You may not agree with everything you read in Fleming's book, but the term "Israel firster," as it applies to certain members of Congress, is obviously becoming more and more applicable with each passing year and with each new $3 billion handout (the current annual level of US aid to Israel) from the US Treasury. Why, when the country is $15 trillion in debt--and when Americans are facing cuts in Medicare, Social Security, public education, and other vital programs--do these handouts continue? The fact that they do is something every American should be angry about.
Fleming ended up garnering 7,837 votes in the general election, held November 6, 2012, and as she comments, she was "surprised and heart warmed" at the response. However, she also remarks, "What I learned on the campaign trail is that I will never be a politician, but I will continue to write with hope to provoke change for the better in the political realm." And that is what she does in this book.
The scope of this book is beyond its title, as Eileen Fleming has, as in her other works, connected dots that if left unrecognized, may imperil all of us in ways most can't even imagine. Mordechai Vanunu realized this twenty six years ago when he exposed Israel's illegal and yet undeclared nuclear weapons program that may yet destroy our world.
