"This book is the most comprehensive and well based study about Palestinian-Arab-Israeli
relations that has appeared
in Germany. The book is highly recommended", in: The Jerusalem Times, Januar 2000.
"La grande qualite du livre de Ludwig Watzal, est son approche globale du conflit
israelo-palestinien, dont il es un des
meilleurs connaisseurs en Allemagne", in: Le Monde diplomatique, April 1999.
"Watzal writes from a German perspective ... The peace process is a bluff, as
far as Watzal is concerned. It serves Israel as a means by which it continues
its struggle against the Palestinians ... Watzal is most convincing in his
exposure of the ´peace process` as a continued occupation of almost all of
historical Palestine by Israel ... From someone as perceptive and bold as
Watzal, one would have liked to hear not only about the past, but also about
the future.", in: Journal of Palestine Studies, 110 (1999) 2.
"One of the most comprehensive, most competent, but unfortunately also
most pessimistic publications that has been published for a long time.",
in: International - Zeitschrift für Internationale Politik (Austria), 3/1998.
"Whoever wants to inform herself/himself in an unprejudiced manner
regarding Israel must read this book. It offers insights into a country
that are elsewhere considered taboo.",
in: Sicherheitspolitik (Switzerland), January 1999.
