IW, come on, be honest. Look at who owns the major, mainstream media in the US ... NYT, WP, etc. They are facts. You don't need to be an anti-Semite to acknowledge facts. You do need to be be either ignorant or dishonest not to. However, as I mentioned in my earlier post, due to the variety of opinions present among Jews, that fact in itself doesn't necessarily stifle debate. I'd be more critical of the power of the lobbies like AIPAC than the media. Any nation ruled by lobby cannot possibly consider itself fully democratic, but closer to an oligarchy, since only the richest can afford to buy politicians. In this case, due to the success of US Jews, it's a fair comment to say US foreign policy is at least strongly influenced, if not controlled, by the Jewish community. But I'm not saying that's wrong: Any community would do that, if it were to their advantage, and if they were able to. Its just that (so far), Jews have been the most successful at playing that game.
