Welll!!.... Am i misreading here??? Chris' point was about the need to make
a  distinction between *anti-imperalist/ progressive Jews* and *Zionist
Jews* in service of US& Isreali imperialism. I am rereading this to say that
not all Jews are Zionists and not all Zionists are Jews. Is it so generous
to make this distinction, Julio brother?

Is Jesse Helms a Jew? I don't know. If not? what is the point of relevance
to Chris' point?

US foreing policy makers have always been Zionist (pro-Isreali) if not
pro-Jew necessarily.  This is not surprising.
