Libertarian Tom Woods Discusses The Israel Lobby & How It Works
By Martin Hill
April 26, 2016


Dr. Thomas E. Woods, Jr., is a senior fellow of the Mises Institute. He holds a bachelorís degree in history from Harvard and his masterís, M.Phil., and Ph.D. from Columbia University. Tom, an Austrian economics expert, New York Times best-selling author, Catholic libertarian and talk show host, recently went into uncharted territory to dare discuss a verboten topic, the Israel lobby.

Prior to his show, Tom sent out an e-mail to his list which began 'I guarantee I'll lose subscribers over today's episode.'

Yet he did it anyway. Kudos to Tom, for the good show!

Tom began his e-mail:

"If I cared about nothing but my subscription numbers and download statistics, I would have stayed far away from today's topic.

But I'm not going to do the show that way, and I know you wouldn't want me to.

On today's episode my guest and I discuss the Israel Lobby.

Personally, I don't see what's so controversial about it. Anyone who isn't a blockhead knows it exists, and some of its organizations even boast about their influence. But for some reason we're supposed to pretend it isn't there.

Not going to happen.

Today I talk to Grant Smith, director of research at the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy, about his new book Big Israel: How the Israel Lobby Moves America.

The Israel Lobby wants Americans to believe a particular narrative about Israel, the value of the U.S.-Israel relationship, and the best approach for American foreign policy. This was a narrative I myself believed for a long time until I bothered to look beyond the platitudes. This turned out to be just more of the state propaganda I thought I had emancipated myself from.

The discussion is eminently reasonable. However, I warn any delicate flowers that they may want to stay away.

As for the majority of you good folks, I know you'll enjoy the episode, and I continue to be grateful for your ongoing support."
