ISRAEL A DEMOCRACY FOR JEWS ONLY,
This review is from: Blood and Religion: The Unmasking of the Jewish and Democratic State (Paperback)
It is always a pleasure and a refreshing experience to read Jonathan Cook's eloquent and balanced articles,compared to the nauseating distortions and lies of the so called mainstream media coverage of what is going in the Middle East and on the never ending turmoil in the Holy Lands. What are glaringly missing are the working/living conditions and plight of the Palestinians confronting Israel's sadistic occupation with its high tech and deadly weaponry supplied with US taxpayers money.
In this book Nazareth based Cook uncovers the myth about Israel's so called democracy for Jews only since non Jews are blatantly discriminated against in so many wicked ways particularly the Palestinians living under Israel's brutal occupation scores of whom are regularly killed, their civilian infrastructure and their livelihoods destroyed and their elected representatives arbitrarily arrested with no recourse to any democratic civilian justice system.
The truly civilized world needs more talented and principled writers like Jonathan Cook who promote dialogue and peace and who are not afraid of speaking truth to power and taking considerable risks to uphold the rule of law and condemn Israel's relentless human rights abuses and war crimes against entire non Jewish populations in the Occupied Territories.
Blood and Religion is a breath of fresh air in the midst of nauseating pro-Israeli narrative in media coverage of Israel and Palestine and is recommended for reading by anyone interested in understanding the root problem at the heart of the Israeli Palestinian conflict: an illegal and brutal occupation.
