Editorial Reviews

Review

"A monumental study of pain and grief, of mourning and remembrance, of hatred and love.Indispensable for anybody who wants to understand Israel's position in the world and the tragic position of the Jews in history
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."
Norman Podhoretz

"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

"This most impressive work is a valuable publication that presents a comprehensive picture of the many acts of terrorism against Israeli citizens" 
Reuven Rivlin, Speaker of the Knesset

From the Author

"A New Shoah: The Untold Story of Israel's Victims of Terrorism" tells a heart-wrenching story that almost never makes the front pages--or even the back pages--of the world's newspapers: the story of what jihadist terrorism has done to the lives, souls and memories of the people of the State of Israel. The European edition of the Wall Street Journal called the book "a monumental study of pain and grief, of mourning and remembrance, of hatred and love," which is not an exaggeration. Nor is the title of Meotti's study misplaced, for he powerfully asserts the continuity between Nazi-era Jew-hatred and the annihilationist project of Hamas and similar jihadist organizations today.  It's essential reading for anyone who wants to measure the full human drama underway in the Holy Land".
George Weigel

Mr. Meotti graduated from the University of Florence with a degree in philosophy. He has expertise on antisemitism, Israel, Islam, multiculturalism and Middle East.

***

"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."

Norman Podhoretz


"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"

The book also serves as a profile of Israeli life.
Pieter Uys
That is because I have had to take numerous breaks in reading in order to pause and sob, to work through my tears in order to continue.

Every decent human on this earth will stand with Israel in her hour of need.

Format: Hardcover
A New Shoah preserves the memory of Israeli victims of the Second Intifada which started 10 years ago. Giulio Meotti gathered the testimony of many Israeli families and individuals that have been affected by these terror attacks that have claimed more than 1700 lives and injured over 10 000 people. Most of the victims were unarmed civilians going about their daily lives - the young, the old, children, men and women who were murdered just for being Jews.

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.

A New Shoah by Giulio Meotti is a powerful and poignant book that personalizes the lives, often albeit brief, of hundreds of Jews murdered by Islamic Fundamentalists primarily in Israel during the last 15 years for the sole reason that they were Jews.

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.

This invaluable, informative and harrowing digest tells the story little told before, about the victims of the terror war against Israel and her people.
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.

Amazing book that everyone Jewish or not should read.
Just remember when you feed the wolf that comes to your door,
he will always come back for more. When he done eating the Jews, he will certainly come for you!

In all fairness, I have not finished the book. But I can say that as a Jew, to have my feelings validated by a non-Jew, and one without an agenda in doing so, is an affirmation that there is hope for humanity. Because not quite 70 years after the Holocaust the murder of Jews for being Jews is greeted with glee in many parts of the world. The Jewish response has always been to remember, to memorialize the dead so that they live on. Author Giulio Meotti does that for us, in that very same spirit. Here he profiles these very people, murdered for being Jews, in Eretz HaKodesh, the land promised to the Jewish people by G-d, a promise, until recently, universally acknowledged, if not accepted by the other two major religions. Now Islam rises up like the Fourth Reich to put an end to the Jewish people, and we are left with the stories of those who perished and those who survived. If you believe in human decency, read this book. Even if you are from the other side and believe that murdering Jews is right and payback for "stealing" what is truly ours, read this book. It challenges the humanity in us all.
