Interesting, Engaging, Honest, and NECESSARY
I must admit that I'm only midway through this book, but I find it incredible. As a Jewish-American student who is against the Occupation of Palestine, and who is concerned with American Jewry's silencing of such political beliefs, I am excited to finally be given a book that speaks to so much of what I've been thinking. The contributions range from lengthy essays, to shorter news pieces, to poetry, and historical documents -- as such, the individual pieces make up a collection that suggests the complexity of the situation, and the NEED to examine in from a number of viewpoints and disciplines. It's hard to believe that individuals can disagree with some of the hard evidence provided in this collection. I think it's a must-read for anyone who is committed to ending the Occupation, as well as to any American Jew, Zionist, or citizen who has any investment in ending the unnecessary violence on both sides.Was this review helpful?

IT WAS TIME THAT SOMEBODY SPEAKS UP THE MIND OF MANY OF US WITH INTEGRITY AND OBJECTIVITY .
THERE IS NOTHING SHAMEFUL ABOUT SAYING THE TRUTH NO MATTER HOW HARD IT IS. IN FACT IT SHOWS THE NOBILITY OF THE SOUL OF THE WRITERS THAT ONLY COURAGESOULY REFLECTED THE IDEAS OF THE GROWING NUMBER OF THE DISSENT. I AM PROUD OF SUCH A PIECE AND WELCOME MORE OF IT. IT IS NECESSARY TO CRITICIZE CONSCIOUSLY ONCE DEEDS IN ORDER TO EVOLUATE AS A NATION AND GAIN CREDIBILITY.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I think the fact that this book invites so much flak, especially, from 'Sharon sympathizers' is a testimony to the truth revealed in this book. I, personally, having been following the story for quiet long, would regard this book to all those who seek the truth. When the truth stands out clear, falsehood persihes, for verily, by nature, falsehood is bound to perish!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

1 star is too much
This book is so horrible. I'm a liberal myself and I bought this book thinking i'd enjoy it. I hated it. It's so anti-Israel and it's so disgusting that the writers are JEWISH. It's definitely the most liberal piece of work ever printed. If you're anti-Israel or anti-Semitic, you'll enjoy this. If you have morals and intelligence, you won'tWas this review helpful?
