Quote that will make half my audience exult and half angered

Asuming half of you care, of course.

From the “Angry Arab News Service

I had a chance to ask John Mearsheimer yesterday at the University of Chicago about his experience since the publication of his article (with Stephen Walt) and later book about the Israeli lobby. He permitted me to cite on the blog: he told me that he had published 11 op-ed pieces in the New York Times before the appearance of the article on the Israeli lobby. Two of those were solicited by the Times. He said that after the appearance of the article, he has not published one op-ed piece and the ones he sent were rejected. He said that his speaking engagements went through a steep decline as a result.
