This well written book puts forward a case for a larger Israel but it would be wrong to regard it as being a balanced view!
The research and "evidence" is too selective for this book to be held up as an attempt to review the conflict with an open mind and although the opinions are presented forcefully; the analysis, such as it is, still reads like a psuedo zionist manifesto. Sincere beliefs in an idealised people and their nation's destiny will encourage those who are already committed to the greater Israel cause. Those who already justify any of Israel's actions (however regretable those actions may be to most of us) will be heartened by this book but seekers after truth will recognise that this case is far from proven and that there are valid Palestinian arguments and voices which should also be listened to.

The Case for a Larger Israel is the first serious work that dares to propose an alternate solution to what appears an insoluable problem. Propaganda on both sides has brought us nothing but protracted war. Preoccupation with victimhood may have made each side feel morally superior while justifying continuous terror and retaliation. The time has come to look at this problem from a new prospective, and The Case for a Larger Israel offers us an opportunity to do so, and David Naggar and his masterful and refreshing evaluation of the 'intractable' problem are to be congratulated.
