Alan Dershowitz Presents a Powerful Case for Israel's Just War on Terrorism in New Book Terror Tunnels

Author of the International and Campus Bestseller The Case for Israel

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 15, 2014) - Ripped from the headlines, Terror Tunnels: The Case for Israel's Just War Against Hamas, published by leading independent digital publisher RosettaBooks with Gatestone Institute, describes why Israel's struggle against Hamas is a fight not only to protect its own citizens, but for all democracies. Written by Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz, author of the international bestseller The Case for Israel, Terror Tunnels covers all of the hot-button issues -- from the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, to the rise of anti-Semitism, to the charge of war crimes, to the prospects of peace, which includes examining:

  • The Case Against the Goldstone Report -- and Why It Still Matters;
  • Why Israel Must Remain Strong;
  • Why Mideast Peace Talks Should Resume;
  • Why ISIS is to America as Hamas is to Israel; and
  • The culpability of the media in perpetuating the conflict.

Known as one of Israel's most articulate defender, Dershowitz presents a powerful case for Israel's just war against terrorism. Newsweek describes him as "the nation's most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights."

"I wrote this book to warn the world that unless Hamas's strategy of building terror tunnels and firing rockets from behind human shields is denounced and stopped -- by the international community, the media, the academy, and good people of all religions, ethnicities, and nationalities -- it will be coming soon 'to a theater near you,'" said Dershowitz, whose visit to a Hamas terror tunnel originally stimulated his interest in writing the book. 

Terror Tunnels is a must-read for all who care about Israel, peace in the Mideast, human rights, and fairness.
