AMERICA AND THE FOUNDING OF ISRAEL

An Investigation of the Morality of America's Role

by John W. Mulhall, CSP
 
     
  Rightly or wrongly, willingly or not, every American, simply by citizenship, is involved in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  
     
  To give background to assess the morality of U.S. actions, the book first asks:  
 
  • Who has a greater moral right to the Holy Land?
  • The Bible portrays God as promising it to Abraham's descendants. What special moral right, if any, do they, whether Jews or Arabs, have to the Holy Land today based on those scripture passages?
 
  The Romans expelled some, but not all, Jews from Palestine. What claim, if any, does that give Jews today to that land?  
     
  Some Jewish families have lived there for more than a century. What moral rights does this longevity give them?  
     
  Arabs have lived there at least since the seventh century. What moral rights does this longevity give them?  
     
  The books examines each of these issues.
