Against Our Better Judgment: The hidden history of how the U.S. was used to create Israel by Alison Weir

For over a century, Jewish political lobbies, pressure groups, media operators and agents have been dominating the United States' public life as well as its foreign policy.

(LONDON) - Alison Weir’s new book is by far the most comprehensive and precise expose of the depth of Zionist interference with American life in general and the politics of the United States in particular. It is a book every American should obtain, read and discuss openly.

In spite of its succinctness, the book is saturated with information and insights that are backed by valuable historical references and primary source quotes.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.

My main reaction after reading this was a big shrug. Ms. Weir thinks she has uncovered something highly significant. I don't see it; where's the beef. She says that in the early part of the 20th century there were 20k Zionists and in the 1940's there where a million Zionists. So what? Being a Zionist wasn't illegal then and isn't now. It's a free country. Anyone with half a heart and an ounce of compassion would have been a Zionist in the 1930's and 40's. Louis Brandeis and Felix Frankfurter were Zionists. Wow, what a shock! Of course they were. They were men of some influence and compassion who saw an opportunity to help resurrect and rescue a downtrodden people in Europe. What is their crime, assuming all the "sinister" accusations are true; Using friends and colleagues in positions of power to try to influence policy. Welcome to the world. Ms. Weir's naiveté is stunning. This was not long after the Dreyfues trial and some of the worst pogroms in history. Ms. Weir doesn't seem to understand the context of the times and imposes anachronistic standards in her critique. Irish Americans have advocated for pro Irish anti English policies; Cuban Americans have advocated for anti Castor pro boycott policies; Mexican Americans have advocated for immigration policies that benefit Mexican's. As Arabs grow in population and power they will do exactly the same thing to help the Palestinians and other Arabs. Only the Jews are forbidden? Ms. Weir puts a lot of stock in the opinions of the military and foreign policy establishments. Did she treat their opinions with the same reference when they said we should invade Iraq to protect US interests. Would she treat their words as the Gospel if they said we needed to bomb Iran for the same reasons. Ms Weir laments that Dorothy Thomson is no longer remembered. What journalists from decades past are. Does anyone today talk about Menken or Alsop or Gellhorn?
