    One thought on “The Fight for Jerusalem: Radical Islam, The West, and The Future of the Holy City”

    1. This book could be called the case for Jewish controlled Jerusalem. This book argues that internationalization and Palestinian appeasement are both failed policies when it comes to the Holy city. Reading this book made me rethink my personal views.

    2. A great history lesson on why Israel is the best choice to to govern Jerusalem -- but it is a bit too long and detailed. A bit like reading an encyclopedia.

    3. The Fight for Jerusalem is a retelling of Jerusalem’s formative moments as well as the current bitter struggle for control of the holy city. Offering up the Israeli perspective, it provides a convincing argument for why modern Jerusalem should be governed by the Middle East’s sole Jewish state and not the Palestinian Authority. The author, Dore Gold, describes the record of problems with the Arabs and radical Islam. However, the text largely reads as a long and dry chronological timeline. It [...]

    4. Very interesting so far. Reads like a text book, though, so it's taking me a while to plow through in between interruptions.

    5. As someone who reads a fair amount of the Middle East [1], I have certain expectations about a book like this.  I would like to state at the outset that this book was surprising but in a way that was extremely impressive.  This is not the sort of book that will be enjoyed by those who are apologists for the PLO and who are hostile to Israel.  In this tour de force, the author strikes me as the student in the class who knows all the answers and leaves no gracious option to those with whom she [...]

    6. I wanted to get to know more about this endless topic so I picked up this book and I was disappointed and I abandoned it after reading the first 100 pages and scanning through the rest of it.The author doesn't even try to take a neutral stand neither in tone nor in content.This is just a common story with two characters: the innocent "me" and the villain "you""Judaism has already proven its tolerant outlook on Jerusalem and its holy sites. Ancient Judaism believed in freedom of worship in Jerus [...]

    7. This was pretty much a one sided look at Isreal and their plight with Palestine/Islam. According to this book Isreal has done no wrong, never provoked, and certainly never attacked Palestinians except when defending itself. A little too biased for me.

    8. Good book with insightful thoughts but too much of it was over my head. I need to find a more simplified book that starts at the beginning of the conflict and outlines each parties complaints. This book just jumped right in talking about people and wars that I was unfamiliar with.

    9. I found this a fascinating read. The author seemed to be fairly knowledgable about religions other than his own. Even though it was written about 7 or 8 years ago, it doesn't seem like much has changed in the Middle East.

    10. Good history, good analysis. The premise is that Christians are being run out of Jerusalem, and if that occurs what's left-total muslim domination?
