More on "The Israel Lobby"

I'm working all hours these days and am not doing a great job keeping up, but I did manage to ready a lovely article in The Nation that discusses the recent Mearsheimer-Walt paper on the pro-Israel lobby that's been making waves over the past few months.

Check it out--it's a great read.

I haven't had a chance yet to read the articles - I will though! - but I understand the Egyptian Observer has something to say about this. Worth checking it out.

Amanda,
The way you invited people to read on the Israeli Lobby was done as if it's true that "Jews" run America. The Nation's article wasn't "lovely" and did not worth reading as you suggested. Jews don't run America, cab drivers do. Isn't this stupid statement sound more politically correct? Okay, let's just imagine that Jews actually run this huge Christian country, they're still Americans. They did not fall upon us from space and dictated our lives. They went to our schools and our universities, like the rest. They were just a little different. Higher intelligence, commitment to their own heritage, hard workers, higher morals, broader visions. Americans stop, if you want to run your own country, there is still time to catch up, IF YOU CAN.

c.z, I don't remember the study saying anything about jewish people running America. I think it mentioned on more than one occasion that many members of this lobbying body were actually Christians.

Those Christians are a small percentage whithin the Jewish lobbying organizations. This interest group advocate their own agenda of religious and political "beliefs". The Jewish lobbys are often in conflict with them. They are used by the authors or more accurately the "scum of academia" as a scapegoat so that anti-Semetism can hide whihin the scapegoat.
