A collective effort by a small group of Arab and Jewish citizens of Israel to penetrate the dense net of illusion and myth that dominates the thinking and feeling of most Israelis and, at the same time, determines the prevailing image of Israel in the Western world. According to the Zionist fairy tale, the state of Israel is an outpost of democracy, social justice, and enlightenment, and a homeland and haven for the persecuted Jews of the world. The reality, as this book demonstrates, is utterly different.
