'Shahak has the courage to to say what most Israelis do not dare to say and definitely do not want to hear ...[He] is a knowledgeable insider who builds his argument carefully on the best information ...The lessons to be drawn from what Shahak tells us are self-evident ...Open Secrets and Jewish History, Jewish Religion are two remarkable, powerful and provocative studies offering a penetrating examination of Israeli strategic foreign policies and Jewish religion and history.' London Review Of Books 'As a critic of Zionism and as an opponent of Jewish exclusivity, Israel Shahak is special. He possesses in-depth knowledge of Israeli society, Jewish culture and the history of his people. His humanitarian concerns and commitments are extensive; his work as a human rights campaigner ...is enormous ...Shahak provides insights [in Open Secrets] that are often far more penetrating than what has been written by others ...Little of the information and few of the insights in Open Secrets can be found in other books that focus on Israel and the Middle East ...Open Secrets is an excellent book for required reading in History, political science and/or international affairs courses in which there is consideration of Israel in the Middle East. ' The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs 'Outstanding ...A must not only for the Palestinians, but for anybody interested in Israeli politics' The Jerusalem Times 'Offers readers an interesting insight into the mentality of the Zionists, based largely on Hebrew sources which non-Jews are unable to access.' Crescent International

Summary: Israel's foreign policy is perceived to be essentially a defensive one by the international community. Why then, as a nuclear power, does it refuse to sign the NonProliferation Treaty? What are its true foreign and nuclear policies?Using the Hebrew press as his main source, veteran scholar and human rights campaigner Israel Shahak reveals Israel's strategic foreign policy as presented through its own domestic media: ie what other Israelis are told. Shahak argues that the Israeli government, with the help of those who support them in the US, are conducting a global policy aiming to control virtually the whole of the Middle East for their own purposes.
