Every day in Israel, memorials are held for people killed simply because they were Jews--condemned by the fury of Islamic fundamentalism. A New Shoah is the first book devoted to telling the story of these Israeli terror victims. It centers on a previously unheard oral history of the Middle Eastern conflict from the viewpoint of the Jewish victims and their families.
Ten years ago, Palestinian terrorist groups launched their Second Intifada, resulting in an Israeli "Ground Zero" with 1,500 civilian victims. Israel is a tiny country, and this number would be proportionally equivalent to about 54,000 terror victims in the United States. The hundreds of attacks in Israel, day after day, amount to a sort of "new Shoah," as Roger Scruton explains in his foreword. Giulio Meotti spoke to many of the Israeli families that have been destroyed by terror attacks on all the ordinary places of everyday life: on buses, kibbutzim, religious places, cafés and restaurants. Many of the survivors told their heartbreaking stories of loss for the first time. In these human fragments lie the raison d'être for the State of Israel, the first country in the world to experience suicide bombings on a massive scale, the fruit of jihadi nihilism.
 
 
 
***
 
"At the heart of the Jewish tradition is a metaphysics of radical hope: The world is a good place, and by our efforts we can make it better. Meotti demonstrates that this life-affirming spirit remains alive in modern Israel, and A New Shoah is more than the story of victims of terrorism. It is a tribute to the power of determination and hope"
The Weekly Standard
 
"A New Shoah is a labor of love".
Commentary
 
"We have become accustomed to talk blandly of 'terrorism' as if it were some sort of abstraction. But Giulio Meotti in meticulous fashion puts human faces on the body count from the organized Palestinian terrorist killing of Israeli civilians--and thereby reminds us that this is not a morally equivalent struggle, but a systematic effort to extinguish Israelis and the civilization that they have created."
Victor Davis Hanson, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and author of Carnage and Culture
 
"A necessary book. A magisterial work". 
National Review 
 
"An important testament to the victims of terror".
Jerusalem Post  
 
"An historic work. A must read for its historic significance and current relevance. It is an important work, not just to the Israeli people, but to the world." 
New York Journal of Books 
 
"Israel's Truman Capote"
Ricochet
 
"One of the most important books of our time" 
Frontpage
 
"One of the best Jewish books of the year" 
Jewish Ideas Daily
 
 
"It's essential reading to anyone who wants to measure the full human drama underway in the Holy Land"
George Weigel 
  
"A fascinating look at the relentless attempt to make Israel disappear"
Worldnetdaily
 
"With eloquence and compassion, Giulio Meotti puts a human face on the atrocities suffered by nearly two thousand Israelis killed in terrorist incidents."
Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum and distinguished visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution  
 
"I highly recommend this book to anyone who cares about the future of the Jewish State"
Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein

From the Author:

"A New Shoah: The Untold Story of Israel's Victims of Terrorism" tells a heart-wrenching story that almost never makes the front pages--or even the back pages--of the world's newspapers: the story of what jihadist terrorism has done to the lives, souls and memories of the people of the State of Israel. The European edition of the Wall Street Journal called the book "a monumental study of pain and grief, of mourning and remembrance, of hatred and love," which is not an exaggeration. Nor is the title of Meotti's study misplaced, for he powerfully asserts the continuity between Nazi-era Jew-hatred and the annihilationist project of Hamas and similar jihadist organizations today.  It's essential reading for anyone who wants to measure the full human drama underway in the Holy Land".
George Weigel
