04-20-07 - Video about the Israeli lobby This is that same video that I had linked to a week or so ago, but noted that someone had inserted some anti-Semitic bs in the beginning (for whatever reason, could be to discredit the entire message of the video ) - minus the anti-Semitic crap. This is likely the ORIGINAL. It came from this page, but I had trouble seeing the picture from the page, so I linked to the clip itself. This is a very well made video that features Walt, Mearsheimer, Earl Hiliard, Tony Judt. This version is longer than the previous one. Beware of those that seek to lump together criticism of Israel with genuine anti-Semitism. As to the statement by Judt at the very end of the clip, one may ask themselves: why is that? The answer to the question lies with the very theme of the clip.
