Throughout the book, we gain an understanding of the connotations of “our American Israel.” Quoting the author, “Israel can be seen through American eyes as a model of liberation from persecution, and imperial proxy doing the bidding of a superpower, a unifying object of affection, or the exclusive possession of a particular group.”Cited by: 2.

Book. Literally my face upon completion: You want to feel this way whilst reading a true crime, don't you??. Quite honestly, this was by far the most disturbing book that I read in October.

The Israeli journalist Ari Shavit acknowledges as much in his magisterial book-length essay on Israel and its troubled history, “ My Promised Land.” He. Kaplan’s perspective as a scholar of American studies provides the key insight of this book: that the United States’ affinity for Israel has less to do with American Jewish activism than with deep cultural forces that have manifested themselves on both the left and the right over the years.

International affairs professor Dov Waxman thinks otherwise. In his new book, "Trouble in the Tribe: The American Jewish Conflict over Israel," Waxman argues that American Jewish disagreement about and discontent with Israel “is not just a reaction to events six thousand miles away in Israel and Palestine,” but rather “reflects broader shifts in the American Jewish community.”Author: Raphael Magarik.

From Genesis to Revelation: a well-argued study of the place of Israel in American culture. In the zombie apocalypse, as Brad Pitt so vividly learned in the film version of World War Z, always have an Israeli soldier at your side, and preferably “a buff Israeli woman soldier who is a symbol of Israeli feminism and modernity.”Even if feminism and modernity are in retreat in the United.

The Life of an American Jew in Racist Marxist Israel Written in by Jack Bernstein A CHALLENGE. THE CONTENTS OF THIS BOOK ARE EXPECTED TO BRING A STRONG REACTION FROM THE ZIONIST JEWS. I am well aware of the tactics of you, my Zionist brethren, use to quiet anyone who attempts to expose any of your subversive acts.

The book continues with impressions and interpretations of what an American sees visiting Israel, and leads into specific scenes on the street, in stores and government offices, and finally, in the workplace. Covers Americans working and doing business in Israel, as well as Israelis representing their companies in by: THIS BOOK, although written in English and addressed to people living outside the State of Israel, is, in a way, a continuation of my political activities as an Israeli Jew.

Those activities began in with a protest which caused a considerable scandal at the time: File Size: KB. The title of Kaplan’s book is extremely telling: This is a story of how a national and colonial settler project in a distant and seemingly exotic part.

Beinart’s essay (expanded into a book, The Crisis of Zionism, in ) was essentially a plea to the American Jewish community to back the Obama administration’s efforts.

Yes, Beinart was saying, unlike in earlier decades, Israel had the means to protect itself militarily. A face covering is required while flying on American, except for young children or anyone with a condition that prevents them from wearing one.

You also may be required by local law to wear one in the airport where your trip begins, where it ends or where you connect. Israeli-American novelist and poet Moriel Rothman-Zecher explores similar themes in “Sadness Is a White Bird,” revealing the agonizing internal.

But according to Mintz, whose new book, “The Polythink Syndrome,” deals with recent U.S. policy in the Middle East, Israelis are skeptical of American intentions — except when it comes to Author: Naomi Zeveloff. It is known sometimes as the Traveler's Book, or the Memory Book, or the Israeli Book, because it depends mostly on Israelis—that new diaspora of young travelers who, with a Author: Patrick Symmes.

The book is not meant to be a comprehensive treatise on what divides American and Israeli Jews, but a signpost showing the way out of the stilted debate of the present day toward something deeper.

All these exceptions were true of Israel Keyes, the subject of Maureen Callahan’s riveting book “American Predator.” AD And Keyes had something else going for him: He barely left a trace.

The bottom drops out of your heart early in “American Predator,” long before an unsparing account of the rape, murder and dismemberment of year-old Samantha Koenig. Serial killers like Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer are mostly well known to the general public, but one serial killer, Israel Keyes, an organized and well-traveled predator, is.

American Jews, for the most part, remain firmly in the liberal camp. There is not, however, a divide between Israel and American Orthodox Jews, who remain very attached to Israel and are supportive of the Netanyahu government.

There is an ahistorical attitude that looks at the honeymoon period after as the norm. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the world's major sources of instability. Americans are directly connected to this conflict, and increasingly imperiled by its devastation.

It is the goal of If Americans Knew to provide full and accurate information on this critical issue, and on. [1] In Israel it is typically called "the Jewish lobby," perhaps reflective of the fact that today virtually all the mainstream Jewish organizations in the U.S., both religious and secular – the ADL, Jewish Federations, Jewish Community Relations Councils, the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, Jewish Studies departments, Hillels, etc – advocate for Israel.
