"Professor Alan Dershowitz highlights the bigotry of a fringe group of extremists who apply a clear double standard to Israel, the only true democracy in the Middle East. Fortunately, their hateful efforts have been a colossal failure. While they spread their lies, Israel has never been more welcomed by the nations of the world. Our economy is booming, our alliances are flourishing. While they scheme to destroy Israel, Israel goes from strength to strength. This is a quintessential example of truth overcoming lies."-Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, on The Case Against BDS
"Alan's book demonstrates not only how the BDS movement singles out one Member State of the international community-Israel-for selective and discriminatory indictment, but how the BDS movement is prejudicial to the cause of peace, to Palestinian right, to academic freedom and integrity, and to the search for truth in a post truth universe. It is a must-read for those who seek a lens into understanding the nature, ideology, and tactics of the BDS movement, and its discriminatory fallout."-Irwin Cotler, former Minister of Justice of Canada
"Using the scalpel of scholarship, Alan Dershowitz strips away the mask of hypocrisy of BDS and reveals its immorality. As the late Senator Patrick Moynihan once said, "Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts" and facts are the material with which Professor Dershowitz builds his case. He is articulate and persuasive in exposing the abuses of BDS advocates engaged on colleges and universities campuses and demonstrates how the proponents of BDS take advantage of the vulnerability of students, faculty and administrators. Dershowitz provides a textbook illuminating dark places in the contemporary American university, as he endeavors to balance peace with justice in the heated Israeli/Palestinian debate."-Stephen Joel Trachtenberg, president emeritus and university professor at The George Washington University.
The world is a very dangerous place for the State of Israel. It is besieged by domestic terrorism, bordered by armies bent on its destruction, and targeted by Iranian missiles capable of raining chemical or nuclear destruction on its cities.
In a never-ending attempt to destroy Israel, Muslim countries, the international Left, and anti-Semites of all political stripes have joined forces to create a worldwide campaign aimed at the complete economic and cultural isolation of the Jewish State. BDS aims to de-legitimize Israel's very existence-barring it from international organizations, cultural exchanges, and global economic activity.
Based on the absurd notion that Israel is equivalent to South Africa under Apartheid, BDS activists portray Israel as a racist and genocidal nation. This fantastical notion is gaining traction, with the potential to cause serious damage to Israel's economy, reputation, and, eventually, security-clearly the aim of BDS proponents.
The Case Against BDS is a must-read for all people of goodwill who support Israel's right to exist. Only by shining sunlight on the shady origins and dishonest methods of BDS can we hope to defeat it.
