OVER DIT BOEK:
You’ve heard the many slogans of Palestinian propaganda. They sound something like: “Palestinian terror is a logical result of the occupation,” “Israel was established because of Western guilt over the Holocaust,” or, “The settlements make peace impossible.” If you’ve felt that these were misplaced but couldn’t articulate the reason why, then this book is for you. This book gives you the answers. It blows away the haze of Palestinian propaganda with real, verifiable facts.
The chapters are sorted alphabetically by topic so that the book can be used as a reference guide.
These 150 nonsensical, recurring accusations against Israel show how deep-rooted is the hatred against her.
“The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie – deliberate, contrived and dishonest – but the myth – persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the clichés of our forebears.
We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.”
– John F. Kennedy
“Placing 150 of these common myths and misperceptions in one book is a credit to the creators, as the intertwining of these tales highlights the root of the hatred towards Israel (and Jews) that is widely distributed over the Internet and repeated again and again.”
– CIDI (Dutch “AIPAC”)
“This easily navigated book provides a necessary counterbalance to all kinds of factually inaccurate and inconsistent framings on the Internet, new media and “quality papers” that are culturally
accepted as truths.”
– SGP Christian Scientific Institute
“Hatred and demonization are obstacles in the road to peace, and this falsification of history is the ugliest weapon in the struggle against Israel. Now, with this book, you have an effective antidote.”
– Christians for Israel in the Netherlands (largest non-Jewish pro-Israel organization in the world)
“The thorough investigations of the 150 most heard accusations directed at Israel prove that these allegations are often untrue and often quite distorted.”
– Joods Actueel (the largest Jewish magazine in Belgium)
“This is the wonderful book I’ve been waiting for. Not only is it exquisitely written, but it is extremely necessary in society now.”
– Professor Dr. Hans Jansen, Simon Wiesenthal Institute, Brussels
