The Liberal Betrayal of the Jews

Edited by El! Bamavi

Whenever Jews have been attacked — from the
Dreyfus trial to the Arab wars — liberals have been
slow to defend Jewish rights. Many condude that
Jews themselves are responsible for the continu-
ing wars against them and refuse to confront the
real cause: anti-Semitism. Wisse's book is a pro-
found attempt to maintain her own liberalism in
the face of these realities.
