On December 8 2010 The Club of Mexican Journalists
awarded James Petras  its prestigious
JOURNALISM PRIZE for outstanding “Research and
Analysis of World News”.

"Dr. James Petras is one of the greatest personalities of critical intellect of our time. His
numerous books, which have been translated into many languages, and his opinion articles
which are invariably defined by their rigor and decisive data, widely documented and placed
within their social context, have turned this thinker into one of the most lucid and coherent minds
of recent times. Naturally, this has earned Dr. Petras the resentment of those who feel affected
by his tireless efforts. Nevertheless, countless readers all over the world seek the words of this
thinker to defend themselves from propaganda that intends to make us sympathize with the
single-minded thinking of neoliberalism."

The texts and illustrations in this book provide graphic accounts and visual
evidence of why Israel has provoked a worldwide 'Boycott, Divestment and
Sanctions' campaign by human rights activists, trade unions and a multitude
of other groups, including individuals in Israel and Jewish organizations in
Europe and North America. It includes the Executive Summary of the
Goldstone Report, an in depth case study of Israel's war crimes in Gaza. The
US governments' sustained complicity with Israeli war crimes in the face of
worldwide reprobation, and the conduct of the Obama White House and
nearly 90% of the US Congress in denouncing the Goldstone Report are
addressed in the chapters discussing the political, economic and cultural
power of the Presidents of the Major American Jewish organizations,
including but not confined to AIPAC.

This book exposes the roots of the crisis in the unsustainability of the United
States' military-driven empire building based on a volatile speculative
economy, and influenced by Zionist policy makers committed to the colonialist
state of Israel. It offers a critical study of the collapse of the empire and a
profound indictment of the respectable and prestigious personalities either
responsible for the debacle, or for its continuance. Petras provides clear
insight into how the ramifications of the world depression and regional wars
that originated in Washington and on Wall Street are extending throughout
the world, provoking popular challenges especially in Latin America, while
reinforcing the belligerency and increasingly fascistic nature of the state of
Israel. He demonstrates how unending wars and a deepening capitalist
depression have demolished the ideology of free market neo-liberalism and
forced to the forefront the need for structural changes.

Only Zion-Con demands and Israeli interests can explain the current US
moves against Iran---threats, infiltrations, naval blockades, US
Treasury-imposed sanctions on the entire Iranian financial sector including
threats to global finance for any linkages---policies which are contrary to the
interests of Big Oil, US corporations, and the weakened US military. Petras
empirically demonstrates that while the interests of the US do not in fact
coincide with those of Israel, the effective power of the pro-Zionist Lobby
gives Israel the capacity to replace the US agenda with its own. At a time
when our national economy is in deep crisis, the Israel Lobby is pushing for a
new military confrontation and war with Iran, oblivious to its catastrophic
consequences for the American people. Major pro-Israel officials and
politicians in Homeland Security, the National Security Council, the Congress
and the White House are passing more police-state legislation to control and
silence the growing majority opposition to the expansion of wars in the Middle
East promoted by the Israel Lobby.
RULERS AND RULED IN THE US EMPIRE: Bankers, Zionists, Militants

ISBN: 0-932863-54-X / 264 pp / $16.95 / 2007

This book provides a comprehensive guide to the systemic dimensions of the
US empire. Petras elaborates the changes within the US ruling class, as its
manufacturing sector declines and gives way to the ascendancy of finance
capital, illustrated by its dominance of both the US economy, and the
parameters for political debate on the US role in the world economy
(globalization, trade liberalization). Petras addresses the fallacy of
discussions on the imminent collapse of capitalism when what is occurring in
reality is the collapse of workers’ rights. He elaborates the contradictions in
current immigration/trade liberalization policies, and how these work toward
forcing the displacement of peoples, and furthering the underdevelopment of
third world countries. He reveals the dark heart of modern empire, in the
emergence and proliferation of holocaust-scale carnage.and further outlines
how the world capitalist system is laced together in an intricate hierarchy
where the US pulls most of the strings, even outside its ostensible area of
dominance. The role of corruption in securing world markets is addressed, as
are the reasons for the spectacular global growth in new billionaires.

This book is a chapter-by-chapter analysis and documentation of the power
of Israel via the Israeli, Jewish or Pro-Zionist Lobby on US Middle East policy.
It raises serious questions as to the primary beneficiary of US policy, and its
destructive results for the United States. The extraordinary extent of US
political, economic, military and diplomatic support for the state of Israel is
explored, along with the means whereby such support is generated and
consolidated. Contending that Zionist power in America ensured
unconditional US backing for Israeli colonization of Palestine and its massive
uprooting of Palestinians, it views the interests of Israel rather than those of
Big Oil as the primary cause of the disastrous US wars against Iraq and
threats of war against Iran and Syria. It demonstrates and condemns US
imitation of Israeli practice as it relates to conduct of the war on terrorism and
torture. It sheds light on the AIPAC spying scandal and other Israeli
espionage against America; the fraudulent and complicit role of America’s
academic “terrorist experts” in furthering criminal government policies, and
the orchestration of the Danish cartoons to foment antipathy between
Muslims and the West.

It questions the inability in America to sustain or even formulate a discourse
related to the subject of Israeli influence on the United States.
