Review: Ally: My Journey Across the American-Israeli Divide

Ally: My Journey Across the American-Israeli Divide
Ally: My Journey Across the American-Israeli Divide by Michael B. Oren
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Engaging and enlightening…vaguely disquieting as well. A sense of a rise of nationalism, of identity tied to mythology, and a biased view of history is palpable within.

Michael Oren writes of “making aliya” as a devout Haj pilgrim may speak of his journey. Such zeal…can hardly project mature secularism, and may well explain differences that arise, not only between nations, but between people of the same national origin.
