"Shocking! But a very important book for America especially in light of the War on Terrorism!" Why I Hate Israel: A Candid Account is a fresh look at the Jewish-Arabic Conflict in light of current trends in human rights laws and ethics. Priya Gandhi-Ganesh is particularly insightful in identifying troubling elements that are impediments to peace and human progress in the Middle East and on the global scene. Gandhi-Ganesh effortlessly draws together examples and anecdotes to highlight her points. At the end of the book, the listener will most likely find herself empathizing with Gandhi-Ganesh's sentiments. Even if the listener does not, she will certainly feel more enlightened about the realities of the Jewish-Arabic Conflict in today's Post-September 11th World. Perhaps, the most refreshing aspect of this book is the explicitly stated position that the author hates Israel.
Gandhi-Ganesh argues from Hinduism, Christianity, International Human Rights, and ethics why her hatred is justified and even encouraged. This book is certainly among the most important books on the Middle East to come out of the new century. Those with a general interest in terrorism and Middle East conflicts will find this book helpful. High schools and colleges can use this book for discussions on ethics, the current situation/events, politics, international relations, and America's place in the world. Thus, this book is excellent for general reading as well as in educational/school settings.
