Title: The Case For Israel

Title: The Case For Israel
Author: Alan Dershowitz
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons, Hoboken, NJ

Presenting this subject from a positive point of view in The Jewish Press is akin to ‘preaching to the choir,’ but Prof. Dershowitz brings his many years of legal training and expertise – and a
lifetime of involvement with the Zionist cause – to bear on the subject.

This slim volume (as opposed to some of his lengthier, non-fiction works) contains the answers to every accusation of the likes of the Edward Saids, Noam Chomskys and Vanessa Redgraves of the world, with their constant anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist invectives and expletives.

Dershowitz knows his Zionist, mid-Eastern and world history down pat; fully presents the common accusatory references to Israel on the world scene, and conveniently supplies us with proper answers to the demagogues who would indict all Israelis and Jews as well as others who would support their right to exist.

The book answers many common canards, notably:

* Did European Jews displace Palestinians?

* Is terrorism merely part of a cycle of violence?

* Was the U.N. Partition Plan unfair to Palestinians?

* Has Israel’s ‘victimization’ of the Palestinian been the primary cause of the Arab-Israeli conflict?

* Why have more Palestinians than Israelis been killed?

Like the good lawyer he is, Dershowitz clearly and fully documents his case, and his hard-hitting writing is perfectly clear and non-pontifical. The author has been an ardent although not
uncritical supporter of Israel, and he asserts that those who single out Israel for one-sided criticism are themselves guilty of a form of bigotry.

Israel is a democracy where even members of its Arab minority have their vote and say in governmental affairs. There exists NO Arab state in which its residents have unfettered political rights, and there are few Western nations in which its citizens have as much freedom of expression as Israelis are accustomed to exercising.

The renown of the author has encouraged the publisher to print an enormous first edition of over 150,000 copies, which will be in bookstores this Fall, and the book certainly has a place in the home library of every Jew who seeks his/her own responses to the common canards, lies and untruths our enemies constantly insinuate upon us.
