Needing Something to Read?

Relations between Arabs and Jews By Sarah Elshazly
Israeli Arabs have always yearned to be with other Arabs. The language, culture and just being with other Arabs was enough to get a tear in our eyes. It took me a total of 10 minutes to see what I was, or wasn't missing. When I came to the US and started meeting Arabs from the Arab world I was so taken aback.

Must-Read Book

The Third Terrorist: The Middle East Connection to the Oklahoma City Bombing -- by Jayna Davis

(editorial review from Amazon.com) Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols were not the lone conspirators in the Oklahoma City bombing—the attack that killed nearly 170 people in a few short seconds. They were part of a greater scheme, one which involved Islamic terrorists and at least one provable link to Iraq. This book, written by the relentless reporter who first broke the story of the Mideast connection, is filled with new revelations about the case and explains in full detail the complete, and so far untold, story behind the failed investigation—why the FBI closed the door, what further evidence exists to prove the Iraqi connection, why it has been ignored, and what makes it more relevant now than ever. Told with a gripping narrative style and rock-solid investigative journalism and vetted by men such as former CIA director James Woolsey, Davis’s piercing account is the first book to set the record straight about what really happened April 19, 1995.

That is very interesting with the Sundance channel. I wonder what kind of documenties they will be showing. I have the title of a great DVD set. I don't have the set here. And I don't remember the name. But, when I look at it later I will let you know the name. It is a good set.

Have a good New Year.

I think I left a post earlier. In case I didn't and just imagined I did, have you ever seen the DVD set
Heritage - Civilization and the Jews with Abba Eban. It is pretty good. I don't know if I would buy it if I were you. It is expensive depending on where you look for it and you can only watch it so many times. They show it on public TV once a year(the only valuable thing I have ever seen on PBS).

My parents have that set and I dubbed a copy (shhh! Don't tell the copyright police!) and I've watched it on PBS (agree with you it's the only decent thing on there for the most part--at least the only thing decent to Israel). It is a great series! I was wondering if that was what you were going to mention from your last post. Excellent choice! Thanks for sharing it -- it's a great recommendation.
