"These three wide-ranging, highly readable,and extremely well-
informed volumes are a real gem that should be read by every
politically- and historically minded seeker of truth, justice, and
enduring peace in historical Palestine."
Journal of Palestine Studies (JPS 165), 2012
“In this extraordinary book, Alan Hart has succeeded in elucidating for us the
immediate and long term dangers involved in the unconditional Western support
for Zionism and its oppressive policies against the Palestinians. The author
provides us with a chilling exposure of how this embrace developed and
continues to endanger the Jewish existence and fuels the anti-Semitism that
refuses to disappear. Motivated by a genuine concern for peace in Israel and
Palestine and beyond in the world at large, Alan Hart has written not only a strong
indictment of Zionism, based on both research and personal experience, but also
provided us with a charter for a better future.”
Leading Israeli revisionist historican,
author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine
"I hope that all who are concerned about the troubles of the Middle East will read
this book. It is immensely readable and a magnificent piece of work which reflects
Alan Hart’s close relationship with Israeli and Palestinian leaders. We are in
terrible trouble in the Middle East. The book explains how we got here and how we
could move forward. The tragedy is hurting Palestinians, Israelis and the rest of
the world. All who wish to engage in finding a way forward will be helped by
reading this book."
CLARE SHORT, MP-UK and International Development Secretary in Tony Blair's
government until her resignation over Iraq
"Alan Hart's new books about Zionism and about the Israeli-Palestinian, Israeli-
Arab, and now the Israeli-Muslim conflicts are, taken together, remarkably
important and timely. His unique experiences and personal relationships make
it possible for him to connect, and maybe even more notably to correct, the
historical dots in a uniquely comprehensive way. Doing so as a seasoned
journalist as well as a passionate advocate of true peace and real justice makes
Hart's trilogy of books covering 1948 to the present nothing less than
extraordinary. Taken together they represent a monumental accomplishment of
epic proportions. If only responsible government officials around the world,
especially in Washington, would read and ponder these books, take profound
note of Hart's conclusions, and even at this very late date act before it is
completely too late."

Hart’s readable account of history, his obviously erudite analysis and his ability in
bringing the factual conflict to life on the page ensures the reader's interest is
unwavering throughout. His passion and empathy with both sides is apparent. For
the Jews, the ‘unspeakable fear’ of another Holocaust due to Zionist manipulation
and tyranny; and for the Arabs and Muslims, the anger and humiliation they are
feeling every day that Palestine is being torn apart.
Samira Quraishy, researcher, Islamic Human Rights Commission
"Alan Hart in his chillingly revealing and very readable account of the intrigues of
the Zionist political development has made a tremendously valuable contribution ."
RABBI AHRON COHEN
"Hart’s book is a good act, a brave act for someone from British state media. He
says he has to live with himself, and it is obvious this book comes from a place of
integrity. Volume One: The False Messiah augurs well for the rest of the series."
KIM PETERSEN, Dissident Voice
"These two volumes are a vital exposition of Zionist history and its interface with
diplomacy and the Israel-Arab conflict, up until the assassination of President
Kennedy. Alan Hart promises another volume, perhaps two, and one looks
forward to their publication.... an essential understanding of what happened in the
struggle for Israel-Palestine and of the role of Zionism in this sad story."
REUEL AMDUR, The Canadian Charger, January 27, 2010
"The scope is immense, but leavened by Hart's conversational writing style and
his years of personal experiences and insider observations. Even the most
obsessive readers on this topic will learn much in its pages. At a book promotion
gathering in a home in Brooklyn in June, Hart said he wrote with two goals in
mind: to contribute to justice for the Palestinians and to stop anti-Semitism. Hart
is in earnest about the latter..."
