Israel and its Lobby against the US: The unravelling

March 31, 2010 § Leave a comment

Scott Horton of Antiwar Radio interviews fellow PULSEr and IRMEP director Grant F. Smith. A very important discussion: don’t miss!


Grant F. Smith, director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy in Washington, D.C., discusses the unusual US/Israel public dispute following Israel’s snub of Joe Biden, credibility problems for US Middle Eastern client states that must pretend to care about the plight of Palestinians, the increasingly fragile fiction that the US and Israel have identical interests, the failure of the US to enforce the 1938 Foreign Agents Registration Act and how AIPAC seeks to control US trade agreements.

Grant F. Smith is the author of Spy Trade: How Israel’s Lobby Undermines America’s Economy, America’s Defense Line: The Justice Department’s Battle to Register the Israel Lobby as Agents of a Foreign Government and Foreign Agents: The American Israel Public Affairs Committee from the 1963 Fulbright Hearings to the 2005 Espionage Scandal. He is a frequent contributor to Radio France Internationale and Voice of America’s Foro Interamericano. Smith has also appeared on BBC News, CNN, and C-SPAN. He is currently director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy in Washington, D.C.
