Format: Paperback
The saying "A loved child has many names" definitely applies to Israel Shamir. Following the war crimes committed against the Palestinians, Shamir felt he no longer could keep quiet. That decision has made him unpopular with the Jewish Zionists, who immediately initiated a campaign to smear Shamir. Though powerful, the lobby has not yet managed to stop him.

In Pardes, Shamir deals with Jewish ideology, which he sees as the cause of current events in the Middle East. Inspired by great Jewish dissidents like Simone Weil, Shamir finds Judaism problematic and calls for the dismantlment of the Jewish Apartheid state. Instead, he favours equal rights for all in one singel state.

Pardes can be said to be Shamir's explanation to why he came to denounce Judaism and embrace Jesus Christ as the savior of man. It's a great book everyone interested in Jewish ideology must read.

Format: Paperback
Israel Shamir has chutzpah. He lives in Israel and yet crticizes the brutality, danger, hypocrisy and illegitimacy of the Jews-only apartheid state like no one else, and yet does it in a constructive, hopeful and poetic way. Amazing. The Zionists have no recourse to logical disputation in this case so must resort to smear attacks in order to debunk his arguments. Not only Pardes but Shamir's other books, Flowers of Galilee and Our Lady of Sorrow are required reading for anyone seeking a solution to problems in the Middle East. As Shamir points out, the real antisemites are the Ashkenazi Jews from Eastern Europe who helped to create the Jewish state and now run it to their class advantage. Palestinians have more semitic blood than many of these Jews (for what that's worth), and being "Jewish" is nothing more than an ideology of exclusivitism and domination, which Gentiles (Christian Zionists and others) can join in with if they want to share the spoils in the Neo-con/Zionist grab for global domination.

Format: Paperback
This is a great expose of the dark side of Judaism all the

more convinicing by the fact that Shamir is Jewish. He has

now converted to Christian Orthodoxy and to some extent, this book

explains why he did so. He uses the traditonal four fold analysis

that the Jewish philosophers and mystics use to interpret the Tor-

ah, but he uses it to analyze Judaism itself. He concludes that

they have ceased to worship God and for a long time now have ac-

tually worshiped themselves-Jehovah being just themselves writ

large. This process started before Christ, but the murder of Christ

was the epitome of it. One caveat though: this book may not be for

the beginer because they will find it unbelievable. To get the most

out of Shamir's book, you already have to know the territory: how

the Jews take credit for Christ's death and even boast about it. That

gentiles are animals who only exist to serve the Jews, etc. All this

and more is found in their secret scripture, the Talmud. Once the

reader has researched this for himself, then he is ready for "Pardes"

by Israel Shamir.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Israel/Palestine is the model of the world Americans want to achieve. It has peasants and their flocks dying of thirst, and on the hilltop there are villas and swimming pools for the chosen folk. It has a huge army and it has many labourers without any rights. In order to turn all the world into Palestine they began now World War 3 against the Third World."
