DATE- November 9th
BOOK-Making David Into Goliath by Joshua Muravchek. 296 pp.; Publisher Encounter Books, 2014
SYNOPSIS-…traces the process by which material pressures and intellectual fashions reshaped world opinion of Israel. Initially, terrorism, oil blackmail, and the sheer size of Arab and Muslim populations gave the world powerful inducements to back the Arab cause. Then, a prevalent new paradigm of leftist orthodoxy, in which class struggle was supplanted by the noble struggles of people of color, created a lexicon of rationales for taking sides against Israel.
