"The most important book on Israel since Alan Dershowitz's "The Case for Israel"
- Governor Mike Huckabee
Since 1948, Israel has suffered three invasions on multiple fronts, bloody wars with Palestinian militias, and hundreds of terrorist attacks. Yet Israel has emerged with more territory rather than less, while its permanent preparedness for war and the marvel of Israeli innovation has turned it into the most formidable fighting force in the region.
Undeterred, Israel’s enemies have opened a new battle-front: a full-scale political assault on Israel’s legitimacy. The Anti-Israel Agenda reveals how the institutions of greatest moral and political influence including the United Nations, the campus and the Church are being turned against Israel to isolate and cripple the state until it can no longer defend its interests or its people.
Bringing together the finest minds devoted to the Arab-Israeli conflict, including Alan Dershowitz, Alan Johnson, Col. Richard Kemp, and Hillel Neuer, this powerful and timely exposé reveals how the conflict with Israel has shifted from the battlefield to become both a global and local war, fought in the corridors of power, in the media we consume, the campuses we attend, and in every forum that touches our lives. Engrossing and authoritative, The Anti-Israel Agenda is essential to understanding war and conflict it today’s Middle East.
Featuring the leading thinkers devoted to the question of Israel, including Alan Dershowitz, Hillel Neuer, Gerald Steinberg, Colonel Richard Kemp, Professor Alan Johnson, Andrew Tucker, Peter Wertheim, Arsen Ostrovsky, Seth Frantzman, Michael Dickson and more.
