The Three Simple Questions on the State of Israel


  1. Have any of you read the following books (on the Arab Israeli conflict and related issues) or any of them, and if so, evaluation?

    Blood Brothers, by Elias Chacour

    Whose Promised Land? Colin Chapman

    Who Owns the Land? Stanley Ellisen (former Professor at Dallas and Western Seminary, now deceased.)

    Myths and Facts: A Guide to the Arab-Israeli Conflict, by Mitchell Bard

    From Time Immemorial, by Joan Peters

    The Israel of God, O. Palmer Robertson

  2. Hi, Ken.

    It's important to distinguish the theological issues from the geopolitical issues.

  3. I'm familiar with and have read a lot of but not all of Myths and Facts. As I recall, it's based on or even directly incorporates material from the Jewish Virtual Library. Last I checked the Jewish Virtual Library offered all of its material for free online.

  4. It looks like the book is available in its entirety here.
