    Strauss-Kahn is French. He’s as French as Wolfowitz is American.

    As with most prominent world bankers, this guy is as ethnocentric as they come:

    “Every morning, when I wake up, I wonder how I can be useful to Israel.”
    --Strauss-Kahn, 1991

    In a recent post <> entitled “How Jewish is Dominique Strauss-Kahn?”, the Jewish Chronicle gives all the details: he's 100% casher.

    The light-hearted JC item actually said: “Verdict: Il est un Juif. So we say he is 89% Jewish.”

    In a 1979 book – Juifs et Français – his wife Anne Sinclair (heiress of the rich Schwartz Rosenberg family), was quoted as saying : “I could never have married a non-Jew”.

    Her former husband was Yvan Levai, a Jew.

    Strauss-Kahn has been honest enough to explain why he got into politics. In 1991, he declared to the weekly Tribune Juive:

    “Every morning, when I wake up, I wonder how I can be useful to Israel.”*

    He developed this idea in an 1991 interview with a French magazine (Passages, n 35, Feb-March 1991):

    “I think that every Jew in the diaspora, and therefore in France, must provide assistance to Israel wherever he is. This is also the reason why it is important that Jews take political responsibility. In my functions and in my everyday life, through all of my actions, I try to bring a modest stone to the building of Israel.”*

    Although the translation may not be very good English, the most important part is “THE reason....” He could have said “....One of the reasons”, but he just said “The”. I guess that before the paper got printed, the proof was checked by Strauss-Kahn, the journalist and the chief editor.

    Strauss-Kahn was about to become the next French president as many socialists think he still belongs to the left wing, and people on the right know he shares their economic views.

    Of course, all the French-Jewish ‘intelligensia’ rushed to defend him from the accusation of rape.

    So I'm quite surprised that this fervent Jewish-Zionist has been so much bashed in Murdoch's New York Post and Zuckerman's New York Daily News.

    * Everyone can check these original quotes (in French) on this ethnic site;
