Whoa! Nice post Sherlock! No, you are not a nut and thank-you for researching 'that article'.
'The article' opens a big ol' can of worms IMHO. I can certainly appreciate those of the Jewish faith being very sensitive to its claims. If I were Jewish I would probably be offended. However, as 'the article' claims, there is no denying the powerful influence of an Israeli lobby on the US government.
The way I like to look at things is that if you are a minority, any minority, you have to look out for your interests - otherwise you may be steamrollered by the majority. Jews have a LONG history of being persecuted, and as a result are a very tough, I would say, brilliant, minority. That some of this diverse minority should be found in positions of power should surprise no one. A case can be made for influence from Jewish individuals in positions of power. Whether these individuals act as a cohesive 'group' is another question entirely. Personally I find the 'group' thesis less than compelling.
However going from 'influence' to saying that 9/11 was part of a 'Zionist conspiracy' is a stretch to say the least, definitely hurtful to most American Jews and likely utter bullshit.
Just my $.02.
P.S. to TE - mjkst said that?? Wow.
