The intro to the review is done by the wonderful, Wolff Bachner.
Many of The Inquisitr’s readers may already be familiar with the work of our Israeli colleague, Adina Kutnicki. Her recent interview on the insidious octopus known as The Muslim Brotherhood was a wake up call about the dangers we all face from religious extremists.
Adina Kutnicki has written much about the trials and tribulations of life in Israel. The Jewish state, the only Democracy in the war torn Middle East, is surrounded by enemies dedicated to her destruction.
Israel has not only managed to survive, but the Jewish state had turned a desert into a garden of promise. Israel is a world leader in technology, science and medicine, receiving more Nobel Prizes, Per capita, than any nation on Earth.
Yet, despite all the triumphs of this tiny nation, there are those who seek to demonize and dismantle the Zionist dream, and sadly, they are succeeding by spreading their hateful propaganda and lies about the Jewish people and Israel.
As the repugnant Nazi fanatic Joseph Goebbels said: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” And despite everything the world should have learned from the Holocaust and the genocide of six million Jews, Goebbel’s sickness is spreading once again, and Israel is in great jeopardy.
With this in mind, Ms. Kutnicki has written a review of an important new book by Bat-Zion Susskind-Sacks, On A Wing From The Holy Land. We invite you to experience the life journey of the novel’s protagonist, and learn the truth about the nation of Israel and the millions of Jews who yearn for peace and co-existence in a very troubled world.
A Novel By Bat-Zion Susskind-Sacks
Book Review By Adina Kutnicki
On a Wing from the Holy Land, by Bat-Zion Susskind-Sacks (an Israeli writer, a “sabra” and a world traveler, she is also an American citizen) is a gripping novel about Jessica Kozlow, the story’s protagonist. Its centerpiece revolves around one woman’s soul-searing journey, as she yearns for life’s greatest treasures; veracity, peace, liberty and genuine love.
Back-dropped in juxtaposition to a tumultuous 100 year historical context (affecting 4 generations), Jessica, its lead character, ends up traveling the world, not soon after coming of age in her native Israel. Her childhood and teenage years in Israel span from the 1950′s through the early 1970′s.
But before Jessica could commence her first (of many) foray abroad, she begins her service in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), like the rite of passage of most (Jewish) Israelis. She joins the IDF a mere four years after the Arabs wage another war of annihilation, the Six-Day War in 1967.
Jessica’s aching desire is to serve within the military entertainment unit, a unit which enjoys many advantages, including traveling to remote bases and taping shows for both radio and television audiences. She is a budding actress, and the thrill of performing gives her a rush. Naturally, Jessica is giddy with delight at her acceptance into this well-respected troupe.
