AJC issues new publication explaining Arab-Israeli conflict

David Harris, AJC

AJC today issued a new publication, Israel and the Arab-Israeli Conflict: A Brief Guide for the Perplexed, written by Executive Director David Harris. The 28-page pamphlet—also available as a pdf online—provides a clear and concise picture of Israel's ongoing struggle for peace and security in a tumultuous region that all too often has denied the very legitimacy of a Jewish state.

Harris, explaining the need for this publication, said, "Unfortunately, some in the media, certain political and intellectual circles, and a number of influential voices on campuses pay insufficient attention to the actual history of the conflict, minimize Arab rhetoric and deep-seated attitudes, and reflexively make Israel out to be the villain of the story. Israel and the Arab-Israeli Conflict is meant to provide historical and contemporary context to the subject in the hope of promoting a more objective understanding of the policy dilemmas, existential dangers, and obstacles to enduring peace that Israel faces."

The publication covers—among other things—the Jews' unbroken historical connection to the land; the emergence of Zionism as the national liberation movement of the Jewish People; the refusal of the Arab world in 1948 to countenance a Jewish state in the region; the origins of the dual refugee problem—Palestinian and Jewish; the events that led to Israel's control over the West Bank and Golan Heights; the peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan; the repeated reluctance of the Palestinian leadership to reach agreement with Israel on a two-state solution; and Israel's justified insistence on taking steps necessary to protect its citizens.

Israel and the Arab-Israeli Conflict can be ordered from AJC at www.ajc.org.
