Danny Danon has been a vocal opponent of disengaging in the Gaza Strip and West bank, and transforming the stalemate “two state/one state” dialogue to include regional partners, at times standing in direct opposition to his own party’s leadership. A well-known and frequent speaker in the global arena, he is the rising voice for a fresh movement toward nationalism among the generation of Israelis currently coming to power. Here, Danon shares this vision with the world. It is a bold and uncompromising stance ...
Danny Danon has been a vocal opponent of disengaging in the Gaza Strip and West bank, and transforming the stalemate “two state/one state” dialogue to include regional partners, at times standing in direct opposition to his own party’s leadership. A well-known and frequent speaker in the global arena, he is the rising voice for a fresh movement toward nationalism among the generation of Israelis currently coming to power. Here, Danon shares this vision with the world. It is a bold and uncompromising stance in the face of attacks on Israel's sovereignty by other Middle Eastern nations as the United States sends mixed signals of support to further its own goals in the region. Danon dissects the missteps and wrong turns that Israel's politicians have taken in the past by working to appease the United States and not offend their neighbors, instead of prioritizing their nation's own viability. With electrifying zeal, he tackles the challenges Israel faces today to undo what he sees as a consequence brought on by years of acquiescence to US policy. Danon believes “US pressure on Israel is hurting Israel and will do nothing to advance peace,” and he is not afraid to sever the close bond between the United States and Israel if it means peace for his homeland.
Danon leads the charge toward a victorious future with an invitation for the United States and the Middle East to participate in, and not just dictate, Israel's international relations and policies (as opposed to an Israel cuckolded with an endless array of caveats toward those who would see it fall). No stranger to controversy, Danon's unabashed insights are a welcome revelation in the current quagmire of Middle-East international relations. A leading speaker to both Jewish groups and Christian Conservatives, the Los Angeles Times says “What Danny says is what Bibi is actually thinking.” For Danny Danon, this is only the beginning.
“Danny Danon has written an important and tough book about Israel’s situation in the world today. Though I fundamentally disagree with many of his proposals, especially with regard to the West Bank and the two state solution, his is a voice of an emerging young leader whose views must be considered. It is written with passion and deep love for his country and is part of an important debate whose resolution will affect the entire Middle East, if not the world. Read it, argue with it, disagree with it—but don’t ignore it.”—Alan Dershowitz, Harvard law professor and author
“Deputy Speaker Danny Danon, a leading thinker and voice in Israeli politics, has written a book that offers a new way forward for the U.S. and Israel. By passionately calling for a partnership rooted in respect and strength, instead of patronizing calls for more concessions, Danon makes us look at the future of this special relationship in a whole new way.”—Glenn Beck, #1 New York Times bestselling author and founder of GBTV
“A well-crafted and persuasive case, based on both historical experience and reason, that we should abandon land-for-peace for a whole new approach toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The Palestinians have made their jihadist bed. Now, Danon essentially says, let them lie in it.”—R. James Woolsey, chairman of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies; former director of Central Intelligence
"Of all the incendiary books that have been written about Israel over the last year or so, none is quite as fiery as Israel: The Will to Prevail." —Jonathan Kirsch, Jewish Journal
"[One] Likud politician makes no effort to hide where his political allegiance lies in the US election: The man who has been called 'the Republican representative in the Knesset,' MK Danny Danon...Called Israel: The Will to Prevail, [Danon's] book has a message about the need for Jerusalem to make its own decisions that is very timely, thanks to the international debate over the handling of the effort to prevent Iran's nuclearization." —Gil Hoffman, The Jerusalem Post
“Though Danon is in his first term in the Knesset, his profile is rising quickly on the Israeli political scene—perhaps more than anything else because of his unapologetically nationalist vision for Israel’s future…Danon outlines his blueprint for Israel’s future in…Israel: The Will to Prevail.” –Uriel Heilman, Jewish Telegraphic Agency
“It is that will to break the silence that is clearly reflected in Danon’s newly released, refreshingly honest, groundbreaking book, Israel: The Will to Prevail…I find it impressive that this young 40-year politician has written a book which has the potential to make waves, and allow people to understand what nationalist Israeli politics looks like. Danon is an ideologue, a man who has spent his entire life fighting for the Jewish people—and this comes across clearly in his writing…The book reflects past, present, and future…Danon is a rising star of his party and I believe that his book is necessary reading for those who are interested in the Middle East and the State of Israel.” –Ronn Torossian, The Algemeiner

Mr. Danon has made a significant contribution to the conversation about peace, Israel, and the Middle East. Even those who hold entrenched views on Israel will find much in the book to think about - the author's ability to effectively link key historical events to the position Israel finds itself in today gives readers a fresh look at the past and places it in relevant context. Danon's long term view of a workable peace process may be difficult for some to envision, but the author also makes a convincing case to see the "three state solution" as a viable and humane pathway to conciliation in the region - one that is worth working hard to achieve no matter how long it takes. I recommend the book to anyone who cares about the future of Israel.

Short book but long on information. Need to read it slowly and then read it again and take notes. I am 70 and learned way more from this book than I ever learned about this topic in school.

Look up a reputable map of 1946 or 1947 from the Middle Eastern region... no Israel, only Palestine. Look up a map dated a few years later, suddenly Israel shows up. Palestine has been Palestine forever. Palestine throws rocks at it's invaders and Israel, backed by the United States, fires rockets. The Israeli people elected a war criminal (from the Lebanon 7-day war) as Prime Minister yet cry and bemoan the way Israelis are treated. Tell the truth, Israel!!! You overtake land which is not yours and kill Arabs for the simple reason that hate fills your hearts!!!
