According to France’s Europe Minister (!), American neo-cons were responsible for the Irish rejection of the Lisbon Treaty:
France’s Europe minister, Jean-Pierre Jouyet, has said that Europe has enemies in Washington, suggesting that neo-conservatives played a significant role in the Irish rejection of the Lisbon treaty earlier this month.
French daily Le Monde reports Mr Jouyet as saying that “Europe has powerful enemies on the other side of the Atlantic, gifted with considerable financial means. The role of American neo-conservatives was very important in the victory of the No.”

This is sort of funny, but since “neo-con” is used in many circles as code for “Jew”, it also might be a bit sinister.
