Wot no lobby?

The current invasion of the Lebanon by Israel leads to a number of interesting questions. Not least of which is: whither the Mearsheimer and Walt thesis? I mean, in light of this? 'Tony Blair is publicly highly supportive of Israel and has declined to call for an immediate ceasefire. But some in the Foreign Office are now privately urging greater restraint by Israel amid concern that the scale of the bombardment is counter-productive, disproportionate, and undermining the political stability of the Lebanese government.' Tony Blair has been the most pro-Israel PM...well.....ever. And yet, where is the Israel lobby in the UK? We know that Blair leans towards the US. But where is the US lobby?
