The irony of this book is that the authors are suspicious of Israel???s peaceful means of influencing American foreign policy, namely diplomacy, rationale, and lobbyists. Terrorists use violence to influence American foreign policy and this book suggests we listen. The book???s primary position is that terrorism, while wrong, is understandable. It claims that America should not support Israel mainly because it is unpopular among other Middle-eastern countries. The solution became a broken record. When people begin behaving violently to the point of terrorism, no matter how irrational their actions get, no matter how ignorant their justifications may be, no matter how violent their reprisals???.the US should regard this behavior as EQUAL to the democratic self-determinism of Israel. In other words, the US should appease terrorists and stop supporting Israel for strategic reasons???because it might make us more popular with those nations hostile to Israel. 20 hours of THIS point.
I thought the book was totally biased to the point i had to stop reading it. its easy to criticize and throw out allegations when no one can respond to them. there were also some intresting facts that i didnt know existed between the two countrys united states and israel.
The authors of this book are totally anti-Israel
in their assessment of the Israel Lobby.They take
the typical liberal-left knee-jerk anti-Israel position.The book is full of vast exaggerations
and gross distortions of reality.
