"Too many Joos! We blame them for everything!"
"The Israel Lobby"
by John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt
in the London Review of Books Vol. 28 No. 6 dated 23 March 2006
Not to be outdone by Yale admitting a high-ranking and unrepentant Taliban who excused jihadi execution of women kneeling in soccer fields by claiming "...There were also executions in Texas...", Harvard now unleashes both barrels at the Jews. Jews who love America, Jews who don't want to see Israel destroyed, and even Jews who keep giving heavily to Harvard's endowment fund.
This piece by two advocates of the limiting of American aid to (and ultimately, aiming for the destruction of) Israel can be summed up and rebutted quite briefly.
The authors never address a central question: which would benefit America more: Israel looking increasingly like her Arab neighbors, or the reverse?
Their failure to ask that question before they began their regurgitation* of years of pro--baathist, pro-leftist, anti-Christian, and anti-Jewish jeremiads reveals them to be either so intellectually shallow and/or blinded by their hatred of all things American and Christian and Jewish, that they prefer that Israel be destroyed and replaced by the muslim dictators found in almost all of the surrounding Arab "nations".
(*Many others have already noted that the authors' "research" is mirrored on the thousands of rabid Jew- hating and jihad-supporting websites scattered all over the WWW).
Looking at one of the authors "credits", we also note that:
Stephen Walt is the Robert and Renee Belfer Professor of International Affairs at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. His most recent book is Taming American Power: The Global Response to US Primacy.Not only does Professor Walt believe that America shouldn't be a global leader, but it seems he believes that the U.S. needs to be "tamed." In other words, he would prefer that other nations dominate the global stage; he is probably very upset with America's disgust with a UN Human Rights Council that has been led by such stalwarts of freedom such as Syria, Lybia and the Sudan.
So when Professor Walt and his co-author write that support for Israel is not in America's interest, we have to ask, when did he or his partner ever have America's best interests at heart?
Finally, these two geniuses from Harvard neglect to inform their readers exactly what benefits would accrue to America should we withdraw our support from Israel.
One obvious result of a reduction of American support would be to force Israel into an even deeper war economy to fight for her survival, with the concomitant reduction in Israeli research that has lead to major benefits for America, including the co-development of Intel and Motorola chips, along with the invention of instant messenger software used in computers and cell phones, technologies in use in not only in America but also used in most of the world's computers.
America (and the world) could also forget about the thousands of drug patents developed in Israel. I am sure that the authors believe that these could all be developed by the Arab world...
There is also the likely scenario that without American pressure on the common enemies faced by Israel and the U.S., the Israelis would conclude that their only safe option after further Arab attacks would be to conduct wholesale bombing on and inflict massive destruction of their enemies infrastructure (read "oil production" & "the Suez Canal").
One can only speculate, but possibly the authors privately support this as a method of Arab population control.
Finally, the authors neglect the entire issue of worldwide Islamic-fundamentalism and its multi-century (and koran-sanctioned) method and pattern of "accepting" surrender of infidels on the battlefield:
Without exception, for over thirteen centuries, any and every Islamic victory has always led to and would lead to new and further attacks on Islam's next target.
Islamo-fascist terror is spreading around the globe. If these two professors are not the paid agents of same, they certainly deserve the accolades of those who desire to spread Sharia and further Islamic-generated destruction.
As for the rest of us, we can only promise to never hire any Harvard graduate who has not publicly spoken out against these two shills for Osama Bin Laden.
