The Walt/Mearsheimer Debate: Tonight on <em>Open Source with Christopher Lydon</em>


Tonight at 7 p.m., Christopher Lydon who produces a nationally-syndicated program with Boston’s National Public Radio affiliate will be hosting a show titled “The Israel Lobby?” which will try to dig into some of the issues surfaced by the recent article on the Israel lobby co-authored by Harvard’s Stephen Walt and the University of Chicago’s John Mearsheimer.
I will be on the program tonight as will Daniel Levy, policy and international director for the Geneva Initiative in Israel and author of one of the more thoughtful critiques of the Walt/Mearsheimer paper that appeared just today in the International Herald Tribune after previously appearing in Haaretz. Also on the show will be Daniel Drezner, a fellow blogger and Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Chicago.
The program will stream over the web and airwaves tonight starting at 7 p.m. Click here for the live web stream; here to listen at your local NPR station nationwide, and here to listen on XM Radio.
