An attack on the "Israel Lobby"....
This is an outrageous attack.
In a scathing attack on what they termed the “Israel Lobby,” the Kennedy School’s Stephen M. Walt and the University of Chicago’s John J. Mearsheimer argued in a recent article that supporters of Israel have seized control of U.S. foreign policy, making it reflect Israel’s interests more than those of the U.S.Gee, I really wish the Jews really did have all that power....if you read the whole article, you'll see the responses of Alan Dershowitz.
The article was published last Thursday in the London Review of Books and on the Kennedy School’s website as part of the its faculty working papers series. Walt is the academic dean and a professor of international affairs at the Kennedy School and Mearsheimer is a professor of political science.
In their piece, the authors savaged those on both the political Left and Right, calling groups as diverse as the Brookings Institution and American Enterprise Institute, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal editorial boards, and Sen. Hillary R. Clinton, D-N.Y., and World Bank President Paul D. Wolfowitz members of the “Israel Lobby.”
“The overall thrust of the U.S. policy in the region is due almost entirely to U.S. domestic politics, and especially to the activities of the ‘Israel Lobby,’” the authors wrote in their introduction. “[No] lobby has managed to divert U.S. foreign policy as far from what the American national interest would otherwise suggest.”
This article reminds me of the joke where there is a jew sitting in a park in Berlin during the Second World War reading the anti-semitic newspaper, Der Sturmer. Another jew is reading a jewish newspaper. He leans over and ask the first jew why he is reading such anti-semitic filth. He says, "in your paper, all we have is trouble...in my paper, we control the banks, we control the media....makes me feel better."
