Why The Jews? sets out to under­stand and uncov­er the roots of anti­semitism, from ancient times to the Holo­caust to con­tem­po­rary anti-Zion­ism. It offers and doc­u­ments the the­sis that anti­semitism is a response to Judaism and its val­ues — God, law, and peo­ple­hood — and explains why anti­semitism is a threat not only to Jews but to all moral non-Jews. In this sem­i­nal study, Den­nis Prager and Joseph Telushkin attempt to uncov­er and under­stand the roots of anti­semitism — from the ancient world to the Holo­caust to the cur­rent cri­sis in the Mid­dle East. Why the Jews? offers new insights and unpar­al­leled per­spec­tives on some of the most recent, press­ing devel­op­ments in the con­tem­po­rary world
