    WATCH IT HERE: http://www.filmdiy.com/explore/filmdiy/war-documentary/the-lobby 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.

          Frank Barat asks Prof Noam Chomsky 6 questions that were sent by Alice Walker, John Berger, Ken Loach, Paul Laverty, Amira Hass and Chris Hedges. Interview starts with question from John Berger: Political practice often surprises political vocabulary. For example, the recent Revolution in the Middle East is said to demand Democracy. Can we find more adequate words? Isn't the use of the old and frequently betrayed words a way of absorbing the shock, instead of welcoming it and transmitting it further? 05:20: Chris Hedges Julien Benda in The Treason of Intellectuals argued that it is only when intellectuals are not in the pursuit of practical aims or material advantages that they can serve as a conscience and a corrective.  Can you address the loss of philosophers, religious leaders, writers, journalists, artists and scholars whose lives were once lived in direct opposition to the realism of the multitudes and what this has meant for our intellectual and moral life? 11:51: Amira Hass Have the uprisings in the arab states made you change, revise some of your past evaluations? Have they - and how - affected your notions of, for example :masses, hope, facebook, poverty, western intervention, surprise? 22:06: Ken Loach How do we overcome sectariasnism on the left? 25:44: Paul Laverty There has probably never been a time where there has been such concentration of wealth and power in so few hands.  The powerful are sophisticated in maintaining this state of affairs, but perhaps we use this too as an excuse to hide our shortcomings on the left.  What do you think has been lacking in our imaginative effort to build a mass international campaign to democratise resources, and challenge Corporate Power?  Can you imagine a time where we can organise our lives and economies successfully on a co-operative basis, rather than a competitive one? 35:05: Alice Walker I believe that a one state solution to the Palestine/Israel impasse is inevitable;  and more just than a two state solution could ever be. This is because I don't believe Israel will ever give up trying to control Palestinians, whether citizens of Israel or those living in the occupied territories.  Under a two state solution there would be Israel and a Palestinian bantustan. I have been struck by your dismissal of the one state idea as something almost absurd, and would like to understand why you see it this way. Is there no hope that Israelis and Palestinians might live together as white and black people do, after the fall of apartheid, in South Africa? Frank Barat is coordinator of the Russell Tribunal on Palestine, an initiative endorsed by Noam Chomsky. http://www.russelltribunalonpalestine.com/en/ "Gaza in Crisis: Reflections on Israel's War Against the Palestinians" a book by Noam Chomsky and Ilan Pappe (edited by Frank Barat) is out now. http://www.gazaincrisis.org/
