  • How did the Middle East mess begin in the first place?
  • Do the Arabs really want peace?
  • Is Israel as oppressive as the media portrays it?
  • Why is Israel so important to Jews anyway?
... then this book is exactly what you want.

With this book, award-winning author Shimon Apisdorf turns his sights and insights to the Jewish homeland. For over three millennia, Israel has been the focal point of Jews everywhere, and for the past century it has been on the center stage of world history. This book clearly explains why Israel is so central to Judaism, how the modern State of Israel arose, the key trends and events in the Arab-Israeli conflict, and why Israel has fought so many wars and found peace to be so elusive.
