"The Israel Lobby"

For those who have the time or inclination to do some more serious reading, the London Review of Books recently featured an article entitled “The Israel Lobby” (http://www.lrb.co.uk/v28/n06/mear01_.html). This article, written by two respected professors, one from the University of Chicago and the other from Harvard, asserts that the Israeli lobby in Washington, DC has essentially dictated much of the United States’ foreign policy, at least where the Middle East is concerned, since the sixties. Originally intended as a scholarly work, the article has resulted in a tremendous public outcry and media debate in the States with the not so surprising charges of anti-Semitism, name calling, and so on. In any event, an interesting and timely piece for those with some time and patience.
