This is an eye-opening book that reveals just how much the world truly hates Jews. On May 14, 1949, President Harry S. Truman officially recognized the State of Israel. From that moment, this tiny sliver of desert has been fighting against a world of anti-Semites, terrorists, and the utterly ignorant who blame the Jew for everything from the Black Plague to sacrificing babies in the name of God.

A Safe Haven reveals just how unfeeling and uncaring the U.S. State Department and the English government - along with just about every other country in the world - were. After six million Jews were killed in Hitler's attempted genocide, a million and a half survivors remained - and no one would help. In fact, the conditions after the war were almost as horrendous as what happened during it. Even General Patton, the great leader of the U.S. armed forces, was a violent anti-Semite.

If anyone could ever question why Israel fights to defend itself against neighbors that would devour and eliminate them in a heartbeat if given the chance, they need to read this. Truman, the man who finally gave Israel recognition, was not devoid of anti-Jewish feelings himself. He didn't care one way or the other what happened to the country and became enraged on more than one occasion over the incessant and focused lobbying by Zionist professionals.

This is a tremendously researched book that draws on archives from the United States, Israel and Great Britain. Many of these documents have been overlooked for decades and decades.

Israel that is a country that has grown from a lifeless desert into one of the leading technical giants of the world. It has brought culture and education to a part of the world where those elements have all been but forgotten. Surrounded by monsters, Israel defends itself against all odds, the struggle chronicled in A Safe Haven.
