To get power anywhere is not easy as there are many candidates, the winners have special qualities. In democratic America you cannot be serious that AIPAC decides/influences decisively US policy. Proof is that this policy has changed since 9/11. You should also not underestimate the intelligence and capabilities of officials in the administration. Arabs are steadily trying to slander Israel! In facts Arabs have more influence everywhere than the small Israel and the few Jews. Arabs have enormous ressources, 25 + voices at the UN but a few weak leaders (MMr Amadinejad, Haniyeh) and conduct terrors.
