For a long time, the cultural and media scene in the USA remained closed to any writing dealing with the Zionist entity as a  structure and behavior,  by virtue of the media , political and economic influence  of the World Zionist Movement and its  practiced falsification of Western  consciousness on the reality  of what happened and is happening in the region.

There are few academic writings that dealt with that Zionist entity.  An important precedent in this area indicates a significant shift in this direction,  was a book published recently by  Columbia University, one of the most famous  American universities , authored  by  two Israeli writers: Ami Pedahzur and Arie Perliger, entitled "Jewish Terrorism in Israel".

 Forwarding the book, the prestigious university  indicated that  the book more than a  best seller, as it took  a ten-year academic effort   of specialists in terrorism and national security issues.

According to critics, the importance of the book does not only  stem from its  ever " untold" theme, nor of the fact that the authors are Israeli Jews, but because the two authors  were able after several years of research and investigation to have access to thousands of important  and secret documents of the Israeli  governments pertinent to Zionist terrorism since even before the creation  of the Zionist entity,  and how this helped in creating the conditions  to implant  this entity  in occupied Palestine.

The book includes dozens of interviews with former terrorists who were  known to Zionist and American  intelligence services , with persons  who cooperated with them  in the West,  as well as with politicians and security officials involved.

The two authors also held more than six opinion polls came across  over 4800 people representing  different scientific and academic levels and segments who embraced and backed the terrorists throughout several decades.  The two authors expressed a point of view about the relationship between terrorism and religion, considering  that terrorism is not confined to religion or ideology, rather a phenomenon  which is growing, wherever generating environments,  incubating it , are available.   They depict parallelism and similarity in the movement between the terrorist groups  in all religions.

The new philosophy that the two authors added was  that the doctrine itself is not generating violence, but the  militancy within any culture , which considers itself  the target or exposed  to envision a defensive front  against an external threat contributes to generate violence. The two authors introduced a new approach to the definition of terrorism centered on  some points: The use of violence;  a stimulation by   political motive;  the intention to spread fear and terror among victims, the victims  are to be civilians .

Perhaps, the most notable in the book is giving numbers and dates about the Zionist terrorism in Palestine and abroad. The  book included 3 databases covering  309 terrorist  Jewish attacks  in Palestine since 1932 until 2008, i.e. before barbaric aggression against  and about 224 of different  figures of  various ranks  involved in these attacks,  with a detailed explanation of the mechanism of action of the Zionist  terrorist networks,  their interdependence and inter- coordination .

The two authors went deeply into the history, shedding   light on the far-in time  record  of terrorist operations carried out by  the Jews. They started from the Jewish  Hasmonean family , whose members launched attacks against the Roman rulers in Palestine and poisoned the rivers and wells – which was by the way the first terrorist acts recorded in history –This early terrorist act shows  us the similarity between yesterday and today and how terrorism and extremism nested  within the structure and ideology  of this  entity.  A fact revealed on the lips and  pens  of  the entity 's two  countrymen, namely the two Jewish authors.

Worthy mentioning that all Jewish organizations in USA  ignored the book , with a clear objective not to highlight it  or create the motivation among readers to buy it. A matter, which will eventually influence  the  attitude of the American  cultural and academic circles  and  the American public opinion, altogether. 

From here emerges  the  important role to be played by Arab media , the  Arab communities in America and  sides concerned in the Arab League and embassies, so that efforts should be  materialized for a   remarkable  presence  and outstanding writings    of prominent  Arab writers and analysts  to be published in open  American and  World  media.  Such a presence can be maintained by explaining the content of the said book to the American Public opinion  and in making  it available at various levels of media means  as well as on the internet , where   the Americans constitute a large segment of its users.

  However, carrying out  such an activity, is  not only a moral, national and  humanitarian duty, but  also an opportunity to unmask  the history of Zionism in an environment,  which for  long period of  times remained outside our academic and  media  activities outreach , when Zionist media  proceeded in fabricating lies ,  deceiving  and distorting  the truth , portraying  Arabs, especially the Palestinians  as criminals and the Zionists as a victim!
