In The Case for Peace , Dershowitz identifies twelve geopolitical barriers to peace between Israel and Palestine-and 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.

In the sequel to "The Case for Israel", the author makes a strong case that peace is possible between Israel and Palestine. He reviews Bill Clinton's proposal in 2000 that gave Arafat 95% of what he wanted but was still rejected. He discusses many of the sticking points, including the separation barrier, settlements, and how Palestine can be an effective country despite two exclavated units (the West Bank and Gaza). He heaps scorn on not just those who claim to be the "true" Palestinians, but also those who claim to be "more Israeli" - including some hyperactive televangelists who refuse to recognize Jews are still bound by their own covenant and don't have to cowtow to Jesus. He goes after the "boycott, divestment, sanctions" movement that has swept university campuses across the free world, and finally goes after his most avowed enemies, not the least of which is Noam Chomsky. Years after its publication, it's still the definitive book on the subject. And it mourns a lost opportunity - for even Prince Bandar told Arafat he made the biggest mistake of his life and his decision would only destabilize the Middle East further which is exactly what happened.
