In this long-awaited follow-up to his bestselling Holocaust Industry Norman G. Finkelstein assesses recent claims that widespread anti-Semitism informs criticism of the state of Israel, provocatively suggesting that the controversy surrounding the question is contrived by apologists and based on fabricated evidence. Systematic research shows this to be true in all cases, including that of Alan Dershowitz's bestseller The Case for Israel.
Examining the genuine scholarship on the history of Israel, he finds that there exists a consensus among serious historians and human rights experts on the factual record, a consensus which shows conclusively that Israel's human rights record is illegal and shameful for any state with a pretence to democracy, and that well-known public intellectuals have resorted to the promulgation of known untruths in its defence. These facts, supported by exemplary research and scholarship, will be unpalatable for many, but must be universally recognised for there to be any chance of a just and lasting peace in the area.
