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.
Mr.Findley, congratulations on an excellent book and thank you for daring to speak out.
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.
