520    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.
