1. Guilt By Association – How Deception and Self-Deceit Took America To WarBy Jeff Gates

“Explosively Revelatory” Says former U.S. envoy to Iraq


…because control of the Oval Office is the syndicates goal, the immediate purpose of Guilt is to alert the public to the perils of John McCain emerging as president and commander-in-chief. McCain s election would embolden those skilled at displacing facts with deceit, Gates documents with convincing detail. The brilliantly provocative Guilt by Association consists of nine chapters: Game Theory and the Mass Murder of 9/11 ; Organized Crime in Arizona ; John McCain and Financial Frauds ; McCain Family Secret: The Cover-Up ; The Presidency and Russian Organized Crime ; Money, Democracy and the Great Divide ; The New Anti-Semitism ; Would Obama Be Better? ; and The Way Forward. In the first chapter Gates illustrates the intergenerational sophistication with which neoconservatives prepared the minds of the American public to invade Iraq in response to 9/11. Academics and think tanks pushed Samuel Huntington s 1996 Clash of Civilizations to promote a clash consensus five years before 9/11. That same year Richard Perle along with other neocons such as Douglas Feith wrote A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm for incoming Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. This helped lay more mental threads for removing Saddam Hussain. Then Senators McCain, Joe Lieberman, a Jewish Zionist from Connecticut, and Jon Kyl, a Christian Zionist from Arizona, co-sponsored the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998. Distracted by the Monica Lewinsky affair, President Bill Clinton signed it. –Andrew I. Killgore, co-founder of WRMEA and former U.S. Ambassador to Qatar.

MyCatbirdSeat.com on War Crimes in Gaza and the Zionist Fifth Column in America:

This book not only provides a detailed account and illustration of Israeli war crimes in Gaza but equally important it provides a comprehensive analysis of the reasons why more and more people are recognizing that the US Congress and White House are zionized occupied territory.

“James Petras, teacher and humanist of a rare, encyclopedic, analytical intelligence, author of this compact masterwork, has  long been recognized  as  the foremost social scientist of the United States…” Frederic Clairmont See full review

On December 8 2010 The Club of Mexican Journalists awarded James Petras  its prestigious International Journalism Prize for Investigation and Analysis of the News within the global context.

“Dr. James Petras is one of the greatest personalities of critical intellect of our time. His numerous books, which have been translated into many languages, and his opinion articles which are invariably defined by their rigor and decisive data, widely documented and placed within their social context, have turned this thinker into one of the most lucid and coherent minds of recent times. Naturally, this has earned Dr. Petras the resentment of those who feel affected by his tireless efforts. Nevertheless, countless readers all over the world seek the words of this thinker to defend themselves from propaganda that intends to make us sympathize with the single-minded thinking of neoliberalism.”

6. Zionism, Militarism and the Decline of US PowerBy James Petras


7. Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews is a journey through the propaganda lies and truth of history. (3 Volumes)By Alan Hart

Almost everything you’ve been conditioned to believe about the making and sustaining of conflict in and over Palestine that became Israel is not true.

It’s not true that all the Palestinians who became refugees in 1948 left their homeland voluntarily. Most were driven out by Zionist terrorism and ethnic cleansing.

It’s not true that Israel has lived in constant danger of annihilation, the “driving into the sea” of its Jews. Israel’s existence has never, ever, been in danger.

And it’s not true that Israel never had Arab partners for peace. It’s Zionism that has never been interested in peace on terms the vast majority of Palestinians and most other Arabs and Muslims everywhere could accept.

Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews is a journey through the propaganda lies and truth of history.

When the citizens of nations know the difference between Zionism’s propaganda lies and the documented facts and truth of history, they will be empowered, if they care, to demand that their governments act to end Israel’s oppression of the Palestinians. And that’s why Alan Hart devoted more than five years of his life to researching and writing this book – to empower citizens to play their necessary part in stopping the countdown to catastrophe for all.

Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews is a complete re-writing of the history of the making and sustaining of the conflict, replacing Zionist mythology with events as they actually happened. The events are given global context to enable all readers to see how all the pieces of the most complex and complicated jig-saw puzzle fit together.

The insight Alan brings to the pages of this book is assisted by revelations from private conversations he had over the years with leaders on both sides of the conflict, including the two greatest opposites in all of human history – Golda Meir, Mother Israel, and Yasser Arafat, Father Palestine.

Written in his down-to-earth, television reporting and conversational style, the book reads more like a novel than a conventional history. It will keep you turning the pages wanting to know more.

It has two central themes.

One is why Western support of Israel right-or-wrong has made the whole Arab and wider Muslim world an explosion of anger and humiliation waiting for its time to happen.

The other is how Israel, the child of Zionism, became its own worst enemy and a threat not only to the peace of the region and the world, but also to the best interests of Jews everywhere and the moral integrity of Judaism itself.

The key to understanding, the author writes, is knowledge of the difference between Judaism and Zionism. He explains: “Judaism is the religion of Jews, not ‘the’ Jews because not all Jews are religious. Like Christianity and Islam, Judaism has at its core a set of moral values and ethical principles. Zionism is Jewish nationalism in the form of a sectarian, colonial enterprise which, in the process of creating and then expanding in the Arab heartland a state for some Jews, made a mockery of Judaism’s moral values and ethical principles and demonstrated contempt for international law and the human and political rights of the Palestinians. That’s why, for example, Nazi holocaust survivor Dr. Hajo Meyer titled his latest book An Ethical Tradition Betrayed, The End of Judaism.”

The author adds: “Supporters of Israel right or wrong conflate Judaism and Zionism because the assertion that they are one and the same enables them to claim that criticism of the Zionist state of Israel is a manifestation of anti-Semitism. Often, almost always these days, the accusation that criticism of Israel is anti-Semitism is false. And this false charge is the blackmail card played to silence criticism of, and suppress informed and honest debate about, the Zionist state and its policies. The reality is that Judaism and political Zionism are total opposites, and knowledge of the difference is the key to understanding two things. One is why it is perfectly possible to be passionately anti-Zionist – opposed to Zionism’s colonial enterprise – without being in any way, shape or form anti-Semitic (anti-Jew). The other is why it is wrong to blame all Jews everywhere for the crimes of the hard core Zionist few in Palestine that became Israel.”

Author’s Appeal…

“The Zionist lobby in all of its manifestations is putting shocking and awesome effort into limiting distribution of this book and suppressing the informed and honest debate it was written to promote. The less this attempt to keep the truth of history hidden is successful, the more likely it will be that peace can have a last chance.”

Consider not only buying this book for yourself but as a gift for others, to assist the mobilisation of people power (democracy in action) for justice and peace.

9. Spy Trade: How Israel’s Lobby Undermines America’s EconomyBy Grant F. Smith


Spy Trade: How Israel’s Lobby Undermines America’s Economy

Israel and its American lobby have committed audacious but generally unknown crimes against the United States. Government secrecy across the CIA, FBI, Department of Justice and Pentagon long kept files about Israeli espionage, weapons smuggling and covert operations on American soil classified…until now   Spy Trade is much more than a groundbreaking dissection of the tactics Israel and its American lobby repeatedly use to evade justice. The book also provides stunningly simple strategies for ending criminal immunity and subversion of law enforcement that may someday restore American governance.

13.  Decade of Deceit

By William A Cook

William A. Cook’s ‘Decade of Deceit’ is a collection of spectacular articles written by a man who has gradually awakened to the disastrous meaning of the Zionification of our universe.

14. Rape of Palestine

By William A Cook

The Rape of Palestine” offers an American’s perspective on the last four years of the systematic genocide taking place in Palestine. William Cook provides an in depth analysis on the inhumane actions and policies of the Sharon and Olmert administrations as they defy the resolutions of the United Nations, the Geneva Accords, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Court of Justice. He analyzes the total lack of moral behavior that results from the Zionist imposition of their secular ideology that operates in consort with the Neo-Con operatives in the Bush Administration with the full support of AIPAC. The book is a composite of articles published over the last four years that complements his earlier volume “Tracking Deception: Bush Mid-East Policy” published in 2006. Together they represent a damning indictment of leaders in both countries that are psychopathic in nature, virtually immune to conscience or empathy for fellow human beings.


15. Radio Free Palestine

By Stuart Littlewood

Stuart Littlewood is writer-photographer in the UK. His articles are published widely on the web. He is author of the book Radio Free Palestine, which tells the plight of the Palestinians under occupation.

“Radio Free Palestine is a cry form the heart, written in moral anger by a person who bothered to leave his comfortable surroundings far from the suffering of another people, the Palestinians, and share, witness, expose and protest in the strongest voice he could find at what he saw and heard, what so few others have even cared to see or hear.” – from the Foreword by 2006 Nobel Peace Prize nominee Jeff Halper, Co-ordinator of ICAHD (Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions)

Visits to the Holy Land inspired Stuart Littlewood and PhillipVine to write and produce this book. It explains how the Palestinians, Muslim and Christian, have been cruelly abused and dispossessed in order to fulfill the Zionist grand scheme to occupy the entire territory permanently. Radio Free Palestine pulls no punches and is an indictment on the international community’s cowardly betrayal and dereliction of duty.

The book is out of print but its message is more relevant than ever. Stuart Littlewood, who shot the pictures and wrote the text, and Phillip Vine, who penned the beautiful poems, have now posted it on the web for anyone and everyone to read. It can be found at http://www.radiofreepalestine.org.uk/,

We wish our brave friends in Palestine good fortune in their continuing quest for liberty and peace.

16. Solving 9-11: The Deception That Changed the World

By Christopher Bollyn

Christopher Bollyn is to be complimented for pursuing an idea that many people have long suspected but have wished to avoid.

Two hours before the first plane struck the World Trade Center, the Mossad-owned Odigo messaging system advised its members “to the precise minute” the time of the attack.

These events in particular caused Christopher Bollyn, an independent journalist, to suspect that Israel was a key player behind 9/11.

In his book Bollyn proposes that “9-11 was an elaborate false-flag deception carried out by Israeli military intelligence and Zionist agents” in the United States. He states that “Israeli nationals or dedicated Zionists [can be found] at every key point of the 9-11 matrix.”

The author begins with a short review of Israel’s successful false flag operations. He then traces the germ of the 9/11 project to Mossad head Isser Harel, who informed an American visitor in 1979 that “your tallest building will be the…symbol they [the terrorists] will hit.”

18. Manufactured Crisis

By Gareth Porter
