Editorial Reviews

Review

"In this extraordinary book, Alan Hart has succeeded in elucidating for us the immediate and long term dangers involved in the unconditional Western support for Zionism and its oppressive policies against the Palestinians. The author provides us with a chilling exposure of how this embrace developed and continues to endanger the Jewish existence and fuels the anti-Semitism that refuses to disappear. Motivated by a genuine concern for peace in Israel and Palestine and beyond in the world at large, Alan Hart has written not only a strong indictment of Zionism, based on both research and personal experience, but also provided us with a charter for a better future..."
Ilan Pappe, Israel's leading revisionist historian and author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine

Clare Short, MP-UK and International Development Secretary in Tony Blairs government until her resignation over Iraq

"I hope that all who are concerned about the troubles of the Middle East will read this book. It is immensely readable and a magnificent piece of work which reflects Alan Hart's close relationship with Israeli and Palestinian leaders. We are in terrible trouble in the Middle East. The book explains how we got here and how we could move forward. The tragedy is hurting Palestinians, Israelis and the rest of the world. All who wish to engage in finding a way forward will be helped by reading this book."
Mark Bruzonsky
MiddleEast.org, founder
World Jewish Congress, first Washington Representative

"As a principled and historical review it is excellent, of great importance I think in terms of content, and the series when finished may even be considered heroic in effort and scope."
Samira Quraishy, researcher, Islamic Human Rights Commission

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An informed, enlightening, candid and sometimes disturbing expose' of Zionism. A must read for anyone and everyone who wants to be truly informed on the origin and ongoing Arab-Iraeli conflict versus the babble of the media. Clear delineations between religious Judaism and political Zionism that should provoke healthy debate and clarity for intelligent discussion. After reading this book, no one need ever be intimidated by the false accusation of being labeled anti-Semitic for opposing Zionism. Perhaps future revisions could focus on more inclusive definitions of religious or spiritual Zionism.

193 of 231 people found the following review helpful By Many Worlds on November 15, 2007
Format: Hardcover
The premise of this book is obvious from the title and the author presents a wealth of factual evidence to back it up. Zionism is an ideology based on the claim that "God" gave land in the Middle East to the Jewish people several thousand years ago. The concept is clearly ridiculous given that the vast majority of Jewish people today have no relationship to the Jews of antiquity other than a religious belief that many adopted relatively recently. This fact alone makes a mockery of the idea that a portion of land in the Middle East belongs to the Jews of today. It also makes a mockery of the idea that to criticize Zionism is anti-semitic - hatred of Jewish people.

The Zionist movement is and always has been owned by a small group of individuals who used the manipulative power of religion to further their own selfish agenda.

The January 16th 2007 edition of Boston Globe ran an editorial by the editorial page director, H.D.S. Greenway. It was a typical apparently left-of-center piece on a possible attack on Iran, with Greenway urging everyone to "step back and take a deep breath". Towards the end of the piece however, Greenway makes a comment in which he momentarily strikes at the heart of the matter only to then gloss it over with a line taken directly from the Zionist book of truisms.

"Every Israeli prime minister has had to fear in one remote corner of the brain that the effect of Zionism might be to gather all the Jews in one place for destruction. This fear has been brought front and center by Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's criminally irresponsible call for the destruction of the Jewish state."

The only truth in this statement is found in the words "the effect of Zionism [has been] to gather all the Jews in one place for destruction.

Format: Hardcover
Alan Hart is friend to Jews and Palestinians. He was a personal friend of both Golda Meir and Yasser Arafat. His insight into the recent history of modern Israel and past and current conflicts in the Middle East is outstanding. It is a must read for all who are genuinely seeking a broad understanding of the most important events facing our world today.

Format: Paperback
The most striking thing about Alan Hart's book to me, and what sets it apart, is his extraordinary access to the personalities and his on-scene perspective on events that he writes of. As British tv's ace journalist there two generations ago, he knew and was known to the leading figures of Zionism-- people like Golda Meir, Moshe Dayan, Shimon Peres, Levi Eschol, Menachem Begin etc (not sure of them all, but this is representative). And he witnessed what was going on, day after day, as a major correspondent.

Because Hart's book begins by recounting a few personal experiences with the great political figures of Israel, as I began reading it I thought to my self 'uh-oh , I hope this isn't going to be a memoir and parade of name-dropping.' My concerns were quickly dispelled. As it turns out, his selection of stories bears perfectly on his topic. What he actually presents is a close and deep journalistic reflection on Zionism during its formative decades. Again, this comes from an on-scene journalist's perspective rather than that of a remote academic, so the effect is exceptional. Also, he is not himself Jewish or an Israeli, as the writers of so many good Zionist histories are (e.g. Shahak, Lilienthal, Morris, Pappe). Anyway, after Hart gets a few stunning anecdotes into play to set the stage, he gets into telling his story as a fact-filled, methodical and very readable historical narrative.

I must admit that I did not read carefully, however,as the book is quite voluminous and I frankly have read so many books on 20th century Zionism that it is hard to keep my interest and close attention throughout. This does not at all reflect on Hart's style, which is engaging and powerful.

One of the clearest written books on the complex Israel-Palestine issue that I have read. Anxiously awaiting his second volume.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Alan Hart does an excellent job in explaining what should be obvious to anyone taking an objective view on the terror that Zionism has caused not just the Jews, but the entire world. This subject is of course taboo and won't even be approached by traditional media sources, yet it's a common mainstream topic on the internet. Of course, it's also the primary reason that the powers that be are trying to sensor the internet!

Hart does what needs to be done, go back into history to demonstrate how Zionism has shaped the western world's view of international relations and politics by using the shield and sword of antisemitism. Without going into detail (which he could have and should have)Hart explains how propaganda has turned into Zionist mythology and none more so than the Holocaust story.
