Book talk with Dan Fleshler, author of "Transforming Americas Israel Lobby: the Limits of Its Power and the Potential for Change."
Dan Fleshler is a media and public affairs strategist based in New York whose recent book, Transforming America’s Israel Lobby: the Limits of Its Power and the Potential for Change, offers insight into the shifts taking place in the pro-Israel American Jewish community, including growing dissent against what he calls the “conventional Israel lobby.” Former Ambassador to Israel Samuel Lewis has written that Fleshler's book "dispels many myths while facing squarely some perennial dilemmas faced by peace-seeking American Jews, and outlines a pro-peace, pro-Israeli, pro Palestinian and pro-American road forward for them to take." Mr. Fleshler's blog, www.RealisticDove.org, is what he calls "candid, constructive commentary on Israel, the Arab-Israeli conflict, America's Middle East policies and their domestic political context."
