Will Israel Survive?

In face of Israel's challenges, the country’s future can seem precarious. Bard paints a realistic picture of the road ahead with a hopeful message: Israel will not only survive, but will endure long into the future.

Bard G. Mitchell, Will Israel Survive?, Palgrave Macmillan, 2007.

While most people view the Palestinian conflict as the greatest threat to Israel’s survival, it is in fact only one of the nation's long-term concerns. Aside from terrorists seeking to destroy it, Israel must contend with tensions between religious and secular Jews, the demographic issues posed by a quickly growing Arab population, internal political divisions, and disputes over the water sources that are critical to its survival.


In the face of these challenges, the country’s future can seem precarious. Bard paints a realistic picture of the road ahead with a hopeful message: Israel will not only survive, but will endure long into the future.
