Dawkins and the Jews

These are old news, but still interesting:

Dawkins: Jews Control US Policy

(IsraelNN.com) Professor Richard Dawkins, a senior British evolutionary scientist and outspoken atheist, drew fire on Monday for saying that Jews “more or less monopolize American foreign policy.” Religious Jews are a small group, Dawkins said, but are “fantastically successful” in lobbying the US government. Dawkins, who is currently in the US in an attempt to promote atheism and fight religious influence, expressed hope that atheists would be similarly successful in determining government policy.

A number of Jewish leaders responded immediately, with ADL head Abe Foxman calling Dawkin’s remarks “classic anti-Semitism.” Malcom Hoenlein, a senior official in the Conference of Presidents of Major American Organizations, was quoted by Yediot Acharonot as saying the statements represented “the poisoning of the elite.” Even top scientists can “demonstrate ignorance and fall victim to misinformation,” said Hoenlein, adding “This impact spreads within the intellectual community, and then trickles down to the general populace.”


I agree with Dawkins about the Jews.

But look at Dawkins's attitude.

What amazes me is not Dawkins's authoritarianism, it's his candid way to express it. Why should the majority of population -who believes in God- accept without opposition the imposition of an atheistic agenda? No wonder people fight against the imposition of the teaching of neo-darwinism in schools.

It's clear Dawkins doesn't believe in Democracy.

Dawkins has an authoritarian ideology. He wants a imperialism of atheism and scientism based on darwinian theory.

He should ocuppy himself to give scientific evidence of his "memetic" theory, that is a considered by experts as a non-scientific hypothesis:

Stephen Jay Gould used the concept of "darwinian fundamentalist", applied to Dakiwns:

But Gould couldn't live longer to see that Dawkins' fundamentalism would excede the specific field of biology, and would have the same absolutist ideological pretentions on philosophy, religion studies, social sciences and other fields.
