Walter Russell Mead: Non-Jewish Interest Groups, not "Israel Lobby" Drive Hawkish US Mideast Policy

Dennis Brasky

Rejecting the idea of a Jewish-led "Israel Lobby" Mead emphasizes the historical influence of American Christian Zionists and militarists in tilting America's Mideast policy toward the goals of the Israeli right… Israel’s most influential supporters in the U.S., Mead proposes, have acted often not out of sympathy with the state of Israel on its own terms, but rather out of the American national interest and in ways that accord with their own notions of Jews and Biblical prophecy.

In other words - the dog wags its tail and not the other way around!
