All too predictably, the debate on the US/Israeli relationship has unleashed all too familiar themes. On the one hand, there are those who roll out the ‘Zionist conspiracy’ rubbish about how Jews control the world banking system, the media etc. On the other, the predictable slurs which come from those who cry ‘anti-Semite’ at anyone who dares attack Israel’s (mini)-Imperialist, racist and religious fundamentalist policies. My mailbox now contains a wide variety of the above, plus some unclassifiables.
