With steadfast determination and no apologies, author Danny Danon, deputy speaker of the Knesset, chairman of World Likud and chair of the Knesset Committee for Immigration, discusses Israel’s need to defend herself in spite of world opinion and pressure from the United States government. Danon provides a detailed history of the State of Israel, as he elaborates on the founding of the state in 1948, the 1956 Suez crisis, the Six Day War, the Yom Kippur War and the Israeli strike on Iraq’s nuclear reactor.
The author feels strongly that appeasing the leaders of the Palestine Liberation Organization only makes Israel weaker and threatens her survival. He points out that a two-state solution is impractical as the Palestinian nation is run by terrorist organizations whose leaders will not be satisfied until the nation of Israel is wiped off the map. He proposes a three-state solution, where a regional agreement with Jordan, Egypt and Israel would give Palestinians land and other rights across these areas but not land to form their own state.
At the end of the book, there are appendices covering the general provisions of the Oslo Accords, The Council of the League of Nations, the U.N. Security Council’s Resolution 242 and Biblical connections to Israel and Jerusalem.
This book is powerful, moving and educational.
