The lobby with REAL power

The Bald-Headed Geek asks:"With all of the obsessive focus on the 'power of the Israel Lobby', it's fascinating to me how no one at all talks about the Saudi Lobby?" An excellent question.

More from Noga.

I've been told why. The Saudis aren't Americans (or, in relevant cases I'm sure, Britons), so their influence is quite proper.

It didn't make sense to me, either.

They do, to some extent, but only admiringly. Why? The aura of mystique given off by these men with extremely deep pockets trotting around in 7th century garb with an air of being God's gift to the world by dint of geological forces. Jews, on the other hand, are seen as grubby, grasping escapees from the ghettoes of Europe.

Excellent question indeed.

A good question indeed Bob (he says more or less repeating james's comment....)

Well, what’s the fun in singling out a lobby unless you can also blame the Jews?

"how no one at all talks about the Saudi Lobby?"

The answer should be clear: because the all-powerful Jooish lobby prevents it. For jealousy sake, I guess.
