a journalist called Neil Clark accuses America of being behind the Russian oligarchs who President Putin is so wisely (if unconstitutionally) cracking down on at the moment. 'In the oligarchs,' says Clark, 'Perle... saw a way in which the US and Israel could, by proxy, gain political and economic power in Russia...' The 'and Israel' should have warned the editor of the New Statesman what he was dealing with here. I suggest he visits David Irving's home page or the revisionist Zundelsite website very soon.and I was convinced that the neo-cons, Israel and the Russian oligarchs were in cohoots. Of course, as Aaronovitch suggests, people might want to visit crackpot holocaust denier and worldwide Jewish conspiracy sites just to see the kind of malicious tosh that, unlike Aaronovitch's, doesn't make it into the mainstream but if you want to read a well reasoned piece on the relationship between the neo-cons, Israel and the Russian oligarchs read on.
