Their basic thesis is that AIPAC determines US policy in the Middle East
against real US interests. This is the same "tail wags dog" thesis 
argued
by Mearsheimer and Walt -- except that the latter are more 
sophisticated,
and stress that the Israel lobby is much wider that AIPAC and includes 
many
more Christians than Jews. They also don't belong to the left, but are
bourgeois political "scientists".
