"This is not the first excellent book on the Middle East conflict.
But when listeners to my radio show ask me for one book to read in
order to understand the Middle East conflict and Israel's history,
this is the book I will recommend. Very few people combine the
knowledge, the insight, and the ability to write clearly--for both
novice and academic--as does David Brog. I believe that if just a
small percentage of Western university students and of the world's
Muslims read this book, Israel-hatred will begin to abate, and
peace in the Middle East will nally be possible. That is how good

"One of the greatest threats to Israel today is the spread of a false narrative claiming that Israel is an oppressor, an occupier, and the obstacle to peace. These lies are dangerous--they inspire terrorists to murder and doom the prospects of peace. David Brog's important new book, Reclaiming Israel's History, tells Israel;s story in a way that dissects and destroys these lies. Anyone interested in defending Israel must read this book."
--PASTOR JOHN HAGEE, founder and chairman, Christians United for Israel
"David Brog is a friend of mine and of Israel, because he is a friend of the truth. He does his homework and lets the chips fall where they may. He's written a history of the State of Israel that tells Israel's inspirational story while thoroughly debunking the most widespread anti-Israel myths. If you are a friend of the truth as well, Reclaiming Israel's History is required reading to effectively defend and stand with Israel. The truth shall set you free."
