Mr. Hirst has one obsession : the State of Israel.
Israel seems to be all he is occupied with in this book. He hates the Jewish State on Lebanon’s border so much that he sometimes gets lost in his hate and writes page after page on how awful Israel is. This book isn’t a history on Lebanon, it is the history of a troubled person finding his outlet in bashing on Israel.
Even if you don’t like Israel, you surly want to inform yourself on Lebanon not on Israel with this book. Don’t buy it ! Do yourself a favor.
