The Last War based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This is a great book for those of us that are not Jewish, but yet want to know what is really going on in the Middle East. I learned so much about the peace process and the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians. This is not completely a religious book, though it is based on the Bible. It is mainly a political view of the happenings in Israel. It is more of a mid to right wing book that balances out the spectrum on what is going on over there. I loved it!
I cannot stress forcefully enough the enormous importance of this book. With the current worldwide political climate, especially relating to events in the Middle East, it is essential that we understand the background and true context of news reports emanating from that region. Ultimately they will affect each and every one of us. David Lewis provides a thorough, comprehensive and incisive analysis of this very issue. His easy to read and in-depth analysis of the media reports and the political & religious background to the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict is absorbing. Lewis supports his analysis through a range of thought-provoking interviews with a number of political figures who possess a vast knowledge of the historical and political core issues of the present unrest. Having read this book, one will forever examine our TV News and International Media reports with a fresh outlook. It will become essential that we look for the truth behind the headlines and not forge our own understanding of the region on the opinions of reporters and the vast amounts of half-truths, political propaganda and selective omission of facts that are presented to us on a daily basis. Indeed, we become prepared and encouraged to look at current events from a Biblical perspective and not to be swayed by various media entities who obviously have their own agendas and varying opinions, upon which they base their chosen method and tone of portraying world events. Having read this book I became very much aware, frightened even, at the immense influence that our world media has upon our own personal thinking, especially in relation to the Middle East. An influence which is not based upon any standards of moral integrity or Christian values, but instead extremely prejudiced in favour of the hidden agendas of various political regimes and media entities aligned to them. We seriously owe it to ourselves to be able to disseminate the truth from the bias, propaganda and motives of those behind the headlines. This book is of great assistance in achieving just that.
