Dawk v. The Lobby

Well, the Mearsheimer and Walt bandwagon has hit the road, and guess who's leapt on board:-

'When you think about how fantastically successful the Jewish lobby has been, though, in fact, they are less numerous I am told - religious Jews anyway - than atheists and [yet they] more or less monopolise American foreign policy as far as many people can see. So if atheists could achieve a small fraction of that influence, the world would be a better place.'

(via that model of thoughtful and non-triumphalist atheism, Norm)

Yes, our leading purveyor of religiophobic bigotry also has a sideline in racist mythology. What a surprise. The irony is that the Dawk's credibility is founded on the perception that he's a scientist. Which I dare say he was, once upon a time.

Don't worry, it is only he first step in Dawkins' personal evolution. The next one, after an in-depth analysis will be to prove that the Jewish Lobby does not exist. Scientifically, too ;-)
