On Trump and Anti-Semitism, a comment by Political Reporter

No American politician can escape the reality of the Israel Lobby! Abe Foxman and Aron David Miller are both integral parts of that Lobby, chronicled in the Walt and Mearsheimer book, and this 2006 excerpt in the London Review of Books: that precipitated a moral/political panic among America’s political class :


Even  Caudillo Trump must pay obedience to the power of that Lobby. Or does he? One wonders whether a billionaire whose political raison d’etre is a political populism and or a ‘Rebellion against The Elites’, financed by his own money, needs to play by the rules of respectable bourgeois politics? His politics are defined by the singular idea and practice of the anti-establishment, what possible pressure could be used to encourage Trump to play ball like every other American politician? Has his daughter become an ardent Zionist?  Or will Trump moderate his positions as his coronation draws near?

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
