    I'm not %100 sure of the intentions of the original commenter, but save it Yonatan. There is in fact a very powerful lobby in the United States, where presidential candidates have to go and declare their love to a foreign nation. It is within the realm of possibility that some one within the Political Action Comitee (i.e. AIPAC), pressured for a correction to be made (if correction is the right word to use here). Telling people who point this out, that they are on par with the Protocols of Zion, and other anti-semitic gibberish, only serves to mix anti-semitism, with criticism of Israel. And the way things are looking, the over-use of that term for cases where it's a different animal (criticism of Israel, or in the case politicians for Israel), is watering down the meaning the concept. I don't see a conspiracy here, but I may be wrong.
