On July 4, 1976, a team of Israeli commandos stormed the old terminal building of the Entebbe airport. Their leader was thirty-year-old Lieutenant-Colonel Jonathan Nateanyahu, Known to his soldiers as Yoni; their mission, to free 106 hostages held by international terrorists and Idi Amin's Ugandan army. An hour later, when the hostages were safely on their way home, the legend of Entebbe was born. and with it was born the legend of Yoni, who fell in the battle that accompanied the rescue. This book presents the eloquent, passionate, revealing letters written by Yoni to his family, close friends, fellow soldiers and the women he loved. The result is a self-potrait the reader will never forget. With notes and an afterword by his brothers Iddo and Benjamin Netanyahu. An Introduction by Herman Wouk.

Content:
 A Distant Dream, by Levi Kaufman, is a historical novel set against the vivid backdrop of Medieval Europe and the anti-semitism that was its hallmark. In the year 1290, England's twelve thousand Jews became the continent's first community to face expulsion. Despite oppressive and unfair taxes and restrictive living conditions, the Jews had somehow managed to survive and even prosper. Now they were to be forced to abandon their homes and belongings. Where should the uprooted families go? Would any other Christian nations welcome them? Would they be allowed to remain in any one place for more than a few years? Perhaps some tired and idealistic English Jew dreamed of breaking away from Europe and the ever-deepening anguish of his exiled people. Perhaps he spoke to others around him and, together, they make plans. Perhaps there were some who dared to set out for some new land where they could live their lives as Jews. Where they could live undisturbed by the outside world

Opening: Canterbury, England. Winter 1290.

The darkness seemed thick enough to muffle even voices. Only a thin shaft of light peering out from behind a door broke the completeness of the night. A soft thud, and the door closed against its post, leaving two cold figures alone in the street.
(Levu Kaufman: A Distant Dream, page 7)

The first real attempts to find a diplomatic solution to the budding Arab-Zionist conflict date back to 1913 and 1914. In order to understand the context of these moves, we must go back to the year 1882, which may be taken as a convenient starting point for any discussion of Arab-Jewish relations in Palestine.

Syro-Mesopotamian Gnosis and Jewish Traditions

Price:  $85   (Last copy)
Add book to the cart

Content:
This volume examines the transmission of biblical pseudepigraphic literature and motifs from their largely Jewish cultural contexts in Palestine to developing gnostic milieux of Syria and Mesopotamia, particularly that one lying behind the birth and growth of Manichaeism. It surveys biblical pseudepigraphic literary activity in the late antique Near East, devoting special attention to revelatory works attributed to the five biblical forefathers who are cited in the Cologne Mani Codex: Adam, Seth, Enosh, Shem, and Enoch. The author provides a philological, literary, and religio-historical analysis of each of the five pseudepigraphic citations contained in the Codex, and offers hypotheses regarding the original provenance of each citation and the means by which these traditions have been adapted to their present contet.  Vol. XLI in Brill's "Nag Hammadi and Manichaean Studies" series.

 One of the most significant manuscript finds relating to the study of Manichaeism was the discovery and decipherment in 1969 at the University of Cologne of a diminuitive Greek uncial codex containing a hagiographical recountal of the early life of Mani, the religion`s founder and authoritative teacher.

Sumer, the land which came to be known in classical times as Babylonia, consists of the lower half of Mesopotamia, roughly identical with modern Iraq from north of Baghdad to the Persian Gulf.

Its climate is extremely hot and dry, and its soil, left to itself, is arid, wind-swept, and unproductive.
