Soon after WWII, U.S. 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 U.S. support enabled the creation of modern Israel. Even fewer know that U.S.
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.
