This concise and clearly argued book makes the case that Israels desire to be the sole regional power in the Middle East neatly chimed with Bushs objectives in the war on terror. Examining a host of related issues, from the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians to the role of Big Oil and the demonisation of the Arab world, Cook argues that the current chaos in the Middle East is the objective of the Bush administration - a policy that is equally beneficial to Israel.
