A New Voice for Israel (Hardcover)

A New Voice for Israel (Hardcover)

Many Americans who care about Israel’s future are questioning whether the hard-line, uncritical stances adopted by many traditional pro-Israel advocates really serve the country’s best interests over the long-term. Moderate Jeremy Ben-Ami, founder of J Street, the new pro-Israel, pro-peace political movement, punctures many of the myths that have long guided our understanding of the politics of the American Jewish community and have been fundamental to how pro-Israel advocates have pursued their work including:

• that leaders of established Jewish organizations speak for all
  Jewish Americans when it comes to Israel

• that being pro-Israel means you cannot support creation of
   a Palestinian state

• that American Jews vote for candidates based largely on
   their support of Israel

• that talking peace with your enemies demonstrates
   weakness

• that allying with neoconservatives and evangelical
   Christians is good for Israel and good for the Jewish community.

Ben-Ami, whose grandparents were first-generation Zionists and founders of Tel Aviv, tells the story of his own evolution toward a more moderate viewpoint. He sketches a new direction for both American policy and the conduct of the debate over Israel in the American Jewish community.
