“To Understand US Gov Support for Israel…”

“…rather than neutral or pro-Palestinian, one must study the sources of nonelite, non-Jewish support for the Jewish state.” — Walter Russell Mead (my new favorite author for God & Gold) in July/Aug 2008 Foreign Affairs Magazine

And this support is very broad. Walt & Mearshemeir’s Jewish Lobby plays into tropes of Jewish conspiracy against these facts of longstanding (1815-), Protestant Zionism (in both apocalyptic and progressive forms). Is it only from the perspective of the academia, Presbyterian committee meetings, and Dearborn, MI that US policy is “unpopular” and “irrational” and therefore a result of conspiracy?
