A Modern Mein Kampf
In 2007, University of Chicago Professor John Mearsheimer co-authored The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy. His premise was that AIPAC successfully manipulated our foreign policy to serve Israel, not United States. The book was a best seller and has launched a career way beyond his tenure at Chicago. He has graduated to criticizing Israel directly, and now, Jews. In 2010 he proclaimed Israelis as belonging to either the Righteous Jews or the New Afrikaners, stating that Israel was becoming an apartheid state. Last year he wrote a dust jacket endorsement for a book by a Hitler apologist. He can be found as a commentator on Al Jazeera and a speaker at Palestinian seminars. Yesterday, some of his misconceptions about AIPAC were parroted as comments in the local blogosphere.
