I am not Jewish but...

On March 4, 2009, Rupert Murdoch chairman and CEO of News Corporation, gave a speech upon receiving the National Human Relations Award of the American Jewish Committee. Here is a link to the Jerusalem Post and the adaptation of the speech. It is particularly ironic that the support for Jews and Israel should come from the mouth of a person who for many Jews represents all they hate about the right: Fox News, The Weekly Standard, The Wall Street Journal and the New York Post.

What is it about liberal Jews that makes them ally themselves with those who seek to destroy them? At a time when Israel is facing some of its most dangerous challenges and international isolation we should be embracing those who realize that Israel is the proverbial canary in the coal mine. The way Israel goes is the way the West goes. Who says so? Murdoch does.

Read the article and spend a couple of hours a week listening the Fox News Chanel.
