King “An irrepressible sense of humor runs through it It’s not satire I’m talking about it’s stuff like the cross dressing pilot my favorite character and any number of deliciously absurd situations the pink jets It’s the inevitable result of an eye that sees the funny side even in horror So few writers have that This novel will cause talk and controversy Most of all it will be read”.

Stephen King calls Hesh Kestin’s The Siege of Ghetto Tel Aviv “scarier than anything Stephen King ever wrote” Iran leads five Arab armies in a brutal victory over Israel which ceases to exist Within hours its leaders are rounded up and murdered the IDF is routed and the country's six million Jews concentrated in Tel Aviv which becomes a starving ghetto While the US and the West sit by the. Since its founding on May 14 1948 the State of Israel has fought three wars whose outcome arguably was existential the War of Independence 1948 1949 the Six Day War 1967 and the Yom Kippur War 1973In The Siege of Tel Aviv Hesh Kestin imagines a point in the near future where Iran leads Arab armies in a genocidal war against Israeland wins So uick and total is the Persian Arab victory over Israel that six million Jews flee to the only major Israeli city still under Jewish control Tel Aviv making it a ghetto Meanwhile the US and the UN watch and wait not wanting to interrupt the flow of oil from the Middle EastBut the Israelis take a page from the fighters of the Warsaw Ghetto and begin to fight back led by the unlikely duo of an Israeli capitalist and a Russian Jewish mobster Other memorable characters in the story include a cross dressing ace pilot in the Israel Air Force a Bedouin Israeli Defense Force scout and a Christian Arab barber who remain loyal to Israel three joy riding Marine FA 18 pilots who save the day at crucial moment and a six ship flotilla of Amazing Grace singing Christian fundamentalists on a humanitarian mission to feed the besieged cityThe Siege of Tel Aviv is a page turner whose premise is frighteningly plausible The problem is that the book s happy ending isn t In the aftermath of the Yom Kippur War which Israel nearly lost Israel realized that its victory in the Six Day War had falsely led it to conclude that the Arabs would never fight it again because of its humiliating loss In Hebrew this false conclusion is known as the kontzeptziyaWhat worries me about The Siege of Tel Aviv is that Israel s comeback is too easy the instance of a new kontzeptziya that Israel s will to live is sufficient to overcome overwhelming odds against it Given its victories in 1949 1967 and 1973 I can understand the basis for this Israel has survived it will survive The problem with this novel s execution of that will to survive is that the victory is just too easy SPOILER ALERT One doesn t just liberate the entire Kuwaiti Air Force or steal hundreds of Jordanian tanks as uickly and painlessly as the rejuvenated IDF doesMoreover it seems to me that there are a number of false notes in Kestin s portrayal of Christian fundamentalists and the Southern Republican US president Neither talk nor think the way Kestin portrays them At least not the Christians and as a Christian minister I speak with some experience hereSo a three star review from me The book was enjoyable as I read it but after I read it the too easy victory and character false notes sounded too loudly to ignore That said Steve King to whom the book is dedicated likes it saying it is scarier than anything he ever wrote So weigh that in the balance with my reviewA final note The first edition of this book was published by Dzanc Books who had published a previous novel by Kestin Activists accused the book of being Islamophobic so under pressure Dzanc pulped it Kestin then released it in a self published second edition which is what I reviewed Is the book Islamophobic I didn t think so and neither does Commentary magazine You ll have to read the book to make up your own mindBook ReviewedHesh Kestin The Siege of Tel Aviv 2nd ed Shoeshine Press 2019PS If you liked my review please click Helpful on my review page
