First-ever National Summit to Reassess the US – Israel “Special Relationship”

Dear Friend of CNI:

The Council for the National Interest has joined with three other groups to host a first-ever National Summit to Reassess the U.S.-Israel “Special Relationship.”

The aim of this unprecedented conference is to blow the lid off the cover-up surrounding the Israel Lobby and the concept that the US “must” support Israeli policies for reasons of American national security.

This conference is scheduled to take place at the National Press Club in Washington, DC on March 7, 2014.

US financial, military, and diplomatic support for Israel has grown significantly and steadily throughout the past sixty years and now dwarfs annual American foreign assistance to any other nation. Research indicates the U.S.-Israel “special relationship” is a major factor in foreign hostility towards Americans. Some experts suggest that Israel has been central to U.S. wars in the Middle East.

However, the huge public backlash against Israel lobby-generated momentum for U.S. attacks on Syria and Iran indicates that Americans are concerned about the direction of U.S. foreign policy, how it is made, and those trying to make it. Despite such concerns, Congress has not examined the impact of Israel lobbying influence on overall U.S. national security and international standing since the 1960s. The time has come for an expert review of these policies with broad American citizen participation.

This historic summit will provide an in-depth, multifaceted inquiry into this critical subject matter. Panelists will include former military and diplomatic personnel, intelligence officers, scholars, economists, researchers and a variety of other subject-matter experts and authors often shut out of key discussions in public forums and news media outlets. Confirmed speakers include Ambassador David Newton; former Congressman Paul Findley; Former CIA Officers Paul Pillar, Michael Scheuer, and Ray McGovern; Author Stephen Sniegoski; USS Liberty survivor Ernie Gallo; as well a co-sponsors Alison Weir of CNI and If Americans Knew, Grant Smith of IRMEP, and yours truly. Members of the public will be able to ask the key questions and network with other attendees.

I encourage you to donate to support this conference (indicate Summit with your donation). Your contributions are critical for its success! Also, please register and purchase your partially-tax deductible discounted early-bird ticket today.

As always, thank you for your commitment and your support.

Welcome to the first national summit to reassess the U.S.—Israel “special relationship!”

US financial, military, and diplomatic support for Israel has grown significantly and steadily throughout the past 60 years and now dwarfs annual American foreign assistance to all other nations. Research indicates the U.S.-Israel “special relationship” is a major factor in foreign hostility towards Americans. Some experts suggest that Israel has been central to U.S. wars in the Middle East.

However, the huge public backlash against Israel lobby-generated momentum for U.S. attacks on Syria and Iran indicates that Americans are concerned about the direction of U.S. foreign policy, how it is made, and those trying to make it. Despite such concerns, Congress has not examined the impact of Israel lobbying influence on overall U.S. national security and international standing since the 1960s. The time has therefore come for an expert inquiry with broad American citizen participation.

This historic summit will provide an in-depth, multifaceted inquiry into this critical subject matter. Panelists will include former military and diplomatic personnel, intelligence officers, scholars, economists, researchers and a variety of other subject-matter experts and authors often shut out of key discussions in public forums and news media outlets. Members of the public will be allowed to ask the key questions and network with other attendees.

This nonpartisan symposium will examine the impact of the U.S.-Israel relationship on Americans. Speakers and attendees will include military, diplomatic, intelligence, academic, governmental, research organization and economic experts, as well as former and current members of Congress.
