An anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist, anti-Israel book called “The Promised Land” has recently been published in Czechoslovakia in 14,000 copies, Maariv reported Sunday. The book claims, among other things, that “the Eichmann trial was conducted in order to get rid of a dangerous witness who knew too much,” that in the Six-Day War the IDF gave orders not to take prisoners of war, and that one of the heads of the Haganah was in charge of Nazi espionage.
