New Boss Looking The Same As The Old One

This just in: as his first move as president-elect, Barack Obama has tapped no less than Rahm Emanuel to be his chief of staff. For those who don’t remember, Emanuel is a die-hard pro-war, pro-Israel neoliberal, and is even a citizen of that country. His father was a part of the Irgun (Etzel or IZL), a militant Zionist group that operated in Palestine between 1931 and 1948.

This move is of course a nod to the Israel lobby in Washington, clearly stating that nothing will change in U.S. foreign policy as regards that little nuclear powered expansionist police state just south of Lebanon.

And unless we do anything about it, indeed nothing will.
