The notion that the "Israel lobby" is responsible for the problems in Egypt is preposterous.Someone really should write a book about this anti-Israel Lobby...
Using that logic, why isn't the anti-Israel lobby to blame; after all, those who argued that the U.S. needed more "balance" in the Middle East long have advocated greater support for existing governments of Egypt and other Arab countries. The calls for greater democracy in the Middle East, even at the risk of destabilizing authoritarian governments, have come not from the anti-Israel lobby, but from the pro-Israel "neocons" and George W. Bush.
