Interrogating Israel Anxiety

You’ve read about it before, but you’ve never read about it like this. An exhaustive account of American Jewish anguish over Israel, this is as good a final word as you’re going to get on the subject. At least for now, which, from the way things are going, may last an extremely long time.

Together with journalist Eric Alterman (who namechecked Israel vs. Utopia in The Nation in December 2009,) Zeek board member Steven M. Cohen, journalist Shmuel Rosner (whom I wrote about in IvU) and J Street chief Jeremy Ben-Ami, I got a chance to participate in the discussion.

Let’s Get Physical


Two and a half years is a long time. That’s how long it had been since I’d edited my last print periodical, the January/February 2007 edition of Tikkun. But, immediately after reviewing the final copy edits to Israel vs. Utopia at the end of June, I went to work as the guest editor of Zeek‘s Fall print edition. Hired to assemble the magazine’s first Israel-themed issue, I gave it the title Israelology.

To be released later this month, the issue will be given out for free to registrants of the forthcoming J Street conference, taking place October 25th to 28th in Washington, DC. Israelology will also be distributed to the venues I will be reading at on my US tour in November. The near-simultaneous publication of this edition, in conjunction with my new book, is a welcome accident.
