How America influences Israel

Robert Kaiser's "Bush and Sharon Nearly Identical On Mideast Policy" has been discussed on IsraPundit. I've found another article documenting the ties between the current governments in Israel and the US. AFTER IRAQ by Nicholas Lemann is free from a lot of the sneaky terms that Kaiser uses. I get the feeling that Lemann is not comfortable with the likes of Richard Perle and Douglas Feith. But it's also clear from the article that he feels that it's more a matter of Americans in a position to influence having a similar worldview to people in the Israeli government. If anything he suggests that it may that it's a case Americans affecting Israel's direction rather than the other way around. Check it out while you can.
