What the critics say

" Fateful Triangle may be the most ambitious book ever attempted on the conflict between Zionism and the Palestinians viewed as centrally involving the United States. It is a dogged expose of human corruption, greed, and intellectual dishonesty. It is also a great and important book, which must be read by anyone concerned with public affairs." (Edward Said, from the Preface)
"A devastating collection of charges aimed at Israeli and American policies that affect the Palestinian Arabs negatively" ( Library Journal)
"Brilliant and unscrupulous." ( Observer)

Ethical Right to the Point

As usual Noam Chomsky is right on target to tell it how it truly is. This book has been revised to 2015. You will learn about Oslo accords and many more sad realities about our imperialistic & pseudo-democratic military killing doctrine and regime. But the human spirit still has hope that truth and love will prevail.

Chomsky is my new friend

It's horrible what's been going on for so long and should be a national embarrassment.

a must read!

Simply phenomenal. The full story of this conflict is rarely told in the US. This book rectifies that fact.

Brilliant and Insightful

Fateful Triangle is another brilliant work by Chomsky. The book relies on sources and quotes from every side, American, Israeli, Palestinian, and the rest of the world, to describe the history of Israel-Palestine relations in a way that makes sense.

Narrated - Brian Jones

Noam Chomsky is one the greatest minds so it’s a given that the content on the book is outstanding. The narrator, however, is one of the worst! His voice will lull you into a deep sleep. I have to listen to the narrator at a faster speed to stay awake. It’s unfortunate that Brian Jones seems to be the narrator for quite a few of Chomsky’s audiobooks.

Not worth the money and time

What disappointed you about Fateful Triangle?

The book is presenting wrong facts or pretend to show facts which once researched are shown to be wrong. most assumptions the writer is presenting were already proven to be wrong (i.e the untied state has no issues nor threats coming from radical Islam....)
This boor portray the US, Israel some EU countries as warmongering.
It portray the PLO, Hamas and Hizzbulah as legitimate freedom fighters who are seeking peace and that the US and Israel are the one who are standing in the way of achieving that peace.
there is never a mentioning of the terror acts done by these organization and every action taken by the US and Israel is presented as an act of aggression ( i.e the first Lebanon war- is shown as an Israeli aggression and has no context nor mentioning of the constant rockets and terror act that were dome by the PLO actions that led to the war.)

very misleading and with lear agenda.

Has Fateful Triangle turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not at all, still looking for a book with a more balanced perspective

Would you be willing to try another one of Brian Jones’s performances?

yes

one side of the coin

He presents one side of the coin only. Very acidic. His tone is that of a propagandist not a historian. I was disappointed.
