The Wall Street Journal
"Giulio Meotti's book recounts in detail the kinds of terrorist attacks to which Israel has been repeatedly subjected, and which threaten the rest of the civlized world if we collectively do not take the threat seriously and respond effectively".
John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations
"Powerful, unforgettable and indispensable."
"Meotti has chosen to remember, in powerful and fiercely eloquent prose, the victims of the remorseless assault on the Jewish state. It's a unique book"
Mark Steyn, bestselling author of America Alone: The End of the World As We Know It
Reuven Rivlin, Speaker of the Knesset
From the Author
More About the Author
"This most impressive work is a valuable publication that presents a comprehensive picture of the many acts of terrorism against Israeli citizens. It is a very useful tool that fills the information gaps that unfortunately exist among many in the international community--including the media--and even decision makers, in regard to events in Israel and to our daily struggle for survival. There is no doubt that making this information readily available, together with the detailed descriptions that help increase awareness of the cruel impact of terrorism on the victims, is a very important contribution to a better understanding of life in Israel."
Reuven Rivlin, Speaker of the Knesset
"Giulio Meotti's book recounts in detail the kinds of terrorist attacks to which Israel has been repeatedly subjected, and which threaten the rest of the civlized world if we collectively do not take the threat seriously and respond effectively."
John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations
"As Meotti vividly demonstrates in this powerful book, what is generally called the Arab-Israeli 'conflict' is in reality a relentless war being waged by the Arab/Muslim world to wipe the State of Israel off the map, and his account of how this war has affected its Jewish victims is unforgettable and indispensable."
"At a time when a resurgent Judenhass shames Europe, Giulio Meotti has done something rare and honorable, and chosen to remember, in powerful and fiercely eloquent prose, the victims of the remorseless assault on the Jewish state. In doing so, he indicts with devastating clarity not only their depraved enemies but those in the 'civilized' world who indulge and encourage such barbarism even as it prepares to devour them. This is a unique and valuable book: a portrait of a virulent global psychosis, and the real lives it snuffs out in one tiny strip of land."
Mark Steyn, bestselling author of "America Alone: The End of the World As We Know It"
"Giulio Meotti belongs to this precious and tiny group of people to whom the Western world owes the preservation of its honor, freedoms, and dignity in a time of totalitarian media control, unlimited oil corruption, terror and violent antisemitism. In our time of fashionable cowardice, Meotti's book is a monument of love and courage dedicated to the forgotten Israeli and Jewish victims of Islamic jihad in Israel and in the world."
Bat Ye'or, author of the bestseller "Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis"
"We have become accustomed to talk blandly of 'terrorism' as if it were some sort of abstraction. But Giulio Meotti in meticulous fashion puts human faces on the body count from the organized Palestinian terrorist killing of Israeli civilians--and thereby reminds us that this is not a morally equivalent struggle, but a systematic effort to extinguish Israelis and the civilization that they have created."
Victor Davis Hanson, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and author of "Carnage and Culture"

In the foreword, Roger Scruton provides the background to the never-ending war against the Jews. For a moment, the world showed remorse when the United Nations recognized the State of Israel in 1948. The country was meant to be a safe haven and a refuge but at birth it was attacked by its neighbors notwithstanding the UN vote. Since then, there have been open conflicts like those of 1967, 1973 and 2006 but the war against the Hebrews has never ceased.
Today it rages on all fronts: the media, international diplomacy, boycott initiatives and by means of the Iran - Syria - Hamas - Hezbollah axis armed by Russia. More and more the Jewish State is being demonized in the global media and international forums. This anti-Zionism, a thinly veiled form of antisemitism, thrives in the Arab World but has also become the default position of the European Union and much of the Western media where even ancient blood libels are being resurrected.
For four years the author trekked through Judea, Samaria and Galilee, conducting interviews with the families and friends of the victims.Read more ›
Mr. Meotti writes with incredible empathy as he describes the humanity of infants, small children, yeshiva students, doctors, rabbis, mothers, fathers, grandparents and so many others slaughtered as they lived productive and peaceful lives simply because they were Jews.
Mr. Meotti presents us with facts and descriptions that are generally ignored by the US media.
Clearly, Mr Meotti's title A New Shoah is accurate: just as during World War II the world did nothing while the German people murdered 6 million Jews in Europe, today the world is silent as Islamic Fundamentalists are slaughtering thousands of Jews in Israel.
Mr Meotti beautifuly connects the many generations of Jews who have been murdered simply because they studied and worshiped the Torah with the Jews being murdered in Israel today. It is a book that should be read by adults and children everywhere.
It is quite time to wake up and the book written by Meotti shows us that the people killed in the bus and in the restaurants were ordinary people living in Israel with extraordinary dreams.
They wanted a peaceful life, working for their children and their land and the liberty of expressing their faith.
It is time to know about the antisemitism coming back in many European countries and this book is just an other example : it has been printed in Italy by a tiny and unknown publisher, because the
big publisher said that it was "only" telling the story of the Jews and not of the Palestinian !
Thank you Meotti.
Gian Luigi Scarfiotti
It shows you what a prejudiced media will not dare to let you see, because their agenda is to prepare the world for genocide of the Jews of Israel, through a monstrous propaganda machine, never seen since Goebbels and Der Sterner paved the way for the holocaust.
The book is dedicated to the victims of Arab terror , and contains a harrowing and heartwrenching portrait of the horrific terror faced by the people of Israel, since Yasser Arafat launched a war of genocide against the Israeli people In this he has been fully backed , in his evil plans , by the international media, world academia,the international left, the United Nations and other powerful global interests.
As Roger Scruton tells us in his forward to this work, the 'blame Israel' approach has become the standard line of the UN, EU and world community. But the truth is that "Israel is not the cause but the target of the current belligerence, and there can be no solution to the Middle East that does not place the blame on those who live by hatred, and who have nothing to offer save destruction".
The author of this work threads together the memory of the Nazi Holocaust of 1941-1945, in which 6 million Jews in Europe were annihilated, and reminds us that the current war to cleanse the land of Israel of it's Jewish presence is part of the continuation of the same old evil.
this is because once again Jews are being murdered simply for being Jews, this time for being Jews living in their ancient homeland.Read more ›
