists. It will send a message to the Palestinians
too: Democratize and make peace on Israeli terms, or
forget about a state of your own."

Tariq Aziz has a theory. Saddam Hussein's deputy told
the New York Times this week, "The reason for this
warmongering policy toward Iraq is oil and Israel."
Although no one wishes to agree with Tariq Aziz, he has
put succinctly what many people in Washington
The lack of public discussion about the role of Israel
in the thinking of "President Bush" is easier to
understand, but weird nevertheless. It is the
proverbial elephant in the room: Everybody sees it, no
one mentions it. The reason is obvious and admirable:
Neither supporters nor opponents of a war against Iraq
wish to evoke the classic anti-Semitic image of the
king's Jewish advisers whispering poison into his ear
and betraying the country to foreign interests.

"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.
In the course of the past year, a new belief has emerged
in the town (Washington): 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."╩

"In 1996, as Likud Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
prepared to take office, eight Jewish neoconservative
leaders sent him a six-page memo outlining an
aggressive vision of government. At the top of their
list was overthrowing Saddam and replacing him with a
monarch under the control of Jordan.
The neoconservatives sketched out a kind of domino
theory in which the governments of Syria and other Arab
countries might later fall or be replaced in the wake
of Saddam's ouster. They urged Netanyahu to spurn the
Oslo peace accords and to stop making concessions to the
Lead writer of the memo was Perle. Other signatories
were Feith, now undersecretary of defense, and Wurmser,
a senior adviser to John Bolton, undersecretary of
Fred Donner, a professor of Near Eastern history at the
University of Chicago, said he was struck by the
similarities between the ideas in the memo and ideas
now at the forefront of Bush's foreign policy."

If the U.S. gets bogged down with heavy casualties on
both sides, Americans are going to blame big oil and
Zionism for getting them into this mess.
Everybody knows that: The only country that fears Iraq's
WMD's is Israel; American-Jewish neo-conservatives on
the Defence Policy Board (Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz)
planned this war in 1998 and made it Bush Administration
policy; The purpose of the war is to change the balance
of power in the Middle East so Israel can settle the
Palestinian issue on its own terms; and Congress
trembles in fear before the Israeli Lobby, "AIPAC."
At this perilous juncture in US history, there is no
effective opposition because Zionist Jews appear to
control both parties. The Jewish "Anti Defamation
League" considers it a barometer of anti Semitism to
say, "Jews have too much power." But is something anti-
Semitic if it is true? Anti Semitism is racial
prejudice. Zionist power is not a racial prejudice; it
is a fact of life. When a special interest group
hijacks American foreign policy, it is a patriotic duty
to say so.
In recent decades, Zionists have succeeded in making
support for Zionism synonymous with "Jewish." They have
made Israel appear to be a vulnerable country facing
annihilation in a sea of bloodthirsty Arabs. In fact,
Israel has 200-400 nuclear bombs and is one of the most
powerful nations on earth. It has evaded many
opportunities for a just peace because it's secret
agenda is to dominate the region. Israel keeps this
quiet because most Jews, including Israelis, did not
sign on for that.╩╩╩╩╩╩╩╩

"The old adage has it that, when visiting a foreign
country, to ascertain who really runs things, one need
determine only who is spoken about in whispers, if at
all." Judged by this measure, the Jews rule supreme.
Indeed, when I referred to 'Jewish media lords' during
a UNESCO conference in the summer of 2001, the
audience's hearts missed a beat.
The yet-unfought War on Iraq changed this. The American
Ultimatum date was set on 17 March, the Jewish feast of
Purim. Purim, 1991 saw destruction of Iraqi armies and
death of 200,000 Iraqis. Too many coincidences for a
purely American war."
"The powerful pro-Israel lobby in the United States ,
which advances Israeli interests by pushing for U.S.
aid and protection to Israel , and, currently, by
pressing for a war against Iraq , which again will
serve Israeli interests. This lobby has not only helped
control media debate and made congress into 'Israeli
occupied territory', it has seen to it that numerous
officials with 'dual loyalties' occupy strategic
decision-making positions in the Bush administration . . ."

Racist Israel (following prediction was made in 1984!)
"The Zionists who rule Israel and the Zionists in
America have been trying to trick the U.S. into a
Mideast war on the side of Israel. They almost succeeded
when U.S. Marines were sent to Lebanon in 1982. The
blood of the 250 American Marines who died in Lebanon is
dripping from the hands of the Israeli and American
If more Americans are not made aware of the truth about
Zionist Israel, you can be sure that, sooner or later,
those atheists who claim to be God's Chosen People will
trick the U.S. into a Mideast war against the Arabs who
in the past have always been America's best friends.
Interesting, isn't it.
Why are you such a strong supporter of the Iraq War, or need I ask?
