Harvard Backs Away From ‘Israel Lobby’ Study
Posted on Mar 27, 2006
The university has removed its backing from a controversial report (co-authored by a Harvard dean) critical of America’s pro-Israel lobby.
Read the report itself.
Check out criticism of the report here (from Jewish advocacy organizations), here (from an L.A. Times editorial writer) or here (by veteran presidential advisor David Gergen).
A controversial research report, The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy, by Harvard professor Stephen Walt and University of Chicago professor John Mearsheimer, that faults the “Israel lobby” for allegedly distorting the foreign policy of the United States to the detriment of U.S. interests, and which has been severely criticized as inaccurate and wrongheaded, no longer sports the Harvard or Kennedy School of Government logos that previously appeared on its front page.
