C-SPAN TO AIR CAIR ’ISRAEL LOBBY’ PANEL LIVE AT 1 P.M.
On Monday, August 28, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) will host a panel discussion on “The Israel Lobby and the U.S. Response to the War in Lebanon” at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The panel features Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer, who wrote an article in the March London Review of Books that raised questions about the power the Israel lobby wields over U.S. foreign policy, saying that the lobbyists try to prevent criticism by claiming anti-Semitism. Their article was also the cover story in the July-August issue of Foreign Policy Magazine.
IMPORTANT NOTE: A previous CAIR alert stated that the panel will be aired live on C-SPAN. The start time for the panel is 1 p.m. (Eastern), NOT 1:30 p.m. as previously indicated.
The forum may be VIEWED LIVE on C-SPAN’s main channel or ONLINE.
