Author David Brog untangles the facts from the myths to reveal the truth about the Arab-Israeli conflict. In Reclaiming Israel's History you'll learn how the Jewish people have mainta

Dennis Prager was right about this book. It's offers clarity and depths to understand Israel's history from her roots, rights and the struggle for peace.
This book is for the truth seekers who want to understand Arab-Israeli conflicts. I highly recommend this book for those who identified themselves as Palestinian, the self-hating Jews and the international NGOs personnel, who so set to catch a Jew "sinning" against the Palestinians on daily basis. The international community including the UN, t

The next time you see an Academic sporting a Palestinian keffiyeh and bloviating at a BDS rally, I recommend you give this book to that person with this offer: "Underline every historical inaccuracy in this book and pencil in the correction, and I will donate a dollar to your BDS organization. Then return the book to me."

Your option of what to do with the book after it is returned to you. Be creative.

I would have appreciated some maps in the book.

It's hard to argue with the truth

If you're a history buff, and appreciate a fair and honest review of the Jewish homeland, this is the book for you. If you want to understand what Israel is up against, this is the book for you. If you love God and want to understand his prophesy being fulfilled in our lifetime, this is the book for you.

Very informative book about Israeli - Palestinian conflict. Surprisingly it wasn't too complicated to listen to. Would recommend to those that are interested in this subject.

Fascinating primer on how the Palestinian Arab identity came about; and how Arab refusal to allow Jewish immigration into Palestine before WWII forced Nazi Germany to resort to the Final Solution.

Recommends it for: everyone
Wow. This is one of the best nonfiction books I’ve ever read. He explains the Arab-Israeli conflict clearly with just the right amount of detail (only 200 pages). I couldn’t put this book down. Anyone who’s ever wondered what is going on in Israel (and why there isn’t a nation called Palestine) should read this book.

Brog points out facts that are twisted (or ignored, or lied about) by mainstream media and academia today:
--the Jewish people have maintained a continual presence in the Land of Isra

Excellent history

Thorough but engaging history of Israel’s struggle for existence against many foes and a profound disinterest in peace from the Palestinian side.

This pro-Israel perspective give quite a bit of backing to the legitimacy of Israel and the illegitimacy of the Palestinian cause. I appreciated the attempt to not pull punches on areas where Israel has been wrong, and I think it was very convincing to show the skewed global representation this conflict has been given.

Clear, concise, and reasoned. Brog succinctly refutes all the lies and propaganda with facts, stats, and quotes. A must-read!! From ancient times to 2014, he covers it all, and lays bare the truth.
