All of us who have been involved in the organized Jewish community KNOW first hand the close relationship of Malcolm Hoenlein and Netanyu and Malcolm and the ZOA rightwing crowd for that matter. That we have all tolerated it for years is our shame and indicative of our institutional cowardice. That the Israeli and Jewish press don't blow his cover is either because he serves as useful right wing pressure on the US government or because the liberal Jewish majority are reluctant to take the issue on. Eric Yoffe is the leader of American Jewery's largest constituency -- lets see if he now follows up his words and vote with real action and demand a change in professional leadership. I hope so!
