Dark Star represents an original contribution to the understanding of the relationship between Jewish history and world history. Dark Star approaches Jewish history in a stricktly secular spirit. The Jewish people was not chosen by an invisible entity for any destiny. The Jewish people evolved like any other, and in the course of its evolution, came to play a central role in world history. In particular, Christianity, Islam and Marxism, today the dominant ideologies on a world scale, all grew out of Jewish history in one way or another. Why did Jewish history have such a powerful influence on world history? Why has the Jewish people been subjected to such intense persecution throughout its history? What is the meaning of the birth of Israel for the world today? Dark Star answers these questions in a truthful, accurate and realistic manner..
