Publisher's Summary

What is at the core of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? What does justice demand of us in this conflict? This audiobook clarifies an intimidatingly complex issue - and upends conventional views about America’s stake in it.

In this audiobook, Elan Journo explains the essential nature of the conflict and what has fueled it for so long. What justice demands, he shows, is that we evaluate both adversaries - and America's approach to the conflict - according to a universal moral ideal: individual liberty. From that secular moral framework, the audiobook analyzes the conflict, examines major Palestinian grievances and Israel's character as a nation, and explains what's at stake for everyone who values human life, freedom, and progress.

What Justice Demands shows us why America should be strongly supportive of freedom and freedom-seekers - but in this conflict and across the Middle East, it hasn't been, much to our detriment.

It is hard to recognize that the constant left wing narrative has caused a drift even for “right wing” thinkers and the presentation of the facts causes a reorienting back to the truth.

We owe it to truth and objectivity (if that is what we seek), to really speak “ truth to power” ie truth to the powerful misleading propitiatory left wing advocates. This book presents with references, truth. But in the same way it shines a light on appeasement. The way forward must be illuminated by the truth. He illuminates.
