The State of Israel vs. the Jews

We rated this book:


This work is translated from French and has received high marks among the European Left for speaking out against Israel’s nation-state law, which has been labeled apartheid against the Palestinians. Originally written during the time of the Trump administration and its cooperative relationship with Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu, the work itself underwent a decided shift after Joe Biden won the presidential election in 2020.

Cypel seethes with moral outrage throughout the book at the hypocritical policies that render second-class citizenship to the Palestinians and label anyone who dissents as anti-Semitic. From the prospective of the Representative Council of Jewish Institutions in France, the very fact that Cypel speaks out at all is unusual.

While well informed, the issue remains in flux as the Biden Administration continues to waffle on both sides of the Middle East dilemma: what to do about Iran’s nuclear threat. Should they or should they not sabotage the political gains made by the Trump administration with Israel? The whole world remains divided on whether or not a duel state solution is viable. What Israel decides might potentially spark international unrest.
