About Can We Talk About Israel? A Guide for the Curious, Confused, and Conflicted (Click here to purchase)
"Can’t you just explain the Israel situation to me in 10 minutes or less?" This is the question Daniel Sokatch is asked on an almost daily basis as the head of the New Israel Fund, an organization dedicated to equality and democracy for all Israelis, not just Jews. Can We Talk About Israel? is an attempt to grapple with a century-long struggle between two peoples that both perceive themselves as victims. And, it’s an attempt to explain why Israel, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, inspires such extreme feelings. Complete with engaging illustrations by Christopher Noxon, Can We Talk About Israel? is an easy-to-read, penetrating, and original look at the history and basic contours of one of the most complicated conflicts in the world.
