Editorial Reviews

Review

MONUMENTAL AND EXHAUSTIVELY DOCUMENTED. Monumental in scope, Edwin Black s new book The Farhud sheds light on the under-researched, 14-century-long confrontation between the Caliphate and the Jewish communities, and offers new exhaustively documented details of exactly how the Pan-Arabist and Jihadist movement of the Levant, led by the Mufti of Jerusalem, al-Husseini, partnered with the Nazis during the darkest days of the Holocaust. --Walid Phares, author of Future Jihad and Fox TV Terrorism Analyst

SUPERB ANALYSIS. Edwin Black's latest book, The Farhud, provides a superb analysis of the origins of Islamic-Fascism and is a must read for those seeking to understand the nature of Israel s current confrontation with Muslim extremism." --Isi Leibler, columnist Jerusalem Post

MASSIVE. AN IMPORTANT STORY. Black moves massive mounds of material ... to tell his important story ... you ll be amply rewarded ... a worthy addition to the historiography of the modern Middle East. --Sheldon Kirshner, Canadian Jewish News

From the point of history it is very well written.
herbert j.gerber
Prior to this book, I was unaware of Mr Black's writing until I saw his presentation on C-Span a couple of weeks ago.
Robert Granville Lee
This is a very well researched book which should be required reading of students and elected offocials.

Format: Paperback
A penetrating, pivotal and insightful look into the Islamic-Nazi alliance of World War II, the bloody pogrom of Jews by Arab mobs in Baghdad in June, 1941, the background to these events and the relevance of oil , ideology and Islam to these events.
Islam had a long history of hatred and subjugation of the Jews, known as dhimnitude. The Jews in Islamic countries were reduced ton the status of humiliated and subjugated second class citizens, with a variety of laws to ensure this.
Dhimnis were barred from building any structure higher than a Muslims, could not ride horses but only donkeys without saddles, could not build any new houses of worship or repair existing ones and were forbidden from making any noises that would attract attention to their worship or burial of their dead.
They had to wear distinctive clothes to identify them, Jews had to wear yellow, and the mandatory yellow patch which was forced upon the Jews by the Nazis had it's origins in Baghdad, and not in Medieval Europe as commonly believed.
The idea of Jews in the Middle East being sovereign in an independent state, and not subjugated to Muslim rule and humiliated under Dhimni status is what was intolerable to the Arabs and the roots of the violent Arab rejection of the state of Israel, and before that of migration of Jews into the Land of Israel. This was anathema to the demand for Arab supremacy and dhimnitude
"Certainly the Palestinian population was accustomed to the many migrants from the far reaches of the Ottoman Empire and especially the extended Middle East who settled in the land. But the local Arab community harbored a special resentment, at one level or another, for all these new Jewish neighbours.

This little known bit of history has been brought to light in this well researched book. If you want to know why we have so many problems with our Muslim population in the world, this book, along with "Paris 1919" is a great place to start. The political aftermath of WWI was devastating enough but Hitler's Foreign Office simply fanned the flames between Jews and Muslims to a bonfire. Tehran, Baghdad, Jerusalem, Berlin, the ugly history is all here...

The author and researchers of this book have clearly put countless hours into researching, citing, and writing about every fact in the book. "The Farhud" is sure to be a valuable tool in confronting this history.

Edwin Black's "The Farhud" is a great read, rich in history and written with a sense of drama worthy of a good novel. What I find so engrossing about this book is the way the author weaves together various threads of history--going back to the beginnings of civilization itself!--into a tapestry that contextualizes the Arab assault on Baghdad Jews in 1941. When he tells us in his subtitle that he is investigating "roots" of the Arab-Nazi alliance he is perhaps understating his achievement. Not only the roots are revealed, but the various streams of "nourishment" as well.

Some of these roots and their nourishing streams touch upon geology, cultural traditions, ideology, government, and modern corporate practices. Black does not paint a glowing picture of Arab culture, but neither is he about to salute the virtues of the western powers. The fact is (and this is a key to the dynamics leading up to the Farhud) the Arabs were betrayed in their hopes and expectations of a unified Arab state by the victorious allies in World War I. That, and then having to see the birth of a Jewish state fueled resentment that "justified" in the Arab mind a dual opposition to the British as well as the Jews, and alliance with Hitler was the path to "killing two birds" together.

There is another important aspect of this work, and that is the context Black gives us for understanding the notorious "Transfer Agreement" between Zionist Jews and the new Nazi regime. This event is often cited by flaming anti-Israel zealots as an example of nefarious Zionists doing anything to realize their plan to "steal" Palestine.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is far too dense to be easily summarized. The history of the development of the current clash of civilizations can hardly be underestimated in its importance. As a student of history myself, I preordered this book and was not disappointed. I could not put it down. In the Preface, Mr. Black makes a contract with the reader--not to read here and there, but from beginning to end. There is a good reason for this. I'm shocked that by March 2011 there are only 6 reviews of this stunningly researched and executed book. But perhaps I should not be. This is a reflection of the cloud over liberty and free speech that currently hovers over the literate in our civil society. I have known of the alliance of the Grand Mufti and Herr Hitler for a long time, what its roots were, and where it led. And today, the then little-known Muslim Brotherhood is seeking hegemony over the Middle East again. This is a must read for anyone who truly wants to know the roots of the current political economy--for to know the roots of the tree, is to know how it will grow, and where the fruit will fall. This is a masterful book.
