I started by Googling words like Belfour Declaration, the Irgun, the Nakba, the Stern Gang, King David Hotel, Plan Dalet, “mowing the lawn” and USS Liberty, to mention just a few. A new narrative started to emerge. It was a narrative that was very discomforting and at odds with what I had so firmly believed.
Along the way I came across this book, which succinctly summarized and documented all I had discovered by Googling individual terms.
If you have a hard time believing what is written in this book do your own research.
The Zionist goal is to seize as much Palestinian land as possible even if it required the extermination of the Palestinians people on that land—Plan Dalet. It appears that Israel was born of death and destruction by Zionist terrorist groups—an inconvenient and discomforting truth.
Albert Einstein was so incensed by this travesty, he wrote a letter to the NYT in which he presciently warned us against the Zionist fascists. ( You can read it online.) This is a " must read" book for those interested in understanding why we give Israel over 3 billion dollars a year in military aid..
The internet has shed the scales from my eyes. Weir's book chronicles the absolute deception that has plagued American thinking. Thank you, Allison
Several years after posting my review, I found that my modest posting has attracted , by far, the most comments. That was what I expected. I suppose you might say, I engineered it. I used the word "Hasbara" in the title and as I suspected the key word drew an army of, well....Hasbara. The Hasbara community is well stepped in the art of duplicity as evidenced by the comments posted in response. The internet will be your undoing as it is not subject to the coercion and manipulation you wield upon the once powerful MSM
We've been fed a huge lie about Zionism, which has nothing to do with Judaism and nothing to do with Christianity, and it's time to wake up from that lie. This book is a good start.
