Book Description: The representative of the Jewish community and staunch defender of human rights, Foxman delivers a powerful blow to such ideas as 'The Israel Lobby'. He shows how old bigoted stereotypes have been resurfacing and taking subtle new forms. Foxman advocates forthright and decisive solutions to an international crisis. : Review: The Deadliest Lies was featured as the Editor's pick on the Foreign Policy Association website: '...Foxman delivers a powerful blow to such ideas as "The Israel Lobby"...[He] advocates forthright and decisive solutions to an international crisis, ensuring that this will be an important clarion call.': 'Foxman demolishes a number of shibboleths . a rebuttal of a pernicious theory about a mythically powerful Jewish lobby.' - Publishers Weekly : 'Today there appears to be a cottage industry of those writing about the Israeli Lobby. Most of the books to date have been neither serious nor analytical. On the contrary, they have been misleading and often fallacious, reflecting both a tendency to rewrite history and to misunderstand the policy process. Abe Foxman provides a highly readable antidote. Apart from explaining why there has been a tendency to find a simple-minded scapegoat for the troubles in American foreign policy after 9/11 and our travails in Iraq, Foxman offers a reasoned and systematic critique of what President Jimmy Carter and Professors Mearsheimer and Walt have written. More importantly, he presents useful criteria for how to shape an open, civil, and far-reaching debate on our policy toward the Middle East. Rarely has a book been more timely.' - Ambassador Dennis Ross, former American envoy to the Arab-Israeli peace process and author of Statecraft and How to Restore America's Standing in the World : 'Abe Foxman is not merely a tribune in defense of the Jewish people against its suddenly stronger enemies. He is a scholarly analyst of these enemies' falsifications. Not only that: his style is lively, decisive, and riveting.' - Marty Peretz, Editor in Chief, The New Republic : 'Conspiracy theories are a measure of a society's mental health; when on the rise, trouble lies ahead. In The Deadliest Lies, Abraham Foxman diagnoses the 'Israel Lobby' conspiracy theory and reveals how sick it is. In doing so, he does a service to all Americans.' - Charles Hill, Distinguished Fellow in International Security Studies, Yale University, USA : 'Abe Foxman, one of the most passionate men in public life, has written a sober, methodical, and laudably dispassionate indictment of well-known politicians, pundits, and professors who dress up centuries-old canards about Jews in more acceptable Twenty-first century garb. The impact his work will have on the credibility of the pseudo-scholarship he debunks is devastating.' - Robert Satloff, executive director of The Washington Institute for Near East Policy, USA, and author of Among the Righteous : Book Description: A representative of the Jewish community delivers a powerful blow to such ideas as 'The Israel Lobby' Size: 15.1 x 2.4 x 25.3 cm. 256 pages.
