Overview

Israel and the Palestinian nightmare is not only a reliable reference book; it is a captivating description and review of the Arab-Israeli conflict. It offers an honest account of where Israel went wrong, covers facts relating to the origins of the nation of Israel and the profound effect that history has had upon contemporary events. The Arab-Israeli conflict is not a conflict over land nor is it rooted in ancient claims of two peoples to the same small piece of real estate in the Middle East; but rather it is a battle between Judaism and Islam. A battle the Christian world has been touched by but so far timidly involved with.

If we understand how the conflict developed, we'll be better prepared to deal with events to come.

The claim that a group of people, foreign to the land, wanted to impose their sovereignty through expropriation on another group of people that inhabited that land is nothing but a modern day invention of those who seek to destroy the young Jewish state. Millions of young adults are exposed to the heckling of modern day anti-Semites in almost every college campus and in many 'intellectual' circles; and the obvious bias and Israel-loathing is echoed by most of the international media outlets, rarely encountering opposition. Winston Churchill once said, "the truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is."

Plenty of historical and archeological evidence proves Israel's historic roots and disproves every Arab claim to the land; and still most public and academic outlets claim that Israel's situation is a simple case of occupation of a foreign land. Ironically they are right. There is an unfair and unnecessary occupation of land but not by the Jews that returned to their homeland, but on the part of the Arab multitude who assumed a fake identity with the sole purpose of destroying the Jewish dream of the rebirth of Israel.

Israel and the Palestinian nightmare answers some of the toughest questions regarding Israel and the Palestinian people. It takes the reader through an historical timeline that puts many issues into proper perspective. The author has tough words for both Israelis and the Arab world, and the book contains inspiring articles and commentaries by Middle East experts such as Yoram Ettinger, Phyllis Chesler, Paul Eidelberg; as well as thought-provoking observations written by Larry Miller, David Wilder and Shifra Hoffman among others. This book will clarify many of the misconceptions that exist regarding this conflict and it is essential reading for both Jew and gentile alike.

"In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act."

Amazing book. Great timeline. A bit controversial. It touches upon the most sensitive issues that have turned the Middle East into a spiritual and physical battlefield. I love the book. Very intense.

Ze'ev Shemer answers some of the toughest questions regarding Israel and the Palestinian people. He takes the reader through an historical timeline that puts many issues into perspective. He has tough words for both Israelis and the Arab world. I was surprised to find inspiring articles and commentaries by Yoram Ettinger, Phyllis Chesler, Paul Eidelberg, and even a comedic outlook written by Larry Miller. This book will clarify many of the misconceptions that exist regarding this conflict that seems to have been going on forever. The book is appropriate for both Jew and gentile alike, but I do think that many Muslims might find some of its contents less than agreeable. People that have wondered what the conflict is all about will be able to read in plain English what I thought was a clear explanation of an otherwise complicated issue. There were some instances where the book dealt with the internal struggle that exists within the Israeli population, issues that might not be as relevant to those not living in Israel. I highly recommend this book.
