In May 2013, one half of the famed Jewish investigative journalist “Bernstein and Woodward” team which helped break open the Watergate scandal of the 1970s, 69-year-old Carl Bernstein, told Joe Scarbrough at MSNBC that Jewish neocons pushed president Bush into the 2003 war on Iraq.
“This was an insane war that brought us low economically, morally. We went to war against a guy who had absolutely nothing to do with 9/11. It was a total pretext! It’s explicable and there you go to Cheney, there you go to Bush, there you go to Jewish neocons who wanted to remake the world (for Israel). Maybe I can say that because I’m Jewish,” said Bernstein. Watch the video below.
One cannot argue with Bernstein that only Jews can make such statements in the West. For example, Professor Melvin A. Goodman John Hopkins University), a former CIA analyst and author wrote in February 2013 that lies about Iraqi WMDs were fabricated by Lewis “Scooter” Libby and other Jewish neocons.
The 9-11 Commission member, Philip Zelikow, a Zionist Jew, told an audience at the University of Virginia on September 10, 2002: “Why would Iraq attack America or use nuclear weapons against us? I’ll tell you what I think the real threat (is) and actually has been since 1990 – it’s the threat against Israel. And this is the threat that dare not speak its name, because the Europeans don’t care deeply about that threat, I will tell you frankly. And the American government doesn’t want to lean too hard on it rhetorically, because it is not a popular sell.”
Joshua Muravchik, a Jewish scholar at Israel advocacy groups WINEP and AEI, weote in American Jewish Committee’s mouthpiece, Commentary Magazine (September 2003): “The neoconservatives, it turns out, are also in large proportion Jewish- – and this, to their detractors, constitutes evidence of the ulterior motives that lurk behind the policies they espouse.”
Robert J. Ellisberg wrote in Zionconservative mouthpiece, Haffington Post (June 25, 2009): “The neocon wing of the Republican Party has rarely found a war it doesn’t love to start (finishing, optional), most especially, if they themselves don’t have to risk fighting it. And now, it seems like most conservative Republicans have their trigger fingers itching to start yet another Middle East war (against Iran).”
Leslie H. Gelb, Jewish journalist, author and president emeritus of America’s most powerful pro-Israel advocacy club, the Council on Foreign Relations, wrote in Jewish-owned The Daily Beast (October 19, 2011), that the neocons who gave us clueless wars in Afghanistan and Iraq – are back into power under Obama and setting more clueless wars in the Middle East (Syria, Iran, Lebanon, etc.). In response, Justin Logan, researcher at Jewish Cato Institute, said that neocons had never left the power.
Douglas Kear Murray, is a British journalist, a committed neocon Israel-Firster and author of ‘Neoconservatism Why We Need It’. He was a speaker at Israel American Jewish lobby group AIPAC in January 2013. He told his Jewish audience that Obama is pushing Jews to have dialogue with “terrorist Fatah/Hamas alliance”. In the past, he had claimed that after reading Qur’an he came to the conclusion that “Islam is not religion of peace”.
