Format: Paperback
Although this book may be considered shocking, it only exposed the truths about the Israel lobby in the USA. If you follow the US politics, you won't be surprised by what the author is talking about, they are facts that most people know about but are too afraid to talk about. Strongly recommanded for people who have enough if the lies.

Ordinary Americans do not know much about the power of the Israel Lobby.

President Obama and all other politicians should read this book.

Format: Paperback
Anyone can twist the facts to suit their purposes, and Petras is an old hand when it comes to Jews and Israel. All the usual cliches are trotted out, Jews are all bankers, we have all the money, we use it to adversely influence US policy. I'm surprised he hasn't blamed us for the subprime crisis and Britney Spears downfall. Probably in a forthcoming book.

Facts you won't see in the controlled-media Nov. 28 2006
By S. Swink - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book by a left-of-center author analyzes and documents of the power of Israel via the Israeli, Jewish and Pro-Zionist Lobbies on US Middle East policy. It questions the primary beneficiary of US policy, and its destructive results for the United States. It explores the extraordinary extent of US political, economic, military and diplomatic support for the state of Israel, along with the means whereby such support is generated and consolidated. Zionist power in America ensures unconditional US backing for Israeli colonization of Palestine and its massive uprooting of Palestinians. It contends that the interests of Israel rather than those of Big Oil are the primary cause of the disastrous US wars against Iraq and threats of war against Iran and Syria. It also explores the AIPAC spying scandal and other Israeli espionage against America. It questions the inability in America to sustain or even formulate a discourse related to the subject of Israeli influence on the United States. Finally, it calls for a review of American Mid East policy with a view to reclaiming US independence of action based upon enlightened self-interest and progressive principles.

Spectacular Accomplishment Dec 6 2006
By Drew Hunkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Petras seems to cover it all in this scathing and incredibly well informed analysis of Zionist control over United States decision making regarding the Middle East. He proffers a myriad of statistics augmenting his point that the Jewish Lobby is ultimately in the driver's seat when the Pentagon, State Department and Executive Branch deliberate on Middle Eastern policy, and carry out their policy objectives in that region of the world. The Power of Israel in the United States is such a scholarly and well sourced book that it's hard not to laugh in the face of those who scream accusations of anti-Semite at anyone who happens to be toting the book about.

It does an excellent job in explaining how the Jewish Lobby in Washington greatly desired a fragmented Iraq which would pose no threat to Israel's continued ethnic-cleansing of Palestinians and Israel's illegal land grabs into the occupied territories. The Israel-Firsters have pretty much gotten exactly what they wanted: Iraq is indeed turning into a fractured state which will likely end up a tripartite entity virtually powerless to effect change in the Middle East -- cheers from the Israel-Firsters are no doubt echoing from Tel Aviv and AIPAC headquarters.

Naturally Petras points out how the Jewish Lobby is acting consistently on behalf of a foreign power that is outside the reach of American voters. He explains the truism (a truism to anyone garnering information outside major United States media channels) about how the U.S. Congress is completely subservient to Israel and how both Republicans and Democrats are major recipients of the campaign cash emanating from the coffers of the Israel Lobby. Democratic congressional candidates receive roughly 60% of their campaign contributions from Israel-Firsters while GOP candidates receive approximately 35% of their total campaign contributions from the Jewish Lobby. To believe either party on Capitol Hill will buck this stranglehold is delusional.

Petras is truly dedicated to world peace; he explains that one critical step in curbing Middle Eastern violence is for Israel to relinquish its colonial occupation over Palestine. Clearly mainstream media sources will stay as far away from this book as possible given Zionist power over most major media outlets in America. Petras' seminal work should be on the bookshelf of every citizen who considers themselves well informed, and vast passages should be duly highlighted.

A Must Read Jan. 10 2007
By Andrew Burroughs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Given American's unprecedented military involvement in the Middle East- we have invaded a soveriegn Arab nation based on contrived false assumption, we have allowed Israel (our supposed ally) in invade Lebanon, decimate Gaza and to further colonize the West Bank regardless of the consequence to US strategic interests, it is time to ask "why." Recently we have seen several courageous, credible Americans put forth theories that US Middle East policy has been highjacked by a highly organized political lobby made up of pro-Israeli Jews and so-called Christian Zionists. The works of Professors Mearsheimer and Walt and President Jimmy Carter come to mind. Petras paints a picture of an international organized pro-Israeli lobby that has one mission- advancing the strategic political and military interests of a foreign power. This is without precedent in American history. Although we had other "ethnic based" lobbies (the pro-Taiwanese Chinese lobby of the 1950s, the Cuban lobby in Miami, and the pro-IRA lobby of Irish-Americans), non of these has been able to so capture the entire regional policy of the United States. In fact, Petras argues that the Jewish lobby bears direct responsibility for the Iraq war and the current effort to manipulate the United States to attack Iran and Syria. Sadly, the facts are on Professor Petras' side. One interesting fact that I did not know and was not reported in the US media was the so-called Danish cartoon controversy was caused by a Ukranian, Mossad connected Jew who went by the phony name of Flemming Rose. Petras documents that this was part of a deliberate strategy to further isolate the Muslim world from the West. It is interesting to note that most of the anti-Muslim diatribes being printed in the US media are for the most part written and produced by individuals with close, known pro-Israeli proclivities and generally Jewish. These are indisputable facts the Petras supports with solid references. Petras warns us to beware! Excellent, easy to read, well documented work.

America--Israel's puppet March 14 2007
By Tim Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The question remains, "Will Petras suffer the same outcome as Professors Mearshiemer and Walt?" At least Petras is an Emeritas professor
but because I believe everything that he wrote in this extraordinarily brave, insiteful and prophetic book I fear for his safety. Yes--it is easily within the realm of possibility that bad things could mysteriously befall Petras in the next months, after the dust settles and the memory of all that he has written in this powerful book fades.

I am not one iota surprised by all that Petras has written; the enormity of the threat posed by Israel and its Lobby in the United States has been maturing for the decades that I have been a student of world affairs. There can be no question about this statement regardless of the vociferous denials spalashed on every contradictory statement that ever appears in print or on the electronic media. How can there possibly be a resonably intelligent exchange of views and opinions about the world's most malignant cancer--contemporary Middle East affairs, when one of the major players uses any form of dissuation and disinformation to minimize that debate?

The Power of Israel in the United States raises so many points germane to the current discussion about this most important area of the world. Obviously, of all that Petras writes, the expansion of Israel into what the Zionists call Greater Israel is the most important. When 9/11 happened I told Diane that America was protecting its parent state, Israel, because only the US was powerful enough to withstand the opinion firestorm that would follow an attack on Iraq. Nothing that I have read since then disaproves this original opinion. Petras agrees with the general idea in all of chapter one and speciffically on P. 25 and p. 28.

I feel bad because I still have this childish notion that countries will not drop to the depths of evil but that what looks bad is just something I do not understand--how wrong Petras has proven that I was. On page 86, Petras solves one of the most puzzling events of this murderous assault on Iraq and that was the looting of Baghdad's national archaeological museum. This destruction of one of Western civilization's premier collections of our heritage ranks as a war crime of the highest order and I could not understand how even the incompetant American army could allow it to happen. Now however, after Petras explains what the invasion was about, all the pieces fall into place. I childishly thought that only the Nazi army in Warsaw and the Soviet Union called for the total destruction of the Slavic nation's intellectual and historical infastructure. After reading chapter six, I realize this evil is open to any players and I am ashamed. Poor stupid me; I guess I had better grow up.

If you are not afraid, read this book: underline it, take notes about it but most importantly absorb it. It really is that important!

The Stealth of Israel - Beyond Your Imagination March 8 2007
By Virginia Kind P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book for those who suspect the stupendous influence of a foreign government on our own. It deals with Israel and it's Zion-con agents within and without our government. It is divided into standalone topics - every one of which is an eye-opener in itself. Well written and researched this book is a very valuable tool and historic reference.

For those who have ignored the reckless, unfair and dangerous path we have adopted in the Mid-East it is a must for understanding the overall situation. For those who have watched in horror while the U.S. has become more and more entrenched in operations - over which we have seemingly little or no control - think again and read this book. It is a must! Incidentally, 'seemingly' is the keyword.

P.S. Encourage your local library to buy this book and also buy this book; you will not be sorry!
