    @Indra So there are1000's people working in the US government. How many are educated Italian, Hispanic, Greek, Blacks, Germans, and Jews. And even how many are antisemitic like yourself? What is your point. Are you suggesting that Jews should be barred from working in the government? In the middle ages barring Jews from professions has been done. It was realised by many later tobe a mistake. Apparently not by your kind.

    Michael Mukasey Recently appointed as US Attorney General. Mukasey also was the judge in the litigation between developer Larry Silverstein and several insurance companies arising from the destruction of the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001.

    Michael Chertoff Former Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division, at the Justice Department; now head of Homeland Security.

    Richard Perle One of Bush's foreign policy advisors, he is the chairman of the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board. A very likely Israeli government agent, Perle was expelled from Senator Henry Jackson's office in the 1970's after the National Security Agency (NSA) caught him passing Highly-Classified (National Security) documents to the Israeli Embassy. He later worked for the Israeli weapons firm, Soltam. Perle came from one the above mentioned pro-Israel thinktanks, the AEI. Perle is one of the leading pro-Israeli fanatics leading this Iraq war mongering within the administration and now in the media.

    Paul Wolfowitz Former Deputy Defense Secretary, and member of Perle's Defense Policy Board, in the Pentagon. Wolfowitz is a close associate of Perle, and reportedly has close ties to the Israeli military. His sister lives in Israel. Wolfowitz came from the above mentioned Jewish thinktank, JINSA. Wolfowitz was the number two leader within the administration behind this Iraq war mongering. He later was appointed head of the World Bank but resigned under pressure from World Bank members over a scandal involving his misuse of power.

    Lawrence (Larry) Franklin The former Defense Intelligence Agency analyst with expertise in Iranian policy issues who worked in the office of Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith and reported directly to Feith's deputy, William Luti, was sentenced January 20, 2006, "to more than 12 years in prison for giving classified information to an Israeli diplomat" and members of the pro-Israel lobbying group American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

    Just another PR stunt from Kaspersky Labs to advertize their antivirus. They always tell you that your computers is in danger unless you buy our product, but does not tell you exactly what is the nature of the danger. looks like it is the time to dump Windows altogether in favor of Linux or Mac.

    Let's thank Israel.

    We can send First Marine Expeditionary to deliver our thanks..

    It's time to stop involving the American taxpayer in Israels various criminal actions.

    Anti semitism has less than nothing to do with it...

      I agree.

      Israel plays the anti semitism card so often, its beginning to embarrass diaspora Jews.

      Israel policy makers and lobbies take special care to exaggerate any anti semetic incident, and offer it as proof of universal hatred of the Jewish people.

      Point is, even Jews are quickly growing tired of Israel.

        just say some words for your friend Assad. He just finished killing his 12000 citizen. And Ahmedinejad killed hundred to keep in power last "elections". And Gadhaffi killed thousands in his 40 years "career" for the same reason. And don't even mention the stoning of women and hangings of gays in Iran because this will make Israel less evil. And also don't forget the beheading and hand-cutting shows in Saudi Arabia, or the acid attacks in Bangladesh. And last, but not least, the castrations in Afghanistan, along the Taliban forbidding education as a bonus. These are all wonderful places where you individuals like yourself would enjoy your next holidays

      you ought to listen to that small voice in the back of your head. That's right, the one that constantly tells you to think before you type.

        I don't know, it seems that his statement held genuine points of interest, while you are blatanlty an Israeli hasbara tool.

        Are you forgetting the thousands that Israel has killed when popular uprisings take place?

      Muslim theology is violent, because violence has always been a tool of its expansion. When we ask Muslims to disassociate themselves from violence, we are really asking them to disassociate themselves from Islam.

      And this they will not do. They will contextually condemn some acts of terror, depending on the identity of the perpetrators and the targets, and the impact of the acts on the nation and ideology of the Muslim or Muslims in question. But they will dub other acts of terrorist as valid resistance. The differences are not moral, but contextual.

      Exactly, Israel PR machine plays itself up as the wimpy kid getting picked on by a bunch of bulllies but in fact it can more than handle itself 100 times over and does NOT need our help. It is in fact the aggressor when it comes to the Palestinians. The system in Israel is no different than the Apartheid that was in South Africa.
