Holding Israel to a Much Stricter Standard
Is this book, Alan Dershowtiz, the Harvard law professor and criminal defense attorney, takes to task those public intellectuals who are holding Israel to a stricter moral standard than any other country. In particular, he criticizes:
• Ex-president Jimmy Carter and his book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, and
• John J. Mearsheimer (professor at the University of Chicago) and Stephen M. Walt (professor at Harvard University) and their book, The Israel Lob...more

The Case Against Israel's Enemies. The Case for Israel. The Case for Peace. The Case for Moral Clarity.

I have an idea: let's pass around a hat for Dershowitz, but instead of putting money in it, let's donate a book title or two to the guy. His imagination clearly isn't keeping apace of his "book"-a-month production.

Deeming Jimmy Carter an enemy of Israel--the man was a U.S. president under whom Israel prospered, for those who have short memories--is akin to deeming David Duke a friend of the J...more

Recommends it for: anyone who wants to know the truth about the Israeli/Palestinian Conflicts
Once again Alan Dershowitz delivers! Just like his previous books on the subjects, he breaks down the statements used by Israel's critics and enemies and uses historical fact to disprove them. He is very rational and the book is well researched.

This book is important to fight the slanderous lies and false perceptions on Israel policy towards the conflict. It is simple, one side is an imperfect Democracy that values life and freedom. The other side are facists that hide behing civiliam population...more
We are living in times of a bottomless hatred of Israel and it's people and friends that is frightening in it's irrational venom.
It certainly resembles the hatred of Nazis for Jews in the 1930s and 40's in it's sheer viciousness, what a Jewish women who witnessed Kristallnacht as a child on that excellent documentary Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West as 'the type of hatred that makes your hear beat faster'.
Liberal Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, describes being attacked by a...more
This is a very powerful book that shows how Israel's enemies have endeavoured to revise history. Dershowitz discusses how being critical of Israel's policies does not necessarily mean one is an anti-Semite. Indeed, Dershowitz has been quite critical of Israel in the past. However, hypocritical, double-standard, revisionist, and demonizing are trademarks of Israel's enemies. Jimmy Carter, Patrick Buchanan, Noam Chomsky, Amnesty International, and the Human Rights Watch are all guilty of lying, do...more

I think Alan Dershowitz does a tremendous job of exposing the hypocrisy of Israel's biggest critics and bringing to light the reality of ignorance of so many of Israel's critics in understanding the seriousness of Israel's security threats.
