The Israel Lobby Is Trying to Sell Another War

It is widely believed that one of the major reasons we chose to put a priority on toppling Saddam Hussein was due to the lobbying efforts for Israel in Washington. In a Zogby International poll commissioned by the CNI Foundation, 39 percent of American likely voters believe that “the work of the Israel Lobby on Congress and the Bush administration has been a key factor for going to war in Iraq and now confronting Iran.”
(More details on the poll can be found at our website,

The overcommitment of American forces to a senseless and lethal occupation of Iraq has led to unexpected consequences that will be with us for decades. One of them is a possible military confrontation with Iran, now being openly discussed in Washington. This ignores the limits of American power and the potential for disastrous effects for our friends in the Middle East, including Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Israel itself.

Many in Washington are proposing a “grand bargain”: the U.S. would no longer seek a regime change in Tehran, and Iran would give up its nuclear weapons ambitions. But a wiser and far more credible use of American power would be to renegotiate the NPT (Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty), as billionaire peace activist George Soros argues, in order to bring all nations under a global system of control of nuclear
weapons. Israel is not a signatory of the present NPT, and the Lobby can be expected to oppose any effort that acknowledges Israel’s own estimated 250 to 300 nuclear weapons.
