The Politics of Anti-Semitism

Click here to purchase.

What constitutes genuine anti-Semitism–Jew hatred–as opposed to disingenuous, specious charges of “anti-Semitism” hurled at realistic, rational appraisals of the state of Israel’s political, military and social conduct?

There’s no more explosive topic in American public life today than the issue of Israel, its treatment of Palestinians and its influence on American politics.

Yet the topic is one that is so hedged with anxiety, fury and fear, that honest discussion is often impossible.

The Politics of Anti-Semitism lifts this embargo.
