This is Not the Way: Jews, Judaism and the State of Israel
This is Not the Way: Jews, Judaism and the State of Israel
Price: £10.00

1.0 out of 5 stars This book is not the way!, 19 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a keen (Non Jewish) student of history, I am reminded of the anti-Zionist arguments made against Herzl in 1895, largely by those who were, or at least felt secure in the increasingly democratic nations. For those, particularly the more affluent it seems largely hypocritical to condemn those who were experiencing actual or threatened aggression in the countries where they lived. Israel offered a better safety refuge for many and only when (or if) acceptance by the world of rights for Jews becomes universal, is it likely that more Jews might choose to live in many other countries. Criticism of the security wall in Jerusalem seems inappropriate if those doing so do not live under threat of daily attacks as had been the case before the wall was built. Those who criticise Zionism should reflect on why it's time had arrived in 1895, and why it subsequently grew and resulted in the creation of the state of Israel. Those from the cultures that promoted anti-Semitism over centuries should ask themselves where their ancestors were when Jewish people were vulnerable.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent expose of rampant anti semitism in the 21st century., 11 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The author says what many others should (academics in particular) but are either frightened or simply anti Semitic .

Unless this evil is faced down we will all be victims of evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for anyone seriously interested in supporting democracy., 26 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Books like this are always a welcome contribution to countering the sloppy journalism which is all too often the norm when it comes to explaining Israel's place in the world.

The only way to challenge those who 'excuse' or ignore the horrors of unpleasant so called liberal movements and terrorist forces is to publish books like this.

Once democracy is lost, you can't vote evil out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A terrific story, 26 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If this were a novel it would be an exciting thriller which is fast moving and thoroughly entertaining. The debate between two great political individuals is one I recommend to anyone who is interested in individualism, revolution and moderate alternatives.

Zionism, 1862-1897: Foundations of a Movement
Price: £2.16

3.0 out of 5 stars Each reasonable introduction to Zionism, 26 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you already have a basic and balanced understanding of Zionism then this book isn't for you. However, as a general starter it's as godd as several other publications that are around.

5.0 out of 5 stars how we invented freedom and why it matters, 28 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A long overdue declaration of the extent to which England has shaped the values which we hold so dear but often take for granted. England should apologise less and remind others of the legacy it has been given and should cherish.
As Churchill said, more or less "democracy is the worst for m of government, except for all the others"
Once freedom has gone, it rarely comes back peacefully.

5.0 out of 5 stars politically incorrect guide to islam, 5 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent book which exposes the intolerant nature of this faith. Apologists for Islam should read this book and see if they can challenge its content. Western liberals refrain from challenging Islam because of fear. It's much easier to pretend to be freedom lovers when you are criticising western style democracies rather face up to the tyranny imposed by Islamic regimes.
