The passionate attachment : America's involvement with Israel, 1947 to the present by George W Ball( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 990 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his Farewell Address, George Washington admonished his fellow citizens to steer clear of a "passionate attachment" to another nation, as such could create "the illusion of a common interest ... where no common interest exists." This warning echoes through the pages of this unflinching examination of our four-decade entanglement in the web of Middle East politics. The distinguished authors here trace the sequence of events that brought the United States into a relationship unique in its history, with its foreign policy often manipulated by another, much smaller nation. The costs have been financial: American aid to Israel well exceeds the total of U.S. payments to reconstruct postwar Europe. The costs have been political and moral: denouncing arms sales as destabilizing to the Middle East, the United States has poured weapons into Israel; while championing national self-determination, the United States has failed to do anything effective to halt Israel's colonization of the West Bank. Israeli forbearance from entering the Gulf War in 1991 and thereby undoing the coalition of Arab States put together by the Bush administration further intensified our passionate attachment. To achieve a durable settlement in an area beset by age-old disputes, the authors call for an end to our unquestioned acquiescence in Israeli action and a broadened role for collective security

George W. Ball served in the State Department under Presidents Kennedy and Johnson, and later as Ambassador to the United Nations. He describes the early Johnson Administration as a period of "drift" when the US was becoming increasingly involved in Vietnam, a trend Ball opposed in numerous memos and meetings.

In this sweeping biography, Francois Duchene explores Monnet's complex personality, from his birth in Cognac through his eventful political and personal lives. First a merchant in the countryside of France, from 1919 to 1923 Monnet was Deputy General of the League of Nations. During the Second World War, he was a member of the Washington-based British Supply Council; in 1947, he drafted the Monnet Plan, calling for the modernization of French industry and agriculture. This led to France's participation in the Marshall Plan, and later, in Monnet's drafting of the Schuman Plan, establishing the European Coal and Steel Community, of which Monnet was the first president. In the 1950s, Monnet organized the Action Committee for a United States of Europe, which supported development of the European Common Market. He remained active in the movement towards unification throughout his long life
