One has to admit that the long range thinking of Emanuel Rahm, the imminente grise of Obama, is proven correct. He, Rahm, is like his boss a studious student of History, especially French-British. He well understood that an emerging buddying pressure group among the Academics and the Hollywood Jewish crowd (just ask Noam Khomsky), it will supp power from AIPAC, thus becames less effective. Divide and rule was Palmerstone and Napoleon in their building up of coalition against each other (and still is: look at European Union). Mr Obama is just using his newly found chair of Mother Theresa successor to put AIPAC in the dustbin of History, with the help of Rahm, R. Falk, Walt, Khomsky and many others behind the curtain. It is a new era of relations between the "great global arrobance" and the little lamb of a Land of Israel.
