It is a nation that elicits strong opinions and emotions across the globe. For a long time, Israel has been on the receiving end of anti-Semitic sentiments and actions. In Israel - Against All Odds, Christopher H.K. Persaud presents the journey of the Jewish people from centuries past to their position today. At every turn, the people of Israel have had to fight for survival as they faced multiple expulsion orders from numerous states in various continents. Then the inconceivable happened during the Holocaust. Still, the disheartening twist is that many people have little or no idea of what took place during this period. Worse still, some even deny the magnitude of the atrocious crimes carried out by Hitler and other perpetrators. What is even more shocking is that the world never learned from this experience and many anti-Semitic tactics have been backed by world leaders in the recent past.
There are many questions that Christopher H.K. Persaud answers in Israel - Against All Odds. What is anti-Semitism? What are the different types of anti-Semitism that exist today? What misguided notions feed anti-Semitism in the modern world? The book is well structured and presented. Persaud writes on the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and how the movement has been used as a disguised attempt to vilify the Jews. He also shares on the Iranian nuclear deal and the costly assumptions made by the world leaders who saw the agreement through. Despite the bleak future that faces the nation of Israel, Persaud ends the book with a note of hope. Rigorously researched and excellently written, Israel - Against All Odds is an eye-opening read.
