Jonathan Cook



Jonathan Cook is a British journalist based in Nazareth, Israel whose articles on the Middle East have been regularly published in international newspapers, English-language Arab publications and specialist magazines since 2001. The Guardian, The Observer and The Times (London) The International Herald Tribune and Le Monde diplomatique (Paris) Al-Ahram Weekly (Cairo) Al-Jazeera English language website (Doha) The Daily Star (Beirut) The Middle East Report and Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (Washington) Przekroj (Warsaw) The Irish Times (Dublin) Electronic Intifada Counterpunch His first book, entitled 'Blood and Religion: The Unmasking of the Jewish and Democratic State', is published by Pluto Press in Britain in April and in the United States in July 2006. It concerns Israel's treatment of its Palestinian citizens during the second intifada, and the real reasons for the policies of territorial separation evident in the Gaza disengagement and the building of the West Bank wall. It argues that, threatened by predictions that the combined Palestinian population inside Israel and the Occupied Territories will soon outnumber the region's Jews, Israel decided to create an expanded fortress state, where only Jewish blood and Jewish religion count.
