Wesley Said It

Wesley Clark thinks "New York money people" are a major factor pushing us into war with Iran. I can't argue with that.

When we asked him [Wes Clark] what made him so sure the Bush administration was headed in this [bombing Iran] direction, he replied: "You just have to read what's in the Israeli press. The Jewish community is divided but there is so much pressure being channeled from the New York money people to the office seekers."

At one point Melinda reminded him that she was taking down everything he said (a fact that would have been hard to miss, since she was taking notes on a not-inconspicuous legal pad). His response: 'Yes, I know." For Clark, this is the biggest foreign policy issue facing the U.S. "I'm worried about the surge," he said. "But I'm worried about this even more."

I guess we have another anti-semite to add to the ever-growing list.

I should add that Mr. Clark expressly stated that the Jewish communitee was divided on the issue, which is accurate.

Daily Kos has a post on this issue here.

But the Republican Jewish Coalition is not happy about these comments - link. More comments here.
