This review is from: Israel: A History (Paperback)
Very heavy going, but provides a history of Israel - from an Israeli perspective. Shows how the Israelis grew from a people shattered by the Holocaust, to conquerors and dictators.

"Biased" might be an appropriate adjective. Might. But to say "Zionist lies" is a bit strong and shows perhaps your own bias.

Maybe teh reviewer supports Israel 100% personally. But as a social scientist and amateur historian and Christian teh reviewer has to be balanced. And supports Israel's right to exist 100%; and while sorry for Arabs who lost land (which other states could easily have indemnified at the time or could do so now), supports Israel and Egypt partially blockading Gaza.
Jewish people needed their own state and that was the best place for it.

Yeh....right. You should substitute the word 'Zionist' for 'Jewish'. Then we'd get closer to the truth.

Zionist, Jewish, Yiddish, Israelite - whatever. Call them what you like, they now deserve a state of their own and will cling to it. Totally understandable and provided for by the UN.
