Michael Curtis brings yet
another clear and concise presentation of the reality facing Israel and
the world. Utilizing the metaphor of the miner's canary, used to give
warning to the presence of poisonous gas, Curtis deftly lays out for the
reader how the attitudes, lies and false dealings of the international
community are used against Israel, and suggests they are not isolated in
their impact only on Israel. Rather, they are but a "canary's warning"
to the rest of the Western, democratic world of their own impending
danger. (Publisher copy)
