Appeared in Publishers Weekly on 2012-06-11:
As one of the Likud's most staunchly conservative MKs, Danon has devoted much of his life to hasbara-Israeli public advocacy or propaganda. Here, he offers a tendentious screed that makes no effort to convince anyone who is the least bit skeptical of the author's hardline views. Arguing that "Israel must take firm hold of its own destiny, with a ready willingness to act decisively on its own behalf," Danon suggests that Israel should rely less on the fickle support of the U.S. and should regard the disapprobation of the international community with indifference or disdain. Danon refuses to use the terms "West Bank" or "settlement," preferring instead the ideologically loaded "Judea and Samaria" and "Jewish community," and sarcastically rebranding the Arab spring as the "Arab Winter." Only about 5% of the book concerns Israel's future strategies, the rest being a revisionist rehash of why "the Jewish people's claim to Israel is older and stronger than any other people's in the history of the world." When Danon describes his preferred endgame, his extremism truly shines through. He makes the case for a "three-state solution" (briefly considered and determined to be utterly unviable even in 1967) involving Israel, Egypt, and Jordan and denying forever any Palestinian national aspirations: "Talks on the establishment of a Palestinian State must cease, effective immediately."

Review Quotes
"Danny Danon is one of Israel's emerging leaders and a force for keeping Israel free and strong. He unabashedly rejects the notion of making concessions and capitulations to terrorists, whether individuals or rogue nations. His skills as a political figure are exceptional and matched by his keen intellect and commitment to a strong and stable Israel. You will love the strength, thought, and clarity of his book."--Mike Huckabee, host of Fox News's HUCKABEE and New York Times bestselling author of A Simple Government, among others "Danny Danon has written an important and tough book about Israel's situation in the world today. Though I fundamentally disagree with many of his proposals, especially with regard to the West Bank and the two state solution, his is a voice of an emerging young leader whose views must be considered. It is written with passion and deep love for his country and is part of an important debate whose resolution will affect the entire Middle East, if not the world. Read it, argue with it, disagree with itbut don't ignore it."--Alan Dershowitz, Harvard law professor and author "Deputy Speaker Danny Danon, a leading thinker and voice in Israeli politics, has written a book that offers a new way forward for the U.S. and Israel. By passionately calling for a partnership rooted in respect and strength, instead of patronizing calls for more concessions, Danon makes us look at the future of this special relationship in a whole new way."--Glenn Beck, #1 New York Times bestselling author and founder of GBTV "A well-crafted and persuasive case, based on both historical experience and reason, that we should abandon land-for-peace for a whole new approach toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The Palestinians have made their jihadist bed. Now, Danon essentially says, let them lie in it."--R. James Woolsey, chairman of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies; former director of Central Intelligence

Description for Bookstore
A controversial insight into Israel's politics from one of the regions most outspoken young politicians
Long Description
As a politician in Israel's Knesset, Danny Danon has been a vocal opponent of disengaging in the Gaza Strip and West bank, and transforming the stalemate 'two state/one state' dialogue to include regional partners, at times standing in direct opposition to his own party's leadership. A well-known and frequent speaker in the global arena, he is the rising voice for a fresh movement toward nationalism among the generation of Israelis currently coming to power. Here, Danon shares this vision with the world. It is a bold and uncompromising stance in the face of attacks on Israel's sovereignty by other Middle Eastern nations as the United States sends mixed signals of support to further its own goals in the region. Danon dissects the missteps and wrong turns that Israel's politicians have taken in the past by working to appease the United States and not offend their neighbors, instead of prioritizing their nation's own viability. With electrifying zeal, he tackles the challenges Israel faces today to undo what he sees as a consequence brought on by years of acquiescence to US policy. Danon believes "US pressure on Israel is hurting Israel and will do nothing to advance peace," and he is not afraid to sever the close bond between the United States and Israel if it means peace for his homeland.

Danon believes "US pressure on Israel is hurting Israel and will do nothing to advance peace," and he is not afraid to sever the close bond between the United States and Israel if it means peace for his homeland. Danon leads the charge toward a victorious future with an invitation for the United States and the Middle East to participate in, and not just dictate, Israel's international relations and policies (as opposed to an Israel cuckolded with an endless array of caveats toward those who would see it fall). No stranger to controversy, Danon's unabashed insights are a welcome revelation in the current quagmire of Middle-East international relations. A leading speaker to both Jewish groups and Christian Conservatives, the Los Angeles Times says "What Danny says is what Bibi is actually thinking." For Danny Danon, this is only the beginning.
