An official Iraqi newspaper called Sen. Joseph Lieberman (D-Conn.) an “arrogant Jew.” In a front page editorial Sunday, Al-Thawra, the newspaper of the ruling Ba’ath Party, said Lieberman is “inciting the American administration” against Iraq while also “declaring insolently his support for the Zionist entity.” Lieberman and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) recently signed a letter to President Bush urging him to make Iraq the next target in the U.S.-led war on terrorism.
