There seems to be no end to the West's obsession with Nazism, Hitler and the Third Reich, says prominent British journalist Simon Jenkins. What's behind this? In spite of decades of hateful propaganda, this fascination seems to grow with time, and millions of people around the world even regard Hitler and the Third Reich positively. The dreaded "anti-Semite" label has been hurled so often and so recklessly in recent times that it's lost much of its impact. Two American scholars who've been viciously smeared as anti-Semites are Steven Walt and John Mearsheimer, authors of The Israel Lobby, an important book that shows how this powerful lobby sets US Middle East policy. In the four years since it was published, their point is now widely acknowledged as undeniably true. Gertrude Stein was an influential, "modernistic," twentieth-century Jewish-American writer. In spite of her background, in 1938 she nominated Hitler for the Nobel Peace Prize.
