Delusional Thought of the Day

Stephan Walt has made a career off advocating a controversial idea; namely, that the “Israel lobby” has a disproportionate influence on American foreign policy in comparison to Israel’s strategic importance to the United States.  Since he represents a small minority in Washington political circles, it must be difficult to constantly defend oneself; the desire to trade in hyperbole must be strong.  And it is for that reason that I forgive what might be the most ridiculous thing that I’ve read in a while:

Saudi Arabia and the other Arab states have no meaningful lobby in Washington, which is why their repeated requests that the United States do something to end Israel’s illegal occupation and harsh treatment of the Palestinians have fallen on deaf ears for decades.

Surely he knows that this is a demonstrably false statement.
