Edward Alexander and Paul Bogdanor - The Jewish Divide over Israel: Accusers and Defenders
Certain to be one of the most stimulating books at this year's Book Fair, THE JEWISH DIVIDE OVER ISRAEL: ACCUSERS AND DEFENDERS is a collection of essays that refutes the criticism of Israel by Jewish writers such as Tony Judt, Noam Chomsky, George Steiner, Daniel Boyarin, Marc Ellis, and Israel Shahak.  According to the writers, after their catastrophic defeat in 1967, Arabs overcame inferiority on the battlefield with superiority in the war of ideas.  Their propaganda stopped trumpeting their desire to eradicate Israel.  Instead, in a calculated appeal to liberals and radicals, they redefined their war of aggression against the Jews as a struggle for the liberation of Palestinian Arabs.  Many Jewish liberals became desperate to escape from the shadow of Israel's alleged misdeeds and found a way to do so by joining other members of the left in blaming Israeli sins for Arab violence.  Co-authors Edward Alexander and Paul Bogdanor firmly support the belief that the foundation of the State of Israel was one of the few redeeming events in the last century, versus the unforgivable sin alleged by its accusers.  The Jerusalem Report hails this book as "a significant statement about the lacerating effects of Jewish self-hatred."
