Israel's assumption is that something like the present US support for Israel will continue indefinitely. Suppose that were not so? In the foreign policy apparatus, where despite figures like Ambassador Shapiro, Gentiles far outnumber Jews, many CIA, miiutary and State Deoartmehnt officers are indignant at the arrogance and brutality (as they see it) of the Israel lobby. At some poiht, a group of US politicians seeking a decided change will not hesitate to raise the issue of dual loyalty. Quite apart from the prominence of extremely cultivated figures like Haim Saban and Sheldon Adelson, the leaders of offical American Jewry are not conspicuous for subtlety or depth of historical thought. They suppose that their present influence will continue indefinitely. They may be wrong: what then?
