Recently, Jewish voices have begun to warn against a 'new anti-Semitism' fueled by moral concerns about Israel. Opponents have retorted that opposition to 'Zionism' is by no means anti-Semitic. This book, by a non-Jewish analytic philosopher, assesses the relative merits of these opposed views and offers a detailed examination of the moral and intellectual credentials of the widespread current of opinion whose growth underlies both.
Astonishing…a thorough examination of those forms of anti-Israel and anti-Zionist polemic which skirt close to, and frequently cross over into, political anti-Semitism…This is a powerful, explosive book. Read it from cover to cover. Now and again you will need to deploy the arguments it so cogently presents you with, the ones you always knew were there but could not produce for yourself. We needed it. A non-Jew has provided it.
