Audible Editor Reviews

Discussing West Bank border tensions, two high-profile Jewish scholars trade policy jabs, betraying their deeper philosophical differences in the process. Israeli politician Natan Sharansky argues that regardless of Hamas’ electoral successes, Israel cannot pursue West Bank disengagement while faced with a Palestine that condones terrorist tactics and enforces oppressive, anti-democratic domestic policies. Conversely, prominent American lawyer Alan Dershowitz proposes that Israel must begin to disentangle itself from Gaza, and allow the electoral process to play out. Dershowitz acknowledges this approach may be costly in the short term, but suggests it presents better long-term prospects for peace and meaningful democracy. Both argue that Israel must continue to utilize aggressive counterterrorist tactics as long as the Palestinian Authority tolerates unchecked terrorist activities.
