The Israel Lobby

The overbearing power and McCarthyite tactics wielded by the American Jewish establishment against critics of Israeli government policies has made critical discourse about U.S. support for the Israeli government extremely difficult. As a result, it is all too easy to buy into the arguments put forward by the book "The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy" that the 'Israel Lobby' is primarily responsible for the tragic course taken in U.S. Middle East policy.
