Alison Weir Berkeley lecture: 100 Years of Pro-Israel Activism & Trump’s “Muslim Ban”

If Americans Knew – Published on February 28, 2017

Lecture at the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists on February 16, 2017: “100 Years of Pro-Israel Activism & Trump’s ‘Muslim Ban’: How a Special Interest Lobby Enabled the Colonization of Palestine and Influences Policies Today”

The creation of Israel in 1948 was the result of a worldwide movement called Political Zionism, active in the United States since the late 1800s. After Israel was created, this movement – which then became known as the “Israel lobby” – continued to work on behalf of Israel. Today it is one of most powerful and pervasive special interests in the U.S. Among its many achievements has been to re-define the term anti-Semitism to increasingly mean criticism of Israel and/or support for Palestinian human rights. Another accomplishment has been to procure massive aid to Israel: on average, 7000 times more per capita than to others around the world.

Drawing on her best-selling book, Against Our Better Judgment: The Hidden History of How the US Was Used to Create Israel, former journalist Alison Weir discusses this movement, its history and current reality, media coverage of Israel-Palestine, and the role of Israel partisans in promoting the Iraq War and in the continued demonization of Iran.

  1. Alison Weir and UU are logical candidates for alliance with efforts to expose who really did 9-11 EXCEPT if both Weir and UU are limited hangouts (controlled opposition).

    Richard Gage appeared with Kevin Barrett and Christpher Bollyn at the Nation of Islam conference.

    What prevents alliances developing with Weir and UU?
