Harvard Anti-Semitic Dean Attacks �Israel Lobby�

Thanks Neal for prompting me to address this.
The Harvard Crimson :: Dean Attacks �Israel Lobby�: In an attack on what they termed the �Israel Lobby,� the Kennedy School�s Stephen M. Walt and the University of Chicago�s John J. Mearsheimer argued in a recent article that supporters of Israel have seized control of U.S. foreign policy toward the Middle East, making it reflect Israel�s interests more than those of the U.S.

The Harvard Crimson :: KSG Seeks Distance from Paper: �Since the furor, Bob Belfer has called expressing his deep concerns and asked that Stephen not use his professorship title in publicity related to the article,� the source told The Sun.
My response is:

The charge of a malevolent organized Jewish conspiracy is the most blatant form of anti-Semitism. In this 21st century, I find it insufficient that the Kennedy School of Government removed its logo from a the scurrilous paper published last week by Academic Dean Stephen M. Walt and the University of Chicago�s John J. Mearsheimer.

I find it insufficient that the most prominent educational institution in the world added a more prominent disclaimer stating that the classic racist views expressed in that work belong only to the authors.

I call on Harvard -- take that paper off your server and issue an apology to all persons of learning and conscience.
