Reviews

Provides an arsenal of logistical and moral arguments stressing that not only is Israel's occupation over another people a threat to the Zionist dream and American interests in the region, but that it also runs counter to rabbinic values Ben-Ami's analysis of the American Jewish vote and his fervent plea for a new voice reads like a compelling last call. "The Washington Post" A clarion call for American reasonableness in the Middle East With the Arab Spring, the United States has a chance for a new beginning in the region. But that will require Washington to adopt a more balanced policy. Maybe, just maybe, J Street will help create the political space to enable that to happen. "Nick Kristof, The New York Times" "A New Voice for Israel" is a gripping family story, a shrewd analysis of American and Mideast politics and a rousing call to action. Most of all it is a book animated by deep love of Israel. I defy anyone to read it with an open mind and believe otherwise. "Peter Beinart, Senior Political Writer, The Daily Beast" The author convincingly establishes his case that a two-state solution may be the only way to preserve Israel as a democratic homeland for the Jews Certain to provoke strong reactions from supporters and detractors, this is a must-read for anyone with a stake--or even an interest--in this difficult issue. "Kirkus" Argues for nuance rather than rigidity Most important, Ben-Ami rejects the luxury of pessimism, the laziness of giving up on Israeli-Palestinian peace. His idealism consists not in idealizing Israel (or vilifying it) but of working to make it a better place. "Gershom Gorenberg, The American Prospect" Jeremy Ben-Ami has articulated a clear-sighted, important argument for why it is time to rewrite the 'rulebook' that governs the conversation on Israel. Time is running out on a two-state solution. Ben-Ami issues a clarion call for more focused, determined U.S. efforts to promote peace between Israel and the Palestinians before it is no longer possible. A refreshing, must read for anyone who wants to understand the dilemmas facing American Jewry as it wrestles with what its role should be in Israel's future. "Janine Zacharia, former Jerusalem Bureau Chief, Washington Post" "A New Voice for Israel" is a must-read for every Jew who, like me, struggles with balancing her devotion to the state of Israel with her moral and political values. Before being inspired by Mr. Ben-Ami's example, I had become one of his Generation Oy, ' my discomfort with right-wing Israeli governments and even more conservative American Jewish organizations alienating me from the country itself. Jeremy Ben-Ami has provided me with a blueprint on how to be a Zionist in the twenty-first century, without compromising my commitment to human rights and democratic values. "Ayelet Waldman, author of Red Hook Road and Bad Mother" This seamless blend of Israeli history, American/Jewish politics, family memoir, and J Street's vision culminates in a rousing call for change in the U.S. approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. "A New Voice for Israel" is both a compelling personal narrative and a must read for all who care about peace and security in the Middle East. "Letty Cottin Pogrebin, former president, Americans for Peace Now and author of Deborah, Golda and Me" Ben-Ami speaks with honesty and trenchancy about how American Jews think, hope, and organize. He shows why a democratic Israel needs peace, indeed, that democracy is a peace process without end. "A New Voice For Israel," in its disarmingly truthfulness, explains why J Street is not only changing Americans politics but Jewish identity as well. "Bernard Avishai, the author of The Hebrew Republic""
