In this excellent book, Alison Weir shows how Zionist Jewish "Americans" have gained costly and almost unconditional military and economic support for their country of first loyalty (Israel) while harming the United States on many levels.

The story goes back some way and she looks at the influx of immigrants who arrived in the United States at the turn of the century and after WW1 and WW2. Most came from Europe and took American citizenship becoming Americans first with their various languages and countries of origin a distant second . This was the famous American "melting pot".

The author shows that Jewish immigration to the US had a different characteristic, with many Jews having no intention of intermarrying with Gentiles (becoming Goys) and developing a first loyalty to the ethnically exclusive Jewish state of Israel (ie becoming Zionists). For many, their preferred solution was a Jewish "state within a state" in the US and a rejection of the "melting pot". There wasn't actually anything new in this as Jews had traditionally lived apart from local populations guarding their racial integrity and religion and being quite distinct from Russians, Poles , Hungarians, Germans etc. despite having lived in these countries for generations.

The confusion in the US was that they were introduced into American society in the same way as all other immigrants on the unwritten understanding that they would adopt a new American loyalty and identity. This didn't happen of course, and Weir catalogues the persistent Jewish tribal patronage and self-selection that appeared in the US at all levels inside and outside government.

Supreme Court justice Louis Brandeis, for example was a hidden political Zionist, for many years promoting fellow Zionists while officially renouncing all political affiliations. It is more than obvious that as a Supreme Court justice he should have been putting the interests of the United States first rather than those of Israel (Jews were about 2% of the US population in 1930's and are about the same proportion today).

Weir conclusively shows how US society was and is being drained economically (over 200 billion dollars since WW2) and militarily to support the Israeli economy, fight their enemies, provide them with the latest military technology and defend their decades long abuse of Palestinians in the UN with an automatic veto.

An obvious question after reading the book is, Where does the US go from here? The author doesn't look to provide an answer, which isn't a criticism, since the object of the book is to illuminate the way in which the US administration and media have been hijacked by militant Zionists.

If this reviewer is obliged to take a guess, the first observation could be that it's rather late in the day.
Truman in the 1940's and 50's could probably have defended American interests and faced off Zionist pressure, but he rather took the bribe and promoted his own electoral chances and personal gain. Repeat this story for 70 more years of political Zionist threats and bribes and one has the present corrupt and subservient US congress and a cowed media trumpeting Zionist scripts.

The situation is also probably more dangerous than it appears for the 98% non-Jewish majority of the US population, since, despite the Zionists best efforts, there is a rising awareness of the Zionist abuse of US institutions.

Their lobbyists have been unsuccessful in initiating a US attack on Iran (Iraq exhaustion + a weak economy + failed candidate McCain) and have also failed to overcome the 2nd Amendment (Colorado recall experience) to remove guns from the US population, so in a sense things are on a downward slope.

If history is any guide, and if one accepts that past actions are the best guide to future actions, then Jewish activists could take a gamble and fix the problem by using their power to launch a coup/emergency regime in the US in the same way that they did in Russia in 1917 (when they saw that they couldn't gain absolute power through the All Russia Constitutional Convention).

They could then bomb Iran at will and disarm US citizens without having to play any more Democratic games.

UPDATE 13th May 2015:

It's becoming increasingly clear that 9/11 was the coup and it didn't quite turn out as planned. See Christopher Bollyn's revealing book, Solving 9-11: The Deception That Changed the World ( )

"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, Publisher, Washington Report on Middle East Affairs.

 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.
