Amconmag on Walt-Mearsheimer

Great backgrounder on the Walt-Mearsheimer paper and reaction thereto in the American Conservative

Nice quote:

Ha’aretz’s Bradley Burston has become so disenchanted with hard-line Jewish-American second-guessing of Israeli peace overtures that in a recent column he confessed, “I used to be an American Jew. And then I read Daniel Pipes,” the leader of Campus Watch, an organization devoted to purging American universities of Israel-critical sentiments. Admitting that the leadership of the American Jewish community was far more intransigent than most Israelis, former Barak adviser Daniel Levy said, “the pro-Israel position in the United States needs to start approximating more closely just where the debate is in Israel.”
