The Dangerous Liaison: The Inside Story of the US-Israeli Covert Relationship,“supposedly a history of the secret ties between Israel and the United States, is largely dedicated to Israel-bashing for its own sake,” wrote The New York Times. “Its first message is that, win or lose, smart or dumb, right or wrong, suave or boorish, Israelis are a menace. The second is that the Israeli-American connection is somewhere behind just about everything that ails us.”
The co-author of Dangerous Liaison is the Democratic nominee for Virginia’s 5th Congressional District, Leslie Cockburn. While her book leaves little doubt about this candidate’s anti-Semitic proclivities, what’s more alarming is that Cockburn’s views represent an anti-Israel trend pervading the Democratic Party.
