This is the definitive response to the rise of a new global anti-Semitism from the head of the Anti-Defamation League. Abraham Foxman delivers a powerful blow to such ideas as "The Israel Lobby" and shows how old stereotypes have taken subtle new forms. He also reveals a disturbing parallel trend: the decline of global Jewish solidarity, which he argues is critical for dealing with current threats. This books carefully considers the intertwined relationship between the U.S. and Israel and delves into the unique position that American Jews find themselves in. Foxman advocates forthright, decisive solutions to an international crisis and helps to balance a fractious debate.
