Andrew and Leslie Cockburns 1991 book on Israels relations with the C.I.A is still a valuable book with regard to the reality of the Israeli States involvement in the world at large.

It details a diverse range of issues from the arms deals to Iran which continued seamlessly from the Shah to the Ayatolah, Israeli involvement with the right wing dictatorships of Central America, its collaboration with apartheid era South Africa on weapons programmes (nuclear and conventional), its kidnapping and murder operations overseas aswell as spying and industrial espionage in the United States.

Even for the most hardened cynic of Israeli actions (based on a study of reality not prejudice) will be astonished at the sheer opportunism and sickening character of Israeli actions including arms sales and training to Columbian drug cartels. The nature of the Israeli Arms industry is curtly summed up in the statement of an industry executive bemoaning the "threat of peace" and the end of the murderous wars of Central America.

Other issues involve the Israelis contempt for the sovereignty of other nations - witness the ham fisted murder of a Norwegian waiter of Morrocan origins in front of his pregnant girlfriend and the abduction of the courageous Israeli whistle blower Vanunu from Italy.

There is no limit to the opportunism of the Israeli establishment, "Is it good for Israelis?" seems to be the only measure - morals, ethics are just not in the picture. Even their closest allies in the U.S. are treated with contempt from time to time for instance the Israelis had intelligence relating to the truck bombing of U.S. personnel in Lebanon in 1983 but didnt pass it on.

One looks forward to the day the Israelis are put in their place, ie.

You will understand only after you have read it.

You will have a much clearer understanding if you also read Rabbi Marvin Antelman's ETO as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars a very important subject most fear to write/talk about 21 Nov. 2011
By openlotus - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is a must read, well laid out and the author's subtle humour lends a measure of elegence to the writing.

Most wars are for profit, and this book sheds more light about the connection between Israel and Iran Contra. I am amazed at the interviews he obtained with some of these Israelis. And some of their candid remarks about how they feel about "Gentiles". Not very suprising really, as history has shown us. Nevertheless its a must read as Israel is prolific in their entaglement for profit and otherwise in a lot of the ugliest killings around the world. Its sad to read then and even now how civilians are slaughtered by killers trained and supplied by Israel, and then for the Israeli trainers to say, they don't care what Gentiles do with the bombs as long as Israelis make a profit.

Most US government as so afraid to speak the truth about Israel, witness how Netanyahoo lectures Obama to a White house audience, how the Israeli bombing and killing of US sailors on USS Liberty, etc, etc, is never addressed by the US government, and in fact the information is suppressed. And we think we are the superpower?? The truth is we have been hit by a deadly virus that has infilttrated all levels of government using greed, blackmail and other tools. You won't hear our "patriots" take on this virus!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books available on US and Israel 29 Dec. 2008
By J. A. Bujes - Published on
Format: Paperback
After the second intifada, I spent well over a year researching the history of zionism and the founding of the state of Israel. This book is one of the best I read that year: it is beautifully written, engaging, sensible, and thoroughly researched. The authors know how to tell a story and they know how to explain a fairly complex and ever-shifting history, without simplifying that story. This book is a must read for anyone interested in the history of zionism and of the United States in the 20th century. An impressive achievement.
