Alan Hart's remarkable new book, ZIONISM: THE REAL ENEMY OF THE JEWS gives an unparalleled insight into the unchecked rise of Zionist power and the inevitable consequences for all - the Jews of the world as well Moslems and Gentiles - if this power is not now checked. The consequence Alan foresees is a Clash of Civilisations, Judeo-Christian v Islamic, with, along the way, the unleashing of the twin monsters of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia. And one of the many questions he asks and answers is - How can these monsters be stopped from going on the rampage?
As a correspondent for ITN's News At Ten and the BBC's Panorama programme, Alan covered what used to be called the Arab-Israeli conflict from both sides. And from his one-to-one private conversations with such leaders as Golda Meir, Mother Israel, and Yasser Arafat, Father Palestine, he was able to distinguish between what they really believed and feared as opposed to what they said in public for propaganda and myth-sustaining purposes.
Alan himself is aware that most people of all faiths and none are frightened to criticise the Zionist state of Israel out of fear of being accused of anti-Semitism. But his whole book is the evidence of why it is perfectly possible to be passionately anti-Zionist without being in any way, shape or form anti-Semitic. Alan says: "The charge of anti-Semitism is a blackmail card Zionism plays to silence critics of Israel's arrogance of power and to suppress informed and honest debate. If there is to be informed and honest debate about who must do what and why for peace, peoples of all faiths and none must overcome the fear of being falsely and maliciously accused of being anti-Semitic."
