I first began writing and speaking publicly — roughly some
25 years ago while still in my early 20s — I have repeatedly
been asked (both here in the United States and around the world)
how I came to my particular point of view, particularly in regard
to the U.S. “special relationship” with Israel. It
seems appropriate to use this forum to answer that question for
those who are interested.
always been interested in politics since I was about seven or
eight years old, I actually started out being interested in the
history of the Civil War. From there it developed into a growing
interest in U.S. political affairs in general. Like many folks
I believed in the myth that politics was “Democrat vs. Republican”
and later I bought into the theory that there was a real difference
between “liberals” and “conservatives.”
however, I came to see that the real difference was between the
nationalists and the internationalists, and, in the end, it became
clear to me that the primary — virtually unchallenged —
power force in American affairs was the role of the Jewish lobby
and the global Zionist agenda. How I came to that realization
was a learning process in itself — and a very personal one
see, as a child — during the Vietnam War — I was very
much against the war because I was just instinctively anti-war.
And then I eventually saw the effect that the war had on my older
brother, who was drafted and sent to Vietnam. He is dead today.
He survived the Vietnam War, but he never completely recovered
from the physical and psychological impact of the war. This book
— The Golem — is dedicated in part to my
brother. Sadly, he was just one of many victims of war.
yet, ironically — if I must tell the entire truth, and I
will — my brother was a firm supporter of the policies of
George W. Bush. Like many good patriotic Americans, my brother
— a traditional conservative — was taken in by the
Zionist propaganda of Fox News and other “conservative”
outlets rampant today.
some respects, my brother would probably reject the basic foundation
of this book, if only because its thesis runs so contrary to the
propaganda line that he came to accept during his too-short life.
any case, being very, very anti-war, I began studying U.S. foreign
policy. By the time I was about 16 years old, I had pretty much
come to the conclusion that the primary powder keg — the
foremost problem — for U.S. foreign policy was the Middle
East. And that was precisely — I determined — because
of all-out U.S. support for Israel.
a consequence of that, I believe that we were victim of the 9-11
terrorist attacks. Whoever was responsible for 9-11— and
I do believe that Israel was the prime mover behind 9-11, a subject
that I am going to explore in a forthcoming book — the bottom
line is that the 9-11 tragedy was a direct outgrowth of the U.S.
involvement in the Middle East, specifically, U.S. favoritism
for Israel. Even if — as George Bush contends — radical
Muslims were responsible for 9-11 — it still links back
to U.S. partisanship on behalf of Israel.
and years ago I told anyone who would listen that — ultimately
— the United States would be the victim of a terrorist attack
from the Muslim world as a consequence of our Middle East policy,
and while the United States was the victim of a massive terrorist
attack, I do not believe — as I’ve said — that
the Muslims were responsible.
in a certain sense I have been vindicated, at least if George
W. Bush’s lies are to be believed. And many good Americans
believe those lies. But they seem incapable of making a connection
between that so-called “Muslim terrorist attack” and
the corrupt policies of the American government in the conduct
of our nation’s foreign policy.
of course, we have found ourselves embroiled in this war in Iraq.
And if the Zionists and their controlled politicians like George
W. Bush have their way, we will get into a war against Iran.
needless to say, as I have always said: The one thing which is
consistent about U.S. Middle East policy is the fact that it is
based on lies, bullying and double standards. This policy must
