5.0 out of 5 stars Jonathan Cook shows marvellous insight and understanding, 9 Jun 2012
This review is from: Disappearing Palestine: Israel's Experiments in Human Despair (Paperback)
Jonathan Cook is a British journalist, who lives and works in Nazareth since many years. His wife is Palestinian. These two facts go a long way to explain the marvellous insight Cook has in the workings of the State of Israel, its interaction with the indigenous Palestinian population and in Zionism's true goals. Western correspondents come and go, but Jonathan remains. I can think of no other Western journalist, who has such depth of understanding, especially of the situation of Israel's Palestinian population, those Palestinians who were not expelled in the 1948 war, during which the State of Israel was founded.
Jonathan's first book "Blood and Religion. The Unmasking of the Jewish and Democratic State" (Pluto Press 2006), and the present volume "Disappearing Palestine. Israel's Experiments in Human Despair" dissect in the greatest detail Israel and how it treats its Palestinian population and the Palestinians living under occupation in the Westbank, East-Jerusalem, Gaza Strip and Golan Heights.
"Disappearing Palestine" bundles together a number of articles Jonathan Cook has published over the years in various newspapers, weekly magazines and online media.
This impressive book is further reinforced by its easy readability.
I can recommend no better book for those who want to get a better insight in what the impact is of Israel and the zionist ideology on the daily life of the Palestinians in Israel and the Occupied Territories.
This book was published in 2008, but I have just re-read it in June 2012 and I am all the more impressed, because so much of what Jonathan Cook predicted, has come to pass.
