Editorial Reviews

Review

"A monumental study of pain and grief, of mourning and remembrance, of hatred and love.Indispensable for anybody who wants to understand Israel's position in the world and the tragic position of the Jews in history
The Wall Street Journal

"Giulio Meotti's book recounts in detail the kinds of terrorist attacks to which Israel has been repeatedly subjected, and which threaten the rest of the civlized world if we collectively do not take the threat seriously and respond effectively".
John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations

"Powerful, unforgettable and indispensable."
Norman Podhoretz

"Meotti has chosen to remember, in powerful and fiercely eloquent prose, the victims of the remorseless assault on the Jewish state. It's a unique book"
Mark Steyn, bestselling author of America Alone: The End of the World As We Know It

"This most impressive work is a valuable publication that presents a comprehensive picture of the many acts of terrorism against Israeli citizens" 
Reuven Rivlin, Speaker of the Knesset

From the Author

"A New Shoah: The Untold Story of Israel's Victims of Terrorism" tells a heart-wrenching story that almost never makes the front pages--or even the back pages--of the world's newspapers: the story of what jihadist terrorism has done to the lives, souls and memories of the people of the State of Israel. The European edition of the Wall Street Journal called the book "a monumental study of pain and grief, of mourning and remembrance, of hatred and love," which is not an exaggeration. Nor is the title of Meotti's study misplaced, for he powerfully asserts the continuity between Nazi-era Jew-hatred and the annihilationist project of Hamas and similar jihadist organizations today.  It's essential reading for anyone who wants to measure the full human drama underway in the Holy Land".
George Weigel

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAME on October 2, 2010
Format: Hardcover
A New Shoah preserves the memory of Israeli victims of the Second Intifada which started 10 years ago. Giulio Meotti gathered the testimony of many Israeli families and individuals that have been affected by these terror attacks that have claimed more than 1700 lives and injured over 10 000 people. Most of the victims were unarmed civilians going about their daily lives - the young, the old, children, men and women who were murdered just for being Jews.

In the foreword, Roger Scruton provides the background to the never-ending war against the Jews. For a moment, the world showed remorse when the United Nations recognized the State of Israel in 1948. The country was meant to be a safe haven and a refuge but at birth it was attacked by its neighbors notwithstanding the UN vote. Since then, there have been open conflicts like those of 1967, 1973 and 2006 but the war against the Hebrews has never ceased.

Today it rages on all fronts: the media, international diplomacy, boycott initiatives and by means of the Iran - Syria - Hamas - Hezbollah axis armed by Russia. More and more the Jewish State is being demonized in the global media and international forums. This anti-Zionism, a thinly veiled form of antisemitism, thrives in the Arab World but has also become the default position of the European Union and much of the Western media where even ancient blood libels are being resurrected.

For four years the author trekked through Judea, Samaria and Galilee, conducting interviews with the families and friends of the victims.

A New Shoah by Giulio Meotti is a powerful and poignant book that personalizes the lives, often albeit brief, of hundreds of Jews murdered by Islamic Fundamentalists primarily in Israel during the last 15 years for the sole reason that they were Jews.

Mr. Meotti writes with incredible empathy as he describes the humanity of infants, small children, yeshiva students, doctors, rabbis, mothers, fathers, grandparents and so many others slaughtered as they lived productive and peaceful lives simply because they were Jews.

Mr. Meotti presents us with facts and descriptions that are generally ignored by the US media.

Clearly, Mr Meotti's title A New Shoah is accurate: just as during World War II the world did nothing while the German people murdered 6 million Jews in Europe, today the world is silent as Islamic Fundamentalists are slaughtering thousands of Jews in Israel.

Mr Meotti beautifuly connects the many generations of Jews who have been murdered simply because they studied and worshiped the Torah with the Jews being murdered in Israel today. It is a book that should be read by adults and children everywhere.

When I was attending university in Montreal, I would often take the train home. On the way to the train through the concourse of the downtown station, I would pass by a confectioner's booth run by an elderly lady. On most evenings she wore long sleeves, but sometimes on hot summer evenings she would be wearing a sleeveless blouse. On those occasions I could clearly see the camp number tattooed on the inside of her upper arm. This is the first image that came to my mind as I read Meotti's book. Justice and morality demand that if Giulio Meotti had never written this book, someone else must.

It's very difficult to get through these descriptions of innocent Jews in Israel being slaughtered on a daily basis. That's why liberal American Jews will never read a book like this, just like they made sure not to "know" anything about the Holocaust as it was happening. American "liberal" (but not for liberty) Jews were true anti-Semites then as they are now.

Finally the true story of nearly 2.000 people killed in Israel during the so called palestinian "intifada", when Arafat refused the peace for his own people and declared the war by terror.
It is quite time to wake up and the book written by Meotti shows us that the people killed in the bus and in the restaurants were ordinary people living in Israel with extraordinary dreams.
They wanted a peaceful life, working for their children and their land and the liberty of expressing their faith.
It is time to know about the antisemitism coming back in many European countries and this book is just an other example : it has been printed in Italy by a tiny and unknown publisher, because the
big publisher said that it was "only" telling the story of the Jews and not of the Palestinian !
Thank you Meotti.

In all fairness, I have not finished the book. But I can say that as a Jew, to have my feelings validated by a non-Jew, and one without an agenda in doing so, is an affirmation that there is hope for humanity. Because not quite 70 years after the Holocaust the murder of Jews for being Jews is greeted with glee in many parts of the world. The Jewish response has always been to remember, to memorialize the dead so that they live on. Author Giulio Meotti does that for us, in that very same spirit. Here he profiles these very people, murdered for being Jews, in Eretz HaKodesh, the land promised to the Jewish people by G-d, a promise, until recently, universally acknowledged, if not accepted by the other two major religions. Now Islam rises up like the Fourth Reich to put an end to the Jewish people, and we are left with the stories of those who perished and those who survived. If you believe in human decency, read this book. Even if you are from the other side and believe that murdering Jews is right and payback for "stealing" what is truly ours, read this book. It challenges the humanity in us all.
