The Israelis: Ordinary People in an Extraordinary Land
CNN has its perspectives. Al Jazeera very different ones. The BBC has its versions. The New York Times theirs. But how does Israel look to Israelis?
THE ISRAELIS was born when a CNN producer asked Donna Rosenthal: "Our viewers are confused. We have footage of Jews who look like Arabs, Arabs who look like Jews. We have black Jews, bearded 16th century Jews and sexy girls in tight jeans. Who are these people?" Despite the avalanche of news from Israel, few people know much about modern Israelis. Find out from award-winning journalist Donna Rosenthal who explores the "other Israel" in THE ISRAELIS: ORDINARY PEOPLE in an EXTRAORDINARY LAND (Free Press/ Simon & Schuster, updated 2008 paperback).
