RVP Press has released a new book by Manfred Gerstenfeld:  Demonizing Israel and the Jews. The release of this tome is supported by ICWV and the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

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.

books1RVP 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 internal unrest. 
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.

[Released September 2013]


Cover of new edition @ RVP Press.

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.

bookCVR Basket 01

To Hell in a Handbasket is a chilling account of how Jimmy Carter's abandonment of a longtime U.S. ally in favor of a murderous mullah thirty years ago enabled the Islamization of Iran—and how Barack Obama's current obliviousness to and appeasement of the radical Muslim world are helping to Islamize the rest of the Middle East.

This polemic is written by Ruthie Blum. Blum, who immigrated to Israel from the United States in 1977, was a columnist, interviewer, and senior editor at The Jerusalem Post for two decades.

John Bolton (Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations) says: "The United States needs to wake up to what is happening [in the Middle East], and Ruthie Blum's book is just the ticket."

The Post-war Restitution of Property Rights in Europe is written by prominent historical and legal experts in the field.

bookCVR Ganz 02

In The Extraordinary Life of Josef Ganz, Paul Schilperoord chronicles how the antisemitic legislation and measures of the Third Reich ruined the life and career of one of Germany's most innovative engineers, a Jew from Frankfurt. The Nazis made sure Ganz was erased from the official record. Ganz created the basic concept for Hitler's Volkswagen, but only recently, years after his demise, received official recognition for his groundbreaking work. Manfred Grieger, head of the VW Company Archives, told The Times of London in response to questions about the book: "I will certainly now mention the contribution of Ganz, and put in proper perspective, in a new preface to our history of VW in the Third Reich." The biography has been nominated for the Sophie Brody Medal, an award given by the American Library Association for outstanding achievement in Jewish literature.

bookCVR Varkens01

Islam for Pigs, Monkeys, Donkeys, and Other Animals is an introduction to Islam based on 250 questions and answers by Hans Jansen. The title refers to the descriptions given of non-Muslims in the Koran and other Islamic holy literature. The creation of the book was a collaborative effort by Jansen and Van Praag. The latter provided the questions and created the overall structure. Once released in the Spring of 2008, it became an instant bestseller and the subject of fierce debate. On one of the most-watched late-night talk show of The Netherlands Pauw & Witteman, one of the guests, a Dutch media mogul, Harry De Winter, threw with a copy of the book out of anger. The incident was followed by a humorous but heated verbal exchange between De Winter and Jansen.

The Decay. A brave and controversial book on the rise of antisemitism in The Netherlands by Dr Manfred Gerstenfeld. It consists in part of revealing interviews with influential people from all walks of life, both Jews and non-Jews, including politicians, rabbis, and even a former MP. Most of them don't foresee a bright future for the Jewish minority in Holland. This publication led to a fierce public debate.

bookCVR Samira 01

The Islam, the Muslims, and Me. A no-holds-barred take on Islam in free Western societies, written by former Dutch leftwing MP Samira Bouchibti, born and raised a Muslim. She argues that traditional sharia law is on many levels in fierce conflict with democratic values. The release led to an article on the front page of the largest Dutch newspaper (De Telegraaf).

bookCVR Taboe 01

In The Immigration Taboo, well-known Dutch blogger Joost Niemöller profiles ten scientific researchers who focus their attention to immigration and related issues. Niemöller interviewed each one of them at length. They mainly discussed data that are seldom publicly shared, because presenting these often grim facts is widely considered not PChence the word "taboo" in the title. The data convey that Western economies in general are not benefitting from the influx of immigrants, on the contrary. This contraversial book was an eye-opener to many, while it led to heated debates in print media and on national TV. The Ministry for Home Affairs invited the author to discuss the provocative premise of the book with its staff.
