File Under Disinformation
Such is the grip of his obsession with Israel, that Greg (Jerusalem Prize) Sheridan, foreign editor extraordinaire of The Australian, felt compelled to embed the following sentence in an 'opinion piece' otherwise devoted to North Korean missile testing: "Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad responded [to Obama's outstretched hand] with a speech that contemptuously said the Jews control US foreign policy." (Kim's nuclear reaction, 25/4/09) Presumably he meant Ahmadinejad's Durban II speech. (See my 23/4/09 post Australia Dumps on Durban 2) And presumably he meant this particular sentence in that speech: "Was not the military action against Iraq planned by the Zionists and their allies in the then US administration in complicity with the arms manufacturing countries and the possessors of wealth?" File under disinformation.
