In brief, Weir documents the efforts of Zionists to first cut a deal with England to support the creation of a Jewish homeland in Palestine contingent upon Jewish efforts to bring America into the Great War. After the second war Jewish efforts to gain American support for the creation of Israel are documented. Among the main players here are Louis Brandeis, Felix Frankfuter, and Bernard Baruch.
Most interesting to me was the buying of Harry Truman. Remember that campaign railroad trip? At one stop Weir tells of a Zionist giving Truman $2,000,000 in cash. Others also gave money to the point that Truman was bought and paid for. Also interesting was the Zionist efforts to get UN approval of the Jewish homeland. Threats against places like The Philippines and Liberia were made by the likes of Brandeis. It was play ball or we will see that you get no aid. Obviously the pressure was effective.
Finally, there are references to folks who opposed the Zionists. Guess what happened to the Saturday Evening Post. Remember Dorothy Thompson? Of course not. How about Hugh Gibson? Doesn't ring a bell does it. Well, how about James Forestal? Funny about his suicide. Kind of like Patton's auto-er-accident.
The book is short but effective. It explains very well why the Palestinians are angry to this day. It's funny how the truth always leaks out.
As a result, what we have received from the mainstream media is reams of propaganda and little truth when it comes to the racist and bellicose state.
Against this backdrop of censored "news," Alison Weir, took a dangerous stand and has been telling the truth about Israel for the last 10 years.
A Must read.
In spite of its succinctness, the book is saturated with information and insights that are backed by valuable historical references and primary source quotes. Since I am an avid reader of modern Jewish history, I was surprised to learn so much from such a relatively short text.
The story that is told by Weir is devastating – for more than a century, a matrix of Jewish political lobbies, pressure groups, media operators and agents within the American government and legal system have been dominating the United States' public life as well as its foreign policy. Consequently, the United States has been operating against its own best interests. It has compromised its most precious principles and even its own security.
For many years, it was largely Jews and people of the Left who dominated the Anti Zionist discourse. The outcome is very clear. The criticism of Zionism and Israel was partial and Judeo-centric by nature. It evaded broad scrutiny of Jewish power and the tribal operation involved. The majority of anti Zionist texts were designed to vindicate the Jews of crimes committed by the Jewish State and Zionism. Consequently, the anti Zionist discourse achieved very little as far as Palestinians are concerned. In fact, it was successful in diverting attention from the root cause of the conflict in the Middle East.
Weir however, approaches the topic from a completely different perspective. Weir is an American patriot. She examines the extensive Zionist operation that hijacked her country and robbed the United States of its most precious values. Weir points out that time after time there has been an ethical and political clash between American national interests and the policies dictated by the Jewish pressure groups.
Against Our Better Judgment throws light on the depth, intensity and the efficiency of Zionist operators within America. The book reveals a ferocious, unified and coordinated campaign by the Zionists, and it is far from clear that the American people can find the political and cultural means to deal with this form of foreign and immoral intervention. Weir’s new book is a crucial and bold step in an attempt of a nation to restore its immune system.
