Alison Weir is committed to the vision of an America that champions peace, living peace with others and so creating a future that can assume both peace and prosperity as a fact of life. To accomplish that goal we need to understand the history of conflict in the Middle East and move forward to an agenda that finds solutions to ongoing conflict, identifying the wrongs done and providing justice that heals the wounds of that conflict.

That process begins with the truth, rejecting the mythologies and rationalizations used to justify generations of reactive behavior that has impacted uncounted millions of lives.

Palestine is occupied territory. So is America as long as we, the people, do not have the truth that enables us to take action that heals the breeches of trust that now divide us one from another across all lines.

In 2004 Ms. Weir was inducted into honorary membership of Phi Alpha Literary Society, founded in 1845 at Illinois College. The award cited her as a: "Courageous journalist-lecturer on behalf of human rights. The first woman to receive an honorary membership in Phi Alpha history."

"Ms. Weir presents a powerful, well documented view of the Middle East today. She is intelligent, careful, and critical. American policy makers would benefit greatly from hearing her first-hand observations and attempting to answer the questions she poses. This is an intellectual, thought-provoking, and worthwhile presentation." - - Thomas Campbell, Former US Senator, Dean of Haas School of Business, University of California, and Director, California Department of Finance.

Alison established If Americans Knew to keep American informed on breaking events.

The Problems Americans face that Alison Weir can help you understand:

Why the mainstream media is failing to give Americans the truth about Israel and Palestine.

How US foreign aid to Israel is killing innocent people and enabling a train of circumstance that could lead to world war.

Who is profiting from genocide?

How we can exit from the Grids that now doom our children to ever more lies and violence.
