The Israel lobby exerts incredible power and influence over America. Some identify only one organization, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), as ´´the lobby” citing its influence on Capitol Hill. This is wrong. Many interconnected organizations channel their power and influence through AIPAC in Congress. Hundreds more ´´mini-AIPAC´´s coordinate with AIPAC and their own national office to lobby state legislatures to pass model legislation and spending authorizations benefiting Israel - without publicly disclosing most of their lobbying activities. Others operate quietly, policing what is allowed to appear in mainstream news media and channeling ´´hush money” to civil rights organizations to keep them out of grassroots pro-Palestinian movements. Coordinated, effective, and highly averse to public scrutiny, the Israel Affinity Organizations that make up the lobby have transformed America. While some informed voters know the US provides more foreign aid to Israel than any other country, the total flow of charitable, tax dollar, military aid, intelligence, and ´´opportunity cost” are unknown to those footing the bill - and the lobby is determined to keep it that way. Yet storm clouds are gathering over Israel’s lobby. Public opinion polls asking the right questions indicate Americans are nowhere near as approving of unconditional support as many Israel lobbyists insist. Most American Jews have nothing to do with Israel lobbying organizations. More important, broad and deep societal changes, along with the technology-driven rise of alternative and social media, are transforming large numbers of Americans from mostly unaware supporters into informed and active dissenters. Big Israel is a comprehensive, historical, data-driven analysis of how the Israel lobby exerts influence across the United States. Based on a detailed review of more than 4,000 nonprofit organi 1.

Keine Kultur der Welt hat die Menschheit so stark beeinflusst wie das antike Israel. Hier entstand die heilige Schrift: das meistgelesene Buch der Menschheit. Das Land ´´am Nabel der Welt´´: Die Kulturjournalistin Corinna Hesse spürt den Wurzeln einer geheimnisvollen Kultur am Schnittpunkt zwischen Orient und Okzident nach und beleuchtet deren wechselvolle Geschichte. Babyloner und Perser, Griechen und Römer, christliche Kreuzfahrer und Osmanen regierten das Land für mehr als 2000 Jahre und drückten ihm ihre kulturellen ´´Stempel´´ auf, doch die ideelle Kraft der frühen Mythen blieb ungebrochen. Der Blick in die Kulturgeschichte zeigt, dass die Völker dieser Region auf gemeinsame Wurzeln zurückgehen. In diesen Wurzeln liegt die Hoffnung, dass das seit Jahrtausenden kriegsgebeutelte Land eines Tages seinen Frieden finden wird. Die Länder-Reihe des Silberfuchs-Verlages wurde für den Deutschen Hörbuchpreis 2007 in der Kategorie ´´beste verlegerische Leistung´´ nominiert. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Rolf Becker.
