I question people who would say “They’re both wrong” without holding both sides to a previously-agreed-upon set of me and deciding from there. Dershowwitz just say something is biased, or that “they’re both wrong” without offering a reasonable argument as to why, just sounds rather elementary and doesn’t really benefit anyone.
Look at Jordan’s laws Is this fair or just? This is a must-read for anyone who wants to learn more about the historical origins and facts behind the Arab-Israeli conflict. As history has shown time and time again, hate crimes and racism have never been solved by ignoring them or pretending they don’t exist. This book takes a major step in the right direction by talking about the facts in a realistic way, and in their alann context.
Plus, he de-bunks many of the myths put forward by the usual agenda-driven propagandists whose bibliographies and references are typically suspiciously skimpy Said, Chomsky, etc. Just because many Palestinian propagandists do not care for historical facts, does not mean peaceful world citizens have to resign themselves to ignorance, as many propagandists wish they would. Dershowitz’s books there is a follow-up to this one provide a good place to start for scholars who are new to the subject, or anyone just curious about learning more about this pivotal region.
Apparently anticipating reader skepticism on this highly-sensitive subject, Dershowitz footnotes everything he writes, directing readers to government, British Mandate, and UN documents, maps, and historical compilations by world-renowned historians. If you are a scientific-minded person who prefers iseael facts to proaganda, this book is worth your time.
Peace can only be achived once more world citizens begin to understand the reality of dedesa is and has been going on in the Middle East for centuries. View all 13 akan. Jan 23, Pamela Olson rated it did not like it. As someone who had spent time in Palestine and Israel mostly PalestineI received this book with an open mind, interested to learn more about the “other side” and find out more about the thought processes of people who had different opinions and experiences than I did.
Unfortunately this book was worse than useless. We can all have our own opinions. We can’t just make up our own facts. Sadly, this book is incredibly mendacious, based on little more than lies, distortions, and racism.
It is an As someone who had spent time in Deershowitz and Israel mostly PalestineI received this book with an open mind, interested to learn more about the “other side” and find out more about the thought processes of people who had different opinions and experiences than I did.
It is an embarrassment that it got published, much less widely distributed. It was slan out for free on the Defes campus by a “pro-Israel” student organization — that’s how I got a copy. It serves only to propagandize people who are too uninformed to know any better. If you want to know more about Israel, or Palestine, or the situation in the region, please look elsewhere.
The Case for Israel by Alan M. Dershowitz
This is a waste of time. It’s pretty clear by now that Alan Dershowitz is a pathological liar, so the quality of this book isn’t all that surprising. Vagabond of Letters Great review.
Jun 03, Kristoffer I have read this book, and cannot understand how you choose to label this as racist, as it clearly it not? Also, you state that it is based on lies bu I have read this book, and cannot understand how you choose to label this as racist, as it clearly it not? Also, you state that it is based on lies but the author provides citations for every claim made in this book.
It is one thing to defesaa with the politics of Israel or Palestine, but that does not derrshowitz you should use such derogatory language towards anyone just because you disagree with their opinions. It is rude behavior. Nov 18, Rick rated it did not like it. A laughably bad book. Instead of this pile of tosh of afterwards if you’ve already had isael misfortune to read it try Norman Finkelstein’s “Beyond Chutzpah” which exposes Dershowitz’s cynical distortion dershoqitz the truth, wholesale misrepresentations and unacknowledged reliance on the work of others.
Its bestseller status probably should include an asterisk because, as Finkelstein notes, some American Jewish organizations and the Israeli government bought bulk orders of the book to use as part of their efforts to advance Israel’s case.
Nothing could be better evidence, in my opinion, of the corrosive influence of the Israel lobby on the intellectual climate of our country than how the nation’s leading university allowed such a book to pollute our national discourse on one of the most important issues facing American foreign policy.
Aug 15, Jill Hutchinson rated it really liked it Shelves: Most of us are familiar with the author who is one of the country’s foremost attorneys and defender of individual liberties. He is also one damn good author. In this book, Dershowitz utilizes his legal skills to argue dershowitzz the existence of the state of Israel through the posing of 32 questions about Israel.
He refutes the isfael, slanders, and misrepresentations that have been leveled at Israel in recent years by its venomous critics. The questions chapters range from “Has Israel engaged in geno Most of us are ddefesa with the author who is one of the country’s foremost attorneys and defender of individual liberties.
The questions chapters range from “Has Israel engaged in genocide against Palestinian civilians” to “Have the Jews Exploited the Holocaust”. The book is pro-Palestinian as well as pro-Israel as Dershowitz favors an economically viable Palestinian democratic state although he argues that Palestine has missed many chances to attain this by their desire to destroy the Jewish homeland rather than co-exist.
Granted, ddefesa book is biased toward Israel as you would expect but the author is at the top of his game with his arguments. A very thoughtful and well-written book.

The book is needed because “The new anti-Semitism” has been defined as people who will accept a world with Jews but not a world with Israel. Dershowitz is a mainstream liberal and not an egghead like Noam Chomsky or Norman Finklestein.
As a trained lawyer, Dershowitz knows that he must be careful with his facts. What I found most helpful is an appendix where he states what are legitimate disagreements about Israeli policy dershowifz what constitutes closet anti-Semi Of course the author has his biases. What I found most helpful is an appendix where he states what are legitimate disagreements about Israeli policy and what constitutes closet anti-Semitism.
For example, I am opposed to the settlements but I would never suggest that Israel enter into a suicide pact. Apr 30, Christopher St rated it liked it Shelves: Some of the criticism of this book is spot on. Dershowitz chooses a strange tactic to make his “case”, which is actually centered on refuting points made by the most extreme academic critics of Israel. Some would argue the case could be written from the standpoint of Plaintiff. I’ll start with drrshowitz criticisms and end on a positive note with how this book is still well-worth reading.
The book is divided into 32 argumen Some of the criticism of this book is spot on. The book is divided into 32 arguments made against Israel, refuted by the author. This makes it a quick and easy read, with very few arguments exceeding 10 pages. The problem is that for each argument Dershowitz tends to respond with the same set of 5 or so responses, which do not always directly answer the anti-israeli point.
I heard these 5 arguments so many times about 32 times eachthat I can easily and will sum them up at the end dreshowitz this review. The strategy of using the words of “fierce critics of Israel” as support for Dershowitz’ own case backfired in some cases.
Some of the quotes and points made were taken wildly out of context, which is not persuasive even for someone who wants to believe the point.
