New York: The Free Press, 1977. Third printing [stated]. Trade paperback. xiii, , 194 pages. Cover and edges have some wear and soiling. The former chief of Israeli intelligence, examining then current Arab attitudes toward Israel, indicates some hope for a Middle East peace, despite continuing Arab hostility and depending upon Israel's responses to Arab demands and proposals. More than half a century later, the conflicts remain unresolved. Yehoshafat Harkabi (born 1921, Haifa; died 26 August 1994, Jerusalem) was chief of Israeli military intelligence from 1955 until 1959 and afterwards a professor of International Relations and Middle East Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Harkabi had a good command of Arabic, a deep knowledge of Arab civilization and history, and a solid understanding of Islam. He developed from an uncompromising hardliner to supporter of a Palestinian state who recognized the PLO as a negotiations partner. In his most well-known work Israel's Fateful Hour, Harkabi described himself as a "Machiavellian dove" intent on searching "for a policy by which Israel can get the best possible settlement of the conflict in the Middle East" (1988, p. xx) - a policy that would include a Zionism "of quality and not of acreage" (p. 225). Harkabi was forced to resign as chief of Military Intelligence as a consequence of the 1959 Night of the Ducks. Following his military career, Harkabi served as a visiting professor at Princeton University and guest scholar at the Brookings Institution. He was Maurice Hexter professor and director of the Leonard Davis Institute of International Relations and Middle East Studies at Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

David Harris, a lifelong Jewish activist, led American Jewish Committee (AJC), which has been described by the New York Times as the “dean of American Jewish organizations,” from 1990-2022. He was referred to by the late Israeli President Shimon Peres as the “foreign minister of the Jewish people.” Harris has been honored more than 20 times by foreign governments for his international work, making him the most decorated American Jewish organizational leader in U.S. history. Educated at the University of Pennsylvania and London School of Economics, he has been a visiting scholar at Johns Hopkins University and Oxford University. From Wikipedia: "David Harris in 1979 began working for the American Jewish Committee (AJC). Since 1990, Harris has served as the Executive Director of the AJC. Harris is a leading Jewish advocate who meets with world leaders to advance Israel's diplomatic standing and promote international human rights and inter-religious and inter-ethnic understanding. Among the highlights of his career, Harris was central to the emigration of over one million Jews from the Soviet Union. For 16 years, Harris was a key figure in the successful struggle to repeal the infamous "Zionism is racism" resolution (United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379) adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1975, only the second time in UN history a resolution was actually repealed."
