Great book to crack into the mysterious conflict between the Arabs & Israelis. Definitely recommend this to any Bible Scholar and Christian and advocates of Israel. The reading is very articulate and flows well. The level of depth of knowledge of this book is enjoyable for any history lover.

Dr. Bard's most recently updated book MYTH & FACTS is probably the best & most factual source on accurate information regarding Israel. Each inaccurate half truth (& total fabrication) is exhaustively analyzed & refuted. An invaluable source book for friends of Israel when debating detractors.

Far too many people with very strong opinions have a very poor idea of the historical facts in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It would be well if they used this book as a reference source.

This is an essential resource for the bookshelf of anyone who wants to work out the truth behind the decades old conflict between Israel and the Arab/Islamic world.
Bard examines every falsehood about the conflict and shows what utter trash it is, giving us a starting explanation of the true state of affairs.
Bard begins by dispelling the lie that there was no Jewish presence in the Land of Israel between the Roman destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE and the re-birth of the modern Zionist movement.

There has always been a Jewish presence in the Holy Land for the last 3000 years.
Bard outlines how large communities were re-established in Jerusalem and Safed in the ninth century and thrived in other towns and cities in Palestine during the Middle Ages.
By the early 19th century-before the rebirth of the modern Zionist movement- more than 10 000 Jews throughout the Holy Land.

He deals with the evil lies that "Zionism is racism" pointing out that Zionism is the national liberation movement of the Jewish people, which holds that Jews, like any other people are entitled to a homeland.

The presence of hundreds of thousands of dark skinned Jews from Ethiopia, Yemen, Iran and India, among other countries is the best refutation of this wicked calumny.
Furthermore the 1 million Christian and Muslim Arabs, Druze, Baha'is, Circassians and other ethnic groups have full civil and political rights in Israel.

Furthermore Bard deals with the other evil lie that equates Zionism with colonialism pointing out that colonialism means the exploitation of others, but that nothing could be further from colonialism than a people returning to their own land and doing all their own labour as the Zionists did.

The book is concise and clearly set out. There is so much detail that one cannot take it all in at once. A good reference book to go back to time and time again.

Bard's encyclopedic knowledge is displayed in an organized, easy to read, factual way.
He presents information in a fair, non-biased manner.
