Hear, O Israel

This collection of essays is a follow up to The Big Lie: On Terror, Antisemitism and Identity. The author brings his insights from a long career as a writer and cultural critic to navigate through the culture wars and geo-political minefields concerning the State of Israel. Drawing on historical, cultural and ideological analysis, he clarifies the role of anti-Semitism in the left’s betrayal of the only liberal democracy in the Middle East. He examines the hostility to Israel from diverse sectors such as nations, non-governmental organizations, unions, and academia – while he unveils the shoddy and sometimes anti-Semitic assumptions lying below the surface of such critics.
