The Israel Lobby,1; by John J. Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago and Stephen M. Walt of Harvard7;s John F. Kennedy School of Government, was one of the most controversial articles in recent memory. Originally published in theLondon Review of Booksin March 2006, it provoked both howls of outrage and cheers of gratitude for challenging what had been a taboo issue in America: the impact of the Israel lobby on U.S. foreign policy. Now in a work of major importance, Mearsheimer and Walt deepen and expand their argument and confront recent developments in Lebanon and Iran. They describe the remarkable level of material and diplomatic support that the United States provides to Israel and argues that this support cannot be fully explained on either strategic or moral grounds. This exceptional relationship is due largely to the political influence of a loose coalition of individuals and organizations that actively work to shape U.S. foreign policy in a pro-Israel direction. Mearsheimer and Walt provocatively contend that the lobby has a far-reaching impact on America7;s posture throughout the Middle East-in Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, and toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict-and the policies it has encouraged are in neither America7;s national interest nor Israel7;s long-term interest. The lobby7;s influence also affects America7;s relationship with important allies and increases dangers that all states face from global jihadist terror. Writing inThe New York Review of Books, Michael Massing declared, 0;Not sinceForeign Affairsmagazine published Samuel Huntington7;s 6;The Clash of Civilizations?7; in 1993 has an academic essay detonated with such force.1; The publication ofThe Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policyis certain to widen the debate and to be one of the most talked-about books of the year.
