After the Six Day War in 1967 Dennis Ross appears to have made the transition from secular to religious Jew and in 2002 he co-founded the Kol Shalom synagogue in Rockville Md.(1) Not surprisingly, he is considered a strong supporter of Israel. Nevertheless, knowing the world as it is and not how we would like it to be, being pro-Israel is hardly going to exclude you from government service in the good old “US of A”. On the contrary, Dennis has worked in one capacity or another for Carter and Reagan, for George the Elder and George the Younger and for Billy boy Clinton. Yes it would appear that our Dennis is a very busy bee and while serving his country, and we all know which country I am talking about, he has also rendered his services to various “high powered” Zionists think tanks, including the ‘Jewish People Planning Institute’, whiich is based in Jerusalem.
Of course, Dennis has the “perfect” curriculum vitae and it was to be no more than expected that he was in line for a wee job when the “hype” man took over from Georgie; Dennis is the Secretary of State’s advisor on Iran. That’s right, while Rahm ‘Rambo’ Emanuel, in his role as Obama’s Chief of Staff, can prevent information from getting to the President, Dennis whispers all sorts of drivel into Hillary Clinton’s ears and, believe me, if there is one person who doesn’t have to ask ‘Rambo’ for permission to talk to the President then it is Hillary. Now I have no illusions about Obama, he has got himself a wee job and he has set his family up for life, if not for generations. Nevertheless, even if the “hype” man was thinking of being an honest broker in the Middle East, which he is not, but that’s not the point, even if he was, you have to consider this; Dennis has written a book called ‘Myths, illusions, and Peace’, with the ‘Jerusalem Post’s’ David Makovsky, and in that book he says that “the United States will not make progress toward peace in the Middle East with the Obama administration’s new plan.”(2) Now, maybe I have misunderstood something here, but is Obama not his boss? Of course, there are all sorts of answers to that question and I am sure that “our” ‘Dennis the menace”, a man who is against a two state solution and who doesn’t want the settlements dismantled, feels as much at home in the “hype” man’s administration as he did when working for Jimmy or Ronnie or George Sr. or Billy or George Jr.
