Reviews of ‘Europe’s Alliance with Israel: Aiding the Occupation’

“Remarkable, detailed… a microscopic analysis of ‘our’ relations with Israel.” Robert Fisk

“It seems to many that Israel is above international law. This important book explores the complex political ties that have prevented European countries from holding Israel to account. It is essential reading for all who care about justice and the rule of law. I hope David Cronin is prepared for the abuse he and his book will incur. Al…l the more reason to buy it, read it and take the discussion forward.” Ken Loach

“Europe’s alliance with Israel is an indictment of policies which are not simply flawed but duplicitous. All over the continent ministers criticise Israeli settlements from one side of their mouths and woo Israeli companies from the other. Cronin sums up his case in one sentence: “Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians is cruel, vindictive and illegal.” ” Dr Daud Abdullah

“Brussels-based Irish journalist David Cronin demonstrates in Europe’s Alliance with Israel that this is not the case with regard to Israel/Palestine where, as the title and subtitle (Aiding the Occupation) make explicit, the EU proudly allies itself with Israel and its violations of Palestinian human rights.” Raymond Deane

“And what reason have you that you should not fight in the way of Allah and of the weak among the men and the women and the children, (of) those who say: Our Lord! Cause us to go forth from this town, whose people are oppressors, and give us from Thee a guardian and give us from Thee a helper.”
