  • I have often wondered how from being supported by almost the entire world except for the Arab Muslim world and the Soviet bloc including the non Stalinist left, which saw the justice of Israel s cause and why Israel needs to survive , Israel has become across the world a victim of such bottomless and unrelenting hate across the world including by powerful interest groups, the United Nations, the world mainstream media, the EU, third world regimes, churches, and almost the entire left Today Pales [...]


  • Finally, someone is addressing how Israel went from being heavily supported by many to the recipient of unparalleled hatred The history behind the propaganda that turned the world against Israel is in depth and enlightening A must read.



  • The best thing I ve read in a long time about the Arab Israeli conflict At the time of the Six Day War 1967 , Israel had enormous support and sympathy from academics, European nations, labor, Socialists, civil rights leaders, churches, Leftists, peace advocates, journalists Today, that support has not only fallen away, but been replaced by vitriolic hostility and demonization of Israel, even as its very existence is threatened by surrounding enemies almost daily How did this happen That s what t [...]


  • Appreciated the perspective and insight into how it has come to be that Israel is so often seen as the aggressor in mainstream media today Took me a little while to get through, as it s reading that requires frequent thought and mental acuity, but well worth the read I would recommend to anyone that has an interest in a greater understanding of world politics in what is ostensibly the center of civilization.


  • An excellent book on how Israel has gone from the underdog that was cheered by the left and the West to being a vilified, maligned country that has been characterized as a greater threat to world peace than Iran or North Korea Joshua Muravchik details how the Arab and Muslim world used oil and their defacto numerical superiority in the UN to slander and malign Israel over the past 50 years since the Six Day War In addition he details how the left in Europe and the US as well as in the broader ac [...]


  • This is a fascinating book about how the public perception of Israel and conflict in the Middle East has changed over time, and, to a lesser extent, how that perception has formed how events have changed It should come as no great surprise to the casual observer what has happened, Israel went from being recognized by the United Nations to being condemned as inherently racist by the same organization, for the same reason, in less than 30 years, for example Yet it is far than a single problem Mur [...]


  • A must read for anyone interested in Israel and events in the Middle East How this small nation continues to stand against all odds and incredible double standards can only be explained through a biblical lens, in my view That is not, however, the point of the book rather it simply recounts the events and political realities which have confronted the Jewish people in that land since nationhood in 1948 Fascinating to the end I will read news accounts in a different way after reading this book Hig [...]


  • Absolutely essential reading if you want to understand the conflict in the Middle EastThis book explains clearly why it is that support for Israel around the world has been weak even though Israel upholds the values of the Western World and its enemies represent the antithesis of those values Unless the world wakes up and sees reality for what it is, that Israel is not the enemy but rather that it should be supported, the world will be committing moral suicide and the world will become a far ug [...]


  • Another reviewer said that this book was interesting but distracted due to the author s axe grinding I agree it is an enjoyable read and informative, but reads less like a book and like a very long and disparately connected series of essays That said, it was enjoyable The chapters on the UN and Bruno Kreisky are most interesting I would say.


  • I thought parts of this were interesting particularly the chapter about the UN Human Rights Council, but much of the book was hard to focus on so distracted was I by the sounds of axes grinding.
