"Well-organized and lucid... [Arabs & Israel for Beginners] does indeed deserve a large reading audience." -- Arthur Goldschmidt, Jr., author of A Concose History of the Middle East
"Take the research of Noam Chomsky... enliven it with skillful pensketched drawing... then trace 12,000 years of turbulent history with the irreverence of Saturday Night Live, and you have... Ron David's Arabs & Israel for Beginners." -- John Mahoney, Executive Director of Americans for Middle East Understanding
About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
As the West prepares to start a second war in the Middle East, there is now open discussion within and outside Israel about the need to ethnically cleanse the territories that Israel has occupied illegally and colonized since 1967. Apologists for the policies of Israel - a nation with weapons of mass destruction, which flouts international law and ignores its responsibilities under the 4th Geneva Convention - do nothing to secure the long term future of Israelis.
A common tactic used to respond to critics of Israeli policies - including Jewish critics - is to suggest that they are anti-semites! This book will help people to understand just how cheap a tactic this is. It does nothing for the image of Jews and Judaism to imply that the interests of the religion and its adherents coincide with the interests of a colonialist state created in the 20th century.
For people who want to understand the expansionist nature of the Zionist project, there is no better place to start than Ron and Susan David's excellent book. I hope they publish an updated edition, and that their work does not become yet another victim of censorship and suppression of views questioning the moral credentials of Zionism.

Glad I didn't pay for it, someone left it at my house. I started reading it hoping to get more info on the subject. The book turned out to be nothing more than propaganda.Published on January 1, 2013 by Annon
This is an illustrated work. But it's no comic book. It will begin to shake your faith in America's knee-jerk support of Israel. Read morePublished on December 16, 2011 by Wretched Excess
