Abstract

In this paper, John J. Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago’s Department of Political Science and Stephen M.Walt of Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government contend that the centerpiece of U.S. Middle East policy is its intimate relationship with Israel. The authors argue that although often justified as reflecting shared strategic interests or compelling moral imperatives, the U.S. commitment to Israel is due primarily to the activities of the “Israel Lobby.” This paper goes on to describe the various activities that pro-Israel groups have undertaken in order to shift U.S. foreign policy in a pro-Israel direction.To view responses to this paper from Harvard University faculty members, click here

if the spanish didnt take over, they’d still be sacrificing their people for rain. If anything, their populations have grown larger since the spanish takeover, aswell as a higher quality living standard. But if they want to change that and go back to sacrificing people for rain, it can be done.
