Sheldon Drobny is a wealthy Jewish financier of the Democrats, and founder of Air America, the liberal—left "answer" to conservative talk radio. See this Chicago Jewish News interview for a sense of the man.
Remarkably, Drobny actually believes the virulent anti—Semitism and anti—Israel sentiment on the left is in reality a conspiracy orchestrated by the right. As Drobny's last sentence states: "I see Karl Rove's fingerprints all over this".
Below are excerpts from his blog:
"I came to the conclusion that the hostile comments about Israel on these liberal blogs are not coming from true liberals. Most of the anti—Semitism comes from racism and most of the racism I have experienced has come from the far right, not the left.
"So my conclusion is that the bloggers who violently hate Israel and see it in black and white terms are not really liberals. They may even be anti—Semites, but they are not representative of the liberal community that was so active in achieving racial and ethnic equality. It is a contradiction for a true liberal to be an anti—Semite.
Furthermore, I would not put it past the right wing to flood the liberal blogs with hateful criticisms of Israel to advance a perception that liberals are anti—Israel or anti—Semitic. And I see Karl Rove's fingerprints all over this."
