The Elders of Atheism

Danny Finkelstein has spotted a sweeping statement by Richard Dawkins that will rebound. He argues that atheists should follow the alleged model of ‘the Jewish lobby’:

When you think about how fantastically successful the Jewish lobby has been, though, in fact, they are less numerous I am told – religious Jews anyway – than atheists and [yet they] more or less monopolise American foreign policy as far as many people can see. So if atheists could achieve a small fraction of that influence, the world would be a better place.

An anti-democratic sentiment and anti-Jewish stereotype in one.
