Citing little-known reports and remarks of Polish, British and French officials, and other evidence, Weber traces President Franklin Roosevelt’s secret campaign to provoke war in Europe prior to the outbreak of hostilities in September 1939. By pressing Britain, France and Poland into war against Germany, the US President bears at least some responsibility for World War II. Weber also discusses the role of Jewish power and influence on US foreign policy during those years. Roosevelt’s record of deceit, lies and lawlessness is routinely suppressed by those who control the US media and American cultural life. Americans who express admiration for Roosevelt and his leadership have little moral right to complain when other presidents follow his example and lead the country into war by breaking the law, subverting the Constitution, and lying to the people.

Michele Bachmann, who calls herself a “constitutional conservative,” is a US congressional representative who recently announced that she’s a presidential candidate. In a recent video presentation, she stresses her “love” for Israel, and says that US support for the Zionist state is “critical” for America. Her views on Israel, American “exceptionalism” and US foreign policy are shared by many Americans, especially those who call themselves conservative, and by most high-ranking US politicians. In this broadcast, Weber takes a close look at these views, and why they grossly distort historical reality, are dangerously misleading, and betray the very principles she claims to uphold.

Judaism is not just another religion. It’s core values are markedly unlike those of Christianity and the other great faiths. A central message of the Hebrew scriptures is that Jews are a divinely “chosen” people — a unique community distinct from the rest of humanity. Some recent news items reconfirm this point, which is important for an understanding of the reality of cultural and political life in the United States, the US relationship with Israel, and the issue of war and peace in the Middle East and in the world.

The great D-Day invasion of June 6, 1944, was a high point of World War II and of the US role in defeating Hitler’s Germany. The anniversary of this greatest amphibious assault in history is a good opportunity to take a sober look at some comfortable falsehoods and myths about the “good war.” The familiar American portrayal of World War II, and the “good war” mythology of the US role in it, is not just bad history. It has helped greatly to support and justify a series of arrogant US foreign policy adventures, with harmful consequences for both America and the world.

On Memorial Day we remember all those who have suffered, sacrificed and died while serving in our country’s armed forces. But time and again, American political leaders, supported by much of the media, have sent young people to their deaths, and have ruined the lives of many more, in foreign wars that were promoted and justified on the basis of deceit and lies. All too often, Americans have been sent to unnecessary military campaigns. A good example is the Iraq war. The US invasion of that country in 2003, and the occupation that followed, has cost more than four thousand American lives and hundreds of billions of dollars, and has brought death to many tens of thousands of Iraqis. Whatever the secondary reasons for the war, the crucial factor in the decision to attack was to help Israel.
