Jewish voices challenge the crude polarities of the Israel/Palestine debate.
The grave situation in the Middle East threatens the future of both Israelis and Palestinians, as well as the stability of the whole region. In this urgent new book, leading Jewish writers and commentators sweep aside the atmosphere of bigotry and vilification which stymies intelligent discussion at every turn, to deliver a bold and richly nuanced exploration of Israel and Zionism today. A Time To Speak Out
covers the Holocaust, varieties of Zionism, self-hatred, the multiplicity of Jewish identities, human rights and anti-Zionist traditions. In doing so, it reflects the background and the complexities of the situation, as well as the range of voices, outside and within Israel, which are so rarely articulated in the mainstream media. At once sober and radical, A Time To Speak Out
reclaims an often-hysterical debate for people more interested in morally defensible solutions than empty "victories."
