    A controversial research report, The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy, by Harvard professor Stephen Walt and University of Chicago professor John Mearsheimer, that faults the “Israel lobby” for allegedly distorting the foreign policy of the United States to the detriment of U.S. interests, and which has been severely criticized as inaccurate and wrongheaded, no longer sports the Harvard or Kennedy School of Government logos that previously appeared on its front page. The original first page, with the Harvard and KSG logos, and the usual small disclaimer. The revised first page – no Harvard logos and a much stronger and...

    Barackobama.com is Barack Obama’s official Web site, and the content is under his editorial control. The following items are entirely consistent with the Trinity United Church of Christ’s promotion of Hamas and a blood libel that accuses Israel of developing an “ethnic bomb” to kill Arabs and Black people.[Screen shot of page with Barack Obama's picture at the top that touts Walt's and Mearsheimer's "The Israel Lobby."] “Free Palestine” at BarackObama.com says the following. For 58 years Washington has ignored the Palestinian rights. These are people who were displaced from their homes and suppressed by the apartheid control of Israel....

    Head Strong | 'Anti-Semitic' label curbs talk about Israel By Michael Smerconish One year after 9/11, I visited Israel as a guest of the Jerusalem Post. In the midst of the intifadah, the hard-line newspaper arranged for me to broadcast my daily radio show from Jerusalem . At the time, I was also filing one-minute commentaries for KYW-AM (1060). One of them caused some consternation at home. Here is what I said: "Yesterday, an Israeli guide was anxious to show me the community called Gilo. " 'Look,' he said, 'at the sandbags that these people have to place in their...

    US scholars: Israel planned Lebanon war in advance Nathan Guttman, THE JERUSALEM POST Aug. 29, 2006 The two US scholars, who stirred controversy several months ago after claiming that US foreign policy is skewed in favor of Israel due to the work of the pro-Israeli lobby, are now accusing the lobby of leading the administration, Congress and public opinion to support Israel's actions in Lebanon against America's best interests. Profs. Stephan Walt and John Mearsheimer also claim that Israel had planned the war in Lebanon in advanced and used the kidnapping of its soldiers as a pretext to launch the...

    It was quite a boner. University of Chicago political scientist John Mearsheimer was in town yesterday to elaborate on his view that American Jewish groups are responsible for the war in Iraq, the destruction of Lebanon's infrastructure and many other bad things. As evidence, he cited the influence pro-Israel groups have on "John Boner, the House majority leader." Actually, Professor, it's "BAY-ner." But Mearsheimer quickly dispensed with Boehner (R-Ohio) and moved on to Jewish groups' nefarious sway over Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), who Mearsheimer called " Von Hollen." Such gaffes would be trivial -- if Mearsheimer weren't claiming to...

    Coverage of the debate over the recent paper by professors Stephen Walt of Harvard and John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago that examines the influence of Israel and its supporters in Washington over US foreign policy has been, mostly, absent from US media. But the paper generated vigorous debate in the British and international media and on the Internet. Since the working paper's release, there have been several more attacks on it, but also more support for the professors' position on the need to look hard at the US-Israel relationship. The Financial Times reports on Wednesday that Harvard Law...

    It brings no joy to issue a public rebuttal against a valued colleague, but there are moments that demand no less. The occasion is the publication of an essay titled "The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy," written by two professors, John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago and Stephen Walt, the academic dean and my colleague at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. In essence, their 82-page piece argues that U.S. policy in the Middle East has been hijacked by a pro-Israel "Lobby." "The core of the Lobby," they say, "is comprised of American Jews who make a significant effort...

    On December 27, 1962, President John F. Kennedy told Israeli Foreign Minister Golda Meir: "The United States has a special relationship with Israel in the Middle East really comparable only to what it has with Britain over a wide range of world affairs." The U.S. and Israel had a joint strategic interest in defeating aggressors in the Middle East seeking to disrupt the status quo, especially if they had Moscow's backing. In 1970 when Syria invaded Jordan, given the huge U.S. military commitment in Southeast Asia at the time, it was only the mobilization of Israeli strength that provided the...

    Walt Disney and airlines admit Sars virus is crippling business By William Kay 14 April 2003 Walt Disney, the international theme park company, and several airlines yesterday warned that their business is being damaged by the impact of severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars). Their warnings follow similar statements last week by British Airways and BAA, the airports operator, and will send waves of apprehension through investors in global hotel businesses. In a filing with Washington's Securities and Exchange Commission, Disney said concerns over "and uncertainty surrounding the transmission of this illness may also contribute to a reluctance to travel.
