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).

Author Mitchell Bard courageously explores the invisible alliance that threatens Israel and undermines America’s interests in the Middle East.

From the Jacket

The so-called Israel lobby has been widely denounced and demonized in the global media, but as Mitchell Bard reveals, its power pales in comparison to the decades-long corruption of American interests by Arab governments.

Reviews

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.
