James L. Gelvin

Gelvin’s book exemplifies the colonialist narrative, which denies the central role of religious ideology and ethnic bigotry as the source of enduring Arab-Islamic enmity toward the Jewish state. It ignores or dismisses as irrelevant the torrent of hateful rhetoric directed at Jews in mosques, schools, bookstores, television, newspapers and from government officials. Instead, according to University of California professor James L. Gelvin “The problem is, simply put, a dispute over real estate.”

Like Dreamers, My Promise Land

Yossi Klein Halevi, Ari Shavit

Two acclaimed new books about Israel betray a disquieting lack of moral confidence in their subject and its story. A further casualty of Shavit’s book is journalism’s commitment to truth. Forecasts of doom are glaringly absent just where they are needed—and nowhere more so than in the section where Shavit describes how in the early 1990s he and his leftist political camp decided to bring “Peace, Now” by obscuring the declared intentions of Israel’s enemies.

Radical Christianity in Palestine and Israel

Dexter Van Zile

Radical Christianity is proffered as an analysis of Palestinian liberation theology but amounts to little more than a laudatory and exculpatory summary of a movement that portrays Jewish sovereignty as the greatest obstacle to peace and justice in the Middle East.

Arab Voices

James Zogby

As James Zogby says, what the Arab voices are saying to us certainly matters. However, Zogby’s Arab Voices largely ignores the most ominous Arab (and other Muslim) voices – those of crowds from London to Aden screaming in unison “Jihad, Jihad” and “Death to America” and “Death to Israel”– including those on Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca. This book purports to be aimed at clarifying Arab and Muslim attitudes regarding the September 11, 2001 attacks on America, and the War on Terror including the Iraq war. But it ignores the voices of the Arab/Islamic world’s majority proclaiming the erroneous belief that the 9/11 attacks were actually perpetrated by the CIA and Israel’s Mossad, not Arab terrorists.

The Invention of the Jewish People

Shlomo Sand

In his book, Sand’s mission is to prove invalid the foundation of Zionism – the idea of a Jewish state built on a Jewish ancestral homeland — and to promote instead the idea of a single non-Jewish state of Arabs and Jews. He undermines the legitimacy of the Jewish state and the ancient Jewish people.

Whose Land? Whose Promise? What Christians Are Not Being Told about Israel and the Palestinians

Gary M. Burge

Rev. Dr. Burge’s book is a compendium of factual errors, misstatements, omissions and distortions that portray the modern state of Israel in an inaccurate manner.
