The editor of a Canadian magazine is defending an article that identifies the Jews on a list of 50 leading U.S. neo-conservatives. Even after a deluge of complaints and canceled subscriptions, Kalle Lasn, who edits the journal Adbusters, refuses to back down from his article, “Why Won’t Anyone Say They Are Jewish?” Lasn says it’s important to identify the disproportionately high number of Jewish neo-conservatives because of their disproportionate influence in shaping pro-Israeli American foreign policy. Names on his list include the U.S. deputy defense secretary, Paul Wolfowitz, and intellectual Daniel Pipes. American neo-conservatives “are the most powerful group of people in the world,” Lasn said. “They are intellectual thugs who have the power to start wars and stop wars.”
