American Betrayal


"This explosive book is a long-needed answer to court histories that continue to obscure key facts about our backstage war with Moscow. Must-reading for serious students of security issues and Cold War deceptions, both foreign and domestic."

-- M. Stanton Evans, author of Stalin's Secret Agents and Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America's Enemies

"[West] only claims `to connect the dots,' which is a very modest description of the huge and brilliant work she has obviously done. ... It is not simply a good book about history. It is one of those books which makes history."

-- Vladimir Bukovsky, author of To Build a Castle and co-founder of the Soviet dissident movement, and Pavel Stroilov, author of Behind the Desert Storm.

"Every once in a while, something happens that turns a whole structure of preconceived ideas upside down, shattering tales and narratives long taken for granted, destroying prejudice, clearing space for new understanding to grow. Diana West's latest book, American Betrayal, is such an event."
-- Henrik Raeder Clausen, Europe News

"No book has ever frightened me as much as American Betrayal. ... It all adds up to a story so disturbing that it has changed my attitude to almost everything I think about how the world actually is."

-- Steven Kates, Quadrant

Her task is ambitious; her sweep of crucial but too-little-known facts of history is impressive; and her arguments are eloquent and witty. ... American Betrayal is one of those books that will change the way many of us see the world.

-- Susan Freis Falknor, Blue Ridge Forum

“What Diana West has done is to dynamite her way through several miles of bedrock. On the other side of the tunnel there is a vista of a new past. Of course folks are baffled. Few people have the capacity to take this in. Her book is among the most well documented I have ever read. It is written in an unusual style viewed from the perspective of the historian—but it probably couldn’t have been done any other way.”

-- Lars Hedegaard, historian, editor, Dispatch International

"Diana West's new book rewrites WWII and Cold War history not by disclosing secrets, but by illuminating facts that have been hidden in plain sight for decades. Furthermore, she integrates intelligence and political history in ways never done before."

-- Jeffrey Norwitz, former professor of counterterrorism, Naval War College

Diana West’s American Betrayal — a remarkable, novel-like work of sorely needed historical re-analysis — is punctuated by the Cassandra-like quality of “multi-temporal” awareness. ... But West, although passionate and direct, is able to convey her profoundly disturbing, multi-temporal narrative with cool brilliance, conjoining meticulous research, innovative assessment, evocative prose, and wit.

-- Andrew G. Bostom, PJ Media

Do not be dissuaded by the controversy that has erupted around this book which, if you insist on complete accuracy, would be characterized as a disinformation campaign.

-- Jed Babbin, The American Spectator

The most important anti-Communist book of our time.

-- J.R. Nyquist, contributor, And Reality Be Damned ... What Media Didn't Tell You about the End of the Cold War and the Fall of Communism in Europe

The polemics against your Betrayal have a familiar smell: The masters of the guild get angry when someone less worthy than they are ventures into the orchard in which only they are privileged to harvest. The harvest the outsider brought in, they ritually burn.

-- Hans Jansen, former professor of Islamic Thought, University of Utrecht 

West's lesson to Americans: Reality can't be redacted, buried, fabrictaed, falsified, or omitted. Her book is eloquent proof of it.

-- Edward Cline, Family Security Matters

In American Betrayal, Ms. West's well-established reputation for lacking "sacred cows" remains intact. The resulting beneficiaries are the readers, especially those who can deal with the truth.

-- Wes Vernon, Renew America

After reading American Betrayal and much of the vituperation generated by neconservative "consensus" historians, I conclude that we cannot ignore what West has demonstrated through evidence and cogent argument.

-- John Dale Dunn, M.D., J.D., Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons

Enlightening. I give American Betrayal five stars only because it is not possible to give it six.

-- John Dietrich, formerly of the Defense Intelligence Agency and author of The Morgenthau Plan: Soviet Influence on American Postwar Policy.

If you're looking for something to read, this is the most dazzling, mind-warping book I have read in a long time. It has been criticized by the folks at Front Page, but they don't quite get what Ms. West has set out to do and accomplished. I have a whole library of books on communism, but -- "Witness" excepted -- this may be the best.

-- Jack Cashill, author of Deconstructing Obama: The Lives, Loves and Letters of America's First Postmodern President and First Strike: TWA Flight 800 and the Attack on America

American Betrayal is a monumental achievement. Brilliant and important.

-- Monica Crowley, Fox News analyst, radio host and author of What the Bleep Just Happened: The Happy Warriors Guide to the Great American Comeback

"If you haven't read Diana West's "American Betrayal" yet, you're missing out on a terrific, real-life thriller."

-- Brad Thor, author of the New York Times bestsellers Hidden Order, Black List and The Last Patriot.

If the Soviet penetration of Washington, D.C., was so wide and so deep that it functioned like an occupation …
If, as a result of that occupation, American statecraft became an extension of Soviet strategy …
If the people who caught on – investigators, politicians, defectors – and tried to warn the American public were demonized, ridiculed and destroyed for the good of that occupation and to further that strategy …
And if the truth was suppressed by an increasingly complicit Uncle Sam …

Would you feel betrayed?

Ilmar Reepalu is the Mayor of Malmo, Sweden, but he could well serve as the Mouthpiece of Eurabia, having crystallized its essence in a recent interview about rocketing Antisemitism in his city. Malmo (pop. 250,000), a confortable train ride across the Oresund strait from Copenhagen, is Sweden's third-largest city, a Leftist-jihadist territory where like-minded Leftist "antifa" Swedes and Muslim immigrants, the 21st-century's alliance of Brown Shirts and Black Shirts, effectively arm "civilized" Socialist rule with the under-flowing threat and as-necessary implementation of violence.

You may recall the March 2009 Davis Cup match between Sweden and Israel that was played in Malmo sans spectators after the City Council voted five to four to hold the match in an empty stadium. As the Jerusalem Post noted at the time, this made "winners" of the "Stop the Match" campaign "which prevailed on the council's Socialist-Left majority to quarantine Israelis and Jews behind an apartheid police cordon to protest israel's action in the recent Gaza war."

Six thousand Palestinian partisans marched on the stadium in a protest that, naturally, turned violent, resulting in 100 arrests.

Malmo, whose population is more than 25 percent Muslim immigrant, is also infamous for recurring violence in Rosengard, a mainly Muslim housing project I have had the opportunity at least to view. I drove by on a rainy and very quiet afternoon with friends from the anti-Islamization party Sweden Democrats, but on riot nights, fire department and ambulances can't go in without police escort. (Here is an excellent report on Malmo by CBN.)

Now, some of Malmo's tiny Jewish population, estimated at no more than 700 people, are leaving this Islamized city, where the 79 crimes against Jews reported to police in 2009 were double the number reported in 2008.

What about it, Mr. Mayor? In Reepalu's January interview, as Tundra Tabloids puts it (and translates), the mayor "blames the collective Jew, Israel, for recent attacks against Jews in Malmö, `due to the conflict in Gaza last year [spilling] over to Malmo.' "

TT continues: "But Reepalu goes further to elucidate his true views on Israel, which basically follows the thinking in the Islamic world, that Jews are not allowed a national movement of their own...."

From the interview: "Have you considered to say in public that Malmo does not accept anti-Semitism. Or is that controversial?

Reepalu: We don't accept Zionism or Antisemitism. They are [both] extremists that want to set themselves over other other groups and believe [other] groups are worth less.

This is indeed the Islamic world view, which, as Bat Ye'or has long and patiently explained to mainly deaf ears, has been adopted by powerful sectors of the European elite who made common cause with Yasir Arafat to delegitimize the very existence of Israel. In a recent speech in Israel (video here, text here), Bat Ye'or discussed the resurgence of Antisemitism in Europe and again placed it in the key framework of "Eurabia":

This new Judeophobia is not aimed at individual Jews, [not] at the populations that since the Shoah have become marginal and insignificant on demographic and political levels.

It is [rather] expressed through an implacable and disdainful hate for the state of Israel, for what [Israel] represents and stands for, and [it is also expressed] by the glorification of Palestinianism, which is an ideology for the elimination of Jews as in former days of Nazis. ... In other words, one does not express institutional racism, one celebrates Palestinianism and its jihadist ideology. ...

Or, as Mayor Reepalu puts it on the flip side, one denounces both Antisemitism and Zionism, as though Jews living in a Jewish state is similarly a manifestation of irrational hatred and therefore deserving of eradication. Of course and as usual, such thinly veiled and ultimately genocidal attitudes are not just a problem for Jews. Bat Ye'or explains:

[Europe's] anti-Israel strategy initiated in the 1970's will not change. It will continue. It is too late to change. It will continue to its conclusion: the destruction of Europe.

For there, finally, is the paradox and the pitfall: this new Judeophobia is, in fact, inseparable from Europe's long-term policy of fusion with the Arab world, which includes the mass immigration from Muslim countries, with demographic, sociological, political and religious changes that come with it.

In other words, make a deal with the devil, end up in hell.

Such changes are not the result of chance, but [rather] a planned and intended strategy, whose unfolding can be followed in the texts of the numerous Euro/Arab conferences.

I have called this transformation of Europe: Eurabia.

Eurabia is not Europe. It is its enemy. It does not represent the majority of Europeans nor all its politicians.

It is the Ilmar Reepalus that represent Eurabia, Europe's enemy -- and our own.
