The Real Enemy of the Jews

a New Book By Alan Hart, July 18, 2009

An Epic Three-Volume Account of the Making of Conflict in the Middle East


 Zionism: the Real Enemy of the Jews: The False Messiah

"I hope that all who are concerned about the troubles of the Middle East will read this book. It is immensely readable and a magnificent piece of work which reflects Alan Hart’s close relationship with Israeli and Palestinian leaders. We are in terrible trouble in the Middle East. The book explains how we got here and how we could move forward. The tragedy is hurting Palestinians, Israelis and the rest of the world. All who wish to engage in finding a way forward will be helped by reading this book."

CLARE SHORT, MP-UK  International Development Secretary in Tony Blair's government until her resignation over Iraq

"As a principled and historical review it is excellent, of great importance I think in terms of content, and the series when finished may even be considered heroic in effort and scope.."
     MARK BRUZONSKY, Founder
World Jewish Congress, first Washington representative


  Volume I: The False Messiah

“In this extraordinary book, Alan Hart has succeeded in elucidating for us the immediate and long term dangers involved in the unconditional Western support for Zionism and its oppressive policies against the Palestinians. The author provides us with a chilling exposure of how this embrace developed and continues to endanger the Jewish existence and fuels the anti-Semitism that refuses to disappear. Motivated by a genuine concern for peace in Israel and Palestine and beyond in the world at large, Alan Hart has written not only a strong indictment of Zionism, based on both research and personal experience, but also provided us with a charter for a better future.”

 —ILAN PAPPE Leading Israeli revisionist historican, author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine 

"Hart’s readable account of history, his obviously erudite analysis and his ability in bringing the factual conflict to life on the page ensures the reader's interest is unwavering throughout. His passion and empathy with both sides is apparent. For the Jews, the ‘unspeakable fear’ of another Holocaust due to Zionist manipulation and tyranny; and for the Arabs and Muslims, the anger and humiliation they are feeling every day that Palestine is being torn apart."

ZIONISM, THE REAL ENEMY OF THE JEWS is an epic three-volume journey through the propaganda lies and the documented truth of history as it relates to the making and sustaining of what has come to be called the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

Volume 1, The False Messiah uncovers the international intrigues that marked the period from the earliest days of Zionism to the creation of the State of Israel in 1948. This riveting account is the first ever to put all the pieces of the most complicated jigsaw puzzle together, to enable readers to see the whole picture for the first time, addressing with empathy all sides of the story.


Alan Hart is a former ITN and BBC Panorama foreign correspondent with a vast first-hand knowledge of the conflict in and over Palestine that became Israel. Over more than three decades he enjoyed intimate access to, and on the human level friendship with, leaders of both sides including Golda Meir, Mother Israel, and Yasser Arafat, Father Palestine. (Others included Moshe Dayan, Shimon Peres, Nasser, Sadat, King Faisal, King Hussein - the list is long). He also participated at a leadership level in the secret politics of the search for peace in the Middle East (as an intermediary between Arafat and Peres when it was presumed that Peres was headed for leadership). His first book Arafat, Terrorist or Peacemaker? was published by Sidgwick & Jackson in 1984 and subsequently in several updated editions over a decade, in America by Indiana University Press as ARAFAT. In the early 1970s, his independent production company produced the first ever and to date only documentary on the true dimensions of global poverty and its implications for all. The film, Five Minutes To Midnight, had its world premiere at the opening of the 7th Special Session of the UN General Assembly (called to discuss the need for a New World Economic Order), was shown on television in many Western countries, was versioned for schools and became a standard work of reference. For that effort Alan was credited with having played a leading role in getting the North-South issue on to the agenda for political and public debate.
