Perhaps the HBO star believes in other myths ripped from the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
The crazy part of it all is that even in pro-Israel administrations the State Department's has an anti-Israel history.
JAMIE WEINSTEIN, EDITOR AT DAILY CALLER: Just yesterday, there was a new speech that they believe in which during the question and answer [session] at Rutgers University, Hagel claimed that the State Department was controlled by the Israeli government. Israeli foreign ministry controls the government.
DONNA BRAZILE, DEMOCRATIC STRATEGIST: You see, Bill, what they're doing is they're going after every --
BILL MAHER, HOST OF "REAL TIME" ON HBO: And it’s not?
WEINSTEIN: Well, there's two things wrong with that. One is that -- it’s, you know, kind of suggesting Israeli power is controlling things. Number two, of all the branches of the government, the State Department being the most pro-Israel branch is ridiculous.

WEINSTEIN: Not the State Department, that’s for sure. (HBO's Real Time, February 15, 2013)
If Maher had said this about any other religious/ethnic group this would be come a big media scandal...but since it was only the Jews, there has not been a peep of disgust from anywhere.
