Summary

The Jewish State must end, say its enemies, from intellectuals like Tony Judt to hate-filled demagogues like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Even average Israelis are wondering if they wouldn't be better off somewhere else. A country which once restored hope to Jews world-over now feels itself slipping. Increasingly, Israelis wonder how much has really been accomplished and whether they ought to persevere.

Can Israel win the next military war for survival, whomever the foe? Can Israel defuse the demographic time bomb of a growing Arab population? Can Israel, a country that's come so far and sacrificed so much, keep up the will to fight? Daniel Gordis is confident his fellow Jews can renew their faith in the cause, and in Saving Israel, he outlines how. Gordis has written many popular personal essays and memoirs in the past, but Saving Israel is a full-throated call to arms. Never has the case for defending -- no, celebrating -- the existence of Israel been so clear, so passionate, or so worthy of wholehearted support.

Excellent!

As a politically conservative American, I do not agree with every idea floated in this fine book, nonetheless Gordis' book (Saving Israel) is a must-read for every American Jew, every Christian, as well as every non-Christian who is interested in Israel, the Middle East and the conflict in the Middle East. I go back and re-visit chapters from this book often. The narrator, Robert Blumenfeld, is superb.

Over promises and under delivers

An intellectual exercise that left me continually wondering what the author was going to propose. Left me without any practical outlook on what to do while it painted broad brush strokes about the challenges faced by current- day Israel. A most challenging topic that gives over to a disappointing delivery.
The narrator's vocal style was contrived and irritating.
