Robin Shepherd, whose blog we link to on the right hand side, recently wrote the excellent book “A State beyond the Pale”. In it, he focuses particularly on the hysterical anti-Israel stance taken by many in Europe. The book is reviewed here
In addition to being a good read to aid those already committed to Israel’s defence, it is a useful book to lend to those who don’t know much and are sufficiently open minded to read something against the prevailing anti-Israel leftist line.
Shepherd leads with 8 fundamental points to understand the current Israel-Palestinian/Arab situation, where he provides a good background as to why Israel is being demonised. Shepherd is an Anglican.
Another review states that “In the author’s view, the Israel-Palestine conflict can be seen as a test case for the West’s ability to stand up for the values it claims as its own. In Europe, important institutions and individuals are now failing that test. This book explains why.”
Another recent book, Son of Hamas, as pointed out by correspondent, Ruth, provides an insight into Hamas and Islam- we provide a link to an interview with the author here.
