For everyone whose fed-up with the Sharon-Bush axis, this should be interest:

NEW from GROVE PRESS:

WRESTLING WITH ZION
Progressive Jewish-American Responses
to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
Edited and with an Introduction by
TONY KUSHNER & ALISA SOLOMON

Amid the clamor of contesting viewpoints surrounding the Mideast conflict,
one perspective has been under-represented and even silenced in the debate-
that of the substantial part of the Jewish-American community that is
identifiably progressive in its politics and highly critical of the actions
and policies of both the Israeli government and the current administration in
Washington. Wrestling with Zion gathers together for the first time in one
volume some of the most powerful and eloquent voices of Jewish-American
dissent, protest, and critical inquiry: more than 50 poets, essayists,
journalists, activists, academics, and playwrights who hope to help liberate
American voices of negotiation for an end of the occupation, for justice, and
for peace and security for both Palestinians and Israelis.
