Sueddeutsche printed today Tony Judt's op-ed "Doppelter Schaden -- Die USA und die "Israel-Lobby"":
http://www.sueddeutsche.de/sz/2006-04-28/feuilleton/artikel/HMG-2006-04-28-013-ak_vTnZp_af6rWtB56WdLQ/
but its not available online.
I have read it and it is excellent.

What Walt and Mearsheimer write is brave (unfortunately), but (also unfortunately) not new. Senator Fulbright said the same:

"Fulbright had earned the ever-lasting enmity of Israel and its friends as early as 1963, when his Foreign Relations Committee held hearings on foreign lobbies, including Israel's lobby. The hearings concluded that Israel operated "one of the most effective networks of foreign influence" in the United States. "

You are a fan of Tony Judt, right?
The Globalist has a piece by Judt on Bernard-Henri Lévy's Tocqueville tour:

Thanks, Joerg.

They do an excellent job of skewering Pipes for his outrageous comments. It is a scandal that someone like Pipes had any affiliation with Harvard - he embodies the absolute bottom rung in academic discourse. And he is a notorious coward.

Hallo,

fand durch Zufall diesen Blog (von David Vickrey, wie ich vermute? Aus den USA?). Dessen genauer Hintergrund ist mir zwar noch etwas unklar; aber jedenfalls ist die obige Eintragung über M-W und die dt. Presse interessant.

Mittlerweile hat sich auch der Journalist Rudolf Maresch mit der Studie von Mearsheimer und Walt bzw. mit den dahinter stehenden Sachverhalten auseinander gesetzt, und zwar in zwei längeren Artikel in "Telepolis":
"Der amerikanisch-israelische Komplex" (http://www.heise.de/tp/r4/html/result.xhtml?url=/tp/r4/artikel/23/23332/1.html) und 2Israel-Lobby in den USA" (http://www.heise.de/tp/r4/artikel/23/23361/1.html).

Auch ich selbst habe angefangen, ein wenig darüber nachzudenken: auf meiner Webseite "Drusenreich 5" u. d. T. "IN THE MACCHIA OF SPECIAL INTERESTS – A WELL OF CLEAR-CUT ANALYSIS?" (http://www.beltwild.de/drusenreich_fuenf.htm) sowie in Anklängen auch in meinen Blogeinträgen "Washington – Segesta – Athen – Tel Aviv: William Kristol und der peloponnesische Krieg.
" (http://beltwild.blogspot.com/2007/01/washington-segesta-athen-tel-aviv.html) und "MORAL'S OWN COUNTRY oder LASSET UNS EINANDER BRÜDERLICHE HÜTER SEIN!
" (http://beltwild.blogspot.com/2007/01/morals-own-country-oder-lasset-uns.html).
