Ilan Pappe, Israel's leading revisionist historian and author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine
"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."
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."
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

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
