Rrrright it Must Be the LobbY
"There are two ideas that America, even now, will support; the ideally good and the underdog. Israel falls into both of these categories."
..John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt have released a paper titled “The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy.” They attempt to explain how Israeli lobbies are guiding the policy of the United States in the Middle East region..
Israel the Good Underdog clarifies.
Israel is the lone democracy in a sea of despots and oppression. Despite continuous harassment they have been able to build a successful society in a sea of despair. For the last 58 years Israel has done its best to establish and maintain this democracy. Living in an area smaller than the state of New Jersey they have been able to stave off attacks from the enemies that surround them. In fact, they are a constant reminder to the surrounding nations of their own failures. Despite living in a terrain that is not conducive to crop growth they have been able, with the exception of grain, to be self sustainable. With a labor force of less than 2.5 million they have a GDP of $123 billion. Because of their lack of resources they have learned to excel in the services sector of business.
Being a relative sliver of land they have been able to defend themselves physically and ideologically from their surrounding enemies. They have stood up against nations that have
superior resources and finances. The only true ally that they have has is the United States.
Every day they face homicide bombers and enemies on the brink. They have had to watch as diplomats made excuses for the actions of those who wish to destroy Israel...
They have watched murderous thugs receive peace prizes and awards from the world body. Despite this, they continue to fight for their right to exist. Had their neighbors accepted the partition in 1948 none of what they face today would be occurring."
Did you know that Israel celebrates Independence Day by holding a Bible contest..All citizens have health care..Airplanes have sky marshals, (go figure!)..
Close to 99% of all Israelis have families, and are regularly in touch
Western societies are just that: "societies". Israel is made up of
..and no mere amalgam of private selves releasing a paper titled “The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy.” can change that fact.
