Default Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

Here it is, Israel on the road to apartheid, according to noted anti-Semite Thomas Friedman. Applause for Netanyahu in Congress "bought and paid for by Israel lobby." Republicans outdoing one another to appeal to the basest and stupidest instincts of American know-nothings. Friedman dares to distinguish between American interests and those of Israel.

I just want to point out that the ground has shifted on "the Israel lobby," primarily because of Walt and Mearsheimer, whatever their book's faults may be, so Mead's assertion in his review that the book would stifle debate was wildly incorrect, preposterously incorrect. Friedman is in a position to know something about the Israel lobby.
