The Current Crisis and What We Must Do About It By Phyllis Chesler (307 Pages)Publisher: Jossey-Bass, 2003
In this intensely passionate and compelling book, Phyllis Chesler demonstrates how old-fashioned anti-Semitism has become newly fashionable, even politically correct, and how this plague threatens the Jews of America, Western civilization, and the world.
A dangerous, worldwide coalition of Islamic terrorists, well-intentioned but profoundly misinformed students, right-wing fascists, left-wing ideologues, pious academics, feminists, opportunistic European politicians, and sensation-seeking international media have joined together to once again blame the Jews and the Jewish state for the current world crisis. Today, lethal activism against the Jews often takes the form of anti-Zionism. The New Anti-Semitism puts forth "a wise and practical agenda . . . that can save progressives from hatred, right-wingers from extremism, and Jews from apathy."
