Naming that Lobby
The New York Times chose to use "Jewish Lobby" in its headline about the Mearsheimer-Walt study. The authors used the term "Israeli Lobby." There is a big difference and the study makes clear the "Israel" lobby is part composed of Jewish organizations. It has Christian evangelists and non-Jewish neo-conservatives. But "Jewish" is more effective in smearing the study as anti-semitic. As this article shows, it isn't.
