Who said this on a visit to America last week?

“When you think how fantastically successful the Jewish lobby has been … they more or less monopolize American foreign policy, as far as many people can see.” Mahmoud Ahamdinejad? No: it was Professor Richard Dawkins, speaking at the Atheist Alliance convention in Crystal City, Virginia.
