Scapegoating Jews had a long tradition: "when things go bad Jews become scapegoats". Petraeus is just stepping up to plate to shove responsibility for the U.S. military failings in the Asian war theater (Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan) with the wide spread antisemitism of these peoples. Petraeus would argue that he's not against Jews or Israel but since most of these peoples hate Jews as long as American is viewed as friendly to Jews and pro-Israel it will be viewed negatively. Most all of the textbooks of these countries (and all of U.S. friends in the Muslim world) vilify Jews. A significant number of their religious leaders repeatedly express the belief that its the will of Allah to see all Jews dead. Jews are considered evil and Synagogues the house of Satan. Since Jews are a tiny minority in the U.S. and Israel is a small country its no great price to pay. He's being a good soldier looking to sacrifice Jews as pawns to save his queen.
