Yesterday on KZYX radio Jeffrey Blankfort discussed his groundbreaking analysis of a Pew Research poll of Council on Foreign Relations members, which finds them less supportive of current US-Israel relations than the general public. Blankfort later interviews Grant Smith about how in the 1960s the US government fought the Israeli drive for nuclear weapons while attempting to register Israel’s US lobby as a foreign agent. Fast forward 46 years and Americans are now being asked to defend Israeli nuclear hegemony against regional rival Iran. Smith discusses other newly declassified documents from his new book, Spy Trade: How Israel’s Lobby Undermines America’s Economy revealing AIPAC and Israel’s joint efforts against American industry groups to win preferential market access.
