It is said that the truth often hurts and that there are none so blind as those that do not wish to see. Both statements apply to the majority of the anti-Israel brigade: the bigots
of the left and the anti-semites of Europe, many countries of which have long and violent histories of anti-semitism.
This book redresses the lies and widespread propaganda of these groups by a thorough research into the facts, historical and contemporary, and clearly shows
that the propaganda is based on political motives, with history revised to accommodate the required new "facts".
The book is written in a concise and easily read format, which makes it a joy to read. I honestly doubt whether it will influence the majority of the bigots, etc,
but if it opens the eyes of the "don't knows" to the truth then it will have done its job.
Historical revisionism of the worst kind has been so successful that at the United Nations, the world media and university campuses around the globe, Israel under genocidal attack since it's birth has been presented as a "Colonial oppressor", an "Apartheid State", "Racist" , "Fascist" and "Imperialist".
Israel, living in the shadow of the Holocaust have in a bizarre and sick twist of rhetoric and propaganda even been frequently branded as "Nazis".
The author "Arab propaganda under Communist tutelage transmuted the unacceptable anti-Semitism into justifiable anti-Zionism, and turned an odious Jew-hatred into a politically correct Israel-hatred".
Meir-Levi describes the machinations of of the Mufti Haj Amin Al Husseini, his instigation of and planning of the 1920, 1921, 1929 and 1936-1939 pogroms in which hundreds of Jews were butchered by Arab terrorists.
The author points out the extensive use of swastikas, portraits of Hitler and Nazi imagery during the 1936-1939 "Great Arab Revolt" of 1936-1939.
He traces Al Husseini's close collaboration with Hitler and Eichmann. Al Husseini was one of the originators of the systematic destruction of European Jewry and was a close associate, confidante and advisor to Eichmann. He organized the Bosnian Muslim SS Hanjar divisions that annihilated 90% of Bosnian Jews and persuaded the Axis powers to prevent any Jews leaving Romania, Hungary, and Bulgaria diverting hundreds of thousands of Jews to the death camps. Eichmann recounted "We have promised him (the mufti) that no European Jew would enter Palestine anymore."
A more detailed account of the history of the Mufti and Hitler can be found in The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism: Adolf Hitler and Haj Amin al-Husseini.
During the 1961 Eichmann trial in Jerusalem, Hannah Arendt commented on the astounding degree of anti-Jewish venom and praise for Hitler in the Arab press together with regret that he "did not finish the job".
40 years later the state-controlled Egyptian daily Al Akhbar (April 18, 2001) declared "Our thanks to the late Hitler who wrought, in advance, the vengeance of the Palestinians upon the most despicable villains on the face of the earth. However we rebuke Hitler for the fact that the vengeance was insufficient".
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said of the Jews after the 2006 Lebanon War "If they gather in Israel it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide" and former Iranian President Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani thundering his aims of a second holocaust and final solution declared "The use of nuclear bomb in Israel will leave nothing on the ground, whereas it will only damage the world of Islam."
The author describes how the PLO was a brainchild of the KGB working with Nasser, how the Vietnamese Communists and Romanian dictator Ceausescu persuaded Arafat to repackage his propaganda so that the Arab onslaught against Israel would be transformed in the world imagination as an anti-colonial struggle by the "oppressed Palestinians".
He outlines the support given by the Communist bloc to the Palestinian terror networks such as the PLO and PFLP, and the Arab campaign to drown Israel in blood.
The author carefully debunks the Arab hoax that "the Zionists stole our land", and reminds us how many times the Palestinians turned down the opportunity of obtaining a Palestinian State alongside Israel, as they were determined to destroy Israel and replace her with a Judenreihn "Palestine from the river to the sea".
In this they have been diabolically supported by the International Left.
Meir-Levi also outlines the truth about the much maligned security fence which has saved tens of thousands of Israeli lives and been dubbed by Israel's enemies as 'The Apartheid Wall".
Clearly the opponents of the barrier believe that Israeli lives are far less important than Palestinian inconvenience.
They also ignore the fact that many other countries have security barriers, some far more formidable than Israel's provisional fence.
The book traces how the evacuation by Israel of ten thousand Jews from Gaza and the handing over of Gaza over to full Palestinian control led to a renewed war by the Arabs of Gaza against Israel's people sending thousands of rockets into Israel with the aim of killing and maiming Israeli men, women and children.
Over 1800 Israelis (mainly women and children) have been killed since Arafat launched a war of terror against Israel's people in 2000, and thousands more maimed and injured.
The author finally points out that the incitement to genocide by the likes of Hezbollah's Nasrallah and Iran's Ahamdinejad may strip away the illusions of a struggle for Palestinian "liberation" and "national aspirations" and re-situate the Arab/Islamic Jihad against Israel with it's true roots- that of the Nazis and the Muslim Brotherhood.
If university departments had any interest in a true representation of the history and facts of the conflict, this would be a prescribed book, but unfortunately on most universities the aim is the opposite- venomous propaganda.
