...is probably not the very best expression to use. American Jews heavily influencing Israels (foreign) policy is definitely a much better description for whats happening on the ground. Which leaves us with the same problematic as we are already witnessing for some time now in the U.S.: Is "heavily influencing" a synonym for (legiti- mate) lobbying or for (illegitimate) bullying...??? In the case of Israel (unlike in the U.S.), I would rather see it as legitimate lobbying. Which (with regard to its devastating effects) of course doesn't make it any better....
