Israel and the Iraq War

By Allan Arkush

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2008

Arkush considers the contention that Jewish neoconservative intellectuals and political figures favor a more activist stance in American foreign policy than they might otherwise support due to their concern for Israel's security. He opines that their perspective extends far beyond the need to protect Israel, as evidenced by their writings on foreign policy. However, he also predicts that strongly pro-Israel American Jews in high places who advocate or help to institute policies that are promoted, in part, as beneficial to Israel will always be exposed to such suspicions, especially when the policies for which they are responsible are unpopular or unsuccessful or both.
