"The Jews are absolutely indispensable to the world, asserts Liora Ziv-Ami in her book 'The Paradox of the Fifth Commandment which is the first part of an in-depth, comprehensive study titled 'What is Anti-Semitism?'
It is not because the Jews are better than other peoples that they are necessary to the world but because its future survival depends on the Jews.
'The Paradox of the Fifth Commandment' is a conceptual piece of writing, which presents a rather convincing rationale on the role of the Jews in the destiny of world, and why and in what way they accomplish it
Precisely because of its conceptual approach, the events and phenomena depicted in the book, which may be familiar to many of us but are perceived as unrelated and disconnected, suddenly present themselves in a new light as part of a single whole
