An explosive exposé into the radical right-wing state of Israeli politics from bestselling author of Republican Gomorrah.

Publishers Weekly Review

Sep 16, 2013 – In his latest book, journalist Blumenthal (Republican Gomorrah) takes the Israelis to task for their racist and proto-fascist tendencies. He begins by critiquing the "herd of clueless American reporters and columnists who into Jerusalem and Tel Aviv each week." The charges of a "rising climate of repression" portending a "frightening authoritarian future" are amply substantiated, and inevitably, much of the book is deeply depressing. Blumenthal takes a hard if extreme look at the social structure. Palestinian citizens of Israel who take work as security guards in coffee shops are described as having given in to "sustained pressure to participate in the Jewish state's security sector," while the Zionist left is "well-educated Ashkenazi teens insert themselves into frontline combat units to civilize their less cultivated, lower-class peers from Mizrahi and Russian backgrounds." Blumenthal's Israel is represented by its basest instincts, a blunt look at a country where citizens are clearly divived into the "haves" and the "have nots".

Customer Reviews

Excellent book

Up there with "Beyond Chutzpah" and "The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine" in terms of shining light where Israel's often racist apologists don't want it shined. No country is perfect, but Israel's racism and apartheid colonialism (and its nukes and spying) get a pass because, well, you can't criticize Jews or Judaism because it is 'hate' to challenge the well crafted image of Israel and Jews as Eternal Sacred Victim.

Well, it is their wildly disproportionate power and privilege that has made it at all controversial to say what should be obvious: Israel is a colonial, apartheid, nuclear rogue state which is ruled by supremacist madmen.
