(BLOG) Israel Through European Eyes

"This essay by Yoram Hazony is a must-read for those who continually strive to understand the relentless ideological assault on Israel in Europe, by opinion leaders, journalists, activists, and intellectuals.

Hazony persuasively argues that to those who view Israel’s very existence as the problem – who view the Jewish state as some form of scourge – sound arguments, the presentation of irrefutable facts, effective PR, and the best policy decisions by Israeli leaders don’t ultimately matter.

Those of us dedicated to exposing the distortions, outright lies, and hateful invectives hurled against Israel – consistently on display at publications like the Guardian – must go beneath the surface, and dig deeper to discover what’s at the root of this dangerous phenomenon. Hazony’s thoughtful and penetrating analysis represents such an effort."
