Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

The explicit intent of this confrontational book is to intellectually engage prominent "enemies of Israel" in "the open marketplace of ideas." Harvard law professor Dershowitz (The Case for Israel) begins with a vehement denunciation of his onetime friend Jimmy Carter, and he concludes with an appendix that systematically refutes many claims advanced in Carter's book Palestine Peace Not Apartheid. Though the former president receives Dershowitz's most thorough criticism, the author also identifies and scrutinizes many other "enemies," from Noam Chomsky and Patrick Buchanan to Hezbollah and the Iranian government. Dershowitz assumes the posture of a litigator, but his deep convictions and previous history with many of the book's subjects lend a more personal tone to his critiques, as Dershowitz himself admits. Chapters on terrorism and Iran, which are less targeted at specific individuals, take a more effective philosophical and historical approach. Despite its stated goal of eliciting further debate on the Israel-Palestine conflict, this provocative book will likely appeal to sympathizers and alienate readers less disposed to its author's positions. (Oct.)

    Informative and Recommended

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