Since citizenship carries with it a responsibility to be exclusively loyal to one country, the whole concept of dual citizenship and nationality raises questions about which of the dual citizenships have priority. This is extremely important when the two countries have opposing interests. It can be a deadly problem when a dual citizen is in a high position within our American government.
Today's conflicts are centered in the Middle East. America needs to balance foreign policies towards oil producing Arab nations with our goal being peace and stability in the region. This places a burdon on our government to be even-handed in our dealings with the Arab world and Israel. While the Iraq War was waged on lies about Weapons of Mass Destruction and revenge for 911, the real reason has emerged as a well designed global plan to improve the power and leverage of Israel. Added to this policy is yet another potential blow to American interests and security -- the impending War with Iran. This war will be waged for the security of Israel and will be paid for by the blood of American soldiers and the hard-earned money of American citizens whose quality of life is inversely tied to the cost of petrolium.

Recently, in their much lauded paper, The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy, Harvard professor, Stephen Walt, and University of Chicago professor, John Mearsheimer, focused attention on the strong Israeli lobby which has a powerful influence over American foreign policies (see BBC article). They detail the influence that this lobby has exerted, forming a series of international policies which can be viewed as in direct opposition to the interests and security of the American people. These acts and policies are more often than not carried out by US government appointees who hold powerful positions and who are dual American-Israeli citizens. Since the policies they support are often exclusively beneficial to Israel, often to the detriment of America, it has been argued that their loyalties are misdirected.

Can one imagine a Japanese citizen serving in the Pentagon during WWII? Or how about a citizen of the Soviet Union holding a cabinet position in the White House during the Cold War?

Do you need to wonder if there will be an attack on Iran? When will the attack against Iran begin?

Main stream media won't cover these issues. Seeing as how the majority of them are controlled by politics .. they would prefer to steer the general public towards things like "Pop Tarts" (ie. Hollywood gossip on Fox News) and other attention stealing "news". They don't want the American mass to know what really goes on at the top. You people still think we have a democracy? Ha.

The above issues should concern everybody. A teeny country on the other side of the globe affects our country more than people realize. Those are some high profile names listed!

Perhaps it should be asked how many Christians are in positions of high importance in government to get a perspective of the situation. Each one of those Jews has a subordinate position under a Christian.

If your claiming that the Jews control
the government, then the writer is claiming that they are really a race of super people, which I doubt.

Locally, look how many Doctors are Muslim. Does that mean that Muslims are taking over and controlling our health care?

I doubt that all the government officials listed above really had an Israeli parent(s), so that they could claim classic duel citizenship.

On the other hand Israel has always had a "Right to Return" for all Jews, and people of Jewish ancestry world wide. With a stretch of the imagination I guess it could be called Duel Citizenship

Christians in those positions is a scary concept as well. I mean, religion is pretty much that which fuels most wars.

First, where is the separation of church and state?
Second, It's not hard to understand, here is the point made earlier by SecurityIssues, " Can one imagine a Japanese citizen serving in the Pentagon during WWII? Or how about a citizen of the Soviet Union holding a cabinet position in the White House during the Cold War?"
Another example: cited here.

Jonathan Jay Pollard was an American-Israeli citizen who worked for the US government. He is well known because he stole more secrets from the U.S. than has any other spy in American history. During his interrogation Pollard said he felt compelled to put the "interests of my state" ahead of his own. Although as a U.S. Navy counter-intelligence specialist he had a top-secret security clearance, by "my state" he meant the state of Israel.

Literally tens of thousands of Americans holding U.S. passports admit they feel a primary allegiance to the state of Israel. In many instances, these Americans vote in Israeli elections, wear Israeli uniforms and fight in Israeli wars. Many are actively engaged both in the confiscation of Palestinian lands and in the Israeli political system.

Funny you people complain about Jews in high positions. Think about this. Most of you with a serious medical condition, either now or in the future, are going to place your lives into the hands of a Muslim or a Jew. Thinks about that as you slip into the tunnel of last light.

I harbor no ill contempt for people of religion being professionals. I just don't like people using THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS to manipulate their authority in a dictatorial manner. Which is what this thread is discussing.

Religious sway obviously affects foreign policy, and this should not be the case. The above info as stated is reprehensible.

Mike, At last someone has some reading comprehension. The posts are discussing citizenships, not religions. And no, I wouldn't want any Chinese/American or Russian/American DUAL citizens in our Department of Homeland Security. Why Israel?

Yamuck- The reference YOU provided proves my point better than I did. The wikipedia starts with; "Jonathan Jay Pollard (born August 7, 1954 in Galveston, Texas) is a convicted Israeli spy and a former United States Naval civilian intelligence analyst. Pollard waived the right to trial in return for restrictions on sentencing, pleaded guilty and was convicted on one count of spying for Israel,[1] receiving a life sentence in 1986 with a recommendation against parole. Israel publicly denied that Pollard was an Israeli spy until 1998, when he was granted Israeli citizenship.[2] He was incarcerated at the federal penitentiary in Marion, Illinois in solitary confinement for seven years, then transferred to Butner Federal Correctional Institution in North Carolina.[3] Israel has admitted he was a spy for them and wants him released, but the US Government will not do so, saying he caused worldwide damage to US intelligence collection efforts." Thank you.

My quote you were referring to was directed at comment #13. "Funny you people complain about Jews in high positions. Think about this. Most of you with a serious medical condition, either now or in the future, are going to place your lives into the hands of a Muslim or a Jew. Thinks about that as you slip into the tunnel of last light."

I said "I harbor no ill contempt for people of religion being professionals. I just don't like people using THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS to manipulate their authority in a dictatorial manner."

Translated = I do not not harbor ill contemt for Muslim or Jewish doctors ... or any other profession they so choose to do. But I do have a problem when people of those religions USE their relgious faith to manipulize that profession (seen more in politics).

And yes Paulie (You mean like Bush or Ridge or Falwell or all the others who say if you're not evangelical, you are against us and therefore our enemy.) I got a problem with Christians too.

Far to long has RELIGION guided our government (even though there is SUPPOSED to be seperation of the two!

This is about citizens of Israel occupying positions in US Government that are sensitive to our National Security and their influence on policies. This is about Nationalities and allegiances, NOT religion.
