Vengeance by George Jonas( Book )

"'Avner' was an agent of only twenty-six when he was summoned out of relative obscurity to head a specialist Israeli crack team and track down the men responsible for the massacre of eleven Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics in 1972. Vengeance is the account of this operation. It recounts how the team set about their task with ruthless application, stalking their Palestinian targets and carrying out precisely timed executions." "But it also reveals the other side of the coin: the terrible paradox that results when those in power, in a desperate bid against terrorism, resort to the very tactics of their enemies."--BOOK JACKET

Reflections on Islam : ideas, opinions, arguments by George Jonas( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Reflections on Islam, award-winning author and columnist George Jonas explores a range of issues that have come to occupy our daily attention. Is there a difference between Islam and Islamism (and does it matter if there is)? Are we in the midst of a clash of civilizations? How is the confrontation between theocracy and democracy manifesting itself outside of the Middle East? Was it a mistake to invade Iraq, or simply a mistake to stay? At what point do liberal impulses on matters such as multiculturalism and immigration becomes short-sighted and dangerous?" "Witty, provocative, and eloquent, this collection of essays - written between early 2001 and late 2006 - showcases Jonas at his best. Reflections on Islam should be required reading for anyone grappling with the defining issues of our age."--BOOK JACKET
