Praise for THE PUNISHMENT OF GAZA:

“There are more terrible atrocities in the world than what is being done to the caged prisoners of Gaza, but it is not easy to think of a more cruel and cowardly exhibition of human savagery, fully supported by the US, with Europe trailing politely behind. Gideon Levy’s passionate and revealing account is an eloquent, even desperate, call to bring this shocking tragedy to an end, as can easily be done.” – Noam Chomsky

“The story of Gideon Levy—and the attempt to deride, suppress or deny his words—is the story of Israel distilled. If he loses, Israel itself is lost.” – Johann Hari, INDEPENDENT http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/is-gideon-levy-the-most-hated-man-in-israel-or-just-the-most-heroic-2087909.html

“An Israeli dedicated to saving his country’s honour.” – Nick Lezard, GUARDIAN

“Levy has a way with words that leads him to some brilliant indictments of Israel.” – ELECTRONIC INTIFADA http://electronicintifada.net/v2/article11173.shtml 

“Levy has made it his exclusive mission … to document the grim and brutal facts of the occupation, to tell the stories he knows Israelis do not want to hear … To this shiny nation—democratic, prosperous, confident in its righteousness—Levy holds up Gaza like a mirror.” – Ben Ehrenreich, Nation http://www.thenation.com/article/154140/book-amos-gideon-levy 

“Gideon Levy is among a small group of Israeli journalists giving a face and a voice to Palestinians in the world’s most intractable conflict.” – MONTREAL GAZETTE

“Levy … deals with the politically and emotionally charged subject of the hardships of Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza, and their conflicts with the Israeli military and Jewish settlers.” –rabble.ca: http://rabble.ca/blogs/bloggers/amjohal/2010/09/moral-blindness-interview-gideon-levy
