How powerful is the Jewish lobby in America is the central theme the film explores. Considering the pro-Israeli attitude of every recent U.S. administration, it is often suggested that the Jewish lobby dictates Washington's Middle East policy. AIPAC does make and break the careers of politicians, like the NRA and the former Christian Coalition. But does this organization really have a major influence on U.S. foreign policy? In THE LOBBY people from varying backgrounds, with diverse political attitudes give their opinion on this matter. Some of those interviewed include: Steven Grossman - former president of AIPAC. Malcolm Hoenlein - Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations representative. Denise Majette - Georgia congresswoman. J.J. Goldberg - Jewish weekly Forward editor. Janet McMahon - Washington Report editor. Noam Chomsky - MIT professor. The opinions of these and the other interviewees form a rounded, rational and unemotional conversation about an often-avoided subject.
