If you have a spare hour I'd strongly recommend watching this documentary. It's about the Israeli lobby (AIPAC) and its monetary and political influence in the United States of America. The most interesting feature of this documentary is what Tony Judt says. Judt, himself of secular Jewish parents, speaks very frankly and intelligently of the Israeli problem and identity politics (which can be ascribed to any minority with a strong sense of being historically hard-done-by). His is also the final word, an optimistic albeit highly unlikely sentiment. But the singular most disturbing feature of this documentary is a statement made by an independent Evangelical pastor called John Hagee about ten minutes into the video. His mission is surely the work of the Devil.
