“[T]his is an informative and useful introduction to an important component of Christian developed European anti-Semitism. Israeli, a well-published author and sociologist is a professor of Islamic, Chinese and Middle Eastern history at the Hebrew University. In this brief tome, he covers the essential origins of this vicious myth that becomes part of the European Christian folk fabric at least during the Middle Ages. However, as Israeli points out, this egregious charge has become a regular component in rabid Islamic, anti-Israeli propaganda and hypocritically employed by Israel’s foes in the United Nations. As is shown, some of the most brutal state purveyors of human rights violations have enjoyed privileged positions in international human rights organizations while simultaneously complaining about Jews and Israelis introducing poisons into Palestinian water sources and killing Palestinian youth for their blood in order to produce matzah. The author, to his credit, exposes the myth, but also how it has carried over to political commentary. This is a marvelous introduction for Jewish youth to absorb in an attempt to block both misunderstanding and outright lies.”
—Sanford R. Silverburg, Association of Jewish Libraries Reviews
