Amazon Dust Cover:
Seven weeks before the 1979 siege of the American Embassy in Iran, a young American fell into a life-threatening ordeal of torture and brutality, secretly held hostage by our alleged ally, the State of Israel.
Nightmare in Israel is Scott Roston's own account of the gross violations of human rights committed by Israeli officials. Enticed by a member of the Israeli government, Scott and his parents moved to the "Holy Land" with promises of assistance in opening a health clinic. Unbeknownst to the Rostons, however, the government official luring them to Israel was involved in high-level international crimes.
Once in Israel, the friendly voice and attitude changed drastically. Scott and his family were to find out how America's "friend" teats its guests. Thrust into unsuitable accommodations with no choice of their own, the Rostons find themselves swept away by the flow of bureaucracy. No complaints can be aired with any success; no action can turn the tide. Finally, a chain of bizarre, darkly fascinating events leads Scott into the true nightmare: He is framed for a crime he didn't commit, falsely arrested, and unjustly imprisoned. With the thought of escape driving him on, Scott discovers what really goes on in the name of justice in Israel and exposes the brutality of countless Americans, Arabs, and others - revealing the criminal violations of human rights which Amnesty International has been trying to prove for years!
