5.0 out of 5 stars No Democracy in the Middle East
The late Jewish author, Israel Shahak, explains in great detail the interconnections between U.S. and Israeli policies in both the middle east and Latin America and how these policies affect both countries and the world.

1.0 out of 5 stars A disingenuous appeal to antinuclear sentiments

5.0 out of 5 stars No Democracy in the Middle East, Feb. 13 2003
The late Jewish author, Israel Shahak, explains in great detail the interconnections between U.S. and Israeli policies in both the middle east and Latin America and how these policies affect both countries and the world.
Consider the current situation with North Korea, Iraq, and Afghanistan... this book is prophetic. This book details why China and North Korea will talk to Israel when negotiating indirectly witht he United States. If ever there was a time to understand the web of communications between countries such as North Korea, Syria, China, Israel, Columbia and others, now is it. I read this book over a year ago, and now come back to write a review because of its renewed importance in light of recent developments (2003).
Read about Saddam Hussein's failed attempt to make peace with Israel, and more! Long before 9-11, this book WARNS its readers of the serious terrorist threat that would come out of Afghanistan! Prophetic. A book that details information with such accuracy, makes predictions that come to realization, is certainly a book worthy of information-hungry men and women the world over.
Going back and re-reading this book is like a visit with Nostradamus. I HIGHLY recommend this book as it will provide you with a strong understanding of what's behind U.S. moves on Iraq, relative silence towards North Korea and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Devastating glimpse of apocalypse soon., Sept. 3 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Open Secrets: Israeli Foreign and Nuclear Policies (Paperback)
To call this book an expose would be silly. Everybody knows that Israel has a (secret) stockpile of THE ultimate weapons of mass-destruction. The reasons for the reluctance of public figures to avoid this universally known truth would fill libraries, no doubt. What this book brings into focus is the frightening reality that many players in the Israeli establishment, military and otherwise, see the use of such weapons as an inevitable response to any military setback which might under other circumstances necessitate a soul-searching peace-seeking negotiation with a military counterpart. How near such a response has been is a disgraceful indictment of all things American Pie. Don't read this book if you treasure your Reader's Digest/CNN/Disneyworld kindergarten version of the heroic struggle for Israel. More of us must listen to the few truly heroic voices - like Shahak's - before the removal of this Millenium colonial tyranny becomes even more difficult. Shame and forgiveness. Peace and unity. May the peace and tranquility of God descend upon us all. Amen.

1.0 out of 5 stars A disingenuous appeal to antinuclear sentiments, April 29 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Open Secrets: Israeli Foreign and Nuclear Policies (Paperback)
The title contains the flashy words "nuclear policy" and "secrets", but fails to address the subject of Israeli nuclear policy, or even the broader issue of weapons of mass destruction at the hands of Israel or any of its neighbors. Though the title indicates that the reader will learn what was not known before on Israel's nuclear weapons, the fundamental questions on Israel's nuclear armament are not treated at all. Instead, the sensational title is misused to promote a particular view of the Arab Israeli conflict. A book such as this one could harm serious antinuclear activism, as it may make it appear politically motivated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another interesting read, May 3 2003

A wonderful book, but without an extensive backround in the subject it is difficult to judge its accuracy. Good to have at hand when listening to the latest dispatches from the Middle East. Guaranteed to earn you concerned glances from your friends when they spot it on your bookshelf!
