Every day in Israel, memorials are being held for the victims of Islamic fundamentalism. Since the “Second Intifada” began ten years ago, Palestinian terrorists have claimed 1,700 Israeli civilians. This equates to a staggering 70,000 victims, when adjusted to the United States population for scale.

In A New Shoah, Italian journalist Giulio Meotti’s extensive interviews wit

This invaluable, informative and harrowing digest tells the story little told before, about the victims of the terror war against Israel and her people.
It shows you what a prejudiced media will not dare to let you see, because their agenda is to prepare the world for genocide of the Jews of Israel, through a monstrous propaganda machine, never seen since Goebbels and Der Sterner paved the way for the holocaust.

Mr. Meotti presents us with facts and descriptions that are generally ignored by the US media.

This is truly a fine book. "A New Shoah" serves a very unique (and tragically vital) purpose; it serves to catalogue the individual stories of some of the victims of the new Jewish holocaust: the victims of Islamist terrorism in the state of Israel. It would be easy for these victims to slide out of recent memory and headlines as the years pass and we are further inured to the frequent violence of these attacks, which makes what Giulio Meotti has done that much more important.

"A New Shoah" is b

A heartbreaking work told with love and care, this book could easily have meandered into polemic; instead, we are faced with the harsh truths of daily Israeli life. Meotti introduces the reader to a terrifying reality, one which becomes all the more agonizing when we realize that it comes so close behind the great horrors of the twentieth century. Putting names to numbers--the numbers of faceless statistics--while carefully invoking the specter of numbers tattooed to arms and chest in concentrat ...more

This was a very had to read book but it was really awesome that the stories of so many of the victims are being told. I think this would be a good book for Christians to read so they would understand, really understand that Jewish people are going through. I came away with a sense of sadness and wanting to help in any way I could.

I thought this book would be more of a historical survey of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It isn't. It is a collection of the stories of the many victims of terrorism in Israel. I initially wanted it to be more - an explanation, a background, a context - but I realized it was intended to be not much more than what it is on its face. First, because the author is an Italian journalist who is writing to an anti-Semitic European audience, but second, because not all things have an explanation.

When I heard an Italian, gentile journalist wrote a compendium memorializing Israel's victims of terror, my first thought was, how could I not read this book?

Yes, the book's organization is poor. Yes, the translation from Italian to English has "rough around the edges" prose. Yes, I was yearning for more personal interviews and less information gleaned from newspapers, which I had already read.

Despite that, Meotti, a true friend of Israel, shines light on a subject that is so taboo in the main

Imprescindibile la sua lettura per il valore della testimonianza e per ritenere la memoria delle tante, troppe morti assurde.
Imprescindibile la sua lettura per conoscere la voce, le ragioni di una componente importante, in quello che si definisce il conflitto ebreo-israelo-palestinese.
Imprescindibile la sua lettura per chi vuole sapere, capire, conoscere, e avere così maggiori informazioni per forgiarsi un'opinione.
E da ultimo ma non meno importante é uno strumento per conoscere meglio la stori
