Back Cover

Alan Hart with King Faisal (l) and Yassr Arafat (r)

This is the second volume in the series, ZIONISM: The Real Enemy of the Jews, a monumental history of Zionism and the Israel-Palestine conflict by a seasoned reporter who interviewed and was in the good graces of the major players on all sides. Alan Hart has given an honest expression of the needs, motives and dilemmas faced by all parties.

David Becomes Goliath reveals in well-documented detail starting from 1948 how the assertion that Israel has lived in constant danger of annihilation, of the “driving into the sea” of its Jews, is little more than Zionist propaganda. What really was the case, after Israel unilaterally declared itself to be in existence, was that the Arab armies did not have the ability—neither the numbers nor the weapons—to defeat Israel’s forces. Despite some stupid Arab rhetoric to the contrary—a propaganda gift for Zionism of which it has made extensive and ongoing use—the Arab regimes had no intention of even trying to destroy Israel.

“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.”

SYNOPSIS

This is the second volume in the series, ZIONISM: The Real Enemy of the Jews, a monumental history of Zionism and the Israel-Palestine conflict by a seasoned reporter who interviewed and was in the good graces of the major players on all sides. Alan Hart has given an honest expression of the needs, motives and dilemmas faced by all parties.

David Becomes Goliath reveals in well-documented detail starting from 1948 how the assertion that Israel has lived in constant danger of annihilation, of the “driving into the sea” of its Jews, is little more than Zionist propaganda. What really was the case, after Israel unilaterally declared itself to be in existence, was that the Arab armies did not have the ability—neither the numbers nor the weapons—to defeat Israel’s forces. Despite some stupid Arab rhetoric to the contrary—a propaganda gift for Zionism of which it has made extensive and ongoing use—the Arab regimes had no intention of even trying to destroy Israel. They were quickly at one with Zionism and the major powers in wanting the Palestine file to remain closed after Israel’s first victory on the battlefield. There was not supposed to have been a regeneration of Palestinian nationalism: for them, Arafat’s real crime was making this happen.

Here, too, is the riveting story of how Zionism, assisted by deluded British Prime Minister Eden and America’s hawks, conned the Western world into believing that Eygpt’s President Nasser was an enemy of the West when actually he was seeking an accommodation with Israel from almost his first days in power, and wanted more than anything else a relationship with America on equal terms with that of Israel. Hart also takes us inside the struggle of the first and last American president, Eisenhower, to attempt to contain Zionism, and President Kennedy’s unsuccessful attempt to prevent the Zionist state acquiring an atom bomb (an acquisition still unadmitted by either the US or Israel, to this very day).

But most importantly, Volume II records a turning point: the story of the defeat of reason in Israel, with Ben-Gurion’s replacement of Israel’s second Prime Minister, Moshe Sharett, who in October 12, 1955 expressed in his diary this prescient fear for the future in view of the ongoing Zionist expansionism of his time: “What is our vision on this earth—war to the end of generations and life by the sword?”

6 reviews for ZIONISM THE REAL ENEMY OF THE JEWS Volume II David Becomes Goliath

  1. RABBI AHRON COHEN

    “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

  2. SAMIRA QURAISHY, researcher, Islamic Human Rights Commission

    “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

  3. MARK BRUZONSKY

    “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..”
    – MARK BRUZONSKY, MiddleEast.org, founder
    World Jewish Congress, first Washington Representative

  4. CLARE SHORT, MP-UK

    “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.”

    government until her resignation over Iraq

  5. ILAN PAPPE

    “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.”
    ¬ ILAN PAPPE
    Leading Israeli revisionist historican, author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine

  6. Journal of Palestine Studies

    “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
