Usa, (PressExposure) October 23, 2008 -- The Israel lobby has been the major influence in the drive toward war in Iraq and Afghanistan, claims a former congressional staffer in a new book that is sure to impact the current presidential election.
In Guilt by Association: How Deception and Self-Deceit Took America to War, former counsel to the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance Jeff Gates chronicles a long tradition of corruption and treason at the hands of foreign agents bent on furthering the Zionist cause.
"America's credibility on the world stage has deteriorated due to a small group of elites and extremists who pledge allegiance to Israel," says Mr. Gates. "And our entangled alliance with Israel--with its known history of stealth and deceit--has led us to war."
In Guilt by Association, Mr. Gates accuses Israeli agents and their "assets" in the U.S.--and in the U.S. government--of pushing for war with Iraq and now Iran, and of operating a transnational criminal syndicate with roots in Russia and other countries.
The depth of corruption and treason Mr. Gates chronicles inside the government is a result of years of neglect by our own so-called watchdogs. Expanding on the ideas in such books as The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy by John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt, Mr. Gates notes, "This book reveals how complicit parties displace facts with beliefs to wield political clout from the shadows."
Guilt by Association, endorsed by Ambassador Edward L. Peck, Congressman Paul Findley and M.I.T. professor Noam Chomsky, exposes the many realms in which this transnational organized crime syndicate operates today, including: â¢ Politics â¢ Media â¢ Academia â¢ Think tanks â¢ Popular culture
Mr. Gates documents how even the 2008 presidential campaign has been influenced by the Zionist state, fueled by massive campaign finance corruption.
A widely acclaimed author, lawyer, investment banker, political advisor and consultant to government, corporate and union leaders worldwide, Jeff Gates is also former counsel to the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance. His previous works include Democracy at Risk: Rescuing Main Street From Wall Street and The Ownership Solution: Toward a Shared Capitalism for the 21st Century. Endorsers for these earlier books include CEOs, heads of state, legislators, commentators and Nobel laureates in peace and economics.
