The Link: Fact and Fiction in Palestine

The Link, published on a bi-monthly basis, is Americans for Middle East Understanding's primary education and information tool. More than 175 issues of The Link have followed since the first issue in 1968.

The Link archive constitutes a body of informed commentary, fact and anecdotal evidence that is all the more valuable for writers, researchers and historians because each issue (for the most part) covers only one subject.

Click here to read the current issue, entitled, "Fact and Fiction in Palestine."  This issue is written by Gil Maguire, a retired human rights lawyer. His grandfather served as a judge at the Nuremberg War Crimes. His father was a WWII pilot who, following the war, transported Jews from all over the world to the new state of Israel.  All that is true. What follows, though, is a clash of two Exodus stories: one, a bestseller, written in 1957 by Leon Uris, and one a newly self-published novel by Gil Maguire.
