Robertson and the Jews

CREDIT:

Since Rudy Giuliani is the unofficial candidate of America’s Jewish hawks and Israel hardliners, I’m searching for signs of recognition from those quarters that his new best friend Pat Robertson seems to be a wild-eyed crackpot who believes that a conspiracy of Jewish Illuminati are behind most of the world’s problems.

So far I’m seeing nothing. J-Pod at Commentary and Bill Kristol in The Weekly Standard both downplay the significance of the endorsement in electoral terms, which I think is their way of signalling disdain for Robertson, but hardly gets at the crux of the matter.
