    a reviewer

    Mr. Price did a good job writing about the mideast and Jerusalem. He also explained the evidence against Palestinian and Muslim claims. I found his definitions of Islam lacking just a little, but I agreed with most of the information that was in his book. However it is possible, if not likely, that the reader might put down this book with the idea that all muslims are blood thirsty and evil although there are many muslims like this, many are actually descent people. I still think that when the author wrote about the end times views of muslims, all muslims, he was very accurate. I was told by an ex-muslim that even the nicest are ready to kill anyone when the end of days is at hand. Also I completely agree when he says that Islam is not a peaceful religion, he gave us many Quranic verses to back that up

    Feelings not Facts

    Randall Price asks the reader on pages 52-54 to look at facts rather than to follow feelings. This is an admirable principle. However, when I read those pages a second time, I realized that they included few facts and mostly emotional rhetoric. Why didn't he stick with his principle? Perhaps it is because his facts don't hold up. On those same pages (54), he states that 'the Arabs owned a mere three per cent of the land' when the UN voted the partition plan of Palestine in 1947. The UN documents, and every textbook since, tell us that the situation was exactly the opposite: 3 % had been purchased by Jewish interests. These same documents explain that UN Resolution granted 53 % of the land to the Israeli state and 47 % for a Palestinian state. Again his facts are in error when he says that Arabs were given 82 % of the land. The rest of the book is no better. His errors of fact include: **reporting on page 36 the rumor that one of the pilots of the WTS bombings on Sept. 11 had previously bombed an Israeli bus--check any urban legend site to discredit this one. Here he doesn't hide his motive (He links the freedom of this pilot to the Oslo peace process which he wants to discredit--but with not a shread of evidence.) ** bashing Islam throughout the book. One claim on page 99 is that Muslims arriving in Jerusalem in the 7th century built the al Aqsa mosque over the Basilica of Mary to show domination of their religion. Forty years ago that idea might have impressed a few people because no one knew where the Basilica of Mary was located. However, in the 1970s an Israeli archaeologist discovered the basicila in another part of Jerusalem. **romanticizing the role of the USA in the founding of Israel. On pages 69-70 he declares that the USA cast the 'deciding vote' at the UN on Resolution 181. Rather with 33 yes and 13 no, one can see that the US vote was incidental in the 2/3 needed. These are just a handful of factual errors. I have accumulated a long list. It seems that the author has based his book on feelings and made up the facts to fit. He also disregards much recent historical research which raises many questions and shows that the roots of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict are complicated. I write as an individual who looks fondly upon the State of Israel. Its future is dependent upon close relationships with its neighbors, not domination. Books like this do not help.

    The Struggle for the Temple Mount

    You can easily skip the few Christian fundamentalist paragraphs, if that sort of thing turns you off. What Randall Price has to tell here is a fascinating story about the efforts of Islamics to obliterate the evidence of the presence of Jews in the Holy Land in biblical times. Islamics have dug away and discarded tons of precious archeological treasures in what is thought to be "Solomon's Stables" under the Temple Mount, and have constructed the world's largest underground mosque in its stead, with huge, garish, luxurious auxiliary chambers. The Israelis have been ineffectual at controlling the devastation. It is nothing less than a struggle for history. You don't have to be on the side of the West to be fascinated by this little-known but still ongoing story.

    Just for the record ...

    Until very recently, the American television media was highly biased in favor of Israel and told us little or nothing about the Palestinian side. So the claim of 'media bias against Israel' is simply untrue. The fact is that, while terrorism on both sides must be condemned and stopped, the 'iniquity' of Israel is clear to any student of Mid East history. And the U.S. is and has been Israel's enabler since 1948 with $3 billion in aid annually and state of the art military hardware. Peace will come only when legitimate Palestinean grievances are resolved and Israeli occupation ends. There can be a State of Israel, but it cannot be as big is the Zionists want. Might does not make right, and it is high time that the world community stood up to Israel and tell them, enough is enough.

    Smashes Through The Myths and Propaganda. Essential Reading.

    Seldom has a book been more relevant and more timely. With the ongoing 'war against terrorism', the current climate in the political and international arenas, and the unrest in the Middle East, the author delves into the myths surrounding the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and sifts through the Islamic propaganda and media bias against the Jewish state. With his exceptional expertise, the learned author approaches the whole scenario from a Biblical basis and analyses the entire issue, past, present and future, with alarming insight. We all owe it to ourselves to read this book and to be completely aware as to what is happening around us at this crucial time in history. The contents of this book will open our eyes and enlighten us to the wholesale deception that is presently surrounding us. We need to know the truth about Islamic fundamentalism, it's real agenda, the Middle East crisis and the facts concerning the Israeli-Palestinian issue and how it affects the rest of the world, ourselves included. This book is full of such facts from cover to cover and is very easy to read. I also seriously recommend two other books by the same author entitled, 'Jerusalem In Prophecy' and 'The Coming Last Days Temple'.
