A thoughtful commentary on Meirsheimer-Walt

Haaretz - Israel News - Article: "A unilateral withdrawal that is not based on an agreement with the Palestinians will be meaningless if it does not win international support. Strengthening the ties between Israel and Europe and getting the United States involved in the process is a top-priority strategic necessity. The Jewish and Israeli lobby in America would do well to begin explaining the next withdrawal now, after years in which they primarily tried to win support for a continuation of the occupation and the settlement enterprise. Perhaps then it will be easier to explain Israeli policy and consolidate the true American and Israeli interests. The professors' article does not deserve condemnation; rather, it should serve as a warning sign"
