  • Yes, there is a Jewish lobby

    January 16, 2013 | 11:58 am

    Sorry to burst everyone’s branding bubble, but there is a “Jewish lobby.” It happens to be pro-Israel because it’s Jewish — not the other way around.

    Jews don’t like hearing non-Jews use the term in public, and perhaps they shouldn’t. But as an interest group, Jews as such are...

    Our Jewish Spinsters

    Rob Eshman's piece, "Our Hindu Widows" is literally unbelievable (Aug. 10). I am a marriage-minded 52-year-old SJM. I have never been married and want to find my match and start a family. The only really practical advice I have ever heard is "Buy a mansion in...

  • How Walt and Mearsheimer’s book got the pro-Israel lobby wrong

    By Ron Kampeas

    September 20, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Covering Israel, its relationship with the United States and the influential lobby that straddles the two often requires the basic skills and instincts of a cub reporter on the neighborhood beat.

    With that in mind, I approached "The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy," the new book...

  • Jew-Baiting

    By Rob Eshman

    September 8, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Five years ago, before the start of the Iraq War, I wrote an editorial titled "The Jewish War." If the Iraq War is a disaster, I wrote, mainstream voices will start blaming the Jews.

    Far-right pundits like Pat Buchanan had long pointed at Israel and the Jews for America's problems...

  • An AIPAC ‘stranglehold’ on US foreign policy? Huh?

    By Neal Sher

    November 22, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    Fascinating, isn't it, to watch professors Stephen Walt (Harvard University) and John Mearsheimer (University of Chicago) attain near rock star status by resurrecting the tired and discredited canard that U.S. foreign policy is dictated by a devious, dangerous and disloyal cabal...

  • AIPAC Probe Fails to Erode Support

    By Ron Kampeas

    December 9, 2004 | 7:00 pm

     

    The public resurrection of a federal investigation involving Washington's top pro-Israel lobby has done little to shake Jewish confidence in the group -- but some organizations worry about the long road that now appears ahead.

    FBI investigators searched the Washington headquarters...

    Ask a Northern Californian about Southern California, and normally you'll hear about everything that Southern California is lacking: lack of public transportation and lack of culture. Or else you'll hear about the excess: excess of fancy cars and excess of pollution.

    But ask San...

  • AIPAC Adapts

    By James D

    May 27, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    That squeak audible over Washington this week was the sound of the pro-Israel lobby turning on a dime.

    Stung by criticism by some Labor leaders of a longstanding pro-Likud tilt, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), began a quick readjustment at this week's annual...
