Book Description

Sep 1999
Stav, Director of the Ariel Center for Policy Research, uses an analysis of caricatures, past and present, to examine the idea that the Arab nations and peoples of the Middle East have in recent years undergone a transformation making them less hostile to Israel and the Jews. This book contends, however, that although Israel has made numerous concessions on behalf of peace, Arab hostility continues, and that this hostility is particularly obvious in the caricatures of the Arabic state-owned and operated press. Covering a history of anti-Semitic caricature from the Middle Ages to the present, emphasizing particularly those of Nazi Germany and modern Arab nations, this book explores the ways in which caricature has justified violence and demonized the entire Jewish people.

By M. D Roberts VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
Arieh Stav presents here an extremely disturbing, moving, horrific insight into the indoctrination of hatred towards the Jews so prevalent in official Arab nations. It is a real stain on humanity that so little has changed behind the scenes since the days of the Holocaust.
Drawing on countless official, published sources, we are presented here with a shocking study of the virulent anti-Semitic doctrine hidden behind official Arab Government policies and one is left to wonder what real chance there is for any peace settlement in the Middle East.
It is clear from the sources here that whilst portraying to the West the acceptable face of pursuing peace with the Jewish state, the official state controlled media of most if not all the Arab world reveals a completely different agenda.
This study reveals how the official portrayal of the entire Jewish people, not only their political leadership, is subjected to a deep-rooted theological, moral, racial and political negation. It's very nature is shown by Arieh Stav from official sources to be parallel to that of the German/Nazi era. See it for yourself. It unbelievably presents the individual Jew and the race as a whole as an object of hatred, vilification and physical extermination.
I was stunned to see the images portrayed here. I knew the Islamic and Arab hatred of the Jews to be considerable, but I never knew it was as bad as this.
This book can only be recommended in the highest manner, if for nothing more than to open the eyes of the international community to what is going on behind the scenes in the Middle East and to show ultimately what the Jewish state is up against. I am not Jewish and it frightens me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arab perception of Israel and Jews 1 Sep 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The book is a compilation of graphic Arab declarations of war against Israel and Jews everywhere. It is an insightful and sobering look into the Arab psyche. It also shows how the state-controlled Arab press harkens back to Nazi defamation of all things jewish.

5.0 out of 5 stars MIXED MESSAGES! 14 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
"Peace: The Arabian Caricature, is a shocking message to those of us who truly wish for peace in the Middle East. On the one hand, the Arabs talk peace, on the other hand, their newspapers are filled with disturbing images of Jews and the State of Israel. It makes one wonder where we're really headed. This book is very enlightening!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Where is our courage to see? 31 Aug 2007
By Alyssa A. Lappen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
If everyone had seen this book, who'd ever sat at a "negotiating" table, trying to effect a "land for peace" deal between the Arabs and Israel, it is very possible, and even likely that those "negotiations" would have been halted before they began--recognized from the onset as an Arab ruse, in an effort to annihilate the Jewish people.

In this volume, Arieh Stav presents offers a graphic collection of the anti-Jewish hatred rife within the mainstream Arab press. You read correctly: that's government controlled newspapers in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Libya, and so on....

These cartoons, such as they are, mimic the quality of Nazi anti-Semitism, so virulent as to embed a genocidal intent, no a genocidal hope, within the general populace.

What is perhaps most remarkable about these graphics, in fact, is that the people at the "negotiating tables" throughout the past 30 years have not been aware of them--and that the mainstream press has willfully chosen to ignore their existence, preferring as a matter of course to blame all the Middle East's ills on the Jewish people and Israel, than to recognize the real root of the problem--ancient Islamic anti-Semitism, predating, and more virulent, than even that of Europe.

It is indeed frightening, so much so that it takes courage to look, and speak or write the truth about the intensity of this ingrained cultural and Islamic religious hatred.

5.0 out of 5 stars Horrifying truth about Arab mass media vicious Anti- Semitism 15 May 2006
By Shalom Freedman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
As Stav makes claim in the text of this volume Arab caricature is different than other caricature. It does not pick out an individual but rather it aims to demonize and call for the destruction of a whole people. It is also unique in that it spreads across twenty- one countries. In fact I am afraid today if Stav wished to put out a 'companion volume' he would find much in most of the fifty- five Islamic nations of the world along the same lines.

This is truly frightening. A whole culture is devoted to ridiculing , dehumanizing demonizing and destroying a people.
