Difficult to think of a better guide to understanding the complexity of Israel,

I have long felt the need to be more objectively critical of Israel's governance and found Ari Shavit's
guidance and explanation invaluable. Ari's coverage of the contemporary birth of the Israeli state is both accurate and compassionate.It lays an excellent understanding for helping people to make a better assessment of how to be critical of current Israeli government behaviour and policy whilst respecting the sacrifices made by thousands of Jewish people to build a just society which can give them a sense of security they have been long denied and mercilessly persecuted for.
Essential reading for non Jewish people and it would help if more bigotted members of the Jewish community read it too.
