Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz’s detailed and penetrating analysis of the issues that fuel the continuing war in Israel should be read by everyone interested in reaching a fair conclusion as to how the tragic conflict should be ended.

Every charge leveled by Israel’s opponents is dealt with lucidly and convincingly by one of the nation’s brightest legal minds and most effective advocates. This is not a defense of every Israeli policy or action, but of its basic right to exist, to protect its citizens from terrorism, and to defend its borders from hostile enemies.
