It's worth noting that Walt and Mearsheimer are getting a book published in September by an American publishing house.
( http://backspin.typepad.com/backspin/2007/03/walt_and_mearsh.html ) Remember how they claimed last year that they had to get their paper published in London because they couldn't get it published in the States because of Israel's influence? I guess they weren't looking so hard last year. Or they were lying.

The book is already listed at Amazon for publication on September 4, 2007 by Farrar, Straus & Giroux, perhaps the most prestigious publishing house in America.

The book jacket will describe it as “a work of major importance” that will “deepen and expand their argument and confront recent developments in Lebanon and Iran.”

“Mearsheimer and Walt provocatively contend that the lobby has a far-reaching impact on America’s posture throughout the Middle East—in Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, and toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict . . . The lobby’s influence also affects America’s relationship with important allies and increases dangers that all states face from global jihadist terror."

Got that? The Israel Lobby is a danger to “all states.”

bigoted comments are often prefigured by the false claim that they're speaking what is usually "forbidden" or "censored"

this lets them damn their critics as suppressors of free speech and continue drawing a picture of evil jewish influence suppressing everyone's views, rather than dealing with the issues

Shalom Freedman

The 'NY Review of Books' has become persistent in its Anti- Israel naggings. It of course has a long history from the time of I.F. Stone of finding Israel to fault in this conflict.
It seems that every other issue there is a long piece explaining why if it were not for Israel's intransigence Peace would long ago have been attained in the Middle East.
I wonder what the 'money' behind NY Review is and why it takes that line.
