Widely respected as a civil libertarian, legal educator, and defense attorney extraordinaire, Alan M. Dershowitz has also been a passionate though not uncritical supporter of Israel. In this audiobook, he presents an ardent defense of Israel's rights, supported by indisputable evidence. Dershowitz takes a close look at what Israel's accusers and detractors are saying about this war-torn country. He accuses those who attack Israel of international bigotry and backs up his argument with hard facts.

I'm a proud American Liberal and more and more of my liberal friends are staunchly anti-Israel. When we get into conversations their arguments never seem well informed. For example: one didn't even know there was a separation between Gaza and the West Bank politically. A girl friend literally said: "I don't think I can ever visit Israel or another country that oppresses women, I mean they are forced to wear head coverings." I responded: "you mean a secular democracy forces women to wear head covering? How did you get that information?"
I'm finding the worrisome concept that in order to be a good liberal you are expected to be anti-Israel. Not because of any hard factual data to back anything up, but because that's what good modern liberals do - they hate Israeli "Apartheid genocide" of Palestinians that has zero evidence.
Please share this book and hopefully we can dispel these myths.
This is an excellent source to back up real arguments and help enlighten people.
I wonder how many pro-Palestinian people won't touch this book because of the title alone.
My favorite book is 1984.
However the authors premise doesn't support his conclusion. If the facts presented are true, then there will never be a 2 state solution. Don't get me wrong, It's a great idea, but the PLO doesn't even want the Palestinian "refugees" as its citizens in an independent state. That should tell you everything you need to know about having a "partner for peace".
