Blood and Religion: The Unmasking of the Jewish and Democratic State by Jonathan Cook
What was Israel hoping to achieve with its withdrawal from Gaza and construction of the West Bank wall? Jonathan Cook argues that the heart of the issue is demography; that Israel fears the moment when the Palestinians become a majority, making inevitable the comparisons to Apartheid. Cook charts Israel's increasingly desperate responses, including military repression, the law banning Palestinians who marry Israeli Arabs from living in Israel, and the redrawing of the Green Line for expansion. A timely and important read.
