Abstract

MEARSHEIMER, John  and  WALT, Stephen. O Lobby de Israel. Novos estud. - CEBRAP [online]. 2006, n.76, pp. 43-73. ISSN 0101-3300.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-33002006000300003.

The thrust of US Middle Eastern policy derives from the activities of the "Israel Lobby", which has managed to divert it as far from what the national interest would suggest, convincing Americans that US interests and those of Israel are identical. The article states that neither shared strategic interests nor compelling moral imperatives can account for the remarkable level of material and diplomatic support provided to Israel by US government.

Keywords : Israel; United States; Middle East; foreign affairs.
