Alan Hart, author of 'Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews' will be our Guest on He will be answering your questions and will be with us for an hour, between 7.30pm to 8.30pm.
Alan Hart, has been engaged with events in the Middle East and their global consequences and terrifying implications – the possibility of a Clash of Civilisations, Judeo-Christian v Islamic, and, along the way, another great turning against the Jews – for nearly 40 years:
- As a correspondent for ITN's News At Ten and the BBC's Panorama programme (covering wars and conflicts wherever they were taking place in the world).
- As a researcher and author. (His first book Arafat, Terrorist or Peacemaker? was published by Sidgwick & Jackson in 1984 and subsequently in several updated editions over a decade).
Alan Hart thus brings to the pages of his latest book, Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews, and to the debating chamber, a deep understanding of why, really, the Countdown to Armageddon is on and how it can be stopped.
- As a participant at leadership level, working to a Security Council background briefing, in the covert diplomacy of the search for peace.
The Zionism of the book's title is Jewish nationalism, the creating and sustaining force of modern Israel. And this Zionism, political Zionism, is not to be confused with what could be called the spiritual Zionism of Judaism. Awareness of the difference between political Zionism and Judaism is the key to understanding why it is perfectly possible to be passionately anti-Zionist without being in any way, shape or form anti-Semitic or anti-Israel inside its pre-1967 borders.
Alan hart has witnessed the war with the israeli and palestinians but the learning experience he values most, and which he believes gave him rare insight, came from his one-to-one private conversations over the years with many leaders on both sides of the conflict. For example, Golda Meir, Mother Israel, and Yasser Arafat, Father Palestine. The significance of these private conversations was that they enabled Alan to be aware of the truth of what leaders really believed and feared as opposed to what they said in public for propaganda and myth-sustaining purposes.
Alan has long believed that what peacemaking needs above all else is some truth-telling, about many things but, especially, the difference between Zionist mythology and real history, and, the difference between Jews and Judaism on the one hand and Zionists and Zionism on the other.
(The Zionism of the title and substance of Alan's latest book is, of course, political Zionism or Jewish nationalism as the creating and sustaining force of the Zionist state, not what could be called the spiritual Zionism of Judaism).
