DescriptionReviewsContentsAuthors

Since its inception, the state of Israel has had a tumultuous relationship with its neighboring nations. Years of political fallout and military conflict have created continual tension in the region. Meanwhile, the United States continues to use Israel as a subordinate satellite at the same time as it imposes policies to be enforced by the State without thought to whether they are in Israel’s best interests.However, a new generation coming to power in Israel sees that the present moment is the crucial time for Israel to assert its sovereignty to the external forces who have mistreated the country. From this new generation, deputy speaker of the Knesset Danny Danon has become a strong voice for Israelis who no longer care to acquiesce to the demands of others. With an infectious ardor, he takes on the issues that impede Israel’s ability to fully establish itself in the modern era, caused to years of unquestioning fealty to US policy. Envisioning a bold new path to a final peace in a region that continues to argue over the same failed solutions, Danon shows how a victorious, independent Israel that is able to defend its borders and interests without foreign intervention is not only beneficial to establishing peace in the region, but to world at large.

Reviews

"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

"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 it—but 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

"[One] Likud politician makes no effort to hide where his political allegiance lies in the US election: The man who has been called 'the Republican representative in the Knesset,' MK Danny Danon...Called Israel: The Will to Prevail, [Danon's] book has a message about the need for Jerusalem to make its own decisions that is very timely, thanks to the international debate over the handling of the effort to prevent Iran's nuclearization." - Gil Hoffman, The Jerusalem Post

"Though Danon is in his first term in the Knesset, his profile is rising quickly on the Israeli political scene—perhaps more than anything else because of his unapologetically nationalist vision for Israel's future…Danon outlines his blueprint for Israel's future in…Israel: The Will to Prevail." – Uriel Heilman, Jewish Telegraphic Agency

"It is that will to break the silence that is clearly reflected in Danon's newly released, refreshingly honest, groundbreaking book, Israel: The Will to Prevail…I find it impressive that this young 40-year politician has written a book which has the potential to make waves, and allow people to understand what nationalist Israeli politics looks like. Danon is an ideologue, a man who has spent his entire life fighting for the Jewish people—and this comes across clearly in his writing…The book reflects past, present, and future…Danon is a rising star of his party and I believe that his book is necessary reading for those who are interested in the Middle East and the State of Israel." – Ronn Torossian, The Algemeiner
