The U.S. supports and exports racism - because you allow it!

No idea has played a more seminal role in the recent history of Jewish
and Christian Zionism than the Jewish doctrine of divine election or
chosenness. Since this doctrine is the cornerstone of Zionism, divine
sanction for Jewish uniqueness has been inseparable from Israeli
exceptionalism and Israeli history.
The theology of chosenness offered another advantage; it did not limit Zionist ambitions to Palestine alone. The Lord's promise was not restricted to Canaan; in a few more generous verses, He had expanded the Jewish inheritance to include all the lands between "the Nile and Euphrates". ( Genesis : 15.18) With present-day borders, this expansive Israeli empire would include Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and perhaps more.
In the middle of the Suez war in 1956, Ben-Gurion told the Knesset "that the real reason for it [the Suez war] is 'the restoration of the kingdom of David and Solomon' to its Biblical borders". At this point in his speech almost every Knesset member spontaneously rose and sang the Israeli national anthem.
Ben-Gurion never made any such statement in the Knesset, the chosen people myth has been a favorite motif of racists for 2,000 years, and Israel doesn't want to conquer Iraq or Egypt.
This malicious racist diatribe, with its fabrication of history, was not delivered by a known member of Al-Qaeda. It did not originate on the Web site of the Stormfront or the Hezbollah. It is not the product of Iranian racists. It was written in the government controlled newspaper of Egypt, a United States Middle East ally, that receives about $2 billion annually in U.S. aid, a country which has a U.S. brokered peace treaty with Israel.  
Such stories, along with virulent anti-American polemics, are regular fare in the government controlled Al-Ahram, a newspaper that is supposed to reflect the views of the Egyptian government, which is kept in power by U.S. tax dollars. The story in itself is therefore not remarkable. In the Arabic version of Al-Ahram, hidden from the eyes of Americans, and in other Egyptian media, there is rhetoric that makes this article look liberal and progressive by comparison. Holocaust denial, blood libel stories, editorials that praise Hitler and movies that present the forged "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" as fact are common. Egyptians do not like Jews. Egypt was ethnically cleansed of Jews in 1967.
What is remarkable is that the author, M Shahid Alam,  is not a known member of the Muslim Brotherhood, living in Cairo, or a "resistance" hero. Shahid is a professor of economics at Northeastern University in the United States, and the respected author of a book about Middle East studies. Alam will be remembered as the fellow who compared the 9-11 attackers to the US founding fathers. In his own words:
...the attackers believe that they are fighting – as the Americans did, in the 1770s – for their freedom and dignity against a foreign occupation/control of their lands.
George Washington and Tom Paine cast as suicide bombers by an American Professor? Why not? It hardly as inventive as his fabrications about Zionism and Ben Gurion.
If the United States remains a democracy, it will be hard to understand or explain, in a generation or two, how  such people got to be professors, how these preceptors were allowed to inculcate American youth with their evil inventions, and how the United States could support a government that printed such stuff in its controlled media.
