This book is the testament of a veteran American immigrant in Israel-both to the richness and intensity of personal life there and to the powerful, affirmative spirit of the society as a whole. The book's opening section offers cameos from the author's encounters with Israeli reality in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Its much-longer second section gives the unfolding story of Israel's coping with security and political challenges over the past decade, from terror and rocket attacks to a global delegitimization campaign to reflexive criticism by other democracies. The aim is to set the record straight and portray the country's indomitable will to survive and flourish.

"David Hornik is a rarity: a highly intelligent, clear-eyed, morally incisive columnist writing almost daily on the unending war being waged against Israel by those who would destroy her and by their cheerleaders in Europe, America, and even in Israel itself. His articles in this collection, both those touching on his personal experience and those more in the voice of the commentator, provide vital truths that will enrich the understanding of anyone interested in comprehending the reality of Israel and its struggle for survival." Kenneth Levin, clinical instructor in psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and historian and author of The Oslo Syndrome: Delusions of a People under Siege.
"David Hornik is among the most incisive and reliable writers on Israeli and Middle Eastern affairs practicing the craft today. His hands-on, on-the-ground, no-nonsense approach to the subject, combined with his spare and supple eloquence, renders his work both convincing and authoritative." David Solway, author of The Big Lie: On Terror, Anti-Semitism, and Identity.
"David Hornik is not only one of Israel's most astute practitioners of the higher journalism: well-informed, judicious, and articulate. His book also imparts new meaning to the ancient Jewish injunction: "Choose Life." Edward Alexander, professor emeritus, University of Washington.
"This must-read book is David Hornik at his best. The use of his personal experiences to tell a larger story about Israel's greatness, both as a place to live and as a true 'light unto the nations,' brings his points compellingly to life." Ruthie Blum, columnist for Israel Hayom
"Thanks to P. David Hornik's accomplished writing, reporting, and highly astute analysis of Middle East politics, this book offers a delectable and inspiring ride."--Adina Kutnicki, American Thinker
"Hornik has become one of Israel's best-informed and most astute journalists....Hornik's writing about 'Israel's Struggle to Survie' (the title of Part 2 of his book) adheres to the French precept: one must laugh in order not to cry." Edward Alexander, Chicago Jewish Star
"Hornik's book is a compendium of personal and political essays he has written since he became one of Israel's most incisive journalists. Arranged in chronological order, they revisit in eloquent prose a besieged nation's triumphs and tragedies, its ancient stones and its modern cities, its beauty, its warts, the incalculable harm of mindless appeasement, and its holiness."--Ruth King, Family Security Matters
"The volume is a skillful blend of political and personal reportage, beautifully and informatively written, and a must-read for anyone who cares about this beleaguered, valiant country."--Janice Fiamengo, Frontpage Magazine
