ICWV is in the process of creating a steady stream of books with the intent to influence public opinion.
- We are fighting the new wave of antisemitism in Europe and elsewhere.
- We try to correct misconceptions regarding the history of Israel and the conflict between Palestinians and Israelis.
- It is our goal to make people aware of the antidemocratic tendencies within traditional Islam.
- We expose those who demonize Jews and the Jewish state.
Today, well over 100 million Europeans embrace a satanic view of the State of Israel. They believe that Israel is exterminating the Palestinians, despite their major population growth in recent decades. This current widespread demonic view of Israel is a new mutation of the diabolical beliefs about Jews held by many in the Middle Ages, and those promoted more recently by the Nazis and their allies. This demonization has been exacerbated by the consequences of the massive and non-selective immigration into Western Europe from Muslim countries, where incitement against Jews and Israel is often fanatic and ongoing.
This collection of 57 interviews with scholars, politicians, and the like, depicts how extensive and intense the hate-mongering is. In his opening essay, Gerstenfeld puts the facts and views presented in the book into context.

RVP Press has released a new book by Manfred Gerstenfeld: Israel's New Future, Revisited. The release of this tome is supported by ICWV.
Israel’s New Future, Revisited provides
a refreshing reassessment of how Israel should maneuver cautiously to
maintain military safety, internal social stability, and a growing
economy. All this, while several of its neighbors face decay and
The original edition of this book was published in 1994. Not long after the first Oslo Accords were signed, Manfred Gerstenfeld interviewed sixteen prominent Israelis, including Abba Eban, Moshe Arens, and Abraham B. Yehoshua, about their prognoses and hopes for the Jewish State. Where was their country heading in this new era? It is fascinating to (re-)read these assessments from twenty years ago. As the Middle East remains in a permanent flux, accurate predictions are quite rare—naïve dreams more common.
In his extensive introduction to this second edition, Gerstenfeld provides an enlightening description of how the Middle East has developed into an even more unstable region in recent years, with constant new challenges for Israel to tackle.

Prof. Johannes J.G. Jansen’s The Neglected Duty, first published in 1986, shows that in the 1970s and 1980s, Egypt was already pregnant with twins: the Arab Spring and the seizure of power by Sharia fundamentalists, organized in the Muslim Brotherhood. Since June 2012, the Brotherhood rules Egypt—its dream finally come true.
Is Sharia law to be applied in its entirety? Does Sharia law justify—perhaps even demand—the use of violence against any who do not submit to it, including governments, “lax” Muslims, Christians, Jews, and foreigners? These two questions have taken center stage in current political debates in Egypt.
Jansen elegantly and carefully describes the full spectrum of reactions to the ideology of jihad. He zooms in on a historical document, “The Neglected Duty” (Al-Farīda al-Ghā’ibah), written by Sadat’s assassins, who persistently called for jihad in order to establish Sharia law everywhere. Their radical approach to their cause has cost many lives—including those of the assassins themselves.
The release of this book is also supported by ICWV.
