The very word Jew continues to arouse passions as does no other religious, national, or political name. Why have Jews been the object of the most enduring and universal hatred in history?

• The replicating of Nazi antisemitism in the Arab world

• The pervasive anti-Zionism/antisemitism on university campuses

Clear, persuasive, and thought provoking, Why the Jews? is must reading for anyone who seeks to understand the unique role of the Jews in human history.
