Kissinger went even further than just leaning against Israel

Reader comment on item: Viscount Samuel, Meet Secretary Hagel

The Jewish Secretary of State for Nixon who served in WWII went so far as to state that if he were in charge during that time he would prefer that U.S and allied powers not go out of their way to put a stop to the Holocaust as it wouldnt have served the war efforts.

I believe he said something similar about helping Israel in the Yom Kippur war in that they helped Israel only to get more political leverage in the Middle East. Richard Nixon,who interestingly had made many anti semitic remarks particularly with regard to Jewish media personalities, wanted to help Israel because it was the right thing to do. In this he resembles the Zionist champion Harry Truman under whose administration Israel and founded and was recognized first. However he kept his distance from Jews on a personal level so much so that he refused to invite them to his house
