Israel and the Jewish lobby likely to get embroiled in Congress debate on Syria


Israeli writer Chemi Shalev predicts today in Haartez that Israel and the Jewish Lobby will be putting pressure on congressmen. In practice they will push for a war against Syria.

"Supporters of Israel will likely be told that at this critical juncture, neutrality is a luxury that neither the lobby nor the Administration can afford. Time to put up or shut up, get off the fence and spend some of the precious political capital that Israel supporters have amassed in order to fight in the Washington trenches for something that most Israelis contend is crucial to their national interests."

And the verdict is clear, if you have a powerful Jewish lobby in you country, you don't really need an enemy, you will end up fighting a war with no end...
