More on Israel Lobby

The Jerusalem Post today reports that Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz has challenged the authors of "The Israel Lobby" paper to a public debate.

The Post also mentions CAMERA's work debunking some of the study's claims.

Also, while Shmuel Rosner, the Washington correspondent for Ha'aretz, has blogged that the paper "is biased, one-sided, foolish, repetitive, and most of all, has nothing new to offer," Ha'aretz's editorial yesterday spoke respectfully of the study as if it were credible, and concludes:

The Jewish and Israeli lobby in America would do well to begin explaining the next withdrawal now, after years in which they primarily tried to win support for a continuation of the occupation and the settlement enterprise. Perhaps then it will be easier to explain Israeli policy and consolidate the true American and Israeli interests. The professors' article does not deserve condemnation; rather, it should serve as a warning sign.

Ha'aretz, unlike the Post, has not done an article yet regarding the critical response to the already discredited study, from which Harvard and the University of Chicago are already distancing themselves.
