About the Author

Israel Shahak was a resident of the Warsaw Ghetto and a survivor of Bergen-Belsen. He arrived in Palestine in 1945 and lived there until his death in 2001. He was an outspoken critic of the state of Israel and a human rights activist. He was also the author of the highly acclaimed Jewish Fundamentalism in Israel (Pluto Press 1999) and Open Secrets: Israeli Nuclear and Foreign Policies (Pluto Press 1997).


'Shahak subjects the whole history of Orthodoxy ... to a hilarious and scrupulous critique.' Christopher Hitchens, The Nation'The voice of reason is alive and well, and in Israel, of all places. Shahak is the latest - if not the last - of the great prophets.' Gore Vidal'The future of the Palestinian people would have looked much brighter if there had been more Israelis like Shahak ... An outstanding personality.' The Jerusalem Times
