Here's Something Depressing:

Richard Dawkins says: "When you think about how fantastically successful the Jewish lobby has been, though, in fact, they are less numerous I am told - religious Jews anyway - than atheists and [yet they] more or less monopolise American foreign policy as far as many people can see. So if atheists could achieve a small fraction of that influence, the world would be a better place."

At best, Dawkins has used extremely loose language, and merely meant to say that AIPAC and such have disproportionate influence over U.S. policy with regard to Israel, and he wishes atheists had similar power. But when a British blogger calls him on it, instead of defening Dawkins as engaging in hyperbole in an informal interview, many of the comments basically say, "Dawkins is right, Jews do control American foreign policy." Sheesh!
