Ruthie Blum crystallizes the naive, dangerous, and possibly the pre-meditated antagonistic view of Israel by the Carter and Obama administrations.

It's one thing to have a private personal bias toward another nation and be a US leader who governs by principle. It's quite another to allow that personal bias to set aside absolutes of moral conduct for Situation Ethics toward another nation. When a leader governs that way, tyranny results. Recounting the conduct of the Carter and Obama Administrations toward Israel, Ms. Blum factually traces the insidious laying aside of principle by Messrs. Carter and Obama to impose demands on Israel.

Should US actions toward Israel be made relative to the conditions of the Middle East without a standard of principle for all parties involved? OR - should US actions be made based on a standard of conduct recognized to be beneficial to all mankind? The Liberal bias of the Carter and Obama administrations reflect a personal avoidance of adhering to proven historical international standards of conduct toward another nation as shown in Ms. Blum's book.

The U.S. under Carter and Obama leadership removes the standard of keeping one's word from the Palestinians, but continues to put unfair pressure on Israel to return to Pre-67 War Borders.

Ms. Blum should be commended for having the courage to expose the bias of the Messrs. Carter and Obama so that the U.S. public can see the facts. Appeasement of radical Islam within any nation's government only leads to emboldening the Muslim extremists and revealing the weakened resolve of the Obama administration.

Sometimes in the political chatter there is a piece of work that clarifies a subject. This book is one of those. The Arab Spring and the history of American involvement with the Middle East are closely intertwined. For the life of me, I don't understand why our government doesn't see the reality of the situation. Congress and the President, as well as any truth seeking American should read this book before its too late.

This book boils down the truth of what is happening into an easy to read overview. Well done!

This book is well written & a fantastic history lesson. Too bad that Obama has made some of the ssame mistakes that Carter did giving reason for the book. Buy it & become better informed.

How many more books would the author sell if she published as Ruthie Podhoretz Blum. She shows the sharp, incisive mind of her father, and the impatience with intellectual dishonesty (and relish of intellectual pugilism).

From an Israeli journalist who has watched in disbelief at the horrid disrespect Obama/Clinton/Kerry etc. have heaped upon the tiny mini-country of Israel! Excellent account and analysis. Dr. Gary K
