CNI works for U.S. Middle East policies that represent the highest values of our founders and our citizens and that work to sustain a nation of honor, decency, security, and prosperity.
Many of the most serious dangers facing Americans today stem from our highly unusual relationship with Israel.
Our uniquely massive support for Israel has cost trillions of dollars and multitudes of lives. It has diminished our moral standing in the world, lessened our domestic freedoms, and exposed us to unnecessary and growing peril.
The majority of Americans – as well as our diplomatic and military experts – oppose this unique relationship.
Yet, special interest lobbies continue to foment policies that are disastrous for our nation and tragic for the region.
If we are to have sensible, effective policies that promote safety rather than danger, then it is essential that all Americans become active and informed. Lives depend on it.
The public is invited to the National Summit to Reassess the US-Israel "Special Relationship" to be held in Washington DC in April 2013. This will be a nonpartisan symposium examining the impact of the US-Israel relationship on Americans. Panels will include top military, diplomatic, intelligence, academic, governmental, and economic experts, as well as former Congressional representatives. Details to be announced.
"...a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils.
Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into aparticipation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification.
...and it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluded citizens (who devote themselves to the favorite nation) facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country,
...such attachments are particularly alarming to the truly enlightened and independent patriot. How many opportunities do they afford to tamper with domestic factions, to practice the arts of seduction, to mislead public opinion, to influence or awe the public councils...
Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence... the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake..."
