Comments of Iran Negotiations – Wall Street Journal, September 13, 2015

Israeli prime ministers have been active on Capitol Hill for decades.  Neal Sher, who in the mid 1990’s served as AIPAC’s executive director, recalls telling Israeli Prime Minister Itzhak Rabin, “there is no more respected lobbyist on the Hill than he”

Mr. Sher said the difference was that Mr. Rabin and President Bill Clinton saw eye to eye on the Middle East peace process then under discussion, whereas Messrs. Netanyahu and Obama have staked out opposite sides in the Iran debate.

“It’s gone on before” Mr. Sher said of the lobbying efforts, “But never like this.”
