hmm Cambridge Conversazione Society is like the Skull & Bones here.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skull_and_Bones
Yes, this is true, but I urge you to avoid the common error of the conspiracy theorist, which is to begin compiling lists of persons who belong to these clubs. The significance lies rather in the mindset of people who are attracted to this sort of social environment; you can characterize the typical member, or wannabe, as someone who prides themselves on being very clever and amoral, and revels in exerting power over those lower-ranking mortals who are too slow-witted or sincere to move in such circles. I think that this description might also apply, occasionally, to members of the Wikipedia Cabal.

I hope you don´t include me among those who think SV is anti Jewish or anti Israeli?? Read my above post #125 again, please.
I think that the whole issue of whether SlimVirgin is pro- or anti-Jewish is a red herring. I'll explain why.
Let's assume, for argument's sake, that this whole Cambridge Apostles business indicates that SV is totally impressed with these gangs of putative intellectuals who dominate foreign policy for the UK and Commonwealth countries. What is their relationship to the Jewish community? Historically, the British establishment was more than a little anti-Semitic, but then they turned around and produced the Balfour Declaration -- not out of remorse, but because they saw an opportunity to use Jews to further their geopolitical interests in the Mideast and elsewhere. Now, let's consider their relationship to Islam. The largest library of Islamic literature in the world is at Oxford. Does this indicate a particular reverence or respect for Islam by the British establishment? Hardly. They also had the intention to manipulate Muslims for geopolitical purposes (I could suggest that you read the Wikipedia article on Bernard Lewis,
but that article is so sanitized as to be completely uninformative. And, not surprisingly, I find SlimVirgin among the contributors in the edit history.)
