Stoking Antisemitism?

Jim Henley reports on an interesting story: it is being claimed that in at least one case, interrogators of detainees at Gitmo tried to use the Jewishness of the detainees' lawyer as an interrogation tool, suggesting to the detainees that they cannot trust their lawyer because he is Jewish.

While even if true, this could just be a ploy to try to keep a wedge between the lawyer and his clients, it does strike me that encouraging Muslim antisemitism would very much help those who wish to see us at war with the Middle East. So it is not unreasonable to suspect that those who want to see the U.S. conquer the Middle East would have an additional reason to encourage this sort of thing.

That is all.
