First read Robert Fisk's United States of Israel?
Then Read Molly Ivin's Let's call the Israel lobby the Israel lobby
Israel receives the most US aid. Why can't we talk about Israel without being labeled "anti-semites" and why is it a crime to discuss the politics of Israel and their influence on American government? The Israeli's discuss it all the time- sometimes heatedly. I've discussed it with bonafide Israeli's. They didn't call me an anti-semite. What gives? The more someone tells me to shut up about something, the more suspicious I get.
And what is it with the Christian right and Israel?
