The Mix

Following up on the "Israel Lobby"

Readers write …
On Tuesday I explored the brouhaha surrounding the publication of an academic paper called "The Israel Lobby" by Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer.

As one might expect, there was feedback on my article a-plenty. Thanks to all of you who wrote nice things; to those of you who sent hatemail: I hope you didn't expect it to come as a big surprise.

I'd like to respond to two points made by readers.
