My friend Aaron Klein, who reports for WorldNet Daily as its Jerusalem bureau chief, has found time between his prolific updates to write a new book, The Late Great State of Israel: How Enemies Within and Without Threaten the Jewish Nation’s Survival. The pessimistic title is no mistake; Klein feels that the thrust of global diplomacy has turned against Israel, and that the election of a center-right government in his nation may not be enough to withstand the forces driving Israel into potential extinction. Aaron is best known for his one-on-one interviews with Palestinian terrorists, but thinks that Israel and its allies may be the greater danger.

I’ll try to arrange an interview with Aaron this week for the Ed Morrissey Show to discuss his book and his pessimistic predictions. In the meantime, be sure to read an analysis from the front lines of the conflict.
