Read Scott Horton's new book Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan

Grant Smith returns to the show to discuss his latest articles, “Why Gallup Overstates American Sympathy for Israel” and “Israel Advocacy Groups Demand Questionable Changes to Virginia Textbooks.” Smith explains the problems with Gallup’s polling methodology and why the real sentiments of Americans are less favorable to Israel than they’re made out out to be by Gallup. Smith then touches on his second article about how a group of pro-Israel groups are trying to pressure the Department of Education into changing the maps of the Middle East to reflect Israeli political goals and propaganda.

Grant F. Smith is the author of a number of books including “Big Israel: How Israel’s Lobby Moves America” and “Divert!”. He is director of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy in Washington, D.C.
