*Now Available on DVD: The **Israel** Lobby Debate at Cooper Union,
**New York City*
October 31, 2006

The debate on the "Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy," a paper by
Profs. John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago and Stephen Walt of
Harvard University, sparked a lively debate at the Peter Cooper Union in
New York City on September 28, 2006. The debate, in which pro-Israel
lobbyists Martin Indyk and Dennis Ross, plus former Israel Foreign
Minister Shlomo Ben Ami, debated Prof. Mearsheimer, Prof. Rashid Khalidi
of Columbia University, and Prof. Tony Judt of New York University was
one of the most fascinating discussions on the power of the lobby. It
provided a great public service to the American people who are rarely
allowed to discuss the lobby and its workings. It was thanks to the
British London Review of Books that it was staged in the U.S.  It will
probably not be repeated.

CNIF sent a film crew to New York to film the debate, and the DVD is now
available. "The Tipping Point: Changing Perceptions of the U.S.-Israel
Relationship: A Debate" also contains as a bonus feature footage of
Profs. Mearsheimer and Walt at the National Press Club presenting the
main features of their paper and a discussion of the lobby's efforts to
promote and prolong the Israel-Hezbollah War of July-August 2006.

The DVD costs $14.95 plus $3 postage and packing. Order your copy of the
DVD through the CNI website
