Antisemites throughout history have pointed to a "conspiracy of Jews" trying to control the World. The neocon "cabal" accusation, usually leveled at Wolfowitz, Feith, Irving Kristol and the like has this underlying feel to it, derived from the infamous Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a well known Russian Tsarist antisemitic tract. Honestly, this is such an audacious bit of chutzpah -- the remarkable, repeating and effective conspiracy seems to be clearly in the other direction. Psychiatrists call this transferance, I think, when you attribute your own behavior incorrectly to somebody else because your inaccurate interpretation of events is colored by your perspective. For another example of a sizeable antisemitic conspiracy round the globe to try to isolate, condemn, even annihilate this rather small group of people, I recommend to you this op-ed piece from today's New York Sun, which story will almost certainly be ignored or missed by the mainstream media.
