Gorilla in the room

The now deceased Edward Said once said that the last great taboo in America is that country’s relationship with Israel. It’s rarely discussed in Australia, either, though I’ll be examining it throughout my upcoming book on the Israel/Palestine conflict, out with MUP in early 2006.

Gorilla in the Room is a new blog based in Washington, dedicated to “shattering the taboo on discussion of Israel’s “Agents of Influence”. It’s a fascinating read and deconstructs the incestuous alliances between pro-Israel lobbyists such as AIPAC, the Bush administration and the formulation of foreign policy.
