The New York Times bestselling author of The Case for Israel takes on the greatest threats faced by Israel today

In addition to Hamas, which provoked the recent war and Gaza with its rocket attacks on Israeli civilians, Alan Dershowtiz argues that Israel's most dangerous enemies include Jimmy Carter and other western leaders who would delegitimize Israel as an apartheid regime subject to the same fate as white South Africans; Israel's academic enemies, led by professors Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer, who would accuse supporters of Israel of dual loyalty and indeed disloyalty to America; and Iran, led by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, which threatens Israel by its development of nuclear weapons, which it has publicly threatened to use against the Jewish state.

  • Persuasively argues that Jimmy Carter and other enemies of Israel are also enemies of peace, imperiling not only Israel but the rest of the world
  • Sparks controversy and lively discussion across the entire spectrum of opinion on the Middle East
  • Passionate and outspoken: "As always when Israel needs to be defended . . . Alan Dershowitz speaks with great passion and personal courage."-Elie Wiesel

Alan Dershowitz is at his outspoken, thought-provoking best in The Case Against Israel's Enemies , changing both the tone and the focus of the debate about Israel's adversaries at a time when the future existence of Israel is increasingly imperiled.

Although not as good as ¿The Case for Israel,¿ this follow-up is still well written and informative. The drawback is that Dershowitz does make the Middle East debate a bit too personal in this book. Still I do recommend it as Dershowitz, as always, makes a strong case based on documented facts.

The problem with all books on politics is that they quickly grow out of date, even if they are less than a year old. But I would call the reader¿s attention to chapters 5 and 6, one dealing with terrorism and the other with Iranian President Ahmadinejad. Here in the opening weeks of the Obama administration, the arguments, facts and cases presented in these two chapters are highly relevant.

Dershowitz¿ views are always of interest. They are especially informative for students of Middle East policy.

As usual Dershowitz does an excellent job of laying out and then demolishing many of the arguments raised by Israel's opponents. Moreover, unlike his The Case for Israel, the premises Dershowitz raises here stand independent of one another and the facts upon which he rests his argument are much less nebulous, thus making his case much more straightforward. I just wish I could find a way to convince more of Israel's opponents (or even those who don't know much about the subject) to read books like this one. In particular, anyone who read Jimmy Carter's Peace Not Apartheid should definitely read Dershowitz's book.
