By Michael Scheuer, 22-year veteran of the CIA -- The Israel-Firsters try to convince Americans that U.S. and Israeli interests are identical, and so spying on America for Israel and suborning American citizens to commit treason is really an okay and even admirable activity. The Israel-Firsters are clearly guilty of trying to create an environment in which the U.S. public accepts the idea that engaging in espionage against their own country on Israel's behalf is consonant with the duties of American citizenship.
Finally, I wish to directly refute the Israel-Firsters' claim that I "cast aspersions on American Jews". I do not cast aspersions, I forthrightly damn, and pray that God damns, any American Jew, Catholic, Evangelical, Irish, German, Hindu, hermaphrodite, thespian, or otherwise who flogs the insane idea that American and Israeli interests are one and the same. The nation-state of Israel is an intolerable burden to the treasury and security of the United States, and Washington's current relationship with Israel sanctioned by the AIPAC-funded political leaders of both parties is one of several factors that are leading to full-scale American participation in other peoples' religious wars, religious wars that David Horowitz's recent "Islamofascist Awareness Week" manifestly wants to bring to the streets of the United States.
