Reviews - What do customers think about Fast Facts® on the Middle East Conflict?
Accurate background and depiction of the situation to 2003 Mar 19, 2006
Randall Price is a believing Christian who is also a strong supporter of Zionism and Israel. He , in my opinion, gets the whole story of the Middle East conflict in the right way. This work however was published in 2003 and because of the rapidity of events, needs to be brought- up-to -date. Its background information is excellent.
Excellent quick informative read. Aug 4, 2004
This book does an excellent job of explaining a complex subject in a very small amount of space. It gives a detailed timeline of the "Problem in the Middle East." Its question and answer format makes it easy to read and easy to find information. However there is a noticable slant toward the Israeli side of the conflict.
Wordy and confusing.. Feb 4, 2004
I was really disapointed with this overly detailed Mid. East Outline. Read, 'Christian Family Guide Explains The Middle East Conflict' it's MUCH better.
Encyclopedia of the Middle East Jul 4, 2003
Ever been confused about the Middle East? Get confused about who was in charge on a particular year in history? Perplexed about how the names of cities and regions changed over time?
This is your book.
I have heard Randall Price in bible prophecy conferences. He is an outstanding archeologist and bible scholar and is uniquely qualified to put this book together.
There is so much disinformation about the Middle East. If you want to be mislead, follow CNN and the major media players. If you want a "Reader's Digest" version of the Middle East, this is your book. Dr. Price is devoutly supportive of Israel and its right to the land. (Genesis 15:18)
It is a skinny book but chock full of information. I have it on my shelf like an encyclopedia reference. Thank you, Dr. Price for your work. We look forward to your visit to the Twin Cities in September 2003 at a bible prophecy conference. God bless.
A Veritable 'Gold Mine' Of Information On The Middle East. Jun 25, 2003
This is another excellent work by Randall Price which will be of enormous value and assistance to many in understanding the apparent complexities surrounding the ongoing Middle East conflict.
The Middle East conflict is analysed from it's very beginning, with most issues being resolved in a question and answer format, but at the same time providing a considerable amount of information.
The Palestinian `problem' is also examined with attention being given to the origin of the Palestinian `people' and who they actually are, the refugee issue, the involvement of the UN & the International community and how the Palestinians are funded.
Of particular note is that the Palestinian Authority is quoted as spending some ten million Euros per month to sponsor terrorist activities & to fund official hate propaganda in Palestinian schools (textbooks etc) and the official Palestinian media. This is revealed as being the same amount that the Palestinian Authority receives from the European Union.
Yasser Arafat himself is quoted as having personal holdings of some $1.3 BILLION. References are provided to substantiate these statements.
Special sections are devoted to the `intifadas' and how the conflict has been covered by the media.
All of the Arab-Israeli wars are covered in some detail, plus the subjects of Jerusalem, Islamic terrorism & the Iraqi conflict.
Important references are also included in relation to the so called `peace process', including the Camp David Accords, the Oslo Accords, UN Resolutions 242 etc., the Saudi `peace' plan and how/why these attempts to resolve the conflict have all failed. Both the Jewish and Arab claims to the Land are examined. Maps and charts are plentifully provided with many myths being dispelled and many facts confirmed.
One particularly interesting section describes how Yasser Arafat has used the media to promote the creation and dissemination of a revisionist `Palestinian history'. A process described here where the Palestinian Authority has used the press to gain International recognition as an `independent Arab nation', despite the fact that it has never officially existed as such. Nationalistic actions include the flying of a `Palestinian flag', the election of a `Palestinian President', the adoption of a constitution, declaration of independence, the proclamation of Jerusalem as the `capital of Palestine' and the reception of foreign diplomats at the Palestinian Authority HQ at the Orient House in Jerusalem.
The media's attentive reporting of such events helping to establish the perception that the Palestinian Authority is a `legitimate national entity' rather than just a political one. All of this receiving the attention without any media entity reporting that a `Palestinian national entity' has never existed at any time. A procedure which has been exploited within International circles amongst those who find it politically expedient in pursuing their own interests in the region.
Without such books as this many could be easily swept along by the media euphoria which can be distort the reality on the ground.
This book is a veritable `gold mine' of information on the Middle East and I highly recommend it to everyone. Randall Price's expertise on the Middle East is considerable. He has written many excellent books including `Jerusalem In Prophecy', `Unholy War' & `The Coming Last Days Temple'.
