Jewish Interests vs Gentile Interests

I read this post:

To some Jewish organizations, speaking in the name of Jewish interests smacks of crass parochialism. Richard Perle recalled a day in 1972, when as an aide to Senator Henry “Scoop” Jackson he was working to round up support for a bill that would provide crucially needed aid to Israel:
“The telephone rang and it was the Washington representative of one of the Jewish organizations. I figured he was calling in with a report on the response of some Senators to our lobbying efforts. He wanted to talk about [William] Rehnquist [who had just been nominated by Nixon to the Supreme Court]. I said, ‘Jesus Christ, don’t you know we’re in the middle of a crisis.’ And he said, ‘Well, I did want to talk about that.’ And I said, ‘Well, what do you know?’ And the other crisis he had in mind was Bangladesh. Here was the son of a bitch running around on Rehnquist and Bangladesh at the crucial moment we were trying to bring on board the necessary support for this rather substantial appropriation, and that’s typical. The principle representatives of Jewish organizations in town all are interested in other things.”

I asked: Does America have any vital national security interests in the Middle East? If not, and I think not, then is not Jewish lobbying for Israel pushing America to do things not in its interests? I would favor a universal ban in the United States on lobbying for foreign powers. I am all for Jews pushing for their interests right up to but not including over-reach which boomerangs back upon them.
Response: “America has an interest in opposing the head-choppers and Islamofascists. Israel and America share a common enemy.”
Luke: “Why does America have an interest in opposing head-choppers in other countries? What does it have to do with America?”
Response: “Throat-slitters killed 3,000 American citizens. Didn’t 9-11 teach us we couldn’t ignore the bastards? We are the great Satan, Israel the little Satan, to these Islamonazis. Israel and America should have a united front against them.”
Luke: “Do you think America would have been hit on 9/11 if it had not been so embedded with Israel?”
Response: “Answer one question: what is the greatest force for evil in the world today? If your answer is global warming, as it is for Obama, then so be it. If it is Islamofascism, then the questions answer themselves. I would prefer an America that is not morally neutral toward the greatest threats and evils of our time.”
Luke: “That’s a great question. I am not sure I would say Islamofascism because Muslims generally have low IQs. I can’t think of any civilized countries where the population has an average IQ of 85 (the number for Palestinians and Arabs and Muslims in general). So the greatest evils in the world today are those who push Western countries — the highest form of civilization to my taste — to import large numbers of deadly snakes. I don’t get angry at snakes for being snakes.”
Response: “If the greatest evil is Islamofacism, then what’s the answer?”
Luke: “Separation.”
