Overview


Every day in Israel, memorials are being held for the victims of Islamic fundamentalism. Since the “Second Intifada” began ten years ago, Palestinian terrorists have claimed 1,700 Israeli civilians. This equates to a staggering 70,000 victims, when adjusted to the United States population for scale.

In A New Shoah, Italian journalist Giulio Meotti’s extensive interviews with those Israeli families torn apart by hundreds of daily attacks in buses, cafés, kibbutzim, restaurants, night clubs, and religious shrines appear for the first time. A New Shoah reveals the stories, ideals, and faces behind the statistics, from the anticommunist dissidents who fled Moscow, to the American businessman who left everything behind to live the dream of Jewish pioneers.

The remarkable individuals who make up A New Shoah reveal the raison d'être of the State of Israel and make a definitive case for its safeguarding. Judaism teaches that for survivors, the hazkarah, or the act of remembering, is the only way to defy the murder of Jewish people by their enemies. When we read these pages and remember, we empower Israel’s resistance to terror.
