Mearsheimer and Walt

Reader comment on item: Department of Corrections (of Others' Factual Mistakes about Me)

Submitted by B.A. Kirken (United States), Mar 20, 2006 at 15:14

Reading the analysis of Mearsheimer and Walt, it is clear that you have misrepresented their statement regarding the "pro-Israel Lobby" and Campus Watch; nowhere in the report is the implication that an outside organization influenced its founding through any sort of direction. Instead, you and Dr. Kramer are identified by your intense pro-Israel sympathies, and it is these sympathies which underlie Campus Watch. What I gather from their statement is that, instead of being directed from some sort of outside "Lobby," you seen as part of the lobby yourself by virtue of pro-Israel sympathies, which the authors believe may not coincide with American interests.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I see, the Lobby is a metaphysical thing that by virtue of supporting a strong U.S.-Israel relationship one automatically belongs to? How convenient.
