In The Case for Peace, Dershowitz identifies twelve geopolitical barriers to peace between Israel and Palestineâand explains how to move around them and push the process forward. From the division of Jerusalem and Israeli counterterrorism measures to the security fence and the Iranian nuclear threat, his analyses are clear-headed, well-argued, and sure to be controversial. According to Dershowitz, achieving a lasting peace will require more than tough-minded negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians. In academia, Europe, the UN, and the Arab world, Israel-bashing and anti-Semitism have reached new heights, despite the recent Israeli-Palestinian movement toward peace. Surveying this outpouring of vilification, Dershowitz deconstructs the smear tactics used by Israel-haters and shows how this kind of anti-Israel McCarthyism is aimed at scuttling any real chance of peace.

What I did not like about the book is that a large proportion of it is devoted to a rebuttal to critics of his previous book, The Case for Israel, in which Dershowitz defends himself from accusations of plagiarism, poorly-cited material, and other textual matters. I understand his desire to defend himself, but I don't think this was the book for it. Also, since the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is such a charged issue, these sections of the book actually made me more suspect that Dershowitz is in fact more partisan and less transparent than he presents himself, which is probably the exact opposite consequence he would want from people reading his book.
The case Mr. Dershowitz makes for peace is a strong one and valid. Unlike many others in today's world, Mr. Dershowitz knows what he is talking about and does not merely spew words that give the appearance of validity. Peace is something that is easily attained if desired. Unfortunately, most people in our "civilized" world do not want peace. It will never cease to amaze me that with all the Muslim States in the Middle East that one sole Jewish State can be attacked indiscriminately and denied a similar right to peaceably co-exist. שָׁלוֹם
