Enlightening.  This is the most important book never to be discussed in the media.  Read it and you will understand why.

A must read for anyone who wants to understand the origins of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Terrific. Essential. This book is short (really, just an essay); loaded with supporting and supplementary citations; and packed to the brim with astonishing, extremely troubling information about a critical part of our history that most Americans have no clue about--in which corrupt or corrupted people at the highest levels of our government sold America down the river as a vassal of a foreign power, Israel. No one can understand American Middle East policy (and substantial elements of domestic policy) without knowing the devastating--and fully documented--information provided in this small, devastating volume.

A real snoozer, a book so poorly written that it literally put me to sleep multiple times. Weir's style is an insult to the written word. If anyone wants to understand the issues surrounding Palestine and Israel, I hope you would consider a Palestinian writer like Baroud or Abunimah, or a great read like Blumenthal's Goliath and leave this old white opportunist profiting off of another's tragedy well alone.

What an absolute sham. Truman DID NOT help build Israel and even placed an embargo on all material being sent to the country for building its air force. Anyone even caught leaving the US to help Israel automatically lost their citizenship. The author of this book should do more research before publishing such false and misleading information to the public.
