"The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie - deliberate, contrived and dishonest - but the myth - persistent, persuasive and repeated." President John F. Kennedy
A revised version of the classic guide to the Arab-Israeli conflict, first published in the 1960s and updated in 2006. Told with the aid of extensive maps and charts, Myths and Facts pulls no punches when it comes to addressing Israel's responsibility for events and policies that tarnish its image.
But the book also argues persuasively that no-one in the Middle East craves peace more desperately than the Israelis, who have lived through seven wars and an ongoing campaign of terror for over six decades.
"Facts are stubborn things," observed John Adams, "and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence." Myths and Facts seeks to lay out the stubborn facts about the Arab-Israeli conflict. They are the best weapons we have to insure that truth triumphs over myth.
