Blaming Israel only encourages Hamas to repeat its "dead baby strategy .

Blaming Israel only encourages Hamas to repeat its "dead baby strategy," and other terrorist groups to emulate it. This strategy, which has worked effectively, operates as follows: Hamas attacks Israel either by rockets or through tunnels, thereby forcing Israel to respond, as any democracy would do, to protect its citizens. In 2009, I published a short book entitled The Case for Moral Clarity: Israel, Hamas and Gaza. Professor Alan M. Dershowitz of Harvard Law School was described by Newsweek as "the nation's most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights.

Hamas brought about the isolation of Gaza because it is neither interested in peace nor in the welfare of the Palestinian . These op-eds comprised the bulk of my short book, The Case For Moral Clarity: Israel, Hamas and Gaza

Hamas brought about the isolation of Gaza because it is neither interested in peace nor in the welfare of the Palestinian people. Instead, it is fanatically committed to the destruction of Israel itself, a goal it pursues using weapons and funding it receives from the Islamic Republic of Iran, for which Hamas acts as a proxy and whose ambitions of regional domination it serves. More recently, Hamas has also been supported by Qatar and Turkey. These op-eds comprised the bulk of my short book, The Case For Moral Clarity: Israel, Hamas and Gaza. Following the publication of that book, the Goldstone Report was issued under the auspices of a UN fact-finding mission.

Hamas's tactic of playing Russian roulette with the lives of Israeli children by firing thousands of rockets at a million Israelis, while employing human shields in order to maximize Palestinian civilian casualties, is pure evil. The Israeli decision to respond to this unlawful and immoral provocation by targeting the terrorists and their rockets is pure self-defense, authorized by international law, the United Nations Charter and universally accepted moral principles. Yet most of the world remained silent about, and many even supported, the Hamas evil tactic, while most of the world condemned Israel's entirely reasonable response. When the media began to cover this latest war started by Hamas, and Israel's response to it, I noticed a strong media bias against Israel. Sometimes it was quite deliberate, but sometimes it was simply the result of the media's understandable focus on showing dead and injured victims, particularly children. I decided that it was important to present a fuller perspective in the court of public opinion. Accordingly I set out to write a series of Op-Eds, defending Israel s right to protect its citizens by proportional military action. Over the course of the war I published my writings in the Wall Street Journal, The Christian Science Monitor, the Los Angeles Times, the Miami Herald, The New York Times, the Washington Times, The Canada Post, the Huffington Post, the Jerusalem Post, Frontpagemag and other print and online media. I also participated in interviews and debates on CNN and BBC. The response was overwhelming. I received numerous emails and letters imploring me to circulate my views more widely, since the perspective I presented in my writings and appearances was very much a minority view in the media. When cease fires were finally declared, I decided to publish revised and updated versions of these essays and several new ones written especially for this volume in a short book, in order to make them more widely available in an easily accessible format, and to respond to the often erroneous and biased misinformation that passes for objective description. This short book asks why so much of the world has been so morally bankrupt so eyeless in Gaza when it comes to the conflict between Hamas and Israel. Why has there been so little moral clarity over this conflict between good and evil? Why does the media not do a better job of explaining that the dead Palestinian children it shows the world were killed because they were deliberately placed in harm's way by Hamas precisely in order to create these horrible images? Why is a double standard applied to Israeli self-defense actions? Why are the usual standards of criticism not applied to Hamas's double war crimes? Why are there so many more protests and so much more rage when the Israeli Army accidentally kills human shields in defense of its own children than when Muslims murder Muslims in cold blood and in much larger numbers throughout the world? Why is terrorism justified by so many only when it is directed at Israeli civilians? Why is so much of the world so wrong when it comes to Israel?

We need this kind of clarity to separate emotions obscuring the legal and moral criticism by Hamas fighters who cannot seem to operate as modern--and ethical and legal--fighting force.

great read

I have read (and in some cases) purchased several of Alan's books. The latest on the Gaza war of 2009 puts quite a few facts in perspective, and provides some good pithy and easily assembled responses to the usual run of mis-informed critics. While repetitive, given that is a series of articles all written for different audiences, it nevertheless provides some new facts in each article. The length of the book is a result of a lot of white space at the end of some articles, and this is regrettable in some ways. Having said this, the latest Dershowitz offering does provide an way to read summary of the key issues and answers. Whuile I do not share all his moral views on other social issues, Dershowitz does provide a good rationale and moral explanation for Israel's actions. In short, a must read for those interested in Israeli and Middle East affairs.

This is not a newly written book, but rather a collection of several of professor Dershowitz's articles on the Israel-Palestine conflict published in newspapers, internet blogs etc. And it's a very thin book, only some 80 pages. However, it is well written and always to the point. Professor Dershowitz is always well informed and nearly always draws a conclusion with which it is hard to believe that anyone would fundamentally disagree. The main exception to this rule is that he seems a little too much inclined to call people antisemites. He does not, however, brand everyone who is critical to Israel as an antisemite, far from it - and most people called antisemites by Dershowitz probably are. This book (like all other "The case for" books by professor Dershowitz) should be read by everyone who takes an interest in the Israel-Palestine conflict.

I just finished reading this book and I loved it. I found it informative and stimulating. It gave me food for thought.
He is a very good source if you want to know what is going on in Israel.

Professor Dershowitz provides a clear and thoughtful analysis of many current aspects of the Arab/Israeli conflict. This is a collection of previously written letters, essays, and debates. But they all are quite recent (mostly 2009) and applicable to the recent fighting in Gaza. Dershowitz clearly shows that there is no moral equivalence between the Israeli and the Arabs positions. The Arabs are using the methods of terrorism and committing crimes against humanity. Israeli is making extraordinary efforts to avoid harming civilians and is being inappropriately blamed for the Arab civilian casualties.

Dershowitz clearly favors Israel but I believe that his statements are, by and large, factual and unbiased. As another reviewer noted, he may use the term "antisemite" too broadly. Also, I think he lumps too much into the term "hard left." But this is not supposed be a book about the nuances of the extreme left wing position. It would take a much longer book to dissect the psychology, motives, and methods of various academics who persistently distort the facts to place not only Israel, but the United States and other democratic countries and institutions in a bad light. For a short text, this give an amazingly clear and understandable, not to mention, accurate picture of the current Arab/Israeli conflict.

Yet another piece of pro-Israel propaganda meant to obfuscate a complex issue and place blame solely on the shoulders of the Palestinians. I'd recommend "A Very Short Introduction" to the Arab-Israeli conflict for those lacking backing, then move on to Ilan Pappe, Reza Aslan and Khalid Harub for a more accurate portrayal of Hamas and the ongoing war between the IDF and the al Qassam Brigades.
I must admit I didn't like the format of this one: A series of articles rather than a true novel. But the words need to be said, and Dershowitz has done a great job yet again.
