The Jewish State must end, say its enemies, from intellectuals like Tony Judt to hate-filled demagogues like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Even average Israelis are wondering if they wouldn't be better off somewhere else. A country which once restored hope to Jews world-over now feels itself slipping. Increasingly, Israelis wonder how much has really been accomplished and whether they ought to persevere. Can Israel win the next military war for survival, whomever the foe? Can Israel defuse the demographic time bomb of a growing Arab population? Can Israel, a country that's come so far and sacrificed so much, keep up the will to fight? Daniel Gordis is confident his fellow Jews can renew their faith in the cause, and in Saving Israel, he outlines how. Gordis has written many popular personal essays and memoirs in the past, but Saving Israel is a full-throated call to arms. Never has the case for defending -- no, celebrating -- the existence of Israel been so clear, so passionate, or so worthy of wholehearted support. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert Blumenfeld.

The Dordogne town of St Denis may be picturesque and sleepy, but it has more than its fair share of mysteries, as Bruno, chef de police, knows all too well. But when Bruno is invited to the 90th birthday of a powerful local patriarch - a war hero with high-level political connections in France, Russia and Israel - he encounters a family with more secrets than even he had imagined. When one of the other guests is found dead the next morning and the family try to cover it up, Bruno knows it's his duty to prevent the victim from becoming just another skeleton in their closet. Even if his digging reveals things Bruno himself would rather keep buried. Meanwhile, very modern battles are being fought in St Denis between hunters defending their traditions and environmentalists protecting local wildlife. Neither side, it seems, is above the use of violent tactics. At the centre of it all, Bruno must use all his cunning and character to protect his community's future from its present - and its past. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Noble.

The Collaborator, a historical novel by S.L. Stebel, takes place in the aftermath of World War II. A high ranking Israeli official, Ernst Gottliebsohn, is accused of having conspired with the Nazis on the eve of his nation's first trade mission to Germany. Charged with defending himself, Gottliebsohn finds that he has no memory of anything that happened in his past; his life before emigrating to Israel is as much a mystery to him as it would be to a stranger. Unwilling to abort the trade mission, officials allow Gottliebsohn to carry on, but send a young Jewish-American psychiatrist -- avowedly "neutral" -- to travel with him, both to evaluate his claims of innocence and attempt to unlock whatever secrets Gottliebsohn may be hiding from himself. At the same time, a vengeance-seeking Nazi hunter, Captain Kohn, is avidly investigating Gottliebsohn's past.Is he the victim of false accusations, or the victimizer of his own people in Nazi Germany? Feeling assaulted in both mind and spirit, Gottliebsohn begins to experience terrible dreams -- images of people he couldn't have known, places he couldn't have seen. As details of a past he does not recognize accumulate, Gottliebsohn finds himself facing an impossible choice -- one whose alternatives are as unthinkable as the events that shaped them. 1.

Dahlia Barr does not suffer fools - or her own government, with which she is normally at odds. Shrewd, brash, and as tough as she is beautiful, the controversial Israeli attorney specializes in defending Palestinians accused of terrorism. She is also a devoted mother, a soon-to-be-divorced wife, and the lover of a handsome American television correspondent. To Dahlia’s astonishment, the Israeli security establishment one day approaches her with a tantalizing proposition: Join us, and become the beleaguered nation’s arbiter on when to use the harshest of interrogation methods - what some would call torture. Dahlia is intrigued. She has no intention of permitting torture. Can she change the system from within? Then, as Dahlia settles into her new job, her son Ari, a 20-year-old lieutenant in the Israel Defense Forces, is kidnapped by Hezbollah and whisked over the border to Lebanon. The one man who may hold the key to Ari's rescue is locked in a cell in police headquarters. Edward Al-Masri - professor, activist, media gadfly - is an Arab who has a long and complicated history with Dahlia. And he's not talking. Yet.

It is an unforgettable story of human beings on both sides of the terror equation whose lives turn out to share more in common than they - and the listener - could ever have imagined. 1.
