Format: Paperback
I feel that this book is a must read for all Americans interested in U.S. - Middle East relations and the challenges to formulating a more balanced and just policies. Paul Findley, an Illinois Congressman for 22 years, examines the role of pro-Israel special interest groups in heavily influencing public officials and policy makers into making biased and counterproductive decisions impacting our relationship with the countries of an important region of the world.
Findley has carefully researched and examined the extent of pro-Israel lobbying in this nation. While he defends the rights of American citizens to support causes they feel a moral obligation to, he argues eloquently that the interests of another country should never be placed above the interests of the United States.
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in understanding the importance of having balanced foreign policies, particularly at a time when the United States is trying to serve as an honest broker to resolving conflicts in the Middle East and elsewhere. It was educational and a real eye opener to me, a seeker of truth and objectivity.

One of the most compelling, engrossing books I have ever read. Paul Findley carefully and objectively presents the facts of pro-Israeli influence in America. Most disturbing of all is the degree of influence the Israeli lobby has over Congress. Because of the powerful influence over voters in congressional districts and large amounts of financial backing they provide to candidates, the Israeli lobby has had its way with American interests. The book patently explains why we donate over 3 billion dollars a year of aid to Israel--half of the total foreign aid. Findley's investigation of covert and overt Israeli influence in academia, church, and community affairs is often quite shocking and disturbing. It is no surprised it was a Washington Post bestseller for 9 weeks. A must-read indeed, for any informed individual.

A highly edifying and enlightening book. It objectively analyzes the historical relationship the Israeli lobby has had with the American congress, as well as with religious and academic institutions. For the previous reviewer to say Findley is anti-Israeli is outright slanderous. First of all, during Findley's tenure 22 year tenure as a Congressman, he consistently voted in favor of aid to Israel. As for the other charges that the reviewer makes, those too are also false. An example of another Congressman that was defeated by the Israeli lobby is Paul McCloskey of California. And a careful review of basic American foriegn aid for the past thirty years reveals that Israel has consistently been the top destination of American foreign aid--both financial and military. Egypt, or any country for that matter, has never received more aid than Israel. As for the other accusations that the previous reviewer makes, it would come as no surprise to me if they were similarly baseless.

This book is the first of many to inform US citizens, in an unbiased fashion, of the true underpinnings of US policy in the Middle East. It is by no means anti-semitic propoganda, and anyone who wants to know why there are Isreali spies in our country, why Isreal is the only country in the middle east to not sign nuclear arm agreements, why Isreal sunk the USS Liberty in 1967, and why we are continually at odds with muslim nations (among other invaluable information) should read this book.

Paul Findley analyzes America's pro-Israeli lobbyists and how they compromise National Interest for policy favoring Israel. The author documents the Zionist forces and the tremendous influence these lobbies have over our Congress. Throughout the book, numerous examples are given of how policy has been shaped and how Congressman are reluctant to challenge PACs like AIPAC and NatPAC. The insight provided by this book should be a must read for any student of American History or Political Science.

I couldn't put this book down. Well written, well refernced and a must-read for all interested in world affairs. The double standard (which is old news to some) in America's political system, educational institutions and - especially - news media has finally been exposed. I gasped when I read about the USS Liberty and found that Mr.Findley's views on the reasons behind the 9/11 tragedy were spot-on.
Mr.Findley, congratulations on an excellent book and thank you for daring to speak out.

Findley does a remarkable job in trying to shed light on the immense political pull of the Israeli lobby. Politics is by no means fair nor just. Mr. Findley chose his profession but one can understand and appreciate the work that went into documenting the facts in this book.
I would conclude by saying that reading Findley's book introduced me to the Council for the National Interest where I was shocked to read that a so-called ally and "friend" of ours, Benjamin Netanyahu recently threatened, "I will set fire to Washington." How dare someone threaten our country. Its a shame we don't have more patriots instead of politicians. Otherwise, our Congressman would have sat up and taken notice.
