Change in Israel Foreign Policy Predicted (and Needed)

The book, the conclusion, I predicted when Pluto first went into Sagittarius, a major review of our Israeli foreign policy:  http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/23/books/chapters/0923-1st-mear.html

Quoting from thie NY Times articlem beginning a provocative new look at the Middle East and the special sanctions given to Israel.

“In 2008, as in previous election years, serious candidates for the highest office in the land will go to considerable lengths to express their deep personal commitment to one foreign country-Israel-as well as their determination to maintain unyielding U.S. support for the Jewish state. Each candidate will emphasize that he or she fully appreciates the multitude of threats facing Israel and make it clear that, if elected, the United States will remain firmly committed to defending Israel’s interests under any and all circumstances. None of the candidates is likely to criticize Israel in any significant way or suggest that the United States ought to pursue a more evenhanded policy in the region. Any who do will probably fall by the wayside. …”

The authors are Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer.  They take on the Israeli lobby.
