My Israel Question
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0522852688, Paperback)
A fearless look at the Israel–Palestine conflict, this study investigates how large a factor Zionism plays in this intractable conflict. Spanning the globe from New York and London to Paris and Melbourne, this source discusses Israel–Palestine issues that stem from suicide bombings, military aggressions, and passionate public debates by Holocaust survivors, Zionist organizations, Arab advocates, newspaper columnists, and politicians. This study also considers the historical rationale for Zionism, including the centuries of virulent European anti-Semitism from which it grew, and asks how relevant and sustainable Zionism is in the 21st century.

AU Author. The undeclared war in Israel/Palestine is the abiding conflict of our era, with little apparent hope of resolution despite years of peace talks. On one side of the conflict, Israel asserts the right of the Jewish state to exist in Palestine. On the other, the Palestinian people struggle, some peacefully, some violently, for survival. In 'My Israel Question', a young Australian Jew, Antony Loewenstein, asks how much Zionism - the ideology of Jewish nationalism - is to blame for this intractable conflict. He fearlessly investigates the ways in which the Jewish diaspora in Australia and elsewhere have campaigned on Israel's behalf, in the media and in political and business spheres. He also considers the historical rationale for Zionism and asks how relevant twentieth-century Zionism is today.
