  • Summary:

    The history of the Middle East goes back about 12,000 years, most of which was not marked by fighting between Arabs and Jews. Documenting the Middle East from ancient times to present, Arabs & Israel for Beginners is one of few books cover the issues of both Jews and Arabs objectively, insightfully and in an easy-to-read style.

    Some of the provocative issues and topics that the book covers are the birth of ‘Western’ civilization in the Middle East and Africa; the truth about ancient Israel from birth to destruction; the building of the ‘Walled’ city of Jericho; the origin of Christianity; the real story of modern Israel’s birth; Jewish history beginning with Abraham [c.2000 BC] & Moses [c. 1350 BC]; documented facts on the Arab-Israeli wars; the lowdown on the PLO, Intifada, US Money; Desert Storm and Terrorism; and the September 1993 PLO/Israel peace talks.

    In the tradition characteristic of the ‘Beginners Series’, Arabs & Israel for Beginners is written for two vastly different types of readers; those who are new to the Arab-Israel discussion and those submersed in it and perhaps confused by facts that just don’t seem to add up.
