Natallie"s belief (#35) that American Jews have kept a low profile on Israel has drawn the charge of antisemitism (Warrior #119, and Vittorio #139). I don't agree with all concerned. First off, I don't see that the charge is warranted. Secondly, I believe Natallie is wrong, and that some American Jews have been very high profile: Perle, Wolfowitz, Abrams, Kristol, and Libby for starters. Perle is the real gem here. His high level Pentagon position and contacts enabled him to push false info on Iraq that helped draw us into this mess. His sponsorship of Chalabi and his sources was largely to support Israel. Chalabi had promised that among his first actions as the head of a reconstituted Iraq would be the recognition of Israel. Low profile indeed! And who knows the ultimate costs for American Jewry.
