“As a literary work, it isn’t much. But as a piece of propaganda, it’s the greatest thing ever written about Israel,” said Israel’s first Prime Minister David Ben Gurion.— quote taken from “Re-reading Leon Uris’ Exodus,” Alan Elsner, Huffpost, June 24, 2013. I agree. This was the second time I tried reading it; I never finished it the first time. The overt glorification of a fraudulent history is nauseating.

"Exodus" is a timeless classic. I read this book again because of what is currently going on Poland. Poland is claiming they were innocents in the holocaust. That is very much not true. Leon Uris takes some liberties with his story, but the facts he uses as background are historical facts. Jewish people were treated horribly for centuries. The holocaust was the epitome, but it was not the end. What Jewish people did to create Israel was truly amazing, and they did despite very strong resistance from their British overseers. The Brits felt that continued access to Arab oil was more important than humanity. I'm of Polish and Irish descent, and I believe everyone should read this book.
