Walt/Mearsheimer 'Blowback' in LA Times, II

The Los Angeles Times has run a second "Blowback" online (but not in print) rebuttal of the inflammatory Walt-Measheimer Op-Ed . The excellent piece by Congressman Artur Davis and Eric Cantor is here. They write:

Mearsheimer and Walt accuse all of us who support Israel in its struggle to live in peace and security of being Israel's "false friends." The accusation is remarkably disingenuous since it implies that Walt and Mearsheimer are Israel's true friends. These so-called true friends put the entirety of the blame for the failure of the peace process on the Israelis.

What kind of true friends write volumes on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and gloss over the thousands of rockets Palestinian terror groups in Gaza launch into Israel? What kind of friend refuses to acknowledge the vicious propaganda machine in the West Bank and Gaza that stokes anti-Semitism and glorifies suicide bombers? Friends do not ask friends to dig their own graves.
