Cindy Sheehan: Antisemetic Moonbat (UPDATED)

Jawa Report contributor and Paduan Learner, Trader Rob of Exposing the Left, digs up this usenet post from Cindy Sheehan:

Am I emotional? Yes, my first born was murdered. Am I angry? Yes, he was killed for lies and for a PNAC Neo-Con agenda to benefit Israel. My son joined the Army to protect America, not Israel. Am I stupid? No, I know full-well that my son, my family, this nation, and this world were betrayed by a George Bush who was influenced by the neo-con PNAC agenda after 9/11. [READ THE REST]
Trader Rob calls this remark borderline anti-semetism. I dunno, call me an out there if you will, but there is something about, you know, believing there is a secret group--a cabal if you will-- of Jews pulling the strings of power behind closed doors involved in a deep plot to conceal the real reasons we went to war seems something more than borderline. But that's just me.

UPDATE: Via Rob at Say Anything, I learn that Phil Hendrie weighs in on Sheehan.

UPDATE II, 8/11: A reader sends this transcript from a recording of a Sheehan speech he attended:

"It was the unstated threat. Iraq wasn't going to attack America or nuke America. But Iraq was a threat -- to Israel. That was the real threat and had been for fifteen years. But for the US government this was the threat that couldn't speak its name. Europe doesn't care much about that threat. And the US government didn't think they should lean too much on it, because going to war to protect Israel wouldn't be popular.
Nothing to see here folks. Move along.

I suspect we may update this post later. Call it a hunch.

UPDATE 8/12: From my latest post:

Cindy says that the protesters will be killed if they stay the night.

“We’re not letting them intimidate us. If we get killed out here, know that
the Secret Service killed us.”
