"Stephen Gowans' book is a concise and pertinent de-mythologizing
of Zionist propaganda, from early Zionists and founders, to the
fascist global right leadership at present ... a tantalizing
historical read, and a huge and valuable resource text, both."
--John Steppling, Counterpunch
"This book is a timely response to three groups: those yet to grasp that Israel in its current form is an outrage comparable to apartheid South Africa; those who recognise this truth but fail (as had many sincere opponents of apartheid) to see the bigger picture of a Faustian bargain with Western elites; those who say the USA is a vassal--a client state of Israel." --Philip Roddis, Steel City Scribblings UK
