Product Description

Review

This book debunks convincingly and forcefully the myth of Israel being 'the only democracy' in the Middle East. As this book shows, the treatment of the Palestinians in Israel is the ultimate proof that the Jewish State is anything but democratic. (Prof. Ilan Pappe, author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine)

Essential reading to understand why there can never be peace unless Palestinian citizens of Israel are granted full equality, something they are systematically denied by Israel's aggressive, and increasingly unrestrained Zionist ethnocracy. (li Abunimah, Co-founder of Electronic Intifada, author of 'One Country' (2007))

Ben White offers a holistic view of the Palestine/Israel problem – then goes beyond it to point towards its only just and hopeful solution. A significant and timely contribution to the political discourse so necessary today. (Ahdaf Soueif, author of Booker Prize-shortlisted The Map of Love)

With surgical precision, a wealth of research and sharp analytical intellect, White astutely exposes the oxymoron inherent in the definition of Israel as a 'Jewish and democratic' state and presents a compelling case for holding Israel accountable for committing the crime of apartheid, as defined by the UN. (Omar Barghouti, human rights activist and author)

It is rare to find a book covering such a complex, crucial topic that states its case so succinctly, yet so comprehensively and eloquently. (Sally Bland, Jordan Times)

Ben White writes eloquantly and conciely about the restrictions on Palestinians in Israel.
Can Israel be both a democratic and a Jewish state?
Read this book to find the answer.

I bought this book and thought it was an amazing read, a real eye-opener. Knowing what i know about Israel and their disregard for human life and international laws, this book only re-affirms by belief of the Palestine Israel conflict.

Thank you Ben and i look forward to more books in future.
