History of the US-Israel Relationship, Part 1; How the "Special Relationship" was createdQuicklink submitted by Joan Mootry Permalink
|Many are led to believe that US support for Israel is driven by the American establishment and U.S. national interests, but the facts don't support this theory. The reality is that for decades U.S. experts opposed Israel and its founding movement. But they were simply outmaneuvered and eventually replaced. - Like many American policies, U.S. Middle East policies are driven by a special interest lobby. It has targeted virtually every significant sector of American society; involved Americans in tragic, unnecessary, and profoundly costly wars; dominated Congress for decades; determined which candidates became contenders for the U.S. presidency; and promoted bigotry toward an entire population, religion and culture.|
