Findley outlines a strong anti-Israeli position. Using provocative themes to set the tone, he delves into three aspects of the Arab-Israeli conflict: "Statehood and Conquest," "Collusion and Conflict," and "Perils to Peace." Basing his argument upon a notion that all problems can be separated into two clear and unequivocal ideal positions of right and wrong, Findley popularizes a highly complex social and political conflict.

"The first book to speak out against the pervasive influence of AIPAC (American-Israeli Public Affairs Committee) on American politics, policy, and institutions resonates today as never before. With careful documentation and specific case histories, Findley demonstrates how the Israel lobby helps to shape important aspects of U.S. foreign policy and influences congressional, senatorial, and even presidential elections. He describes the stranglehold AIPAC exerts in the House and the Senate and the undue pressure the lobby brings to bear on university professors and journalists. This completely updated edition includes details on the current administration and brings together all the new voices speaking out, including former President Jimmy Carter, U.S. Representative Cynthia McKinney, Senator Robert Byrd, prominent Arab American Dr. Ziad Asali, Rabbi Michael Lerner, and journalist Charley Reese. Findley laments the lack of open debate among politicians with regard to U.S. policy in the Middle East and blames AIPAC. He also draws connections between America's unconditional support of Israel and raging anti-American passions around the world -- and ultimately the tragic events of 9/11. Book jacket."--Jacket.
