5.0 out of 5 stars Painful reading., 29 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Open Secrets: Israeli Foreign and Nuclear Policies: Expansionism and Israeli Foreign Policy (Film/Fiction; 2) (Paperback)
This makes painful but crucial reading for all interested in understanding Israeli security concerns and religious ideology that has contributed to a State that is at once both defensive and offensive in nature. He airs painful little known Israeli Policies- in the 80's the Israelis had hoped to transfer Palestinians with Saddams cooperation to occupy Irans Oil rich province of Khuzestan, after an Iraqi victory.
There is a detailed account of the Agenda of right leaning Radicals who feel historically cheated by Churchills failure to honour the integration a substantial portion of Jordan into the fledgling state of Israel. Therefore from the outset we can understand an Israeli perspective which is genuinely aggrieved historically, as much as it may be the aggressor in other issues. The disturbing features of Rightist Policies are clearly expansionist. A state is envisaged that would ultimately extend from the Suez Canal all the way to Baghdad- a Historically Jewish City by the Rightists reckonings. This is an important and overlooked book that exposes much of what Arabs already know about Israel, that there is an expansionist core element that do seek far greater territory than the Dovish elements of Israeli society will condone. It is a book that should actually assist in problem solving, since it makes clear that in Israel too there are Religious extremists, as there are in the Islamic world and Christian one, but that there are genuinely moderate and liberal viewpoints to moderate and push through effective peace building in the Middle East.
This book has never been so timely as the issue of WMD again is coming to the top of the international Political agenda. Israels place in this is central, as are their security concerns, as are that of the rest of the Middle Easts, and this books spells out very explicitly why the Arab and Persian world still has much to fear from a Nuclear Israel despite the focus being on the obverse.

Nothing surprising though. Its the irony of Christian right wingers support for Israel that they so despise Christianity!
