A Look at The 'Powerful Jewish Lobby'
by Mark Weber

For decades Israel has violated well established precepts of 
international law and defied numerous United Nations resolutions in its
occupation of conquered lands, in extra-judicial killings, and in its 
repeated acts of military aggression.

Most of the world regards Israel's policies, and especially its 
oppression of Palestinians, as outrageous and criminal. This 
international consensus is reflected, for example, in numerous UN 
resolutions condemning Israel, which have been approved with 
overwhelming majorities.

"The whole world," United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan recently
said, "is demanding that Israel withdraw [from occupied Palestinian 
territories]. I don't think the whole world ... can be wrong."[note 1]

Only in the United States do politicians and the media still fervently 
support Israel and its policies. For decades the US has provided Israel
with crucial military, diplomatic and financial backing, including more
than $3 billion each year in aid.

Why is the U.S. the only remaining bastion of support for Israel?

Bishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa, who was awarded the 1984 Nobel 
Peace Prize, has candidly identified the reason: "The Israeli 
government is placed on a pedestal [in the US], and to criticize it is 
to be immediately dubbed anti-Semitic," he said. "People are scared in 
this country, to say wrong is wrong because the Jewish lobby is 
powerful -- very powerful."[note 2]

Bishop Tutu spoke the truth. Although Jews make up only about three 
percent of the US population, they wield immense power and influence --
vastly more than any other ethnic or religious group.

As Jewish author and political science professor Benjamin Ginsberg has 
pointed out:[note 3]

Since the 1960s, Jews have come to wield considerable influence in 
American economic, cultural, intellectual and political life. Jews 
played a central role in American finance during the 1980s, and they 
were among the chief beneficiaries of that decade's corporate mergers 
and reorganizations. Today, though barely two percent of the nation's 
population is Jewish, close to half its billionaires are Jews. The 
chief executive officers of the three major television networks and the
four largest film studios are Jews, as are the owners of the nation's 
largest newspaper chain and the most influential single newspaper, the 
New York Times ... The role and influence of Jews in American politics 
is equally marked ...

Jews are only three percent of the nation's population and comprise 
eleven percent of what this study defines as the nation's elite. 
However, Jews constitute more than 25 percent of the elite journalists 
and publishers, more than 17 percent of the leaders of important 
voluntary and public interest organizations, and more than 15 percent 
of the top ranking civil servants.

Stephen Steinlight, former Director of National Affairs of the American
Jewish Committee, similarly notes the "disproportionate political 
power" of Jews, which is "pound for pound the greatest of any 
ethnic/cultural group in America." He goes on to explain that "Jewish 
economic influence and power are disproportionately concentrated in 
Hollywood, television, and in the news industry."[note 4]

Two well-known Jewish writers, Seymour Lipset and Earl Raab, pointed 
out in their 1995 book, Jews and the New American Scene:[note 5]

During the last three decades Jews [in the United States] have made up 
50 percent of the top two hundred intellectuals ... 20 percent of 
professors at the leading universities ... 40 percent of partners in 
the leading law firms in New York and Washington ... 59 percent of the 
directors, writers, and producers of the 50 top-grossing motion 
pictures from 1965 to 1982, and 58 percent of directors, writers, and 
producers in two or more primetime television series.

The influence of American Jewry in Washington, notes the Israeli daily 
Jerusalem Post, is "far disproportionate to the size of the community, 
Jewish leaders and U.S. official acknowledge. But so is the amount of 
money they contribute to [election] campaigns." One member of the 
influential Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish 
Organizations "estimated Jews alone had contributed 50 percent of the 
funds for [President Bill] Clinton's 1996 re-election campaign."[note 6]

"It makes no sense at all to try to deny the reality of Jewish power 
and prominence in popular culture," acknowledges Michael Medved, a 
well-known Jewish author and film critic. "Any list of the most 
influential production executives at each of the major movie studios 
will produce a heavy majority of recognizably Jewish names."[note 7]

One person who has carefully studied this subject is Jonathan J. 
Goldberg, now editor of the influential Jewish community weekly 
Forward. In his 1996 book, Jewish Power, he wrote:[note 8]

In a few key sectors of the media, notably among Hollywood studio 
executives, Jews are so numerically dominant that calling these 
businesses Jewish-controlled is little more than a statistical 
observation ...

Hollywood at the end of the twentieth century is still an industry with
a pronounced ethnic tinge. Virtually all the senior executives at the 
major studios are Jews. Writers, producers, and to a lesser degree 
directors are disproportionately Jewish -- one recent study showed the 
figure as high as 59 percent among top-grossing films.

The combined weight of so many Jews in one of America's most lucrative 
and important industries gives the Jews of Hollywood a great deal of 
political power. They are a major source of money for Democratic 

Reflecting their role in the American media, Jews are routinely 
portrayed as high-minded, altruistic, trustworthy, compassionate, and 
deserving of sympathy and support. While millions of Americans readily 
accept such stereotyped imagery, not everyone is impressed. "I am very 
angry with some of the Jews," complained actor Marlon Brando during a 
1996 interview. "They know perfectly well what their responsibilities 
are ... Hollywood is run by Jews. It's owned by Jews, and they should 
have a greater sensitivity about the issue of people who are 
suffering."[note 9]

A Well-Entrenched Factor
The intimidating power of the "Jewish lobby" is not a new phenomenon, 
but has long been an important factor in American life.

In 1941 Charles Lindbergh spoke about the danger of Jewish power in the
media and government. The shy 39-year-old -- known around the world for
his epic 1927 New York to Paris flight, the first solo trans-Atlantic 
crossing -- was addressing 7,000 people in Des Moines, Iowa, on 
September 11, 1941, about the dangers of US involvement in the war then 
raging in Europe. The three most important groups pressing America into
war, he explained, were the British, the Jews, and the Roosevelt 

Of the Jews, he said: "Their greatest danger to this country lies in 
their large ownership and influence in our motion pictures, our press, 
our radio, and our government." Lindbergh went on:

... For reasons which are understandable from their viewpoint as they 
are inadvisable from ours, for reasons which are not American, [they] 
wish to involve us in the war. We cannot blame them for looking out for
what they believe to be their own interests, but we must also look out 
for ours. We cannot allow the natural passions and prejudices of other 
peoples to lead our country to destruction.

In 1978, Jewish American scholar Alfred M. Lilienthal wrote in his 
detailed study, The Zionist Connection:[note 10]

How has the Zionist will been imposed on the American people?... It is 
the Jewish connection, the tribal solidarity among themselves and the 
amazing pull on non-Jews, that has molded this unprecedented power ... 
In the larger metropolitan areas, the Jewish-Zionist connection 
thoroughly pervades affluent financial, commercial, social, 
entertainment, and art circles.

As a result of the Jewish grip on the media, wrote Lilienthal, news 
coverage of the Israel-Palestine conflict in American television, 
newspapers and magazines is relentlessly sympathetic to Israel. This is
manifest, for example, in the misleading portrayal of Palestinian 
"terrorism." As Lilienthal put it: "One-sided reportage on terrorism, 
in which cause is never related to effect, was assured because the most
effective component of the Jewish connection is probably that of media 

One-Sided 'Holocaust' History
The Jewish hold on cultural and academic life has had a profound impact
on how Americans look at the past. Nowhere is the well entrenched 
Judeocentric view of history more obvious than in the "Holocaust" media
campaign, which focuses on the fate of Jews in Europe during World War II.

Israeli Holocaust historian Yehuda Bauer, a professor at Hebrew 
University in Jerusalem, has remarked:[note 11]

Whether presented authentically or inauthentically, in accordance with 
the historical facts or in contradiction to them, with empathy and 
understanding or as monumental kitsch, the Holocaust has become a 
ruling symbol of our culture ... Hardly a month goes by without a new 
TV production, a new film, a new drama, new books, prose or poetry, 
dealing with the subject, and the flood is increasing rather than 

Non-Jewish suffering simply does not merit comparable attention. 
Overshadowed in the focus on Jewish victimization are, for example, the
tens of millions of victims of America's World War II ally, Stalinist 
Russia, along with the tens of millions of victims of China's Maoist 
regime, as well as the 12 to 14 million Germans, victims of the flight 
and expulsion of 1944-1949, of whom some two million lost their lives.

The well-financed Holocaust media and "educational" campaign is 
crucially important to the interests of Israel. Paula Hyman, a 
professor of modern Jewish history at Yale University, has observed: 
"With regard to Israel, the Holocaust may be used to forestall 
political criticism and suppress debate; it reinforces the sense of 
Jews as an eternally beleaguered people who can rely for their defense 
only upon themselves. The invocation of the suffering endured by the 
Jews under the Nazis often takes the place of rational argument, and is 
expected to convince doubters of the legitimacy of current Israeli 
government policy."[note 12]

Norman Finkelstein, a Jewish scholar who has taught political science 
at City University of New York (Hunter College), says in his book, The 
Holocaust Industry, that "invoking The Holocaust" is "a ploy to 
delegitimize all criticism of Jews."[note 13] "By conferring total 
blamelessness on Jews, the Holocaust dogma immunizes Israel and 
American Jewry from legitimate censure ... Organized Jewry has 
exploited the Nazi holocaust to deflect criticism of Israel's and its 
own morally indefensible policies." He writes of the brazen "shakedown"
of Germany, Switzerland and other countries by Israel and organized 
Jewry "to extort billions of dollars." "The Holocaust," Finkelstein 
predicts, "may yet turn out to be the 'greatest robbery in the history 
of mankind'."

Jews in Israel feel free to act brutally against Arabs, writes Israeli 
journalist Ari Shavit, "believing with absolute certitude that now, 
with the White House, the Senate and much of the American media in our 
hands, the lives of others do not count as much as our own."[note 14]

Admiral Thomas Moorer, former Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff,
has spoken with blunt exasperation about the Jewish-Israeli hold on the
United States:[note 15]

I've never seen a President -- I don't care who he is -- stand up to 
them [the Israelis]. It just boggles the mind. They always get what 
they want. The Israelis know what is going on all the time. I got to 
the point where I wasn't writing anything down. If the American people 
understood what a grip those people have got on our government, they 
would rise up in arms. Our citizens certainly don't have any idea what 
goes on.

Today the danger is greater than ever. Israel and Jewish organizations,
in collaboration with this country's pro-Zionist "amen corner," are 
prodding the United States -- the world's foremost military and 
economic power -- into new wars against Israel's enemies. As the French
ambassador in London recently acknowledged, Israel -- which he called 
"that shitty little country" -- is a threat to world peace. "Why should
the world be in danger of World War III because of those people?," he 
said.[note 16]

To sum up: Jews wield immense power and influence in the United States. 
The "Jewish lobby" is a decisive factor in US support for Israel. 
Jewish-Zionist interests are not identical to American interests. In 
fact, they often conflict.

As long as the "very powerful" Jewish lobby remains entrenched, there 
will be no end to the systematic Jewish distortion of current affairs 
and history, the Jewish-Zionist domination of the U.S. political 
system, Zionist oppression of Palestinians, the bloody conflict between
Jews and non-Jews in the Middle East, and the Israeli threat to peace.
