Kurzbeschreibung

"Prodigiously documented... Alison Weir must be highly commended for throwing such a brilliantly hard light on the relationship between the United States and Israel. I hope this marvelous book gets all the attention it deserves." – Ambassador Andrew Killgore

Soon after WWII, US statesman Dean Acheson warned that creating Israel on land already inhabited by Palestinians would “imperil” both American and all Western interests in the region. Despite warnings such as this one, President Truman supported establishing a Jewish state on land primarily inhabited by Muslims and Christians.

Few Americans today are aware that US support enabled the creation of modern Israel. Even fewer know that US politicians pushed this policy over the forceful objections of top diplomatic and military experts.

As this work demonstrates, these politicians were bombarded by a massive pro-Israel lobbying effort that ranged from well-funded and very public Zionist organizations to an “elitist secret society” whose members included Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis.
AGAINST OUR BETTER JUDGMENT brings together meticulously sourced evidence to illuminate a reality that differs starkly from the prevailing narrative. It provides a clear view of the history that is key to understanding one of the most critically important political issues of our day.

"This provocative book documents a history that is essential in understanding today’s world. Scholarly, yet readable, it is a must for all Americans." – Senator James Abourezk

"If you never read another book, read this one." – The Daily Kos diaries

Von Ferri

.
Hier liest man wissenswertes über ein Konflikt, das nun über 60 Jahre andauert.

Alison Weir erklärt mit verständlichen Worten, warum die meisten Menschen es nicht verstehen können, warum es keine Lösung zu diesem Konflikt gibt.

Sie unterstellt, dass skrupellose Amerikanische Politiker, aus Eigeninteresse, die Palästinenser geopfert haben, damit sie die Gunst der Israel-Lobby gewinnen. Die westlichen Medien sollen, aus dem selben Grund, all diese Jahre Falsches verbreitet haben und somit ein trügerisches Bild dargestellt haben. Die von Ihr angegebenen Fakten unterstützen diese generelle Aussage; was die tatsächlichen Fakten sind, muss jeder für sich entscheiden.

Wer gut Englisch versteht kommt mit diesem kurzen Buch zurecht. Besser wäre eine Deutsche Übersetzung.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It's Hard to Argue Against the Facts! 18. März 2014
Von Stanley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Author Weir candidly states in her preface that her book has "unusual aspects." It certainly does with 93 pages of text and 107 pages of endnotes. That being said, there can be no argument that her book is not well researched with its 373 references.

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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well written and 100% accurate .... 1. März 2014
Von Michael Santomauro - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
For over 60 years, since its creation in 1948, the state of Israel has carefully controlled what the Western world knows about the Zionist state.

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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen If Americans only knew 16. März 2014
Von eileen fleming - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
If Americans only knew the background story regarding U.S. policies that have colluded against a just peace in Israel Palestine---today's foreign policies could end tomorrow.

President Lincoln said he was a "firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts."

"Against Our Better Judgement" presents many facts that could help end "the passionate attachment" that U.S. State Department officials warned President Truman against.

Weir has written a must read for Middle East pundits and US Politicians which should also be included in U.S. high school history classes.

I bought this work soon as it showed up on Amazon. I could not drop it until I finished it. A must read if you are interested in the historical roots of the injustices that plague the Palestinian people.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A book every American should obtain, read and discuss openly. 20. März 2014
Von Mr. Gilad Atzmon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
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.
