about

While critics claim that a nefarious Israel Lobby dictates U.S. policy in the Middle East, the Arab Lobby in this country is older, richer, and more powerful than the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). The Arab Lobby  is the first book in more than 25 years to investigate the scope and activities of this diffuse yet powerful network. Author Mitchell Bard courageously explores the invisible alliance that threatens Israel and undermines America’s interests in the Middle East.

Mitchell Bard is an authority on U.S.-Israel relations and has written or edited more than twenty books, including48 Hours of Kristallnacht: Night of Destruction/Dawn of the Holocaust;Will Israel Survive?; andThe Water's Edge and Beyond: Defining the Limits to Domestic Influence on U.S. Middle East Policy. He has a doctorate from UCLA,...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A thorough, well-researched and fair, if overlong expose on a too often overlooked subject Bard's the Arab Lobby is epic in scope and shows how the Arab (and Islamic nations) use oil, public relations firms, and lobbying to legitimize Israel and camouflage their awful human rights records. He looks at how the lobby got started, how it wields its power and the various Arab and non-Arab supporters of the lobby. Particularly good are the parts about the role Christian's have played in the Arab lobby and how President Kennedy was able to abolish slavery in Saudi Arabia in 1962 by standing up to the Arab lobby (if only others could do so today). Lastly, Bard should be commended for his fairness by looking at how the Arab lobby could actually be a force for good in the world unlike the Anti-Israel propaganda machine it is today. It is overlong and sometime exhausting but if readers persevere, they will be richly rewarded (at least it was for me). Recommended highly.
