American Jews Are Starting Wars, Jewish Former CIA Spy Valerie Plame Wilson Retweetspdated
| Valerie Plame Wilson landed herself in hot social media water when she tweeted
out a link to a story titled "America's Jews Are Driving America's Wars
" on Thursday without any commentary to explain why she was sharing it.
The article, published in The Unz Review, was published Tuesday
by Philip Giraldi, a former CIA case officer and Army intelligence officer
. Subtitled "Shouldn't they recuse themselves when dealing with the Middle East?," Giraldi argued that American Jews are pushing for war in the Middle East and pointed to Iran in particular, which he said "does not conceivably threaten the United States."
American Jews, according to Giraldi, are faking the threat and dragging politicians and the media down with them. American Jews with an attachment to Israel, he added, should not be allowed anywhere near positions where they might deal with Middle East policy because it would be a "conflict of interest."
So why doesn't anyone say anything? Giraldi has an answer for that too. And it involves a classic anti-Semitic trope about Jews running the media. "Any organization that aspires to be heard on foreign policy knows that to touch the live wire of Israel and American Jews guarantees a quick trip to obscurity," he wrote. "Jewish groups and deep pocket individual donors not only control the politicians, they own and run the media and entertainment industries, meaning that no one will hear about or from the offending party ever again.
