The Jewish-American Relationship with Israel at the Crossroads
Anna Baltzer, Noam Chomsky and Norman Finkelstein, each a leading commentator on the Israel/Palestine conflict, together span three generations of struggle for a just peace in the Middle East. In this public forum, moderated by Adam Shatz, they discuss the possibility that increasing awareness of the conflict among the American Jewish community is creating a more critical stance towards Israel. Such a separation between traditional allies could give new impetus to resolving a conflict that has, for many years, seemed intractable.
